OK FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS VEGAN MAKEUP AND WHY IS IT SPECIAL?
I think my motivation behind writing about makeup lines and products as I experience them is the inherent curiosity I have. After an adolescence of makeup and adornment free uniform and dress code mandated private school the world of beauty, makeup and fashion are an untold world of wonder that I’m still discovering well into my 20’s.
For those of us new to the concept of vegan makeup, a short browse around the internet has led me to find the website “Feel Good Style” (click for article) summarized the feel-good benefits of vegan makeup and what it has to offer us in the way of short term health and appearance as well as long term wellness.
I’m a Influenster product reviewer and this month’s pick for us was Kat Von D’s Studded Lip Kiss lipstick and BOY WAS I EXCITED! I’ve always been intrigued by the packaging for this line and I finally had an opportunity to TRY IT!!! I’m the kind of beauty store browser that will select things based on the following criteria:
- have I had it in a sample before,and did I love it;
- has a stylist ever recommended it, OR
- IS IT ON SALE?!?!?
My friends, this lipstick was free and can I tell you it was worth every penny! Not only did it leave my lips feeling supple and moisturized but the color stayed on as I took nearly 200 pictures of myself in it! I generally err toward tinted lip balms since my lips are always dry (dear Lord why), but I LOOOVEEEE this lipstick in the Lolita shade and will definitely be wearing it on the regular.
