5-free? 7-free? 8-free? Cruelty-free?
Hi there friends, and happy Monday! As I’ve become more interested in natural and cruelty-free cosmetics, I’ve done a bit of research on nail polishes. Nail polish is one of my favorite things, and it was interesting to learn a bit more about the ingredients of each brand that I used. I put my nail polish collection through a bit of a detox, and today I want to talk about some brands that have remained favorites in my collection. Let’s go!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a beauty post, and after a good long stretch of using the same products every day, I’ve added a few new things into the mix for the summer that I want to share with you! These days I’m all about a simple and fuss-free routine that leaves me looking fresh. Peachy tones always speak to me during the warmer months, as well as light fresh scents. I have four products to tell you about today, so let’s jump right in!
As much as I love beauty routines, one area I often overlook is a classic manicure. As a nearly life-long pianist and violinist, I’ve never payed too much attention to my hands or nails, other than to make sure my nails were trimmed short. One thing that has always been a plague for me is dry skin on my hands and around my nails, but recently I’ve come up with a solution that’s helping thanks to a beautiful product from L’Occitane, the sponsor of this blog post.
For years I played around with different lip colors from reds to pinks to berries, trying to discern what shades worked for me. I never felt I had found anything that suited me perfectly until the advent of the rose-brown lip trend a few years back. I tried out a 90s inspired shade and was instantly hooked! Since that day, deep neutral lip shades have become my signature beauty look, and I’ve enjoyed curating a collection of favorites. From mattes to creams and opaque formulas to sheer, today I’m sharing my favorite rose-brown lipsticks. Bonus: they’re all cruelty free, and two are 100% vegan!
