Cruelty Free and Organic: Au Naturale and Ilia Lipstick Review

Lipsticks are my most favorite beauty product ever! I mean with a touch of color you can easily transform your face, and that’s without magic. So I’ve been trying new organic lipstick for a short time. I decided to buy these two cruelty free and organic lipsticks because I absolutely loved the color. Prior to using these organic lipsticks, I was using the Colourpop lippes. But I wanted to switch to organic lipsticks, because the ingredients are better and healthier for the skin. Please keep reading if you want to know what I think about these cruelty free and organic lipsticks.

Au Naturale in Marrakesh- $22

I first heard of this lipstick on Logical Harmony’s YouTube Channel. I bought it from Safe and Chic website. Marrakesh is a warm matte pink (pictured left). It is cruelty free, vegan, 100% natural, and it is made in the United States. I love the morals of this company, and I definitely plan on buying more from this brand. The formula for this lipstick is matte, and it lasts for about four hours on me. I noticed that it did make the lines on my lips visible, and because of that I had to add lip balm on top. This color is super pretty, and I did get a lot of compliments when I wore it.

I bought this cruelty free and organic lipstick online from Safe and Chic too. Ilia is much more moisturizing that the Au Naturale. I liked that my lips felt soft with this, but at the same time I felt that the lipstick moved around a lot and I had to retouch it with my fingers. This color is a soft nude with peachy undertones. Most likely I am going to buy the tinted lip conditioners, because on the website it said that these lipsticks pair well with those. I could go on and on, but I really liked this lipstick and I want to buy more.

Review of Juicy Beauty Face Primer & Cleansing Milk

Hey everyone! I’ve been wanting to do a review on these two Juice Beauty products for awhile. I have been using them for about three months. These were the first two products I ever purchased from Juice Beauty.

First off, I didn’t really have an immediate impression about these products, which is why I didn’t review them sooner. I’ll start with the primer. I like that it doesn’t feel rough on my skin. I was using the NYX  Poreless primer, and it made my skin feel irritated. I like that the Juice Beauty primer felt nice, and clean on my skin. My makeup did smudge throughout the day with the Juice Beauty primer, especially on my t-zone, which is where I am oily the most. To be completely honest I don’t think I would repurchase this product.

 

Next, time to review the Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. I have been using this to remove my makeup, and it does the job. I did notice however, that I had to rub coconut oil on my eyelids if I wanted to get my eye makeup off. I think the cleansing milk is good to take off face makeup, but not eye makeup. I don’t think this is the best cleansing remover, but it did make my skin soft. It did irritate my eyes, which is why I would rather use coconut oil.

What are your opinions on these products?
