So to start off I will tell you Info on the subject,about my experience so far,what I am, and some tips to self control & not giving in to your makeup addiction (if u have one like me). Ok so I am not vegan but I am vegetarian which for me I have ulcerative colitis & I need the iron in the meat & I can't have much dairy anyway but that is one way I get protein also a lot of tofu. But I do buy only cf products and I don't/ plan on buying non vegan products (meaning I won't/don't buy products that aren't tested on animals but don't have a agreement/signed contract with the ingredient companys they buy from.) So vegetarian is a big deal for me! Now on to the tips/tip. I love Maybelline for example and when I go to grocery stores/department stores I get really tempted to buy stuff from them. So what I do is I think about the animals have the makeup squeezed into there eyes with no pain killer and there skin being shaved for makeup brushes and if that doesn't work I think about the animals being decapitated after they're no use in the labs.:( :( That like always works! Popular (not all) cosmetic brands that DO test on animals Toothpaste: Colgate, Aim, Sensodine, Oral-B, Listerine, Creast, Aquafreash, Macleans. Makeup: Maybelline,Mac, Loreal,Bare minarals (they claim they're cruelty free,but some of their brushes are made from animal fur and a lot of brands especially lash brands say the hair they use is naturally shed,but that's simply not the case it's not even possible for animals or mink/rabbits to shed that much!! Anyway my point is don't listen to that BS! VS Pink/VS, Revlon, Rimmel, Sephora brand, NYC, Lancome, YSL, Dior,Stila,Benifit, Covergirl, Avon, Clinique, Almay, Estee lauder, Nails: Opi, Essie.
