Lately, I have seen so much interest in vegan and cruelty free products. There are so many products out there that have harsh chemicals, that are right under our noses. When I was younger, ignorance was bliss and I indulged in many things that were not good for me.
It’s not hard to lure someone in with non-toxic ingredients. Who wouldn’t want to put something completely free of chemicals and toxins on their skin? Of course no one would deliberately buy makeup that was tested on animals, but are they really aware of what they are buying and what they are inadvertently supporting. I worked in the cosmetics industry for 10 years, and I tell you that just because it is cruelty free does not mean it is vegan; and just because it is vegan doesn’t mean it is cruelty free. A lot of people get confused. For clarification check out this easy to read article written by Tashina Combs, Founder & Editor in Chief of Logical Harmony.
Now only because I worked in this industry does not make me an expert on cruelty-free makeup. I’m an expert in makeup. I just happen to naturally lean towards makeup that doesn’t cause allergies (because of fragrance and toxins) and make my eyes burn (because of chemicals). Getting older doesn’t help.
It’s either that, or I am becoming more aware of what’s around me. I am no expert on Vegan or Cruelty Free Products. But since having kids, it has become more important to me what I put on my skin and what I put on my kids’ skins. In this new journey I have come across some fantastic products. Some are verified Cruelty-Free using the Leaping Bunny Program, and some are Cruelty-Free claiming that they do not test on animals but cannot verify that the ingredients haven’t been tested on animals by their suppliers which does not qualify them as verified Cruelty-Free.
I tried LipSense a few months ago and instantly I was hooked. I am still mourning the loss of my other designer lipsticks because I know I will never go back. Once you try it, nothing else lives up to it.
What is LipSense? It’s a long lasting lip color that bonds on your lips on a molecular level. After shaking the tube, you apply the lip color three times, waiting for at least 5 seconds for it to dry in between coats. Then you apply the Glossy Gloss which will hydrate your lips and give a glossy look. You can reapply the gloss for hydration and/or a glossy look throughout the day. It lasts up to 18 hours. You can remove and correct with the Oops remover. It is vegan and cruelty free. So, it has no wax, gluten, lead, or GMO’s.They are working on being Leaping Bunny Approved.
LipSense has some exciting things coming up including being featured on the 5,000 square-foot digital billboard in the heart of Times Square.

But my favorite product is The Lash Project. This how I felt the first time I wore it and I still feel the same way;
Younique is known for their MOODSTRUCK 3D FIBER LASHES+™ Lash Enhancer, but recently I discovered they offer so much more. One of their hottest items is the Royalty Rose Water Toning Spritz. Spritz your way to balanced skin with a gentle, fragranced mist. Created with rose extract, vitamins, and antioxidants, Rose Water Toning Spritz will leave your skin feeling fresh, calmed, and soothed.
Here is a list of all their Vegan friendly products. They are not Leaping Bunny Approved yet.
