Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒป What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

List of the Best Vegan Eyeliners in 2019

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

There’s a long list of things we expect an eyeliner to do for us: it’s gotta be long-lasting, no smudging, tugging, creasing, easy to use, waterproof, smooth and precise application, and comes in all different colors. In addition, if you’re also a conscious consumer, you gotta throw cruelty-free and no animal ingredients on the list as well.

And when most drugstore and popular makeup brands like L’Oreal, Rimmel, Benefit, MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Maybelline are unfortunately not cruelty-free in 2019, it makes finding a cruelty-free eyeliner so much more difficult!

Even if the brand is cruelty-free, some eyeliners contain animal-derived ingredients like Stearic Acid, Beeswax, and even Carmine.

Don’t fret, my friends! With this list of the best cruelty-free and vegan eyeliners, there’s no need to panic or wing it at the store. I’ve got you covered, whether you’re looking to either replace an existing non-vegan eyeliner or you’re just on the look-out for a new liner to try out, there’s an option for you here!

None of these eyeliners are from brands that test on animals, however some of them are owned by a parent corporation that does test on animals. If you choose to avoid these brands as well, just look for the * next to the brand name.

Vegan Eyeliners

Kat Von D – Tattoo Vegan Liner

Tattoo Liner by Kat Von D ($20) – This vegan eyeliner by Kat Von D is one of the most popular choices for both vegans and non-vegans. “Itโ€™s the uncontested holy grail of liquid eyeliner to create any look imaginable on every eye shape, including the iconic cat eye and more. The key is the ultra-precise brush tip for super-easy application and ultimate precision, making Kat Von D Tattoo Liner the perfect tool for everyone, from makeup beginners to pros.”

Available in two colors: Black and Brown.

Get it online at katvondbeauty.com, Sephora, Amazon.

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Vegan Eye Pencil

24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil by Urban Decay* ($22) – “This is not your average eyeliner. Creamy, forever-lasting, award-winning and waterproof, 24/7 pencils delight you with lush tropical hues, deep metallics, and unusually vibrant neutrals. The best Eyeliner Pencil ever, ever, ever!” Available in 40+ colors and finishes.

Get it online at Sephora or Ulta.

*It should be noted that Urban Decay is owned by L’Oreal, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals when required by law.

NYX Epic Ink Vegan Liner

Epic Ink Liner by NYX* ($6.30) – This is a great affordable, drugstore vegan eyeliner! Available in black and brown. “Featuring a slender and supple brush tip, this intensely pigmented, waterproof pen lets you achieve black liquid lines effortlessly.

Get it at your local drugstore or online on Amazon and Ulta.

*It should be noted that Too Faced is owned by Estee Lauder, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals when required by law.

100% Pure – Long Last Liquid Vegan Eyeliner

Long Last Liquid Eye Liner by 100% Pure ($30) is a favorite amongst natural and green beauty bloggers and for good reasons, because this natural liquid vegan eyeliner is pigmented from crushed, micronized black tea leaves instead of harsh synthetic dyes! Careful though, this liner is quite “wet” and takes a little longer to dry but once this it’s set.. it doesn’t smudge and will last all day long!

Available in 3 colors: Black Tea, Blackberry, and Dark Chocolate.

Get it online at 100percentpure.com, Amazon, Petit Vour, Well.ca

ColourPop BFF Liquid Vegan Liner

BFF Liquid Liner by ColourPop ($8) – If you’re looking for a vegan eyeliner that is under $10 with lots of color options, then this one is your next BFF (hence the name!). Available in 8 colors. A precision felt tip liquid eyeliner pen that is easy to use with its flexible tip that glides on smoothly with intense pigmentation in one swipe without skipping or tugging.

Get it online at Ulta.

Zuzu Luxe Liquid Vegan Eyeliner

Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner ($15) – Featuring a fine calligraphy tip, Zuzu Luxe’s quick-drying, vegan liquid eyeliner has a water-resistant, gluten-free formula that delivers ultimate precision to line, shape and define your eyes. Available in 7 colors.

Get it online at Amazon or Well.ca

Hourglass – 1.5MM Mechanical Vegan Gel Eye Liner

1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner by Hourglass* ($18) – “The unique, creamy formula delivers the intensity and staying power of a traditional gel liner, in a precise and easy-to-use pencil. Encapsulated in a 1.5MM mechanical pencil, this liner offers precision accuracy and ease of application. Its formula and delivery are best for tightlining between lashes.

Get it online at hourglasscosmetics.com or Sephora.

*It should be noted that Hourglass is owned by Unilever, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals when required by law.

    The elf eyeliner is not waterproof despite the label. Cried today and it came right off. Disappointed.

    I’ve just started working on my switch to vegan makeup and found your website/instagram – thank you for following your passion and for existing. This article is EXACTLY how I feel and what I was looking for! I have been hooked on the Revlon dark brown liquid pot liner since I discovered it in middle school. It took me this long to dump it and realize that it wasn’t vegan or cruelty-free ?

    P.s. I love your site name. I am a HUGE lover of elephants – if you couldn’t already gather that from my handle name lol

    I favor cobalt blue and deep purple eyeliners but they give me pink eye. The gels glide on and are
    waterproof but only come in black and brown.
    My eyes are hazel. I want them to pop!

    Just like Potato, I prefer eyeliner pencil and those vegan pencil I tried seem too soft and hard to sharp them.

    Would be great if you could make a list of best vegan eyeliners that are also pencil and come in different colours because I’m not looking for a black liquid eyeliner. Thank you!
