High end brands that don’t test on animals

If your only just starting your cruelty free pledge it can be disheartening to
realise your favourite luxury brands test on animals. I briefly mourned the loss
of my high end lipsticks (which were mostly made up of Mac,Dior and Estee Lauder)
but its important to realise that giving up what were your favourite brands is
a small price to pay to stop the necessary death and suffering of animals.

On the plus side there is still plenty of cruelty free high end brands you
can splurge on, all of which are available in the UK.

                                                              Urban Decay

With the naked palette being such a cult favourite its a relief knowing that Urban Decay

 do not test on animals. Urban decay does a huge range of make up from long lasting

lipsticks to mascaras but eye shadow is what the brand really excels in because of the great

 pigmentation and long lasting colour.

Luckily for me Urban Decay is the only high end eye shadow I’ve ever invested in finding

 this brand to be the best for colour range and staying power.

The Tarte collection is perfect for those wanting natural products as they

The blushes, which are made of Amazonian clay have appealed greatly to the

beauty community due to their high pigmentation and how they easily they blend

into the skin.

They also do a vegan friendly collection.

When Hourglass cosmetics realised their ambient lighting powder it quickly became

a huge hit in the beauty world followed by their ambient blushes and palettes that

were the same lightweight formula that added soft colour and definition to the face.

Although Bare minerals do not test on animals it’s worth noting that some

of their brushes are made of goat and pony hair, although they assure no

animals were harmed in the process.

  1. Disheartening is an understatement – I was devastated when I realised just how many of my favourite products are tested on animals or contain bits of dead ones. Great post. I love all the brands you’ve mentioned – just wish they’d go fully vegan! 🙂
