Who said there aren’t many cruelty-free and vegan makeup brands?! I created this guide containing 101 brands to show you that it’s possible to find quality cruelty-free makeup for every budget, from high-end to drugstore!

I included my personal experience with these brands, but I also remained objective about my recommendations. If some products really suck, I made sure to tell you about it. If you’re a makeup beginner, I hope this guide will be helpful to you!

! 2017 UPDATE ! I added more brands to the list! I also now mention ALL cruelty-free brands regardless of parent companies. If a brand is owned by a company that isn’t cruelty-free, you’ll find a * beside the brand and the parent company will be clearly marked.

I divided the guide into 4 sections: Mid-Range and High-End Brands, Drugstore Brands, Natural and Organic Makeup Brands, and Independent or Indie Makeup Brands that are quite popular, but mostly not available in stores.

Clicking the brands below will take you to their little section on this page.

mid-high-end-brands

1. Kat Von D Beauty

This is a very versatile makeup line by tattoo artist Kat Von D. Their products are high-quality yet still fairly-priced, and they offer everything from neutrals and nudes to bold and colourful items. Plus, they make the best matte eyeshadow palette ever for those who love matte neutrals. Kat Von D Beauty is my cruelty-free brand of the year for 2017!

Super-pigmented and buttery eyeshadows, available both in bold and virbant colors or neutral shades, as it’s the case with the Naked palettes.

Note that Urban Decay is cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny-certified, but their parent company L’Oreal still tests on animals.

5. Illamasqua

illamasqua-makeup

Illamasqua is about self-expression through the art of makeup. They offer rich pigments and bold colors, but also many products suitable for natural looks. Most of their collection is solid in terms of quality.

A popular favorite is their Hollow Cream Pigment for contouring, especially for lighter skintones. They have a huge selection of nail polish and their formula is fantastic. Their powder blushes are also worth checking out.

Especially popular for their pressed powder products, namely their Chocolate Bar Eye Palette (neutral colors, smells like chocolate), Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder (good for oily skin), as well as several convenient eye and face palettes. Better Than Sex is one of the best cruelty-free mascaras I’ve come across.

Their blushes are fantastic and very pigmented. The shade Orgasm is a cult favorite and works with every skin tone. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is great if you need high-coverage.

Their newest lip products have also been getting a lot of hype lately. Some of their eyeshadows are underwhelming.

8. Milk Makeup

Milk Makeup is a new makeup brand available at Sephora. They’re all about “quick” makeup, mostly on the natural side. They have a lot of cream and stick products, like the Lip + Cheek stick.

9. Charlotte Tilbury

ct

This is a high-end brand from the UK, founded by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. Their products are high-quality, and the price point definitely reflects that. In the USA, their makeup can be found at Nordstrom, though Charlotte Tilbury is very popular in the UK.

Marc Jacobs Beauty is cruelty-free, but please keep in mind that their perfumes are not. They belong to a different brand, Marc Jacobs Fragrances (not cruelty-free).

Vegan

“While the majority of the products are free of animal byproducts, Marc Jacobs Beauty is not considered a vegan line: there are a small number of product ingredients in the line that contain ingredients of animal origin, such as beeswax & carmine.”

The vegan list is pending.

11. Becca (Owned by Estee Lauder)

becca

Becca is very well-known for their gorgeous highlighters. They offer high-quality makeup and a great selection of products. They specialize in base products; their highlighters, bronzers, foundations, primers, and blushes are beautiful!

They recently came up with color correctors as well, which have pretty good reviews. Check out their red or peach correctors for undereye circles. Their green corrector is great to cover up redness, and their lavender corrector is great for dull and sallow skintones.

lip-tar

Vegan

Everything from OCC including the brushes is 100% vegan.

16. Bite

bite

Offering high-quality lip products that are also “healthy enough to eat”. Their lipsticks contain less synthetics and potentially harmful ingredients than other mainstream brands. Huge choice of lip products and shades, highly-pigmented. Bite Beauty is Leaping Bunny-certified!


