Everything Cruelty-free for your beautiful eyes!

Yes, the eyes are the window to the soul, we all know that.  What we want to know is what are the best cruelty-free mascara brands, cruelty-free brow gels, cruelty-free eye-liner and eye-shadow have great reviews to help our eyes look amazing!

Whether you want lengthening or volumizing mascara, liquid or pencil eyeliner, creme or powder eyeshadow we’re here to help you find the best cruelty-free eye makeup available.

Ingredients will differ from company to company depending on what their ultimate goal is for their products.  As you read the reviews below you’ll see that some of the products contain added vitamins A, C and/or E.  You’ll also see extracts of Chamomile, Rosemary, Ginseng and Ginko in some of the products.  If you have sensitive eyes or skin around the eyes then the vitamins and extracts are likely of major importance to you.  If you’re like me and that’s not an issue at all then you’ve got a lot more freedom to choose!  Some are gluten-free, important for celiacs, some are Organic or GMO-free, a personal choice and some are Vegan. Don’t forget if you see “Natural”,  chances are it means very little.  It’s usually more of a marketing ploy than actually meaning anything legitimate.

If you have questions or comments please feel free to leave them for me, or email me sydney@thecrueltyfreeface.com.

Below is a sampling of the products offered by these companies. For more information on the eye makeup products available, check out the Company guide.

5* Reviews… (Gabriel) This mascara is the best ever! It is not only a TRULY natural product, but it is an amazing conditioner for the lashes. I was a DIE-HARD Full-&-Soft Maybelline mascara user, we are talking 15+ years people! I realized I just couldn’t do it anymore after reading the ingredients and researching what was listed. I found this gem at Super Supplements and HAVE NEVER looked back. I have it in brown and black. My lashes are healthy, luscious and best of all full due to the lack of breakage. WORTH every single penny. Try it and you will never go back!

(Zuzu Luxe) I spent 10 years using high-end mascara until I became allergic, switched to those other large named natural products and the same issue… this was my last ditch effort and I’m glad I did because this will forever be in my makeup bag. Not flaky, no smudge, it rains in Seattle all the time and it doesn’t stream down my face but comes off nicely with warm water. Love love love

Maracuja: Luscious, lash volumizing mascara that won’t clump or flake. Infused with maracuja oil, lash conditioning vitamins, and pigments of tea, cocoa, and coffee.

5* Reviews… (Ultra Lengthening) I purchased the 100% Pure fruit pigmented mascara in Black Tea for the first time I think in 2014? Since then it has been my go to and pretty much only mascara I use. Generally, I don’t use waterproof mascara, so it’s been perfect for me. My lashes look false when I wear it. I’ve also tried the BlackBerry (purple tint) and it was lovely, but I prefer black. HIGHLY recommend this product!! Already have sisters hooked. 10 stars!!

(Maracuja Mascara) Love this product, mainly because it contains all natural ingredients, also-bonus-it does not flake or cause “raccoon eyes”. The wand is nicely shaped and mascara is easily applied. It also separates lashes nicely.

Lash Builders/Boosters

So here’s the deal with Lash Boosters.  There are a ton on the market!  They go from high end to low end price points and everywhere in between.  I’ve got the high end and low end here.   There are more on Lash Boosters on Amazon A little tip here is to do a test to make sure you don’t have an adverse reaction to any of them.  This is really important!  What works for one will not necessarily work for another.  Make sure that it’s got a money back guarantee so if you do react you can send it back for refund.

Rodan and Fields

 Lash Boost by Rodan and Fields


Because who doesn’t want beautiful, long lashes?  I can attest that this stuff works!  A month in one of my friends asked me if I had extensions added to my lashes.  Now the downside, it can be irritating for some people!  Use it as directed for best results but I suggest taking a week to graduate into everyday if you’ve got sensitive skin.  The company says that used as directed it shouldn’t cause irritation issues.  There is a 60 day empty bottle guarantee so if you don’t like it just send it back for a full refund.  Only available in the US.

