I've always been a meat eater, and I can't see that changing anytime soon. Trust me, I've tried to convert my diet by watching those videos being shared out on Facebook, which puts me off for about 2 hours but as soon as I see something as simple as chicken nuggets, the video would be wiped from my brain (until I see it pop up again...)
However, I'm sure we can all agree that animal testing isn't that fun. In most cases, the animals are suffering long after being tested on which obviously isn't too pleasant to see or think about. So I decided to visit a blog which has studied most makeup brands and listed all brands which don't test on animals. So how cruelty-free is my makeup collection?
Now, I've already purchased all these products and I feel like the ones which DO test on animals shouldn't be put to waste. To separate each product and to know which brands I shouldn't be buying in future, I've stuck white labels on the products which do test to remind me for future reference.
A key trend with the products that do test on animals are mostly lipsticks in my collection, surprisingly most of my brushes are cruelty-free which did surprise me!
Other brands which were in my collection were as follows:
Barry M - DO NOT TEST
Benefit - DO TEST
Bourjois Paris - DO TEST
MAC - DO TEST
Maybelline - DO TEST
No. 7 - UNKNOWN (Google claims that they DO NOT test on animals)
Seventeen - DO TEST (which makes me sad because their mascaras work wonders on my lashes!)
W7 - DO NOT TEST
To find out how cruelty free your makeup bag is - you can click through to this handy website Logical Harmony: www.logicalharmony.net/cruelty-free-vegan-brand-list/ which lists all brands that don't test on animals. If your chosen brand doesn't show up it means that they do test on animals.