Vegan

Unfortunately Bite doesn’t have any lipsticks that are 100% vegan, as all their products either contain Beeswax, Carmine, or Lanolin. The following is their only vegan product right now, and I’ll make sure to update this list if there’s any change.

  • Lush Lip Wipes

17. theBalm

thebalm

Quality makeup with a retro feel and packaging, and a good alternative to Benefit (which isn’t cruelty-free). Top picks include their awesomely glowy highlighter Mary-Lou Manizer, their pigmented and long-wearing Instain blushes, their Bahama Mama bronzer, and their underrated Nude Tude palette.


Vegan

Their brushes are vegan and synthetic, but I wasn’t impressed with the ones I’ve tried and wouldn’t recommend them. Here’s a list of The Balm’s current vegan items:

  • Mary-Lou Manizer (Highlighter, Shadow & Primer)
  • Sexy Mama (Anti Shine Translucent Powder)
  • Bahama Mama (Bronzer)
  • Read My Lips (Lip Glosses)

18. PUR Cosmetics

PUR Cosmetics is found in some drugstores as well as Ulta. They offer pressed powder products and are considered “the complexion authority”, but they’ve expanded their line way beyond that. They use non-toxic ingredients, but also effective ones.

If you’re looking for a cruelty-free cushion foundation, lo and behold: the Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 50. The downside is that the shade range is limited.

19. IT Cosmetics (owned by L’oreal)

it-cosmetics

IT Cosmetics was developed by Jamie Kern Lima (above) with the intention of providing more than just cover-up makeup. She wanted a product that also treats skin conditions such as rosacea, and acts as a problem to common skin problems. IT Cosmetics mostly focus on a flawless base (from foundation to concealer to contour products) and also offer skincare. You can buy IT Cosmetics from Ulta here.

Vegan

IT Cosmetics isn’t a vegan brand, but they do offer a few vegan options. Note that their brushes are 100% synthetic and vegan. All their vegan products are:

  • Eye Lift in a Tube
  • My Sculpted Face
  • Vitality Blush Stain
  • Heavenly Luxe Brushes

20. FACE Atelier

face-atelier

Leaping Bunny-certified pro-quality independent brand. Their best-selling Ultra Foundation provides medium to full coverage and doesn’t require a primer. It’s also available in “adjuster” shades such as pure white, deep brown, and red. Some of their brushes are made from natural animal hair.

Vegan

Face Atelier is transitioning to a line that’s 100% vegan. In the meantime, please be aware of the following animal ingredients in products.

1. Their lipsticks contain lanolin.

2. Beeswax is still found in their Lip Glaze, Lip Putty, Lip RX, and Sculpt HD Mascara.

  • Lip glaze – ice

21. Ciate

Originally a nail polish brand, Ciate has moved on to makeup! A few stand-out products include their Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick (13 shades), The Pretty Eyeshadow Palette, and their Bamboo Bronzer Longwear Bronzing Powder.

22. Besame

Besame is bringing back vintage makeup with their retro packaging and products inspired by classic products. They even make their products in the USA. A must-have is their Brightening Setting Face Powder, and their Classic Color Lipstick is also getting rave reviews.

23. Perfekt

Perfekt aims to simplify the beauty routines of our super busy lives! They’re a relatively new brand and can be found at Sephora. They offer many versatile and multi-use products, and everything is free from parabens, synthetic fragrance, and talc. They’re made in the USA.

24. Nudestix

nudestix

Nudestix is all about no-makeup makeup and easy, natural looks. Models and sisters Ally and Taylor (above) are the faces of the brand. They believe that each face is beautiful and unique, and doesn’t need to be covered up with a ton of makeup! Nudestix is available at Sephora.

25. Blinc

blinc

Blinc focuses solely on luxury eye products, specifically mascaras, brow products, and eyeliners. You can buy Blinc from Sephora, where they have fairly good reviews.

