Sad news, gal pals. My longtime favorite makeup brand NARS has officially come out saying they will start selling to China which requires animal testing. I was so sad (especially because I just got a new foundation and tinted moisturizer from them- damn it!!!!) that a brand who has been a longtime advocate of anti-animal testing decided selling out and expanding their brand was more important than keeping their customers who love them for being cruelty free. So when one company turns their back, I always try and find a new one.
Because I constantly get DMs about my makeup and the brands I use, I am always trying to update y'all on what I am using. One thing you can guarantee is that it will ALWAYS be cruelty free. As a pet owner, I can't bear the thought of somebody poking, prodding, and causing DELIBERATE damage to her little body. Did you know that animal testing facilities will expose animals to radiation, surgically remove animals organs to purposefully cause harm, and inject/force feed them harmful chemicals and substances? THAT IS MAJORLY FUCKED UP, YOU GUYS. When there are so many high profile brands that don't animal test, why would you ever choose the ones that do?
Because I know so many of you will ask, "But if they are not tested on animals, how do we know the products are safe or healthy to use?!" The answers are simple: cell cultures, volunteers, computer models, and more. No, makeup and medical companies aren't kidnapping people and exposing them to the same crazy shit that they do to animals. These have actually proven to be far more accurate superior than any animal test. For more information, visit www.crueltyfreeinternational.org.
ANYWAYS... Since NARS decided to go rogue on us, I did a little Ulta haul. Here are my makeup picks:
I absolutely have been a major fan of TooFaced for a longtime which has become my new number one. They make the creamiest lipsticks, skin-like foundations, and fab palettes. I also love Becca for their incredible highlight palettes, and elf for their high quality products at amazing prices. Shop my new picks below:
