For those who place special attention on the treatment of our furry companions, buying cruelty-free products is a must. While shopping for beauty products, you always check the labels for that familiar little bunny rabbit giving you the green light to buy. You might even look at blogs and online lists of companies that test on animals or the companies that do not test on animals, but their parent companies do. However committed you are to the cause, you could benefit from adding a few brands to your list. These beauty brands are proudly cruelty-free and come highly recommended.
This brand is a must for those who put more effort into their eyeshadow than most aspects of their lives. I feel like we need to take a moment for the insane color payoff of these highly pigmented shadows.
