So I wanted to come over here and make a blog post where I could post photos and swatches a little bit easier than a photo. This is something new for me, so I welcome suggestions for improvement. =]
Cruelty-Free Cosmetics was started by Natallia after she went vegan and wanted more cosmetic options. She and I had prevously been youtube friends from her previous channel, so when she started her own line, I was very excited to try it! She sent me four pigments to try out:
|From left to right: Silver Taupe, Plum Potion, Spiced Cider & Heart of Gold|
The four colors she sent me are (descriptions taken from her webstore):
- Silver Taupe - Taupe, beige color with silvery sheen and incredible light catching highlights.
- Plum Potion - Pinky purple with cool undertones and glitter.
- Spiced Cider - Beautiful medium brown with hints of gold and a lot of shimmer.
- Heart of Gold - True gold tones with golden shimmer for extra sparkle.
They all run for $5.50 for a 5 g jar (and are occasionally on sale for $3 for 5g). All colors are vegan, cruelty free, and are free of parabans, chemicals and preservatives. All jars come with a label on top with the company name, as well as a label on the bottom with the color name, quantity and where the pigment came from. They come with a sifter with a sifter sticker to assure no pigment loss during shipping. All four pigments arrived intact.
To do my swatches, I grabbed the pigments and a few other items:
|In this photo: MSC Awesome Sauce, NYX j.e.p. in Milk & Benefit's Stay Don't Stray primer|
|Top to bottom: Primer, JEP, Awesome Sauce. L to R: Silver Taupe, Plum Potion, Spiced Cider & Heart of Gold.|
I will have a video review up soon with the pigments on in a look so that you can see them in action, but in the meantime you can check out my tutorial that uses Plum Potion!
FTC: These items were sent to me for consideration by Natallia, the owner of Cruelty-Free Cosmetics. This is my honest opinion.
