Vegan Make Up

I’m very excited as this weekend I have have treated myself to some new makeup, Including this lipgloss (f-bomb) from Urban Decay, which I have been thinking about buying for months now.

I’m a vegetarian, and I’m quite strict with it, so not only do I try to buy products from companies that don’t test on animals but also items that don’t include animal bi-products too. But as another vegetarian I know says “I just try to be a vegetarian to the best of my abilities” and I’ve rather embraced that idea myself, as it can be a real minefield. I’m constantly finding things that it never even occurred to me to consider whether they are vegetarian friendly before.
So when I come across different resources I jump on them. A couple of years ago I brought ‘The Animal Free Shopper’ from The Vegan Society thinking that would make my life easier. However it wasn’t quite what I was looking for, as it only listed certain items/ brand and not necessarily ones you would easily find on the High Street. It’s a great resource but unfortunately for me it has done little more than sit on my bookcase.

So you can probably imagine my joy when I came across this fantastic blog The Vegan Taff. She has reviewed lots of high street products, and through reading her blog Kelly has introduced me to brands I would never consider having vegan friendly items in their range. This has made me very happy… although me not so sure how good it will be on the bank balance!

After reading up on The Vegan Taff and tweeting her directly for advice on mascara I ended up buying ‘Lash Vegas Mascara‘ by Barry M. I can’t wait to try it out.


And now I have a very long wish lists of items to buy in the future too! Anyway I’m now going to sign off and go and try out my new products. I’ll let you know how I find them.
