We're so excited that some of our favorite beauty brands have been hopping on the wellness bandwagon by making more health-conscious, cruelty free products. Here are our favorite new vegan beauty products that you're guaranteed to fall in love with.
Tart Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara
$23 at ulta
Tarte's motto is "high performance naturals" and the brand has been offering a wide variety of cruelty-free and vegan products for some time now. Among them is their jet-black lash paint mascara. With just one coat of this ultra-black formula, lash volume increases 2700%. (Seriously, they did studies). It's made of triple-black painted mineral pigments that nourish and soften skin around the lash line.
Cote Nail Polish
$18 at COTE
Cote founders Mary Lennon and Leah Yari created the brand with the intention of taking the toxins out of the nail polish experience. With this goal in mind, they created a nail polish free of all of the major toxins and allergens that are normally associated with nail polish such as formaldehyde, toluene and gluten.
Cote nail polish was worn on many models at NYFW by layering nudes and pops of coral. To get the look worn by the runway models, use a base polish of no.8 and a layer polish of no.9 to create a beautifully layered look.
wet n' wild Gel Lip Liner & Balm
$2.99 (January 2017)
An old-school favorite, wet n' wild's now creating an array of vegan products! The Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balms glide on smoothly and Perfect Pout Gel Lip Liners contain Vitamin E and avocado oil for added moisture. The lip balm is available in seven different shades and the lip liner is available in six. For a vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free drugstore product, there's no doubt that this product is going to be a must-have when it hits store shelves.
Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation
$35 at Sephora
Kat Von D has made it her mission to keep her makeup line vegan and cruelty-free. Even though every product in her line is amazing, her best selling, full-coverage foundation is a must have. It stays flawless for up to 24 hours (Kat approved). A little bit goes a long way to create a perfect, even, shine-free matte canvas.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetics Glitter
We love this product because it's super versatile and can be used on your hair, face, body and nails. Available in eleven shades ranging from a simple beige to a bright magenta, it's lightweight and light-diffusing, so you can blend it in with a primer, foundation, nail polish, hair gel and more to create a beautiful shimmer.
