Is PETA’s Cruelty Free List Legit? | My Beauty Bunny – Beauty Article

There has been a lot of discussion in the cruelty-free community about whether or not PETA’s cruelty-free brand list can be trusted. I don’t always agree with tactics and stances PETA has taken on other issues but setting that aside, I wanted to learn more about their cruelty-free cosmetics brand list. After researching post-market testing in-depth with several sources, I have come to realize that China’s post-market testing is no longer a major risk. In fact, post-market testing on cosmetics…

Tom Ford Moonlit Violet Shade and Illuminate Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Moonlit Violet Tom Ford Beauty Moonlit Violet Shade and Illuminate Face and Eye Palette ($155.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a new palette that appears to exclusive to Nordstrom at this time. It includes four eyeshadows, one highlighter, and one sculpting powder. The eyeshadows were the stars of the palette; the formula here felt extra-smooth, more finely-milled and “melty” when applied to lids, which gave them a more seamless look. The highlighter/sculpting powder were decent to good but felt a bit…

Becca Merlot & Maroon Ultimate Lipstick Love Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Merlot Becca Merlot Ultimate Lipstick Love ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, red-burgundy with cooler undertones and a glossy, luminous finish paired with ultra-fine pearl. It had more shine and slip compared to most shades in the range, so it was actually rather impressive how well the color applied overall. It could have applied more evenly to the inner area of my lips, but it didn’t seem to sink into my lip lines or feather outside my natural lips.…

Clionadh Crown Jewel & Lineage Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Crown Jewel Clionadh Crown Jewel Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadow ($12.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a rich, brighter medium blue with cool undertones and a metallic finish that shifted from gold to greenish-gold to blue. The shift was exactly as the brand described (“gold-turquoise-blue”), and the gold-to-green was most noticeable on the lid (the blue giving the eyeshadow a stronger sheen without the contrast of shimmer). It had nearly opaque color coverage applied with a fingertip, which was easily blended to full…

Beauty Business News | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

Revlon is a brand that has struggled for some years now to find its place, with net sales falling 39% (we are still talking over $500 million though). But, many brands are seeing sharp downturns in fortune – Shiseido is recording a drop of 34.4% (although watch them branch out into devices to recoup), while LVMH’s (Dior, Guerlain, Givenchy, Fenty, Benefit) profits see a drop of 68% for the first half of the year. There’s still a lot of shuffling…

Maybe Stickers Are The Answer To Constant Nail Biting – Beauty Article

I have no memory of seeing my nails unbitten. For the last 28-ish years, my jagged little fingernails were my life’s work; I dedicated time into making my fingers look like shit. And though you might say I was born to be a nail biter, I don’t believe in fate. My nails were hopeless, until they weren’t. When I decided to take action, I became the experiment, living the scientific method as learned in 4th grade. And the experiment lasted…

Clionadh Royalty & Bloodline Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Royalty Clionadh Royalty Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadow ($12.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, lighter purple with cooler undertones in the base color paired with shimmer that shifted between aqua, gold-green, purple, and gold paired with a metallic finish. At certain angles, it read cooler and more violet and at others, it was warmer and with twinkling gold, green, and pink sparkle. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “pink-gold-green-turquoise-blue-purple.” The shift was subtler as the sparkle was quite…

Becca Tulip, Dune, Bare Ultimate Lipstick Love Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Tulip Becca Tulip Ultimate Lipstick Love ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly shiny, cream finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too emollient or too slippery, so it was comfortable to apply but didn’t slide around while worn. There was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, and it wasn’t as forgiving of lip texture as other shades in the range. It had good…

ColourPop Garden Variety Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Garden Variety Colour Pop Garden Variety 15-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow ($20.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited edition 15-pan palette that includes six matte eyeshadows, seven shimmery eyeshadows, and two sparkly “mattes.” It was a decent palette, and the issues it had were mostly around powderiness, fallout, and some shades were sheerer than marketed. It wasn’t difficult to work with, though, so for someone who doesn’t mind some fallout during application, it likely won’t be a big disappointment. There…

The reality of weight loss, which many people come to realise later on, after going through much-hyped fad diets and other time-saving bypass methods, is that there are no shortcuts to lose weight – no pill, no supplement, no magic tea, and no fat cutter can help you lose weight! In fact, you may have serious side effects when you take shortcuts in order to shed some pounds. The most effective method for guaranteed weight loss is by following a good…

ColourPop Whole Nine Yards Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Whole Nine Yards Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and larger, gold micro-sparkle over a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture that seemed a touch drier to the touch, though it didn’t read dry or dusty when applied to my skin. This shade wasn’t quite as blendable as would be ideal, so I’d recommend applying it over powdered (or more matte) skin…

Ameliorate Intensive Hand Therapy (Rose Fragrance) – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] This is a rose scented update on the original Ameliorate Intensive Hand Therapy. I’m as guilty as the next person in thinking of hand care as an immediate problem solver rather than a long term skin care option. So, you need to choose wisely if you want benefits over and above moisture. I do try and slosh a bit of left over face lotion on my hands in the evening but it’s hit and miss.

How Feeling Anxious Affects Your Skin – Beauty Article

Correlation doesn’t prove causation, but I can’t help but notice that both times I’ve lived in my teenage bedroom I’ve felt especially sad. In high school, it was an angry sadness that sought attention. But when I came back to my parents house in March to ride out COVID, the sadness became deep and dull—about everything and nothing. I go to bed dreading the next day like it holds a big test I haven’t studied for. In the morning, I…
