Beauty Review: Beauty Without Cruelty Mascara


It's always been difficult for me to find a mascara I really like since switching to cruelty-free & vegan beauty products & now that I've been trying to use only natural brands, that process has become even more difficult. So, when I was given the opportunity to try the Beauty Without Cruelty Full Volume Natural Mascara from a Vegan Cuts Makeup Box, I didn't have high hopes.

New Skincare Finds!


I recently had a little too much fun at Ulta, Whole Foods, & TJ Maxx finding some fun new skincare products to try! Most of what I found are new single-used mask sachets & sheet masks which I'm super excited to share! All the brands are cruelty-free & natural & all the masks are vegan!

My Pacifica Lipstick Collection!


If you want a high-quality, cruelty-free, vegan, & non-toxic lipstick at a drugstore price, look no further than the Pacifica Devocean Lipsticks!

My New Spring & Summer Handbags!


Confession: I love handbags. Like, LOVE handbags. Designer handbags are basically my kryptonite. Unfortunately, most mainstream designers don't have many (or any) vegan options. Surprisingly, this incredibly popular designer has quite a few cruelty-free options & I snagged a few for the warmer months!

Dupe Alert! Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter (Liquid)


With Becca Cosmetic's recent acquisition by Estee Lauder, you may be looking for alternatives to their vegan options (while Becca claims to maintain it's cruelty-free status, it's parent company is a well-known animal tester). One of their most popular products is their liquid Shimmering Skin Perfecter - essentially a liquid highlight. Not only is it possibly not cruelty-free, but it is full of toxic chemicals. I received this Kani Botanics Galaxy Milk Illuminating Beauty Oil in a Petit Vour box & I think it's a great replacement!

Close-Up & Swatches: Jersey Shore Lip & Cheek Ruge (Red Hibiscus)


As the weather warms up, I reach for lighter makeup products. One such product I've been enjoying lately is the Jersey Shore Cosmetics Red Hibiscus Lip & Cheek Rouge.  This is a lightweight lip tint that can also be used as a cheek color. This shade is probably too deep as a blush for light & medium skin tones, but I'm sure it would look beautiful on deeper complexions!

Petit Vour May 2017 Beauty Box!


If you're interested in luxury beauty products free of toxins, animal testing, & animal products, you must check out Petit Vour! Not only are they an online shop, they have this steal of a beauty box - for only $15/month, you can get 4-5 beauty products sent to your door! Let's check out what I got in the May 2017 box!

Close-Up & Swatches: Emani Eyeshadow Trio (Feeling Blessed)


I recently posted a makeup tutorial featuring this Emani Eyeshadow Trio in Feeling Blessed which is a beautiful cool-toned matte neutral trio. 

My Pacifica Lipgloss Collection


If you're looking for an affordable, drugstore lipgloss that is cruelty-free, vegan, & non-toxic, I highly recommend the Pacifica Enlightened Gloss

Vegan Cuts May 2017 Beauty Box!


It's time to check out the cruelty-free goodies that were included in the May 2017 Vegan Cuts Beauty Box! If you aren't familiar with Vegan Cuts, they are kind of like a cruelty-free & vegan Amazon in that they sell discounted cruelty-free & vegan beauty, wellness, food, & lifestyle items. Not to mention, the amazing subscription boxes! For about $20 a month (more or less depending on the duration of your subscription), you can get 4-5 full-size & deluxe sample size beauty products - all free from animal testing & animal products. While not everything is natural, they are finally leaning in that direction, which is so exciting! So let's see what came in this month's box!
