Target has made it so easy for compassionate customers to find vegan and animal test–free makeup in stores and online. The next time you’re in the Target makeup aisle (because is it even really a trip to Target if you don’t end up with a basket full of beauty products?), you’ll see some wellness icons on the shelves. (They’re online, too.) This labeling system makes it easy to find cruelty-free products—just look for the letter “V” on products that are vegan (i.e., contain no animal-derived ingredients) and look for the pink bunny logo on items that are animal test–free (i.e., weren’t tested on animals). Target uses PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies list to ensure that products are made without being tested on animals. In addition, the green “Clean” icon will help you spot items made without chemicals that you may not want in your beauty and personal-care products.
As if we needed another reason to head to our local “Targé,” check out some of our favorite vegan makeup products from PETA-certified, cruelty-free brands.
Here are our top 12 picks for cruelty-free makeup products that you can buy at Target:
