The Best Cruelty-Free False Lashes You’ll Feel Good About Wearing
The desire for full, fluttery lashes is one reason mascara has been so popular for decades. But, for anyone who wants an even bigger boost to their natural look, picking up a strip of false eyelashes is the next quickest way to amp up the drama.
Of course, with that decision then comes a consideration for what exactly is going on your eyes, and many people are now opting for synthetic, cruelty-free choices when it comes to falsies. In fact, even Sephora recently announced they'll only restock these types of lashes moving forward — and several also happen to be vegan or latex-free for sensitive skin.
Now just 'cause they're fake doesn't mean they can't look like your natural lashes, or rival extensions' fullness as you wish. Whether you're just getting started or could teach a masterclass, here are the best cruelty-free false eyelashes from Sephora to try out next.
Huda Beauty Faux Mink Lash Collection
The Huda Beauty Faux Mink Lash Collection ($23) may seem like mink at first glance (and touch), but this cruelty-free option is 100 percent synthetic. Made of luxe mellow fibers that mimic the look of fur, the lashes themselves boast three layers for naturally fluffy dimension.
Velour Lashes Effortless Kit - No Trim No Measure Natural Lash Kit
This top-rated Velour Lashes Effortless Kit - No Trim No Measure Natural Lash Kit ($29) makes a great starter set as it comes with an applicator tool and glue all packed inside. There's also no trimming or measuring needed for the lashes themselves — crisscrossed, slightly flared, and made of synthetic silk.
Sephora Collection Luxe Silk False Lash
Each Sephora Collection Luxe Silk False Lash ($20) is made from lightweight, synthetic hair fibers. They're meant to subtly increase fullness, volume, and length, and an anti-stick band means that you can wear them again and again without the adhesive getting dingy or losing its stick altogether.
House of Lashes x Sephora Collection Lashes
The collaboration House of Lashes x Sephora Collection Lashes ($15) are handcrafted, synthetic fiber options in a range of densities to add a hint of fullness or really amp up volume as desired.
Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes
There are seven total options of these synthetic Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes ($20) adding light-to-high volume to your natural lashes, no mascara required. Plus, each pair can be worn up to 15 times so you can truly get your money's worth.
Velour Lashes Eyeshape Lash Kit
The unique thing about this Velour Lashes Eyeshape Lash Kit ($45) is that each includes options for day and night, all to match your own eye shape (from monolid to hooded). One pair is more natural while the other is virtually 3D, but both are made of cruelty-free, synthetic silk.
House of Lashes x Sephora Collection Multidimensional Prism Lashes
Each one of the House of Lashes x Sephora Collection Multidimensional Prism Lashes ($15) are named for a different crystal including amethyst, rose quartz, and lapis. They're all made of synthetic fiber blends with several boasting layers of lashes for even more dimension and density.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Cruelty-Free Lashes
All eight styles of these Tarte Tarteist Pro Cruelty-Free Lashes ($12) are vegan, ranging from the natural "GTL" (go-to-lashes) to several options brining bigger, bolder drama. Plus, each set attaches to your lids with a cotton strip making them a good choice for anyone with latex allergies, too.
Huda Beauty Easy Lash Collection
Both styles in this Huda Beauty Easy Lash Collection ($18) keep in mind anyone who's just getting into the faux-lash game, or may still be intimidated by the process. While they add both volume and dimension on their own, that effect can be kicked up with a sweep of mascara when you're done.
Velour Lashes Silk Lash Collection
The options in this Velour Lashes Silk Lash Collection ($26) can be worn up to 20 times as their ultra-thin, flexible cotton-thread band is easy to clean and reapply. Made of synthetic silk fibers, these add a (big or small) dose of volume to your natural lash lines.
Huda Beauty Jacqueline Classic False Lashes
These top-rated Huda Beauty Jacqueline Classic False Lashes ($19) were created alongside Bollywood actress, Jacqueline Fernandez, who wanted something flirty, dramatic, and soft. That effect is achieved thanks to crisscrossed synthetic fibers that look like they've been curled to perfection.
Museum of Ice Cream x Sephora Collection Rainbow Sherbet Lash
No rainbow-toned animals were harmed in the making of these Museum of Ice Cream x Sephora Collection Rainbow Sherbet Lash ($7, originally $18). Inspired by shades of sherbet, this set adds a fluttery boost of color to any look.
Huda Beauty Lottie Classic False Lashes
The Huda Beauty Lottie Classic False Lashes ($24) were the first in Huda Beauty's silk collection. This particular style brings dramatic softness and was created with (and named for) social media influencer, Lottie Tomlinson.
Velour Lashes The #LOTD Collection – Premium Synthetic Lashes
Velour Lashes The #LOTD Collection – Premium Synthetic Lashes ($15) come in natural, medium, and dramatic densities, and have a thin lash strip that can be easier to apply for first timers. Plus, they're 100 percent cruelty free, vegan, and gluten-free as well.
