Target is making it so much easier for compassionate customers to find vegan and cruelty-free makeup in stores and online. The next time you find yourself 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 might see some Wellness Icons on the shelves. (They’re online, too.) This new labeling system makes it easy to find compassionate products—just look for the letter “V” on products that are vegan (i.e., contain no animal-derived ingredients) and cross-check them with PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies list to make sure that the company is cruelty-free (i.e., doesn’t test on animals). 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:

1. Quiet and Roar Lavender + Spirulina Body Wash

This cosmically soothing body wash will set the tone for your beauty routine. It’s free from phthalates, dyes, and parabens—and best of all, it’s never tested on animals. Find it in four other scents, including Peach + Green Tea, Lemon Blossom + Mint, Pineapple + Kiwi, and Coconut + Banana Milk.

2. NYX Professional Makeup Fill & Fluff Eyebrow Pomade Pencil

This brow pencil from NYX comes with the tiniest little blender brush so that you can be confident that your brows will be streak-free.
