More than ever, compassionate companies are choosing to make their products without testing on animals. And we love them for it! For people looking to cut all animal-derived items out of their life, vegan cosmetics are the way to go. But it can be a bit confusing. Don't worry, though—we're here to guide you. Cruelty-free means that the product was developed without any animal tests, while vegan means that in addition to never being tested on animals, the product does not include any animal-derived ingredients.

To make shopping for vegan products even easier, many of our favorite cruelty-free brands label which of their products are vegan on their websites.

1. Milani

Whether you're looking for eyeliner, lipstick or blush, Milani's vegan products have got you covered for a flawlessly vegan face.

2. Too Faced

From "teddy bear hair" brushes to Born This Way Foundation, a list of exclusively vegan products can be found on Too Faced's FAQ page.

3. Tarte

With a great selection of must-have products (think primer and gloss), plus a wide variety of brushes and beauty blenders, the vegan makeup from Tarte will make your vegan heart skip a beat.

4. Urban Decay

5. wet n wild

6. Lush

On the forefront of the fight against animal testing, Lush makes vegans feel right at home. All products free of animal ingredients are clearly labeled and the company's compassionate team members are always happy to help you find the perfect vegan bath bomb, balm or lotion.

Supporting these brands helps animals. By purchasing vegan cosmetics from these cruelty-free companies, you're showing them that there is a demand for these types of products. Hopefully, they'll all join the ranks of all-vegan makeup brands like Pacifica, Arbonne and NCLA. Until then, vote with your dollars and choose vegan.
