Although it’s easy to think your favorite mascara is harmless, there are good chances it might not be cruelty-free. If you’re a Sephora-shopper, we’ve put together a list of the best vegan makeup brands at Sephora.
This easy and up-to-date list can ensure you’re staying true to your morals while adding new makeup finds to your collection!
What Does Vegan Makeup Mean?
- Not tested on animals
- No ingredients that are derived from animal sources (i.e. milk)
We’ve included brands that are entirely vegan as well as brands that have vegan options since it can be hard to find your perfect products with all-vegan brands.

Milk Makeup is a fairly new beauty brand that creates the latest and greatest products. Although you might not think they’re a vegan makeup brand based on their name, they recently made the switch to being 100% vegan and cruelty-free!
Their products not only look nice, they perform nice as well. Aside from avoiding animal cruelty, they also avoid parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, mineral oil, talc, and even more (view their ingredient blacklist).
Previously known as just Kat Von D, the brand was sold and endured a re-brand. One huge change was the name! Now, they’re known as KVD Vegan Beauty. As you might guess, they removed all cruel practices and made their line 100% vegan.
