Vegan Makeup Haul & Reviews

I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve done a makeup haul! There’s so many makeup products I’ve been loving lately, here’s just a few from some of my favourite vegan brands including Mineralogie & Arbonne cosmetics..

For those of you who are unaware, Mineralogie is the leading provider of mineral based cosmetics worldwide. I’m all for any type of makeup brand that doesn’t test of animals! Their products are just gorgeous and so beautifully packaged.

First up is this Lux Creme Eye Shadow stick ($38) in Rose Quartz. I’m always in a rush so any type of eye shadow stick or cream is perfect for me. This twist up eye shadow is the perfect everyday shade and it pairs so well with a smokey liner. You can also apply it under an eye shadow to brighten it up, acting as an eye brightener as well as an eye shadow. It’s very delicate and soft, so I will stress to be gentle with it. I love using it on the inner corners of my eye, so pretty!

I am in love with this Pressed Blush and Bronzer duo ($49.95), although I actually find the ‘blush’ shade more suited to a highlighter. It gives a gorgeous and subtle glow when applied to the top of the cheekbones. I find the bronzer a bit too light to apply for the night but it’s a lovely everyday colour. I can test to it being sturdy and travel-friendly, plus it comes with a mirror which is always a win!

The second brand I’ve been loving is Arbonne cosmetics. A brand I’ve only recently tried and have been so impressed with the quality of their products. The two eye shadows here are in Java and Smoke Fumee ($27.95). Java, the darker brown shade is a matte eye shadow and Smoke Fumee is a shimmer. They’re both extremely pigmented and work so nicely together for quick everyday go-to. I have honestly been so impressed by the quality of these eye shadows, I’ve already got my eye on a couple more of the colours. Smoke Fumee is probably my favourite of the two, but you guys know I’m a sucker for anything shimmery The best part is again, it’s a vegan company so all the ingredients are natural and free from animal testing!

Lastly, this beau-ti-ful red Lipstick in Strawberry ($37) is one of the most gorgeous strawberry red shades I’ve ever worn. It just glides on and feels so creamy smooth on the lips, conditioning and hydrating them at the same time. If you have smaller lips you’ll find this so easy to apply as the applicator is quite smaller than a traditional lipstick. I’d call it the perfect Winter lipstick as it does not dry out your lips whatsoever.

Have you tried either of these brands before? Let’s chat in the comments!

  • What a lovely haul! I really like the travel friendly du bronzer/blush-highlighter. It looks perfect for an everyday light contouring. Both eyeshadows are beutiful. I love everything shimmery as well but I have to say the warm brown shade is especially gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. I hadn't heard from those brands.

    I'm all for makeup brands that don't test on animals too! I think in the UK all makeup brands here are not allowed to test on animals or have products shipped to them that have been tested on animals! I hope that's right because it's a fantastic thing :) All of these products in your haul are so nice!!

  • Have heard about Arbonne and have a few body products but I never knew they did makeup too. Everything looks amazing.

  • Wow! They look so good and pigmented. :) I haven't heard of these products before but I'd love to try it. :)


  • I've never tried any of those brands but they look gorgeous – the eyeshadow stick especially. I'm trying to be more ethical when it comes to purchasing products because I don't think anything is worth the cruelty behind them! I'd definitely check these out.

  • The blush and bronzer looks really great. I'd love to try this out. I'm all for animal friendly brands! x x

  • Wow, this looks gorgeous!! I haven't heard of this brand before but anything that is cruelty free is good in my eyes. xx

  • They are all such gorgeous products! I've been trying to research into products using only cruelty fee :) x

  • They're the best! I have so much support for them x

  • The eyeshadow stick is my favourite! Me too! Even if I have to pay that bit extra to know it's cruelty free, I'm all for it :) x

  • They're all incredibly pigmented! You definitely should! :) x

  • My favourite too! :) x

  • I'm in love with both! Java is soo pigmented & pretty to use in the crease! :) x

  • Ooh, yes they definitely do! Their quality is so impressive :) x

  • Really?! That's so good. I'm not too sure about the laws regarding it here, I'll have to do some research into it. After watching a few YouTube documentaries on animal testing (cue the tears), my heart just broke! x

  • They are such amazing quality!! I'm yet to try their skincare products, next on the list though! ;) x

  • They're all really lovely products, so impressed with the quality. The brown shade is the perfect crease colour :) x

  • They all look gorgeous! I love Arbonne too, their lipsticks are so good! They work well on my sensitive skin too.

    are you completely vegan? Or you just wanted to try vegan makeup products? :)

  • Loz

    I have an Arbonne blush which I love, have used their products at so many party-plan parties, but I've found I cannot use their skincare range at all…seems I'm allergic. Weird. Love the colour of the shadow stuck!

  • Amy Liddell

    I absolutely love the look of that shadow stick, what a beautiful shade!

  • No I'm not vegan, I'm just really passionate about supporting cruelty free brands :) x

  • Oh that's unfortunate! I've not yet tried their skincare range. The shadow stick is the perfect colour! X

  • Me too! I'm in looove :) x

  • It's really lovely! Just knowing no animals have been harmed, is a really comforting thought :) x
