Is Charlotte Tilbury Cruelty-Free And Vegan?

Charlotte Tilbury is a much loved and used brand in the world of makeup, so for those looking to switch up their routines with new products, we’ve got the full lowdown on whether the iconic brand is cruelty-free and vegan. 

About Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury launched the makeup brand in 2013 and has since turned it into a globally recognised and beloved brand by professional makeup artists and enthusiasts alike. With a wide range of high quality products, from skincare essentials to eyes, lips and face favourites, it has been established as a key makeup brand in the fashion and beauty industry.

Is Charlotte Tilbury Vegan?

Charlotte Tilbury is not 100% vegan, however it does have an edit including many products that contain a completely vegan formula.

Is Charlotte Tilbury cruelty-free?

This is currently unclear at the time of writing. This is because, while it was generally believed to be cruelty-free as they did not sell in countries where animal testing is required by law, Charlotte Tilbury appeared to be giving samples in China (a country that requires animal-testing) last year in a pop-up through another retailer. This was made possible due to a loophole where products could be bought in the store but through online means, so it would be shipped to the customer. This cross-border way of shopping meant that Charlotte Tilbury could bypass having to test the products on animals. 

This was a grey area as should any customer ask for it to be tested, Charlotte Tilbury may legally be liable to do this. As a result, it remains somewhat unclear if Charlotte Tilbury is actually cruelty-free; although the pop-ups have now stopped, many websites such as Ethical Elephant and Cruelty-Free Kitty appear to also be uncertain at this time.
