The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free False Lashes

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free False Lashes

Finding cruelty-free false lashes is now easier than ever! There are so many brands out there that offer cruelty-free false lashes that aren’t made at the expense of our furry friends. So many false lashes out there are made from animal hair. A lot of false lashes are from mink fur but they can come from other animal fur or silk too. Thankfully, lots of brands out there offer cruelty-free lashes that are made from synthetics or real human hair. There are even faux mink and faux silk lashes now.

It can be hard to navigate which lashes are cruelty-free. Hopefully, this cruelty-free shopping guide will help you find the best cruelty-free false lashes for you!

Popular cruelty-free false lashes:

This is the most recent update of a post I originally published on April 30, 2012. It was last updated on January 3, 2020.

The following brands are all cruelty-free and offer cruelty-free false lashes. While they are cruelty-free, some of these brands do offer false lashes or other products that are not vegan, so be sure to read ingredients before purchasing. Brands that are 100% vegan are noted.

Cruelty-Free False Lashes:

If a brand does not test on animals but only makes lashes from silk or animal hair (such as mink lashes), they are not listed here. With so many cruelty-free false lashes available that are not sourced from animals, I would prefer to encourage people to buy those options. When buying cruelty-free false lashes, it’s very important to be sure that you can figure out what the lashes are made from. A lot of brands market real silk false lashes as being vegan, but I do not consider them to be vegan.

Do you wear false lashes? What brand makes your favorite cruelty-free false lashes?

    Just an FYI, the link for Ulta Collection eyelashes links me to all of the Ulta listings for Benefit Cosmetics lashes. I just wanted to let you know so hopefully you can fix it and no one will accidentally buy from Benefit thinking that they are cruelty free.

      Oh no! Thank you for letting me know! Fixing it now.

    I would like to know if those Brands sell on China… It’ s very important because if your claiming to be Cruelty- Free on countries that you should be but, after that, you sell on other Countries like China to have this golous Market where tested is an obligation for foreings’ Firms, yoy are really NOT CRUELTY- FREE!!!

    • Reply Tashina Combs Monday - October 29, 2018 at 1:30 pm

      No. None of these brands are sold in China or take any actions that would make them not cruelty-free.

    Love this post! Very informative and eye-opening for many consumers trying to switch to an ethically conscious and cruelty-free lifestyle. False lashes are usually not the first beauty product that comes to mind when we hear cruelty-free, but they are such an essential product for so many! Thanks for shedding light on this important topic x

    Hey Tashina! 🙂
    Have you tried the Social Eyes Lashes (owned by karissa pukas & her brother) ?

    They are amazing cruelty free and vegan lashes! They even have their Mink style lashes which are 100% Vegan 🙂

    Has there been any contact with Kiss Lashes? I’ve been buying them under the impression that they were cruelty-free but since they’re not listed here I’m wondering if I need to switch brands.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - February 26, 2017 at 7:03 pm

      Hi Lacie,

      I’ve reached out to them a few times without response, so I’m not sure if they are cruelty-free or not.

      • Reply Stephanie Monday - June 5, 2017 at 10:21 am

        I reached out to them recently and just got a generic reply that they don’t test on animals, but they didn’t mention ingredients or whether or not they sell where testing is required by law. I’m going to reach out again to see if they’ll clarify.

    I recently bought lashes from eco tools but felt like they didn’t really stick on very well, i tried the glue they came with as well as duo and by the end of the night they were already sticking out from the ends 🙁

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - October 18, 2015 at 11:06 pm

      It may help to apply extra glue on the ends of the lashes. Since the ends are often the trickiest, some extra glue there can really help.

    • Reply Colin Thursday - April 20, 2017 at 10:37 am

      Sometimes it can help to bend and flex the band inward to break them in before wearing as well!

  • Reply Vonnie Monday - July 7, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Is the glue for the eyelashes vegan too?

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - July 13, 2014 at 7:20 am

      Hi Vonnie,

      It is! I wouldn’t include any brand where the glue was not vegan.

  • Reply Lorie Tuesday - March 11, 2014 at 1:46 am


    I’m in love with Amazing Shine eyelashes, I was just wondering if you could extend your AMAZINGLY FANTASTIC research into them, I know the lashes are human hair, but don’t know about the glues.

    Thankyou so very much for keeping us updated. 🙂 xxx Amazing work xxx

      Hi Lorie,

      Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely look into them! 🙂

    Urban Decay isn’t cruelty free! It’s owned by L’oreal which tests on animals. Many companies that claim to be cruelty-free are owned by “parent companies” that test on animals.

    • Reply Tashina Wednesday - October 23, 2013 at 5:41 pm

      Hi Meems!

      At the time this post was published, L’Oreal had not yet bought Urban Decay. I’m going to edit to the post to add a note that their parent company tests on animals.

    • Reply Mary Friday - April 3, 2015 at 6:48 am

      Urban Decay themselves are cruelty free. Some people choose to support cruelty free brands regardless of their parent companies. It’s up to the individual to decide what they are comfortable supporting.

      • Reply Kristina Manaigre Tuesday - August 25, 2015 at 7:01 am

        In a way it makes sense to support the brand that isn’t cruelty free to show the parent company that they can be successful without the cruelty of testing on animals. I can see both sides.
