As an animal lover and vegetarian (trying to be mainly vegan), I am passionate about working with brands that uphold the same values and morals I have. This means over the last year I have completely overhauled my entire makeup kit to ensure I use products that are clearly animal cruelty free!*
It may come as a big surprise to a lot of makeup wearers that your well-known brands such as Estée Lauder, MAC, Clinique, Bonni Brown, Benefit and all the luxury brands like Chanel, Armani, Nars, Dior and Lancome etc all use animal testing on their products.
It is a confusing area as many brands, including those mentioned above are sold in china where animal testing is mandatory by law for foreign cosmetics. Which means by default they test their products on animals. So it’s extra important to read the fine print on all of your makeup as many will claim to be cruelty-free but then include a clause about “except when required by law”.
If they are sold in stores in China, this clause then means that they are not a cruelty-free brand.
Worrying? Yes, but luckily, we have options. I have done a lot of thorough research so that if this is a concern for you then you can be confident that my kit is cruelty free.
Here is a preview of the products found in my cruelty free makeup kit, I have listed my favourite products to help you on your journey when buying high performance, cruelty free products.
