Undone Beauty review: affordable vegan makeup

If you’re a makeup minimalist on a budget, then keep reading for my Undone Beauty review. I feel like nowadays clean beauty is all the rage but very few brands offer an affordable price point, which makes me really excited about today’s post!

UNDONE BEAUTY REVIEW:

I was first introduced to Undone Beauty in 2019 (I did a sponsored post featuring a limited edition face roller) but this is my first time trying the makeup line. Here’s what I like about Undone Beauty – the products are super affordable, easy to apply and perfect for the makeup minimalist. The products are also vegan and cruelty-free.

If you love Glossier makeup, or find their price points to be too expensive, then Undone Beauty is a great, affordable alternative!

Disclosure: Some products featured below were gifted by the brand, and marked with an asterisk. All other products mentioned were purchased by me. As always, all thoughts/opinions are my own. I only like talking about products I actually like and enjoy using! 

Conceal to Reveal 3-in-1 Coverage Palette* ($14):

Most concealers have only one type of coverage (sheer, medium or full coverage). I never really need more than a sheer finish; however, when I have a blemish or unruly redness, it’s nice to know I can opt for more coverage with just one compact. The formula feels really weightless on my skin, like I’m not wearing any makeup at all! I found it easy to apply with both my finger and concealer brush. This is a decent dupe to the Glossier Stretch Concealer; however, the Undone concealer I would say has more of a natural/satin finish whereas Glossier has a dewy finish.

Water Bronzer* ($10):

This is my favorite product of the bunch—it’s completely different from any other bronzer in my makeup collection. It’s a water-based bronzing stick (and infused with coconut water) that instantly adds color. I applied the stick directly to the areas the sun would naturally hit and then blended with a damp Real Techniques sponge. I’m wearing the shade Baked (a cool shade for those with blue, pink or red undertones). I highly recommend if you’re looking for an easy cream bronzer!

Face and Body Palm Brush ($18):

This contoured brush stood out to me as something I could use for contouring and highlighting. It’s much bigger in person so it really only works best for applying on your face using the Water Bronzer; however, if you like bronzing your shoulders and collarbones, this will work really well!

Water Highlighter ($10):

I’m such a sucker for highlighters, always have been. Similar to the Water Bronzer formula, this product has a cushiony texture for a perfectly dewy, natural looking highlight. I have the shade, Rose Lit and it’s a VERY subtle highlight. It glides on the skin without issue and it’s not glittery at all. This feels incredibly light and silky. This is definitely an affordable dupe to the Glossier Haloscope in Quartz.

Lip to Cheek Palette 3-in-1 Cream Tint* ($14):

I really like wearing monochromatic cheek and lip looks. Similar to the concealer compact, the Lip to Cheek Palette also offers three finishes in one. I’m wearing the shade Rosewood in this post. Based on looks alone, I probably wouldn’t have opted for this shade; however, it didn’t look as intense as I was expecting on my fair skin tone. I applied a sheer amount to my cheeks and then blended with my fingers.

I really like the formula of this compact so I ended up purchasing another shade Rosy, which is a cool pink. I tend to use the medium finish (center row) so it gives my cheeks a beautiful looking flush, like I just went out for a run or something. 10/10 would recommend!

Unscripted Instant Liner ($12):

This is my first time trying a felt tip liner with a stamp, making it easy for any cat eye look. Up until this point, I’ve always had eyeliners that required me to do all the work. What’s cool about the functionality of this product is that you can opt for a thin, thick or stamped application. This is perfect for makeup beginners.

Light On Lip ($10):

I love a good tinted lip balm. This one is a balm-lipstick hybrid that has a lustrous finish. I’m wearing the shade Coral Pop in the photo. It was very moisturizing on my lips and it only took a couple coats to pack on the color.

If I had to narrow down all the products I’ve tried to just a few favorites, then it would be the Lip to Cheek palette, Unscripted Instant Liner, the Water Bronzer and Highlighter.
