Less known Canadian makeup brands

I recently got a comment on the Canadian makeup brands post from Mellisa at Buy Canadian First regarding a few brands that she featured. I have honestly haven’t heard from these brands much (if not at all), so I went reading more.

Natural Beauty is an online store which has mineral makeup as one of the lines. They carry basic mineral makeup items – Mineral shadows (CAD16.99), blushes (CAD24.99), foundation CAD31.99, etc.

Their price point is in department-store range. At this stage of my journey with makeup, I don’t think I could shop there yet. But if you are a mineral makeup lover and want to support a Canadian brand, feel free to browse the website for some shopping fun.

I found a little review (and giveaway – for Canadian only) of Natural Beauty products at Natural Mommie. Maybe we can win some products to try out. But hurry, it closes tonight.

Outside/ In Cosmetics is specialized in vegan makeup. Visit their homepage to see a long list of ingredients that you would not find in their products. It’s really impressive.

They have some bright fun eyeshadows (CAD13.95), mineral correctors (CAD15.95), blushes (CAD21.95), etc. I like the ery bright and fun labels too, quite different from other mineral brands I have shopped at.

There is a Back to School promotion going on this month with 20% off all products, so check them out!

SunCoat is known for its water-based nail polishes (their national award winning product), CAD9.99 each.

Suncoat has retailers across Canada (they are available in a few health food stores where I live – I haven’t seen them though) and also in the US. Online shopping is available as well.

Their mineral shadows come in a very cute packaging, retais at CAD15.99. Natural lip glosses are CAD11.99, liquid foundation CAD20.99

I’m stoked to find out about these green Canadian makeup brands and really hope they reach out more to the community to promote themselves. This post might be edited anytime when I find more brands 🙂
