Glossybox Sweden Christmas 2014

I decided to treat myself to the Glossybox Christmas 2014 Limited Edition Box.
A decision I do no regret!

All brands in this box are to my knowledge cruelty free!
If you have other information please let me know!

My absolute favourite products in the box are the -417 facial cleansing gel, the makeup base from Bottega Verde and the lip balm from Royal Aphotic!

The nail polish from Uslu Airlines was a bit of a dud though..

See my thoughts in my video:


Did you get this box too? Or another Christmas Box? Let me know!

ORLY is No Longer Cruelty Free

Some extremely upsetting news reached me today when I read Logical Harmony's blog.

This is truly going in the wrong direction! SHAME on you, ORLY!

Makeup Basket Week 49, 2014

Hey, guys!

I normally do these on video but my eyes are feeling sore and kind of itchy today, so I'd rather not put on my contacts and apply makeup. I don't know why they feel sore but I have decided to rest them for the day. :)

So, my makeup basket for the next week is coming to you in this way instead! I hope it is ok for you guys! These makeup baskets will - just like the empties - feature brands that are not cruelty free. It is a way for me to make sure I use everything in my stash, not just the newly bought items!

Cruelty free items will be marked with a green CF after the product name, like so: CF

First out is foundation and powder, I am skipping face primer this week too. I am using a new moisturizer and I want to see how my skin acts when I apply foundation straight on the skin.

November empties are up!

So, with November gone (almost) it's time for a new empties video!

As usual, this is a mix of cruelty free and non-cruelty free brands, as my stash still is very mixed.

Enjoy!

Weekly Makeup Basket weeks 46 and 47!

Last Sunday I launched a new feature on my Youtube channel: Weekly Makeup Basket.

The idea behind this is that I each Sunday take out all the makeup I will be using throughout the following work week. The reason for this is that I want to make sure I use ALL my makeup items, not just the newly purchased ones.. I am also horribly tired in the mornings before work, so this actually simplifies things tremendously!

Not all items in these videos will be cruelty free, obviously, since I am using items from my entire collection!

Below are the first two weekly videos:




In the latest video I forgot to mention the cruelty free status of some of the brands. Bourjois are as far as I know not cruelty free. Boots no 7 are cruelty free as are essence.

I ordered a few items from Milani Cosmetics, watch the video to see what I got!


Did  you see anything you like? I'm super thrilled about the eyeshadows and the lip gloss stains!
