So yesterday I wrote a post about my day shopping and researching cosmetics and body products that vouch to be cruelty free. I shopped at my favourite store LUSH which I ashamedly just started shopping at. - but am addicted for life now! The thing is I never really wear make up unless I go out (and even at that I wear very little especially when travelling), or go to work and so because of my job I decided to buy Jane Iredale 'The skin care make up' Glow time BB Cream which is completely cruelty free and actually treats yours skin as its on. It can last for days and days if you never took it off and still look flawless.
To add to my BB Cream, I threw away all my old make up, even full products, to start again guilt free. I came across ELF (Eyes Face Lips cosmetics) yesterday at Old Navy and today I have tried all the products as I was preparing myself for work.
-After my BB Cream I used three shades of the shimmer ELF eyeshadow ($13) which went on so nice and gave a lovely natural glow. The pallet had so many nice colours to chose from.
-Next I chose the eyebrow kit ($6) which even the cashier yesterday raved about, and I used the gel with the precision brush (included) and the brown brow shadow which filled in my brows so naturally and didn't look like I'd drawn them on like the way a lot of people's end up. lol
I then used the LUSH mascara which comes in a lovely dainty little bottle and is only $18. It was so smooth to put on and wasn't sticky or didn't make my lashes clump together. You can really tell the difference between products with chemicals and ones with only natural ingredients. I loved this mascara more than a lot I have used over the past few years.
Lastly I swept a pink shade of the ELF blush ($10) across the apples of my cheeks and applied the LUSH 'Latte' lip tint which I absolutely love. The lip tint and the eyeshadow a complimented each other with their shimmering autumn tones and the overall look was so natural but very elegant at the same time
I'm not one to 'cake' on the make up, and so applying products to my skin like this without feeling like I have make up on at all, is so refreshing. My skin feels light and the products mixed and matched perfectly together. ELF have brushes and make up setting mist etc available amongst many other products so I am going to go in search of them on my next shopping outing.
Comment below with any questions or let me know what you think if you have used any of their products.
