What's In Sainsbury's New Boutique Make-Up Range? The Vegan Collection Is Pretty Impressive


Most of us make a point of educating ourselves about the contents of our make-up bags. Beauty devotees are asking for cruelty-free products that don't harm the environment, animals, or their skin. And I'm pleased to report that Sainsbury's has delivered. The supermarket has recently upgraded its beauty offering, releasing more than 100 brand new vegan products. So what's in Sainsbury's new Boutique make-up range and how much is it going to cost you?

Well, there's everything from foundations and primers to lipsticks, highlighters, and eyeshadow. Each of the 119 items in the range is super affordable with prices ranging from just £2 to £6. Sainsbury's has also ensured that every product comes with a skincare benefit so whether you're looking for nourishment, hydration, or just plain brightening, you're in luck.

Every single thing is 100 percent cruelty-free and has been approved by Leaping Bunny; an organisation that gives gold standard certification to animal-friendly brands. "We're devoted to developing premium products and providing our customers with a wide range of choice when it comes to our beauty offering," Boutique's beauty buying manager, Rebecca Wicks, said in a statement released to Bustle UK. "We want to make cruelty-free make-up accessible for all our shoppers by providing high quality, trend-led products at affordable prices."

It would be impossible to list all 119 products but here's some of the very best to pick up either online or in store.

1Moisturising Primer

Boutique Flawless Hydrating Illuminating Primer


Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B3 can be found in this pore-reducing primer. Perfect for those who want to prep their skin before foundation or just want to have a light make-up day, you won't worry about using it all up quickly thanks to the price. Sainsbury's has also released a bunch of other primers including a green formulation aimed at reducing redness and a purple one for brightening.

2Hydrating Lip Gloss

Boutique Lip Plumping Hydrating Gloss


With a formula that contains Vitamin E and shea butter, your lips are sure to love the five plumping lip glosses on offer. Shades range from subtle nude and mocha to brighter pinks and reds.

3On The Go Highlighters

Boutique Highlighting Palette


This handy palette simultaneously nourishes the skin (you can thank the addition of aloe vera and jojoba for that) while giving you the glow you've always dreamed of. The three shades are subtle enough to be worn in even the most conservative of offices.

4A Natural Glow

Boutique Illuminating Drops


Highlighting drops are all the rage but often come with an eye-watering price. These aren't too OTT, instead containing teeny tiny pearls that provide a natural radiance. A champagne and pink hue have currently been released.

5A Touch Of Sparkle

Boutique Holographic Lip & Eye Topper


When the working day is done, you're going to want to find something that'll make your make-up pop. This quick and easy product can be used on both your eyes and lips, giving a metallic shimmer in 30 seconds. Three colours are available: pink, bronze, and purple.

6Lip-Friendly Lipstick

Boutique Moisturising Lipstick


Most lipsticks come with the unfortunate side effect of drying your lips out. But Sainsbury's new version comes complete with shea butter, jojoba oil, and Vitamin E instead. There are eight colours to choose from so you'll never have to suffer from chapped lips ever again.

7Two-In-One Contour

Boutique Highlight & Contour Stick


Streamlining your make-up bag saves lugging around inessential items. This multipurpose stick allows you to highlight and contour in two simple swipes and comes in light/medium and medium/dark shades.

8Waterproof Mascara

Boutique Waterproof False Lashes Mascara


The inclusion of Vitamin E in this waterproof mascara protects your lashes, giving a false-looking yet non-damaging effect. If waterproof isn't your thing, the range also includes mascaras prioritising lengthening and volumising.

9Creamy Blusher

Boutique Velvet Blusher


Infused with vitamins, this cream-to-powder blusher gives a nice healthy glow and promises to last all day long. As with many of the products on offer, it comes in three shades.

10Colour-Correcting Concealer

Boutique Long Lasting Colour Correction Concealer


If you've been searching for a heavy duty concealer that neutralises redness and stays on for hours, look no further. While most people will probably opt for the green colour-correcting option, the Boutique range also includes a purple one and normal cover-up concealers.

11Setting Powder

Boutique Invisible Setting Powder


Once your make-up is complete, you're going to want to ensure it doesn't come off all day. Enter the invisible setting powder. It keeps everything in place, reduces shine and excess oil, and works to brighten your complexion too.

12A Fully Wearable Eyeshadow Palette

Boutique Eyeshadow Palette


Sainsbury's hasn't forgotten the eye department. Its range of eyeshadow palettes encompasses both nude and burgundy shades. You can also pick up individual metallic eyeshadows and pencil variations.

13Breathable Foundation

Boutique Serum Foundation


You didn't think Sainsbury's would forget the foundation, did you? Full of Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, the moisturising serum gives lightweight to medium coverage and comes in six shades.

If you really want to push the boat out, why not buy the entire collection? It'll probably cost you a lot less than your current must-have products.
