In case you missed it, Zara is now doing beauty too – but is it clean?
Zara Beauty was launched in early 2021 and it’s slowly becoming an insider favourite. If you’ve seen the products, you’ll understand why.
The brand was created with British make up artist Diane Kendal at the helm of product development. She’s known for working on campaigns for various luxury brands, including Gucci and Dior, and has also painted the faces of some of the world’s biggest models, such as Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber.
If that hasn’t convinced you to give the beauty line a shot, you might change your mind after learning that its products’ packaging was designed by legendary French director Fabien Baron. The white packaging is not only sleek — it’s also refillable and recyclable.
Should you add the lipsticks, nail polish and eye products from the beauty range to your routine? Here are more details about the brand that just might convince you.

Is Zara make up cruelty-free?
If you’re like me and prioritise cruelty-free beauty (check out my list of 11 brands that don’t test on animals while you’re here), you’re probably wondering how Zara fares in this area.
The Spanish retailer says it doesn’t test on animals in any step of the production of its products.
However, the claim has not been vetted or verified by a third-party organisation. I’m taking the brand’s word for it, but I’m also keeping an eye out on when it will be certified.
Is Zara Beauty vegan?
If you’ve been wondering if the brand’s vegan on top of being cruelty-free, you’ll be delighted to learn that it is!
All of the brand’s products are vegan and are said to be formulated with nothing but ‘clean’ ingredients.