Amazon/ Physicians Formula

A combination liquid eye-liner and lash boost serum.  Over 72% of women saw improvement in lashes after 2 weeks and over 90% saw improvement in 4 weeks.  High-Tech Japanese formula is long-wearing, water-resistant and smudge-resistant.  Ultra-Precise brush-tip applicator: innovative and easy to use eye lining tool delivers effortlessly.  Hypoallergenic; fragrance-free; paraben free; Dermatologist approved; safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

5* Review: I really love this stuff. I decided to try it after watching a favourite YouTuber use it all the time. Seriously, so easy to use, lasts a long time and the colour really is ultra black. Best eyeliner I’ve ever used, on par with my Loreal liquid liner. Totally recommend. It also came in the mail pretty fast.


100% PURE

Green Tea Brow Builder                      Long Last Brows


Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder: Lightweight fibre gel defines and sculpts brows for a fuller, more polished look. Green tea leaf fibres add volume, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E strengthen.

Long Last Brows: Multi-tasking brow gel to shape, fill and set. Natural pigments of cocoa and black tea give rich, natural-looking colour. Conditions for healthier eyebrows.

5* Reviews: Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder–Medium Brown: When I wear this brow gel, I don’t pair it with any other brow product. I have naturally medium brown hair and bought this gel in Medium Brown. Here’s what I love about it: 1. It keeps my brows looking natural because it coats individual brow hairs. 2. It doesn’t smear or smudge throughout the day at all. 3. I can get the boy brow look with natural ingredients. My one complaint is that I wish it was just a tiny bit lighter for my hair colour. The gel has no golden or red tints, and it’s almost more like faded charcoal. The outside of my brows are thinner, so sometimes I just want to even out my brows, not necessarily make them darker. This gel still does well, I just have to put on a very small amount in this case.

Long Last Brows: My experience with this item has been great! A word of advice, if you have blonde hair and light skin, do not order “soft brown” as your colour. Order blonde! 🙂

5* Reviews: I purchased a pencil and this brown tint together. I use the pencil first and then this brow tint. The only complaint is that too much is on the brush when you first use it. Otherwise, I think this is a great product and works so much better than other products like this from other companies. I even like BL’s lip liner. To be honest, I like their makeup better than their nail polish.

I have hooded oily eyelids and this eyeliner stays put. The blue is a fun pop of color and I’ll use it a few times a week for an everyday casual look.

butter LONDON



Geez, I can’t decide which of the eye-liners to highlight here.  If you want sparkle, then the Glazen Lustrous Liner colours you will love. You’re a traditionalist that wants a little extra somethin’ something?  The Iconoclast Infinite Laquer Liner with it’s Hi-Shine Brilliant Black would be awesome, you can pair it with Iconoclast Mascara.  Like a matte liquid?  Try the Matte Liquid Eyeliner in 3 shades.  If you’re like me and like an easy to use pencil?  There are 9 shades to pick from! Now it’s up to you to decide…plus they’re on sale!

5* Reviews…..(Iconoclast) AMAZING This is the best eyeliner I’ve ever used. Kat Von D who? This is the darkest, most precise, and the most fluid I have ever encountered and I use makeup so much that I almost rarely have an item that will repurchase because I want to try something new. However, this is one of those rare items, and I can promise you, you will not regret this purchase.

(Eye Pencil) EASY TO USE I really like this eye pencil. It’s easy to use, stays put until I take it off, and the rich brown shade is very flattering. I’ve been avoiding pencil eyeliners in favour of gel or cake as I get older because they tend to pull at the sensitive skin around my eyes but this one is creamy and easy to use. I’ve also been able to sharpen it without loosing a lot of product which I’ve found to be a real problem with other brands. I’m very glad I gave this one a try!

The velvety, rich formula combines sea fennel extract and jojoba seed oil for a smooth, soft finish that perfectly blends for a long-lasting, classic colour.

  • The particles in Real Purity eyeshadows are never nano-sized and are covered in pycnogenol, a premiere anti-oxidant that goes one step further to protect your eyelids from harsh chemicals

5* Reviews…..I have to say that I love their eyeshadows. I would suggest for those that have only tried the mattes to go for some of the really cool shimmer ones. Some of the best are white shimmer (near the brow bone), wild iris, bright blue, olive, emerald green, dark navy, and icy rose. All of those have a beautiful shimmer to them. I work at a high-end cosmetic company, and we don’t even have colors this pretty. They also stay on a lot longer!

I have several colors in the older packaging and love them, but I really love the new packaging. Very quick and easy. It’s a little roller ball that is super easy to apply directly to the lid or on the back of the hand then use a brush. (and has the best brushes, btw.)