26. Cargo

Cargo is a Canadian makeup brand that’s also available in the US at Kohl’s. Their focus is “simple, professional results that would be easy enough for all women to achieve”.

27. DuWop

DuWop is an independent makeup company that stands out by offering some cool, nifty items such as their super-popular Lip Venom lip plumper, their Reverse Lip Liner (a product for lining the ouside of your lips, preventing your lipstick from bleeding and giving your lips a sharp line), and their awesome-looking and hydrating Icedteas Lip Treatments.

28. BareMinerals (Owned by Shiseido)

BareMinerals became popular for their mineral foundation, but have now branched out and offer a lot more mineral-based products. BareMinerals is owned by Bare Escentuals, which is owned by Shiseido. While Shiseido isn’t cruelty-free, Bare Escentuals still is.

29. Buxom (Owned by Shiseido)

Buxom is also a part of Bare Escentuals, but they specialize in non-mineral stuff, especially lip products. Check out their cool Full-On Lip Polish lip plumpers if you’re into plumping products that tingle! It’s their best-seller. Again, Bare Escentuals is owned by Shiseido, which isn’t cruelty-free.

30. The Body Shop (Owned By L’Oreal)

The Body Shop is a great cruelty-free alternative. Their makeup is comparable to some mid-range brands. They have a great bronzer available in several shades (Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder, 20$). I also love their Lip Care ($14) moisturizer which actually comes in a bullet and looks like lipstick. Their complete range of brushes is vegan! Keep in mind that The Body Shop is owned by L’Oreal, which itself isn’t cruelty-free.

31. Lush

Lush mainly makes skin and body products, but they do offer a small selection of makeup as well.

More Mid and High-End Brands

More cruelty-free makeup brands include (32) Eyeko, (33) Ardency Inn, (34) Edward Bess, (35) Korres, (36) Catrice, and (37) Japonesque.


Luxury Brands

For luxury cruelty-free makeup brands, check out (38) Chantecaille, (39) Ellis Faas, (40) By Terry, and (41) Rouge Bunny Rouge and (42) Perricone MD! All of these are cruelty-free and don’t retail in mainland China and offer top quality makeup and beautiful, luxurious packaging.
drugstore-brands

42. e.l.f.

eyes-lips-face

E.l.f. offers inexpensive products (typically around 1$ to 3$ per individual item) in sleek packaging that mimics higher-end brands. They’re a hit or miss brand and the prices mostly reflect the quality, meaning their makeup most often doesn’t measure up to high-end brands, but they do have some great products and very decent dupes. Their affordable prices make them a great brand for those on a budget, or just starting out with makeup. Note that NOT all of their brushes are cruelty-free, as some are made of natural animal hair.

43. Hard Candy

This brand is a Walmart exclusive, and you can find it both in the United States and Canada. Their products are inexpensive and sometimes on the bold or shimmery side. Their Fast & Fabulous Setting Spray is a good drugstore setting spray and is very affordable.

44. Milani

An overall solid and good quality drugstore brand that’s also certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny. Check out their Baked Blushes (Luminoso in particular is a popular favorite), eyeshadows and eyeshadow primer, pencil and liquid eyeliners, as well as lip products; most of these are long-lasting and very pigmented. They have a great selection of both natural and bold colors, and some good makeup staples!

45. Physicians Formula

Physicians Formula specialize in “hypoallergenic” makeup that’s also mostly paraben-free. Some of their products do however contain ingredients such as talc or fragrance; always check the ingredients, which are easy to find on their website! Most of their mascaras are great if you have sensitive eyes, and they make a Shimmer Bricks (highlighters which you can use for face and eyes). Also noteworthy is their Eye Booster liquid eyeliner for ultra-black and precise lines.

46. Sonia Kashuk

kashuk

Sonia Kashuk is exclusively available at Target and offers wearable, more natural makeup. This brand is best known for their high-quality yet affordable makeup brushes.

