5 Affordable Makeup Brands That Are 100% Vegan

By Autumn Banks

If you follow beauty news you'll know that NARS, one of the best and most affordable makeup brands out there, decided that they were going to extend their business to China. While that's great for beauty lovers in China it isn't so great for the animals or the company's image either. All beauty brands that choose to sell their products in China must forfeit their claim to be cruelty free. This means NARS will be using animals to test their products in China.

You might be asking well it's not happening here why should I care. If that's the case you really need to reevaluate your life choices because we're talking about thousands of animals to deal with harmful chemicals that could kill them.

Despite the fact that NARS has received some serious negative backlash from their decision they are still considering going through with expanding their product line to China. If you love both beauty and animals and are deciding to switch makeup brands, but don't want to lose the affordable prices NARS has to offer, than take a look at this list of beauty brands that are cruelty-free:

Kat Von D Beauty

How can you do a list of vegan makeup brands without mentioning Kat Von D? She's a huge supporter of cruelty-free beauty products. While her beauty line is a little bit expensive at times she makes up for in quality. I personally own her EverLasting Liquid Lipsticks in Lolita and Damned and let me tell you those two products alone are heaven sent I can't imagine what the rest of her line is like. While not all of her products are cruelty free at the moment she is working on getting her entire line to be 100% vegan. She also has a section (#VEGANALERT) in her online store that lists all of the products that are currently cruelty-free.
