Velvet 59 is a California-based makeup retailer that is one of the first entirely vegan cosmetic brands offering exclusively naturally made products that aren't tested on animals and don't use any animal products in the formulas. The brand aims to offer a range of entirely vegan beauty products from contour powders to lipsticks and eyeshadows that are made with high quality and wholesome ingredients.

The shop is put together by 22-year-old Paris Manning that aims to offer products that are pigmented, long-lasting and made with vegan-certified ingredients. The collection includes products named after local places throughout California that are produced without parabens, additives or cruelty. The line instead utilizes sacha inchi oil as one of the main ingredients to provide creamy texture and binding in many of the products.
