some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.
How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.
๐“ฎ๐”๐“ช๐“ถ๐“น๐“ต๐“ฎ๐“ผ: swipe โžก๏ธ to see a couple of real-life examples of products that are vegan ๐™—๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ cruelty-free.
1๏ธโƒฃ Garnier claims their Ultimate Blends and new Fructis hair products are โ€˜veganโ€™, explaining these products do not contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. But Garnier is actually not a cruelty-free brand, as Garnier does test on animals when required by law
2๏ธโƒฃ In 2017, Lโ€™Orealโ€™s EverPure Shampoo and Conditioners were spotted with a โ€˜100% Veganโ€™ stamp on the packaging. Lโ€™Oreal claims these products are โ€˜veganโ€™ in which they donโ€™t contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, but Lโ€™Oreal is definitely not a cruelty-free brand. Lโ€™Oreal does test on animals when required by law.
๐Ÿ” Look for products that are both cruelty-free ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ vegan to ensure the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ it doesn't contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
Do you know of any other brands/products that claim to be vegan but isn't cruelty-free?๐Ÿค”

This post may contain affiliate links.

Vegan Cuts’ Summer Makeup Box is comin in HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ with the best and thoughtfully curated selection of cruelty-free and vegan makeup products to use this Summer!

The theme for Vegan Cuts’ Summer Makeup Box is Poolside Glamour. The box contains 4 full-size vegan makeup products + a set of vegan nail stickers.

You can still get your hands on the Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box as they’re still available to purchase and they ship every Tues/Thurs.

If you’re not familiar with Vegan Cuts’ Makeup Box, this is their quarterly subscription box. Unlike their Beauty Box, which is a monthly subscription, Vegan Cuts’ Makeup Box is available every 3 months and only includes makeup products, no skin or hair care products. You get 4-5 full-size (not sample sizes) of 100% vegan makeup products that have not been tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box

The makeup box is perfect for someone who is new to cruelty-free and vegan makeup or for someone who loves makeup in general. They also make for some thoughtful and fun gifts year-round!

You can purchase one box for US$39.95 or subscribe annually to get 4 boxes per year for US$37.45/box, which is a total savings of $10. If you change your mind, you can cancel your renewal at any time. Vegan Cuts also ships to Canada and Internationally!

OK, let’s now get into what was included inside the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box!

Vegan Cuts Summer Makeup Box

IBY Beauty – Poolside Eyeshadow Palette

IBY Beauty – Poolside Eyeshadow Palette ($20)

I get so excited when a beauty box includes an eyeshadow palette, especially one as large as this 12-shade palette! I think this eyeshadow palette is the inspiration behind the Poolside Glamour theme of the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, as it’s appropriately named Poolside. I like how this palette is free of talc and mineral oil and includes a bunch of fun shimmer colors. Most of the shades were very pigmented and easy to blend, the only color I had an issue with was Sunny Skies, it was a bit powdery in the pan. Other than that, these are fun colors to play and wear in the Summertime!

Bali Balm – Vegan Lip Balm

Bali Balm – Grapefruit & Bergamot Lip Balm ($26)

Bali Balm is a brand I’ve never heard of before which is why I love Vegan Cuts Makeup Boxes, they have introduced me to so many new-to-me cruelty-free brands! First, the packaging of this vegan lip balm is so luxurious. The box is so next level for a lip balm that I’m definitely going to keep and reuse it! Finding a good vegan lip balm is such a challenge because most balms contain beeswax, but not this one from Bali Balm. It’s made with 100% natural ingredients and it’s amazing! It’s nourishing keeping my lips feeling moisturized and it doesn’t have that waxy feel to it like other balms I’ve tried. I would definitely like to try some more of Bali Balm’s other lip balm flavors in the future!

Manna Kadar – Diamond Dust Vegan Roll-On Highlighter in Pixie

Manna Kadar Cosmetics – Diamond Dust Roll-on Eyeshadow in Pixie ($19)

I’m totally for multi-use cosmetics and this diamond dust roll-on is great to use as an eyeshadow, highlighter, or lip topper! It’s pigmented and easily blendable. The roll-on applicator makes it super easy to apply. It’s also compact, perfect for travelling with you.

100% Pure – Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Vegan Lipstick

100% Pure – Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick ($30)

I love it when a beauty/makeup box includes something from 100% Pure! I love this cruelty-free and vegan-friendly brand but some of their products are a bit pricey which is why I love it when I get to try some of their products in a makeup box like Vegan Cuts. I received their vegan lipstick in the shade Plume Pink, a nude pink mauve. You can pick from 6 of their gorgeous lipstick shades when you subscribe to the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, which is awesome that you get to customize your order.

Deco Miami – Nail Art Stickers

Deco Miami – Nail Art Stickers ($8)

These are really cute nail stickers! The metallic ones are really cool. These nail stickers are perfect for someone like me who sucks at doing nail art but still want some fun designs on their nails without the hassle. I appreciate how Vegan Cuts includes items like these $8 nail stickers that I wouldn’t have tried on my own if it weren’t for their subscription box!

My Thoughts

After trying out all of the vegan makeup products in the Summer Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, I’m seriously impressed and will say that this is probably one of my favorite beauty boxes I’ve ever received! I loved all the makeup products and I’m so happy I got to discover from new cruelty-free brands and try new things that I wouldn’t have typically bought on my own like the fun nail stickers if they weren’t included in the season’s Vegan Cuts Makeup Box!

The total value of products in this season’s box is $103!
