Ok. We’ve survived the Best Cruelty Free Complexion Makeup of 2017, so now for what I usually find slightly more exciting – Eyes and Lips! I’m not going to dilly dally as we still have a lot of great makeup to cover, so without further ado, I bring you the 2017’s Best Cruelty Free Makeup for Eyes and Lips!
Bring out the confetti because it’s time for the fun stuff – Cruelty Free Makeup! I’m gonna keep this to a minimum because there’s a lot that goes into making up one’s face…and it takes a while. 😄 We’re only going to start with complexion products to prevent this from taking days to read. This was perhaps the strangest part of makeup for me in 2017 because, as some of you will know, I started on Accutane mid-year. That means that I started the year with combo-to-oily skin and ended it with super dry, sensitive and dehydrated skin. Not surprisingly, a lot of what worked at one point was awful during the other half of the year. And if I’m being 100% honest here, I’m still hunting for a foundation that looks ok on my dry skin. Actually if I’m fair, I have never found the perfect foundation ever. It either doesn’t exist or I just hate the look of my skin! 😄 Alright. I’ve already gone on a tangent. Let’s just get into some of the Best Cruelty Free Makeup Products for Complexion from 2017!
Alright. This post is incredibly late. It’s been written for weeks but for some reason or another, I have had the worst time getting pictures taken for it. I still want to post it because a) I still love everything mentioned, and b) I have nothing else to post anyway. Whomp, whomp, whomp. So I hope you still enjoy my ridiculously late Monthly Favorites post! Here goes…!
Yet another month has come to a close, which means it’s time for Cruelty Free September Favorites!!! Honestly September flew by so quickly that I don’t even remember it beginning. I have essentially spent the month continuing physical therapy (it’s surprisingly time consuming!) and taking one or more cats to and from the vet. Everything is ok…I will probably have a post giving more detail on life in general soon…but the vet has been needed thanks to my little Emerson (she’s 9 now so not so little!) being diagnosed with diabetes. Fortunately at this point, her A1C (sugar level) is at a good level and she seems to be doing well. Between all of that and continuing to test products for my now dry, Accutane battered skin (it’s actually not that bad, just a definite change), I don’t have a lot of genuine favorites again this month. I’ve been trying a number of things without definitive opinions which I’ll mention towards the end, but not a lot of genuine stand-out “favorite” products. I also have one product that I’ve had a bit of a change of heart about too! Not really a fail, just not as great as I remembered. So, with all that said, let’s get into the few Favorites that I do have! 😆
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!!!
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.)
Believe it or not, this January Favorites is not going to start with an “I can’t believe how fast the month went” kind of intro. It was a loooong ass month. I feel like New Year’s was months ago now. In fact, I can’t remember what the hell I loved at the beginning of the month because it feels so long ago! But I’m gonna do my best. I actually don’t have a lot of favorite beauty products for January because I’ve been trying a lot of the new things. It hasn’t been all bad, I just don’t feel they’ve had a fair test yet. So my list is not very long, but I have a few things to mention…plus another non-beauty item! 🎉 And instead of dragging on further, I’m gettin’ down to business. 😜
