1⃣ Manic Panic’s Raven Mascara is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever used. No hyperbole there, I mean it. It’s got a big think brush and applies a nice coat that really adds some volume to my lashes without any help from a lash curler. And it’s totally vegan and cruelty free. ❤ I’m in love .
2⃣ E.l.f.’s Mineral Infused Mascara was great as well. It’s brush slightly bends when you apply it so it goes on really well. And it was only $3. e.l.f.’s Mineral and Studio line are vegan and cheap. Even better, they work. Their Essential line is not vegan, so watch out for that.
3⃣ Emani Minerals Organic Soy Mascarawas lovely as well. I accidentally ordered it in chocolate, but I liked it. Since their mascara passed the test, I’d definitely want to check out the rest of their makeup line. They’re vegan, gluten, paraben, and cruelty free. Plus they use 100% recycled paper goods for their packaging. Nice, huh?
UPDATE: Emani Minerals Mascara is NOT VEGAN. It contains beeswax. Very disappointing as it was marketed as “vegan friendly.”
4⃣ Lush just launched a vegan makeup line, so I rushed over to try their new mascara. It’s vegan! Their Fresh Wheatgrass Mascara comes in a bottle, but it’s got the brush inside. The sample brushes in the store worked fine, but the brush itself was a little short making it a bit awkward to apply. I really like the quality of Lush’s new makeup, but the packaging might need a bit of work.
BH cosmeticshas been reformulating their eyeshadow palettes, they have been removing the lanolin! So many of their huge cheap eyeshadow palettes are now vegan! Be aware that there are still some non vegan products on their website, and it is with great pleasure that I bring to you their new vegan list:

“When it comes to beauty, cosmetic and household items you may be surprised at the wide variety of animal ingredients that may be used. While some may come from sources that companies claim to be “cruelty free”, I personally only use vegan products that do not contain any animal ingredients. Here, I’ve put together a list of the ingredients that may be in your personal, beauty and household items to check for.
Some of these items can be animal derived, plant derived or synthetic. I put a note next to those and urge you to reach out to brands to find out which they use.”
Ascorbyl palmitate – This may be animal derived or plant derived
Allantoin – This may be animal derived or plant derived
Caprylyl Glycol – This may be animal derived or plant derived
Collagen – This may be animal derived or synthetic
Cystine – This may be animal derived or synthetic

The Greens believe that no animal should suffer unnecessarily. Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon has introduced legislation to end animal cruelty in cosmetics in Australia.
Every year hundreds of thousands of mice, guinea pigs, rabbits and other animals in laboratories around the world are burnt, blinded, poisoned and killed in unnecessary cosmetic tests. While we believe that no animal testing for cosmetics and their ingredients happens in Australia, we are not entirely certain as it is not against the law to do so. Many imported cosmetic brands which have been tested on animals are however still sold in Australian supermarkets, pharmacies and department stores.
Sign this petition to show your support for The Greens legislation that will:
ban the testing and sale of cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients that have been tested on Animals in Australia
ban the import and sale of cosmetic products tested on animals.
