Testing on Bloggers | The Body Shop
have come up with an amazing promotion in support of the RSPCA
to raise awareness of their Make Over The World Campaign,
called Testing on Bloggers.
Many people believe that cosmetics testing on animals is a thing of the
past, yet thousands of animals worldwide still suffer in the name of
beauty. Around 27,000 animals are estimated to still be used for cosmetics
testing across the world. This includes the use of mice, rats and
rabbits in tests which can cause pain and distress. We believe this is
The Body Shop are just one of 10 Global companies taking part in the Make Over The World Campaign committing to:
- not to use animals to develop new products or ingredients
- not to market further products in countries where animal testing is required
- to help further the development of humane alternative methods.
I am completely and utterly against Animal Testing
and this is one of the reasons in the New Year I will be making some
changes to my blog in regards to what I write about on my little space.
Zoe Newlove is going green guys, but these ideas will have to
wait for another post as today I want to tell you about the lovely
make-up I have been testing from The Body Shop.
In honour of this movement, I have been testing out some of their make-up and tools. I had never before tried make-up from this brand, so was intrigued to see if it was just as good as my beloved Coconut body moisturiser…
I loved using the Define and Lengthen Mascara*, after a good 2 coats this made my lashes look lush. I am super fussy when it comes to mascara and I am so glad I have found one from a natural brand that I can rely on now. It does not smudge or flake, so no more panda eyes.
I had seen the Bronze Shimmer Waves*
pop up on a few blogs so was looking forward to sweeping this across my face with the beautifully soft Blusher Brush
. Being practically see through this bronzer gave me just the right pop of colour to make me look alive, I also used it as part of the eye look.
Moving onto the eyes, the Colour Crush Eyeshadows* feel like velvet on application. My only niggle would be I found the pigment to drop a little bit. I think this is because I got a bit carried away with sweeping the pink shade over my lid. To finish off the eyes I used a little bit of the Liquid Eyeliner*, which was so easy to use and went on like a dream. I am not very good with eye liner hence why I hardly ever wear it, but this one from The Body Shop even surpassed my shaky hands.
Last but not least, I was nervous to wear such a bright shade of pink on my lips, but after cheekily adding a darker lip liner I actually quite liked it in the end. These Colour Crush lipsticks* are super moisturising and even have a subtle scent of rose. I am wearing the shade Passionate Pink.
Moving forward I will only be using Cruelty Free make-up and I am so pleased I got to take part in this important campaign. What are your thoughts on Animal Testing?
