Bite Beauty is now officially 100% vegan! 🌱✨ @bitebeauty recently reformulated all of their products and has removed all animal-derived ingredients and by-products (like lanolin, beeswax, and carmine) from their entire collection. 🙌🏻
.
However, it should be noted that their Lip Lab is not completely vegan, yet! They’re working on making it vegan in the near future. 🌿💖

Bite Beauty's Vegan Statement:
.
"Yes, Bite Beauty products are vegan.
.
Our reason to go vegan was simple-we’ve evolved. We can create high-performance formulas without ingredients that come from animals. As we’ve been innovating with superfoods, we’ve learned we can get amazing results that perform on par with-if not better than-formulas that contain animal byproducts.
.
Further, we wanted to create products everyone can love-including people who crave clean, cruelty-free and vegan beauty."

I just finished reading ‘Slave to Fashion’ by @safia_minney 📚 and it has completely changed my perspective on the true cost of cheap clothes. ✨ Definitely a must-read to understanding modern slavery in the fashion industry and the need to support fair trade and ethical brands that are transparent about how their products are made with respect for people and the planet. 🌍🌿
.
"Today, a whole generation of shoppers expect to be able to buy cheap clothing - but these low prices are only possible because of the slavery and exploitation that exist in the fashion supply chain.
.
The price of clothes does not reflect the true cost to the farmers, spinners and weavers, tailors, finishers, quality-control teams and packers who are underpaid and overworked in the race to get the latest fashion items into our stores.
.
Many of them are forced to live and work in shocking conditions.
.
Workers in developing countries are often left helpless by a lack of workplace representation and unions that could speak up for their rights. As a result, we are witnessing a global 'race to the bottom', with developing countries competing against each other to supply the cheapest labor in a bid to attract brands to their factories."

So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Honeypie Minerals Review – 100% Natural Mineral Makeup

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

Lately I’ve been trying to switch up my regular makeup routine so I was excited to add Honeypie Minerals, a cruelty-free and vegan mineral makeup brand to my growing list of 100% Vegan Beauty Brands! 

I haven’t used mineral makeup in a minute, I was all about that full-coverage liquid foundation but I’ve been meaning to find a lightweight natural foundation and a makeup routine for an everyday minimal look. After trying out Honeypie Minerals natural mineral makeup, I’m instantly hooked!

About Honeypie Minerals

Here’s why I love Honeypie Minerals:

  • 100% Natural, Vegan, and Cruelty-free Mineral makeup brand
  • Handmade in small batches in England
  • Honeypie Minerals’ products are ultra gentle and perfect for all skin types (including acne-prone, sensitive, rosacea) with healing, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties
  • All Honeypie Minerals makeup is free from bismuth oxychloride, talc, starch, rice, harsh chemicals, parabens, artificial colour, fragrance, paraffin, petroleum, oil, animal derived products, preservatives, alcohol, fillers, lanolin, or any other synthetic ingredients.

Honeypie Minerals Review

Foundation – Golden Medium (£13.99)

The shade Golden Medium is for medium skin tones with a warm, yellow-olive undertone. This is a perfect shade match for me. The mineral foundation felt so lightweight, I didn’t feel like I was even wearing makeup!

Light to medium coverage with a very natural finish. Perfect for evening out my skin tone.

Concealer – Yellow Corrector (£7.99)

Since the mineral foundation is a light to medium coverage, I need a little help with covering my pigmentation and blemishes and this Yellow Corrector concealer did the trick!

It concealed my dark undereye circles and really helped to lighten the appearance of any hyperpigmentation I had!

I love how the mineral foundation and concealer didn’t settle into any fine lines like I’m used to with liquid foundation.

Blush – Peach Blush (£7.99)

This is a beautiful soft-peach matte blush. I’m very impressed with how pigmented this blush turned out and it looks very natural too. I’ll definitely be wearing this often!

Natural Loose Mineral Eyeshadows (£4.99)

Mushroom – Soft muted beige-taupe matte eyeshadow color.

Charcoal Grey – Gunmental grey matte eyeshadow color.

I’m not used to using loose mineral eyeshadows but these ones were really natural-looking. I used the shade Mushroom as a base which blends out beautifully. I think I need to experiment and play around with using different makeup brushes with these loose mineral eyeshadows.

Final Thoughts on Honeypie Minerals

Overall, I am so impressed with how natural, pigmented, and wearable these mineral makeup products from Honeypie Minerals look on my skin!

I’m definitely going to be switching up my makeup routine to incorporate more mineral makeup because of how lightweight and comfortable it feels on my skin!

Have you tried mineral makeup before? What are some of your favourite cruelty-free and vegan mineral makeup brands?
