Once I returned back to the states from Chile, I was introduced to Sephora and fell in love. I got a little too excited at first with the spending and somehow got to VIB status. I’m actually committing to not spending so much money on makeup this year and finding drugstore alternatives so this will most likely be my last VIB sale. Thus, I’m planning on taking advantage while I can! Here is my last VIB Sale wishlist:
Everyone is jumping on the green makeup bandwagon. Some companies are genuinely making natural products, but they don’t live up to the pigment or quality as “regular” makeup. Some companies are greenwashing their products by making them appear to be non-toxic when actually they have the same levels or more of chemicals as regular makeup. Not everyone is privileged enough to dump out all of their makeup and go on a shopping spree to pay 30$ for one non-toxic product and more. Or maybe you have the privilege of doing so but simply don’t want to spend that much money on makeup. Here is a researched list of non-toxic makeup with a EWG score of 3 or below that you can find in the drugstore:
A few years ago, I was a vegan who only used all natural products. I remember being so dedicated that I would vehemently ignore the fact that I was extremely musky in the southern afternoons after wearing my all natural deodorant all day and insist that certain products were working great when they just simply weren’t, even if their mission was a just one. Over the past few years, I’ve become a meat eater again & am more lenient with certain products. For example, I have never come across a natural deodorant that actually works in 90 degree heat so I use my trusty Dove. However, I try to keep the majority of the products that come into contact with skin every day as organic as possible. These are the affordable organic skin products that have worked for me just as well as non-organic products and are ones that I actually enjoyed using.
