Cosmetic industries are shifting toward animal-free products! The brand, Lush, has been making animal and eco-friendly innovations for some time now. They’ve financially rewarded innovators taking a stand against animal testing with a “Lush Prize.” They’ve also launched a “Be Cruelty Free” shampoo bar to spark conversations about animal testing. They’ve even funded a project to protect the endangered pangolins. They also sell fresh, handmade, “naked” products which are free of plastic packaging and better for the environment, and a few months ago they launched 40 cruelty-free lipstick shades! Now, their latest product launch includes cruelty-free makeup brushes!

Lush says their new makeup brushes are completely vegan and cruelty-free! The brush collection includes eleven different brushes made from recyclable aluminum, biodegradable, sustainably sourced wood, and vegan glue. Lush makeup artist Megan Edwards said, “We tried and tested an array of different brushes and synthetic fibres until we had a perfect collection. We’re confident the range of brushes will deliver professional results. They’re easy to use and they have a luxurious, premium feel.”


The brushes included are Fresh Faced (a flat foundation brush), Glow to Town (highlighter application), Hey Big Blender, Wing it, To The Point, Pucker, U-N-I Brow, Get in There, and Cheek to Cheek. Lush already makes animal-friendly products, but hopefully they will still inspire other popular brands and companies to launch animal-free makeup brushes and products!

Crista says, “I have found that the brushes are incredibly soft yet don’t shed which is rare for cheaper brushes. Very little fallout of product for powder based product. So far, I’ve found that these brushes work for the application of everything but eyebrows. They aren’t great for liquid but they do work. Powder (pressed or loose) and cream based product seem to work best. Overall, I’d say that these are great brushes at a fabulous price.”
