Cruelty-Free Beauty Brushes

Many people don’t know that beauty brushes sold to apply powder, blush, and eye shadow are often made with animal hair. Animals, as you probably know, didn’t willingly give up their hair to make a brush. It was taken from them and turned into a beauty brush, one that’s probably being touted as “the best” or better than one with synthetic bristles. We’re not too happy with this fact. We want to encourage you to choose synthetic options the next time you go shopping for makeup brushes. We would love for you to help us build up the market for cruelty-free beauty brushes, so that animals can keep their hair and we can benefit too. Continue reading [...]

WhipLash Eyelash Curler Review: The Eyelash Curler Everyone’s Buzzing About

Since we ended our love affair with Tarte Cosmetics after they agreed to be purchased by a company who tests on animals, we thought it only fair to offer up a new eyelash curler from a company that doesn't test on animals, since it was only a few months ago that we sung the praises of Tarte's eyelash curler. The good news is that we found an eyelash curler that is even better than Tarte's. Continue reading [...]

Too Faced was founded by husbands Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, 15 years ago. Both men got their start in the cosmetic and fashion industry, before coming together to create Too Faced, so named for Jerrod's pet name for the women who would go from sweet to stressed whenever he was out of their favorite makeup product.

Our 5 Favorite Cruelty-Free and Vegan Beauty Tools

We all know that makeup brushes are often made with animal fur, and so we have to be diligent to make sure that the brushes we buy are made of synthetic materials. But just because a beauty tool doesn't have animal fur, doesn't mean that it's cruelty-free. For instance, the Shu Uemura company is famous for, among many other beauty products, their eyelash curler, which has a cult following. But Shu Uemura is owned by L'Oreal, who still tests their products on animals in order to sell to the Chinese market. Luckily, there are many excellent beauty tools that don't come at the cost of compassion. Continue reading [...]
