July Cruelty Free & Vegan Friendly Subscription Round Up (Petit Vour & Lip Addicts Anonymous)

Hello Friends!

Well, this has been a weird summer. I haven’t been around much on the blog due to just being super busy with Liam and really pushing potty training and also starting the 21 Day Fix program (I will be reviewing that in a few weeks). If I’m not putting up blog posts I’m almost always still posting to Instagram or Twitter, so make sure you are following me both places! When Liam starts school in a few weeks, I will be able to get back to a regular posting schedule!

Since I am super behind on blog posts I decided to combine this month’s Petit Vour and Lip Addicts Anonymous posts! Let’s get into the goodness!

Up first is the July Petit Vour Box. If you are unfamiliar with Petit Vour (referral link*) it is a luxury cruelty free and vegan beauty subscription service. It is $15.00 a month and you generally receive a mix of full size and/or deluxe sample sizes of makeup and skincare. I LOVE Petit Vour and highly recommend checking it out!

This month we received two full size items.

First up is a Nail Lacquer from Aila in Doolish ($17). This super pretty coral shade is 5-free, non-toxic and vegan! I have been wearing this on my fingers and toes since the moment it arrived! Just a reminder to those who have been here awhile and for any new friends, I am TERRIBLE at painting my fingernails so please forgive the less than stellar paint job 🙂

Next up is the Mango Butter by Nubian Heritage ($13) I am usually pretty picky about body butter/lotion type products, for example I don’t tend to enjoy the scents of the various Body Shop lotions. Each lotion/body butter I have received from Petit Vour has been amazing and this is no exception! It smells yummy and feels so good! It’s also on sale at the Nubian Heritage site, so go check it out!

Since I live in super hot Florida mine melted in the mail and had to firm back up which is why it looks all bumpy.

I have not had any luck getting a natural/vegan/cruelty free deodorant to work for me (possibly because I haven’t found one able to stand up to Florida), but I live in hope! I haven’t tried Sexy Sadie (sample $4) but I’m going to be testing it out soon!

The last item in July’s Petit Vour Box is Luxe de Mer’s Gentle Face Cleanser (sample $9.75) from Luxe de Mer: Our blend of rosewater, glycerine and essential oils is the perfect cleanser for all skin types. I haven’t tried it yet, but it is going into my skincare items to try bin and I will let you guys know how it works!

Now onto the Lip Addicts Anonymous (LAA) bag by Kiss My Sass Cosmetics (referral link*).

Subscriptions2_large

Kiss My Sass is my favorite cruelty free/vegan friendly indie makeup brand. I’m obsessed with their perfumes and eyeshadows. LAA is $8 a month plus shipping. My total is usually $10.25, if you decide to subscribe (AND YOU SHOULD) your total may be slightly different depending on the shipping method you choose. Each month we receive one exclusive to LAA full size lip product, an exclusive 20% off coupon to use on any order for the month, plus several samples. Occasionally we get candy (yay!) and items from other cruelty free (not always vegan) indie makeup brands. Let’s get into the good stuff!

The full size lip product this month is a Sheer Lip Glaze in Keep Calm & Love a Soldier ($8). Keep Calm & Love a Soldier is a mix of red, silver & blue shimmers. It is vegan, dye free. lip safe and has an apple pie flavor.

On to the samples!

As American as Apple Pie Soap ($1) Apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream & a caramel rum drizzle. Vegan, Contains dyes. They are not joking when they say it smells like apple pie. I haven’t used it yet because it’s so pretty and I’m hoarding it for a special occasion…I’m not sure what kind of special occasion but I guess I’ll know it when it happens!

The next two samples didn’t really do much for me, mostly because I’m too old to get away with the colors, but I will be gifting them to a few little girls in my life who will flip out!

Mermaid Lagoon Sheer Lip Glaze and Island Cocktails Sheer Lip Glaze ($2 each) Vegan, Contains Dyes, Coconut flavor and Island Cocktail flavor.

We also received two pieces of Apple Pie Taffy! There is only one in the picture above because I may have eaten the other piece immediately upon opening the bag (please don’t judge me).

