I have not posted in months because of work deadlines and life in general, but I had to post this because I am SO excited about it. Leaping Bunny has added Milani to its list of cruelty-free companies. (Click here to see Leaping Bunny’s complete list.)
Milani makes beautiful cosmetics for the face, eyes, lips, and nails. The absolute best nail polish I own is Milani Nail Lacquer in Strawberry Fields (a color not available on its site probably because it’s out of season). Compared with the OPI polishes I own, which are more expensive and generally considered to be “salon quality”, this Milani polish has better pigmentation (i.e., fewer coats) and durability.
But just as important as the products’ quality is the products’ availability. Which is the other reason to love Milani. Its products are available at drugstores and grocery stores nationwide and are priced to be affordable (we’re talking $3.99 for nail polish and $5.99 for lipstick). The more cruelty-free products available to most consumers, the better chance we have of voting with our dollars, which leads to legislation banned animal testing for cosmetics.
