Vegan & Cruelty-Free Liquid Eyeliner
Animal products (like gelatin, collagen, lanolin, and many others) are found in all types of makeup to give it the right smell, consistency, and color. And if that’s not bad enough, these products are often tested on animals before being sold in stores.
This list of cruelty-free and vegan liquid eyeliner brands will help you find an ethical, plant-based eyeliner pen. You can be sure that any of the brands in this list do not contain any animal products and are never tested on animals!
To help you decide which vegan eyeliner pen is best for you, I’ll list some important things about each brand, including price range, available colors, if the brand is waterproof, and where you can purchase the eyeliner.
As with all cosmetics, ingredients can always change. I will keep this list as up-to-date as possible, but be sure that the brand you choose still says vegan and cruelty-free when you purchase it.
