some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

7 of the best cruelty-free and vegan eyeliners

Let’s be real, we’re all still probably buying the same eyeliner brand we’ve bought as a teenager because once we find one that works.. we hold onto it for LIFE!

But sadly, brands like L’Oreal, Stila, Rimmel, Benefit, MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Maybelline continue to test on animals, and some cruelty-free brands that don’t test on animals will use animal-derived ingredients like Stearic Acid, Beeswax, and even Carmine to make their eyeliners!

The struggle is real when it comes to letting go of our beloved eyeliner that we’ve been using for years and wanting to find a cruelty-free and vegan eyeliner replacement! To ease the pain, I’ve compiled a list of the best cruelty-free and vegan eyeliners!

Vegan Eyeliners

Kat Von D's - Vegan Eyeliner

Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner ($20)

Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner is the most popular choice for both vegans and non-vegans alike! Many beauty gurus swear by this brush-tip liquid liner to perfecting their crisp, smooth wings! The brush-tip is very easy to use and you can create just about any look with Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner! (Waterproof)

Where to buy: Online, Amazon, Sephora

100% Pure's Black tea vegan liquid eyeliner

100% Pure’s Black Tea Long Last Liquid Eye Liner ($29)

100% Pure’s Black Tea Liquid Eye Liner is a favorite amongst natural and green beauty bloggers and for good reasons because this natural liquid eye liner 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 stuff is set.. it doesn’t smudge and will last all day long! (Water-resistant)

Where to buy: Online, Amazon

Jordana vegan fabu liner

Jordana’s FabuLiner Liquid Eyeliner ($2.99)

Who says cruelty-free and vegan makeup always has to be expensive? Jordana’s FabuLiner Liquid Eyeliner is a great drugstore option! This felt-tip liquid eyeliner can do it all, create thin or thick lines perfect for any occasion!

Where to buy: Beauty Bay, Amazon, Walgreens

elf vegan cream eyeliner

E.L.F’s Cream Eyeliner ($3)

Another amazing cruelty-free and vegan drugstore option, ELF’s Cream Eyeliner glides on smoothly to create some of the smoothest and defined lines! It also comes with a slanted eyeliner brush but I personally prefer using a pointed eyeliner brush with this cream eyeliner instead. (Water-resistant)

Where to buy: Online, Amazon, iHerb, Ulta, Well.ca

zuzu luxe vegan liquid eyeliner

Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner ($15.60)

Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner features a fine calligraphy tip and is the top recommended non-toxic, natural eyeliner, especially recommended for those who have sensitive eyes! (Water-resistant)

Where to buy: Online, Amazon, Whole Foods Market, Target, Well.ca,

milani vegan liquid-eye eyeliner pencil

Milani’s Liquid-Like Eyeliner Pencil ($7.99)

(DISCONTINUED) Milani’s Liquid-Like Eyeliner Pencil is great for tightlining or for people who want a hassle-free eyeliner! This eyeliner pencil is called “Liquid-Like” because of its gel-based formula that is extremely creamy and easy to work with!

illamasqua vegan precision gel eyeliner

Illamasqua’s Precision Gel Eyeliner ($28)

Want a smooth, rich black liner to help create some of your most dramatic looks? Try Illamasqua’s Precision Gel Eyeliner, this long-lasting formula won’t smudge and it’s super easy to apply! (Water-resistant)

Where to buy: Online, Amazon, ASOS

    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!

      Try Honeybee Gardens eyeliners !
