March 15th was a day I had been looking forward to for 6 months (more on that at another date) but also turned out a day I had been dreading for even longer.
March 15th was the morning I read from cruelty-free beauty blogger, Logical Harmony, that MAC tests on animals. They sell in China. China law requires animal testing. MAC told her in part that they only do animal testing ‘when required under the law’. Similar to what Estee Lauder recently told me (MAC’s parent company), and countless other companies who sell in China have stated.
I have no idea how long they have been selling in China, so maybe this isn’t that new. But this is the first I am hearing about it which is why I decided to address this since people have mentioned it to me a few times in the last week.
I felt this day would come, if only because I am a totally skeptical person, and they are my favorite brand. If something seems to good to be true, it usually is. When everything seems to be going just peachy, something always comes along to throw a wrench in it. You get the idea.
MAC is a brand I have been wearing for twenty one years. TWENTY ONE YEARS. Longer than some of you have been alive possibly. And we have a history.
