Made In Chelsea star Lucy Watson makes no secret of her love for animals. She is an ambassador for PETA, a committed vegetarian and even called out a date on the TV show for cooking her food that wasn’t vegetarian. That’s why it was so important to her that her new make up range, called Basic B***, was cruelty free.
Could Lucy be about to follow in the footsteps of fellow MIC cast member Millie Mackintosh, who launched a hugely successful clothing line?
The collection launches with three lipsticks, all priced at £18 and in extremely wearable shades like an everyday nude, a classic red and a version of Lucy’s much loved glossy peach shade, often seen on the show.
As an ambassador for PETA and a lover of animals, Lucy, 26, said it was important for her to develop a range that met these standards, so every cosmetic in her new line is cruelty-free.
Speaking about the new range, Basic B****, Lucy told FEMAIL: ‘After a year in the making, I couldn’t be more excited to finally introduce my own cruelty free make-up line. The name is a tongue in cheek reference to Lucy’s slightly spiky persona on the show.
‘I’m launching with three shades of lipstick; an everyday nude, my signature peach and a vibrant red; perfect for the festive season.
‘This has been a true labour of love and it was vital to me that the range is cruelty free so I’m delighted that Basic B**** are also approved by PETA. I just hope everyone loves the lipsticks as much as I do and I can’t wait to reveal new products in the New Year.’The outspoken model sensationally quit hit UK TV show Made in Chelsea in September.
A spokesperson said at the time: ‘After four amazing years on Made in Chelsea, Lucy feels that now is the right time to explore some other exciting opportunities and projects that she is passionate about.
‘Being part of such a successful show has been an incredible experience for her, and she wishes everyone involved all the very best for the future’.
The announcement came shortly after friend Frankie Gaff revealed Lucy’s taking time away from the spotlight to concentrate on her relationship with her boyfriend James Dunmore.Frankie told BANG Showbiz: ‘Lucy’s not going to be in the next series. At the moment she’s decided not to because she’s loved up.’The pair have been dating since early 2015 after meeting on the E4 reality show.Lucy’s last appearance on Made in Chelsea saw her clash with her best friend Stephanie Pratt after she ‘dumped’ her for her boyfriend-at-the-time Josh Shepherd.
We love any new products that are cruelty free and hope to see more products in Lucy’s animal friendly line- maybe her signature eyeliner?
