In the world of cosmetics, we have SO many brands to choose from. When I purchase makeup or receive it in PR, it is a necessity for me to use cruelty-free. I strongly believe that there is NO reason to test cosmetics on animals. Below are the three certified cruelty-free logos to look for when buying cruelty-free makeup.
Here’s a list of some cruelty-free brands, separated by mid -high end and drugstore.. (I will do a separate blog post for vegan cosmetic brands.)
Mid -High End Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands:
Urban Decay, Too Faced, Tarte, Bare Minerals, Buxom, IT Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills, TheBalm, Bite, Becca, Cover FX, Hourglass, Pur Minerals, Smashbox, OFRA, Jeffree Star, Lime Crime, Dose of Colours, Sigma, Lorac, Ben Nye, Beauty Blender, KKW, Kylie Cosmetics, Glossier, & Coloured Raine.
Drugstore Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands:
E.l.f, Milani, NYX, bh Cosmetics, Physician’s Formula, Pixi, Wet n’ Wild, Colourpop, Jordana, Essence, L.A. Girl, Hard Candy, Flower, Sonia Cashuk, Ardell, Real Techniques, Catrice, Eco Tools, & Makeup Geek.
All of my favorite makeup products come from these cruelty free brands. I am so thankful that Anastasia, Tarte, and Urban Decay are cruelty free, or else I wouldn’t have any of my favorite makeup products.
Earlier this year, NARS made the decision to leave the cruelty-free list. I absolutely love NARS products and I intend on finishing the bottles of foundation I have already purchased and used. But after that, I won’t be repurchasing any NARS products.
I’ll update this list as more are added. Let me know in the comments if I missed any of your favorites. There are so many options out there in the cruelty-free cosmetic world, and you’re saving precious animals when you try them out!
