While stores are closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, many retailers—including those that profit from the exploitation of animals—are looking to move business online. Sephora is one of them, and you can use your power as a consumer to show the company that you won’t stand for its support of the cruel mink eyelash industry.

Minks are clever semi-aquatic mammals who purr when they’re content and, like all animals, crave the freedom to live as they please. They’re unable to fulfill their most basic needs on fur farms, where they’re trapped inside cramped cages for their entire lives.

Refuse to support this cruel practice by wearing only cruelty-free false lashes. Not only are they affordable and accessible, they’ll also add the perfect touch to your dramatic or everyday look. Major beauty brands such as Urban Decay, Tarte, Too Faced, and hundreds of others have already ditched fur—urge Sephora to do the same.

Here are some of our favorite cruelty-free false lashes:
