Can you get plastic-free vegan make-up? Yes, you can! I tried out a make-up brand that's made in Scotland and will tell you all about them in this post!
We've never had a talk about make-up before, have we? This is probably due to the fact that I don't use much make-up except for eye shadow and concealer. I have used make-up in the past but was never bothered to buy more when it ran out. I'm all about that eye shadow though, the brighter the merrier, and was always wondering whether there's a plastic-free alternative that happens to be vegan, and well the universe has listened to my wishes.
Sadly, "the main cause for the increase in plastic production is plastic packaging. 42% of all non-fiber plastic produced in 2015 was for plastic packaging, and it also made up 52% of plastics thrown away. [Earth Day 2018]" - Love The Planet
Here comes the good news:
without palm oil
It comes in a compostable pouch made from kraft paper, cellulose and starch, within cardboard packaging, and you can fill the mineral make-up in your own containers.
They kindly #gifted me my first order which I have tried out for a couple of months now! I really wanted to give you a genuine review of their brand, and see whether I will actually use it. And I can tell you now that I LOVE them.
I am using their vegan mineral peach and pink blusher as eye shadow because I love the colours for my eyes and don't like applying blusher on my face. That's how you do it - get creative, and think outside the box, it will work for your benefits! I have never had an eye shadow that I loved more than the peach blusher from Love The Planet. It is my favourite ever colour. Anyway, you can totally use the blusher on your cheeks too ;)
I love their concealer too, I apply it under my eyes or on spots if I have any and it works really well so far.
The cool thing is that it is surprisingly cheap! You will save money because you get quite a lot of their mineral make-up (more than what fits in these small containers that you can see here). You simply don't pay for any unnecessary packaging, and get free shipping if you happen to live in the UK.
Sustainability does not equal having to spend lots and lots of money on something. With a bit of research, you'll find that you can live sustainably on a low budget!
Much love, Viki
