MY YouTube Intro Video!

Hi everyone! I am happy to announce I made my first ever youtube video which is a brief intro to myself and my blog, I hope you watch and subscribe. Thank you for all the support I have received and I hope you will continue to join me on my cruelty free journey! 🙂

Not So Cruelty-Free?

As you may already know some Cruelty-Free companies are owned by Parent Companies and majority of the time they own other companies who do in fact test on animals. While a company can still remain cruelty free this may not be evident enough for a consumer as she/he may feel portion of the sale is endorsing the parent company which test other products on animals.

Please feel free to share your thoughts, We all have our own opinions so I will state that how a consumer chooses to shop is soley based on her/his decision.

Tarte Cosmetics mini haul

image

Last week I received my package from Tarte. Those who aren’t familiar with the brand should know that they use all natural ingredients without using parabens (which is used in a wide range of cosmetics as perseveres however parabens can cause Estrogen-disruption which can lead to breast cancer) It is also cruelly-free which means they do NOT test on animals. Tarte along with a selected few cruelty-free/vegan brands can be found at Sephora or you can purchase TARTE products from their website.

I have used the Tarte Lights,Camera,Lashes in the past and loved the amount of volume it gave my lashes without weighing them down, I’ve also used the Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer and was pleased with my results so I figure I’d start to accumulate more from the brand.

Here’s a simple Pros & Cons based on each individual product:

Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation

Pros
Build-able coverage
Flawless finish
Healthy glow
Weightless

Cons
luminous finish, those with oily skin will need to touch up.

Light Weight

Cons
None

Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage Foundation

Cons
Cakey but only if you apply too much, alittle goes a long way.

Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

Pros

Cons

Maracuja C-Brightener (sample size)

Pros

Reduces dark circles

Cons
Heavy (feels heavy however once it starts to seep into the skin it isn’t very noticeable) best to use at night.
