Urban Decay Vegan Products List

Urban Decay Vegan Products List

Looking to find out what Urban Decay vegan products are out there? Urban Decay is well known as a cruelty-free brand, but there has long been confusion about their vegan options. It’s usually a surprise to people when they realize how many Urban Decay vegan products there are. From primers and setting sprays to foundations and concealers, even color correctors, bronzers, and blushes. Urban Decay has so many vegan options available!

In an effort to make things easier for everyone I wanted to create this list of all of the Urban Decay vegan products. It includes a wide variety of cosmetics, brushes, and even some accessories too.

Some of the best-selling Urban Decay vegan products are:

This is the most recent update of a post originally published on Logical Harmony on January 16, 2018.

Is Urban Decay Cruelty-Free? Yes! Urban Decay is cruelty-free!

Urban Decay is cruelty-free. They do not test on animals at any point, nor do they hire any 3rd parties to test on animals on their behalf.

They are owned by L’Oreal. L’Oreal is not cruelty-free. I think everyone should decide for themselves how they feel about parent companies who test on animals. Supporting any cruelty-free brand is better than purchasing products from a brand that tests on animals.

Are all Urban Decay Products vegan? No.

Not all Urban Decay products are vegan, but there are lots of Urban Decay vegan products. You can find a full list or Urban Decay vegan products below. This list is kept as up-to-date as possible but please double check ingredients before purchasing as sometimes formulations do change.

The following Urban Decay products are NOT vegan but are often mistaken as being vegan: Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Naked Palette, Naked 2 Palette, Naked Basics Palette, Naked Basics 2 Palette.

The Urban Decay vegan products are:

Because there are so many vegan options, I wanted to split up the Urban Decay vegan makeup options by product type. This way you can shop for exactly what you want.

    Thank you for this. I was not aware, as I always thought that Urban Decay are a vegan brand. <3

      Hi! Unfortunately it is not.

    […] Decay (list of Urban Decay vegan products) – It should be noted that they are cruelty-free, but their parent company is […]

    Thanks for putting this list together! Just wondering why the Hi-Fi lip gloss is listed here when the Urban Decay website states that it contains carmine?

    • Reply Tashina Combs Friday - May 10, 2019 at 8:31 am

      Hi! On the website, carmine is listed under +/- (may or may not contain) because not all shades are vegan. This lets them use one ingredient list for all the shades, vegan or not. But the shades listed here are confirmed vegan by the brand and do not contain carmine.

      • Reply Leigh Friday - May 10, 2019 at 1:15 pm

        It says “CONTAINS CARMINE” at the end of the ingredients, so I’m confused.

        • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - May 12, 2019 at 10:55 am

          I agree that it’s confusing how it’s mentioned, but carmine is listed under +/-. I think it was an oversight to include “contains carmine” as well. I’ve talked to the brand about this and some shades do contain carmine but some are also vegan and do not. Their in-store displays also note these shades as vegan as well.

    Hi, does the vice lipstick section include all of their current ranges, for example the ‘comfort matte’ shades,

    Thanks xx

    • Reply Tashina Combs Saturday - February 23, 2019 at 1:39 pm

      Hi Poppy! It’s as updated as I am able to get. Sometimes it takes a bit for new shades/ranges to be confirmed by the brand.

  • Reply Melody Tuesday - November 6, 2018 at 3:36 am

    I am confused. Years ago I started buying Shame (cream), and then it was noted as vegan on their website. This was pre-Vice-era, they were still called Revolution Lipsticks. I have repurchased this shade several times and it is my favorite lipstick of all time. I see it is not on your list – and it is not noted as vegan on their website. But I’ve now checked the ingredients several times and there is nothing I can find in them that isn’t vegan. I do also use their Eyebrow Tamer, which is also not noted as vegan on their website, but it also doesn’t contain anything animal-derived that I can discern. I have the habit of reading ingredient lists on packaging before I buy instead of checking for lists, because so many companies don’t give them anyway. Is Urban Decay just sloppy with this or am I reading wrong?

    • Reply Tashina Combs Monday - December 17, 2018 at 1:27 pm

      Hi Melody! Both products contain some ingredients that could be from animals or from plants/synthetic. It’s possible that Urban Decay is sourcing these from animals or just not consistently from plants or a synthetic source.

    Do you happen to know if the new Hex Remedy 24/7 Travel Eye Pencil set is vegan? I know they’re reformulating a lot of their 24/7 liners, but can’t find any info on the holiday release… 🙂

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

      I’ll update the list once I find out. I sure hope so!

  • Reply Tia Wednesday - September 19, 2018 at 2:15 pm

    Thank you so much for this it is so helpful! I was reading the ingredients for the Naked basics, ultimate basics, and Naked2 basics palettes and the list says may contain carmine, I asked one of the customer service representatives and they said it was because they are manufactured on the same equipment as shadows that have carmine. So, would these be vegan shadows? Or are there other things in these shadows that would not make them vegan? Thank you!

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - May 12, 2019 at 10:56 am

      Hi! From my talks with the brand, shades in all of these palettes contain carmine so the palettes are not vegan.

  • Reply Cathrine Monday - April 2, 2018 at 5:28 am

    What’s with the “travel size” listings? (e.g. with the setting sprays) Isn’t the full size product the exact same in larger quantity?
    *feeling confused*


    • Reply Tashina Combs Thursday - June 28, 2018 at 10:51 am

      It is. Just giving an option for those who may be looking for travel sizes. 🙂

  • Reply Caroline Friday - November 17, 2017 at 3:57 am

    Great list!
    Why is the Original eyeshadow primer not vegan? I remember that I googled this a few months back before I bought it, I don’t think it was your website though. It’s getting empty so I am buying a new eyeshadow primer soon but wanted to update my facts before doing anything. According to UD website, the Original one contains Synthetic Beeswax. Is this why it is not included in your list? Because the Anti-Aging one contains the same ingredient. Looking forward to your reply 🙂

    • Reply Tashina Combs Friday - November 17, 2017 at 9:15 am


      The original formula isn’t listed because Urban Decay says that it’s not vegan. I know that it was vegan years ago but they reformulated and it was no longer vegan afterward. I’m not sure which ingredient makes it not vegan, but that would be a great question for their team.

  • Reply Ani Sunday - October 15, 2017 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you for this list! I just want to double check but are none of the other lipstick or liquid lipsticks vegan-friendly? I was really surprised that I did not find many lip options for this brand when they have an amazing selection… sigh…

    • Reply Tashina Combs Friday - January 26, 2018 at 4:34 pm

      There are a few vegan lip options!

    Just wanted to know how recent this vegan list is. As I’ve looked on the uk French and USA website and all say different things as to what is and isn’t vegan. I’ve emailed the company to ask. Many thanks zombina

    • Reply Tashina Combs Friday - January 26, 2018 at 4:33 pm

      I keep it up to date and check often for changes with Urban Decay. 🙂

  • Reply nadiah Friday - August 18, 2017 at 5:25 am

    Thanks for this! Can you do this for Stila and other brands too? Thank you so much!

    • Reply Tashina Combs Friday - August 18, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      Stila is still researching what products of theirs may be vegan, but I have lots of these guides published already for other brands. If you search “vegan products” in the search box they should come up. 🙂
