You may have your favorite drugstore go-tos, but if you want to step out of your beauty comfort zone and try something different, we’ve searched the Internet for some fabtastic beauty brands with some major sass. From skincare essentials to spunky makeup finds, check out these six awesome beauty brands that you should totally fangirl over.
1. Kaia Naturals
Kaia Naturals was developed by product developer Mary Futher, who despite working with powerhouse brands, always wanted to create a simple green label. Pretty soon, the Juicy Bamboo Full-Size Makeup Removing Wipes ($15.50, kaianaturals.com) came into the picture, and the rest is history! Made with gentle bamboo and nourishing vitamins, these super duper makeup wipes easily remove a full day’s worth of makeup, without leaving unwanted traces behind.
One of Britain’s quirkiest beauty brands, Anatomicals boasts fun and one-of-a-kind beauty treats you won’t find anywhere else. And made without pesky ingredients, enjoy only the most exciting and cruelty-free goodies wherever you go. To beat headaches throughout the day, may we recommend the Headache Relief Balm Oy You Throbhead (prices vary, anatomicals.com) for instant relief?
3. Jelly Pong Pong
If you gravitate towards colorful and more feminine kind of products, Susan Chyi’s Jelly Pong Pong helps you get gorgeous and glam in a flash. We knew it was love at first sight, when we tried (and crushed hard) over the ah-mazing Lip Blush, which delivers a gorgeous dose of color to your cheeks and lips. But, if you want the full girly treatment, the Soft & Rosy Gift Set ($25, jellypongpong.com) glams up your complexion in no time.
Created with compassion and love, the natural Beecology line goes above and beyond the usual bee-loving favorites, by giving back with the brand’s very own Sweet Year organization. So, whether you desire natural soaps or shampoos, these honey-filled products are perfect for the eco-conscious cutie. Trust us, we can’t get enough of the Pack Lip Balm Assortment Tin ($10.99, beecology.com) for soft and smooth lips.
Essential for the mascara addict, FAIRYDROPS was created by Japanese TV personality Aya Yasuda, once she realized her own trusty tubes weren’t working to her satisfaction. Now with a loyal cult following, the FAIRYDROPS Scandal Queen Mascara Black ($24, amazon.com) has become an instant favorite, as it’s water-resistant formula, and uniquely shaped brush, whip even the tiniest lashes into voluminous shape.
6. SweetPea and Fay
Trendsetters unite as SweetPea and Fay brings you high quality, handcrafted products perfect for those fierce street-style looks you love. With a commitment to cruelty free beauty, nothing should stop you from enjoying this totally awesome line of liquid lipsticks, (our personal fave!) blushes and eyeshadows. To dress up your lips gorgeous, try the irresistibly cute Sweetheart Trio ($19.99, sweetpeaandfay.com) for some seriously girly lips.
