Makeup Revolution (Revolution Beauty) is a UK-based affordable makeup brand but is Makeup Revolution cruelty-free and vegan?
Is Makeup Revolution Cruelty-Free?
Makeup Revolution is Cruelty-free! None of Makeup Revolution’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
In an email response, Makeup Revolution confirmed:
- 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
theirproducts in stores in Mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is what’s currently stated on Makeup Revolution’s website:
Makeup Revolution is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.
Is Makeup Revolution Vegan?
Not all of Makeup Revolution products are vegan as some contain beeswax and carmine, however, Makeup Revolution does offer some vegan makeup and skincare products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Is Makeup Revolution Sustainable?
Makeup Revolution’s headquarters is based in: UK
Makeup Revolution’s products are manufactured in: China and the UK
*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.
Makeup Revolution does not claim to be a sustainable company.
They also have over 1,000+ makeup products listed on their website with new collections and products launched weekly which encourages overconsumption. Additionally, most of their product packaging comes in plastic. Like ColourPop, I would consider Makeup Revolution to be the ‘fast fashion’ of cosmetics.
However, the packaging of their most recent collab with Jake Jamie is made with 32% recycled materials and which they claim are “fully recyclable”. I hope to see Makeup Revolution continue to use more recycled materials in their packaging as oppose to virgin plastic.
Is Makeup Revolution’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Makeup Revolution claims they use synthetic mica that is made in a lab, and therefore not associated with child labor. But if synthetic mica is not available, they claim their natural mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.
“We avoid using natural mica wherever possible in all of our products. When it is technically not possible to use synthetic mica, our suppliers are required to provide satisfactory documentation to demonstrate the mica used has been obtained from an ethical source.”
I hope this article helped you to understand Makeup Revolution’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
