As with a lot of makeup, trying before you buy isn’t an option, so there’s always a risk of a product being being a bit of a let down and waste of money. So, we’ve vetted Holland & Barrett’s makeup range and picked out six worthy winners that you would NEVER regret buying.
All products chosen are also either cruelty-free or made using all-natural ingredients, or both! Good beauty karma, here we come…
After trying this, you won’t look back. Why, you ask? It’s light (not cakey!), it mattifies the skin yet still maintains a healthy glow, and is cruelty-free with an all-natural formula. Amazing.
Beautiful Me Foundation Brush, £14.00
“Natural brushes are better at applying powders”, or so the beauty rule goes. Well let’s put that one to rest right now, because Beautiful Me’s synthetic foundation brush provides great coverage, doesn’t shed its bristles like a natural brush and is actually more hygienic.
Cat-eye and other furry creature lovers, this black liquid liner is cruelty-free, great value and has amazing staying power. It has some lovely ingredients in it, too.
Beautiful Me Lip Gloss in Nude, £12.00
Non-sticky, long-lasting and in a gorgeous wearable shade, this gloss is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals. It’s also packed with jojoba oil which is great for nourishing your lips.
Sukin Sunless Bronzing Gel 200ml, £14.95
It may feel cold out there, but there’s no reason you can’t have a beautiful bronzed glow all year round, especially when it’s full of natural ingredients, paraben-free, hydrating and quick-drying.
Zoya Gia Nail Polish 15ml, £11.00
A red nail never goes out of fashion and whilst a little more expensive than your usual go-to, it’s for all the right reasons: chip-proof, easy to apply and free from potentially harmful toxins (the ones that create the smell… yeah, that!).
