Let’s be real: it’s hard to give up the love we have for makeup brands that feature so many options…but it’s also hard to find makeup brands that support ethical practices. That’s why we’re super excited about Sephora’s newest Black-owned, clean, vegan, and cruelty-free brand, LYS Beauty.
With so many options for every skin tone, this inclusive line features plenty of products that work for everyone. (I’m serious: their slogan is “Clean, Affordable, Inclusive,” and their foundation comes in 35 shades.) They purposefully have chosen empowering shade names — for example, Courage, Strength, Worthy — and they’re also dedicated to sustainability, with entirely recyclable packaging.

This creamy blush features a satin-matte finish that is buildable for a richer pigment. The clean formula includes avocado oil for hydration, vitamin E to soothe redness, and kaolin clay to blur pores and limit shine. This affordable blush comes in six shades, so anyone can have a natural-looking flush.
This pressed setting powder is perfect for all skin types. The clean formula includes green tea, sodium hyaluronate, and niacinamide, similar to the No Limits Bronzer, but it stands on its own thanks to its ability to lock makeup in place all day. It also minimizes pores and blurs imperfections without looking cake-y.
The No Limits Matte Bronzer comes in five shades to complement every skin tone. The buildable formula includes green tea extract for healthy antioxidants, while niacinamide absorbs excess oil and sodium hyaluronate reduces the appearance of fine lines. It also works double-duty by hiding dark circles and wrinkles.
This light-to-medium foundation blends skincare and makeup into one product. Featuring ashwagandha for anti-aging properties, turmeric for brightening and evening skin, and hyaluronic acid to add instant hydration, this foundation is infused with a serum that minimizes skin imperfections without hiding your skin’s natural glow.
The ingredients in this serum primer are what make it so effective in balancing skin texture and hiding enlarged pores — a perfect base for makeup. Ingredients include niacinamide, AHA fruit blend for smoothing, ginger root for reducing inflammation, and grapefruit extract to even out dark spots and hyperpigmentation with its high concentration of vitamin C.
Treat your lips to a nourishing paradise with this lip treatment oil. With ingredients like sunflower, carrot, sweet almond, and macadamia nut oils to hydrate, cold-pressed chia seed oil to add volume, and vitamin E to combat dryness, this formula will keep your pout from being parched.
