Hi everyone! My name is Suzi and I created this blog as an honest resource for all things cruelty-free.

I have a passion for beauty and makeup, but I draw the line at animal cruelty. I’m a big animal-lover and I try to do my little part for them every day.

I created Cruelty-Free Kitty to have a complete and trustworthy spot for beauty junkies who don’t want to compromise their ethics for an eyeshadow palette.

I don’t censor myself in my posts and my reviews, and I hope you’re okay with that.

10 Random Facts About Me

If you want to get to know me better, this is a good place to start.

  • Humor is super important to me. My blog might be on the serious side, but there’s nothing I enjoy more than having a good laugh and funny people.
  • In the same vein, my favorite shows are The Office and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
  • I don’t have any tattoos, mainly because I’m indecisive and feel like I’d regret my choice later.

    Can you verify for me that Dr.Denese New York is cruelty free and does not test on animals. Her website says she does not yet I can’t find her listed on your list or the Bunny list.

    • Suzi

      I can’t find any reliable info. You might want to e-mail the company to verify though; I wouldn’t trust that claim when it comes to their ingredients.

  • Thanks so much! 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Love love love your blog Suzi. I’m now doing my best to only buy cruelty free products and have done a lot of investigation myself. I just wanted to mention that The Body Shop products were found to be sold in Beijing and Shanghai airports by our consumer action group in Australia, CHOICE. Here is the whole sorry tale http://www.choice.com.au/reviews-and-tests/food-and-health/beauty-and-personal-care/cosmetics/the-body-shop-sells-out-on-animal-testing.aspx

  • Just wanted to say that I am so happy I found this blog. I also love the clean layout. Beautiful work Suzi! : )

  • Thank you so much Uchy! 🙂

  • Thank you so much Jennifer!! Have fun in the US! xo

    I am not very sure about this blog. I am an independent consultant for Arbonne International as well as I belong to many organizations advocated to protect animals like Peta, Aspca, Humane Society and more. I am guessing why Sephora is mentioned in this website? this brand test on animals and it is not Peta approved. Also, Arbonne is mentioned in this blog as a company that is not completely natural, I sent an email to “Suzi” but never got an answer. I believe that Suzi gets pay for “clicks” leading to buy products, but Arbonne does not work like that, Arbonne does not sell per click, it sell only from consultants…. too many thinks I am worry about this website.

    • Hi Monica. I apologize for not replying to you email, but I get a LOT of emails from Arbonne independent consultants asking me to promote them. I don’t have anything against Arbonne, but I don’t support “MLM” brands personally so I don’t promote them on my blog either. I promote cruelty-free brands I support and love, and some links are affiliate links (I put a lot of work into this blog!).

    thank you so much Suzi for this incredible resource! I now never go beauty shopping without referencing this amazing blog of yours. I think most shoppers would choose cruelty-free if they knew which brands were/were not, but sadly most consumers are misinformed… I know I was until I found your awesome blog. Being discerning consumers and using our wallets to support the right brands is definitely a great way to make change happen 🙂

    Thank you so much Suzi, your webpage is a lifesaver. I’m going cruelty free and needed some recommendations. Out of the brands you’ve used or heard of, is there one that makes an amazing oil free liquid foundation? I’m also looking for a great compact powder to set my foundation. I’ve got sensitive skin that can be oily at times . Thanks for any recommendations 😊

    • What kind of coverage are you looking for? Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation is great for a semi-matte finish and medium-full coverage. Also check out Kat Von D Beauty’s setting powder! It’s loose powder though (not a compact).

      • K. Babbs

        Looking for light-medium coverage, something so I can still see my freckles 🙂

  • Please keep in mind a lot of brands I mention aren’t 100% vegan. They’re cruelty-free (don’t test on animals) but not free of animal ingredients. However most brands will have vegan options (you can check out my makeup guide). 🙂