Another extra we received this month was a sticker with a $5 coupon from Darling Girl Cosmetics another cruelty free indie company. I have already used my coupon and received my order (YAY!). I’m really impressed with the Darling Girl items so far, but just a warning that some of their items are not vegan, they very clearly list all ingredients for each product on their website so it’s easy to choose the products that are best for you!

Well, that’s it for this super long post! If you have made it to the end, thanks for sticking with me! I should have more of a normal schedule towards the middle of August!

June’s Lip Addicts Anonymous by Kiss My Sass Cosmetics

Lip Addicts Anonymous

I am getting my June Lip Addicts Anonymous opening in just under the wire! Lip Addicts Anonymous is a new subscription service by Kiss My Sass Cosmetics **. LAA is $8.00/month (plus shipping) and you will receive one exclusive full size lip product, several samples and an exclusive 20% off coupon that can be used on any order for the rest of the month! It’s a great deal! Now, let’s jump into the goodies that I received in June’s bag!

This month’s exclusive lip product was a lip tint called Body Electric (6.00). It is a sheer wash of mauve/light purple. Body electric is vegan, dye free and has a cotton candy flavor.

Next up is a sample of KMS perfume oil in I Kiss Unicorns (4.00). This vegan perfume is described as fluffy marshmallow clouds and cotton candy swirls with hints of crisp pears, juicy nectarines and a touch of sandalwood. This oil smells exactly like cotton candy to me!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKiss My Guavas Eyeshadow Sample (1.50) is described as a shimmery salmon pink with a scattering of green shimmers. This eyeshadow is vegan and so pretty, although it’s a little outside my comfort zone of neutral eyeshadow!

We also received two extras in this month’s box!!

Elizabeth from Kiss My Sass included some Unicorn Candy (which Liam promptly ate) and we received an eyeshadow from Glamour Doll Eyes!

Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in IT’S SO FLUFFY!! (6.00)  I haven’t had a chance to purchase anything from GDE, so I was excited to see this eyeshadow included. The back of the eyeshadow container says that this is a LAA exclusive so I am assuming that means you can’t buy it on the GDE website. Also, this eyeshadow is not vegan.

I think Elizabeth (owner of Kiss My Sass) did an excellent job on choosing items for her second month’s bag and I can’t wait to get the July bag!

If you are interested in signing up for this subscription (and you should!) each month spots for new subscribers opens up on the 2nd at noon EST.

Have you signed up for the Lip Addicts Anonymous subscription? Do you have any Glamour Doll Eyes products you would recommend for me to try?

New Vegan Friendly Subscription: Lip Addicts Anonymous from Kiss My Sass!!

Subscriptions2_large

Hello friends! Today I want to talk to you about a new beauty subscription from Kiss My Sass* called Lip Addicts Anonymous. Kiss My Sass is one of my favorite cruelty free/vegan friendly brands. LAA is $8.00 (plus shipping) a month and you get one full size exclusive lip product and several samples of random other KMS products. May was the launch of LAA and it will be available again for signup on June 2nd according to the website.

Let’s take a look at the goodies from the May 2015 Lip Addicts Anonymous package!

First up is May’s Exclusive Lip Product:

Lip Glaze in Hypnotic: I wasn’t sure of this color at first because it looks very purple in the tube, but it is very pretty on the lips.

Perfume Oil Sample in Hypnotic: Per KMS website Hypnotic has notes of orange, peach, cherry blossom & white jasmine. I love the Kiss My Sass perfumes/perfume oils. I sometimes get samples of fragrances in a Petit Vour Box, but the only place I actually buy perfume from is Kiss My Sass. Per KMS Hypnotic is comparable to Love Spell by Victoria’s Secret. It is a very pleasant fruity/floral scent.

Cream Eyeshadow Sample in Sailors Demise: Per KMS: Sailors Demise is Sailors Demise is a beautiful shimmering blue-green shade inspired by mermaids. This is a very pretty color and I am excited to start playing with this shadow!

Eyeshadow Sample in Tattoo Shop: Per KMS Tattoo Shop: a black base loaded with blue & violet sparkles. Very pretty!

Swatches!

Here I am with my typical preschool drop off makeup look wearing the Hypnotic Lip Glaze:

I am already looking forward to receiving June’s LAA and I highly recommend giving this subscription a try, you can cancel anytime and this is a great way to build up your stash of lip products that are great quality and affordable!
