People like to say, “beauty is pain.” But does it have to be? As more cities, states, and countries work to ban the sale of animal-tested cosmetics — like New York and Hawaii, for example — vegan products are becoming increasingly popular and accessible. But the beauty market can be hard to navigate as labeling is often not as clear as it could be.
Target is often hailed as one of people’s favorite places to shop. Therefore, we created a list of some of the best vegan makeup products (no animal parts and no animal testing) you can find there.
