Cruelty-free And Vegan Eyeshadow Palettes

If your New Year’s resolution was to go vegan via Veganuary or move towards a more cruelty-free and vegan makeup kit, this blog post is here to help! If you’ve already checked my blog post on vegan and cruelty-free foundations, you may be ready to pick your favourite cruelty-free and vegan eyeshadow palettes.

Luckily there are myriad options to choose from and it brings me so much joy that the world has come a long way in making products more ethical and cruelty-free.


NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette

This palette is a good staple for some everyday use. It has a wide array of neutral tones to suit most skin tones.

Beauty Bay Nude Matte 9 Colour Palette

I love this palette – it does what it says on the tin. The staying power is pretty decent for the price and the colour payoff is pretty good too!

Revolution Beauty Super Spice eyeshadow palette

I really like Revolution. They’re again, budget-friendly and the have a lot of dupes of higher-end products, without the cruelty.


Fenty beauty snapshadows mix and match

Gotta love a bit of Fenty. Whenever I head to Sephora on a destination wedding, it’s the first counter I go to.

Urban Decay mini

It’s been a staple for years for a reason. A little tip – do your eyeshadow before applying foundation and concealer. This palette is good but the fallout is like no other. Get a cotton pad at the ready!


Ilia – The Necessary eyeshadow palette

This is a little on the pricier side but I do love it. I lost most of the Ilia range actually, but note, that not all of their products are vegan, so do a little research beforehand.

Delilah Colour Intense eyeshadow

I really love this palette. The staying power of the eyeshadows are great and I love the colours. I’m leaning more towards grey tones on myself and so I love all of these colours. They’re perfect on fair complexions.
