Drugstore Cruelty Free Makeup Kit

I try out a lot of makeup that never makes it on to the blog. I get emails, private messages and comments on posts about my favorite mascara, or deodorant… you name it. And while 15 Minute Beauty isn’t a cruelty free blog, I also get asked about my favorite cruelty free beauty brands, and in particular lately I’ve been asked about my favorite drugstore cruelty free makeup.

I thought it would be fun to go through an entire makeup kit’s worth of makeup, and tell you my favorite cruelty free products. (I’ve tried to pick pregnancy safe products as well.) Some of my favorite cruelty free makeup brands include CoverGirl, ELF, Wet’n’Wild, Physician’s Formula, Pixi Beauty and NYX.

For reference, I use the list of cruelty free beauty brands from My Beauty Bunny as my ultimate CF or not CF list. It’s somehow always controversial whether a brand is (or isn’t) CF, and I trust Jen to sort through information for me! In addition to My Beauty Bunny, I also love both Phyrra and Logical Harmony as well for their Cruelty Free content.

    I've heard a lot of people mention that they love Nutty and I should try that eyeshadow single. I've never tried the WnW singles.

    I don't have a huge collection of Wet n' Wild but front & center is Nutty. I'm glad to know they are CF. Next time I'm at Walmart I'll look for Take It Off. I always need eye makeup remover.
