Vegan matte lipsticks and lip stains

Hello Tumblr! Because I absolutely love matte lips I have decided to put together a list of vegan beauty companies linking you to their ranges of matte lipsticks/stains…

Pretty Zombie Cosmetics (pictured above in the shade ‘Zombettie’)
Dose of Colors
Aromi Beauty
Melt Cosmetics

I have yet to try all of them so please feel free to add any reviews, more suggestions or if you think a product shouldn’t be listed!

Please also note that Lime Crime are not listed for a reason.


Here’s round two of the hunt for the perfect vegan mascara. The first round was so/so, but I had a lot of luck this round.

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 Mascara was 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.

5⃣  Larénim’s Mineralash Mascara was just okay. I should have tried the Lash Dance, but it was $30 and I’m on a budget.

✳ Well, that wraps up my vegan mascara hunt. Have you tried any of these? I’m happy with what I found. I’ll cover blush and lipstick next. #vegansofig

Vegan Makeup!

Yes is never tested on animals but we also have specific products that are vegan!

These are a list of our Vegan Makeup Products:

BB Flawless Complexion Enhancer:

Apply this all-in-one moisturizer, treatment, and foundation as a single-step cream to help even out skin tone and complexion, and to help protect your skin’s youthful appearance.

This multitasking cream moisturizes, perfects, protects, and works beautifully as a lightweight foundation on its own. It provides a flawless appearance and fights shine to give a natural-looking matte finish. Consider it your skin’s new best friend.

Moodstruck Concealers:

Moodstruck mineral-based concealer powders provide a flawless, naturally-luminous finish that can be used wet or dry while feeling as if you aren’t wearing any makeup at all. It looks like a powder, feels like silk, and provides a flawless, lightweight, matte-finish coverage. Use wet for sculpting and highlighting and as a lightweight foundation that doesn’t feel caked on. Use dry for blending, smoothing, and preventing face “shine”. 

Moodstruck Blushers:

A little goes a long way! Moodstruck mineral-based, highly-pigmented Blushers that can also be used as lip color. Made with 100% mineral-based pigment powders. 


Versatile beauty application in full bloom! Pure and natural rose water. Use as a quick splash of revitalizing moisture for a botanical boost or mix with Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders for a smooth and creamy application.

Animal ingredient list

Article entirety from  : Logical Harmony

“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.”

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.



A Guide to Vegan Makeup

This is amazing for people who are new to veganism and not sure where to start with makeup. I wish something like this was around when I first went vegan. Spread the word, be cruelty free!
