There are a handful of makeup brands who love their products as much as they love their furry friends. They prefer to go the natural way instead of subjecting innocent animals to cosmetic testing. Popular brands who’ve jumped on the cruelty-free bandwagon are Nykaa, L.A Girl, Plum, Coloressence, The Body Shop, IsaDora, Forest Essentials, NYX and many more. We admire them for their making this choice and the fact that they’re sensitive to both, the welfare of animals and people. If you support cruelty-free makeup products too, you certainly must add the ones listed below to your makeup bag.

Even though Nykaa started their ecommerce store in 2012, they recently launched their in-house products. For makeup lovers, this space is paradise! The website has so much to offer and serves as an umbrella for various brands. Apart from their eyeliners, kajals and nail polishes, you should totally pick up their lipsticks! They’re so creamy and wonderful, and we bet you’ll get addicted to every shade.
L.A Girl is a US based makeup brand that does not encourage the use of parabens or animal testing. The brand stresses on quality from an affordable price perspective. This pro concealer will make a lovely addition to your makeup bag because it conceals skin imperfections and gives it a flawless, dewy finish after applied.
Believe it or not, but all of IsaDora’s makeup are clinically tested and are skin-friendly. None of them are scented or tested on animals (Which is AWESOME!) Try this face sculptor and we bet that it won’t disappoint. The best part is that the palette can be used as a blusher, highlighter and bronzer. It’s a total must-have product if you ask us!
For all you kajal lovers out there, make sure to check Plum’s products out! They’re free from chemicals, aren’t tested on animals and are completely natural. This particular one contains mineral pigments and contains no synthetic dyes, chemicals or preservatives. Each time you apply the kohl to your eyes, it’ll make them look stunning and oh-so-sexy!
The Body Shop believes in one thing, ‘enrich, not exploit’. It does not support cosmetic testing on animals and most of its products are made from natural ingredients. We heard that the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream is a wonderful product! It provides full coverage to your skin and conceals blemishes like a pro.
The Body Shop
When it comes to makeup products, Forest Essentials follows a vegan approach. All their products contain rare plant extracts, cold pressed oils, herbal infusions and steam-distilled pure essential oils. Picking this lovely lip balm will be a splendid choice because it contains almond oil, kokum butter and honey. It’ll not only leave a delicious scent on your lips, but keep them moisturized, nourished and hydrated as well.
We love products from Coloressence because ALL of them aren’t tested on animals and are 100% vegetarian. Not to forget that they also come with an affordable price tag. It’s the perfect makeup brand for college goers. Take this amazing panstick for example. It contains an anti-aging formula that helps give skin a fresh, youthful appearance. While the pan stick moisturizes your skin, it also protects it from the harmful UV rays.
You may not know this, but NYX is home to a bunch of cruelty-free products. The brand is known to excel in quality and design. If you haven’t used any NYX makeup products in the past, now is a good time to start! For late night parties and shaadi functions, this palette will certainly fetch you a bunch of compliments. Each palette features 10 vibrant shades and will make you look like a stunner in all your selfies.
Before you go ahead and purchase makeup products from Blue Heaven, you must know that the cruelty-free brand is the baby of brothers, Mr. Charanjit Singh and Mr. Gurnam Singh. The beauty company was started in 1974. If you're familiar with using their products, only you would know how affordable and amazing they are. This blush on is a makeup product you should totally try out. The blush comes with an applicator and is designed to make your cheeks look rosy pink.
One of the main reasons to pick a SoulTree lipstick up is because all the ingredients used are obtained from animal farming. Not just their skincare products, even their makeup ones do not contain a trace of lead, petrochemicals, carbon, artificial colours or animal fat. If you’re on the hunt to find the perfect lipstick, check these shades out. They’re made from wild honey, almond oil and organic ghee. It’ll keep your pout hydrated and will stay put for about 8 good hours.
You have may loved Lotus Herbals for its wide range of skincare products, but you should totally check out their makeup products too! From blushes to foundations, you’ll find every type of makeup product here. Free from animal testing, they’re made from only herbal ingredients. We’re lovin’ this particular compact powder because it's equipped with SPF 15 and is safe for sensitive skin. You’ve got to try it to believe it!
