There’s a new vegan mascara in town! This one comes from Milk Makeup and it is the CBD oil-infused (and appropriately named) Kush High Volume Mascara! To be honest, an oil-infused mascara always sounds problematic to me, but I’m all in favor of testing out a new mascara…especially one promising volume! And props to Milk Makeup for not only being an entirely vegan makeup line, but for aiming for the best of all worlds with this vegan mascara! So, have they created a new revolution in mascara, or is it just another gimmick destined to disappear tomorrow? Let’s find out!!!
If you’re like me and read a lot of beauty blogs or watch a lot of YouTube beauty videos, you surely have noticed that certain products are mentioned over and over and over again. They get a lot of buzz! One always wonders if those products are really as good as they seem, or if there’s just some kind of mob mentality keeping everyone enamored with the same so-so products. Always curious about the next best thing, I often find myself trying those “it” products of the moment just to see if they’re really everything my mind has made them out to be. Well, today we’re going to go through five of those very products that do indeed live up to every glowing review, each overly enthusiastic video and even, of all things, most of the products’ own claims! 🙂 Without further ado, I bring you 5 Cruelty Free Products WORTH the Hype!
Let’s face it. Makeup never looks complete without mascara. Am I right? You can be as minimal or dramatic with the rest of your face as you please, but until the mascara is on, things just don’t quite look finished. So I think it’s fair to say that the quest for the perfect mascara is an on-going mission for most of us. I can’t say that I have that exact holy grail level mascara to discuss today, but it’s definitely one that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying and would have to be up there with my top tier of lash boosters. So what is this wondrous new beauty? Get ready because it’s a mouthful! It’s the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Effect Mascara!
My first pick is actually a pencil eyeliner. I absolutely adore the NYX Slide-On Eye Pencils. They are every bit as good as the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencils, but for a fraction of the cost! They are available in tons of colors and can be used as eyeliner on the lid or under the lash line, or they can be placed on the upper or lower waterlines. These pencils can be smudged, but once they set, they stay where you put them…even on the waterlines! They are great for stockings because I think every girl uses a pencil liner at least once in a while for something. As for a color, you can’t go wrong with Black or Brown. The NYX Slide-On Eye Pencils are excellent drug store stocking stuffers that any girl can put to good use!
When I first saw the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, I felt that it looked and sounded quite promising. However, every tester that I saw looked really clumpy and disgusting, so I decided to hold off a bit on actually purchasing one because I feared that the mascara might start out just fine, but dry into a nasty mess over time. I was thrilled when I got my hands on a sample, and I immediately set about testing it out!
