Cruelty Free & Vegan Dupes for MAC Favourites

If you’ve been interested in makeup for any amount of time, you will of probably heard of MAC. Despite the fact that they advertise themselves as Cruelty Free, they are indeed not. If you want the full low down on why MAC isn’t cruelty free then I recommend you read you this informative article by Logical Harmony.


Even though MAC may not be talked about as much in the online beauty community, I still feel that their products are still loved and coveted by many. Maybe its their wide product catalogue, diverse shade range or focus on artistry? But that doesn’t mean they can’t be matched.

When I first started watching beauty videos MAC was mentioned as much as Morphe is now. So, a lot. Some of these products are advertised by MAC as ‘Bestsellers’ and others are ones I personally used and loved, back in the day. Each dupe is comparable in formula, purpose and/or shade.


Any brand marked with a ‘*‘ is Cruelty Free but their parent company is not.
