Aritst Couture is a California-based cosmetic company founded by celebrity makeup artist Angel Merino, but is Artist Couture cruelty-free and 100% vegan in 2021? We’ve got the answers here!
Is Artist Couture Cruelty-Free?
Artist Couture is Cruelty-free! None of Artist Couture’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Artist Couture Animal Testing Policy
Artist Couture has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals, they do not allow others to test on their behalf, their suppliers also do not test on animals, they do not allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is what’s currently stated on Artist Couture’s website:
Is Artist Couture Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Artist Couture has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Is Artist Couture Vegan?
Not all of Artist Couture’s products are vegan as some of its products contain carmine. However, Artist Couture does have some vegan options.
When I asked Artist Couture which of their makeup products are vegan, they responded stating,
“ALL ARTIST COUTURE PRODUCTS ARE CRUELTY FREE. ANY ITEM CONTAINING THE INGREDIENT CARMINE IS NOT CONSIDERED VEGAN. SUPERNOVA, ROSE, AND BROADWAY ALL CONTAIN CARMINE. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REFORMULATING THESE THREE SHADES TO NO LONGER INCLUDE CARMINE. ONCE THIS IS DONE WE WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT.“
Which of Artist Couture Products are Vegan?
It’s great to hear that almost all of Artist Couture cosmetics are already vegan and that they are working on reformulating the few that contain carmine to be vegan in the future!
For the time being, avoid Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powders in Supernova, Rose, and Broadway – not vegan. And any other product that lists Carmine in its ingredients.
Some of Artist Couture best-sellers that are already vegan include:
- Caliente Silk Cream Lipstick
- Diamond Lights Finisher
- Diamond Lip Tease Lip Gloss
- Midnight Maven Eyeshadow Palette
- Plush Pout Lip Gloss
- Silk Cream Lipstick
- Supreme Nudes and Pressed Pigment Eyeshadow Palette

Aritst Couture’s headquarters is based in: USA
Artist Couture’s products are manufactured in: USA
Artist Couture does not claim to be a sustainable company.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Artist Couture’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Is Artist Couture’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? I’ve emailed Artist Couture twice to ask if their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor but they never responded back.
