    Default Cruelty free mineral makeup

    So I just found out that MAC is tested on animals. Can anyone recommend a good cruelty-free powder foundation with good coverage that is easily available in Australia and affordable? I often just wear powder over moisturiser/sunscreen, hence wanting good coverage. Just bought natio and it's not quite right for me. The PETA list is long and I could spend all day going through all the brands with no idea if they are any good. Any help most appreciated!!

    I use Natio but used to use Amina. Google them. Online only & a bit pricier but beautiful products. I think Nude by Nature are cruelty free as well. It didn't agree with my skin. I found www.ethical.org.au really helpful when looking for new brands.

    I was sure that Body Shop was owned/taken over by Loreal who DO test on animals..

    ETA: Just re read that Natio doesn't work.. What about Arbonne? I've heard great things and they are reasonably priced

    I have the "Shop Ethical" app and it's great. It does state that the Body Shop is a no-no because it's partly owned by Loreal. Natio and Face of Australia get the tick.
