Announcement time: I'm going cruelty free with my makeup this year! Over the last couple of months, transitioning to a mostly vegan/vegetarian lifestyle I've also become increasingly uncomfortable with the use of animal testing in makeup. It's a difficult and somewhat controversial topic to broach, so I'd love to hear all of your opinions on the matter but morally I can't justify the torture of animals for our own aesthetic purposes despite my current stance of supporting it medically.
As of late, I've changed my attitude to shopping in general anyway, cutting down the amount that I buy and seeking quality rather than quantity, so I'm hoping that this will make it easier to go the whole way. I love budget beauty, and going cruelty-free will wipe out a whole load of options for me, but I'm excited to discover new ones and share them with you all. If I do occasionally make a mistake (I'm only human after all!), please do tell me but know that it wasn't intentional and don't be a dick!
I'm aware that you may be concerned about how the content on here will change, and happily for you, it won't. I don't want to appear preachy, so won't be talking about it that much in other posts, but if I can open your eyes to the great options out there, and it results in a few small swaps, then the impact is still worth it. In addition, I still have a large stash of makeup that are non cruelty free that I will be continuing to write about until they are used up in the interest of not being wasteful.
I'd love to know your thoughts and can't wait to show you some of the amazing things I have discovered so far. Do you have any tips yourself for me?