Please note however that some of them are made from natural animal hair which I don’t view as cruelty-free, even though the company claims that the brushes are obtained in humane ways — it’s up to you whether or not you trust this claim.

A great synthetic brush I would recommend is their Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush.

Other than the brushes, their makeup is also good quality and worth checking out, especially their Dramatically Defining Long-Wear Gel Liner, Eye On Neutral matte palette, and nail polishes.

47. Wet’n’Wild

Wet’n’Wild is a very commonly available and inexpensive drugstore brand. Their products are hit or miss but they do have some gems: they have some great eyeshadows, especially their popular Walking on Eggshells palette which has dupes for MAC’s eyeshadows in Shroom, Cork, and Naked Lunch. Their popular MegaLast lipsticks are also worth checking out: great color selection (and some shades are MAC dupes) for only around 2$. Their Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner is also a great find, but stay away from their waterproof liquid liner or eye makeup remover.

48. NYX (Owned by L’Oreal)

NYX remains cruelty-free despite their acquisition by L’Oreal in 2014. This is another good quality drugstore makeup brand, offering highly pigmented products in both natural and bold shades. Their lip products are particularly worth checking out, especially the Soft Matte Lip Creams and lip glosses. Their blushes and eyeshadows are also a good bang for your buck. Their Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in Milk is a big favorite, cheap, and versatile: you can use it as an eyeshadow primer, highlighter, and lid concealer. It’s a must-have if you want to make less-pigmented shadows pop!

More Drugstore Brands

There are a few other cruelty-free drugstore brands worth mentioning, such as (49) Jordana (owned by Milani), (50) Flower (Drew Barrymore’s line, exclusively available at Walmart), (51) Jane, and (52) Prestige (both available at Ulta).

Target also carries (53) Pixi, (54) Pacifica, and (55) Mineral Fusion. Pacifica is not only cruelty-free, but also 100% vegan and a greener beauty brand. Pixi offers higher quality makeup, and Mineral Fusion is certified by the Leaping Bunny.

Another very affordable cruelty-free brand is (56) Essence, which is available in many drugstores across North America and Europe. There’s also (57) Barry M for UK shoppers.

For Canadian cruelty-free shoppers (and some American locations), there’s also the UK-based makeup brand (58) GOSH that’s available at Shopper’s Drug Mart: mostly good quality and a great alternative to the Canadian brand Quo, which isn’t cruelty-free. (59) Marcelle and (60) Annabelle are also commonly available in drugstores and cruelty-free.

More Natural Brands & Mineral Makeup

There are many mineral makeup brands out there; don’t hesitate to comment if you think a company should be added to this section. A popular one is (71) Alima Pure, but they’re on the pricier side. Another great option is (72) Everyday Minerals; especially check out their ultra-soft brushes as well. (73) Youngblood, and (74) Lily Lolo offer mineral makeup products in addition to a wide selection of pressed items, lipsticks, and creams.

i just discovered your blog and i’m already in love! Thank you for posting so many helpful articles, especially this one which helps break down popular brands that we can trust. I just started working at Sephora so I’m still learning everything in the industry, and this article has made me much more knowledgeable!

Hi Nina! Congrats on the new job, that’s awesome! I’m happy to help and I wish you good luck with the job! 🙂

Hi suzi and thanks for putting this list together! You might have heard recently but if not, lime crime was recently busted for not being vegan/cruelty free as they claim. The owner, Doe Deere, has removed ingredients such as carmine from the website, but the ingredient is still printed on the packaging of products where red pigment occurs. I’M not trying to assassinate anyone’s character here as I’m a huge fan of lime crime, I feel very strongly that honesty shouldn’t be compromised just because veganism is perceived as a fashion trend. people are really counting on those labels being… Read more »

I posted about Lime Crime recently! Keep in mind, they were busted for not being vegan years ago (before 2012 I believe). Their stuff is vegan today (but I would not support this company in a million years!).

