So, you’ve been thinking of cleaning up your beauty act. No, we don’t mean washing your makeup brushes (though this is a good reminder to do so)—we’re talking about adding clean makeup products to your beauty bag. Sephora prides itself on being a mecca for beauty lovers alike, but particularly those that are searching for cleaner beauty options that also deliver on performance—products that give you the results you want, while keeping out the ingredients that you don’t. These high-powered beauty products are innovative in their formulas and ingredients—with added bonuses like being vegan, cruelty- and gluten-free. With Sephora’s literal clean beauty stamp of approval, we’ve rounded up six what’s-not-to-love clean makeup products that we’re currently coveting.
Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon
Bite Beauty is a fan favourite when it comes to crush-worthy lip products, but we love it even more now that they’ve revamped their entire product offering (plus added in some new must-try products) to be completely clean, vegan and cruelty-free (oh, and they’re homegrown!). The Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($32) delivers some insane colour pay off in a smooth and creamy formula, supercharged with superfoods like pomegranate oil and wild African mango. Available in 20 shades, you’ll definitely want to snag a few for your beauty bag.
Tarte SEA Surfer Curl Volumizing Mascara
Tarte has been a longstanding heavy-hitter when it comes to clean beauty and they continue to dazzle with their clean, vegan and cruelty-free ingredient list and impressive product performance. The Tarte SEA Surfer Curl Volumizing Mascara ($30) delivers natural, weightless volume in a sweat-proof, smudge-proof, flake-free formula that will make you a clean beauty convert for life.
Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation
Skincare meets makeup with this Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation ($71) that is completely clean and is worth every single penny. Not only does it harness the power of good-for-your-skin ingredients like aloe leaf extract, mastic and jojoba oil, but it offers a complexion-perfecting radiant finish in a buildable, medium-coverage, weightless foundation that will give you that lit-from-within look we all crave.
Kosas Revealer Concealer
Kosas Revealer Concealer ($37) is your tired or blemished face fixer-upper. This medium to full coverage concealer is super creamy and instantly improves the look of your complexion, whether you’re using it as a spot treatment or under-eye concealer. Using botanicals, this clean, vegan and cruelty-free product hydrates while concealing for a smooth, better-than-your-skin dewy finish.
RMS Beauty Living Glow Face & Body Powder
RMS Beauty Living Glow Face & Body Powder ($55) is one of those products that will make you question why you waited so long to add it to your makeup rotation. The superfine powder melts into a silky second skin and catches light to reflect and illuminate from head to toe and it works on all skin tones. Dust some over the high points on your face or décolleté for a truly goddess-approved look.
Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss
Become a lip gloss convert with the Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss ($18). Formulated with apricot kernel, raspberry seed and rosehip oils, this gloss offers serious nourishment and hydration to your lips with a high-shine, never-sticky finish. Available six shades that suit any skin tone, this product delivers on the promise of having the shine of a gloss, but comfort of a balm in a juicy colourful finish.
