First, i would like to clarify a few things.
1.) Younique is NOT cruelty free.
2.) I’ve heard several excuses by presenters, giving reasons as to why Younique has not pursued “formal certification” to be registered as cruelty free. Prepare yourselves, this is some ridiculous bullshit.
A.) It’s too expensive—I️ can’t even make this shit up. I’ve heard presenters give this as a reason over and over, and over, i shit you not. How the fuck does that even add up to these fucking people? They charge $40 for foundation, primer, concealer, etc, you get the idea.
B.) Younique has animal hair on some of their brushes, if they went cruelty free they would have to switch over to all synthetic makeup brushes.—oh. That’s interesting. Yep, that’s the ONLY reason younique has not gone cruelty free. Yeaaaaaahhhh. Riiiiiiggghhhht. Because that makes perfect sense. For fucks sake.
C.) Younique would rather spend the money on their presenters.(I saved the best one for last, you’re welcome)—hahaha. Say whaaaattttt? They actually believe this! I️ can’t even go on.
OK, moving on.
So, what is the real reason as to why Younique hasn’t pursued formal certification to be cruelty free? I have a few thoughts on this, not necessarily facts because, well, Younique will NOT say why. Making themselves look shady as fuck. Anyway, ahem…
Because it’s fun let’s talk about the reasons the presenters gave us:
1.) it’s too expensive—ok, for funsies let’s get into the nitty gritty details.
After doing some major research on the web:
A.) There doesn’t appear to be any set dollar amount on how much it costs to obtain a cruelty free certification. All the non-profits I️ came across only charge a one time fee, because they’re all non-profits it only covers what it would cost them to certify a company. Is it expensive? I don’t know.
Edit:I’m very unhappy with this part, and will do some digging!
2.) Younique has animal hair on some of their brushes.—Finally, a little bit of truth comes out of the presenters mouth, call me impressed! Let’s get nitty gritty!
A.) Yes, there is animal hair on some of their brushes. However, that is not the ONLY product that is not cruelty free. What other products you ask? I️ was waiting for you to ask! The following products are not cruelty free: 3D+ fiber lash mascara, epic mascara, lash serum, eyebrow palette, eyeshadows. Is that it? Well that’s not as bad as I️ thought! Hold on—i only looked at a few of the products ingredients. EVERY product, yep, every single one that I️ looked into is NOT cruelty free. Look for yourself, Younique lists the ingredients on every products page. Sorry presenters. Not sorry.
3.) Younique would rather spend the money on their presenters. A.) Ummmm no. You ARE brainwashed. Open up your god damn eyes and take a good look around. I️ can’t even continue with this one. My brain can’t even Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Can we please move on? Presenters make my poor brain hurt.
Going back to my opinions, thoughts, and whatever this is my blog I️ write what I️ want.
1.) Younique doesn’t give one single fucking shit about animals.
2.) The stupid company wants to make a loooootttttt of money. Animals? Fuck that, they better either get out of the way, or get run over by Derek Maxfield the CEO himself.
3.) True story: it’s well known that the founder and co-founder of Younique are Mormon. They take their religion very seriously. Next time there’s an annoying Mormon knocking at your door, stop and think that the founders children might be at your door. Yeah that’s right, eat that one for lunch.
I️ swear this is going somewhere.
Sooooooo Mormons apparently believe pretty strongly in kindness towards all animals.
“When animals were placed upon the earth, our Heavenly Father said that it was good. (See Gen. 1:25.) Since the creation of the earth, man has been given dominion over the animals. The seriousness of this charge is indicated in Joseph Smith’s inspired revision of Genesis:
“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. … And surely, blood shall not be shed, only for meat, to save your lives; and the blood of every beast will I require at your hands.” (JST, Gen. 9:9–11.)”
Well someone better let Derek Maxfield know that he’s living in sin! SOUND THE PRESS!!!
Ok ok ok, we’re just about done.
Just a few things:
1.) Dont buy from an MLM!
2.) be the change you wish to see in the world–let me interpret that for you: GO OUT AND BUY FROM CRUELTY FREE COMPANIES!
3.) But in all seriousness, do you really want to be wearing animal carcass on your lips or forehead? Shits nasty af.
