I adore lipstick. I’ve worn it since I was about 14 years old and now I’m 52. I feel utterly naked without it. I NEED lipstick. There were times in my youth when I slept with a stick of lipstick under my pillow – so I would look gorgeously kissable as soon as I awoke. Things have definitely changed over the years, my priority now is a cup of coffee first thing in the morning but lipstick is still a very necessary part of my life.
Beauty without cruelty is now thankfully very accessible. There are so many wonderful brands that don’t test on animals. These gorgeous lipsticks pictured above are from Mineral Fusion, I ADORE them – just look at those colors!! and they stay put – you can actually munch on a meal and still have lipstick on those luscious smackers after the last morsel.
It just takes a moment to realize that you don’t have to buy into the horrible cruel world of beauty. I’m always so disappointed that “beauty” comes with such a high moral price tag, in many cases with truly awful suffering from animals. I LOVE makeup – I wouldn’t leave the house without it – but you don’t need to buy into brands that perpetuate animal cruelty. Take a moment and find some beautiful alternatives. Take a look at this list to find the most up to date cruelty free and vegan beauty produces. You can also check out the Peta website – I promise it’ll have some surprises.
Educate yourself and then delve into pure beauty.
