Beauty Without Cruelty Cosmetics Review

I was so happy to receive these 3 products for review from Beauty Without Cruelty!

They are all really high quality natural cosmetics that have many great features.

If you’ve never heard of Beauty Without Cruelty, you should check them out for the sake of all beauty things cruelty free and vegan.

Made in the UK,  these top quality beauty products redefined natural beauty before anyone else, or so it seems, as they began back in 1963!

Plus, their products are very good; they work well without sacrificing quality or harming animals in their manufacturing process and are completely vegan. You’ll be glad to know they also make their products without a lot of harmful ingredients!

Straight out of the gate, I love this nail polish! It’s a nice orange color which I find to be very suitable for Summer and it’s 3 free – No formaldehyde, toluene or PEG in sight! I know my nails look like crap; I’m just not good at doing them. I’ve done my best for you all, but alas, nail painting is not one of my high points so there.

Hopefully some of my friends read this, take pity and come do my nails so mine don’t have to consistently look like utter .. yep.

Until then, this is the best I can do!

Anyhow, back to this awesome polish. I love the packaging for this polish; it’s so chic and simple. The polish stays on fairly well and looks really flattering and happy. I like it a lot and find the color is nice and vibrant, even when dry. It certainly made me look more put together to have them painted on days when I went without makeup and it added a fun pop of color to my wardrobe of endless black and grey. I know, I need to incorporate more color into my closet, but it’s a process!

Check out their whole line of nail colours (it’s UK made so I feel obligated! LOL. Maybe I should have written this post in Brit English?)- Here!

Next up is this Cream Concealer Pencil in Fair. This was a favorite for sure! I will certainly be purchasing this one once I run out because it’s so handy to use. It really takes the guesswork out of using concealer which, to be honest, I have always had trouble with. I always end up looking pasty and cakey when I wear most concealers which is why I normally avoid them altogether, but this one is simple, easy to use and blends in very naturally with the skin.

 I used it to highlight my under eyes and also spot conceal some small blemish spots that I had going on with much success. It is really easy to use, covers decently and does not break me out which is a big one for me. A lot of concealers are often so overbearing and heavy that, when I use them, have a tendency to break me out worse when I try to conceal spots so rather than the spot healing, it just aggravates the situation more. This is so light and breathable on my skin while also concealing spots, but it doesn’t break me out further which is a huge bonus for me.

Random fact – apparently this one is made in Germany.

Likely my favorite from the products I was sent, this naturally infused lipstick is a lovely coral color that includes jojoba oil, castor oil, and vitamin E in its formula for highly moisturized and soft looking lips.

It really does hydrate my lips while giving them a nice bright Summer splash of color!

As you can see, the color is a perfect coral tint and it has a tiny bit of shimmer in it, though not too much to be distracting or dramatic. It wears well with day and night looks alike and is a nice change to many conventional lipsticks. This certainly is a cut above those because of the infusion of vitamin E and vegetable oils that work to hydrate, plump and soften the lips while you wear it.

I definitely want to expand my collection of these lipsticks – very flattering and hydrating!

    I love that nail polish! It’s such a lovely color 🙂

      Me too! I’m all into orange now! It’s bizarre because this time last year I would’ve died before wearing anything orange or even peachy. Now I’m all about it haha. Glad you like it too 🙂 x

    I love that orange! It looks like a shade that almost any skin tone can wear.

    1. July 18, 2012 at 12:19 AM

      yeah I think it is too! It’s quite nice and pretty for the beach! x

    Great review! It isn’t easy to find natural vegan products, I know that plenty of mine aren’t. I would love to see more vegan product reviews! I heard somewhere that ELF is vegan, or cruelty free, I’m not sure of which.

    1. July 21, 2012 at 11:08 AM

      Thank you! Yeah, they are starting to become more relevant though as it becomes more important to consumers so that’s good. I certainly have more cruelty free natural brand reviews in the making so stay tuned! Also, not sure what ELF is, but vegan maybe. I doubt cruelty free, but if they are I’m impressed! 🙂

        I think it is a newer drugstore brand. I have found it in HEB, it is a grocery store only in Texas, so maybe that is why.

        1. July 21, 2012 at 10:55 PM

          oh wow hmm never seen it in store, but that’s awesome ! x

    Oh my gosh I love the concealer pencil. It looks like the many beige-y eyeliners that have come out in the last couple years, for neutralizing and covering redness in lower waterline. Except unlike many of the others, this one is cruelty-free! 🙂

    1. July 28, 2012 at 11:49 PM

      yeah I really like it to spot treat without being too heavy! For a light concealer, it works really well. For a more full coverage but still natural looking one, I like the healthy skin one by neutrogena – I reviewed it here >>http://storybookapothecary.com/2012/07/23/my-favorite-drugstore-concealer-for-sensitive-acne-prone-skin/
