Update on Makeup Geek's Vegan Items

It's been a while since I wrote a post about Makeup Geek's vegan options and they've had loads of new stuff released since then. So I wrote to them to ask for an updated list.

They confirmed back the eyeshadows that contain carmine, making them unsuitable for vegans. I also went back to confirm which pigments, foiled eyeshadows and blushes are vegan and they have now updated their vegan page accordingly.

Makeup Geek have said the following products are vegan:
  • Regular Eyeshadows, excluding the shades listed below
  • Foiled Eyeshadows, excluding the shades listed below
  • Pigments (as at this date none contain carmine)
  • Gel Liners
  • Blushes, excluding the shades listed below
  • Makeup brushes
NON-Vegan Items:
  • Eyeshadows containing carmine: Bitten, Country Girl, Cupcake, Drama Queen, Mango Tango, Razzleberry, Simply Marlena, Twilight, Unexpected, Unicorn
  • Eyeshadow Holiday Bundle, as it contains Bitten & Country Girl
  • Starter Kit, as it contains Drama Queen & Unexpected
  • Ultimate Palette as it contains Bitten, Country Girl, Drama Queen, Mango Tango, Razzleberry & Unexpected.
  • Expansion Kit, as it contains Unicorn & Razzleberry.
  • Foiled Eyeshadows containing Carmine: Center Stage & Caitlin Rose
  • Lipsticks (beeswax)
  • Blushes containing carmine: First Love & Romance
Looks like I'll be ordering some foiled eyeshadows then! :)

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. I'd encourage everyone to be careful with Makeup Geek - Marlena, the owner/founder/CEO, sent me an email claiming that carmine and beeswax aren't animal ingredients because bugs are "NOT ANIMALS!!!!" (Yeah, she shrieked in all caps like that. She must think they're plants?) She also claims to have banned people for 1) asking for individual products to me marked as vegan instead of making every individual email for an accurate list and 2) stating that products with animal ingredients aren't truly cruelty-free. She also has no idea what's in the products - that SHE formulates - until they come back from the lab, which is alarming. I really feel, as a vegan, that she and her products cannot be trusted at all and would encourage everyone to think twice and use extreme caution.
