My 5 favourite cruelty free brands
I have a lot of cruelty free makeup brand favourites, but I have 5 affordable brands that I love. In the 5 or so months that I've been transitioning into cruelty free, I've been buying more affordable cruelty free products. 3 are available in drugstores here in the UK, 1 is available in a few drugstores around the UK and 1 isn't available in any shops in the UK, but all are affordable.
NYX | NYX have become my favourite brand this year. I started off with buying their liquid lipsticks before I went cruelty free and then I when went cruelty free, I decided to try some of their other products. NYX are a brand that isn't in a Boots near me, but I can order it online. Their products are really good quality and aren't expensive!
- Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks - £6.50
- Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks - £6.50
- Soft Matte Lip Creams - £5.50
- Concealer Wand - £5.50
- Doll Eye Mascara - £7
- Liquid Illuminator - £7
Barry M | Barry M are a brand that I've loved waaaay before I went cruelty free. I've been buying their nail polishes for so many years and still buy them, they're incredible nail polishes. I've also got a few of their makeup items. My absolute favourite drugstore foundation I've tried is by Barry M. Their makeup is really good and very affordable.

- Natural Glow Eyeshadow Palette 2 - £6.49
- Radiant Rod Highlighter - £3.99
- Fine Glitter Dust - £4.59
- Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit - £6.49
L.A. Girl | L.A. Girl is a newer brand that I've been buying from. I first got their L.A. Girl concealer and primer. I love both of them and then a month later, I bought a darker shade to contour with. Their products are really good quality and I love them. L.A. Girl is a brand that isn't sold in shops in the UK (as far as I'm aware anyway), so I have to get the products from Beauty Bay. Their inexpensive and I definitely want to try more from this brand.
Makeup Revolution | Makeup Revolution are a brand that I loveeee. I first discovered this brand last year after hearing SO many good things about their eyeshadow palettes, so I went ahead and got their Matte 32 Ultra eyeshadow palette. I then later got another one of their palettes, highlighter, highlighter palette and liquid lipstick. They're an amazing quality brand, their products are highly pigmented and they're so inexpensive, I mean £8 for 32 incredible eyeshadows is amazing, right?
- 32 Ultra Matte and Flawless palettes - £8 (each)
- Vivid Baked Highlighter - £3
- Highlighter Palette - £8
- Liquid Lipstick - £3
MUA | MUA are a brand that I'm always amazed by. Their products are veryyyy inexpensive and such good quality. Their pearl mono eyeshadows are my favourites from this brand, because they're very pigmented and are only £1! I love their eyeshadows, pencil eyeliners and loose powder. I have a couple of products that I don't/haven't used. I don't use their eyebrow pencil because it's too dark.
And those are my favourite affordable CF brands. What are your favourite affordable brands?
