Color Vegan List for Sephora Kenwood #258!

Hey guys, this list only applies to my store in the sense that other stores may have more cruelty free brands.  My store carries several other non-CF brands, so I didn't bother to research their vegan-friendly products because they're not really vegan-friendly!  The other non-CF color brands at my store are Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, NARS, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Laura Mercier, Givenchy (inconclusive on their CF status), Guerlain, Lancome, Clinique, Benefit, Buxom, Bare Escentuals and.. anyone else I forgot.  I did not research products that are in Beauty To Go because most of those are brands that are in the store and are mini-sizes of their full size products.  I am still researching skin care and currently have an incomplete list.  I also need to research our nail polish lines and our hair care.  I have started both, so if you need any suggestions now, please feel free to comment below.

DISCLAIMER:  This list was researched by me, Elizabeth A Durham, and does NOT represent the opinion or act as any sort of statement on behalf of Sephora, LLC, LVHM, or any of it's subsidiaries.  I researched this list based off of emails from companies, public vegan lists, or other trusted resources.  This list is accurate to the best of knowledge as of the date of it's post.  Any changes made to formulas of finished products is simply out of my control and as things change, I will try to keep up with editing this list.  This list was compiled for my personal use, and to share with my clients.  If you see any errors or have any questions about this list, please comment below.

COLOR  LINES: only includes brands considered cruelty free – meaning company does not test, parent company does not test, nor do they do third party testing.

I went into my bedroom and swatched out all of these colors.. just to emerge to see that the sky had grown black and it was POURING. What happened!? Well, I went ahead and photographed the swatches anyways, even if the lighting wasn't great and the colors are slightly.. off. =[  All swatches are over, from top to bottom, ELF Primer, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean.

Nearly a year ago, the lovely Karyl of the Biting Gnome sent me a love package.  In that package was a precious monster who is one of the cutest little things I've laid my eyes on... and tonight I decided to do a tutorial based on him because I asked j0hn to pick an object for inspiration.  =]

HAUL: Shiro Cosmetics!

 Edit: I am editing this to add that EVERYTHING from Shiro Cosmetics is vegan!  I forgot to mention that before & this is vital because those intertubes have some pretty amazing coloring without including carmine!

I placed in order with Shiro Cosmetics a little while back for samples. I wanted to try a few things out and get a feel for the brand before I purchased any full sizes. Mostly because j0hn & I couldn't narrow down our choices of intertubes from "all of them". I waited for j0hn to leave for Mexico, then ordered a few samples that I felt he was the most interested in, then choose the rest for me.   His three choices (whether he knew it or not) were Me Gusta, Sad Keanu and Insanity Wolf.

To see what I got up close and personal...

NOTD: Red, White & Blue Sparkle-rs!

So I thought I was clever with the name.  I had to figure out a way to represent the red, white & blue on my nails in ten minutes or less.  This is what I ended up with.  Please note that OPI is owned by Coty and is not cruelty free.  I did this look with nail polish testers at work.

Sephora by OPI Not Your Average Turquoise
Sephora by OPI Be-Clause I Said So
Sephora by OPI Whild About Shimmer

No base coat.
No top coat.
Living dangerously, lighting sparklers out the window of a moving car. 

FTC:  I used all three of these polishes at work and do not own them.
