Sephora, vegan makeup in Singapore

I’m sure this is a topic that would interest many people, not just vegans.

As ladies, we would love to use products that are animal-friendly, ie, not tested on animals.

Most of the time, when we hear “against animal testing”, naturally, we think of a certain company, X here in Singapore.

However, I would like to think about this below….

If a company X is owned by a parent company that does testing on animals… Does take make company X 100% cruelty-free?

(I personally believe that even though no animal testing occurs at any phase of its product development, what about the raw ingredients used in the product development?)

Also, do take note that for any companies to have a presence in the China market, they MUST be tested on animals due to animal testing regulations in the country.

Below is a reply from Sephora to my query regarding vegan products available in their stores:

(An animal-ingredient free brand. However, they may use beeswax in certain products like their Clear Complexion Mask with Botanical Blast.
Kate Sommerville
(with the exception of her Goat Milk line)

(Most of their items tagged with “no animal ingredients” however the brand is not listed as vegan as their Lip Conditioner contains beeswax)

Urban Decay 

According these brands, their products are vegan.  Please review the ingredient list and verify as formulas can change and feel free to contact the brand directly for specific ingredient questions

Having said that, if you have any questions regarding products listed above, please contact the brands directly as they may reformulate products and change manufacturers

Hope this helps! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the share Kat! Good to hear that E.L.F. Cosmetics won the Best Vegan Cosmetics Company about 6 months back.

      While I understand E.L.F. Cosmetics are cheaper, as far as I know they do not have a physical store present in Singapore. A search on their website using “vegan” gives only 12 products:, all of which are brushes. Most of us prefer to try out the brushes first before buying them, so it would be good to have a physical presence, yeah? Perhaps Sephora can consider having E.L.F. brushes available. 😉
