Cruelty Free Cosmetics || NUDESTIX AND THE CHINA LOOPHOLE || Rivet Licker


A few weeks back, I touched on the subject of Cruelty Free (CF) Cosmetics, and how NARS decided to ditch their animal friendly stance to enter the Chinese market. I learned a few things after speaking with Jenny Frankel, co-founder of NUDESTIX, over DM. She gave me the information I wanted to communicate.


NUDESTIX are a Cruelty Free brand based in Toronto, Canada. Their products are sold exclusively in Sephora stores in Australia, and I met the team when I attended the Sephora Exclusive Brands Showcase last year. I have not been to subsequent events, but the whole conversation started there in 2016 when Super-Mum and Entrepreneur, Jenny and I were talking about animal testing and the Chinese market.

Ardell Pro Brow Defining Kit || ORIGINAL vs DARK SWATCHES || #RivetReview

I've recently gotten into brow powders, thinking they might offer a more subtle, and longer lasting brow, but finding the right colour is a pain! My eyebrows are black, cool toned black. Dark brown doesn't cut it, and eyeshadow or eyeliner is usually too strong.


Ardell are known for their lashes, but it was the expansion into the brow domain that got me intrigued to pick these up!
