Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog. I know we’ve been posting a lot but this post is pretty time sensitive! If you were looking for a makeup post, one will be up Thursday like normal so don’t worry!
I am sure most of you know by now that NARS is no longer considered a cruelty free brand. If you have been anywhere on social media beauty bloggers everywhere (including me) are freaking out about it. They’ve made the decision to sell in China which includes mandatory animal testing, which is really sad!

But there is an upside, NARS has not entered the Chinese market yet (plan to sometime in 2017), which means we still have some time to convince them not to. And I get it, sometimes these big companies seem so untouchable. And they probably wouldn’t listen if it was two or three people asking them to remain cruelty free. But if theres two or three thousand of us asking then maybe it would be a different story.
At first I felt so powerless and then I realized that I can actually do something, I have all of you guys! And all of you run blogs and can do something too! We can make such a huge difference together.
I’m not a petition gal, but I found this one online from change.org. I have already signed it of course, and I wanted to share it with you guys. NARS cosmetics are the epitome of luxury and I don’t own any of their products but I have always lusted after their products hoping someday to be able to afford them, so I am so sad and I’m sure some of you guys are as well.
This petition has been up for like a day and already has so much support. I hope you guys consider signing this petition as well, it’s entirely free, you can donate money if you wish, (I didn’t, just signed), you don’t need an account and they will email you, but you can unsubscribe so it has no downside.
I hope you guys consider signing, and if you don’t want to that’s fine! Pass this info along to someone who might! Here is the link if you want to copy paste it: https://www.change.org/p/nars-cosmetics-stop-nars-from-changing-their-animal-testing-policy
