Illamasqua offers a range of highly-pigmented makeup products for everyday users and professional makeup artists, but is Illamasqua cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got all the answers here!
Is Illamasqua Cruelty-Free?
Illamasqua is Cruelty-free! None of Illamasqua’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Illamasqua’s Animal Testing Policy
Illamasqua 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.

Is Illamasqua Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Illamasqua 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 Illamasqua Vegan?
Not all of Illamasqua’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Illamasqua does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Illamasqua vegan products.
You can also find out which of their products are vegan as they’re all marked accordingly on their website under each product description. Or, browse their Vegan Makeup page. See below for an example.
