It’s time for my monthly favorites again! Check out my cruelty-free January favorites to see what products I have been using and loving the most during the month of January! Since filming my 2016 Cruelty-Free Beauty Favorites, I was trying really hard to not have anything overlap. In this video, I include some cruelty-free makeup and a lot of cruelty-free skin care.
In 2013, the cruelty-free community was very sad when Stila announced that they were no longer cruelty-free and were testing on animals when required by law. Since that time, one of the most common questions I would get from readers was, “Is Stila cruelty-free?”. It’s been a few years, and now there is some really exciting news about Stila to share with you – Stila has now been added to the Cruelty-Free Brand List!
Courtney from Phyrra and I have both been talking to Stila for a while about the Stila cruelty-free status. Recently the brand was able to talk to both of us about their practices, answer a lot of questions, and provide a lot of details about their cruelty-free stance.
Is Stila cruelty-free? The answer is yes! As a brand, Stila is cruelty-free – there is no animal testing occurring anywhere. They have also withdrawn from markets that require animal testing and have updated the Stila cruelty-free policy to reflect this change.
Stila was sold in China but has completely removed themselves from the Chinese cosmetic market. This is an amazing change and I am so excited to see a brand change their policies to become cruelty-free, even if it means leaving an entire market to do so. This is something that the cruelty-free community has been asking a lot of brands to do and it’s wonderful to see a brand like Stila make that change. Thank you, Stila!!
I am working on getting a list of the vegan options from Stila, so please sit tight and I will share that when I am able to. I can’t wait to pick up some of the cruelty-free and vegan options from Stila to use on YouTube!

One of the most common requests that I receive is asking for a list of cruelty-free brands that are available at major chains like Target. With so many locations, Target is a chain that is easily accessible to a lot of people. They also carry cruelty-free brands at a variety of price points too. Because they carry such a huge variety of products, this cruelty-free list is also able to extend beyond the beauty section of the store.
This list of the cruelty-free brands at Target can help consumers make better choices when shopping here. Because Target carries such a large variety of items, this list extends beyond beauty products. It also includes cruelty-free brands that sell household items, such as cruelty-free cleaning supplies.
One of the most talked about cruelty-free eyeshadow palettes of 2016 was the Master Palette by Mario from Anastasia Beverly Hills. While this palette was cruelty-free, it wasn’t vegan and was also limited edition. I saw this palette all over and loved the looks I saw created with it. Because of this, I set out to find cruelty-free and vegan Makeup Geek dupes for this palette. It took some time, but what I put together was about as close as I think I will get.
In this video, I share an eye look I created with my cruelty-free and vegan Makeup Geek dupes for the Master Palette by Mario as well as swatches of all the potential Makeup Geek dupes that I found.
