LEFT TO RIGHT- Memento, queen, Digitalis, Super NSFW

Hi Everyone! I went to sephora yesterday and realized I haven’t bought a Lip Tar in quite a while… So I looked through and bought one and decided to swatch my favorites. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar is a 100% cruelty free and vegan brand. Everything I have ever tried from this brand has been a hit. I have four of my favorite colors to share with you.

Top corner to Bottom corner- Queen, Super NSFW, Memento, Digitalis.

Ok, I know this picture is a little dark, but its been a little rainy out and flash looked horrible. The color at the top corner is QUEEN. It is a VERY bright spring/ summer color. very pretty and bold. The second color is Super NSFW. It is a dark, metallic brick red. Great color for fall/ winter and stays on so long! I feel like this will look good on anyone! Third is my newest color, Memento. It is a slightly orange-y nude. This one is also great for fall and goes on nicely. And the last color is Digitalis which is a bright, pink-y lavender shade GREAT for spring! This color probably wont look great on everyone, so test the colors and see what works best for you. Overall these are some of my favorite lip products and they go on nicely and last a long time. I would love to see your favorite colors for fall!

October Vegan Cuts Box!

23 Oct

DSC_0780Hi Everyone! OK… I haven’t been on in a couple months…. I keep doing this! I have been so busy volunteering lately I haven’t found the time to blog! Now that kitten season is ending I don’t have as many fosters to take care of. SO, with that said here is my review of the October Vegan Cuts!

Not everyone knows about Vegan Cuts. Vegan Cuts is a monthly subscription box filled with vegan products either beauty or snack depending on what you choose. I cancelled my Ipsy subscription a few months back because I started feeling guilty receiving all those cruel products and I was getting terrible service! I am MUCH happier with this box and I am receiving much better service. ANYWAY, lets begin looking through πŸ™‚

The first product is this serum by LOTUS WEI in the scent Inner Peace. This is a really great brand who uses flower essences in serums, mists, and perfumes with a scent based off of what energy you want. I have been using this serum on my face every night for the past three nights. I honestly haven’t felt any more “inner peace” since using it, but it smells good and moisturizes my face!

Next product in my October box is Floss Gloss nail lacquer in Blood Suede and Tears. OK, I have only tried a few vegan nail polish brands and I honestly love all of them. But for some reason this one has a really great pigment! I wasn’t in love with the color at the beginning (reddish brown) but its growing on me! I didn’t swatch this color on my nails because i’m already wearing polish at the moment but I promise its very nice.

Third in the box is this AMAZING smelling coffee scrub. I’m a coffee scrub ADDICT. I use Frank coffee scrub twice a week and I’m very excited to try this one! Most coffee scrubs, in my opinion, all smell the same…. not this one. This one has vanilla in it and wow, it makes it that much better!

DSC_0793HYLUNIA

This is a Paraben and Phosphate-free vegan skincare sample set with four products. It comes with a mini Facial Cleansing Gel, Healing and Restoring Cream, Night Treatment, and Facial Day lotion. I have only been using these for a few nights since I got my box a few days ago! So far they haven’t dried me out or cause acne so I will continue to use up the products.

Overall I really liked my box. I pay $19.95 per month to receive 4-7 beauty products in each box. If you are making the switch to a vegan/ cruelty free lifestyle or you just want to try new products with less harsh chemicals this is a really good place to try them. If you have any vegan brand suggestions let me know! I always love to explore new brands πŸ™‚

Favorite Fall nails by Essie: The Lace Is on

30 Sep

Hey everybody! I hope you guys are having a good fall! I’m so happy to finally start to see the temperature drop, the leaves turn golden, and the fashion come out! I am in LOVE with the Essie fall collection right not. They go on nicely and have a great color. My favorite one is The Lace Is On by Essie. It is a shimmery purple polish and looks great on all skin tones. I put on my favorite base coat (OPI Nail Envy) then put two thick coats onto my nails. I prefer thicker coats of polish because I feel like it gives more of a “salon” look. Have fun playing around with the fall colors!eiise1eiise2
