The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Nail Polish Brands

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Nail Polish Brands

When I first switched to using all vegan beauty and household products, I was really surprised at how easy it was to find vegan nail polish. There are a lot of cruelty-free brands that offer a lot of vegan options and there are also a lot of brands that offer vegan nail polish too. A lot of people have seemed really surprised when they learn that all nail polish isn’t vegan.

People know about animal testing and what brands to avoid because of that, but not about animal ingredients that polish can contain. The short story is that a lot of brands test on animals, but a lot of nail polish also contains animal ingredients. Read more about what makes nail polish vegan and learn what these animal ingredients are.

Get Ready With Me Rosy Bronze Eye Makeup Video

In a lot of my videos, I’m wearing very similar makeup and a lot of people have asked for a tutorial of this look. In this Get Ready With Me Video, I share what products I use to get this rosy bronze eye makeup look. Featuring products from Too Faced, Pacifica, Makeup Geek, and more you can learn how to get this look yourself!

An important thing to note is that I am doing this makeup for on camera.

Beauty Without Cruelty Ultimate Conditioning Natural Mascara Review

[maxbutton id=”2″][maxbutton id=”2″]Beauty Without Cruelty Ultimate Conditioning Natural Mascara Review

Mascara is one of my must-have beauty products. No matter how simple my makeup routine may be it always includes mascara. I had never heard much about the Beauty Without Cruelty mascaras and was very curious to try them out. When one showed up in a beauty box I subscribe to, I was excited to be able to use it! The formula that I received was the Ultimate Conditioning Natural Mascara.

Claims: “Full Volume conditioning formulation with wild berry wax with the innovative spheres ‘Lash Lovers’ brush that creates length and definition with shading effect and lash separation as well as increased coverage reaching the full length of every lash.”

Ingredients: Aqua/water, Oryza Sativa Bran Cera (RiceWax), Vp/va Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-5 Laurate, Acacia Senegal Gum (AcaciaWax), Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Cera Carnauba (CarnaubaWax), Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera (Japanese FruitWax), Polyglyceryl-3 Stearate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Bambusa Arundinacea (Bamboo) Stem Powder, Benzyl Alcohol, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Biotin, Mica,Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.

Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Gluten free. Great mascara wand that makes it possible to easily grab each lash. Cute packaging. Good for a natural look.

Cons: Clumpy formula. Runs easily. Watery formula.

The Verdict: I loved the wand of this mascara. It has different bristle sizes that really help to grab lashes. This is something I wish more brands did. This mascara is meant to create both length and definition. On my lashes, I felt that at first it did a decent job of creating definition but not length. Throughout the day though, my lashes stuck together and I ended up with a terrible case of spider lashes. If I had only stuck to one coat of mascara, I think this would have eased this issue. Removal was easy – which is nice! The downside was that the mascara really irritated my eyes while I was removing it. It was nothing that a couple of splashes of water couldn’t fix, but I was surprised to find this from a natural mascara.

I think that the Ultimate Conditioning Natural Mascara is a great option for those who want a simple and easy mascara for just one coat. This mascara did not work for me and I will not be finishing this tube or purchasing the product in the future. However, if you are going for a very natural look, this could be a good option for you.
