My Cruelty Free “Travel” Makeup Bag!

If you saw my InstaStories this past week, a) thank you for watching my nonsense! and b) youโ€™ll know that I went on a short road trip with my dad. It was just overnight, but I still over-packedโ€ฆespecially with the makeup. ๐Ÿ˜‰ To be fair, I did use almost everything, but itโ€™s a lot. Since I only took things that I love, I thought I would share the contents of my โ€œtravelโ€ makeup bag with you! Iโ€™m skipping skin care as thatโ€™s a whole post unto itself; weโ€™re just sticking to the makeup here.ย Like I said, thereโ€™s a lot so we best get to it! ๐Ÿ˜„ย (Links to reviews and related posts in pink.)

Cruelty Free Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations – Spring 2017

Itโ€™s the second most wonderful time of the year for those of us with massive Sephora addictions! ๐Ÿ˜ Thatโ€™s right! The Sephora VIB Sale is almost here!!! I thought I would go through some of my favorite cruelty free products available at Sephora to give you a few recommendations while considering what new goodies to pick up this go-round. Real quick, the details as I understand them are that the sale runs from April 18th through the 24th for VIB Rouge members and your discount will be 15% off of everything as many times as you choose to shop in that time frame! Similarly, VIB member will receive 15% off between April 19th and 24th, while Beauty Insiders will be getting 10% off from April 20th through April 23rd. If youโ€™re one of these lucky Sephora Insider members, you should receive a card in the mail as well as a code in your email that can be used over and over again during the above mentioned dates! There has also been some fantastic cruelty free news: Tashina from Logical Harmony has confirmed that Smashbox and Marc Jacobs Beauty (not the fragrances) have been added to her cruelty free list (Stila‘s back too)!!! Discounts and new brands and cruelty free goodness, oh my! ๐Ÿ˜œ Enough silliness, letโ€™s get to the recommendations (linked to reviews if I have one). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tarte Color Splash Lipsticks & LIP SWATCHES – New VEGAN Addition to Rainforest of the Sea Line!

Not too long ago, Tarte introduced a new line and formula of lipsticks. I must say that if there is one area where Tarte has always left a bit to be desired, itโ€™s lipsticks. Well, enter the Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipsticks! Not to ruin my thoughts, but I think Tarte has finally come up with a fantastic formula that ticks pretty much every box! ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™m not going to lie, I was really drawn to these by the absolutely stunning packaging! ๐Ÿ˜ Itโ€™s Summer personified with the coolest, prettiest beachy vibe. Absolutely nailed the packaging! And the formulaโ€ฆwell, Iโ€™ve spoiled things a bit, but letโ€™s get into the nitty gritty details! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok. Weโ€™re back to the โ€œWhere the hell did March go?โ€ kinda Favorites introduction again. ๐Ÿ˜œ But seriously. What happened to March? It went crazy fast and it wasnโ€™t even that busy for me.

I havenโ€™t really been wearing a lot of makeup, but as always, that hasnโ€™t eliminated the favorites. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And as a friendly reminder, weโ€™re still in the midst of Ultaโ€™s 21 Days of Beauty which always makes March more excitingโ€ฆnot to mention there should be a Sephora Rouge/VIB discount coming up as well!!!
