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 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! 😆

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation – REVIEW!

NYX has brought out what I initially thought was a less expensive version of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops – a “coverage drop” that can be mixed with a product of your choosing to amp up the coverage. However after a bit more research and actually trying this new dropper foundation – which is all that it is, not a mixing agent – I can honestly say they have very little in common beyond the dropper bottle packaging. Though I do love the Custom Cover Drops, I may just like the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation even more! 😍 Let’s just get into the who, what, when, where, why of it, shall we? 😜

Cruelty Free Favorites – January 2017

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. 😜

The Skinny on Cruelty Free Brow Pencils from Anastasia, ColourPop & NYX

Over the years I have probably tried practically every method of filling in my sparse eye brows. Powders, pomades, thick pencil, thin pencils, mascaras, markers…you get the idea. I would have to say that probably one of the quickest and easiest way to fill in your brows is with a brow pencil. Though I often tend towards thicker, triangular shaped pencils (my favorite is the Hourglass Arch Pencil), recently I have been reaching for the super skinny type of brow pencils instead. Of course not all skinny brow pencils are created the same so I thought I would go through a few of the cruelty free offerings in various price ranges that are currently on the market – the Anastasia Brow Wiz, the NYX Micro Brow Pencil and the ColourPop Brow Pencil.

Building Blocks – Cruelty Free Basics to Making Up My Face!

I thought I’d share something kind of different today and go through the products I tend to use every day to start my makeup. These items don’t typically vary much. I may switch out concealers or try a new brow product, but the actual steps involved in getting to a basic better-than-I-just-woke-up kind of face are more or less the same. It’s from this point that I would start adding color to my eyes or just finishing up with some mascara and gloss to run out the door. Lip gloss? Who am I kidding? I rarely wear lip gloss…with July being an exception! 🙂 Anyway, I wouldn’t call this a quick holy-sh*t-I-missed-my-alarm kinda look, it’s more like the building blocks for anything else. Now that we’ve overstated the point, let’s get to some details! 🙂
