Which Make-Up Brands Are Cruelty-Free & Which Are Not?


Cosmetics brands can be very good at hiding the fact that they test on animals. Many get away with claiming to be cruelty free because, for the most part they are, however, a lot of brands sell in places which require them to test on animals by law, such as China.
It can be tricky to know where to start when shopping for cruelty free and it isn't always easy to figure out whether or not your favourite names experient on animals. So, this blog post contains two lists: one is a list of brands which are cruelty free, the other is a list of brands which are not cruelty free. Whoever dared to say that there aren't many cruelty free brands out there? Honestly, there are tons and this list contains over 100! You may find yourself surprised at which brands are or aren't cruelty free. Have a read of the lists below, hopefully they will prove useful during your next shopping trip. There are brands for everyone here, both affordable and designer as well as brands which are sold all over the world.
Note that the parent companies of some brands are not cruelty free. For example, Too Faced are cruelty free but they are a subsidiary of Estee Lauder, who are not cruelty free.
