Sorry to be such a downer on a Monday morning. When I read the headline on Temptalia's beauty blog, I nearly choked on my coffee.

After all the "blah blah blah" about backing out of China because of animal testing, they sell the company to L'oreal. I am so disappointed. I have loved their products from the beginning but I'm going to have to file for divorce from their eyeshadow & liners now.

So basically, most mainstream cosmetics are now owned by either L'Oreal or Estée Lauder, the two most heartless, soul sucking companies of all.

Sh!t. I switched over to a bunch of their stuff after Smash Box started testing in China.... I can't believe I have to find a new foundation *again* for the second time in less than 6 months! Arg.

This is actually what gets me the most, is this is the second time this year. Their apology and re-commitment to being cruelty-free was pretty much bullshiitake, especially if you consider how long the companies have been meeting about this and working it out before the announcement.

God dammit I love my Naked Foundation. :(

Well now there are officially no brands I like that I can buy at a brick-and-mortar store. I want to cry.

Fortunately, when the whole China debacle happened I ordered a bunch of Fyrinnae shadows and am happy with them, although there's a bit of a learning curve on loose shadows versus pressed. But I haven't found a good replacement for UD's eyeliner, and the Lush Lash mascara is the only one I can use on my bottom lashes without it smudging and giving me raccoon eyes. This sucks so hard. Forking L'Oreal.

WHAT

This is like the time I broke up with my girlfriend and then I dated someone else for a month and then we got back together and then we broke up twice a week for months and then we finally broke up for real. Emotional forking roller coaster!

(Yes I value hot pants lipstick as much as romantic relationships.)

Hey, the perfect lipstick is as hard to find as a good man or good woman!

Isn't this a bit of hyperbole? There are certainly worse corporations in the world than these two.

Sure. It was meant to be hyperbole. But they are two of the biggest cosmetic testers, which is what I meant.

Totally...god my mineral foundation whatever I have from Urban Decay is almost gone and I have no idea how to go about choosing that shiitake online. Uh oh.

I mean, I don't know yet if I'm dead set against buying UD yet, assuming their products still won't be tested on animals. I still buy Tom's of Maine toothpaste...

L'Oreal makes me confused sometimes anyway. They have that shampoo that's labeled as vegan. And I think some people are like, we should support their efforts, and then other people are like, yeah, but they're evil...

I think they own Pureology and Pureology was very much like, we're still not testing on animals! OPI was similar and reconfirmed with Peta they're not testing, so I use them sometimes.

Some Hourglass foundation is labeled vegan and super nice, but also SUPER spendy. I treated myself to a couple of things because I had a coupon, and I was still like, oh shiitake! This better be NICE. And it was.
