Clove + Hallow Sunrise Pressed Pigment Palette | A Look & Review

Let’s play with some eyeshadow!

Clove + Hallow is a cruelty free, vegan, and clean beauty brand. I hear a lot that it is more affordable, and in the green beauty space I would agree. However, it is still rather pricey in my opinion.

The Sunrise Pressed Pigment Palette contains six shades. Two lattes and four shimmers. It retails for $36.

It also has some nourishing ingredients for the eye area. There is rosemary, rice bran, and sunflower extract to protect and soothe the eye area.

The pigments are contained in recyclable cardboard, mirror free, packaging.

There are no shade names, so I will try to do a little bit of a description.

  • Copper shimmer
  • Champagne shimmer
  • Very light champagne shimmer with more of a yellow pull.

  • A matte chocolate brown
  • A matte warm toned brown, very orange undertones.
  • A shimmery gold.

I did a super light take on a halo eye.

  • I started by applying the warm orange brown on my inner and outer corner, and blended it into my crease, and up towards my brow bone.
  • I then placed the chocolate brown over the other shadow on the inner and outer corner of my eye and lightly into the crease.
  • After that, I used that sort of coppery shimmer and placed it on the center of the lid with my finger.

  • I took the orangey brown and buffed it along my lower lash area. I wanted to keep it blown out and simple.

Over all thoughts?

I enjoy this palette. I think the pigmentation is lovely, and the formula is rather creamy. I didn’t notice much kick up, which can be a bit of a problem with more natural shadows, which isn’t an issue for me. If you are into, or just getting into using more cleaner beauty items, I recommend picking up this little palette. You can get a variety of day time and night time looks, with very little effort!

My First Integrity Botanicals Haul | What did I get!?

Integrity Botanicals is a website that sells clean products. So no nasty ingredients! If you did not know, Integrity Botanicals also has a YouTube channel where the amazing Ashley from Green Bunny Video demos and reviews a tone of the products they sell on their site. Which is insanely helpful!

Let’s hop into my haul!

Something great about the Integrity Botanicals site, is that you can purchase sample sizes of some of the products! I took advantage of this feature to color match a few things, so let’s start there.

Hunt Beauty Duet Concealer $6 2 samples

People RAVE about this concealer, and I needed to try it. So I decided to start by sampling the sages fair and light. You get enough for a use or two. Perfect to match your shade, as well as see how you like the wear.

Lily Lolo BB Cream Sample $3

For this sample you get a foil packet. Lily Lolo is a brand I love, and I have been curious about their BB Cream, now I get to test it before I shell out the money for it!

Now for the full sized items I bought!

Lily Lolo Natural Mascara $20

This is a very popular mascara in the clean beauty space, and I have been dying to try it myself. The brush looks very fluffy and promising!

RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-up Cream Foundation $52

This is a foundation that Ashley raves about on both channels alllll the time, so I needed it for myself. I picked up shade 11. I am so excited to try this and let you all know my thoughts!

Not only can you purchase samples, but you get 3 free samples with every order. And the sample options are vast!

I picked up the Ritual De Fille Ash and Amber Eye soot in “Anima”, the Ere Perez Oat Milk Foundation in “Latte” and the Vapour Soft Focus Foundation in “100s”.

I am excited to try them all and give you some mini reviews!

What products interest you most in this haul? I would love to make some posts about them. Comment below!

Sephora Favorites Clean Makeup Kit | What’s Inside!?

Sephora has a clean makeup section now, and if you are just getting into clean beauty, I think the Sephora Favorites Clean Makeup Kit $29 is a great, inexpensive way to try out products from a few different brands!

However; the real reason I bought this kit was because it contains two products o was already going to buy, so I figured why not get them, plus some!

So, what’s inside?

Āether Beauty “Rose Quartz “Crystal Gemstone Single Shadow

The Āether shadows have a beautiful formula, and I’m dying to get their palettes. This shade is a beautiful shimmery pink. I am enjoying it as a one and done shadow. I pack it all over the lid, then buff it into the crease. Perfect for summer!

