FACE Atelier Ultra Foundation ranks among the very best foundations I’ve tried. With their background in professional products, FACE Atelier consistently impresses me with their quality, innovation, and commitment to creating makeup for every skin tone.
This is one of a very small number of foundation ranges that I can confidently say has a match for everyone. CONTINUE READING…
Today I want to share with you a lovely long-wearing powder blush I received from IT Cosmetics – their Vitality Cheek Flush Blush Stain in Matte Sweet Apple. This vibrant pink-red gives a believable just-out-from-the-cold flush that lasts throughout the day. CONTINUE READING…

Cruelty-free foundations. It’s the topic I get most questions about and traffic from. As a foundation fanatic, I’m always excited to share my recommendations. But of course one of the most crucial factors in selecting a foundation is color match. And many Leaping Bunny certified brands simply aren’t widely available in stores, which can make determining your correct shade difficult.
To help, I’m posting swatches of the full color ranges of five cruelty-free foundations: ZuZu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid, FACE Atelier Ultra, 100% Pure Healthy Skin SPF 20, Mineral Fusion, and Gabriel Cosmetics Moisturizing Liquid. All the foundations are Leaping Bunny certified and sold at White Rabbit Beauty. This is something I’ve wanted to do forever. I am so grateful to Jean at White Rabbit Beauty, who made this possible!
The first range I have for you is the ZuZu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid Foundation ($29.75). Zuzu Luxe is a line from Gabriel Cosmetics. It’s Leaping Bunny-certified, gluten-free, and vegan. CONTINUE READING…

The more I’ve learned about skincare, the more I’ve come to appreciate all-natural, chemical-free soaps. I’m a fan of Kirk’s Natural and Dr. Bronner’s, so when Kalliste Soap Shop offered to send me a sample for review, I was very interested to try it out. CONTINUE READING…
Last month, I teamed up with Christine at Makeup Guinea Pig and Liza at Makeup Matters to show you our Top 5 Favorite Brushes. This month, we’re keeping the the cruelty-free beauty blog collaboration going. Christine, Liza, and I are each sharing our Top 5 new products. These are products new to our collections, not necessarily the beauty world. I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with my list (thank you, Sephora VIB sale!) My Top 5:
1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light
2. NARS Blush in Madly
3. Zoya Nail Polish in Sabrina
4. NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover
5. IT Cosmetics French Boutique Luxe Blush Brush
As you’ve probably noticed, I’m in a bit of a FLOWER Beauty phase. So, naturally, the blog is too. And, honestly, what better time to experiment with soft pinks than the start of spring?
One of the lovely products FLOWER sent me is their Nail’d It Nail Lacquer in That’s Just Dan-De-Lion.
Today’s post is the first in a long overdue series I’m calling “Daily Reads.” The blogosphere is full of beautiful, creative, inspiring blogs. In each “Daily Reads” post, I will share a handful of blogs that I, quite literally, read daily. This first installment of beauty-blog-adoration features The Beauty Sample, My Lucite Dreams, Mostly Sunny, and Life’s Entropy. CONTINUE READING…
The new Eco Tools Face & Body Sculpting Brush is one of the more unique brushes in my collection. While designed for both face and body, I think most people would get more use from it as a body brush, given its size. CONTINUE READING…
