I totally can relate to your angel/devil argument over the non cruelty makeup. I try to be as cruelty-free as I can be, and there are many sacrifices you have to make. But at the end of the day, its worth not supporting makeup companies which animal test. there are many good cruelty free makeup brands as well so don’t worry, your foundation can always look good. 🙂
It’s a quarter to one in the morning as I lie here, illuminated by the harsh glow of my phone, starting a blog post. Fun fact, most of my blogs are written when I can’t sleep. Might as well, huh?
What am I thinking about? Just how many of the items in my make up drawers are tested on animals, come from companies that pay for testing on animals or claim they are cruelty free but cannot be declared as completely cruelty free because they sell to the Chinese cosmetic market?
This is a topic that has been on my mind for a long time. It’s been niggling away at me. The questions. The guilt. The feeling of needing to make a change.
Up until last year maybe, I hadn’t given it much thought. I found products I wanted to try, I’d research them a bit and if my interest…

I don’t usually do post’s about beauty products but I would love to tell you all about some of my favourite products that I’ve found this year. In late 2018, I decided I needed a change, I’d been putting my money into the hands of companies that support Testing on Animals. It’s 2019, and we the world of ‘Animal lovers’ are still supporting this cruelty which is completely unnecessary, I’ve decided to put my money where my mouth was and I will no longer buy or use brands that are not ‘Cruelty-Free.’
Let’s talk for a minute about why I decided to change and then I will talk to you about the products I’ve found, tried and loved. I’ve always titled myself ‘an animal lover’ and I thought it was a bit half arsed to say you love animals but you will still wash your hair with a product that’s…

Your cons list is so good! I am against animal testing so I do not agree with the pros. There is a new alternative testing method that replaces the need of animals. It is called vitro (in glass) testing. Instead of using animals to be test subjects, human cells are being used making the testing more accurate because animals do not share many of the same diseases as humans. Animals can be reliable in some ways for animal testing, but are not always 100% reliable.
Pro. 1 : Animal testing has contributed to many life-saving cures and treatments.
Con. 1: Animal testing is cruel and inhumane.
Pro. 2: Helps ensure safety of drugs:
Con. 2: Some substances tested, may never be used for anything useful:
Pro. 3: Humans and animals are almost identical in many ways.
Con. 3: Success in animal experimentation does not equate to human safety.
Pro. 4: It provides an ethical alternative solution to testing.
Con. 4: It uses animals that are not protected by the Animal Welfare Act (AWA).
Pro. 5: Animals themselves benefit from the results of animal testing.
Con. 6: Alternative testing methods now exist that can replace the need for animals.
Pro. 7: Allow researchers to study a test subject for a whole life span.
Con. 7: Medical breakthroughs need not involve animals.

I am so happy you are trying out cruelty free makeup!
Hey guys, welcome to my blog. Today’s post is a full face first impressions of affordable cruelty free makeup I purchased from Priceline the other day. I got so excited at all the new makeup and sales on the other day, I went a bit crazy, and bought enough makeup to do a full face of new makeup. I hope you enjoy and fingers crossed some of this makeup ends up in a favourites!
I started with the Nude by Nature Flawless Liquid Foundation in N2 Classic Beige. Not going to lie – first impressions – no bueno. I applied 2 pumps with a buffing brush and it just looked streaky and sat on my skin. It didn’t blend very well and emphasised texture on my skin I didn’t know I had. However, I did a sneaky second impression with 1 pump and a sponge and it looked a lot…
