Top 5 | Sephora Green Beauty Buys

Brands are constantly being introduced and phased out in stores, such as Sephora. While you may not be able to find all of your green beauty brands there yet, there are numerous brands that are eco-conscious, contain healthy ingredients, and are on point with their quality compared to their toxic counterpart brands.

Here are my picks for the Top 5 green beauty products from Sephora that are fantastic quality as well as non-toxic for your body!

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon

This comes as no surprise if you've followed my blog for any period of time, I LOVE the Matte Creme Lip Crayons from Bite Beauty.

They are highly pigmented, have excellent longevity, and look and perform beautifully on the lips. I have reviews of Brandy, Sucre, and Tatin if you'd like to see specific shades and swatches.

The formula is 96% Natural, Cruelty-Free, and has an excellent shade range of 18 colors, including a white!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

The newest lipstick formula to the Bite Beauty line, the Amuse Bouche formula has been a little hit or miss for me. That being said, the medium and deep shades of this line are GORGEOUS!

The formula is hydrating, creamy, and packs a color punch! Whether you need an intense red, mauve nude, or say...a blue, there's a shade for you.

For me, the lighter shades under-perform and do not have the same longevity as the deeper shades. So if you decide to pick up a shade, go for a deeper tone. I have reviews Gazpacho, Verbena, Beetroot, and Pepper if you'd like to see specific shades and swatches.

The formula is 98% Natural, Cruelty-Free, and including their Summer Sweet & Savory Collection, has a large variety of 41 shades to choose from!

ILIA Illuminator

While this creme stick highlighter from ILIA is online only, I actually found this product in-store at a Sephora in Wisconsin, so you may get lucky and be able to try before you buy.

Unlike many cream highlighters that do not have an intense glow or sheen, this beauty is very reflective and reminds me very much of the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Creme, but softer. They both have the same high shine and shimmery finish.

This would look beautiful on it's own or paired with a powder highlight for an intense glow! The swatches below were a few swipes of the shade, "Polka Dots & Moonbeams".

This product contains 72% Organic ingredients, is Cruelty-Free, and comes in 3 shades to accommodate all skin tones! Fingers crossed, Sephora carries the full ILIA line soon!

LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant

I have blogged about these deodorants from LAVANILA in the past, and while not the perfect deodorant, they are worth a look if you're in the market for a natural or aluminum free deodorant.

At Sephora, there are 6 scents available, including a sensitive unscented formula and a sport edition. The LAVANILA Website offers a larger variety, including my favorite scent, Coconut Vanilla. I have reviews of Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Summer, and Vanilla Coconut if you'd like to hear about specific scents.

The product is 100% Natural, Cruelty-Free, Vegan, and does not contain aluminum.

VISEART Eyeshadow Palette 

The VISEART Eyeshadow Palettes have blown up this year, they were on everyone's wish list and for the price tag, everyone said they were worth it.

They were right. While VISEART is an online only Sephora brand, I found the Neutral Matte Palette in-store at a Wisconsin location, so it is possible to try before you buy. I swatched and played with the palette and was very impressed with the formula!

The shadows had excellent pigmentation, and the variety of shades made the palette very versatile and easy to create different looks with. If you love warm tones, you'd love the Neutral Matte or Dark Mattes Palette. If you're more like me and prefer cool tones, the Cool Mattes is for you.

I can't speak to the Satin Finish Palettes, but the Mattes, if you need a one and done palette, they are worth every penny.

The formula contains organic ingredients, is free of petrochemicals, and is Cruelty-Free.

I do not consider bareMinerals, Tarte, Josie Maran, Caudalie, Origins, or Boscia to be non-toxic brands, so they will not appear on this list.
