Anonymous asked: Yeah same tbh its really unnecessary in this day and age to test on animals, so many repultable companies don't like nars, Chanel, anastasia Beverly hill, limecrime etc! I know on the PETA website it says that Estée Lauder company test on animals and mac is under Estée Lauder, but with the eu laws it's hard to know? I would ask a mac employee but maybe they would tell me they don't anyway? I love mac but I would easily give up using the products if they do! I'll let you know if I find out!
Yes, please do!
Anonymous asked: Hey aisling! by any chance do you know if mac test on animals? online it said they do, but isn't there an EU law that products can't be sold in europe that are tested on animals? i haven't found anything online that would shed light on this and was wondering if you could! x
Hey! To be honest with you I’m not entirely sure either. They do have a policy that says they won’t test on animals unless it’s mandatory by law. China won’t sell beauty products unless they’re tested on animals (dumbbbbb) so they would have to test on animals for all products sold there. Whether they do here or not is another question but I’d be really surprised if they did and it would make me rethink using any MAC products at all 😐

thatsummerguy asked: Hey! I'm a 6th year student with the usual stress of choosing my cao courses and everything by this year. Could you please tell me what where the points for design of stage and screen and the annual fees? Thank you so much, your work is absolutely amazing 😊
Thanks so much sweetheart!
The year I applied the points were 850 but due to high demand they went up to 950 when LC results came out. So after getting maximum points in my portfolio (600) I had to get 350 in in Leaving Cert. Not sure what the points are now though so you need to check that yourself but my advice is to aim as high as you can!
They also chose a random selection of people to interview after handing in portfolios (pre Leaving Cert), me being one of them. The tutors have told us since that some people had great portfolios but were turned down based on their interview or vice versa. So being passionate about what you do is so important!
The annual fees are the standard €2750 but this (annoyingly) doesn’t include cost of materials. Most of the work you do will have to be self-financed so knowing how to make use of stuff you already have or how to root out cheap/free stuff is sooo handy. It does depend which strand of DSS you’re applying to but all of them do rely a lot on you supplying your own materials so don’t expect anything to be handed to you!
It’s a really tough course but I absolutely love it and to me it’s worth all the hard work and it’s made me who I am today! Sappy but true!
Best of luck with 6th year and if you have any more questions feel free to ask xo

Anonymous asked: do you have any lime crime lipsticks? if so, what do you think of them compared to mac lipsticks and do you know if you can get them in ireland? :) x
I’ve never tried their lipsticks - only their Velvetines which are incredible! You can’t buy them in Ireland but I ordered mine from Cocktail Cosmetics in the UK and I found their service great. Definitely go for it!
