If you’re wondering what vegan and cruelty free make I use–here’s a list! All of the brands I use are Logical Harmony approved! I usually don’t buy from brands that are owned by parent companies who test on animals, but some of the brands I have were sold to companies who test after I purchased. (Check the Logical Harmony list before buying if you’re curious about parent companies.)
I’ll keep this list updated as I try more products. This may seem like a ton of stuff to makeup minimalists or not much to beauty bloggers–it’s all relative. 🙂 Everything I have so far I either bought myself or was gifted from friends.

Products I Returned or Decluttered
Arbonne Concealer (Light)–This was too dark for me.
ColourPop Ulta Glossy Lip (Sookie)–I wasn’t a big fan of the formula of this one.
Cover FX Contour Kit (N Light)–I so wanted to like this palette after hearing people rave about it, but the contour colors look weird and orange on me, so I returned it.
Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops-A + Jasmine –Mentioned in an Empties post.
e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Palette –I didn’t love these because you have to scrape them to get pigment.
e.l.f. BB Cream SPF 20 (Fair) –Didn’t look good on my skin.
e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder (Fair/Light)
e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops –This was a greasy mess/I didn’t like it.
e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner (Black)
e.l.f. Expert Liquid Liner (Jet Black)
e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation (Porcelain)–Sadly this one doesn’t give me a flawless finish–it doesn’t give me much coverage but still manages to sink into my fine lines.
✔ e.l.f. HD Lifting Concealer (Fair)
e.l.f. Illuminating Palette–This broke, but I didn’t use it much anyways.
✖ e.l.f. Lip Kiss Balm (Bare Kiss) –The stick broke off when I opened it the 1st time.
e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set (Clear)– I didn’t like it/the sprayer was crap.
e.l.f. Mineral Face Primer (Green)–I bought this on a whim because I thought the green tone adjusting would help cancel out the redness in my face, but I don’t like the formula of it (I think it’s meant for oily skin, & I have dry skin).
e.l.f. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer (Pearl)
e.l.f. Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter (Fair/Glow)
Everyday Minerals Matte Mineral Base (Rosy beige 3C)
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick (Masochist & Unicorn Blood)–Old, dried out.
Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer– I returned this one since I got it to mix with the Lock-It Foundation and returned that. It worked fine though.
Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation (L45 Neutral)- This foundation looks great on me at first, and I love how full coverage it is, but it starts to look cakey and feel heavy throughout the day. I didn’t hate it and may try it again in the future though (I returned it).
Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil (Touch)
Mineral Fusion Liquid Lip Gloss (Enlighten)
Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick (Compassion Passion & Nudie Red)–I used to like these and wear them a lot, but they just got old and dried out.
Pacifica Dreamy Cover Bare-Faced Serum Foundation (Fair/Light)- This one was super liquidy/oily, and it stuck to dry patches I didn’t even know I had and looked patchy. I bought it on sale though, so it’s possible it was because it was old (I returned it).
Pacifica Stunning Brows Eyebrow Gloss & Set (Clear) –Chunky and didn’t work well. I didn’t use it/just ended up throwing it out.
Sonia Kashuk Soft Focus Satin Matte Foundation (Vanilla) –Mentioned in April Beauty Faves & Fails.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Lash Adhesive (Black) –Old/expired
The Balm Schwing (Black) –This one worked pretty well, but it just got old (& I prefer my Kat Von D Tattoo liner.)
The Balm What’s Your Type? The Body Builder Mascara –This one added lots of volume to my lashes (but also made them stick together). I liked it, but it got old so I decluttered it.
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer (Light Ivory)
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation (Rose Ivory)–I really wanted to like this foundation because so many people love it, but it looks dry and patchy on my skin (even after trying all of the tricks like exfoliating, mixing it with oil, using a damp beauty blender etc.), and I hate that it smells like paint.
