Hey loves, I’m so glad for Caroline from Diva Inside for having me as one of her guest bloggers. I follow her on a daily basis and I love her content and how she’s always so true to her readers.

Caroline, sent me a few topics I can choose from and I decided to pursue a cruelty-free makeup review.

Along the years, I have managed to distinguish between brands that test on animals and which don’t. When I started experimenting with makeup, I admit that I had a few pieces which were animal tested. Over the years, awareness has become more active and there are lists that show us which brands are cruelty-free.

Today I’ll be reviewing a few makeup pieces from three different brands that cater for no animal testing and vegan makeup.

Body Shop – It’s been one of my all time fav stores for years. They have a vast range of vegan products which is what’s making me fall in love with their brand. Their skin care has improved so much over the years and I wouldn’t change my skin care routine for the world. Here are 3 of the latest products I have purchased from the Body Shop:

Drops – Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution
Mask – Tea tree anti-Imperfection night mask

“PETA has a written communication from The Body Shop assuring us that the company’s no-animal-tests policy will not change and that all its products will remain cruelty-free. We were the first global beauty brand to fight against animal testig in cosmetics. Over the last three decades, we’ve worked with our campaign partner Cruelty Free International and our collective efforts helped lead to a European Union ban in 2013. But that isn’t enough. 80% of countries still allow animal testing. Animals continue to be used in testing, and we want to end this practice everywhere and forever.”

NYX – Since NYX was introduced in Malta, I can have nothing but positive comments about this brand. Apart from being cruelty-free, their products and makeup have been amazing to my skin. Even though I have so many favourites, these recently made it to the top of my list:

Highlighter – Illuminating Stick
Brow Gel

W7 – At first glance, seeing the prices of makeup from this brand would make you think that they’re not of high quality. I can assure you, that you’re wrong! I bought my ever W7 palette a year ago, thinking it might not be that good until it became my favourite palette. Lately, I also read that the brand caters for non-animal testing products wile also being vegan. Although they are not very well known, make sure to try out a few items from this brand.

Palette – Natural Nudes
Powder – Natural Beige

I hope this blog was helpful and you will make sure to search the net before buying anything that’s being tested on sweet little creatures. Just because they don’t have a voice, doesn’t mean we can’t act on it.
Much love,
