Brands I Miss After Going Cruelty-free

by - November 05, 2018

I did a post a while ago about brands I don't miss after going cruelty-free and I was planning on doing another one the opposite way but other ideas got in the middle but now I'm finally doing it.
I don't want anyone to misinterpret what I'm trying to do here, I'm not saying I will stop living a cruelty-free lifestyle because of these brands, my commitment to animals is more important than any of this, I'm simply saying I miss these brands and that I wish they were cruelty-free and maybe they'll be one day, I can only hope for it.

Rimmel London
This is a brand I was truly sad to leave behind and still today I'm sad. I loved Rimmel London and I definitely believe it's a very underrated brand. The quality is great and they're around the same price as L'Oréal and Maybelline. Everything I tried from them I loved and can only beg them to go cruelty-free.

This is more for tradition than anything else. Nivea is quite famous here for their basic cream that seems to be good for everything. But over the years they have really stepped up their game and now have amazing products that I used to love and some others I'd want to try. They seem like they might be really well formulated and that they're very good quality without breaking the bank.

I won't lie, I feel like MAC is one of those brands that has more fame than anything, I don't think they're the best thing ever or that they're products are totally worth the money even though they're not as expensive as some other brands but still, I really want to try them out! I want to see what the craze over their lipsticks is all about, I want to know if Fix+ really is that good, I want to know my foundation shade and be able to walk around knowing I'm an "NCwhatever". It might seem stupid but I want to try MAC's products at least once in my life so I hope they become cruelty-free eventually. And MAC is the only brand that almost made me break my promise. It was right in the beginning and it was the year Ariana Grande worked with them on the Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass and I almost got it but I stood strong and I'm proud of it.

Benefit is a cute brand that I'm not sure I want to try it but at the same time, I kind of want to try it. I'm not sure. If Benefit went cruelty-free I'd try it out but I'm not eager to do so. I used to be more excited for it back when their Porefessional primer was huge but now I feel like others brands have great alternatives for it.

I ALMOST bought YSL products once. I was saving up for them. And then I became cruelty-free. I was waiting for something big to happen like my birthday or Christmas to give myself an excuse to buy them but then I became cruelty-free and never did. I wanted to get a lipstick and an eyeliner. Still, to this day, the dream remains and I'll maybe fulfill it when they become cruelty-free.

I feel like since they first showed up, they've never had a bad moment. People are always talking about them and whenever a new product is released people are excited to try it out and so would I be if they were cruelty-free. They're a bit pricey but I feel it makes up for the quality.

They recently opened a shop nearby and I was gutted. This is a brand I actually thought was cruelty-free at first until I looked it up and found out it wasn't. They seem like an amazing quality brand and last week they were even offering skin diagnosis and free samples but I stood strong and walked past them with my head held high but my heart crying tears of sadness.

I hope you're having a great day,
