Fall Favorites | Cruelty-Free + Non-Toxic


Fall Favorites


Instead of the typical Monthly Favorites, I gathered up the products I have been reaching for over and over the last few months.


All of the products you see here are free of harmful ingredients and are Cruelty-Free. With the exception of the Bite Beauty lip product I will be mentioning, every product is also Vegan.


Let's get in to my Fall Favorites!





Oh, and every single product on this list is under $25!



Silk Naturals Eyeshadow in "Spooky"

$4.50 value



This is the only product that is no longer available for purchase (don't kill me!). This shade was a free gift with any Silk Naturals order during the month of October.


"Spooky" is the most beautiful pink duo-chrome that reflects blue and green! If you are familiar with the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice, Spooky is it's non-toxic twin sister but without the chunky glitter.


I loved applying this color all over my lid and into the crease with a deeper red in the crease to create the most perfect dramatic smokey eye for Fall! If you have green eyes, you NEED this color in your life.


Silk Naturals, make this shade permanent!

Silk Naturals Highlight Powder in "Fluff"

$4.50
Review



I am back on the highlighter kick! When my makeup needs that extra pop of something, I add highlighter, HEAVILY. What can I say, I love the look of matte skin with my cheekbones gleaming from above.


"Fluff" is a gorgeous light pink with gold shift. It is stunning on top of the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose if you have a light or medium skin tone with a warm undertone. This color is even more stunning when paired with olive and khaki green eyeshadows.


I absolutely love Silk Naturals Highlighting Powders, they have amazing pigmentation and come in a large variety of shades. I hope they release more for the upcoming Holidays!

Pumpkin & Poppy Contouring Powder in "Oak Bark"

$9.25
Review



The newest makeup product to my collection, the Pumpkin & Poppy Contouring Powder in "Oak Bark" is the answer to every pale girls contour prayers.


"Oak Bark" is a light-medium cool-toned taupe with a satin finish. It is semi-opaque, so I prefer to use a fluffy brush for application.


This shade is perfect for carving out your facial features without looking unnatural. However, because of cool-toned aspect of this color, if you have a warm undertone, you will NOT like this color. It will look ashy and purple on your skin.


There's something about the Fall and Winter seasons that makes me want to carve out my cheekbones with a knife (kidding). Defined features just look more appropriate during the colder months....to me.

Honeybee Gardens Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in "Daredevil"

$8.99
Review



Earlier when I spoke about using a darker eyeshadow color in the crease to create a smokey eye, this is the shade I was using.


"Daredevil" is a beautiful deep burgundy with a satin finish. If you love the tone of the Urban Decay Naked 3 or the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette, you will love this color.


Whether I was pairing this eyeshadow with Silk Naturals "Spooky", a khaki green, or simply smoking out a neutral eye, this was my go-to crease color for the Fall. It has excellent pigmentation, is not patchy or streaky, and it lasts all day when worn with an eyeshadow primer.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in "Tannin"

$14 (LE Set), $24 (Full Size)



Once upon a time, I tried on just about every day of the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks. I fell IN LOVE with the shade "Tannin", a deep cool toned red.


So when I saw that Bite Beauty released a deluxe sample size duo with the shade Tannin in their High Pigment Lip Pencil formula, I knew that for $14 I had to have it.


"Tannin" is universally flattering amongst all skin tones, and has a moisturizing formula that leaves your lips looking healthy and plump. The High Pigment Lip Pencils, despite Bite Beauty's claim, are not matte, they do have a sheen and they do transfer across surfaces. This formula lasts for hours on the lips, but does fade around the corners of the mouth, so I recommend applying a lip liner first.

Lily Lolo Pressed Mineral Blush in "Coming Up Roses"

$20
Review


Most of you guys know the struggle of finding a non-toxic blush in a pressed format...they are few and far between. But Lily Lolo did it! And boy did they do it well!


Their Pressed Mineral Blush in "Coming Up Roses" is the perfect cool toned mauvey rose. The formula is very long-wearing, blends easily into the skin, and layers well with other products.


No matter if I was wearing a deep smokey eye or a quick and simple eye look, this blush complemented the eye-look perfectly. The pigmentation is buildable so you can make it work for just about every look and almost every skin tone except deep or for those with very warm skin tones.


Here's hoping Lily Lolo launches more shades soon!
