One of the key cruelty-free beauty brands that is on everyone’s lips of late, is Drunk Elephant. The products you find here do not contain alcohol, animal fats, silicones, chemical screens or fragrances. Offering superior UVA/UVB protection and brimming with antioxidants, it achieves even more shielded support against environmental damage. Very lightweight and quickly absorbed, this is a sun cream I love to use every day.

Wave Goodbye To Filters With 4 Of The Best Vegan Concealers

Hey Lovelies!

Should you be (like me) a lover of all things vegan, things have never looked better. The vegan makeup and skincare range are growing day by day. Check out 6 of the best vegan concealers that will guarantee no need for Instagram filters. I am certain you will fall in love with at least one of these awesome products!

1.100% Pure Long-Lasting Concealer, £25, www.revolve.com

Okay, I understand this is a little more than we generally like to pay for our concealer – but this will last you far longer than a concealer pen, so it works out to be quite a reasonable buy. When I tried this product, I was totally smitten. Unlike many other concealers this formula feels so soft, blends perfectly into the skin and does NOT cause that dreaded cakey appearance that emphasises lines. For me, this is priceless.

The concealer is formulated with fruit and vegetable pigments, and is also water, sweat and oil resistant. It provides exceptional coverage that lasts.

100% Pure’s Concealer is available in 5 shades (the only downside). It is vegan and cruelty-free.

2.Gabriel Color Concealer, £15.96, www.amazon.co.uk

I tested out the Gabriel Dual Powder Foundation (from Gabriel Cosmetics) some time ago and was mega-impressed. The Color Concealer is pretty outstanding too. This extremely lightweight, water-based concealer achieves amazing coverage that looks totally natural. It literally blends in like a second skin. Additionally, being gluten-free and vegan is an immediate plus, too!

This concealer is available in 7 gorgeous shades.

3.Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Skin Concealer, £7.94 (MSRP: £20), www.skinstore.com

Firstly, let me just say how cool this brand’s name is! The concealer is usually priced at £20 but is currently available at the SkinStore (part of the lookfantastic group) for just £7.94!

The formula is creamy, yet lightweight and boasts skin-nourishing ingredients such as aloe, cocoa extract and vitamin E. These components work together to further minimise the appearance of dark circles and any imperfections. The outcome is perfect coverage with an even and healthy-looking skin tone you will adore. I love this!

This concealer is only available in 4 shades (again the only downside I can find).

4.Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, £9.75 (5ml) (RRP: £19.50), www.feelunique.com

Probably my favourite vegan concealer of all is this one by Urban Decay. The all-singing, all-dancing concealer ticks every possible box and ensures you look incredible even on your worst day ever. Most importantly, under eye dark circles are diminished without bringing out fine lines for a spotlight dance. Urban Decay have combined Japanese green tea to aid in this process.

Their formula also combines Matrixyl 3000, Litchiderm (sourced from lychees) and sodium hyaluronate that work in unison to enhance an ultimately brighter and more radiant finish.  This concealer is available in 12 shades and is currently 50% off – so grab one now!
