7 Must-Have Clean Makeup Products

Updated: Nov 14, 2020

There has been a massive influx of "clean" products in the beauty industry. This can make it extremely difficult to tell whether a product is all hype or worth your coin.


Depending on the brand, some of these products can be upward of $55 each. Personally, I find it difficult to justify that kind of price tag for one product.

Some factors to take into consideration when deciding to repurchase/invest in a pricey beauty product:

  • Does a little go a long way? If so, how many weeks/months will you be able to use that product.

  • Is the product versatile? Can it be used for more than one type of application?

  • Is the price based on ingredients, or is it all about the packaging/brand name?

  • What are the claims? Why is this product unique/necessary?

These criteria differ depending on your needs, budget, etc. but let me save you some of the time, money, and frustration with this list of 7 clean make-up products that really work and are worth your dollars!


7 Must-Have (Clean) Make-Up Products

If you haven't heard of Tower28 Beauty, you will soon. Launching a little over a year ago, Tower28 is taking the beauty industry (and my vanity) by storm.

Their formulas are made with sensitive skin in mind and feature a clean, cruelty-free, and vegan ingredients list. Tower28 is also female founded!

BeachPlease Luminous Tinted Balm

BeachPlease is a versatile tinted balm that comes in three shades. It can be worn on the cheeks, lips, and lids. BeachPlease is blendable, buildable, and extremely easy to apply. For the versatility, comfort, and non-irritating formula, the $20 price tag is a no-brainer in my opinion. It's like getting three products in one!

ShineOn Lip Jelly

Clean beauty lip glosses in three different shades: clear, orange, and red

As the proud owner of multiple shades of the ShineOn Lip Jelly, I can confirm this is a top-notch product. This gloss is hydrating, nourishing, and not sticky at all! Every shade is flattering and can be worn alone or on top of lipstick. You could even wear this Lip Jelly on your lids for a glossy-lid look! For the $14 price tag, these are well worth it!
