May VeganCuts Beauty Box First Impressions

 

Hey, beautiful people! My May VeganCuts Beauty Box arrived in the mail yesterday, so I thought I’d share my first impressions with you. I also included a few discount codes for anyone interested. Enjoy!

The Terre Mere Cosmetics blush brush ($34 value) I received is a 100% cruelty-free brush ergonomically designed to highlight your features for a subtle glow. I haven’t used it yet, but I’ll likely add it to my brush rotation. Very delicate, but dense enough to pick up mineral blush. I’m looking forward to trying it out. Until June 30, 2016, take 50% off your entire purchase with code “VEGANCUTS” at TerreMereCosmetics.com. Nice! Continue reading

Get The Look: Pretty in Pink

Good morning! I’m sharing a late post of my Mother’s Day makeup. “Tweak” is such a pretty baby pink, and blended out nicely. The black eyeliner ended up being a bit too harsh for what I was going for, but hey — it’s just makeup!  There’s always another day.

I was especially pleased with the color payoff of the eye shadow! From 7 in the morning until I washed my face at night, I experienced zero creasing. The color was just as vibrant 15 hours later! Now that’s impressive! I’m definitely no makeup artist, but I plan to post more makeup looks to demonstrate how nontoxic brands perform. The Silk Naturals brand is extremely affordable, with high quality products that deliver. I’m so happy Nicki Evans put me on!

Until next time!

Certain brands say different. These black-owned beauty brands were created by men and women of color, offering non-toxic, vegan, natural and/or cruelty-free options in skincare, cosmetics, and hair care. Have a seat at their table. You’re invited!
