They say that well-groomed brows are what completes any makeup look. That could be a casual day of a CC cream and mascara or a full face of glamorous makeup. Personally, I could not agree more. Having well-groomed brows goes a long way to making any look more polished. For a long time I have used brow pencils, powders, and waxes to fill in my brows and add a bit of color. When I found Pacifica Stunning Brows Gloss and Set at Target, I had to try it.
The Pacifica Stunning Brows Gloss and Set is a mascara sized tube with a mascara like wand. There are two shades available – a golden brown or clear. Because I naturally have dark brows, I purchased the clear formula to try out.
Claims: “Get the stunning brows you’ve always dreamed of, keep them in place all day and add a touch of gloss with this unique natural formula that gives the appearance of thicker, healthier brows.”

Earlier, Logical Harmony brought you an update about the South Korea Animal Testing Bill Still in Progress. There has been a lot of online press that makes it sound as if this ban on animal testing is farther along in the approval process than it really is. Logical Harmony has been working closely with Humane Society International to make sure you get the truth about the situation about animal testing in South Korea.
Currently, animal testing is still legal in South Korea. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs proposed a phase out of animal testing for finished cosmetic products and ingredients as part of its draft Five Year Plan for Animal Welfare. This caused a lot of media to celebrate that animal testing has been banned. But the truth is that the plan has yet to receive backing from other ministries and is far from being put into effect. Animal testing has not been banned in South Korea. While steps have been taken towards a ban, there is still a lot of work to be done before we celebrate.
Humane Society International is currently in South Korea and meeting with decision-makers there to help turn this proposal into something that is planned.

Working towards an animal testing ban in South Korea has been a huge focus for Humane Society International (HSI) this year. They are currently in South Korea to speak to policy makers about the proposed draft bill and encourage them to make the best decisions for animals.
This press release was very important for me to share because I have been seeing a lot of reports stating that a ban has been approved and a timeline has been put into place. The truth is that a proposed bill has been drafted and nothing has been approved or confirmed.
HSI IN SOUTH KOREA FOR TALKS ON COSMETICS ANIMAL TESTING BILL
LONDON (2 March. 2015) – In response to recent reports that South Korea has confirmed a date for a ban on animal testing of cosmetics, Humane Society International issues this statement:
No bill has yet been published or finalised in South Korea and so news releases suggesting otherwise are premature. A draft bill has been proposed, which Humane Society International has seen, but it is still in the discussion phase and in our opinion requires some additional work in order to deliver the robust ban on all cosmetics animal testing that Korean consumers want to see.
HSI’s Global #BeCrueltyFree Campaigns Director Claire Mansfield is in Seoul right now meeting with the lead bill sponsor and other policy makers and regulators, in order to progress the bill in the right direction. It is far too early to welcome a bill that is not yet complete and that does not yet meet all the objectives of ending animal testing in the cosmetics industry. Welcoming a bill too early is also counter-productive, making it more challenging for those of us engaged in improving bill language to actually achieve the best result for animals.
It is important to spread awareness that the bill has not yet been passed. This keeps the pressure on the decision-makers in South Korea to work towards creating a bill that really makes a change in regards to animal testing. HSI is there to help the decision-makers in South Korea make sure that the final draft of the bill is one that will really make a positive change for the animals.
As consumers, we want these bills to be passed to not only save lives, but also to show other decision-makers world-wide that these bans need to start happening in more countries.
