Phyrra's Favorite Cruelty-free Beauty Products
Press SampleI Bought ThisAffiliate Links

Happy Monday! It’s time for another Makeup Wars! This time we’re talking about our favorite Cruelty free Beauty Products. Let me preface this with it’s hard for me to narrow it down, so I’ve tried to cover all of my favorites. There’s something here for everyone! From bright eyeshadows and lipsticks, to power neutral shades, I’ve got you covered for cruelty free beauty products. I’ve got skincare and hair, too.

I think it’s important to share cruelty-free favorites because I know that people who are new to cruelty-free beauty think that it can be hard to find brands, but it’s not as hard as you think! I’ve covered brands from CVS and Walgreens to Ulta and Sephora to Nordstrom and online! There’s something for every budget range.

Sugarpill Eyeshadows
I own almost all the colors that Sugarpill makes. I love them all. They’re seriously worth buying. The pressed shades are beautiful, as are the loose. You get a TON of product for the price, too! See my reviews of Sparkle Baby and Heartbreaker Palette.

Fyrinnae makes AMAZING eyeshadows and Pixie Epoxy, which is a fantastic base for glittery shades. See my many reviews.

Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation in N10
I really adore this pressed mineral foundation. It blends seamlessly with my skin.

Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I love this primer! It’s great for making my shadows vibrant and all day wear. See my review.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks
These are seriously amazing. Creamy, pigmented, moisturizing and long lasting. Love them! See my review.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils
With over 40 different shades, there’s a color for everyone. See the Ocho Loco 2 and the Black Market sets. You can also see the core collection here.

Paula’s Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator
This is an awesome anti-aging moisturizer that doesn’t irritate my skin. I’ve repurchased this quite a few times. See my review.

Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover
I love this makeup remover. It’s another one I’ve repurchased several times. It works well with waterproof makeup and mascara. See my review.

FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol .5
I don’t use retinol all the time (i.e. you can’t use it if you’re going to get your brows waxed or a facial), but when I do, I use FutureDerm. It’s gentle enough for my sensitive, rosacea skin to handle. See my review.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Face Primer
This is a great primer for your face. Check out my review.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This is seriously the best mascara that I’ve used all year. I love it and will be purchasing it again when my current tube runs out. See my review.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
This is a classic that is an amazing eyeshadow primer. It’s won several of my primer contests. See my review.

Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette
This is the best Too Faced Palette ever! I love the mix of colors and it’s perfectly sized for travel. See my review.

Supergoop! SPF 35+ Save Face Oil-Free AM Moisturizer Review
This is my favorite daytime moisturizer with SPF. It doesn’t get stuck in my pores and it doesn’t irritate my eyes. See my review.

Supergoop! SPF 30 Lip Balm
I love this stuff to protect my lips from the sun. It’s so moisturizing, too!

NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder
I love this stuff! It’s the best finishing powder ever! See my review.

NARS Eye Paints
These multi-purpose product have a wonderful texture and awesome packaging. The formula is great. You need to check them out. See my review.

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage SPF 50 CC Cream
This is a great full coverage product that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all.

Meow Cosmetics
Meow has awesome loose mineral foundation. I love their Pampered Puss formula. They also have Skinny Dippers, meant for contouring. And of course, beautiful eyeshadow!

BftE Cosmetics
I love BftE eyeshadows. Everyone needs the Coffee Shop collection. They have lots of brights, too.

Darling Girl Cosmetics
Darling Girl makes beautiful eyeshadows. They just released their Halloween collection, which I will be reviewing soon. Please check out their watercolor paint pots! They’re awesome, like a Nyx Jumbo Pencil in a pot, except they don’t crease on me. See one of my many reviews.

Silk Naturals
Running the gamut of skincare to lipsticks and eyeshadows, nearly everything this company sells is vegan. They’re all wonderfully pigmented and have great texture.  Check out one of my many reviews.

DermOrganic Daily Conditioning Shampoo
I don’t wash my hair every day, usually every 5 to 7 days, but this is the shampoo that I use the most and I love it.

DermOrganic Daily Hydrating Conditioner
I typically switch off using this conditioner with the Hair Repair Masque.

DermOrganic Hair Repair Masque
This is such a great hair masque.

DermOrganic Leave-in Spray Therapy
I love this for drying my hair! It makes my hair feel like silk! I love it. See my review.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and Pigments
Makeup Geek has a wonderful range of cruelty-free eyeshadows, pigments, lipsticks and gel eyeliners. I’ve done several reviews on their eyeshadows and I’ve got an upcoming review on their newest pigments. See a pigment review or eyeshadow review.

Beautisol Summer Glow Dark Self-Tanner
I rarely tan, but when I do, I put myself in Sinead’s capable hands. She’s the only one I trust to make me not look orange. See my Beautisol review.

Illamasqua Skin Base
I actually own this in 1, 4 and Au. I need to buy it in 2, whenever I run out of 1 and 4, which is what I currently mix for a custom shade. Check out my extensive review.

tarte Brow Mousse
I love this brow mousse! The texture is great. Check out my review and tutorial.

tarte Coral Crush Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette
I love this palette! From the beautiful blush to the pretty eyeshadows, it’s awesome. See my review.

Nyx Retractable Eye Liner Pencils
These work so well on the waterline! I love them. They don’t come off on my contacts and they’ve got a good color range.

Nyx Eyeshadows
I picked up a ton of the new nude matte eyeshadows to review. I like these!

Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner
Love these liners! I especially think Tommy Jet (black), Cute Robot (deep blue-violet) and Kanzashi (bright turquoise) are stunning. They also have beautiful blushes! I have the powder quad and the cream blushes.

Morgana Cryptoria Lipsticks
I LOVE Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks! If you’re looking for unusual vegan colors, this is the place. They also have great eyeshadows! I’ve got an upcoming review. Troll Repellant is one of my all time favorite shades.

Furless Cosmetics Purple Power Brush Set
This is an awesome brush set. I reviewed it recently at FutureDerm. All of their brushes are fantastic and they’ve become a staple in my daily makeup routine. They also make makeup.

Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
I love the ultra-fine tip on this black eyeliner! I want them to start making more colors!

Cult Nails Nail Polish
Cult Nails has awesome colors! Nevermore is my favorite one coat black. Charlatan is a complex topcoat. Mayhem is an amazing holographic top coat. Check out my reviews.

Literary Lacquers
Love these holographic polishes! So pretty! Check out my review.

I adore the Performance Colors Shimmer Stick Eyeshadows and cream foundation. Check out my tutorial and review.

I love the gel eyeliners for use in my brows, as well as the pretty eyeshadows. You also get a ton of product for the price. Check out some of my reviews.

Manic Panic
You know I love Manic Panic, since I always use it in my hair.

    • Marcia beauty info zone

      Best list ever!! I want everything you mentioned if I don’t own it. I narrowed mine down to one product per CF brand I chose and it was hard. I could have gone on and on. Love Picture Polish and I’m guessing that Ozotics is CF (hoping!). I need to stash shop to find some of these brands in my collection. I haven’t worn my Cult n.p. in a while.

    • retrodiva

      What an exhaustive list – you put mine to shame! I really need to try Fyrinnae – I’ve heard so many good things.

      Oh, my, freaking, lord. This is the mega post of my dreams. So much cruelty-free goodness and lots of brands I didn’t know were CF. I definitely share a few favourites with you – Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay. They are the brands I haul like mad when in the USA.
