Kat Von D’s Makeup Line Goes Vegan

katvond_hero_3

Kat Von D is a known name in the makeup game, her makeup is advertised as completely covering up tattoos, and it is known for its vibrant pigment. This comes in handy for someone who has tattoos that is going for a job interview or even a bride. Before she stepped into the makeup game, she was a tattoo artist with a TV show on TLC. She then launched her makeup line and made a known name for herself filling up the Sephora shelves and selling out her popular products.

Her makeup line is already cruelty-free but she is now making the brand transition to vegan. She is an active member in the fight for animal rights and hopes that her brands transition will bring awareness to the lack of rights.

In documenting her life she has also documented her transition to veganism which she made five years ago, and has become recognized for her efforts. Kat Von D recently won the Compassion in Action award from the animal advocacy non-profit Farm Sanctuary. She was recognized for her plight to end animal cruelty.

“There is no point in developing anything at the cost of exploiting and abusing animals. Not only is it important for me to create a 100 percent cruelty-free brand, but also send out a very clear message to both consumers and companies out there: testing on animals in the name of beauty is cruel and unnecessary.”

-Kat Von D in an interview with Cosmopolitan

Here is a list of vegan products that Kat Von D already carries. She has an extensive list and soon her whole line will be vegan. This is a bold transition and I hope that it will inspire other makeup brands to do the same.

I applaud her for this move in the makeup realm, where it is easy to just think about potential buyers and not about how animals could get hurt in the process. She already has a successful makeup business and she’s using her platform to give a voice to animals.

I have not personally tried her makeup brand but I do plan on it in the future. What are your thoughts on it? And what product suggestions do you guys have from her brand?

LUSH Bath Bomb Stops Bears from being Hunted

LUSH hauls were my first obsession to watch on YouTube in middle school. Me and my friends would beg my mom to drive me to LUSH at our local mall and I would spend all of my allowance on pampering myself with their cruelty free and vegetarian body products. I was even offered a job after explaining to my mom the extensive list of products that they carried (pat on the back). I have since outgrown my obsession but every now and then the heavenly smell invites me into the store and somehow I leave with a bag of products.

This week a vegan and cruelty-free bath bomb Great Bear from LUSH hand-made cosmetics was stocked in stores. This bath bomb donates 100 percent of the proceeds to help stop bears from being hunted and killed in America

Adorning this bath bomb is a gorgeous stylized bear, the result of a collaboration with First Nations artist Jeff Robinson. By purchasing this bath bomb, you’re helping to protect bears from being hunted and killed for sport: 100% of the sales of this bath bomb (minus taxes) will go to our Grizzly Grants fund to support organizations working to protect bears in North America.”LUSH fresh hand-made cosmetics

My Beauty Bunny recently wrote a review on this bath bomb. It retails for $6.95 .

The design of the bath bomb is made by the First Nations artist Jeff Robinson which has a Native American tribal craved bear.

LUSH hand-made cosmetics is bringing awareness to trophy hunting and is making an effort to help stop the horrible aspect of torturing and murder of animals for fun.