Tarte Sufer Curl Mascara mini size

I do have the full size of this mascara and I have been loving it! I love throwing minis in my purse, I’m glad I can now take my new favorite mascara everywhere, without it taking up a ton of space.

RMS Beauty Living Glow Face and Body Powder travel size

If used lightly, this gold powder actually works pretty well as a highlight for my fairer skin tone. However, my favorite way to use it, is to mix it in with a moisturizer and lather it on my body. It gives such a beautiful summer glow!

Lilah B Lovingly Tinted Lip Oil “B. Elegant” travel size

I love lip oils lately. I used to hate them, but something has changed! The shade is a beautiful nude, and feels very comfortable on the lips.

Kosa Sport “Pulse” Hyaluronic Lip Balm Full Size

This is one of the items I was already going to purchase; the exact shade too! I have mainly been wearing tinted lip balms in my day to day life. I prefer a more red tint to them, they just give the lips such a pretty look. This formula is fabulous! It gives the lips so much moisturization!

Ilia Color Haze Multi Use Pigment “Before today” Full Size

I have been hearing some amazing reviewers for the color haze pigments, so I was dying to try them for myself. This was the other item I was already going to purchase! The more I am getting into clean beauty, the more I am loving cream products. I mainly use this one on my cheeks. It’s easy to blend and lasts all day!

That is it for the Clean makeup kit! I highly recommend purchasing it, it’s a great price and full of awesome items!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | December 2016

vcd

*The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is around $22 a month. It is vegan, cruelty free, and tends to be for the most part, clean beauty. Sign up at vegnacuts.com *

It is time to un-box my favorite subscription box. The theme is “A toast to cruelty free beauty”. It features products that are favorites of the leaping bunny program. You can find them @leapingbunnyprogram on Instagram!

Devite Skincare Soft Lines Eye Liner “No.001”

vcd1

I actually prefer pencils that have to be sharpened. The do not break as easy. The Soft Liner is infused with jojoba oil, and can also be used as a brow enhancer. I won’t be doing that, because my hair is too light. It comes with a sharpener in the cap, which is super handy. Retails for $15.

vcd2

Creamy and very black!

Andalou Naturals Beautiful Day Cream

vcd3

This day cream is formulated with alpine rose stem, pomegranate, and aloe vera. It is 99% nature derived and non-GMO certified! It is meant to be gentle for sensitive skin, which I have, so thanks. It smells really good. Excited to try this out and get back to y’all.

Modish Polish “Control Freak”

vcd4

Another deep red shade. But that is fine by me, it is my favorite shade of polish to wear. This is a 5 free luxury nail lacquer. I have to say, I am in love with the packaging. It retails for $12.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Shampoo AND Conditioner

vcd5

I love that Vegan Cuts always counts shampoo and conditioner as one product. I am really enjoying getting shampoo and conditioners in this box. I am a firm believer that your hair gets use to a product after consistent use, therefore it becomes ineffective. I only wash my hair two maybe three times a week, so the travel sizes last me a while. I love Juice Beautys green apple scent, super excited to have these. This is a $9 value.

Crazy Rumors Leaping Bunny lip balm

vcd6

I have wanted a Crazy Rumors lip balm so badly! I was actually binge watching XoLeti videos on YouTube and saw this balm in a box that was elective last year and really wanted it. So, when I saw it in this box I was very excited! Obviously I support the Leaping Bunny program, so having a super cute product, from a brand I have been wanting to try, with their name on it makes me happy. I kind of want to order some and put them with Christmas gifts!

I hope you enjoyed this little un-boxing. Thank you for reading! What do you think of the products in this box? Which Crazy Rumors balm is your favorite? Comment below! You can also find me on Instagram and Snapchat as manda_janette (Snapchat for exclusive content!)
