I have noticed a TON of people online asking myself and others what the best cruelty-free and vegan mascara is. Everyone has such different opinions on mascara so it really depends on what kind of look you like and what your price point is. Some people like big spidery and glamorous lashes while others prefer a more natural look and natural organic ingredients. If someone is to wear mascara every day, even using lash extensions occasionally, it might be worth looking into lash serums. Xlash is just one example of a serum that encourages lashes to grow longer and be as healthy as possible. Something that might be interesting to you if you use a lot of products on your lashes.

I took to Social Media and asked a ton of my friends what their favourite cruelty-free and vegan mascaras were, and compiled the top into a list. I have included a brief description of the look you will get from each mascara as well as the price! All mascaras mentioned are 100% vegan. If you are looking for a vegan selection of eyebrow pencils have created their pick of the best. Visit 🙂

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $23

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is my favorite cruelty-free and vegan mascara by far! I prefer a more spidery and lengthy look. This mascara will give you super voluminous and glamorous lashes. If clumping drives you crazy or if you prefer a more natural look, this mascara is not for you. The waterproof version does contain beeswax, but the original is completely animal-free.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara $23
The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

This vegan mascara from Tarte adds length and volume without clumping. It gives intense length for those who love long, feathery lashes. Tartest Lash Paint is great for those want a more natural look than Better Than Sex, but still want glamourous length. It is also made out of ingredients that are safe for sensitive eyes.

Pacifica Dream Big Volumizing Mascara $16

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

This mascara has a unique adjustable brush that allows the wearer to control their length and volume. First, use the long bristle brush to lengthen and separate lashes, then give the wand a twist and the bristles shorter to build volume. This is a great option if you are looking for an all natural mascara that performs well!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes $21

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

This is another awesome vegan mascara from Tarte! This mascara is lengthening, curling and volumizing. I personally prefer this mascara over Lash Paint because I prefer volume over length and don’t mind slight clumping. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes is a great basic vegan drugstore mascara that offers many benefits.

e.l.f. Mineral Infused Mascara $3

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

This mascara is great for those who want an inexpensive vegan and cruelty-free mascara that is easy to find. It won’t give you intense length or volume, but it will give you an enhanced natural look at an awesome price! If you are a no-fuss person who just wants a decent mascara that contains no animal ingredients, this is the mascara for you.

Lily Lolo Mascara $20

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

This everyday mascara from Lily Lolo is a good choice for those wanting all natural makeup. It is made from natural, organic, vegan ingredients and even won a Green Beauty award! The formula lengthens and volumizes lashes and can create glamorous length when layered.

Pacifica’s Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mascara $14

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

Pacifica Stellar Gaze is made out of natural ingredients and includes coconut oil and vitamin B to nourish lashes. It is completely vegan and will create a very subtle look without clumps that enhances your natural eyelashes. The large brush helps define and separate each lash!

Zuzu Luxe Mascara $18

The Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Mascaras

Zuzu Luxe is a little-known brand, but I have heard multiple people rave about their mascara! Its formula lengthens, curls and adds volume. This mascara also comes in a bunch of fun colors like purple and blue! It is all natural and won’t irritate your eyes. It gives a natural look but after a few coats can add a ton of volume.
