Im mostly an online shopper, it really saves time when you are usually school/office going person. I did a quick cruelty free shopping at sephora recently. This was my first shopping experience here online and it turned out to be good.
TARTE TINTED MOISTURIZER / BB CREAM
I was longing for a daily wear BB cream from quite sometime. I was debating over many BB creams and chose the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB tinted moisturizer in the shade medium tan. I believe it comes in 4 shade options to choose from. It has a medium coverage and gives the natural glowing look. When looked closely you can see the shiny particles in the product. Even though it doesn’t show out so. I dot it up all over my face (primed and moisturized) and blend in with a damp beauty blender. It comes out as a dewy finish. Perfect for daily wear! Would highly recommend. It does not make you look like a ghost (no whitish look), no caking and does not dry up the skin. I even noticed the oiliness around my nose reduced with this moisturizer. Even though it is moisturizing, i always like to apply another cream based moisturizer below. The wear stays for long time, does not melt on you on a hot day. It also has SPF and got the sun protection covered.
THE BALM FACE PRIMER
Got my hands on the Balm’s TIME BALM Face primer. It was more on the affordable side and i had to try it. This primer may not be vegan, just fyi but is cruelty free. The beautiful packaging and color really got to me. It has the same texture as other primer white and thick consistency. Once applied on skin gives a smooth finish and acts as a nice base for foundation or any tinted creams. I also apply over my eyelids to keep my shadows stay longer. This stays all day and really worth the buck. However i don’t see any much effect in hiding of fine lines, pores and redness.
KAT VON D LIQUID LIPSTICK
I was looking for a liquid lipstick and that’s when Kat Von D was added to sephora. I got mine liquid in the shade ‘lolita’, this is a beautiful maroon / mauve color. It was darker than i thought it actually would be. The finish is matte but it is not drying and stays moist. Very pigmented and long wear until 6-7hours. The first coat until drying feels sticky like a lip gloss but once dried it feels like almost invisible. I really wanted to get the soft lilac shade but it was out of stock that time unfortunately. I would look forward in trying some more shades on her lipstick collection. Definitely a must try baby. (This again may not be vegan)
KAT VON D LIQUID EYE LINER
This was most rated eyeliner, and the one thing i really wanted to grab. The kat Von D tattoo liner. The tattoo design on all of her packagings is a killer! It has a felt tip applicator and i choose mine in the color black. I use it everyday for work and it is super easy to use when in a hurry. The color unlike other liners have not faded out, the intensity is still black (been using this for quite some time). The cover is very tight hence it is not going to be spoiled whatsoever (unless you leave it open on purpose 🙂 ). Just one word would be love <3. I think i have found my holy grail eyeliner.
THE BALM LIP STAIN
This cutie lip stain Stainiac from The Balm was a sample piece sent free and it is vegan too (how cool is that). It comes with a sponge applicator. The consistency is almost watery. Even it looks red, it appears/comes out pinkish on lips. This is very light pigmented and gives a natural winter blushed lips. Definitely for a everyday use or the days when you don’t want to put makeup on.
That was it guys a small spehora shopping haul. I hope you liked it. Im looking forward to my next vegan/cruelty free haul 🙂 Thanks for reading!
