Hey everyone,

I wear makeup very rarely and thus am still using up old stores of my old mascara, blush and lipsticks but I want to restock sooner rather than later ... does anyone have any suggestions for  good quality, vegan cosmetics that don't cost the world and are readily available in Australia? I've obviously googled this subject and found quite a bit of info regarding brands but I'de like to hear from people that have already used the products and have some favourites so I know they're good happy

http://www.elfcosmetics.com.au/ (only thing that isn't vegan is the essentials brushes)
There is also face of australia, nude by nature, natio all in priceline! (you will have to check the ingredients on some of the items as not all are vegan) if you email any of them they will send you a vegan list!
Lush also have vegan eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick etc! and i'm pretty sure the cheapo brand bys has some vegan mascaras! for like $3-5 haha

Since you've done some research already, I'll skip straight to personal experience;
ELF definitely fits the "cheap" category while still being pretty good. You might like their blushes; their powders work well. The only issue would be finding stockists with a good range, although most of their Australian stores are in Victoria so you're in luck there.
I tried Face of Australia and wasn't really impressed. It was affordable, but not what I would call cheap. Their mineral powder foundation and eyeshadow are both poorly pigmented, offering weak coverage; so judging from that I'd say their blushes would be more of the same. Their liquid eyeliner is excellent, though, if you wear it.
You mentioned lipstick, so I recommend looking at Lush's lip tints. They're super pigmented, affordable, and very pretty; it's hard to find vegan lip products so these are excellent. Not all of their lip balms/tints are vegan, though. Their mascara is vegan too, and considering how expensive vegan mascara can be, it's quite affordable. Not waterproof but works well and is good for sensitive eyes. The stubby wand is a little unwieldy, though.

Hey
I've changed my makeup brand to Nude by Nature. It seems reasonable.

My Mum used to sell Nutri-metics. She tried to tell me they're animal product free; but I read ingredients. I saw many animal ingredients. Although probably still cruelty-free.
