Why I love Target stores!

Very affordable, cruelty-free, vegan make up! From Target! Right here in Millbury, at the Blackstone Valley Shops!

More and more companies are becoming AWARE of the plight of animals in many cosmetic company “labs”! Global businesses like Target choose to sell makeup that does NO HARM to animals! Yay!     – R. Tirella

From PETA.ORG:

1. Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara

Pacifica is an all-vegan brand—hallelujah! We love its mineral mascara, which helps lengthen and strengthen lashes.

2. e.l.f. Essentials Tone Correcting Concealer

It’s hard to believe that this product only costs $1. Yes, that’s correct—and it works really well, too!

Elf Concealer

3. NYX Push-Up Bra for Your Eyebrow

We’ll admit that this is a bizarre name for a makeup product, but this dual-sided pencil allows you to fill your arches in with a light color and hide any inconsistencies with a darker shade.

4. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio

This cruelty-free brand features many vegan products, including this glitzy eyeliner trio.

3 cheers for Wet n Wild and e.l.f. make-up!! I always have the e.l.f. blush/lip tube jammed into the pocket of my blue jean jacket!  Have their creamy eye-shadows at home … . Use their mascara in the a.m. before I head out the door to run ICT!  Wet n Wild has great thick tubes of tinted lip balm. SPF, too! Used their cherry balm all summer. Price tag? For e.l.f. products a buck at the buck store! A bit more $ at Target and Burlington Coat Factory. Wet n Wild make-up: $2, $3 and $4/$5 at Walgreens or CVS. My point is: You don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy good, on-trend make up THAT IS NOT TESTED ON RABBITS JAMMED INTO CAGES getting high “doses” of product squirted into their eyes over and over again …  Cruel, cruel, cruel. Pointless.

 From PETA.ORG:
 
When we heard that e.l.f. (eyes lips face) company was selling cool cruelty-free cosmetics for a buck each, we couldn’t believe it. But it’s not a fairy tale—e.l.f.really does exist, and you can easily find its products at your local Target and Kmart. It just doesn’t get any easier than that when shopping for cruelty-free makeup!

Operating under the belief that “[e]very woman should have the opportunity to participate in innovation, without sacrificing her budget,” e.l.f. offers a wide variety of high-quality beauty products that look and feel fantastic. But don’t just take our word for it—major magazines such as GlamourAllure, andSelf can’t stop raving about them, either!

While e.l.f. has loads of must-have mascaras, lip glosses, blushes, bronzers, brushes, and much, much more, we can’t help but be partial to its“PETA” tweezers. After all, e.l.f. has created these special tweezers just for us!

Emblazoned with the slogan “Fur Free,” these tweezers come in a case that sports PETA’s cruelty-free bunny logo and reads, “e.l.f. Professional Supports PETA in the Fur Free Campaign: www.PETA.org.” Pretty cool, huh? So now you can extend your “fur-freeness” beyond your wardrobe. What’s even cooler is the fact that 50 percent of the proceeds from sales of these tweezers go straight to PETA!

For an even more customized shopping experience, create your own online beauty profile. Just enter your stats, habits, and preferences, and the experts at e.l.f. will not only recommend the perfect products for you but also save your favorite picks in your very own personal account. You can purchase your “customized just for you” cosmetics online or cruise down to one of these convenient locations near you!

With such a huge variety of sensational cruelty-free stuff at such low prices, who wouldn’t be ecstatic about e.l.f.? PETA sure is. That’s why we’re proud to honor company CEO Joey Shamah with a Trail-Blazer Award for his compassion and commitment to never testing on animals.

It’s the end of winter and we’re feeling a little funky, a little …

… chubby, a little droopy, a little bored. Mainly, WE’RE FREAKIN’ SICK OF WINTER!!!!!!!!!!! AURGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quick pick-me-up? NEW MAKE UP, OF COURSE! I get all my products at the drugstore (where else would a blue-collar gal like me shop for make-up, Laura Bush, not withstanding?). My wet ‘n’ wild black mascara can be traded in for the more natural-looking brown. My ELF pink lip gloss can be replaced with something a bit … orange-y, spring’s go-to lip color. All cruelty-free, not tested on rabbits.

You can get a bunch of good drug store make up that HAS NOT BEEN TESTED ON cute white rabbits! Lots of times you will see the cruelty-free bunny logo (below) on the cruelty-free make-up package. Click here to read a PETA story on cruelty-free drugstore make up.
