I’m sorry I have been inactive for so long. I have finished school and returned to my full time job, so that takes up most of my days.
I was having computer issues because the screen on my computer was broken, but I just got a new computer! Unfortunately I am still missing the charger for my new camera BUT my new-ish cell phone takes decent pictures and will work in the mean time.
Hopefully I can get some new stuff up soon, I have a lot to post!
Some examples -
- Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Nude Crème
- Wet n Wild Balm Stain in Rico Mauve
- A bunch of NYX stuff
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance and La Crème lipstick
- Essence stuff I got back in March
- Tarte Amazon Butter Lipstick in Tulip
- And a few more!
I’m still trying to get things organized between computers, so please bear with me. Thank you for being so patient!!
NYX had apparently put the company up for sale in March, with a potential deal with L’Oreal coming up soon. While L’Oreal is not a cruelty free company, I will continue to support NYX if they continue to remain cruelty free.
If you’re a cruelty free blogger or cruelty free consumer who loves NYX, I strongly suggest that you shoot a short e-mail to them and urge the company to remain cruelty free under L’Oreal’s brand.

There are too many pictures for me to post here, so if you’d like to view them here is the link to my Flickr
~$2 at Ulta, Wallgreens
I got mine for 1,99 € at El Corte Inglés when I was in Spain.
This is one of the “Sparkle Sand” polishes. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the texture, but I actually really like it! It certainly stays on my nails a lot longer than other polishes.
I recently emailed Enkore Makeup about the cruelty free status of their products because I could not find any indication in their ‘About Us’ or ‘FAQ’ section.
Here’s the response! Another one to add to the list!
~$8 at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Walmart
I couldn’t find these on the Milani site, so I don’t think they’re in production any longer
I got mine for $1 each at the Dollar Tree.
I purchased the colors Vivacious Fuchsia and Romantic Rose. Romantic Rose is a bit of a misnomer, though. It’s much more peachy toned.
There’s a lady who comes to my campus and sells a lot of makeup for cheap. She often has the imPress nails and they’re $3 each!
I picked up 2 this time around, “Hottie” and “Dancing Queen”
Hottie is a short length (which is still pretty long) and is a bit deeper purple but it got somewhat washed out by the flash.
PSA for photo theft!
A few days ago, I saw an Instagram post from Mai at portraitofmai.com.
Another user had stolen her pic of OCC Tarred pencil to advertise for her own product.
I had looked through this person’s posts and found 2 or 3 other pictures stolen. Since then, coloredkissescosmetics has either deleted their account or made their profile private.
