Vegan Makeup at Sephora (No Parent Company Testing)

I recently got a gift card to Sephora but since deciding to go cruelty-free and vegan with my makeup and skincare back in 2012, I haven’t set foot in a Sephora store in forever.

Sephora is Not a Cruelty-Free Brand

The reason being is that the Sephora house brand isn’t cruelty-free as they have a number of stores in mainland China where animal testing is required by Chinese laws, so I never felt like it was right to buy anything, even if it was cruelty-free/vegan, from Sephora as I felt my money would be indirectly funding more animal tests done by the Sephora house brand.

Since receiving my Sephora gift card, I wanted to do a little research to see if maybe I can find some makeup products that were from brands that do not test on animals and that were also vegan and do not contain animal ingredients.

To narrow down my search even further, I also wanted to avoid cruelty-free brands with a parent company that continues to test on animals such as Urban Decay (owned by L’Oreal); Too Faced (owned by Estee Lauder); NARS + Bare Minerals (owned by Shiseido).

Cruelty-Free and Vegan Makeup at Sephora

To my pleasant surprise, Sephora has a small (but growing) selection of vegan makeup products with no parent company testing!

I’ve decided to publish this list of vegan makeup brands at Sephora with the hopes that it’ll help some of you find and shop for both cruelty-free and vegan makeup at Sephora!

    You forgot to include tarte. They are known to be cruelty free and vegan.

      I thought the company that owns Tarte is based in Asia and owns other non-cruelty free cosmetic brands?
