In March I decided to start buying cruelty-free only makeup. It's quite a change. Almost all the brands at my Walmart are now off-limits. So many companies sell to mainland China. I can't buy Rimmel or Maybelline anymore. Both are two of my favourite brands. So I need to find new favourites. Elf and Colourpop, two of my other loves, are totally safe! So expect a lot of them on this list.
I'm really excited to go CF. Eliminating so many brands from my wishlist that I'm always going back too has allowed me to discover so many new brands to try. So many big names sell in mainland China. I'm excited that most of my beauty buys from now on will be Indie buys!
This will probably a long one so settle in with a nice cup of tea. I'm going to talk about some of the products I'm most excited about and include a full wishlist at the bottom. (It's a mile-long FYI)
I want COLOURPOP EVERYTHING! ColourPop seems to be launching new products every day. I need it all! The things highest on my CP list are the No Filter Foundation, Concealer and powder, the Dream St and Zodiac palettes and the BFF Liquid Liner. I'm also dying for the Liquid Lipstick in Class Pet, a navy blue. I'm dying for a navy blue lippie! And of course, I want the entire Lip Product collection that they make. Basically, my ColourPop wishlist extends to the entire range they offer.
elf is another company that I was very familiar with before deciding to switch to CF. I have a few lippies, a bunch of shadow palettes and some cheek products. I really want to try their face products, like foundation, primer, and concealer.
NYX was one of the first brands I ever used when I started really using makeup. I've tried their blushes and eyeshadows and some lippies of course. But I want to try more. I have one of their Matte Lipsticks and I really like the formula but I only got it in hot pink so I definitely want to get some shades I'm more likely to wear. I also really want to try their face products too. I don't have many foundations, especially now that I'm CF so every CF brand I find is going to get a foundation on the list.
Tarte is another favourite of mine. I don't have much from them so pretty much all their products are up for this list. I will say that their foundations worry me. Almost everyone I've seen oxidizes like crazy and you're orange in 15 minutes. The Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation doesn't look too bad in review videos so I'm tempted to try it. I bought the Tarte Water Gel foundation on sale and even tho it oxidizes at lightspeed I love the formula so I'm interested to see what the Rainforest foundation would be like.
I also want to try their Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I got a mini as a birthday sample from Sephora and I love the formula. But it's a nude and definitely not my style so I'm dying to get new colours!
My sister also raves about the Tarte Amazon Clay foundation so that's on my list for sure.
In my transition to CF, I've been hunting for new brands and Twitter directed me to Black Moon. I'm obsessed with their Orb of Light Palette! I'm also really drawn to their Matte Liquid Lipsticks, lippies are my go-to with a new brand after all.
Next on my list is something I've been wanting for a really long time. Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks! Specifically the shade Unicorn Blood. It's always sold out! I also really want the Blood Sugar palette. It's so pretty!
This post is getting pretty long so I'm going to skip to the skincare. (Full list of all items on my list at the end). So changing to CF means skincare too. And it turns out my whole routine is products sold in China. Everything has gotta go. (And by go I mean get used up and replaced). So I'm being gravitated toward First Aid Beauty.
I've used a sample of FAB in the past and loved it. I love that FAB is all about sensitive skin. No dyes or perfumes. Right up my alley. So needless to say my list is quite long. I really want to try the Micellar Makeup Melter Wipes and the Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay. I tried the Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay and love it! I also want to try the Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream, the Pure Skin Face Cleanser and the Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Moisturizer.
My other skincare wishlist items are TatchaWater Cream and Pacifica Kale Charcoal Ultimate Detox Mask. Also, any mask that is so strong it can rip my face off. (I'm really tired of these stubborn white and blackheads that won't come out.
