Creating A Cruelty Free Make Up Bag


Another one of my goals this year that I haven't spoken about on my blog is being cruelty-free, in terms of beauty products (eventually vegan, however, good things take time and isn't something I plan on doing straight away). I have no idea what of my current beauty products are cruelty-free, but I definitely want to make my beauty a little less cruel. While I'm not going to throw any products out when it comes to needing to buy new stuff I am going to buy cruelty-free. I thought I would share with you a list of the brands that I currently use and whether they are cruelty-free or not.

If they have YES next to them they are cruelty free, and if NO they are not. If there is anything else written next to them they also have an explanation.



Chanel - NO this one I'm really sad about because I use their CC cream and I love it my favourite eyeshadow is also a Chanel (which have about two uses left) thus, I am going to have to find a new favourite make-up brand.

Elizabeth Arden- SORT OF, I am also really sad about this one! While Elizabeth Arden is cruelty-free they do state that they test on animals where required by law, they also sell in China which means they do test on animals. I won't be repurchasing this brand. I love the eight-hour cream and some of my favourite products are from Elizabeth Arden but it isn't worth it!

Real Techniques - YES! I was so pleased about this because I love the brushes so much!

Nutrimetics- YES

Natio - YES

Rimmel London- NO

Australis - YES

Formula 10.0.6- YES (Thank Goodness)

ColourPop- YES

Covergirl- NO

Revlon- SORT OF, This is another brand that claims it is cruelty-free however they sell in China where it is required by law to test on animals, so no it isn't.

e.l.f.- YES

Za - YES

Tanya Burr Cosmetics- YES

These are just some of my beauty product brands that I currently own and in all honesty I am pleasantly surprised while there are companies I am extremely disappointed in *Cough* Chanel *Cough* and others I was disappointed that they sold in China, although Elizabeth Arden is working with organizations they still sell in China which they can't really defend themselves on. You can check out their statement here.

**After writing this post I have decided to get rid of my beauty products that aren't cruelty-free (bye, bye Chanel), I am however keeping my Elizabeth Arden products until they are all used. This is because of the amount of Elizabeth Arden and the cost of Elizabeth Arden I have. I will NOT be repurchasing Elizabeth Arden until they are cruelty-free. I am also going to be getting rid of the products that I am not sure of.

  1. I'm almost entirely cruelty free, and I find that more high Street brands tend to be cruelty free like make up revolution, Barry m, sleek. Urban decay and kset von d are also both CF if you want a slightly higher brand xx

  2. I'm also mostly cruelty free, this year I'll try to be fully & I always check if things that I buy are cruelty free. If I receive something that is not, I'll probably use it anyways because then I haven't supported animal testing with my own money :D 50/50, but on my way to be a cruelty free!

    1. I totally agree with this, I really struggled with the whole do I finish using it or just get rid of it. I totally think it is such a waste if it's just thrown out, so I came to the conclusion I'd give it to friends and they were all pretty stoked!! xo

    1. Part of me was shocked to see the brands that tested on animals, but part of me wasn't shocked at all. Definitely disappointed in some brands though!!

  4. There is no need in this current climate to test on animals! An excellent article.

    Do you know if Kiko is safe to use? My wife uses this brand and she would hate it if they tested on animals.

  7. Thanks for sharing. It's good to know products that are cruelty-free and those that are not. I'm actually surprised with some of them. I didn't expect Chanel to not be one of the cruelty-free brands.

    1. I really like some of ZA Cosmetics but others I'm not a fan of, but since researching and finding out they are cruelty free I will definitely be suing more of their products!
