VEGGIE/VEGAN friendly make-up available ONLINE.

And so here we are once more...
I recently re-wrote and updated the guide to veggie/vegan make-up available on the high street, so thought I'd best do the same with the online guide. I was originally going to do one big post for both, but it was going to be MASSIVE and would've been a slog for anyone reading it....which I suppose is a good thing, the more the better, right!

As with the high street guide I have tried to avoid putting companies owned by a parent company that do test on animals, feel free to let me know if one has slipped in there. And again in most cases this is because the parent company sells on mainland China where animal testing of products is obligatory (this only affects the mainland, Hong Kong does not come under this law). Only products SOLD in Chinese stores there, a company can sell to Chinese consumers via their website and remain cruelty free. Products made in China for sale elsewhere are not effected by this law, so don't worry if you see 'made in China' or 'made in P.R.C'.

As usual I have alphabetised the list to make it easier to skim through and of course I have included links. It's split in companies that have a UK distributor and those who ship internationally to the UK from their website. 
It's a much expanded list since last time, so buckle up!

Online cosmetic companies from UK sites

100% Pure (UK site) - Natural skincare company offering fruit pigmented cosmetics! Items are marked vegetarian or vegan on their individual listing on their site.

Anastasia Beverly Hills (UK site) - This indie brand became huge thanks to their brow pomades and grew even bigger with their eyeshadow pallets (not veggie though, sorry). They are cruelty free, but there are whispers that they're getting ready to sell to a larger company, so hopefully they stay that way. 
As well as their UK site they also sell trough Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay and IntuVegan Vagabond has the most up to date list of vegan products I could find, see it HERE.

Arbonne Cosmetics (click UK on upload) - Arbonne are a company specialising in botanically based cosmetics and toiletries and nutrition.

Beauty Bakerie - Peta certified brand that offer products in adorable bakery inspired packaging. My friend Rach says they have the best liquid lipsticks she's ever tried, & she is the authority on these things as far as I'm concerned!

BH Cosmetics - US based cosmetics company that offer budget friendly high performance make-up...& they do all kinds of crazy sales! Their vegan products are marked as such on their individual listings on their website. They ship internationally from their site, UK stockists are a bit pricier and don't do the sales that their own site do, so you could be cheaper ordering direct.

Dermacol (UK site) - Dermacol is a professional make-up brand who started in the Czech Republic creating products for theatre and film. They gained a lot of attention recently for their full coverage foundation (but I think it works well as a mixing medium). Ira Vampira has a list of their NON-VEGAN products (list products under the non-vegan ingredient).

Each product is marked as vegan in it's individual listing.

So whats changed since the list was last written?

Well first off the lis is soooo much bigger, which is fantastic. There's some real variety in there from budget to luxury, indie to big brands and plenty of UK stockists. I'll keep going in to do check ups and put last updated at the top of the page, hopefully it keeps getting bigger.
Brands we've lost? Well, Tarte was on there before, but I now know that they are predominately owned by Japanese company Kose who are animal testers (they own Rimmel amongst many others), so I took them out this time. Also Paula's Choice are gone as they seem to have changed their mind about some of their products being vegan and state on their site that they make no vegan claims. So not too bad, all in all....

Handy sites

Logical Harmony - This site is a really great resource and it's founder Tashina Combs updates it weekly! They have all kinds of useful information ranging from product reviews to a detailing typical animal derived ingredients. They have a complied a list of cruelty free companies that have vegan options. Every company on the list has been contacted directly by Logical Harmony. 
See their list  here.

My Beauty Bunny - this is a fantastic blog, absolutely bursting with information. Def worth a follow....even has a phone app! 

Cruelty Free Kitty - Another info powerhouse filled with cruelty free info, reviews and shopping directories.

Its worth noting that often, when looking online, when a company has a UK site that the lists of vegan/veggie suitability can actually be found on their .com or US sites. It's always worth having a look.
