Eccentric Cosmetics.

I've heard about this Australian company when coming across a good review of their vegan eye primer. The only eye primers that I know of that are vegan are Milani and elf which are ok performance wise. I decided to pick one up along with a few mini jars of shadows. The primer is the long wear and is translucent on the skin. It has a smooth balm like texture and glides on the skin very easily. The shadows stick to it very well and it's important to pat the shadow on rather than swipe in order to keep the shimmer from falling away.

Three mini jars of colors that are inspired by one of my fave movies The Fall! From L to R: Sister Evelyn, Swimming Elephant, Indian. Free sample in Trickster.

From top to bottom: Indian, Swimming Elephant, Sister Evelyn, Trickster. All swatched on top of the primer. Gorgeous! These were all hastily swatched but I know if I were more patient in application I could bring out the shimmer. Also this is in evening light.

Edit: I used the primer along with Sister Evelyn for a whole day at work and at the end of my day, there was no creasing and the color stayed put!

Quick dinner!

Gardein beefless burgers are my absolute favorite. They are meaty and juicy. Melted Daiya on top is a glorious thing.

This was my Mother's Day vegan food haul! Gardein 4eva!

Bring to a boil and stir stir stir...9 minutes later you have yummy pasta for days!

Kiss My Sass Cosmetics

A few more samples from Kiss My Sass cosmetics. Next time I'll get full size shadows because these samples were $2 each. In comparison with Shiro, you get less sample product for more money which was kind of a bummer. I really love the colors though.

Sahara, Forbidden Desires, Summer's End.

Forbidden Desires, Summers End, Sahara.

Gardein chicken strips...

...are bomb with tater tots, waffle fries, BBQ sauce and ketchup! Vegan junk food is the best.

Brija Cosmetics mini jars.

Back with a vegan, cruelty free cosmetics review. Brija is one of my favorite cosmetics companies. This time I got mini jars of eyeshadow because of the price (around $2.75 each) and because the amount of product is more than enough. 

This is my order. 4 tiny jars of pretty colors!

Here's a nice pic in the sunshine.

Top to bottom: Am I Crying or Laughing?, Kit, Namaste and Comet.

All swatched on top of Milani eye primer.
