My Favorite Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands

I’ve recently started to take an interest in whether or not the makeup brands I currently use are cruelty-free. I feel that it’s extremely important that we educate ourselves on various issues/topics in our consumer based world. My two favorite websites to visit when I’m researching weather a brand is cruelty-free or not are Cruelty-Free Kitty and Logical Harmony. I like to cross-reference between these two sites!

Now, this doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop using the products that are not cruelty-free or vegan. My goal of this was just to become more aware of the products that I am using. Eventually, I might phase out the products that I have, but that could take a while. ?

I hope this post has inspired you to look at what products you’re using and to do a bit of your own investigation. Are you a fan of cruelty-free products? Let me know why in the comments below!
