Blinc specializes in eye makeup products and mostly known for their water-resistant “tube-forming” mascara but is Blinc cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? We’ve got the answers here!
Is Blinc Cruelty-Free?
Blinc is Cruelty-free! None of Blinc’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Blinc’s Animal Testing Policy
Blinc has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of Blinc’s official animal testing statement:
Is Blinc Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Blinc 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 Blinc Vegan?
Not all of Blinc’s products are vegan as some of their products contain beeswax and/or carmine. However, Blinc does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Blinc vegan products.
You can also find out which of their products are vegan as they’re marked accordingly on their website under each product description, see below for an example. Or check out this vegan-specific page on their website.
Blinc Vegan Product List
As of 2021, I will no longer be regularly updating this list of Blinc’s vegan products as all of their vegan products are now clearly marked. Check their website for the most up-to-date and accurate information on which products are vegan or not.
The following Blinc products are suitable for vegans and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
- Eyebrow Mousse
- Eyebrow Pencil
- Eyeshadow Primer
- Gel Eyeliner
- Glow & Go – Face & Body Cream Stick Highlighter
- Liquid Eyeliner Pen
- Original Tubing Mascara
- Semi-Permanent Liquid Eyeliner
- Ultra Longwear Eyeliner Pencil
- Ultra Thin Liquid Eyeliner Pen
- UltraVolume Tubing Mascara
- All of Blinc’s makeup brushes are vegan
Where are Blinc cosmetics made?
“None of our formulas are made in China. Blinc is a predominantly US brand, but in the cosmetics world, various countries have certain expertise, so a few of our fomulas are made in other countries. We do however purchase some of our packaging from China.”
Is Blinc Mica Ethically-Sourced? I emailed Blinc twice to ask if their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor but I never heard back from the brand.
I hope this article helped you to understand Blinc’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
