One of e.l.f’s newest launches, it’s worth noting that all their products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. Selling out in the USA ten times already, the Putty Primer is pure skin prepping perfection.

This creamy rich lippy is an absolute vegan makeup bag essential. Available in an array of shades from pink to earthy and nude or red tones, you’re spoilt for choice. Also boasting a brilliant magnetic closing lid, the packaging is a recycled cardboard box. Chic and extremely wearable, lips feel nourished and infused with a gorgeous splash of colour.
There aren’t enough heart-eyed emojis in the world to cover this Lime Crime beauty. The shades, their staying power, the beautiful box- it officially ticks all eyeshadow palette boxes. 18 colours mean you can blend and mix, or dip into tones for a standalone sweep. The shadows include matte rose In Bloom, metallic greeny-gold Laurel, iridescent peach Radiant, and my absolute favourite- the metallic pink champagne Stella. A worthy investment, the vegan and cruelty-free palette is nothing short of phenomenal, whether you’re a makeup pro or not.

Pur Cosmetics Out of the Blue 3-in-1 Vanity Blush Palette- Beam of Light
This genius light-up blusher from Pur Cosmetics comprises two shades, as well as a highlighter plus integral light-up mirror. Opening the compact is a light-up treat and makes application much easier. And, I love the way these shimmery shades swirl together and offer the ideal blush effect. Also infused with antioxidant ingredients, it protects against the ageing damaging blue light can do too.
To be honest I’m pretty fussy about shampoo and in the past have struggled with sulphate-free numbers not giving a decent clean and/or leaving tresses a little lank. But when I tried the Maria Nila Pure Volume Shampoo it was a total gamechanger. Specifically created for fine hair, the shampoo and its matching conditioner are vegan and free from parabens too. Smelling delicious, the pastel pink bottle also looks pretty chic in your bathroom. My hair feels squeaky clean and volumized too, and it beats the tangles to boot. Last but not least, these products include a Colour Guard Complex, strengthening the hair structure while fending off colour-fading factors such as UV light and heat damage.

With a complex including 7 alpine plants, papaya enzymes and high altitude maca, skin tone is evened out and luminosity added.
