What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

Makeup Geek Vegan Product List

Makeup Geek Vegan Product List

For a full list of Makeup Geek vegan products, we got you covered!

Since Makeup Geek uses the same ingredient label across multiple shades of their color cosmetics, you’ll often find “Carmine” listed as an ingredient under “May Contain +/-” but that doesn’t necessarily mean all their shades contain Carmine. This makes it a little difficult to know which ones are vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

Thankfully, on Makeup Geek’s website, they list all of their products and shades that contain Carmine and are not classified as being vegan. But I always find it helpful to have a list of products that are considered vegan instead of the other way around!

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Makeup Geek has over 100 makeup shades that are vegan-friendly! To help you figure out which of their colors are carmine-free (and therefore vegan), I’ve created this handy list of Makeup Geek vegan products!

    I ordered cocoa bear, frappe, latte and creme brulee having researched that they are carmine free and vegan friendly but was surprised to see carmine included in ingredient -listing. So these shades and others listed on ur page are definitely vegan friendly?

      I checked the 4 eye shadow colors you mentioned and I didn’t see Carmine listed as an ingredient. However if you see Carmine in the ingredient list under “May Contain”.. this doesn’t necessarily mean that the particular color contains carmine. They sometimes use the same ingredient label across multiple shades. If you want extra reassurance whether the colors you bought are carmine-free, Makeup Geek themselves have a list you can check out here! https://www.makeupgeek.com/content/makeup-geek-cruelty-free-and-vegan-info/