Jamie Torrence

Really! I thought the vegan claim being busted was a recent thing. Its a shame how deep the rabbit hole of crazy goes, the products and packaging are so cute! Just SO much drama :/

I know! I love so badly the packing, but I understand why many people don’t wanna buy it anymore. It’s about false publicity, they lied to the customers just using the “cruelty free” and “vegan” labels for marketing stategy and sell more products. Fine they are like the clamed, but unfortuneally people won’t believe it so easy. I mean, at least with Shiseido, L’Oreal, Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, P&G, Uniliever and Clorox we know what’s happening and we have the power of changing the things not buying their products but supporting their brands which are cruelty free with the pros… Read more »

Kylie Cosmetics is cruelty-free, but I’ll have to get back to you about the other brands.

Check in Jefree Star’s website in FAQ section, and I have curiosity about Kylie Cosmetics….

Marcela
Guest

I’m not able to find Nars, Becca, Illamasqua, ByTerry, nor Korres in The Leaping Bunny or Peta websites. Where were you able to find that these companies are cruelty-free?

Suzi
Guest
I talk about this throughout my blog. From my list of cruelty-free brands page: “There are 3 types of cruelty-free brands in this list: those that are certified by the Leaping Bunny, those that have signed PETA’s pledge, and those that aren’t affiliated with any cruelty-free organization.(…) Since cruelty-free certification is done on a voluntary basis, not all cruelty-free companies are certified. If a company or brand has an official cruelty-free claim, and if they don’t test products nor ingredients on animals, don’t hire third parties to test on animals on their behalf, and don’t sell their products in China,… Read more »

What about New Avon LLCc? It is cruelty free, it’s not the same Avon since they were bought out last year.

Mellissa
Guest

I don’t understand why The Body Shop isn’t listed. 100% vegetarian and always cruelty free all ingredients and products not tested on animals…

Animal Lover
Guest

Body Shop is owned by a company that does test on animals.

k
Guest

So is urban decay, and Nars, as well as many others on the list at the bottom.

KiBe
Guest

Urban Decay is also owned by L’Oreal, doesn’t stop it being a massive omission if you are ok with that being on the list…

Billie Denise McGhee

I think this post is meant to focus only on makeup brands.

Luísa

I love it! Thank you so much for making this guide. I have just started to switch my products to cruelty-free brands and this was very helpful.

Really happy to hear this! Good luck making the switch!

Roshanna Cuthbertson

Hey, I am from the north of England and I have been looking around to see if all my favourite brands are cruelty free (Rimmel, Maybelline, OPI, Nails Inc, Mac) and I can’t find any info anywhere for most of them. I checked PETA’s website and they didn’t have any of them. Also a shop I adore is called ‘Select’ and I can’t find out whether they are either. Really don’t want to keep giving my money to these companies if they are hurting animals in their production/testing process. Don’t suppose you know anything about the companies I’ve listed above?

Suzi
Guest

Hi Roshanna. Let’s see! Rimmel, Maybelline, OPI, and MAC are not cruelty-free. MAC hasn’t been cruelty-free since 2012. I believe Nails Inc is cruelty-free though, but I’ve never heard about Select. I suggest dropping them a line if their contact info is available.

Roshanna Cuthbertson
Guest

Thank you sweetpea! Will be avoiding them from now on xxx

Roshanna Cuthbertson
Guest
Hey thanks ladies, finally wrapped my head around all the cruelty free stuff. Replaced my OPI polishes with some a little bit more friendly to our furry buddies! And now I have a new job I’ve been super careful.with who I’m buying from. Mac is a big no no, which was upsetting for me at first because I had a list of fancy stuff to buy when I started the new job and there were a few mac products there. Now I just stick with Make Up Revolution and a few other brands. Make up Rev is amazing quality and… Read more »

All marks and Spencer make up is cruelty free and basically all the above sell in China where it is compulsory to test on animals. Although animal testing has been banned for cosmetic use in Europe boots own products should be ok as I don’t think there’s a boots China

Zoe Mcfadyen
Guest

rimmel maybeline & mac are not cruelty free

Suzi
Guest

I always mention it in my posts when a cruelty-free brand is owned by a company that isn’t cruelty-free, but I don’t think it would be fair to scratch them off because of it!

