Eye-liner is a must in my make-up bag, so when I recently ran out and went into total panic mode, I found something new and great! At the nearest Sephora they had this Buxom Eye Duo, a black eye-liner and gray eye shadow for just $30. I put it on in the morning, on the way to work, and after a long day of work and meeting up with friends after, I came home looked in the mirror and was shocked. For the first time ever, my eye-liner looked the exact same as when I left in the morning! THIS NEVER HAPPENS
Of course immediately after this, I had to check if it’s an ethical product. Turns out, Buxom is from Bare Escentuals. PETA has sited on their site that they do not test on animals. But does it stop there? – Nope
They also have a social compliance policy where they comply with the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act. They specifically address issues of fair wages and human trafficking. They also are involved in several philanthropic initiatives.
On the BE site it states “Bare Escentuals is dedicated to conducting its business with integrity and the highest standard of ethics and seeks the same level of integrity and ethical standards with its vendor and supplier partners. Bare Escentuals will continue to assess all risks and opportunities to ensure that its approach will prevent any injustice or violation of human rights within its supply chain.”
So the verdict – this Eye-Duo package holds more value than meets the Eye
