New Cruelty Free Beauty Obsessions

New Cruelty Free Beauty Obsessions -

Happy Makeup Wars Monday! For this Makeup Wars, we’re talking about new beauty obsessions. I’m sharing my new cruelty free beauty obsessions, which I think you’ll love too!

Pr + purchased by me.

New Cruelty Free Beauty Obsessions

Urban Decay Afterglow Blushes

Urban Decay Afterglow Powder Blushes
I love the new blushes from UD and I’ve been wearing them non-stop. Bittersweet, Kinky, Obsessed, Quickie and Score are stunning! See me wearing them all.

Urban Decay Summer 2015 Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Duotone Eyeshadows
UD came out with several fun new duotones for summer. My top picks are Fireball and Tonic, though I’ve seen some gorgeous looks with Dive Bar and Lounge too! See all the gorgeous colors.

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows
With so many pretty new purples, silver and teal, these are fun to play with. Try a single foiled on the lid or lower lid, or add dimension to the center of your lid in a halo. You can also use this at the inner lid to open up the eyes. See all these lovely shades.

Cover FX Custom Cover Drops (vegan)
I’ve been loving the new Cover FX Custom Cover Drops since I can mix them with any skincare product, serum, primer or other foundation that I own. I wear shade N10. See how to use this to diy your foundation.

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint
I’ve been loving this product mixed with Cover FX Custsom Cover Drops. I feel like it makes my skin look great, but still like me.

Silk Naturals Shady Lady Contour Powder (vegan)
I’m using shade 1 to lightly contour my cheeks and loving it! It’s a neutral taupe, absolutely matte, no shimmer, and works wonderfully on my complexion. See more here.

Darling Girl Wonder Wands

Darling Girl Wonder Wands
These are fun for adding a glow to the lid. I’ve been wearing Saucy Minx (a taupe, I know, I know) and Serpentine a ton. See them all.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Pencils

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Pencils (vegan)
And while not new, I’m still obsessed with OCC’s Colour Pencils. I wear them almost daily. My staple shades are Anime, Hoochie, Black Dahlia, and Pool Boy. OCC needs to make more shades because these are so comfortable to wear on the lips, whether on their own or as a base for another product. See my review. Want to turn your lip tars into pencils?

  • Custom Cover Drops seem to be a perfect product. Can’t wait to try them…whenever my Sephora gets them back in stock:)

  • I am OBSESSED with the Custom Cover Drops. They are freaking amazing. So worth the money. I’m going to tell everyone to buy them!
    I am also excited that KVD’s products are now certified cruelty free! Hooray!

  • I still need to pick up the Custom Cover Drops! I keep forgetting

  • I picked up the Custom Cover Drops during the recent Sephora sale (BTW: I hate their rewards program too, even more now that regular BIs get left out of practically everything. If I can buy it at Ulta, I’ll buy it there. Love the cash back program!). I hope they eventually come out with a lighter shade. I would love to use them to lighten too-dark foundations, but since N10 is a perfect match, they don’t lighten foundations enough for my liking.

  • I’ve heard a lot of people raving about the CoverFX Custom Covor Drops and I’ve been really curious about trying them out. Great to hear that they are a cruelty-free brand. I’ll definitely be checking out the links you included to learn more about your thoughts on the product.

  • I bought the CoverFX CCD and think it’s ok but still trying to figure out how I like it best. I am gearing up to make a purchase from Makeup Geek soon as I love your reviews & recommendations but so many people are giving her eyeshadows rave reviews. Thanks for this post 😀

  • Sorry, this is a long one. Is there a foundation/powder you could maybe recommend that would work for your skin (mines pretty much the same as yours) and would only take 1 to 2 steps? I don’t have the skills for more than that, lol. Also the cheaper the better, I just don’t have the money for it right now. I know that asking for a cheap one step foundation is basically like asking you to find Bigfoot. I’m not expecting something amazing, just any advice would be awesome; I’m sick of using my cakey Mac studio fix.

    • I would recommend trying the Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation. I wear shade N10. Use a buffing brush (dense) to apply it to the areas of your face that need coverage. You can use something like Nyx Dewy Spray or e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set to amp up the coverage.

      If you want an indie option, you can try Meow Cosmetics Inquisitive Siamese.

      I have to be really careful with powders though because they sometimes dry out my face too much and emphasize fine lines around the eyes. However, I love them on my nose, cheeks, chin and forehead.

  • I recently got the Urban 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone and I’m totally in love with it!

  • I really want to try the CoverFx drops!!! And anything from Urban Decay is a no brainer.

  • I’ve been enjoying the CoverFX drops as well. My only issue is that the rim gets rather messy due to transfer from the dropper.

  • I can’t wait to try the Urban Decay blush and lip gloss in bittersweet. So gorgeous!

  • I’ve heard a lot about the FX drops, but the wonder wands are the best in this post (imo)! Sooo pretty.

  • I *love* the look of the foiled shadows from Makeup Geek. I can’t wait to try some

  • I am playing with the Custom Cover Drops. I like playing mad scientist and trying them with various mixers. A couple of those new UD blushes are on my list.

  • I’ve been getting Glossier emails but didn’t know what to look at from them. Now I know! Some of the new UD is in my future.

  • Love the new UD eyeshadows – especially Lounge. Those eye pencils look amazing as well. I love the foiled look too. Sigh – I want them all!

  • I really should get my hands on more of the foiled eyeshadows plus I need to try the Darling Girl Wonder Wands once more of the shades are restocked.

  • Great list! I’ve been wearing UD Rapture blush so much since I got it. I still need to get Tonic eyeshadow. It kept getting sold out on the Sephora website.

  • I am already in love with my UD blushes, and now I feel like I “need” the OCC liners! I have yet to try the Cover FX drops but I hear lots of good stuff about them.

    • I think I found my perfect combo with the CCDs + Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. Love how my skin looks when wearing the two. And yes, those OCC liners are a must have for everyone!

  • No one can stop talking about the CoverFX drops. I am the only one left in the world who hasn’t tried them.

  • Love your list. Gotta try some of the new UD products. But the Darling Girl Wonder Wands are really appealing to me
