ZuZu Luxe from Gabriel Cosmetics | Oil-Free Liquid Foundation Swatches (Full-Line)

ZuZu Luxe Oil Free Liquid Foundation ZuZu Luxe from Gabriel Cosmetics | Oil Free Liquid Foundation Swatches (Full Line)

Cruelty-free foundations. It’s the topic I get most questions about and traffic from. As a foundation fanatic, I’m always excited to share my recommendations. But of course one of the most crucial factors in selecting a foundation is color match. And many Leaping Bunny certified brands simply aren’t widely available in stores, which can make determining your correct shade difficult.

To help, I’m posting swatches of the full color ranges of five cruelty-free foundations: ZuZu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid, FACE Atelier Ultra, 100% Pure Healthy Skin SPF 20, Mineral Fusion, and Gabriel Cosmetics Moisturizing Liquid. All the foundations are Leaping Bunny certified and sold at White Rabbit Beauty. This is something I’ve wanted to do forever. I am so grateful to Jean at White Rabbit Beauty, who made this possible!

The first range I have for you is the ZuZu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid Foundation ($29.75). Zuzu Luxe is a line from Gabriel Cosmetics. It’s Leaping Bunny-certified, gluten-free, and vegan. CONTINUE READING…
