Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

VEQUE Vegan, 9-Free Nail Polish Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

If you’re looking for salon-quality nail polish that is cruelty-free, vegan, and doesn’t contain harmful toxins then you need to hear all about VEQUE!

After confirming VEQUE’s animal testing policy, I was kindly sent some of their beautiful vegan nail polish colors to try. Here’s the full scoop about VEQUE:

About VEQUE Vegan Nail Polish

  • VEQUE is pronounced like vey-quay
  • All nail polish are cruelty-free, 100% vegan, and 9-free
  • Handcrafted in the USA
  • Seattle-based start-up
  • Founded by a family of nail artists with over 100 years of combined industry experience
  • Claims to be a Gel-like nail polish formula

Veque Nail Polish Collection

I am absolutely blown away with the application and how opaque VEQUE’s nail polish are! Not to mention, the color options are so stunning and unique! My full review continues after I show some of the lovely colors I got to try!

The nail polish collection I received was inspired by the foggy greyness of San Francisco where each color is named after a neighborhood.

Subdued by an everlasting fog of grey inspired by #KarlTheFog.

Laurel Heights – Veque ($18)

Laurel Heights is a full-coverage taupe grey with a creme finish.

Sea Cliff – Veque ($18)

This is such a unique color!!! Sea Cliff is a full-coverage muted dark blue with a creme finish.

Marina – Veque ($18)

Marina is a full-coverage light grey in a creme finish.

Presido – Veque ($18)

This is my favorite!! Presido is a full-coverage muted green with a touch of grey in a creme finish.

Telegraph Hill – Veque ($18)

Telegraph Hill is a full-coverage dark grey with a cool undertone with a creme finish.

Veque Nail Polish Review

VEQUE nail polish brushes are bigger than most nail polish brands, it sort of reminds me of *hype nail’s Big Brush. I love a bigger nail polish brush, even though my nails are small and super narrow, but it makes application so much easier and quicker.

With the bigger and tapered brush, the nail polish color applies evenly with just one stroke and all 5 of VEQUE’s vegan nail polish were streak-free and incredibly opaque that I could honestly get away with just one coat!!

VEQUE’s vegan and 9-free nail polish are $18 each, which is on the high-end but after personally trying them out myself… I have to say they are worth it, in my opinion. If you want a full-coverage nail polish with an easy applicator brush, then you’ll definitely enjoy some of VEQUE’s nail polish!

You can find VEQUE nail polish on their website or at J.Crew!
