11 Cruelty-Free Local Brands For Filipinos That Love Make Up



Make up is something that has become a part of our daily lives, and honestly, we can never have too much! It’s fulfilling and satisfying to add beauty products in our stash, but as our collection gets bigger, the more we become aware of what we put on our faces.

Popular YouTubers like Isabella Fiori have also gone cruelty-free. Doesn’t it feel better knowing your purchase didn’t harm any innocent animals just to make yourself look pretty?

It’s definitely a challenge finding cruelty-free make up brands. It’s also a struggle to keep shipping internationally, that’s why we’re making it easier for you by listing down local cosmetic lines that are cruelty free!

We love Colourette for their diverse set of shades! The colors in their collection can suit every Filipina skin tone. They have eyeliners, eyebrow pencils, and powder foundations too. But our personal favorite would have to be the intense blend lip and cheek oil! It spreads so well and it turns into a matte finish.

You can bet that every product from Happy Skin has something new to bring to the table. You’ll surely get your money’s worth in their impressive and carefully made ingredients.

9. BLK

This is Anne Curtis’ own make up line and we’re obsessed with it! The red liquid and stick lipsticks remind us of Anne’s iconic pouty red lips and we can’t help but want our own! Plus, if we buy three of her lippies, we get a super cute heart-shaped mirror for free!

8. Human Nature

Human Nature is the go-to brand for all things local and organic. Aside from hair and skin products, they now have cream tints, eyeshadow, and lippies. Human Nature is the first Philippine brand to be awarded cruelty-free by PETA and they also take pride in their all-natural ingredients.

Every make-up enthusiast should also invest on good skin care products and In Her Element has a wide range of products that covers all skin types–we’re sure there’s one for you!

5. Vice Cosmetics

Vice Ganda is another personality with a make up brand that caters to everyone, regardless of age, gender, shape and class. This line has a ray of products hilariously coined in gay lingo

New in the make up industry is Paprika. We absolutely love the warm tones in their first palette. It shows up in your skin easily because it’s just that pigmented. This palette reminds us so much of Morphe, but it’s more affordable. If you’re warm-toned, this is the perfect palette for you!

2. Ellana

If you’re looking for loose powder eye shadows, kissproof liquid lipsticks, and the likes, then you’ll surely love Ellana Cosmetics. You can also try their cheek tints to achieve that natural sun-kissed blush.
