Not all high-quality and luxury makeup brands test on animals! The following companies are completely cruelty-free, meaning that their products and ingredients aren’t tested on animals at any point of production, and that they don’t sell in mainland China.
1. Kjaer Weis
Kjaer Weis is the creme of the crop when it comes to luxury green makeup. All their products keep healthy skin in mind and are made from top-notch natural ingredients, free of any harmful chemicals. Beautiful, sleek packaging compliments the purity of the products perfectly. They also offer high-quality brushes that are fully synthetic and vegan. Pictured: Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Sun Touched.
Chantecaille offers high-quality and intricate products that aim to achieve a natural, glowy look. Each piece is crafted like a work of art, as their powders and eye shadows often take the shape of sculptures. Pictured: Chantecaille Save The Bees Palette.
3. Ellis Faas
The woman behind the Ellis Faas brand is a talented makeup artist. Since their beginning, Ellis Faas products have been “only tested on supermodels”, which is no joke: they are 100% cruelty-free! With an emphasis on a bold lip — as long as the tone is in harmony with the overall skin tone of its wearer — they offer a wide range of lip, eye, and face products that are both striking and based on natural, “human” colors.

4. Rouge Bunny Rouge
The high-end brand Rouge Bunny Rouge takes inspiration from Tsarism and the Enchanted Garden to create a makeup fantasy world full of luxurious whimsy! Their black-and-white packaging features lovely botanical illustrations and their products are as dreamy as their story. A truly unique brand.
