Today we have an awesome collaboration guest post all about Cruelty Free beauty products! If you want to read more about cruelty free makeup and beauty products be sure to check out my post on Makeup Made in the USA which lists if the lines are cruelty free or not. Enjoy!
The beauty industry has risen to be one of the biggest commercial industries. However, there are still some cosmetics companies that do animal testing. While Korean beauty companies like Missha take pride in their company ethics, practices and values, there are still a lot of globally-available companies that pay for animal testing in China. You’d be surprised how a lot of these animal-cruel products still hit the shelf.
Animal cruelty is a serious offense but some companies still spend money on having their products tested on animals. There are a lot of reasons behind this practice, and this kind of testing has been done by top beauty brands for centuries. While some companies have stopped this kind of testing and resorted to healthier alternatives, there are still those that have stayed in the dark ages of product testing.

I’ve found so many cute pieces at amazing prices! And they’ve held up too!
Stassi Schroeder of Vanderpump Rules recently released her book Next Level Basic and has been touring the country to promote it. This week she did a book signing at Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles and her makeup looked gorgeous.

How does Denise Richards stay looking so beautiful?
