My Animal Cruelty free Make up list

So this  post here is my findings on companies who are Animal Cruelty free and / or have Vegan products on sale too. Many are swapping to products and companies who are against Animal testing.
Since last year I also decided to swap my make up to cruelty free as well as my house hold products which is still a on going progress. Being a person who respects and adores animals the thought of some sweet creature being tested on for luxury or high street branded make up just to be smeared on my face for me, just to enhance my features at the cost of such torture .I will be honest it boils my blood and the process is totally not Kawaii!

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs haul review - Vegan and Cruelty free

Hello you cute Kittens. I hope you are all doing well.
Am so excited to be doing this post and sharing it with you all. Lunatick Comestic Labs is a brand I discovered this year and it was a rocky start with the some what loose eye shadows palette but we have become best of friends now with me being able to get used to it. That aside. When I saw there was a new contour pallete coming out by them I was so excited. I needed it. I only have just got into the whole contour thing. Yes am late to the party , I know.  But when I saw this, I feel in love,.I already had my eyes on the new lipsticks they had made a while back so once I pulled all my saved up money together I went ahead and got a haul of items to share with you all.


''LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs products formulated with loving care. All cosmetics are 100% Vegan, Talc Free & Cruelty Free. ''- LunatiCK Comestic Labs Website.

So what did I order?! Well Of course, I ordered from my lovely suppliers Cute Comestics a online stockist in the UK.I just want to also point out this is not a sponsored review or were these items sponsored by the supplier or stockist. All outta my hard saved monies.

Dupes for lime crime Venus palette- My mission part 2

Ah finally getting round to part 2 of my Lime Crime Dupe missions , in my part 1 we looked at Shiro cosmetics. This time we are looking at Make up Geek or MUG for short. So I heard of this brand which is from the USA but never tried them due to shipping costs . So when I caught wind of them coming to the uk on a web site called beauty bay , I was keen to get these dupe shades.



Well it was alot harder to get hold of the shades I wanted , as soon as they were listed they were snapped up really quick, I had to await two restocks to gets mos of the shades. So MUG are a animal testing free company ( said on the website.) and sell the shades in small round pots that will stick to a magnetic palette. Any how! lets check out the shades I got..

Dupes for Venus Palette Eye Shadows - my mission part one

As a self proclaimed Make up Junkie , I did find Lime crime.
I fell in love with the Grunge Venus eye shadow palette but the whole credit card theft, the scams , misprinted details on products and the drama. Also the shipping and cost of the products was putting me off. 
The Venus palette...I just bought it even though I feel guilty by handing over my money- good buy money!- at the time to get it  it cost so much to buy and ship over . Once in my hands I found myself falling deeply in love with the product. So I had this new eye shadow perfect for my skin tone the colours are warm and urgh loved it. I then took to hunting down dupes, Every one went mad for these colours and the company were always sold out so . I decided to use up the palette ( still am) and search for a new vegan  and or animal cruelty free dupes for it. However this was not the easiest task!

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Review.


Hey every one- how are you all, So here is a insight review to some new products I have been loving this month and last month. Yes I know more make-up am such a junkie and love discovering new make up. So lets talk about  Lunatick Comestic Labs or LCL for short.
Lunastick comestic labs is a handmade indie brand who are a brand that are 100% vegan and Animal cruelty free.  They seem like a creepy cute style and so far have a good size range of eyeshadows, lippys and new products coming soon. I order my items on line and was looking at the time for a new liquid to matt lippy, but so far I only found JSC are living up to my requirements for that. But I found a recommendation for these more for the shades BUT these lippys are not Matt finish.


As you can see I have 4 of the Apocalipslick products. I have range of shades a brown shade, coral, pink and red/pink.
I have been having lots of fun with these. The items come as they are sealed and have a ingredients   list on the side that comes off with the seal, these are described as creamy  and ultra pigmented. And they SURE ARE!



This is the shade Crypt Cream, a nude and coral shade, this is the one shade I used so much of late! I am in love with this. It is great for every day wear. I do favour my bright shades of pink and red . So wearing this was out my comfort zone . Even got comments of others noticing my change in colour shades! What I like is these are a nice size product with a doe stick applier, there is no need to pack on the colour cause its bursting with colour even for a nude/ coral shade.


This shade was the first one I bought, I really liked the MUA academy brownish shades that I guess pushed me to buy this one. It is called  Renegrade and is said to be a nude brown. Its not overly nude but it is also not overly brown it seems to be a nice balanced shade. I have only tried it twice but really want to create a look with this shade. I also noticed each shade has a different scent , no nasty smells, I think some are watermelon, mint and maybe peppermint. Which makes these even more amazing!


 Next up is the newest one I have just got this month and it is called pout off,  This is a shade of bright pink, and its a pink even Barbie would be jealous of! It sure is bright and maybe neon ish? It looked so weird on me. I did sway about buying this one as it looked more purple looking on the swatch on the website. But after following the company instagram account and saw regrams of this shade that pushed me to buying this shade. I gotta say its a awesome ,fun and bright shade I wana say its more a baby bright pink shade. I want to use it but it might be to bright for the school run!


