Is your favorite makeup brand cruelty-free?

With the leap of self-expression through art and the rise of beauty influencers, the demand for cosmetics and beauty products has found massive growth over the past few years.

With the industry's competitive market, many companies continue to produce and introduce new products to stand out in a sea of other beauty brands. Unfortunately, behind the glitz and glamour of cosmetics and makeups, some brands use animals to test their products, leading to abuse, ill-treatment of the animal, or worse—death.
