My First Lime Crime Order! Lipsticks and Nail polish.

16 Dec

Hi everyone! About three weeks ago on Cyber Monday I put in my FIRST order at Limecrime.com ever. I was sooooo excited! It took three weeks to get here, I’m assuming because its the holiday season, and It was everything I hoped it to be. Even though some people choose not to order from them I didn’t find anything wrong. So if you’re considering ordering from them I suggest you do! they have great, vibrant vegan lip products, nail polish, eye shadows, and soon will be adding face products.

I ordered 2 Unicorn Lipsticks, 1 Velvetine, and 1 Nail Polish.

I ordered 2 Unicorn Lipsticks, 1 Velvetine, and 1 Nail Polish.

The first things I took out of the package were the two Unicorn Lipsticks. I bought Babette and Coquette. Both are very pale pinks, one with a slightly more peach tone and one more true pink. Each one was $18.00. A little pricey, but I think its worth it because they glide on and are fairly opaque.Β DSC_0014

Next I opened my Velvetine. I was VERY excited to open this because I have never used one before! I bought their Velvetine in Cashmere. It is a mix between grey and beige as Lime Crime calls it “Greige”. I feel like it also has a slight pink hue to it as well. I bought this for $20.00. Very pretty color! I will probably be buying more πŸ™‚DSC_0004

Last I ordered one of their nail polishes in Once in a Blue Mousse. I bought it for $8.00. Not bad. I’m not going to show you a swatch because I already have nail polish on and It looks like its opaque and shows up the same as it is in the bottle.DSC_0013If you want to know anything else about these products let me know! I have quickly fallen in love with this brand and I plan to order from them again soon. Whats your favorite lime crime product? I’d love to know!

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™‚

DSC_0783LOTUS WEI

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!

DSC_0787FLOSS GLOSS

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™‚

PACIFICA Indian Coconut Nectar- Take Me There Set

29 Apr

Hey everyone! So the snow here in Maryland is gone (YAY)… but the rain seems to keep coming! So to keep our minds off the weather, here’s a quick review! I have been wanting to try some pacifica things for a while and saw these kits were on sale at ULTA for $13.00 (originally $18.00). They only had a few scents so I picked up the Coconut nectar trio. The kit includes a body butter, a roller ball perfume, and their Color Quench Nautral Moisture Slim lip tint. Overall I think its a really nice kit if your not use to the brand.

pacificaStarting with the body butter. It has a nice texture but it seems to dry out my hands after an hour or two, then againΒ I kind of expect that from a basic scented lotion. It smells pretty nice… to other people! When I put it on I noticed a weird smell behind it but my mom didn’t seem to notice it. I guess it depends on the person. The roller ball perfume is my favorite! It doesn’t have that same smell as the lotion and it seems to last a decent amount of time for a roller ball. Then the lip tint is nice. The colors of the tints depend on which scent you buy, this one has a darker nude color to it and looks really nice. It moisturizes just as well as any other balm, but this ones cruelty free πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed this review! It’s always nice to introduce yourself to cruelty free brands. Some people run away from them when their products are just as good as anyone else! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Tarte Cosmetics Review

27 Dec

For Christmas I got several things from Tarte. I love them ALL! This brand is by far my favorite brand ever… I have never owned an item by them I didn’t like. I will be reviewing several things from tarte, such as the Tarte Of Giving kit, the Airbuki Brush, Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, and the Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. All are products I use everyday because I just cant get enough!

Tarte Of Giving Collectors set and Travel Bag: This kit has everything you would ever need, really! First of all this kit comes with 20 limited edition eye shadows, some shimmery and some matte. These eye shadows are long lasting and well pigmented. Next it comes with 8 Maracuja lip glosses. I have been wearing these lip glosses non-stop! they are SO pigmented and stay on well. The kit also comes with 5 minis. a mini maracuja oil, a mini maracuja brightening eye treatment, a mini lights cameras lashes mascara, a mini limited edition blush in Memorable, and a mini cheek stain in Flush. all GREAT products and the mascara is to die for! all the makeup comes in a cute purple bag that doubles as a behind the door hanging makeup bag! Best Products Ever!

tarteAirbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush: This is the softest line of synthetic brushes! this brush is fantastic for buffing powder into your face. It grabs all the product and evenly distributes a thin layer onto your face with an even coverage. So if you need a new powder foundation brush I suggest this one!

tartepowderbrushAmazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation: I have been using a Maybelline powder foundation for the past few months and all it did was cake up and look ghostly… But THIS foundation feels like nothings there! It has a nice even coverage with a small amount. I’m in the color Fair Honey, which is the lightest color. It has a slightly pinkish undertone so it doesn’t show up paper white. πŸ™‚

tartepowderMaracuja Creaseless Concealer: OK. So this stuff IS creaseless IF you remember to set it with a powder! Once you put it on it wont come off until you take it off! It is a waterproof, long-lasting concealer! I also love that they have a nice range of colors for different undertones.tarte concealer

As you can tell, Tarte Cosmetics has not failed me yet! everything is wonderful, feels good on your skin, and looks great in every light. So go out there and pick up some Tarte! even something small is a great product. ADDED BONUS: 100% Vegan πŸ˜‰

Lifestyle Change!

11 Dec

Hey guys! WOW I haven’t been on here for QUITE some time! I have been very busy lately and will start posting more frequently again! Anyway I have been vegetarian for a few months now, Since August, and have been loving how I feel inside and out from a slightly cleaner diet. A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to make an even bigger change and go vegan and I have been loving it!

Veganism is where you don’t eat or buy anything that has to do with animals. That means no meat, dairy, eggs, or other animal byproducts in your diet. That also means no leather, suede, fur, or animal byproduct in clothing or cosmetics. Hence the term “Cruelty free”. Going vegan is different for everyone. Some people do it for their health, the animal, the environment, or all. I am going vegan for all there reasons. I’m not here to “shame” you for eating meat or dairy, just letting you know what I have been up to and let you know what it is is you haven’t heard of it. If you are interested in going vegan, or maybe just doing “Meatless Mondays” you are still making a difference.

If you want to be more informed on veganism I suggest you watch a documentary called Vegucated. It is a short film you can get on amazon where three non vegans decide to go vegan for 6 weeks. The reason I like this film is because its not one of the more serious ones and it really does “Vegucate” you. I will still be posting a bit of non vegan items because i’m not just going to throw away everything I have that does test on animals. I will be officially vegan for new years (my new years goal) and will start posting cruelty free stuff then. Thank you SO MUCH for reading this! (I was not told by anyone to talk about this film! just my personal opinion!)

P.S. Oreos are Vegan!! πŸ™‚

Lush Bath Bomb Review!

I went into the LUSH store last week and decided to try the Rose Queen LUSH Bath Bomb, $5.25. I love everything LUSH and will be re-buying this scent because it leaves your skin SUPER soft, and I still smelled like roses the next day! A highly recommended item!
