Finding a quality full coverage foundation can be difficult, but when you factor in the requirements of it having to be both Cruelty-free (not tested on animals) and Vegan (contains no animal ingredients), then it become extremely difficult.
As more brands are now committing to a cruelty-free policy, it’s become a lot more accessible to find full coverage foundations from drugstore to high-end and now we’re seeing a growing number of brands making 100% Vegan foundations as well!
I’ve rounded up 8 of the very best cruelty-free and vegan full coverage foundations and 4 more for those who choose to support cruelty-free brands owned by a parent company that tests on animals.
Drugstore Vegan Foundations
These drugstore vegan foundations are under $10 but offers some of the best full-coverage that’s comparable to higher-end brands!
Wet N Wild CoverAll Cream Foundation ($9.99)
Update: May 2019. wet n wild is no longer considered cruelty-free as they were recently caught selling their products in mainland China where post-market animal testing may be conducted on their products. We no longer recommend any of wet n wild products as a cruelty-free option.
