It can be difficult for consumers who are concerned about animal welfare to purchase products without knowing whether those products were tested on animals or created with animal products. Fortunately for those beauty-obsessed shoppers who want a clean conscious, several brands make it clear that they do not stand for animal cruelty, including the following.


While Covergirl hopped on the cruelty-free bandwagon toward the end of 2018, conscientious makeup lovers were glad to have another affordable, drugstore beauty brand to consider when shopping for new products and looks.


What feels better than filling your basket with makeup without breaking the bank? Doing so without contributing to animal cruelty! Everyone’s favorite budget-friendly makeup brand never tests on or uses animal byproducts. This includes the brand’s brushes and false lashes!

Āether Beauty

Not only is new-brand-on-the-block Āether Beauty vegan and cruelty-free, but the brand creates gorgeous palettes for more than just your eyes! Beauty lovers can check out Āether Beauty’s cheek palettes along with its highlighters and eyeshadows, almost all of which come with a healthy dose of shimmer! When you’re done with the products, their cardboard packaging is entirely recyclable, too.

Becca Cosmetics

Becca’s highlighters have received rave reviews for years, and many fans of the brand are just excited about its promise to remain cruelty-free. In fact, Becca Cosmetics won’t even sell products in countries that legally require animal testing.

Urban Decay

Fans of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes or eyelid Primer Potion can breathe a sigh of relief that the company doesn’t test on animals and has long been certified by PETA. The brand also sells several vegan products. Yes, that included All Nighter Setting Spray!

Too Faced

Known for its Better Than Sex mascara among other products, Too Faced offers better performance than drugstore beauty brands, and the company does all of this without testing on animals! PETA even recommends the Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in place of blush by Benefit, a company that still tests on animals.

Antonym Cosmetics

Antonym’s dedication to the planet and its inhabitants includes gorgeous bamboo boxes in place of compacts, chemical-free formulas, and a promise never to test on animals. The brand has earned certifications from Leaping Bunny,, and EcoCert.
