Following my "Makeup Collection & Storage video" which I uploaded last week, I have been bombarded with comments and messages about how NARS tests on animals. I was shocked considering NARS is an expensive brand and usually higher end brands usually don't test on animals (thank goodness!).
Firstly, I looked it up and found out that NARS does NOT test on animals. It says it on their website plain and simple. NARS never has and never will test on any of our animal friends. Heres the link: http://www.narscosmetics.com/customer_home.aspx
Also, did you know that Francois Nars (the creator of the makeup brand) is actually a Vegan?!
So I highly doubt he would let people test his products and put his name on a product that was tested on animals.
Next, I asked Katie (aka saywhatcuteface18 on YouTube) if NARS tested on animals. Katie worked at PETA and is a vegetarian and avid animal rights activists and she purchases NARS products. She told me personally that NARS does not test on animals.
I'm not sure where this rumor got started or why people write it to me so many times on like every video now! I'll just refer all of the "You won't buy Covergirl but you'll buy NARS?! They both test on animals" comments to this blog post :)
Now there seems to be some drama with me and Coastal Scents. Yes! I am aware that "Coastal Scents" claims NOT t0 test on animals. But they DO support animal cruelty. Again, you can watch saywhatcuteface18's video on this topic.
Coastal Scents do not test their products on animals. However, they DO support animal cruelty. They sell "mink" lashes for an extremely low price, but in reality it isn't actually "mink" that was gently brushed to get the fur. They eyelashes aren't real mink, it's dog and cat fur. The dogs and cats are brutally skinned, sometimes alive, they are stepped on and they scream and feel pain just like us.The fact that Coastal Scents is willing to purchase and sell these cruel items is what puts me against this 'company'
