12 Great Vegan Makeup Products Under 10 Dollars

It’s heartbreaking that dozens of cosmetics companies still test on animals. Now that we know high-quality, affordable makeup can be made without animal testing, why do we continue to force animals to endure horrible procedures in labs (e.g., being locked up, poisoned, blinded, and even killed) for the sake of our vanity? Please read this list of vegan cruelty-free makeup products that you can find at your nearest drugstore or Target, and start stocking your makeup bag the compassionate way:

1. Use a NYX Concealer Wand for under-eye circles, blemishes, or uneven skin complexions.


2. Physicians Formula All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder is great for all-over facial applications.

3. Bring out those eyes with a fun Runway Eyes palette, by Milani.

(Note: Only the Designer Browns, Couture in Purples, and Backstage Basics palettes are vegan. Other Milani vegan items are clearly marked.)
