Barry M is a low-to-mid range beauty brand, most often known for their amazing range of cruelty free nail polishes. They also do a great range of cruelty free makeup and – my favourite – cruelty free biodegradable body glitter.

Do Barry M Have Vegan Products?
It’s super easy to shop vegan with Barry M online; there’s a tab on their homepage that takes you straight to their range of vegan products, which are each marked with this symbol:

They Might be Cruelty Free, but are Barry M a Sustainable Brand?
Although Barry M don’t seem to be doing much about their plastic packaging, they do have a range of cruelty free makeup that supports the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF). At least 20% of the profits from these items go to the DSWF. Each cruelty free palette is inspired by an animal, and profits from each palette support the feature animal.
