Makeup Revolution is a UK-based affordable makeup brand. Makeup Revolution is sold at Superdrug and Ulta.

Is Makeup Revolution Cruelty-Free?

Makeup Revolution is cruelty-free with some vegan options.

They have confirmed to me that:

  • Makeup Revolution does not test their products or ingredients on animals;
  • Makeup Revolution does not hire third parties to test their products or ingredients on their behalf;
  • Makeup Revolution’s raw material suppliers also do not test on animals and they receive an animal declaration form every year from them stating that no products or raw materials used in their products have been tested on animals;
  • and Makeup Revolution does not sell their products in-stores in Mainland China.

Although not all of Makeup Revolution products are considered vegan as some contain beeswax and carmine, they do indicate and label which of their products are vegan in the product description on their website. They also recently added a vegan section on their website which you can view here! or use the list below.

    Where are these cosmetics made? It is good not to test on animals, but what standards are followed to ensure constant production quality for both raw materials and final products
    Thank you

      Not all of Makeup Revolution products are vegan but I have listed which ones are vegan in this post. They also have a section on their website that ONLY showcases their vegan products, which you can find here >> https://www.revolutionbeauty.com/us/Full-Product-Range/c-61.aspx?AttributeValueIDs=54&InStockOnly=true

      You can also use the filter option on their website, located on the left side, click on the “Vegan” box. When you do this, it will show all their vegan products. If you’re also shopping on their website, under each product description.. they will state if it’s vegan or not.

      So, not everything on their website is vegan but they have made it super easy to figure out which ones are vegan.

      Hope that helps to answer your question!

    But how about products that are produced in China?
    (I’m starting to learn about cruelty-free brands and what that incorporates now)

    Wouldn’t PRC (a.k.a. China) require products produced there to fall under their laws and have animal tested products?

    I just received a Christmas gift – Makeup Revolution London eye shadows (Redemption palette iconic 3) and it states on the packaging, it’s made in PRC.

      Hi Kristine,
      Cosmetics MADE in China are not legally required to be tested on animals, it’s only an issue when cosmetics are SOLD in China.

      So Makeup Revolution or any other cosmetic brand can produce or make their products in China and remain to be cruelty-free, just as long as they’re NOT selling their products in-stores in Mainland China. And I have confirmed that is the case with Makeup Revolution; none of their products are sold in-stores in Mainland China.

      I have a detailed post explaining this, if you wish to learn more >> https://ethicalelephant.com/china-animal-testing-laws-cosmetics-made-china-vs-sold-china/

    Great company; I just got their Fast Base Concealer at Ulta and it’s a good product; so glad it’s vegan and cruelty free, otherwise no way I’d buy it. I plan to buy only their vegan products from now on as long as they turn out to be good too. The prices are great.
