4 cruelty-free blushes

Hi Everyone, I hope you are doing well. I know I said it before but I finished uni and I am finally looking for a job in London. It has been two very exciting years of non-stop working, studying, writing and I am more than ready to embrace new challenges. I will (hopefully) be on my way to interviews very soon and  today, I decided to have a look at my makeup collection. Looking the part is important but wearing a blush to mask my anxiety, a must. Below you will find the blushes I have been loving and wearing all summer long. They are all cruelty-free, pigmented and rather cheap. PS: This is not a first impression, the blushes have been used over and over again and may appear dirty. They are not, it’s just love.

Is Fenty Beauty cruelty-free?

Hi Everyone, I am back! After 2-3 excruciating months of dissertation writing, I finally have time to write for the blog. I want to thank all of you for answering the survey and not giving up on me. It may not mean much to some of you but the fact that the blog still gathered over 1300 visitors per month whilst inactive blows my mind. Now on to the fun stuff. If you are interested in the beauty world, you’re on social media or simply a fan of Rihanna, you know that her makeup line dropped at the end of last week. I did not plan on buying anything at first. The highlight of her makeup line seemed to be the impressive foundation’s range which I haven’t been wearing for months. However, whilst at Sephora in Paris, I couldn’t help but be attracted to the packaging and decided to check out the displays. Naturally, I then took to google and Twitter to find out if Fenty Beauty is cruelty-free and here is what I found: …

THE BODY SHOP HAUL – LIPS & HAIR

Hi Everyone, Christmas came early this year. As you all know, I am a post graduate student and I work at the same time. It is rare to find the time to spoil yourself when you are busy with uni and work but when I do, I go all the way. I recently got 40% off with The Body Shop for Black Friday and I couldn’t resist. I will not show you everything that I bought as a good half of the order was also gifts for my friends but I purchased quite a bit for myself. If you did not already know, The Body Shop is 100% cruelty-free and the brand displays the whole list of their vegan products on the website. On to the fun stuff now! I got a couple of bath products but the things I am the more excited about are the lips and hair products.
