Recently, MAC announced that in accordance with China’s laws dictating mandatory animal testing on cosmetics, MAC will no longer be cruelty free.
Beauty blogs are lighting up with this news. Kelly is very distraught and upset about this. Another blogger friend of mine pledges to no longer buy MAC.
What do you think? Do you feel angry about MAC’s decision? Do you think “it’s just business”? Do you think they should have tried another method?
Personally, as much as I have always admired MAC for being cruelty free, I’m not surprised by this news. MAC is like any other company- they want to expand their business and sell as much as they can to as many consumers they can reach. I’m not a MAC fanatic, but whenever I bought their products, I felt better knowing I was supporting a cruelty-free brand. Now I won’t have that feeling anymore.
