Cruelty Free & Fabulous:
Tip of the Week

Cosmetic brushes made of real animal hair are soooo passé…and Too Faced agrees.

We can’t get over Too-Faced Flatbuki Powder and Blush Brush.  It’s an unbelievably soft brush made of synthetic fibers… therefore, VEGAN and Cruelty Free! How do they do it?  With their exclusive Teddy Bear Hair, of course! We think this is so incredible that the entire world should rush to buy one. Nothing beats a cruelty free, flawless finish. Check out their entire line of synthetic Teddy Bear Hair brushes at

PAW in the News
"Protest Looms for Petland"

Cage Free

Caged Eggs Increase Chance of Salmonella Contamination. Current egg recall covers half a billion eggs in 23 states. The reason?  Battery cages.

Eggs produced from hens in extreme confinement increases the chance of salmonella by 200%.  Not only is it a health risk for humans, it’s inhumane for hens. Hens confined in battery cages have less space than a piece of paper. They also suffer from a variety of diseases and cages thwart their natural behaviors.
