    "After i read about the viral post of a woman who posted her review on the Kat Von D eyeline that stayed all throughout with her even after she got involved in the car accident I was convinced to buy products from this brand. But the first thing i searched about is that if this brand was cruelty-free and it was so I instantly bought and tried its products. So far i am loving everything about this brand. "

    "Been hearing about the brow products of Anastacia since most makeup lovers are claiming they have the best ones on the market. The only problem i was having doubts though if Anastacia is cruelty-free but after i found out that it is. Damn I instantly bought their brow products. Definitely worth the price. "

    "TBH i did not expect that Nyx will remain cruelty-free after L'Oreal acquired. Thank God though it remains cruelty-free because if they no longer one then I would definitely be not buying their products even if i like most of their products. "

What i like the most about Lime Crime are pretty much all of their lipsticks (which i own almost all the colors) Their lipsticks dont really rub off on anything except on oil. "