And the last shade here is Succubus listed as a medium fuchsia pink , I found it was more a red/pink shade, I was not keen on this shade at the start but I have grown fund of the shade over time and  am sure this one smells of the watermelon. I really like the name of this one hehe!

All of these are creamy as I have said they last about 4 hours and leave a after stain colour to the  it looks like the colour stays on the lips for me about 6 hours even with food and drink but at close up they do need a wee touch up,but they are easy to apply but you do not need to load up the doe brush for colour cause they are full of colour, I would not say they are kiss proof (until they become to the stain on your lip stage ) and when eating and drink you need to watch a little bit there but I really love my little collection of these beauties.- I really like these that I would recommend them to a friend.

After falling in love with these - I wanted to give the eye shadows a shot, I have a soft spot for this creepy cute coffin style palette in the shade supernatural , Which you have guessed it its natural colours. I picked this one but it was a tough choice cause I liked the look of the other shades.


As you can see the palette is very spooky looking and vamp, haha I really love it not what you might expect from me but I do have a soft spot for creepy like stuff . The under side of the lid even has bat shaped mirror to use.





See those glass things on top of the shadows? Those are powder pressers for each shadow. The shodows are super super soft maybe its best to pick these as a loose item- am not sure but you do have your powder press tools to pat the powder back in its wee section in the coffin palette. I did do a swatch but my camera battery gave up on me and no photo but theres are super soft and really pretty but you have to take care with them being soo soft and store them well to keep the in tack.

The colours are called Invocation ,Myth, Spook, Reincarnation Ghoulight. Am loving them !







I think the middle one Spook is my fave shade,I adore rusty looking shades for a grunge like look and these naturals are soo pretty. Am sure to use this for natural looks as well. I would recommend storing this flat to avoid any mishaps with the super soft colours.

 Will I be buying any more from this brand. I think am gona enjoy what I have and see what new colours of the Apocalipstick comes out with as well as the new bullet lipsticks that are due out soon!

Kawaii NEW make up Haul

And so about a week ago, I did a order with cutECOmestics, a UK retailer who sell vegan and or cruelty free products. These range from Badger balm to Sugarpill .
This is my second order from the company. The website is easy to use and the process is simple enough. Shipping is pretty fast about 3 days for shipping. And it all comes in a large package.
I will be making a future purchase with this company again as I like the range that have but a lot of the products are sold out (*_*).
This came inc postage around £20-25 . I think, I really cant mind haahaa.  So Manga brows is a interesting product. It is made by Neve Cometics and is a double ended brow pencil- all in the name there Manga brows. So one end is a light brown the other dark and one lid cap has a hidden brow brush. It is meant to give you more 3D manga like brows. 


I can not tell is this is a product I like, Ever since I been using the Barry M brow kit I found it gives such a nice brow shape to my brows I have favoured it more and its half the price too. But After playing about with the Manga Brows I have found it gives a soft natural shade in colours , its much quicker and easier to use. I do not have much time for make up every school morning having to be organising every one out the door on time . So I guess its a handy item to have. More so with it being double ended and the hidden brush so that it save time hunting for the right pencil and brush in the morning - still half asleep and wanting just to go back to bed. Am not a morning person! I did find this might be a little over priced but hey your allowed a treat once in a while.
It's totally worth checking out the eye shadow pallets by Neve too if you get the chance!


Moving on is Concrete Minerals eye shadow in shade trouble maker.  A other Vegan and Cruelty-Free product. This is a medium brow with gold through it. I wanted to try the products out from this company and expand my make up product range . I was drawn to this one and a other one which I would like to buy later called Hustle. I have worn it twice so far and its a very nice product, very light to wear and you can build up the colour . I liked to ware it lighter on my lids as it looked more black that brown when I added more colour.  I can not say for sure if its a keeper for my make up bag but I do want to try the other shades or maybe splash out on a bundle set.



So the last time is an Apocalipstick- that's a mouthful to say this .Which is by Lunastick cosmetics Labs.It is the shade Slick Crytp Cream. Its a coral pink with a hint of nude , I guess is the only way to describe it. This is a liquid lippy. But GASP! its not one that turns to a Matt finish , just a normal lippy finish. This is my 3rd one I might even do a blog post on all of them cause I love them so much. Even though I favour matt finish. This is also not a shade I would normally pick but it reminded me of a cheap high street drug store colour that I really liked,so I wanted to have some thing that was well, not as cheap and would last . Am not looking at any brand in particular *cough* MUA Academy *cough*. This is a nice replacement and lasts a good 4-6 hours on and when it wears off it still has a tint of the shade left on your lips and is very nice to wear. Its one of my faves this month!



Any way that's my insight to my Haul of new Make up I have a other haul to show you and pass on my Kawaii wisdom of it all and hope your excited to see it as its all make up products from Korea!

Next time cuties
