Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
_
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options 💜

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence
❁ The Water Cream
❁ Violet-C Brightening Serum

VEQUE Vegan, 9-Free Nail Polish Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

If you’re looking for salon-quality nail polish that is cruelty-free, vegan, and doesn’t contain harmful toxins then you need to hear all about VEQUE!

After confirming VEQUE’s animal testing policy, I was kindly sent some of their beautiful vegan nail polish colors to try. Here’s the full scoop about VEQUE:

About VEQUE Vegan Nail Polish

  • VEQUE is pronounced like vey-quay
  • All nail polish are cruelty-free, 100% vegan, and 9-free
  • Handcrafted in the USA
  • Seattle-based start-up
  • Founded by a family of nail artists with over 100 years of combined industry experience
  • Claims to be a Gel-like nail polish formula

Veque Nail Polish Collection

I am absolutely blown away with the application and how opaque VEQUE’s nail polish are! Not to mention, the color options are so stunning and unique! My full review continues after I show some of the lovely colors I got to try!

The nail polish collection I received was inspired by the foggy greyness of San Francisco where each color is named after a neighborhood.

Subdued by an everlasting fog of grey inspired by #KarlTheFog.

Laurel Heights – Veque ($18)

Laurel Heights is a full-coverage taupe grey with a creme finish.

Sea Cliff – Veque ($18)

This is such a unique color!!! Sea Cliff is a full-coverage muted dark blue with a creme finish.

Marina – Veque ($18)

Marina is a full-coverage light grey in a creme finish.

Presido – Veque ($18)

This is my favorite!! Presido is a full-coverage muted green with a touch of grey in a creme finish.

Telegraph Hill – Veque ($18)

Telegraph Hill is a full-coverage dark grey with a cool undertone with a creme finish.

Veque Nail Polish Review

VEQUE nail polish brushes are bigger than most nail polish brands, it sort of reminds me of *hype nail’s Big Brush. I love a bigger nail polish brush, even though my nails are small and super narrow, but it makes application so much easier and quicker.

With the bigger and tapered brush, the nail polish color applies evenly with just one stroke and all 5 of VEQUE’s vegan nail polish were streak-free and incredibly opaque that I could honestly get away with just one coat!!

VEQUE’s vegan and 9-free nail polish are $18 each, which is on the high-end but after personally trying them out myself… I have to say they are worth it, in my opinion. If you want a full-coverage nail polish with an easy applicator brush, then you’ll definitely enjoy some of VEQUE’s nail polish!

You can find VEQUE nail polish on their website or at J.Crew!
