Cruelty Free Beauty Splurges and Steals

Press SampleI Bought ThisAffiliate Links

I’m back with a New Splurges and Steals! I have a mix of cruelty free items that I love that some of you may consider a splurge, so I paired them up with other comparable products that I consider a steal.

Finishing Powders

A. NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder – $34 for .24 oz.
You all know I love this powder and think it’s amazing. I’ve been wearing it non-stop for months.

B. Silk Naturals Vegan Perfecting Powder – $9 for 30 gram jar packed with over a tablespoon of product
I picked up this finishing powder to test out. It’s a steal for the price and the amount of product that you get!

Black Eyeliners

A. Buxom Hold the Line Waterproof Eyeliner in Jet Black – $17 for .04 oz
I love how well this black eyeliner holds up on my waterline!

B. Nyx Retractable Eye Liner in Black – $4.50
These liners also do a great job sticking around on my waterline, and they come in 15 different shades!

Smudge Pots

A. Stila Smudge Pots – $20 for .14 oz
These are fabulous for a shadow base or liner. 5 colors are currently available.

B. Darling Girl Watercolor Paint Pots – $5.25 for a 3 gram jar
These are fabulous for a shadow base for liner. 10 colors are currently available.

Cream Foundations

A. NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation – $38 for .42 oz
I love the way this foundation looks when it’s applied with a wet beauty blender. I wear Siberia.

B. Performance Colors Light & Smooth Foundation – $10 for .50 oz.
This really does a great job melding with my skin. I wear Snowie.

Powder Foundations

A. Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation – $35 for .40 oz
I love this pressed mineral foundation and I promise a review and tutorial with it soon. I wear N1.

B. Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss Foundation – $25.95 for 22 – 30 grams in a 3 oz. jar.
My original favorite mineral foundation! I wear Inquisitive Siamese.

Eyeshadow Palettes

A. Kat Von D True Romance Sinner Palette - $36 for .40 oz (8 shadows) and mini pencil
Lots of beautiful greys and purples in this palette, making it purrrrrfect for Fall.

B. Urban Decay The Dangerous Palette - $16 for .21 oz (6 shadows) and mini gloss
Lots of dark rich shades that make it amazing for Fall.

Lip Products

A. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars – $18 for .33 oz
You know I love my lip tars, especially since I made some into DIY lip tar pencils.

B. Sleek Pout Paints – $6.49 for .27 oz
This is the only product on my list that I have not tried but I want to try! They’re supposed to be very similar to the Lip Tars! Peek-A-Bloo, Peachy-Keen, Mauve-Over, Lava and and Port look awesome.

      I love your splurge vs steals posts!  I so want to try the NARS powder (but powder doesn’t like my superdry skin) so I think I’ll go with the steal and try the Silk Naturals first.
