Surprisingly enough, I found that some of my favorite brands are not only cruelty-free, but vegan as well, making me feel a lot better about the makeup I am using!
For those of you wondering, the reason why buying cruelty-free products is so important is because innocent animals such as bunnies, cats, and even dogs are forced to sit in cages and have products tested on their skin; eventually leading to infections and more often than not, death.
*Any company that sells its product in China is automatically not cruelty-free as it is required by law in China to test on animals.
On that note, I am going to share with you my top 10 favorite cruelty-free makeup companies :)
Products are in order from most affordable to most splurge-worthy.
- e.l.f. Cosmetics
- NYX Cosmetics
- EcoTools (The BEST vegan makeup brushes!)
- Physician's Formula
- Bare Minerals (Note: although they are considered cruelty-free, some of their brushes contain goat hair, so always opt for the synthetic brushes!)
- Kylie Cosmetics (all products are vegan & cruelty free except for the Kylie Lip Kit in shade Candy K).
- IT Cosmetics
- Josie Maran Cosmetics
- Urban Decay
- Lush Cosmetics
