9 Animal Friendly Makeup Products for You to Enjoy ...


Part of taking an ethical approach to our furry friends involves using animal friendly makeup products.

Unfortunately, many smaller brands hide the names of bigger brands, and it is those bigger brands that conduct the animal testing.

Organisations like PETA are a great source of information on animal friendly makeup products.

Here are nine to get you started!

1. Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation

Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation

If you want your foundation to be animal friendly, you need to shell out a little.

Cover FX is PETA approved.

It comes in quite a broad range of shades, which makes it one of the more versatile animal friendly makeup products.

As it is water-based, it is great for oily skin!

That is one of my biggest personal challenges: steering clear of overly oily foundations!

2. Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

I LOVE Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer!

It has a peppermint tingle and comes in a few different colours.2

My personal favourite is champagne.

This lip shimmer is perfect when the cold weather kicks in.

My lips chap horrifically in response to central heating, so having something to soothe them is super handy.

3. Cheeky Cosmetics Smoky Eye Kit

Cheeky Cosmetics Smoky Eye Kit

Smoky eyes without animal testing, how great is that?

Cheeky Cosmetics produce animal friendly products in general, but their handmade smoky eye kit makes for a great present.

One of the major benefits is that it is made from light minerals.

This means they won’t clog too heavily in the creases of your eyelids.

The smoky eye kit comes with four different shades, which work together perfectly to create the right look.

4. Dermalogica Microfoliant

Dermalogica Microfoliant

I always feel slightly astounded when I learn about what Dermalogica’s products are made with.

This ‘Microfoliant’ is rice-based.

There are no artificial colourings or fragrances, making it kind to your skin.

You only need to use the tiniest amount of this exfoliant.

So even though it is a little on the expensive side, it’ll last for a little while.

This is also, apparently, a great product for makeup removal!
