Brief Update & Brief Accutane Intro

I’m trying. I’m really trying to get a post up this week, but there’s just no time. It’s been so swamped that I have to prioritize and cleaning cat boxes has to come before a standard blog post with pictures & all the goods (though I’d rather do the latter 😂). I haven’t had the time or energy to even think about a topic, let alone write a post. So here we are. I thought I would just update you on life in my little insignificant world. I may need to be a bit vague in spots, but here we go…!!!

April’s Cruelty Free Beauty Favorites!

Wow! What a month April was! I feel like so much has happened, but I couldn’t even begin to remember what. 😂 It’s been a good makeup month, if for no other reason there was the Sephora VIB Sale as well as a ton of Friends and Family sales…not to mention I am an Ulta Platinum member which gave me a 20% off coupon too! I guess not a great month for makeup lovers’ wallets! 💸 The stuff I’ve acquired is still being tested out (admittedly I have yet to even touch a lot of it!), though there is at least one that’s already a favorite. 😉 So without further ado, let’s get to my Cruelty Free Favorites for the month of April!!!

My Cruelty Free “Travel” Makeup Bag!

If you saw my InstaStories this past week, a) thank you for watching my nonsense! and b) you’ll know that I went on a short road trip with my dad. It was just overnight, but I still over-packed…especially with the makeup. 😉 To be fair, I did use almost everything, but it’s a lot. Since I only took things that I love, I thought I would share the contents of my “travel” makeup bag with you! I’m skipping skin care as that’s a whole post unto itself; we’re just sticking to the makeup here. Like I said, there’s a lot so we best get to it! 😄 (Links to reviews and related posts in pink.)

Cruelty Free Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations – Spring 2017

It’s the second most wonderful time of the year for those of us with massive Sephora addictions! 😝 That’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 you’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! 😜 Enough silliness, let’s get to the recommendations (linked to reviews if I have one). 😉

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, it’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! 😆 I’m not going to lie, I was really drawn to these by the absolutely stunning packaging! 😍 It’s Summer personified with the coolest, prettiest beachy vibe. Absolutely nailed the packaging! And the formula…well, I’ve spoiled things a bit, but let’s get into the nitty gritty details! 😉

Cruelty Free March Favorites 2017!

Ok. We’re back to the “Where the hell did March go?” kinda Favorites introduction again. 😜 But seriously. What happened to March? It went crazy fast and it wasn’t even that busy for me. I think it must be because I got sick at the very beginning  of the month…I think it was March. 😄 But on to the point – it’s March Favorites time!!! 🎉 We’re gonna go through all the things I’ve been loving this month (at least the things that I haven’t mentioned recently). I haven’t really been wearing a lot of makeup, but as always, that hasn’t eliminated the favorites. 😉 And as a friendly reminder, we’re still in the midst of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty which always makes March more exciting…not to mention there should be a Sephora Rouge/VIB discount coming up as well!!! If you missed the cruelty free steals happening at Ulta, I have a post detailing them all here. But let’s get back to the point and just jump into the crème de la crème from March! 😆
