Milani Cosmetics is Cruelty-Free, Not All Vegan
When I first started doing research on what drugstore makeup brands were vegan, tons of blogs said that Milani was a 100% vegan makeup line. After buying a few products and being extremely happy with them, I decided that I wanted to feature their products on Logical Harmony. With each brand that I want to feature, I’m sending the company an e-mail asking them to clarify if they use animal testing at any point in the process as well as if they use any animal ingredients or by-products. I want my readers to be getting verified information that I know is correct.
While I’m happy that their reply e-mail cleared things up, it also made me so sad to have been misinformed by so many websites.
Milani’s manufacturers do not perform any animal testing; however, we are not a vegan line of cosmetics. Some of our products contain carmine, lanolin, etc.
Thank you for contacting us!
I had already informed several people that Milani was a 100% vegan cosmetic line. Now I know that it’s a company that is safe to buy from so long as myself and other vegans read the ingredients first. If you are looking for a great line of affordable cruelty-free makeup, definitely check out Milani!
I’m thankful that Milani has such a wonderful customer support team that was able to clear this issue up for me! I’ve also learned the importance of trying to get information directly from the company first.
In the last week I’ve heard that Milani (and Jordanna through extension) are no longer cruelty free. Any idea? I really hope it’s not true!
Sadly, it’s true that they have changed their stance. 🙁 You can read more here – Milani and Jordana Are No Longer Cruelty Free.
DANGIT I just bought some last night! after much deliberation at the store. ugh. why would they do that?
I saw Youtuber BeautyTalkWithCin say in her latest video that Milani was not cruelty free that a viewer had emailed her a response that she had got from the company saying that they’re not. I emailed today myself asking for their policy to find out.

You have got to be careful with all products when vegan. It is dissaointing though that you ahd to e-mail them to find out.
I love Milani Cosmetics. I use their blush in ‘Luminous’. Which is supposed to be a dupe for Nars “Orgasm”. (Iv never used the Nars one though so I can’t really verify).. and I used to have an eyeshadow called ‘Java Bean’ which is frickin gorgeous.
I’ve never used their blush, but I love a few of their lipstick shades. I just wish that it was easier to find out what’s vegan and what’s not.
