Are The Kat Von D Makeup Brushes Vegan? Here's What We Know — PHOTOS

Kat Von D Beauty is a cruelty-free brand, proudly noting its status as "100%" on its official Instagram bio. Cruelty-free doesn't always mean vegan, though, as indicted by Kylie Lip Kits, which are cruelty-free and almost totally vegan, save for one shade. The celeb tattooist and makeupista confirmed that she is launching a collection of Kat Von D Beauty makeup brushes via a personal Insta post, revealing that she four makeup brushes are "coming soon." The aesthetic of the brushes is killer and falls in line with the brand's all-black look — the stiletto-like handles are major and the black and white ombre hairs look really freakin' cool. The brushes are designed for face products: blush, concealer, foundation, and powder. But are they vegan?

The Kat Von D Beauty brushes are indeed vegan, according to the hashtag in the caption that accompanied her IG post. Any makeup junkie fully understands that you can buy the most expensive, luxe products on the market, but they are worthless if you don't have the right tools with which to apply them. You can feel good about using Kat Von D Beauty's forthcoming brushes because nothing about them is animal-derived.

Have a look at these weapon-like "makeup wands." Those handles, though!

Kat Von D only confirmed that the brushes are "coming soon." She did not reveal the exact on-sale date yet and is keeping devotees of her brand guessing. We can only assume that the first brush collection will include these four tools. Will it include more, like shadow and crease brushes? Or is that further down the road? We shall see.

The addition of a range of beautiful brushes follows the KVD x beautyblender pairing, which boasts her high-performance Lock-It Foundation and a black version of the iconic, egg-shaped makeup sponge. It is quite obvious that Kat Von D's makeup brand is a serious player in this world. It stands out because it has such a statement, rock x goth look. But the quality is also there.
