Top 5 Halal Makeup Brands You Can Buy in Malaysia

04 October 2017 | Febriana Ramadhanya

A halal makeup brand should be more than just being made without haram substances. The production of the makeup products need to follow what is considered to be lawful in Islam meaning that no living being were unjustly harmed in the process of the production.

You may think that all cosmetic brands in Malaysia holds a halal certification due to its halal ingredients and cruelty-free status but that’s not always the case. Big brands like MAC, L’Oréal, Estee Lauder, and Nars actually test on animals in order to fulfill some regulatory rules for selling their products.

Aside from that, the ingredients used to make the makeup products need to be harmless and sourced from natural materials. Again, the ingredients should not be sourced from animals as the collection process could bring them harm. Nonetheless, worry not because we’ve gathered 5 halal makeup brands that are completely vegan and cruelty-free. We’ve omitted big cruelty-free brands like Urban Decay, Tarte, and Too Faced as their parent company still perform tests on animals.

Kat von D

We know this cruelty-free American brand as one of the pioneers of liquid matte lipsticks. Thankfully, all shades of their matte liquid lipsticks are vegan, as well as their other top-selling items like the Ink Liner, Lock-It Foundation, and Tattoo Brow. They are currently working on revamping their formulas to make all of their products vegan.

theBalm

theBalm mixes a retro aesthetic with cheeky puns for their product names but the most important thing about this halal makeup brand is that they don’t test on animals and uses a vegan formula for most of their projects. Their most popular items, including the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter, Bahama Mama bronzers, and Nude Tude eyeshadow palette, are currently vegan.

Wet N Wild

It’s nice to know that there are affordable drug-store brands out there that are cruelty-free and vegan. A lot of beauty enthusiasts use Wet N Wild products as dupes for more expensive and non-vegan brands. For example, the MegaLast Lip Color carries similar colors as MAC lipsticks like the Bare It All that can pass as MAC’s Velvet Teddy lipstick.

Cover FX

This Canadian makeup brand is cruelty-free and 100% vegan. Their best-selling products are their Natural Finish Foundation, Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment, and the Perfect Setting Powder. We can’t forget about the Custom Enhancer Drops, the holy grail illuminating and bronzing drop to make your skin look radiant and fresh.

ColourPop

ColourPop is everyone’s favorite affordable cruelty-free makeup brand. All of their products, including their iconic matte liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes, are vegan. The best thing about this halal makeup brand is perhaps their ridiculously affordable price tags, especially when compared to other cruelty-free brands. With just the products from this brand alone, you can achieve various makeup looks like the “no-makeup” look and the Instagram baddie look.