Suzi
Guest

Made in China ≠ retailing in China!

s0fa
Guest

great article, thanks for putting this together. other brands are kevyn aucoin, ellis faas, charlotte tilbury, and aveda. I don’t know if they have the leaping bunny logo, but they are cruelty-free as far as my knowledge. I’ll be transitioning to using cruelty-free products soon as I’m finished with my makeup. First step is swapping my Maybelline mascara for Urban Decay. I’m considering saving the Maybelline wand to reuse – something for others to consider?

Valarie
Guest

Hi. Thanks for the information. Re: Sonya K.’s brushes, I don’t see it as cruelty to an animal to clip or shave it’s fur. Otherwise, shaving sheep for their wool or shaving or trimming a long haired dog in the summer would be considered cruel. As far as Loreal, they profit off the sales of the companies they aquire. Some of those profits go to research and thus to cruel experimentation on animals.

Suzi
Guest

Factory farms and the conditions and methods in which animal hair is obtained is what’s cruel. Sadly, it’s not as painless as giving the goats “a gentle haircut” like you would give your dog in the summer. Far from it.

Is Arbonne on your list?

Suzi
Guest

Nope, Arbonne is fishy.

Chelle
Guest

No it’s not Arbonne is Certified Vegan!
Yet there are companies that are on here that aren’t even vegan..& some that are barely “cruelty-free”..clearly the standard are low here & some research needs to be done!
Hmmmmmm…

OS

To anyone who really knows the information indepth. I am looking for a manufacturing company that is purely 100% vegan / vegetarian , cruelty-free, does not test on animals. All kinds of cosmetics, A-Z, beginning to the end, just everything, if its cosmetic. Any one could refer me to a good reliable manufacturing factory, prefer to do OEM (they do the production with my brand on it). I am in Asia, so I prefer the high-end at lowest possible cost. I am totally new to this, planning on own company, major, not minor. Even a multi list of several product… Read more »

Does anyone know if the cosmetic brushes from IT Cosmetics are cruelty free?

Suzi

Yep, they’re synthetic. 🙂

Aimee

Please add the Body Shop to your list. They have great products, and are all cruelty free. http://www.thebodyshop.ca/en/index.aspx, (the bunny logo bottom left of page). According to Cruelty Cutter, Merle Norman is also cruelty free, but I cannot find that info on their website. Can you confirm?

Thanks so much for this info!

You forgot Boots No7 and Boots Botanics brands sold now in the US at targets as well as Walgreen’s online and Ulta beauty stores. Great products and great prices.

Elizabeth Braun
Guest

Yup! Quite a lot of people have the wrong idea about Boots as their other business – Boots Pharmaceuticals – have a presence in China. However, I’ve checked with both natives and ex pats who live in the China and can confirm that Boots have *no* retail presence in China (which I did read a quote from them somewhere saying that the animal testing laws there had decided them against opening stores there) and so their own brand products are still cruelty-free. =)

NYR Organic is a great cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certified direct sales company whose parent company is Neal’s Yard Remedies in England. Very ethical company and great products.

Thanks, I meant to add them!

Another brand is Omorovicza!!! They’re a skin care brand but products like the Queen of Hungary facial mist and the thermal cleansing balm are awesome!

Jessica

Unfortunately they announced two days ago that they’re now selling in China – SO sad!

Rachel Zamsky

Lipstick Queen – my favorite lipsticks – are also CF. They are missing from your Luxury brand. Consider adding them!

Suzi

Yes!!

