Vegan Makeup at Sephora (No Parent Company Testing)

This post may contain affiliate links.

I recently got a gift card to Sephora but since deciding to go cruelty-free and vegan with my makeup and skincare back in 2012, I haven’t set foot in a Sephora store in forever.

Sephora is Not a Cruelty-Free Brand

The reason being is that the Sephora house brand isn’t cruelty-free as they have a number of stores in mainland China where animal testing is required by Chinese laws, so I never felt like it was right to buy anything, even if it was cruelty-free/vegan, from Sephora as I felt my money would be indirectly funding more animal tests done by the Sephora house brand.

Since receiving my Sephora gift card, I wanted to do a little research to see if maybe I can find some makeup products that were from brands that do not test on animals and that were also vegan and do not contain animal ingredients.

To narrow down my search even further, I also wanted to avoid cruelty-free brands with a parent company that continues to test on animals such as Urban Decay (owned by L’Oreal); Too Faced (owned by Estee Lauder); NARS + Bare Minerals (owned by Shiseido).

Cruelty-Free and Vegan Makeup at Sephora

To my pleasant surprise, Sephora has a small (but growing) selection of vegan makeup products with no parent company testing!

I’ve decided to publish this list of vegan makeup brands at Sephora with the hopes that it’ll help some of you find and shop for both cruelty-free and vegan makeup at Sephora!

PLEASE NOTE: On June 19, 2017, Unilever announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Hourglass. Hourglass will soon be owned by Unilever, a corporation that continues to test on animals; Unilever is not a cruelty-free company and at this time, Hourglass is considered cruelty-free but will soon be owned by a parent company that test on animals.

Shopping at Sephora for Vegan Makeup

2018 Update! I’m happy to report due to the growing options for cruelty-free and vegan makeup options at Sephora, this list has expanded immensely so I have created separate product guides for each category. Click on the image to be redirected to the NEW and UPDATED product guides!

All of the makeup products mentioned are cruelty-free, vegan, and are from brands that are not owned by a parent company that tests on animals.

    Thank you so much for this list. It’s just what I’ve been looking for. It seems every vegan brand I use gets bought up. It’s so frustrating trying to find an independent company. Although Sephora has a list of individual vegan products, they don’t take into account the parent company.

    Pretty Vulgar, Stellar, and Milk Makeup are 100% vegan brands carried at Sephora (: However, the hourglass blushes are not vegan they have carmine in them which is beetles. Milk has great stick blushes but the only powder vegan blushes carried at the store are by stellar

    • Vicky Ly
      July 14, 2017

      I’m still waiting to hear back from Pretty Vulgar about their animal testing policy,
      I’ll definitely reach out to Stellar to verify their animal testing policy,
      and I’m still waiting to hear back from Milk Makeup about whether their raw material suppliers test on animals!

      On Hourglass’ website, they list 3 of their blush as being vegan — diffused heat, luminous flush, incandescent electra which you can find here >> https://www.hourglasscosmetics.com/vegan-makeup
      Unfortunately they don’t list their ingredients online so it’s difficult to confirm whether carmine is in these 3 blushes that they are claiming to be “vegan” Hmm.. I’ll look into this! That’ll be a shame if they do contain carmine =( Thanks for letting me know!!

      • Alysa
        July 15, 2017

        Awesome, I’ve trained with the brands and they all told me they were cruelty free and 100% vegan so hopefully it’s true and I’ve read the ingredients on all the blushes and they all do contain carmine ):

        • Heather
          October 16, 2019

          Oh my! I have just read about carmine and that is horrific!

        Hi, thanks for this information … about carmin there is a synthetique one isn’t it? (That’s what i found in a site of cosmetic’s ingredients)

    LOve love love. A list like this was hard to find, and I really wanted to avoid brands that had a parent company doing animal testing. I will be sharing this with all my friends. these are all great brands, there’s no reason to need anything else to get a fab makeup look.

    • Vicky Ly
      June 16, 2017

      I totally agree! There’s plenty of cruelty-free brands available now that there’s really no reason why we should be supporting or condoning beauty brands who are choosing to continue to test on animals! Glad this list was helpful to you, I only feature cruelty-free brands on my blog that don’t have a parent company that tests on animals so feel free to browse my other shopping guides to help ya out! =) thanks for being a voice for the voiceless, Lydia!!

    You forgot to include tarte. They are known to be cruelty free and vegan.

    • Molly
      April 30, 2017

      I thought the company that owns Tarte is based in Asia and owns other non-cruelty free cosmetic brands?

      • Vicky Ly
        May 3, 2017

        Yes, that’s right! Tarte is owned by Kose.

        Kose is NOT a cruelty-free brand. They also own several cosmetic brands that sell in mainland China and therefore are not cruelty-free.

        Although Tarte is a cruelty-free brand and they do NOT test their products or ingredients on animals… this post excludes brands that are owned by a parent company, like Kose, that tests on animals =)

    SO helpful, thank you! I’ve been loving the RMS Beauty Un Cover Up Concealer but I want to find a vegan alternative and the Anastasia Beverly Hills one sounds perfect! X

    This is SO ideal, I’ll keep this in mind!!
