Is Hourglass Cruelty-Free + Vegan in 2019?

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

Hourglass is a luxury makeup brand available at Sephora, Cult Beauty, and Nordstrom. Hourglass was acquired by Unilever in 2017, so is Hourglass still cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Hourglass Cruelty-Free in 2019?

Hourglass is cruelty-free in 2019; none of Hourglass’ products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world. However, it should be noted that Hourglass is owned by Unilever, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019.

Hourglass Animal Testing Policy (2019)

Hourglass was acquired by Unilever in 2017 but since then, Hourglass has remained committed to never testing their products or ingredients on animals. Hourglass products are also not sold in-stores in mainland China and are not required to be tested on animals, by Chinese laws.

On Hourglass’ website, it states “Hourglass Cosmetics does not test on animals during product development or production. In addition, we do not provide authoritization to any third parties to perform animal testing on our products.”

Hourglass animal testing statement (2019)

We are happy to add Hourglass to our list of cruelty-free brands!

Is Hourglass Vegan?

Hourglass is not an entirely vegan brand (yet!) Some of Hourglass makeup products do contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, like beeswax, lanolin, and carmine, but Hourglass pledges to be an all-vegan brand by 2020.

Please reference below for a list of Hourglass vegan products.

Hourglass Vegan Product List (2019)

On Hourglass’ website, they have a helpful page listing all their products that claim to be vegan and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. I’ve taken those products that are currently listed as being vegan and compiled this list so you can use it on-the-go!

Want to know which of Hourglass cosmetics’ are not vegan? Check their non-vegan product list at the bottom of this post.

Foundation & Concealer

Powder, Bronzer, Blush, Highlighter

Eyes & Brow

Lips

Skincare

Brushes

This vegan product list is updated as frequently as possible, please be aware that formulations may have changed since the publication of this post. If you have new information to suggest one of the above products isn’t vegan, please email me at info@ethicalelephant.com to let me know.

    I have a few friends that use Hourglass Vegan products, and they swear by them. I don’t wear makeup but I need that Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss. I’m addicted to shiny lips πŸ™‚

    Hi!
    I love your blog! Do you know if any of the new girl lip stylo colours are vegan?
    Thanks, Laura πŸ™‚

      Hey Laura!
      Hm.. I’m not sure if the Hourglass GIRL lip stylo are vegan or not.
      I can’t seem to find a list of ingredients on Hourglass or Sephora’s website. Since it’s a new product, I think the best option is to just keep an eye on Hourglass’ vegan product page. I know they are fairly good at keeping it updated! =) I’ll also be sure to update this list once I receive confirmation
