Makeup Wars: Drugstore Cruelty Free Beauty Picks

Product Sent for Review I Bought It

Makeup Wars: Drugstore Cruelty Free Beauty Picks

Today for Makeup Wars we're sharing our favorite cruelty free beauty products! I recently shared some great cruelty free beauty buys over on Babble, some of which are products I use a lot, some are ones I like or that my friends recommended. I decided that today I'd share my favorite, products that I really use, from drugstore brands.

For reference, I use the list of cruelty free beauty brands from My Beauty Bunny as my ultimate CF or not CF list. It's somehow always controversial whether a brand is (or isn't) CF, and I trust Jen to sort through information for me!

Makeup Wars: The Best Drugstore Cruelty Free Makeup and Skincare Products

1. Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion: I love that this lightweight moisturizer also has alpha hydroxy acids in the formula to help keep my skin smooth.

2. Orly Cuticle Therapy Creme: I go through a jar of this every 2 months or so. One of the last things I do before bed every night is apply this to my cuticles.

3. Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask: This classic green mud mask is great at pulling things out of pores. And yes, there is always a bonus of 33% more free.

4. Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Liner: This is a well pigmented liquid liner that applies very easily from a felt tipped pen.

5. Hard Candy Take It Off: Are you tired of me mentioning this eye makeup remover yet? I should find another one to mention, but this is the one I use all the time! I buy 2 or 3 at a time, I live in fear of running out.

6. Avalon Organics Tea Tree Shampoo: I have eczema and, yeah me, I have a few areas that flare in my scalp when the weather gets bad. I can usually keep it in control with a zinc or tea tree shampoo. If not, I need to resort to cortisone cream, not fun!

7. Wet N Wild Nutty Eye Shadow: This is my go-to crease eye shadow! I've heard that it is a near dupe for MAC Satin Taupe. I finally bought Satin Taupe about 2 months ago, but haven't even opened it yet! Instead whenever I'm doing my makeup I swear I finish, think something isn't quite right, and a little Nutty in the crease makes it all soooo much better! The $2 for a pan that lasts forever doesn't hurt either.

So have you noticed a huge difference with the Orly Cuticle Cream?

Awesome list! :)

I've heard a lot of people mention that they love Nutty and I should try that eyeshadow single. I've never tried the WnW singles.

I don't have a huge collection of Wet n' Wild but front & center is Nutty. I'm glad to know they are CF. Next time I'm at Walmart I'll look for Take It Off. I always need eye makeup remover.

WOW! I love all of the drugstore options! Great list!

You should go all natural and cruelty free and use coconut oil for makeup remover. It is amazing and so good for your skin too! I also use it for my cuticles every night!
