Cruelty Free Makeup at Superdrug with BONUS Checklist
After my last post on why cruelty free makeup saves you money, I realised that when we actually go shopping in a specific store, it can be hard to know which brands are cruelty free and which are not.
After all, you don’t want to be checking brands every few minutes if the mobile reception is a bit dodgy!
To help both you AND me out, I thought I would create a list of the cruelty free makeup at Superdrug here in the UK so that you can shop with ease.
I’ll also make a list of the brands that are NOT cruelty free so you can be wary next time you shop.
I’m only focusing on cruelty free makeup at Superdrug at this point, I’ll be doing separate posts on Makeup Brushes, False Eyelashes and Nail Products later, and I hope to branch out to skincare at some point.
CRUELTY FREE MAKEUP AT SUPERDRUG
Who’s old enough to remember the glittery eyeshadow pots of Barry M and the colourful nail varnishes?
Well good news guys, Barry M is cruelty free!
STAR PRODUCTS: How could I not recommend the eyeshadow glitters? I’ve heard good things about the lip kits as well and the nail varnishes.
B. Superdrug is it’s own brand and is cruelty free.
I’ve never tried anything from them, so I can’t comment on what the products are like.
Made for women of colour, I’ve never seen this in the shops so far, but the products look really good.
CAKE Cosmetics is cruelty free.
Years ago, when Collection was named Collection 2000, this the brand all my pocket money went on! It was affordable and had a heap of colours.
Some of the products in Collection are vegetarian and some are vegan-friendly. They have a whole list on their website.
STAR PRODUCTS: I was a huge fan of the concealers and powders from them!
I loved ELF Cosmetics and was so sad when they stopped selling in the UK, but now they’re back and being sold in Superdrug!
PLUS they’re cruelty free
STAR PRODUCTS: The ELF Makeup brushes are affordable and so long lasting! I had some for a good few years before they gave up the ghost.
GOSH is not only cruelty free but a lot of their products are even Vegan!
I haven’t personally tried anything from the brand, but with limited options, I may now do so!
Another of Tam Beauty’s brands, I Heart Revolution is cruelty free.
STAR PRODUCTS: I’ve heard good things about the Blushing Hearts highlighters.
Lottie London is a cruelty free brand with affordable brush sets, body art and makeup.
STAR PRODUCTS: When I first trained as a makeup artist, I did my training from Harrow College on a short course, and I remember the girls on the course recommending the MUA Highlighters as they were so affordable.
The cheapest products start at £1 so these are perfect for those on a budget.
Revolution has certainly changed the affordable makeup landscape with a bang!
Unlike the MUA brand, they actually have a tab on their own website which highlights their Vegan products!
This is Revolution’s Professional range for aspiring makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts.
It has literally everything an up and coming or established makeup artist needs to include in their professional makeup kit without breaking the bank!

I have a special bonus for you because let’s be honest, you’re not going to remember, so I’ve created a special checklist for you to print out and take with you when you go shopping for cruelty free makeup at Superdrug, or you know to save it on your phone.
