Cruelty Free Beauty Wishlist

Whilst I'm super keen to be on board with this campaign, I'm trying my best not to be preachy. You won't find graphic photos or gruesome facts depicting what animals go through courtesy of companies who test on them anywhere on this blog. I'm trying to focus on the positives by raising awareness, showing off some of the gorgeous and guilt free products out there and prove that whilst it is tricky at times, there still is a wide variety for all available.

If you want more information or are new to the world of CF beauty, this weeks #CFBloggers Chat is going to be a beginners guide and hosted by yours truly! Join us on Thursday evening 9pm until 10pm on Twitter using the #cfbloggers hashtag.

In the meantime here are some of the things I hope will be making an appearance on my vanity table in the near future with descriptions below referring to items going from left to right.

Cruelty Free Beauty Wish List

1. Gleam Highlighter in "Aurora" by Illamasqua
I've recently been favouring the naturally dewy look over the matte and made up. Gleam is a cream highlighter without glitter. It's easy to apply and due to it's texture is a treat for those with dry skin.

2. Lip Tar in "Memento" by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
With the ongoing controversy with Lime Crime, OCC provide a liquid to matte lip product without the fuss. I'm loving this shade for Spring with my pale complexion and dark eyes.

3. Mordernist Eyeshadow Palette in "Exposure" By Hourglass
As the happy owner of two of the infamous favourite Naked palettes, I've got enough eye shadow to keep me going for quite some time. But this gorgeously presented palette with it's collection of bronze and taupey browns has got me all doe-eyed.

4. Mermaid Perfume by Mermaid
It won't come as a surprise that the name is what initially drew me in but with notes of fruit & flowers, the ingredients in the fragrance sound right up me street too.

5. Dipbrow Pomade in "Dark Brown" by Anastasia Beverly Hills
I've been wanting to try this since it first was released in the UK via Cult Beauty but I'm STILL trying to get through a non-cf product I bought 5 years ago! I've tried Anastasia's Brow Wiz Pencil - it was incredible & with Dipbrow being one of the most hyped about brow products since the dawn of time with a collection of celebrity fans, I expect big things.

6. Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in "Candy Glow" by Too Faced
Despite it's unecessarily long name the adorable aesthetics of this blusher teamed with it's coral pink hues are what placed it on my hot list for summer (if it ever comes!).

7. Lock n Load Make Up Setting Mist by Kat Von D
I only recently learnt that Kat Von D's range is CF and boy, was I stoked. Sticking with the naturally radiant/dewy look, I want to replace my matte fixing powder for a light spray and this sounds like it would fit the bill perfectly.

Which products are you wishing for right now? Have you tried any of these? Let me know below!
