Whoever said "You'd better not pout" anyway?

Many of us are familiar with the earthy crunchy (even unwashed) vegan and vegetarian stereotypes. But the truth is, we pretty much all live in the real world. And many of us still get a kick out of "worldly" things. Just because we might chow down on tempeh and kale, it doesn't mean that we won't flip through an issue of Vogue now and again.

While some of us may be makeup wearers and some of us not, chances are if we had the choice, we'd prefer there to be more cruelty-free products on the market, right? Good news for all of us then: Turns out that we
don't have to banish ourselves to a lipstick-free existence if we don't want to.

I pretty much love this online store for a number of reasons. Firstly, the makeup is free of animal ingredients and by-products, and none of it is tested on animals. It totally takes the guesswork out of reading all of those crazy chemical names on the back of your tube of lipstick. And trust me, PETA wouldn't affiliate themselves with just any cosmetic company...not without some serious animal-friendly standards.

Also, MAJOR bonus: da da da da! - most of the cosmetics cost $1 to $5 apiece! Not even the drugstore can beat that for animal-free goodies!! Additionally, e.l.f. posts sales and promotions all the time. Free shipping, free gifts, half off, and on and on. Totally worth it on all counts in my opinion. It literally is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

So check 'em out today. And the only reason you'll pout at your holiday parties will be because you're totally in love with your new lip gloss and you just caught your reflection in an ornament.

Happy Holidays everyone!
