Top 5 | Ulta Green Beauty Buys




Continuing on with my Top 5 Green Beauty Buys from Sephora, today I have my Top 5 Green Beauty Buys from Ulta! In my opinion, Ulta has a larger and better selection of non-toxic beauty options than Sephora.


From mainstream brands including Pacifica, Honest Beauty, and Physicians Formula Organic Wear, there's always something non-toxic, cruelty-free, or vegan to choose from!


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






Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength 
$45


The perfect combination of a physical and chemical exfoliator, the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength is my go-to product for discoloration, texture, and acne.


I credit this product with reducing much of my unwanted acne scarring, and helping improve the overall appearance of my complexion. However, it is NOT suitable for those with sensitive skin. Click HERE for my full review.


This product contains certified organic ingredients, is Cruelty-Free and Vegan.

Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending 7 in 1 Mascara
$16


One of my favorite product discoveries this year has been this Dream Big Lash Extending 7 in 1 Mascara from Pacifica.


This volumizing and lengthening formula has the best wear and overall appearance I have ever found from a non-toxic mascara. It does not smudge, flake, clump, or transfer throughout the day even when it comes time to take it off.


It offers my lashes moderate length and volume and gives my lashes an overall feminine look without looking too dramatic or fake. Click HERE to read my full review.


This product is Cruelty-Free and Vegan.

Honest Beauty Luminizing Powder
$25


When you think of non-toxic cosmetics, more often than not, you think of loose mineral makeup---I HATE loose makeup. It's messy, you use it up faster, and I'd rather not deal with it.


When Honest Beauty launched their cosmetics lines, I was immediately intrigued by their Luminizing Powders. These pressed powders offer a satin finish to the skin and look flawless throughout the day.


The Luminizing Powder is available in 3 shades; Midnight Reflection, Dawn Reflection, and Dusk Reflection (Review), your standard highlight, blush, and bronzer shades for those with fair to light/medium complexions.


This product is Cruelty-Free and Vegan.

Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Trio
$25


I know what you're thinking---$25 for a TRIO?! Yes, it's a little pricey, but when you think about the price of one Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($19), one MAC Eyeshadow Pot ($16), or even one Anastasia Single Eyeshadow ($12), $25 for 3 shadows with the same amount of product as the individuals, makes it as inexpensive as drugstore prices.


The formula is these pressed powder eyeshadows is soft, smooth, and highly pigmented!


My mom even agrees, she loves her Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Trio more than her Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette and her MAC Eyeshadow Singles. The trios are available in 6 shade varieties; Soft Sand, Sable Brown, Heather Mauve, Ocean Blue, Forest Green, and Smokey Grey.


This product is Cruelty-Free, but does contain carmine, so it is not Vegan.

Honeybee Gardens Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Singles
$8.99


Another new favorite discovery this year for non-toxic eyeshadows has been the Honeybee Gardens Pressed Minerals Eyeshadow Singles. They're MAC Eyeshadows without the toxic ingredients or the Animal Testing!


I find that the majority of shades are soft, very blendable, and have buildable pigmentation. If you'd like to see swatches and specific shades, I do have reviews of Canterbury, Daredevil, and Porcelain.


The Pressed Eyeshadow Singles are online only, and are available in 14 shades on the Ulta Website, excluding the new matte white shade, "Nirvana", which is available on the Honeybee Gardens Website.


This product is Cruelty-Free and Vegan.

I do not consider bareMinerals, Tarte, Pur Cosmetics, Mario Badescu, HEMPZ, Neutrogena Naturals, or Clinique to be non-toxic brands, so they will not appear on this list.
