I’ve been searching for a cruelty free cosmetic line ever since I found out Clinique (who I had been using at the time) Mary Kay, and Avon were no longer cruelty free. It turns out they have been trying to sell their products in China, and the Chinese government will not allow any products used for personal care to be sold unless they have been tested first…on animals. So, hearing this news I began looking for a company, that was not only cruelty free, it’s suppliers cruelty free, AND reasonably priced!
There are several great options out there. Urban Decay and Hard Candy, are two such companies. I had decided to get some things at Target and thought I’d check out Sonia Kashuk, since I knew this line is sold there. Imagine my extreme surprise when I found out that not only are all of Sonia Kashuk cosmetics are cruelty free, but so are their suppliers as well as their make-up brushes.
I wound up buying some concealer, and I have to say I’m thrilled with it. It actually covers better than the Clinque I had been using, and was almost three times less expensive. My next purchase will be foundation. There are a couple of colors that look like a good match for my skin, and I’ll also get some blush. I think I’m going to be very happy with this.