Thank you so much! I was going to buy the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette for my giveaway but since they’re even affiliated with cruelty companies I will surely pass. I’m going to get the E.L.F multi palette =)

Sells in China, unfortunately not cruelty-free.

Thanks for this! (PS, I think I read somewhere that Alba was also cruelty free…. I may have missed it, but I don’t remember seeing it on your lists! Thanks again!

Ripley Wolfwood

Oh, cool, thanks!

Suzi

Aveda is a little bit tricky. They don’t test on animals and aren’t sold in China, but they’re owned by Estee Lauder and their official animal testing policy is not to test on animals unless required by law. The thing is, they’re not sold in China which means they’re cruelty-free factually but not when looking at their policy.

tl;dr they’re cruelty-free for the moment but if they start selling in China and this changes, I’ll give you guys an update!

Caitlin Rose
Guest
So sorry for the late reply, but thought I’d share! I’m an Aveda-trained cosmetologist and recently went back to their institute for massage therapy training, and we actually just talked about products again last week! I’m proud to say Aveda is 100% cruelty free and will remain so, as well as its sister companies: Sean John and Smashbox. I can’t say I’m as proud of Esteé Lauder and the rest of its companies. Aveda refuses to sell products in China and will continue to do so until the procedures such as animal testing change. Their statement about “..unless required by… Read more »

Thanks Caitlin! I consider Aveda to be cruelty-free myself, albeit owned by EL which isn’t.

i’ve just found your page and I really want to start becoming more aware of cruelty free makeup and which one’s aren’t and this has helped me a lot! Although, I have purchased many products from loreal paris etc. I am considering using them up and never purchasing from them again! thank you for this! Farihah | Cutie Pie Frizzy

I did buy a few of the drug store brands and even though im not nessasarily impressed with the quality knowing they’re crulety free totally makes up for it. Thanks for the heads up on all these wonderful products!! 🙂

Suzi
Guest

I include ALL cruelty-free companies, even when their parent company tests on animals! The Leaping Bunny, PETA, and every big cruelty-free blogger’s lists do exactly the same.

Also, for every brand that’s owned by a parent company that tests, I mentioned it in their blurb. I don’t know why I’m being attacked, but I hope you feel better soon! 🙂

Suzi

Hi Samantha! Unfortunately their products are being tested on animals in China, and they lost their cruelty-free status. 🙁

Samantha
Guest
This is not true. From their VP of Marketing (they are actually a client):Caudalie does no animal testing and requires all its suppliers do the same. We do not test our products on animals in china. It is indeed true that today, no cosmetics brand selling in China can obtain certificates from the Chinese authorities to ensure that no test is performed on animals. We are hopeful that things are changing rapidly in China since the European authorities are trying to put pressure on Chinese authorities to ensure that their regulations evolve and adopt alternative methods practiced in Europe for… Read more »

Hi, everyone! I have my own little list of CF and non-CF brands here:https://kgbuganan.wordpress.com/2015/08/01/fyi-substance-over-style-goes-cruelty-free/. It was last updated yesterday. Hope it helps!

Deborah Dixey

Say what? “Bite Beauty is Leaping Bunny-certified but their parent company is not cruelty-free.” ? Like that makes it ok? How do you justify that?

Mer
Guest

Awesome list! Do you have any similar guides on face/skincare for those of us just starting the transition? The lists of brands are so overwhelming when you’ve never heard of a lot of them, but I thought you broke this up really nicely (and I already love a lot of these brands – goodbye Benefit though!)

Suzi

Thanks Mer! I’m taking this into consideration and I’ll work on something. 🙂

Stoni Fortney

LimeLight by Alcone’s skincare is cruelty free as well as chemical, paraben, and dye free.

Suzi

I love Lush! I they don’t offer many makeup options, but you’re totally right!

