Swap YouTuber Favourites for Green Beauty Alternatives

Swap YouTuber Favourites for Green Beauty Natural Organic Alternatives
Even though I am part of the Green Beauty Community on YouTube, I still enjoy watching videos from Vloggers who shop on the high street. It might seem odd but I like to keep up with trends and enjoy the challenge of finding greener alternatives. With this in mind I decided to take a vlogger’s March Favourites and show you some Green Beauty swaps.

Morphe 12NB Palette - this consists of 12 eyeshadows in warm shades of bronze, chocolate and rust. Lily Lolo isn’t a brand I mention often because some of their range contains carmine but the Laid Bare Eye Palette** does spring to mind for this swap. Jane Iredale have a number of palette options, I particularly liked the look of the Triple Eye Shadow compact which come in several colour ways. PHB Ethical Beauty have recently launched palettes and they are a Vegan brand. Finding palettes is a little tricky but you can certainly match the colours individually. 

Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer - in the world of Green Beauty there are lots of cream and powder bronzers but I’m not aware of many liquid ones. There was one that did spring to mind, Dr Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint.

By Terry Terrybly Velvet Rouge in Lady Bare - this is described as a liquid lipstick and it’s a nude shade. I'm not sure if we can match the By Terry formulation but there are many great natural and organic lipstick and lipgloss brands. Inika Naked Kiss looks like a great nude shade lipstick. Other brands worth checking out are ILIA, Red Apple Lipsticks, Nvey Eco, Lavera, Living Nature, PHB Beauty, NATorigin and Odylique.

MAC Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare - As with lipsticks the above brands also have pencils, others you can add to my list are Green People, Zao, Avril, Benecos.

Tom Ford Nail Polish in Mink Brulee - there are plenty of 3, 5 or 7 free nail polish brands on the market. A personal favourite is Little Ondine** but you can also look at Kure Bazaar, Zoya and Intensae.

Clinique Superbalanced Make Up Foundation - Mineral Powder foundations are my personal favourites but greener liquid ones are out there. I suggest considering Living Nature, Inika, Lavera, ILIA, Vapour, Dr Hauschka and Alva.

Clarins Energy Boost - A new launch from this brand but part of a range which offer to boost your skincare by targeting concerns. You simply add to other products in your routine and it appears (from photos) to be oil. In the Green Beauty market there are hundreds of amazing oils which can be used in a similar way. As the Clarins one has yet to launch I can’t check ingredients but click here for a selection of oils I have reviewed.

  1. Great post Sarah, it's always those first swaps that are the hardest to make! I hope you convert a few people to green beauty.

  2. Love these type of swaps posts! I want to swap some of my MAC lippies and I love looking at Silk Naturals!

    1. Glad you liked the post. Silk Naturals is great but someone mentioned they use carmine? When I ordered from them I must admit I didn't spot this, haven't been back to investigate, forgot about it until now :)

  3. I think this is a great idea. Green beauty doesn't exist in a bubble imho and it's good for both sides to see the options. Green(er) liquid lipsticks are very hard to find, BITE Beauty do one.

    1. Thanks for your comment Lynda and I'm pleased you enjoyed this post :)
