Changing Up to Cruelty-Free and Vegan Make-up

Although make-up is not in my routine much, I have been making effort (on a good day...usually not so, but more so than in the past) to go beyond lip gloss and lipstick in my routine with a little mineral make-up, mascara, and blush.  I have to admit, I like make-up.  It intrigues me even though I have no concept in application.  So loving make-up, I am usually looking up make-up products existing and new, but what is tough is after you find something you like...things may change and it is no longer 100% vegan.  Case in point, companies like Mac Cosmetics and Urban Decay recently made the decision to sell their products in China, in which possibly may require animal testing.  Bummer!

I have worked on transitioning out make-up that aren't vegan, but I admit that products I have like Mac, Urban Decay, etc. will be in my make-up bag for quite some time, as it will take a while to use up and I honestly feel it is wasteful to throw away, especially since I do not have the luxury to do so.



Anyhow the main purpose of this post is to direct you to a site that I like to use as reference when buying make-up.  The site is called Cruelty Free Face and it is run by Melisser Elliott.  I think it is absolutely awesome that this site is available, as it helps with the research.  Yes, there may be other companies that are cruelty-free and carry vegan make-up that aren't listed, but it's a start...be thankful! :)

There is also Leaping Bunny that lists companies that do or do not test, but keep in mind it is only a source of cruelty-free.  Cruelty-free doesn't always mean vegan, so be sure to reach out to the companies regarding their products.  I, for one, usually reach out to the companies to see if 1) they test on animals and 2) if their make-up is vegan, and if not all, which ones are.

Happy beautifying your beautiful self! ♥

NEWS UPDATE 7/6/12 (from Urban Decay): We have decided NOT to start selling Urban Decay products in China. For more information, please visit urbandecay.com/animaltestingpolicypolicy.