Eliza Nightingale

Thanks for all this awesome information! As a beauty junkie I can completely believe individuals invest $160 billion dollars. There are so many items out there it’s difficult to know who to believe in. It’s very essential to do your own analysis and find out what you like.

Mirabella Beauty is also cruelty free:) mirabellabeauty.com, love their foundations and cc creams!!

Thank you for your research and providing everyone with this knowledge ♡ now to look into hair product and body products like deodorants , toothpaste, lotions etc..

Made in China is totally okay, as long as they don’t sell their products in China.

Suzi

Oooh, thanks for pointing that out! Charlotte Tilbury IS cruelty-free.

LC

Thank you for helping us find cruelty free products. Is there a way to produce a list of cruelty free lines that are not owned by companies who test. I find it very confusing and would like to purchase from lines who have no affiliation to others who due weather in China or anywhere else. Thank you for your time!

Suzi
Guest

Hi LC, thanks for your kind words. The only cruelty-free brands that are owned by a parent company that tests are marked as “Owned by X”. No brands on my lists sell in mainland China. If you find that a brand started selling in China, please let me know. 🙂

Hello. I found this on Colourpop’s site :

“You will be happy to know that all of our Lippie Liners and Lippie Stix are Vegan. Almost all of our Super Shock Shadows and Super Shock Cheeks are vegan. With the following exceptions:
Tea Party – Super Shock Shadow
Bae – Super Shock Shadow
Mittens – Super Shock Shadow
……………………
Tulle – Ultra Matte Lip
Call me- Crème Gel Colour & Liner
Best O – Crème Gel Colour & Liner
No Shame – Crème Gel Colour & Liner
DTLA – Crème Gel Colour & Liner”.

I was sure about the fact that Colourpop is a cruelty free brand till now…

Mary
Guest

cruelty free does not equal vegan. cruelty free means it’s not tested on animals, it can still contains animal products though. So colourpop is still cruelty free. Just don’t buy the non-vegan products?

Suzi

Thanks, I’ll look into it and add them!

Your post has really helped me! Thank you so much! I am vegan, and I choose to not use any makeup tested on animals. I appreciate your list! I found some new brands, as well as some familiar ones I didn’t know were cruelty free.

The Body Shop isn’t cruelty free- not happy you’re providing false information here. L’Oreal bought them, and L’Oreal are notorious for animal testing- also they sell in China.

The Body Shop is Cruelty Free they were bought by Loreal but chose to remain Cruelty Free and dont sell in China, the same goes for Urban Decay and NYX

Hi, this is such an amazing list, very informative. I have the summary on my phone so I can look at it every time I’m buying makeup! A few brands you can add to your cruelty-free list: – Sleek (really good eyeshadow palettes as well as blush, highlighter and contour kits), – Makeup Revolution (very affordable makeup, they do good eyeshadow palettes, many are dupes of expensive ones such as Lorac Pro palette, UD Naked, Too Faced Chocolate bar etc), – Freedom Makeup: owned by the same company as MUR (very affordable and they have good eyebrow products in a… Read more »

Um yeah, if something is made in CHINA it is highly suspect since THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT REQUIRES ANY COSMETIC TO HAVE ANIMAL CRUELTY TESTS ATTACHED TO IT—HOW CAN YOU SUGGEST THAT EDWARD BESS COULD BE CRUELTY FREE IF MADE IN CHINA—THINK ABOUT IT AND GOOD TO KNOW HE MAKES HIS MAKE UP–THERE—I WILL STAY AWAY FROM HIM ALTOGETHER.

THE USA IS STILL A PLACE PEOPLE CAN MAKE MAKE-UP AND SHOULD STOP THINKING ONLY OF PROFITEERING BY MAKING THEIR CRAP IN CHINA.

Jenny

Why are you yelling?

Ember
Guest

Correct me if I’m wrong- but I thought that only applied if the item was then to be sold in China? I thought products could be made there (for reduced costs) and then shipped internationally without being tested on animals- only those sold there are required to be tested
