Black Radiance

Black Radiance is one of the most affordable brands out there. You can find their products at any drugstore or target for as low as $3.99. Just because it's labeled as a “drugstore brand” doesn't mean the quality is bad. Youtube Beauty Guru Jackie Aina has vouched for this brand over and over again. When Aunt Jackie vouches for a brand you know it's good. Oh and I almost forgot to mention, this is a black owned brand that caters to people of color.

Glamour Dolls

You've probably heard about them recently since they've partnered with Lisa Frank they only have brushes out right now but they will have more Lisa Frank items out soon. When I tell you this stuff is's cheap. The most expensive thing I've seen on their website is $5.99 and again I have to say just because it's less than $20.00 doesn't mean the quality equals the price. The most important thing is that everything is 100% vegan.

Lime Crime

Lime Crime is another brand that's a little more on the pricey side but the quality is worth it. You want to look like a mermaid? Lime Crime has a whole entire line of products inspired by mermaids. And the best part? The company is completely cruelty-free and vegan friendly.

Milani Cosmetics

Last but not least, I have to put Milani Cosmetics on the list. Their lip creams are out of this world, I use to have a waterproof liquid eyeliner that lived up to its name and it was only $8.00. Milani lives up to the hype and the fact that it's cruelty-free is even better.

I hope this helps some of you beauty lovers out there that decide to turn away from NARS. There are affordable brands out there other than NARS that are cruelty-free. You just gotta look for them.
