Best Cruelty Free Makeup Brands at Sephora

Now that I (FINALLY) have a local Sephora to shop at, I’m thinking more about showcasing brands that are A. super hyped, B. easily accessed (ahem Sephora),  and C. still cruelty free.

One of my biggest cruelty free turn offs is the wealth of CF beauty bloggers who only ever showcase verrrrry hippy/unknown brands. I get it. Someone has to do it, but to me it’s important that people who see CF as an afterthought can learn that there are brands that they already know and trust that are cruelty free. Those big brands, while they might already be doing well, are still just as, if not MORE worth talking about.  Continue reading

Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Review | FENTY BEAUTY

 

Fenty Beauty is finally here! Let me just take this moment to thank Rihanna for blessing us with these products. Since my wallet is stretched thin (thanks Uni) I limited myself to only one (1) Fenty Beauty product but now that I’ve tried it I’m itching for more! Is it a blessing?! Is it a curse?! I can’t decide! Here’s my review of the already super hyped up Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter.

 

Product Performance…

Isn’t this the most important part of any cult beauty product? Fenty Beauty has been SO hyped in the past week and LET ME TELL YOU – IT’S FOR REAL. I’ve been using Tarte’s Pink Champagne highlight forever now and I’ve been feeling like I need something that pops a lil more (how ironic). Knowing that Fenty Beauty was coming out with highlighters, I held off on buying the classic Becca ones and I’m SO happy I did. You get TWO highlighters in the Killawat palette and BOTH have insane colour pay off. The shimmer is super glossy looking with a lil bit of colour, AND it comes in a variety of shades so if you want a lil more colour Fenty’s got you covered. I went forclassic champagne colours Mean Honey + Hu$tla Baby because I knew I’d wear them most often but they had some nice lighter shades and a few pink + purple ones too. This highlighter is your dream highlighter. It lasts forever, and it shows up like it should – note in these pictures I just I applied it with my FINGER and it showed up this well : Unreal.

 

 

On the brightside… 

This product is made in Canada! I’m not sure if they’re all manufactured in the country’s they’re made in, but I’m glad to see the ‘Made in Canada’ label because I know it’s being made in compliance with Canadian labour laws and there shouldn’t be TOO much shadiness with the chemicals being used.

Cruelty free? It seems so! While I’m having trouble tracking down any source coming directly from Fenty Beauty, Rihanna seems to have hinted that she tested everything on herself, and many are saying that Fenty doesn’t test any of it’s products on animals and does not allow suppliers to do so either. I’ll update if there’s any news saying otherwise.

 

Also the packaging is indred. All of the Fenty products are shaped to fit together like honeycomb and it’s v chic. The packaging is white but it shimmers in the light and it’s magical. The logo is actually grey which I was like eh at first but now I think I like it better than black bc it’s less harsh and just seems classier. Not the obvious choice but it’s cool and damn if that ain’t what Rihanna’s always doing.

On the downside…

The only real ‘downside’ to this is that it costs $42CAD which isn’t cheap, but it’s about on par with the other cult highlighters soooooo I don’t mind paying it.

The Verdict…

This product makes  me want to invest more in Fenty Beauty. It’s super hyped, but super worth it, and now I want to know if the rest of the range is just as quality as this is …….. more to follow next pay day? Hopefully.

You can get your own from your local Sephora, online at Sephora, or online at Fenty Beauty’s own site: https://www.fentybeauty.com/

Some of these are necessities (if you ask me anyway), and some of these are just little pamper recommendations to help you relax and keep that skin glowing through the stressful first few days.
