What’s the current situation with Drunk Elephant’s cruelty-free status?πŸ‘‡πŸ»
Shiseido is NOT a cruelty-free corporation, they DO test on animals when required by law and the brand, as well as, some of their subsidiary brands (like NARS) are sold in mainland China and are required by law to test on animals.
Shiseido does own two cruelty-free brands, bareMinerals and BUXOM.
So.. will Drunk Elephant remain Cruelty-Free?
YES! According to Drunk Elephant, they'll remain cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified!!! βœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨Swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to read their response when asked about their cruelty-free standing after the announcement.
TL;DR - Shiseido (a non-cruelty-free corporation) acquires Drunk Elephant but they’ll remain committed to being cruelty-free. Drunk Elephant is not sold in-stores in China and has no plans to.

Heroine NYC Beach Babes Nail Polish Collection Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

Heroine NYC recently released their Beach Babes nail polish collection featuring 4 gorgeous, fun, summery colors.

I have showcased and reviewed a number of Heroine NYC’s nail polishes on my blog before, their cruelty-free and vegan nail polishes are one of my faves because of their smooth, opaque, and long-lasting formula.

I also love how Heroine NYC nail polishes comes with a wider brush, making it super easy and quick to get the perfect yet effortless manicure!

Heroine NYC nail polishes are cruelty-free, vegan, 9-free, and cost $10/each.

Beach Babes – Heroine NYC

The Beach Babes collection includes 4 colors: Bubblegum, Son of a Beach, Heat Wave, and In a Haze.

The Beach Babes consist of four stunning summer shades that will make your nails pop! Match them to your bikini or outfit, whichever shade you choose – you’ll be asked about what you’re wearing!

Heroine NYC

Did you know, Heroine NYC gets their customers and community involved by asking them what their next nail polish colors should be named? And whichever name is selected, Heroine NYC will give a shout out by including the participants’ Instagram handle on the bottle! How cool is that?!

In addition, Heroine NYC is BIG on supporting animal protection organizations and other non-profits. Heroine NYC donates a portion of each sale to the Beagle Freedom Project at the end of each month.

Where to buy? on heroine.nyc website

Bubblegum – Heroine NYC

Bubblegum by Heroine NYC is a candy pink creme nail polish color.

Son of a Beach – Heroine NYC

Son of a Beach by Heroine NYC is a torquoise creme nail polish color.

Heat Wave – Heroine NYC

Heat Wave by Heroine NYC is a coral red nail polish color.

In a Haze – Heroine NYC

In a Haze by Heroine NYC is a purple blue nail polish color.

My Thoughts

I tried and reviewed each nail polish color individually and found they all have a very similar consistency and formula and they all lasted 3-4 days without chipping. In a Haze was my favourite color out of the collection followed by Bubblegum.

I found the colors in Heroine.NYC’s Beach Babe nail polish collection to be bright and vibrant but not so bright where they come off as being neon. Although Heroine.NYC released their Summer collection a little bit late in the season, I still think these colors are still wearable all year long and into the Fall/Winter season!
