Cosmetic Testing on Animals Is Now Illegal!

This will be something that animal lovers can celebrate. Now the Animal Welfare Amendment Bill, has been passed in New Zealand, it’s official that cosmetic testing on animal is illegal. The punishment for violating the laws are 6 months in prison and up to US$125,000 fee.

The cosmetic testing on animals has been proven to be unnecessary and inefficient since the results may or may not be applicable to people; nonetheless the animals in testing have to go through intense distress and suffering.

“The bill, complete with 61 new rules and policies that are split up into two different sections, covers all the new ways animals will be protected from abuse and it also allows easier prosecution against anyone committing animal cruelty.

Aside from just banning animal testing, the bill also includes a number of ways to protect animals, establishing when surgical procedures are appropriate, specific areas allotted for hunting, and the proper treatment of wild animals.

The punishment for breaking these rules is also included in the bill, and the severity of the charges makes it abundantly clear that New Zealand is serious about protecting those who cannot speak for themselves.

Animal cruelty, for example, can be broken down into two different categories: willful and reckless.

Willful mistreatment of animals or causing an animal serious distress can result in up to five years in prison or as much as a $100,000 fine for a single individual, or $500,000 for a group or corporation.

Recklessly, or accidentally, committing the same crime can result in up to three years in prison or a $75,000 fine for an individual, or $350,000 for a group.

This, however, does not apply to cosmetic testing on animals where individuals are liable to imprisonment for up to 6 months and corporations can be subjected to a $125,000 fine.”

FDA Warned Lime Crime Cosmetics of Non-Approved Ingredients

The cosmetic brand Lim Crime has been known for their unusually and wide range of colors. One of their global best-selling products with the potential unsafe ingredients  is Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick.

The FDA has sen the company the warning letter since July but the issue has been let out to public this month (August 2015).

The lipstick is known for its high pigmentation, and long-lasting finish. And the ingredients in question are ferric ferrocyanide and ultramarines, both coloring agents.

“The FDA has approved both for use in “externally applied cosmetics,” but that designation doesn’t include lipstick, since it comes into contact with the mucous membranes of the mouth and ingredients can be absorbed. (To be clear, the FDA has not tested the lipsticks. It issued the warning letter based on the ingredients listed on the label.) That leaves Lime Crime with two choices: Get rid of those ingredients if they are indeed in the lipsticks, or fix the labeling if the ingredients aren’t present. ” – Source : http://fashionista.com/2015/08/lime-crime-fda-warning

Other previous accusations that the brand had to confront and issue in the past are;

  • Ineligible to call itself a ‘vegan brand’ when their products contain beeswax and carmine. (the company owner Doe Deere addressed the issue and removed the ingredients)
  • In February of 2015 Lime Crime faced a credit and data breach (the company did not handle in an expeditious or forthright manner)
  • Lime Crime has been taken off of Sephora’s shelves.

“Well if it’s Too Faced it’s got to be GREAT. Reminds of the Holiday Pallet. I got one last year the Everything’s Nice from Sephora and it’s like having a treasure. I adore it. It’s the most of the brand I have of course there is a lot of product. I can’t wait for this years. I am praying I have the money. I’m not able to spend a lot on makeup. We have to have food first. We r kinda poor. I’m a Cancer survivor/fighter for 13 yrs now and can’t work it’s all up to my husband. So I tell u that when I get to have something super nice as that Holiday pallet it’s Treasured like nothing else. And TooFaced is the brand I want. The products r not only great but the pkging is PERFECT. I even follow Jerrod on IG besides the brand for any hunt of new products coming out. When u r a poor country girl lol. U appreciate the nicer things a little more than others do. Thank you so much for giving me this chance to tell you how much I LOVE TOO FACED.” –  OYCE CHITWOOD

If you’re like me who thinks falsies are comfortable and difficult to wear, this trick will be so useful for you. After your first coat of mascara, apply baby powder using cotton tips over the lashes. Then quickly apply the 2nd layer of mascara to avoid clumps.

 

Trick# 8 –  Draw those perfect lines every time

Kylie Jenner Makeup Inspired by NikkieTutorials

Loving the Kardashian Sisters? Watch NikkieTutorials created this Kylie Jenner Inspired Makeup Look…

This look of the famous Kardashian sister is seen everywhere on the social media world and it has inspired Nikkie to try to create the look. Nikkie said that luckily Kylie’s makeup artist is kind enough to share the tips and the products used on her instagram. And that’s what makes it easy for her to recreate it.

 

Key points of this look

  • Winged out eye shadows
  • Start with primer, medium eye color shade (brown) on the crease.
  • Then go in with darker brown in the area before the crease (try to focus the shade on the outer area only).
  • Then go in with the darkest shade of brown to intensify the wings of the outer eyes (creating elongated look).
  • Use fluffy brush to defuse the shadow.
  • Kylie = warm face, and lots of contour so do use matte bronzer and brownish eye shadow to create the hollow on the cheeks.
  • Brown +pink nude lip colors
