Kylie Cosmetics is a wildly popular makeup brand created by Kylie Jenner but is Kylie Cosmetics cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Kylie Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?
Kylie Cosmetics is Cruelty-free! None of Kylie Cosmetics’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
However, it should be noted that Coty owns a majority stake in Kylie Cosmetics. Coty is a corporation that does test on animals when required by law.
Kylie Cosmetics Animal Testing Policy
There is no official statement on Kylie Cosmetics’ website about their animal testing policy except for this short proclamation: “Kylie CosmeticsSM by Kylie Jenner products
So I emailed the brand asking for more information about their animal testing policy. They responded and confirmed Kylie Cosmetics does 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 snippet of the email response I received from Kylie Cosmetics:
“Kylie Cosmetics does not test on animals. We also work closely with our suppliers to ensure our ingredients are not tested on animals.“
Is Kylie Cosmetics Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Kylie Cosmetics has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Coty Owns 51% Stake in Kylie Cosmetics
In 2019, Coty acquired a 51% stake in Kylie Cosmetics. But Coty and some of their other subsidiary brands test on animals when required by law.
Although Kylie Cosmetics is partly owned by Coty, the brand has remained committed to being a cruelty-free brand.
You can find Kylie Cosmetics’ cruelty-free products at Ulta.
Is Kylie Cosmetics Vegan?
Not all of Kylie Cosmetics’ products are vegan as some of their products contain beeswax, carmine, or other animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Kylie Cosmetics does have some vegan options.
Please reference below for a list of Kylie Cosmetics vegan products.

Additionally, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Kylie Cosmetics’ sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Is Kylie Cosmetics‘ Mica Ethically-Sourced? I emailed Kylie Cosmetics to ask if their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor. They responded saying they’ll reached out to their lab to verify and will get back to me. But I never heard back from the brand again.
