Occasionally you find a vegan beauty brand that does a little bit of everything: deliver stunning, lasting pigment, formulate its products with clinically tested skin care ingredients, and look glam in your makeup kit and #shelfies—all while standing for humane treatment of animals.
One such vegan beauty brand is So Susan, a PETA-certified Cruelty-Free cosmetics line that combines skin care with on-trend colours and formulations. The line is also hypoallergenic and free of parabens, gluten, mineral oil, and phthalates. I recently got a chance to try some of So Susan’s most sought-after products, and they didn’t disappoint!
One of the difficulties of selecting a highlighter to purchase is often having to choose a single hue. Not so with So Susan Skinsider Highlighter Palette. The compact offers nine ethereal, pearlescent powders designed to complement the natural undertones of your complexion. This versatile palette is also formulated with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. Bonus points: Skinsider Highlighter can also double as an eye shadow.
Winter often keeps me indoors more than I would like, which can make my skin look rather dull, so I like to add just a touch of warmth with a dusting of bronzer. Sun Lounger Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder helps me cheat a sun-kissed glow. Like all of So Susan’s line, this bronzer provides an age-defying boost (thanks to Palmitoyl Dipeptide-6 and D-Panthenol).
This all-season assortment of concealers allows you to colour correct, hide blemishes, and highlight. Each creamy, blendable shade is formulated with Resveratrol and Micro Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin hydrated and supple. Also, the concealers are non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog pores and are safe for acne-prone complexions.
Created with super soft vegan fibers, this dense brush helps expertly apply and blend cream and liquid formulas. I find that this brush also works with foundation, especially when you’re aiming for precise, full coverage.
Infused with skin-loving olive oil, cocoa butter, and chamomile extract, So Susan Liquid Matte Lipstick imparts moisture to lips while truly standing the test of time. The velvety formula can last up to eight hours! One layer provides a potent stain while three coats delivers show-stopping bold colour.
If you’re partial to lip crayons but still desire a matte look, check out So Susan Cashmere Matte lip pencil. The soft, lightweight formula is boosted with anti-aging Coenzyme Q10 and yeast-derived Silk Protein to keep lips healthy and plump for a pretty, kissable pout. This lipstick has classic screen siren written all over it.
