Is there really a need to test cosmetics on animals? The simple answer is no. However the sad truth is that around twenty seven thousand animals are still used for cosmetics testing by brands across the world. Yes that’s twenty seven thousand+ animals that suffer in the name of beauty. Rather sickening isn’t it?
Thankfully there are a number of companies that are well and truly against testing cosmetics on animals. One such company is The Body Shop who have recently teamed up with the RSPCA to create a campaign called ‘Testing on Bloggers, which I'm so excited to be a part of!
But before I go onto show you the lovely products I was sent to test, I urge you to join the RSPCA in calling for the top ten global cosmetic companies to ‘Makeover the World.’ It is their aim to get these companies to commit to not using animals to develop new products or ingredients, not market further products in countries where animal testing is required and to contribute towards the development of humane alternative methods. I've signed the petition & it would be fantastic if you did too!

|Head in the Sky Eyeshadow - £7.00* // Eyeshadow Blender Brush - £10.00* // Define & Lengthen Mascara - £10.00* // Oh Honey Eyeshadow - £7.00* // Liquid Eyeliner - £9.00*|
I've also really enjoyed using the liquid eyeliner and mascara. I'd say the liquid eyeliner is quite wet, so you will need to make sure you leave it a second to dry but aside from that it's really easy to create a good old flick! The Define and Lengthen mascara really lives up to it's name, in that it does exactly that. Whilst I do like the volume my other mascara gives, I think this is great for coating those hard-to-reach lashes in the corner of the eye, as well as the bottom lashes.

And that's everything! Thanks for sticking with me. I know it was a pretty long post but I really wanted to talk about how I feel about animal testing rather than just concentrating on the products. I hope you enjoyed the read! Please let me know if you sign the campaign and which products you like the sound of!
