Nobody likes the C word in the first week of November... but we have to talk about it. Now the ghosts, ghouls and fireworks are almost over its time to think about Christmas! And if you are anything like us, you will be be hoping the big guy in the red suit comes loaded with new make up and fresh supplies of trusty old favourites.
Stuck for gift ideas? Not a clue what to ask for? Fear not, we are here to help. We have put together a list of 5 cruelty free and vegan products that should be at the top of your Christmas list,
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
This best selling concealer ( one every 12 seconds apparently!! ) is an absolute must have item. Cruelty Free and Vegan, with a flawless matte finish, this concealer is super blendable.
It is so easy to apply and really does give excellent coverage. Better still, it won't flake or crease, thanks to the mango seeds and Shea butter the skin is left nourished and a little really does go a long way. With 30 shades available, it makes it so easy to pick the right one for you. If you are looking for your next concealer, you cannot go wrong with this.
Tarte Shape Concealer is priced at £22 and available from tartecosmetics.com
Kat Von D Lock It Foundation
Kat Von D Beauty is 100% Cruelty free and has made a commitment to go fully vegan and looking at the #Vegan section of the brand's website and endlessly scrolling down the offerings, you can see just how committed they are. One of our favourites is the Lock It Foundation.
This liquid foundation is available in 30 shades and delivers flexible coverage ( one pea size drop for medium coverage , two for full ). Offering a flawless matte finish that's water and fade proof, this foundation is long wearing and transfer resistant. We love it!
Kat Von D Lock It Foundation is priced around £27 and is available internationally from katvondbeauty.com and in the UK from Debenhams
Jeffree Star Alien Palette
Now we don't want to be getting involved in any ( vegan substitute ) beef between Kat Von D and Jeffree Star, so we thought it best to include Jeffree's brand new Alien Palette. It also happens to look flipping amazing!
Packaged in a pink alien head tin, this eye shadow palette is cruelty free and vegan. Offering 18 matte and shimmer shades using the same formula as Jeffree Star's Blood Sugar palette, this selection of creatively named cool tones with bursts of yellow, purple gold and green looks so exciting!
Launched on 9th November 2018, it is expected to retail at around £40 find out more at jeffreestarcosmetics.com
