By now, I’m sure you’ve all witnessed the NARS drama that’s been going down in the beauty-sphere, especially if you’re a hardcore high-end brand lover. If not, though, here’s the low-down–essentially, NARS have gone back on their promise and are now going to animal-test in order to sell in China. Cue very sad bunnies crying.
Animal testing is a pretty contentious topic nowadays, especially as more people begin to recognise it as a pretty serious yet somewhat condoned form of animal cruelty. We support any brand striving to be more considerate and ethical, so if you’re all about cruelty-free as well, here are our favourite, go-to brands.
Cruelty-Free Beauty We Can Get Behind
It’s the professional makeup brand the Kardashians use on the daily–we’re talking about Mehron. Ideal for the stage and screen or simply a full face, their products are must-haves if you want full coverage, a wide shade range and long-lasting formulas. Colour us surprised when we discovered Mehron are entirely cruelty-free and ethical–even though they originated almost 100 years ago, painting famous faces such as Elizabeth Taylor and Judy Garland, Mehron have made it their mission to never test on animals. Plus, a good majority of their products are vegan!
If you’re not sure to start with Mehron, perhaps the most popular product in their range is the Celebre-Pro-HD Cream Foundation. This high-coverage foundation is ideal if you want to cover up blemishes or dark spots, and it’s also great to contour with to create dimension in the face! Eyeshadow lovers will adore the E.Y.E Powder, which has a blendable and highly pigmented formula.
