When it comes to makeup, we’re all trying to find those products that we not only fall in love with, but can actually afford to buy without taking out a small mortgage or selling a kidney, and in today’s society its also becoming so important to support brands that are setting the best example for others and paving the way towards a cruelty free future for all.
If you’re getting into cruelty free, these are my absolute favourite brands, not just because I love their products, but also because they’re readily available on the high street and with the exception of a few palettes or gift sets, I bet you won’t spend more than £10 on any single item!
NYX Professional Makeup
NYX’s matte lipstick is without a doubt my favourite lipstick formula out of anything else I’ve tried, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen any reviews that aren’t absolutely glowing. The only item I’ve paid more than £10 was my beautiful bright eyeshadow, and for £16 I think that was still an absolute steal!
Long gone are the days when Barry M was only known for nail varnish and dazzle dust, and now they are smashing the beauty game out of the park. I’ve always been a fan of their original products, but recent releases like lip kits and highlighting palettes have been taking the beauty blogosphere by storm and did you see my recent post about this Clinique dupe?
This CF brand has been a real game changer, and while some slate them for it, Makeup Revolution has been bringing incredible dupes that are not only cruelty free but super affordable, as well as an amazing selection of palettes and other products. I can pretty much guarantee you won’t spend more than £10 on any single item, and you and your bank balance will be very happy!
A more recent discovery of mine, Kiko has an incredible selection of products from beauty to skincare and accessories. My favourite products are their nail varnishes, which come in such an incredible selection of colours, making the nail painting addict in me very happy! The stores aren’t everywhere, but there’s free delivery on all orders over £25 online!
You’ve stocked up on products, now get your hands on the best brushes in my opinion! I fell for the pretty designs but stayed for the great quality, and now all my brushes are Spectrum. They’re handmade, cruelty free and vegan friendly, and they’re now also available in Boots!
