Animal Curelty Free and/or Vegan Make up


Oh what a path I have found myself on! As an animal lover the thought of furry babies being put through tests just for us to look pretty is a pet hate of mine. Personal thing. So I do favour my own make up to be animal cruelty free and it is Vegan that's a added bonus too. 



For years I have used brands that I did not fully know ,were still testing on animals for the sake of make up. The only brand I knew that was cruelty free and accessible was good old BarryM, but I some times don't like the stuff they come out with or do not have the shade am after . However I do these days use them as my basics, Foundation , powder, eye-liner, Yuno the things I use for that everyday make up. OH and of course the nail paints or nail polish is a winner too. As its affordable and easy to get hold of too. More so when it something your going to run out, most of all . So I want to be able to pick it up easy as and when.

However some times I want something that little bit more different or try a other brand with the same enthics so here is a few other brands I have tried myself with my thoughts on them and the products. Most of these are USA makes which is a tad annoying due to shipping. I do though have 2 UK online stores who can help us out with that. 

So here is a list of the brands I have discovered and what I think of them!

Kawaii Make up~ Jeffree star cosmetics vs Limecrime

Hey every one todays post is a Kawaii Make up post on both Lime crime and the new Jeffree Star Comestics. I really wanted to test out the JSC ones when I spotted them on Instagram ( Follow me!) and saw the shades and product looking a lot like Lime crime.
I really wanted to get both Prom night - the pink shade and the Redrum  Velour liquid  lipsticks to match up and compare with Lime crime Red Velvet and Pink Velvet but the Redrum came in fast and out fast too! They also have a shade like lime crimes utopia , I'm Royalty but am happy with utopia and really do not wear purple on the lips much.
It was also finding Grave Yard Girl on youtube doing her videos on these products that confirmed I wanted to get them too. ( Thanks Bunny!)
Soo... lets check em outs!


Well just by looking at the products you can see that they differ in packaging, Lime crime being thinner and longer and JSC looking shorter and chunky.


The brushes look pretty much the same and apply the same way too. How ever the Jeffree star one seems to have a shorter end to hold on to which was a bit of a pain to use but hey ho-.
 I quite like the design of the packaging box - being pink and all with cute stars with little J's in them.



Here are some picture to see the difference in the products.
 I find the both dry the same and apply the same. I find that JSC is more lighter to wear on the lips and Limecrime is more heavy in feeling. both are not that sticky either. Most most of all is the diffrence in colour, Well there is not really much of a difference to me, the main one is the fact Prom night is more electric pink and slightly brighter. It might be me but I found the pink velvet is slightly darker.


Here on this photo is Lime crime on the top lip and JCS on the bottom, I do not think you could tell them apart unless some one pointed them out to you.

Overall- I love both products. I like the fact JSC is slightly cheaper than Limecrimes Velvet, But I highly doubt that JSC's ones will make me change my mind from buying the other Velvets, I look forward to Lime crimes Riot shade coming out at the end of the month and really would like it!
I have to say they are very much the same and I love them both equally!

Later's cuties

Keep it Kawaii!
