Cruelty Free Beauty Haul #2: EcoTools, Urban Decay, bareMinerals, Sleek & More

The ultimate cruelty free beauty haul, featuring some new favourites of mine. Another cruelty free beauty haul buying lots of new products from my favourite brands. These brands are all cruelty free and I really wanted to try some more products from them since clearing out all of my non cruelty free makeup. Let me know in the comments if you have any favourite cruelty free brands and products so I can check them out. 
The first item I picked up was the Burts Bees Coconut Foot Cream. Before I had used the Soap & Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream but it’s still unsure as to whether S&G are actually cruelty free so I wanted to get a new foot cream that is so I picked this one up. Sometimes and very rarely my feet get very dry so I’m after a really moisturising one and this one sounds like it will do the job. This is a very intense oil based foot cream so it takes a little while to soak into the skin but it really does help moisturise your feet and makes them feel soft and smooth without any dry bits. 

The next items that I added to my basket were from bareMinerals, since finding out that they are cruelty free I was so happy as I love their products just as much as I loved Clinique. I added their brand new The Nature of Nudes Eyeshadow Palette which is filled with gorgeous nude eyeshadows which are the kind that I love to wear. They are so pigmented and really buttery which I love in an eyeshadow. I also added their READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil Powder which is in Translucent, as I’ve been on the hunt for a cruelty free pressed powder to replace my Rimmel Stay Matte powder which I really loved. I’m thinking I’m going to really like this powder as it’s matte and really finely milled so it won’t add any more layers to my foundation but will help set it and make it last all day. I love the sleek matte packaging of this powder, it feels really luxurious. With my bareMinerals purchases I received a few freebies which was their Lash Domination mascara which was so tiny and cute and the head of the mascara was really cool and twisted which really lifted my lashes and held them in place and I also received a mini of their Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rule Breaker which is a really pretty sheer nude shade with a little bit of glitter. 

I then added two concealers from NARS which I’ve heard great things about. I picked up their Radiant Creamy Concealer and their Stick Concealer both in Chantilly. I’m not sure if these are the right shade for me but it can’t help to try. If not I’ll purchase better shades later on. They both have an amazing consistency and feel like they will do an amazing job so I can’t wait to try them out, I will update this when I’ve tried them out. 

I then grabbed quite a few bits from Urban Decay and some bits that I’ve been wanting to try for ages. I restocked my favourite B6 Vitamin Complexion Prep Spray but in travel size this time as the bigger size was sold out. I love what this spray does and has helped prep my face before applying makeup. I then picked up their Good Karma Buffing Brush to apply foundation, it’s really soft and has a good weight to it and then I picked up their Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion which will help with my pores and mattify my face. I’m really excited to try these out and will update when I’ve tested them. 

My first item from Sleek is their CC Cream which I’m really interested in trying. I’ve never purchased from Sleek before so I’m really excited to try this as I’ve heard great things about it. I will update you on what I think of it, you can read about it here! The packaging is pretty simple but I like that, as long as the product works well. I’m hoping this will work well with my oily skin and large pores and also cover my acne and rosacea but we will find out soon. 

I then added lots more of Nailed London by Rosie Fortescue‘s nail polishes to my basket and collection. This is the first nail polish brand that I’ve literally had heart eye emoji eyes with. Her colour range is just amazing and the quality of all the nail polishes are so incredible and literally last 2-3 weeks which is soooo good! The quality is top notch. I purchased their Base Coat and lots of gel polishes including Man Eater and Thigh High Club which are both deep burgundy reds, Fashionista and Knight Rider which are both silver and blues and then Eye Candy which is a really nice grey shade. I am so excited to get my nails painted these colours when I go to get my acrylics infilled. 

Finally I added two more brushes from EcoTools as I loved my Domed Bronze brush so much I wanted to add more to my collection so I picked up their Foam Applicator which is a sponge with two different tips attached to a brush handle which is so easy to use. I love using my Sponge from Tarte and this is another great one to use and blend in my under eye concealer and blending in my foundation more. The other brush I picked up was their Airbrush Concealer Brush which is amazing for spot concealing and it has super soft bristles which I really like. The handles to these brushes are bamboo which are super lightweight and really easy to hold whilst using. I am definitely going to add more of EcoTools brushes to my collection. 

Also with my whole order I received a Summer 2016 goodie bag with a free canvas bag and lots of mini products to try. Some of which I had to give away to my mum as they weren’t cruelty free but I kept all the cruelty free products including some hair products from TIGI, Ciate nail polish, Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster and many more to test out and try.
