These are the best makeup products from Jessica Alba’s brand, Honest Beauty.
About Honest Beauty
More celebrities today are creating their own skincare lines or makeup products. Jessica Alba is one of them, who launched Honest Beauty back in 2012 when not a lot of people were really talking about safe ingredients. She launched it because she was the face of three beauty brands at the time and has been working with makeup artists for many years now.
Clean beauty has always been important and a focus of hers before it even became a mainstream term. She has very sensitive skin, so she knew she wanted to create products that were effective and safe for sensitive skin but still worked.
Alba believes Honest is a brand for everyone and was founded with the main goal being democratizing clean beauty. She is aware of the importance of being conscious of the ingredients she put on her skin since she had both eczema and cystic acne and wanted to create a line offering clean hair, makeup and skincare products.
Honest Beauty has cruelty-free products with plant-derived and natural ingredients. All of the brand’s products are tested by dermatologists, ophthalmologists and toxicologists. Every product is also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, PEGs, synthetic dyes, artificial fragrances, silicones, mineral oil, talc, petrochemicals and allergens.
The brand is available online and in stores at Target, Amazon, Ulta and of course, the brand’s own site. Another bonus is that every product is under $30. Here are 8 of the brand’s best makeup products.
1. Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer ($17)
This great mascara by Honest Beauty is one of their bestseller makeup products. It really opens your eyes and makes you look more awake. The lengths your lashes will go with this 2-in-1 dual-ended mascara is nothing short of extreme. It’s safe for sensitive eyes as well and won’t flake off throughout the day.
Start with the mascara lash primer to enhance your mascara’s lay-down performance and staying power. Flip to the dark side for a coat of rich, smooth lash-lifting black mascara and open your eyes for extreme definition, volume and length.
2. Liquid Lipstick ($15)
This lipstick is an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner from 2019. The vegan, matte liquid lipstick formulated with the brand’s CleanPower Technology™, has a flexible feel to it. The CleanPower Technology™ powers the all-day wear of the color-drenched, shine-to-matte liquid lipstick.
While being paraben-free, the vegan formula nourishes (due to avocado oil), feels flexible and instantly hydrates (because of the hyaluronic acid) to keep that beautiful color going strong and looking good.
The lipstick comes in 8 high-pigment payoff shades to match every skin tone. With more staying power than a lip gloss and more hydration than a traditional lipstick, the brand’s long-lasting liquid lipstick has the beauty power you need to last all day long without any dryness. Their luxurious matte finish and creamy liquid formula seamlessly combine long wear with lasting nourishment, in a shade range designed to match any look.
3. Crème Cheek Blush ($13)
The Crème Cheek Blush is a Honest Beauty makeup product that is lightweight, to create an effortless, dewy flush that melts seamlessly onto the skin for a natural finish that looks great on any skin tone. The sheer tint will leave you with a gorgeous, healthy glow. It comes in 4 shades: Plum Berry, Coral Peach, Peony Pink and Rose Pink.
With its punchy pigment and cushiony texture, this cream blush blends like a dream and builds from sheer-to-saturated for your perfect cheeks pop. You can also use it to give your lips an extra pop of color.
4. Everything Primer – Glow ($22)

It is an illuminating primer with a glow-getting formula that hydrates, preps your skin for makeup and leaves you with a dewy, radiant complexion. It is made to smooth and firm the skin. Jessica Alba claims, “Anybody can use this–men or women–even if you’re not wearing makeup.”
It is infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid, peony root extract, a botanical peptide and light-reflecting pigment. The hyaluronic acid hydrates your skin and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines. The non-toxic traces of mica adds sheer radiance to your skin and make it luminous, fresh and youthful. This primer blends into your skin easily without taking away your natural skin tone. It is suitable for all skin types and tones.
This silky, priming formula helps create a smooth, even canvas for makeup application. Even if you don’t normally wear foundation on a day-to-day basis, you can wear it alone for a subtle, golden-hued radiance.

These copper-to-berry shades of this eyeshadow palette are here for you (and every eye color) with a velvet texture and rich pigment that’s beautiful on all skin tones. You can achieve so many different looks for every occasion.
The matte hues can double up as bold eyeliners when worn wet, and the shimmer shades offer a high-shine finish. They set in quickly and bring out the maximum depth of each pigment as well.
