The Best Vegan Highlighting Products

The Best Vegan Highlighting Products

One of my favorite beauty products is a good cream or powder highlight. When applied correctly, highlighter can make your best features stand out and give your skin a flawless “lit from within” glow. Even on days where I wear minimal makeup, I have to wear a highlighting product. For this post, I rounded up some of the best cruelty-free and vegan highlighting products out there.

  • E.L.F. Studio Radiance Enhancer – This liquid highlighter comes in two shades. Spotlight is a soft pink shimmer and Sunrise is a bronzy champagne color. This tube has a brush applicator. All E.L.F. products are cruelty-free and all cosmetics are vegan. Buy online now.

  1. The Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo has been my favorite highlighter for years. (didn’t know it had carmine in it) That said, I really love the e.l.f. Gotta Glow studio blush (which is a NARS Albatross dupe). I think that one might be vegan?

  2. Bad news – the Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo is not vegan as it contains carmine. I purchased it believing it was vegan then read the packaging and was very bummed as it’s a superb product. Fortunately, the Too Faced Candlelight Pressed Powder is carmine-free and works swell.
