Erin from Cosmetics

Besides the roundup, I’d also like to share a few questions I asked Erin from the great blog Cruelty Free Cosmetics. She’s one of the first people I started following on Instagram she’s really so nice and supportive to everyone, and even though she has a 6k following I still see her commenting and liking everybody’s stuff, so of course I wanted to know her thoughts about some things:

  • Can you give us a short introduction? Name, where you’re from, do you have any pets, whether you’re a full-time blogger or do you do something else offline for a living?
    My name is Erin and I am originally from Massachusetts (USA). Last month I moved to Alaska with my husband. We have one cat named Alice and she’s the light of my life. My blog is www.cruelty-free-cosmetics.com and I run an Instagram as well @Cruelty_Free_Cosmetics! Due to the move, I am currently a full-time
    blogger because I have not been able to get job out here yet.
  • How long have you been blogging and why did you decide to start?
    I started blogging in August of 2013 (when I first decided to go cruelty-free). I thought that blogging about my experience of going cruelty free would be a great way to document my journey, as well as help and inspire others to go cruelty free as well.
  • How long have you been cruelty free?
    I have been cruelty free since August of 2013.
  • Why do you think being cruelty free is important (I know, obvious question right?) and is it as hard as people think it is?
    Being cruelty free is SO important! I think that a lot of people choose to remain ignorant about what really happens “behind the scenes” to get their favorite big name lipstick. The animals cannot speak for themselves and they need our help. Testing on animals is totally unnecessary and cruel. By purchasing from companies that test on animals, you are supporting cruelty in a horrible way. What makes your favorite lipstick worth more than the life of an animal? I am not going to get into the graphic details, but please think about the animals next time you go product shopping! Being cruelty free is not nearly as hard as people think that it is. There are SO many resources out there to help you; a personal favorite of mine is Logical Harmony’s brand list. Going cruelty free is a process, but it’s also so much fun.
  • What is the one cruelty free product you can’t live without?
    This is a hard question! I have found so many cruelty free products that I have fallen head-over-heels for. If I had to pick just one item, I would choose 100 Percent Pure’s Black Tea Long Last Liquid Eyeliner. Not only is it 100% cruelty free and vegan friendly, it is all natural as well!
  • Any advice for new bloggers?
    Just have fun! Blogging shouldn’t be all about how many people are reading your posts. It should be something that makes you happy.

And on that note I leave you all for the week and wish you a great weekend!
