12 Vegan Makeup Products You Can Buy at Target

We’re happy to see that vegan makeup is becoming easier to find, proving once again that you can look and feel great without harming our animal friends. Here are our top 12 picks for cruelty-free (not tested on animals) makeup products that you can buy at Target:

1. Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara

Pacifica is an all-vegan brand—hallelujah! We love its mineral mascara, which helps lengthen and strengthen lashes.

2. e.l.f. Essentials Tone Correcting Concealer

It’s hard to believe that this product only costs $1. Yes, that’s correct—and it works really well, too!

3. NYX Push-Up Bra for Your Eyebrow

We’ll admit that this is a bizarre name for a makeup product, but this dual-sided pencil allows you to fill your arches in with a light color and hide any inconsistencies with a darker shade.

4. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio

This cruelty-free brand features many vegan products, including this glitzy eyeliner trio.

5. wet n wild Megalast Salon Nail Color

Almost all Megalast nail polish is vegan (colors 201B-218). This grape color is really working for me right now.

6. SheaMoisture Prime

Prime your skin with this silky silicone-free primer, which contains vitamins and shea butter. Apply it under your foundation for a smoother look.

7. Pacifica Enlightened Gloss

We love vegan lip gloss. This one has antioxidants and is made with coconut to keep lips plump and healthy.

8. e.l.f. Studio Blush

We appreciate e.l.f. for making great, affordable cruelty-free makeup! Target carries five different shades to suit your cheeks.

9. Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder

I’ve found that applying this pressed powder with a brush is more effective than using a powder puff. It also does double duty since it contains SPF 30 sunscreen!

10. wet n wild Mega Slicks Lip Gloss

Once again: We love vegan lip gloss! Colors 560A-578 are vegan, with the exception of 564A.

11. Pacifica Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette

Grab some pretty pastels for this spring!

12. Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes

These cleansing wipes will help cool and cleanse your face after a long day. Use them after you wash your face to collect any grime you missed the first go-around.

Coined in the 1970s, the classic Earth Day mantra "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" has encouraged consumers to take stock of the materials they buy, use, and often quickly pitch — all in the name of curbing pollution and saving the earth's resources. Most of us listened, or lord knows we tried. We've carried totes and refused straws and dutifully rinsed yogurt cartons before placing them in the appropriately marked bins. And yet, nearly half a century later, the United States still produces more than 35 million tons of plastic annually, and sends more and more of it into our oceans, lakes, soils, and bodies.

This story is part of Covering Climate Now, a global journalism collaboration strengthening coverage of the climate story.

My journey to becoming an activist began in late 2018. During a trip to California to visit family, the Camp Fire broke out. At the time, it was the most devastating and destructive wildfire in California history. Thousands of acres and structures burned, and many lives were lost. Since then, California's wildfires have accelerated: This past year, we saw the first-ever "gigafire," and by the end of 2020, more than four million acres had burned.

For April's bookshelf we take a cue from Earth Day and step back to look at the bigger picture. It wasn't climate change that motivated people to attend the teach-ins and protests that marked that first observance in 1970; it was pollution, the destruction of wild lands and habitats, and the consequent deaths of species.
