I love how veganism is gaining so much attention these days. It feels like each day I am reading about a new vegan company or an awesome vegan product, and the cosmetics field is no exception, with pleasant surprises along the way.
So why not share the vegan love? Here is my list of 5 vegan cosmetic companies that you might never heard of, but I really recommend you try:
1. Cheeky Cosmetics
Cheeky Cosmetics is an all natural, non-toxic, vegan cosmetic company based out of Canada. Their motto is that natural does not have to be boring and they prove that with beautiful colors and a variety of makeup to allow you the ability to change your look with your mood.
Cheeky Cosmetic offer mineral makeup, and their website features tutorials about how to apply it.
What I like about this company is that they allow you to buy samples of their products before you commit to buying the full size. You can purchase their products and samples online, and they are also available in limited stores in Canada, the US and the UK. Also they only make mineral makeup, but their website does include tutorials about how to apply it.
2. Pumpkin and Poppy Cosmetics
Pumpkin and Poppy Cosmetics was founded by Kristy Cutsforth who is one of my favourite vegan beauty gurus. This is a full line vegan cosmetics company that was founded in 2011 and offers fun, colorful, non-toxic, often movie inspired color lines (check out her Queen Anne collection). She sells her line on-line at Esty.com and Artfire.com.
What I love about Kristy is her integrity in insuring that her products are high quality, unique, and non-toxic. Plus she is very connected to her customers for questions via her Facebook page and email which is very refreshing when compared to some larger companies.
LVX is a high quality, high fashion, vegan nail polish brand. LVX is pronounced lūx and is Latin for light; the essence of all color. LVX was founded by Branka and Rade Tomic and this company has a focus on on-trend colors that are socially responsible and eco-friendly.
They are available in salons and stores in the US as well as online. I was gifted the color “Viridian” by a friend which is a beautiful Emerald Green and I love it! It is highly pigmented, in style, and has very sleek packaging.
I am looking forward to trying out their other colors!
Furless is an online Australian business that sells high quality synthetic professional makeup brushes and accessories that are stylish, functional, and most importantly, they are all fur-free!
These brushes are perfect for customizing your cruelty-free makeup collection or for gifting, as the majority of their brushes contain brush tips that come in various colors such a purple and pink! Furless also carries a line of vegan nail polishes.
5. Arbonne International
Last but not least is Arbonne International. Before I talk about the awesomeness that is Arbonne, I wanted to add a disclaimer. I am a consultant of Arbonne. Right after my son was born I went on a mission to de-toxicfy my personal care products that my son and I use without sacrificing results. I am not really a DIY beauty kind of gal and I really wanted a one stop shop for the majority of my products. I found out that I had a friend who was a consultant and the rest is history!
Arbonne is a vegan certified non-toxic beauty and wellness company. The products are formulated in Switzerland but made in the USA. Although they are known for their RE9 anti aging skincare line, they carry over 450 individual products for all ages from baby to seniors.
My favorite product is the Makeup Primer also known as “Satin in a Bottle”. This product is lovely with or without makeup, fills in facial lines, and absorbs oil. Add a great eyeliner and mascara and you are good to go!! Arbonne is solely based online and you can’t find these products in stores so the fast shipping is definitely a plus.
