Alien on Toast... it's what you think you'd asked for when you tell people you're vegan. This blog is dedicated to all things vegan from someone who lives in a pretty non-vegan world! Stay tuned for food, beauty products/makeup, recipes or restaurant/product reviews.... along with a healthy smattering of bad food photography, half eaten leftovers and bad puns.
I recently wrote to the balm, because when I was in NY, I bought one of their overshadows after reading the ingredients list and not seeing anything animal based on it. However, when I googled at home, I couldn't find it on any of the lists of other cruelty free blogs.
So I wrote to them and they sent me a list of their vegan items. Again, the overshadows were not on it so, after double check the ingredients to make sure I didn't miss something obvious, I wrote back for clarification. They told me they'd check with their lab and then the next day confirmed that all the overshadows are vegan too, hurrah. So in full, here is the list of vegan options from The Balm: Mary-Lou Manizer (Highlighter, Shadow & Primer) Sexy Mama (Anti Shine Translucent Powder) Bahama Mama (Bronzer) Read My Lips (Lip Glosses) I am 99% sure these are called "Pretty Smart" glosses in the UK, as the shade names are identical to those listed on the Balm's site for Read My Lips! What's Your Type? (Mascaras) Schwing (Eyeliner) INSTAIN (blushes) balmShelter (tinted moisturizer) Put a Lid On It (eyeshadow primer) Stainiac (Lip & Cheek stain) Overshadows
You guys have probably heard me rave about the Mary-Lou Manizer (seriously, you need it!)
And look at the Overshadow; this is No Money No Honey, HOW gorgeous, right?
You can buy The Balm in the UK from loads of online retailers, including Debenhams, Feel Unique and Superdrug's Website,
