ELF Vegan make up CHEAP!
Being vegan for a while now, I progressively replace non-vegan items with animal friendly vegan products when ever possible. My beauty products were the next in line. Since I’m on a limited budget, I needed to find something good, cheap and vegan. Guess what I found??
ELF cosmetics (eyes lips face cosmetics) Almost all items are ONLY $1! Can you beat that??
The company uses synthetic hairs for brushes, they’ve replaced beeswax with synthetics. Certified by PETA too.

And as soon as I got these, I went back and bought more! Yikes.
The brushes are soft and nice. No noticeable shedding yet.
The blush in COY is a great contour color on my Asian skin
The tinted moisturizers that I bought in HONEY, LIGHT BEIGE, and ROSY BEIGE, all work well on my skin. It gives a sheer look – not cakey but it provides great coverage. Rosy Beige suits my skin the most. Honey adds a slight color and the Light Beige is great for my under eye bags.
I also bought All Over Color Sticks in SPOTLIGHT (good for highlighting), LILAC PETAL (pretty on lips and cheek) and PERSIMMON( which is pretty on lips, cheeks and eyes).
A clear mascara/eyebrow tamer – haven’t tried this one yet.
I also got some nail files and toe separators for my pedi days.
Also, although not shown here, I have previously bought an eyeshadow quad in DRAMA – which is perfect for night time smokey eyes.
My next purchase will be for a few more brushes, glosses, eye shadows and bronzers. I can’t wait!
