Shopping for makeup can be an all-day event! There are so many make-up brands on the market that finding ethically-sourced products can be overwhelming. The market has become oversaturated with celebrity products, making it hard to know which ones are worth your money. Luckily, some of these celebrity companies simply stand above the rest.
Here are the top five celebrity-owned cruelty-free and vegan beauty brands.
Fenty by Rihanna
Price Range: $10-$150
Fenty Beauty was launched at Sephora in 2017. The line immediately received traction because of its wide-inclusivity across genders and skin tones. Their Pro Filt'r foundation launched with 40 shades and has since expanded to 50 unique skin tone matches. The brand is 100% cruelty-free, never testing their products or ingredients on animals. Not only that, but they will also not accept ingredients from suppliers that test their products on animals. Some of their products are vegan, including their famed foundation, though not all. The company provides a full list of vegan products on their website.
KKW by Kim K
Price Range: ~$20-$120
Launched in 2017, Kim K made millions within minutes of her beauty brand's launch. The brand is cruelty-free and offers a vast array of products, making it easy to find what you are looking for. KKW collaborates with other celebrities and releases limited products, so you won't have to walk around looking like everyone else. While the brand might seem expensive, the uniqueness of the makeup makes this brand worth it.
Price Range: $7-$150
Kylie Cosmetics, formerly known as Kylie's Lip Kits, was launched in 2015 by cosmetics billionaire Kylie Jenner. Kylie Cosmetics is entirely cruelty-free and some of their products are vegan. They do not sell anything in the line in Mainland China, either, so as to guarantee their products are never tested on animals. The wide range of products offered by Kylie Cosmetics makes it one of the most well-known and coveted makeup brands of 2019.
Flower Beauty by Drew Barrymore
Price Range $7-$20
Flower Beauty was launched in 2018 by Drew Barrymore. The line believes that all women deserve the best quality make-up for the most affordable price possible. As such, their line rarely features products over $20. The line is available on their website and, also, at Ulta Beauty. Barrymore makes sure that all of these products are cruelty-free while still allowing them to retain their affordable price.
Honest Beauty by Jessica Alba
Price Range: $4-$30
Honest Beauty is one of the most accessible brands on this list. Not only can you access the brand on their website, but you are also able to get the products at Target. The price point of this brand is another selling point, allowing it to be purchased by even those with a low makeup budget. The brand was meant to enhance one's natural beauty rather than cover up your natural skin tone. They also produce a skin line. The products are largely vegan, but all of them are cruelty-free and not sold in countries where this testing is required.
Bonus: Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga
Price Range: The full price range is unknown, but the pre-orderable products appear to be between $25 and $50.
Haus Laboratories was founded as part of the endeavors of Haus of Gaga by Lady Gaga. The entire line boasts its products as fully vegan and is filled with vibrant colors to compliment all skin tones and emotions. Gaga has collaborated with Amazon to retail her products and make them available to a wider customer base, but also has the products for sale on the Haus Labs site. The reaction to the new line has been incredibly positive and, with the accessibility of the products, it is sure to be a vegan line to watch.
