CULT NAILS Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Lets Get Dirty CULT NAILS Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Nail painting is one beauty ritual I really don’t enjoy, mostly because I’ve just never gotten good at it. I don’t have the patience for streaky or uneven formulas – I’d rather just skip nail polish or go with a sheer nude. I ordered Let’s Get Dirty ($12) on a whim, after seeing it on Temptalia. It’s my first Cult Nails polish and, after trying this formula, I think I may have found the answer to all my nail polish frustrations.

ELLOVI Butter

ellovi body butter ELLOVI Butter

I recently won Logical Harmony’s Ellovi Butter giveaway. Before winning, I had seen Tashina’s Butter review and made a mental note of it. When it comes to body moisturizers, for me – the more hydrating, the better. I love rich body butters and oils and slather them on most days after showering. I’m also a big supporter of small businesses, so I was thrilled when I won this. It’s something I would’ve purchased on my own. CONTINUE READING…

URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Beauty Balm | An Unexpected Favorite + A Giveaway

UD BB Cream 565x395 URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Beauty Balm | An Unexpected Favorite + A Giveaway

Beauty balms. It’s a topic we could discuss forever. We have BB Creams, CC Creams… and apparently, as I learned on Lily of Chloeash’s Instagram, now there’s DD Creams.

I’ve never been particularly interested beauty balms, mostly because of the level of marketing hype that seems to surround them, at least in the US. But after receiving a sample of the Urban Decay Beauty Balm, I was pleasantly surprised. CONTINUE READING…

ZuZu Luxe Oil Free Liquid Foundation ZuZu Luxe from Gabriel Cosmetics | Oil Free Liquid Foundation Swatches (Full Line)

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…

Lippy Girl Lip Gloss Balm Shimmer Lippy Girl Extra Virgin Lip Gloss, Lip Love, ShaZam Shimmer

Here at Buying Cruelty-Free, lip balm is a serious topic. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know that I’m always on the hunt for good ones. My lips are naturally dry and in the winter, the situation is abysmal. Cracking, peeling, bleeding – not to brag, but I get it all. As such, I was thrilled when Lippy Girl founder Darcey Diehl sent me three moisture-packed products: the Lip Love Lip Conditioning Stick, ShaZam Lip Shimmer, and the new Extra Virgin Lip Gloss.
