Internette Featurette:

July 6, 2010

This is a brand new site (just like mine!) but it has quickly become invaluable to me as a makeup-wearing lady. So this week’s Internette Featurette is! Melisser is already known as something of a vegan Renaissance woman thanks to her fantastic blog Urban Housewife, and has blessedly decided to channel her knowledge as a makeup artist into a database of vegan cosmetics, which is growing by the day, along with video tutorials.

While it’s generally fairly easy to determine whether or not cosmetics companies test on animals and then use that information to cobble together a personal care routine that works for you (Jason Natural fragrance-free body wash and Paula’s Choice skincare/haircare are my staples) it can be very dicey and confusing to try to figure out what makeup is actually vegan (so many awesome red lipsticks are loaded with carmine). Until now, it’s been an odyssey/nightmare of looking at Livejournal communities that haven’t been updated since 2006, emailing companies directly, frantic Googling, and crying frustration. But no longer! As I go through my old makeup and need to replenish, this site will be a lifesaving resource for finding new vegan products (maybe even a gorgeous peachy-pink blush that will make me look like a painting by Jean-Baptiste Greuze?):
