From Urban Decay To Kat Von D: These Vegan Makeup Brands Are Legit Amazing

Intro Deck: 

Vegan makeup has always been on our beauty lust list. Amazing quality, super impressive variety and cruelty free? We've rounded up the best vegan beauty buys you'll love...

The argument for using vegan beauty products is compelling: not only do they contain no animal products, making them suitable for vegans and those who wish to avoid using animal byproducts, but they also cut out all scope for animal testing. 

Does the animal testing thing sound like it shouldn’t be happening anymore in your reckoning? Think again: animal testing is, unfortunately, still rife, with every brand selling into China being beholden to their laws that insist on any products manufactured outside of China to be tested on animals. With it being such a big marketplace, many brands wishing to cash in on retailing in China outsource testing to hang onto their ‘anti animal-testing’ label. 

It’s a minefield, with brands purposefully obfuscating details to avoid upsetting those for whom animal testing is a big no-no. If concerned, getting your hands on a vegan product is the way forward. We’ve put a bunch through their paces so that you can rest assured in the knowledge that no bunnies were hurt in your quest for bigger lashes - and that you won’t have to compromise an inch on performance…

Top 5 Vegan Make-Up Brands To Know:

1). Hourglass. This cult US brand offer vegan-friendly formulas that perform outstandingly. The powders are especially brilliant.

2. Kat Von D. Need make-up that performs seriously well and never budges? Go for Kat's stuff - it does precisely what it says on the tube and really sticks around.

3. Urban Decay. You'll find Urban Decay make-up in every pro kit because they do colours so very well. We'd recommend investing in one of their eyeshadow palettes.

4. Tarte. Like your make-up to treat your skin while it's also lighting up your features? Tarte is for you; the vegan brand always include skincare in the mix so that your foundation keeps your skin healthy while unifying.
