URBAN DECAY MAKE-UP=100% CRUELTY FREE
One of my favorite make-up lines is Urban Decay. Being a Vegan, that includes a product I put on my face. Although Urban Decay is a cruelty free company, not all of the their products are Vegan (I've yet to find a product they carry that isn't though) so they were kind enough to put a whole section together on their website dedicated to Vegan products. They have what is called Marley's purple paw which is simply a paw indicating there are no animal products in that item.
Urban Decay's eyeshadow is amazing! I wore this product before I ever even became a Vegan. The first color I bought was called Goddess. It's a midnight blue with lots of electric blue micro glitter. I have continued to buy this color over the years. Other things for the eyes that are Vegan are their smoked out eye pencils, glitter eyeliner, brow beater, matte eyeshadow, cream eyeshadow and my favorite beauty product of all time....the eyeshadow primer potion. This little bottle of magic is life changing in the make up world. It's so good, I'm writing my next article on it. Let's just say your eye make-up will not move, melt or disappear.
Urban Decay's lip products are wonderful. The XXX shine lip gloss will give you the glossiest lips you've ever seen and their blow lip plumper gives you a cool numbing sensation instead of the biting burn of most plumpers. Of course their lipsticks and lip pencils come in every shade you could ever want.
Other Vegan urban Decay products include blush, a baked bronzer and foolproof, flawless mineral makeup and mineral powder. They also carry a full line of make-up brushes that are cruelty-free and 100% animal friendly. Another honorable mention is their flavored powder shimmer...no explanation needed. Need tanned legs for the night? Their baked body glow is a tan without the mess of self-tanners. Realistic color without commitment.
Whether you are a naturalist when it comes to make-up or more of the alternative edge and can't find that perfect purple shade of nail polish? Urban Decay will have it! Urban Decay is beauty with an edge. It's feminine and dangerous. It has everything you could want including Vegan products and all are 100% cruelty free.
