Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Review



So I came across Pretty Zombie cosmetics before, but since it is a US indie brand and then you have (wimpers..) Shipping I never got round to ordering anything from them. Any way am know got my hand on some, well 3 in face shades . Thanks to Cute Cosmetics a UK make up store who stock a range of animal cruelty free and vegan brands.

I got one shade to start with has I heard many reviews and many were disappointed on the products.
As I type they are re branding the packaging but am not sure if this means there will be a change of formula. Its the formula that some have had issues with.  Any way back to my thoughts.

SugarPill and Limecrime Valentines sets


So this is kind of a late post but hey let's get to it...Valentines often bring out a fair amount of cute limited sets, So when Lime Crime and Sugarpill announced the sets they were bringing out , I saw the colours and fell in love with all the red tones that were used. However cause it takes a fair few weeks for any of the UK stockist to have them or on the other hand the shipping from the company direct it takes ages to finally get my paws on them. I also favour getting the brands within the UK to avoid customs. 

So lets have a look at Sugar pill. This is a Eye Shadow Pallete that comes with 4 large size pans with really nice and ( my go to colours) am a sucker for those red shades. The set also comes along with a liquid matte lipstick is a stunning shade and cause they came as a set I had to have it . The eyeshadows are soft and buttery and the colour pay off is really good . I also have used these shades for Blush , Contour and Highlights so its a pretty usable pallet for me.

Caked Make Up - Review.

Okay so if you have been on my instagram you will or might have seen me post a few images of new make up, lipsticks. Yes. I am a lipstick addict. I love my lipsticks. My normal go to brands are Limecrime, Beauty Bakerie and Jeffree Star. But have you heard of Caked Make up , No? Well they are worth checking out!

This brand caught my attention on instagram . Caked Make Up a indie brand which might be why you have not come across them yet also they are based in the USA . The packaging was the one thing to get my attention and I think it was seeing a shade on Sugarpills instagram ( I also like them too .) that I found them via. Any way I looked at the website , They are Vegan and animal cruelty free and  have super cute packaging . Liquid matt lippy . Then I stopped and looked again it is not a liquid matt formula but instead a Fondant formula.  Now I was going to review this right away when I got my hands on my 1st ever one but over the past few months I collected the whole range .Which is  9 in total . I finally have them all and wanted to share them all with you and my review on them too.




So going back to the website would of meant ordering via USA but I was overjoyed to fine Cocktail Cosmetics got the range in stock so that saved me on customs and shipping waiting time- wooo! I started off buying the brighter shades as the light ones on the company website , the shades and swatches looked way to light and I was not so sure on them. Also I found it hard to get a good image of each colour swatch wise for myself . I got hold of Power Trip and right away the shade is one of my favourites . I loved the feel of the formula compared to the watery runny or clumpy feels from the other ones but I was worried on the drying time.


''Lip Fondants go on with a mousse-like texture and dry completely matte. Apply a thin coat & allow the product to dry down completely before adding additional layers. For the longest wear possible, avoid foods with oil.''

You really do need to apply it with a thin coat and let it dry , they do not take that long to dry but I wait until its completely dry before moving on. They do feel a tad sticky at first but it drys and all is good. I do find they are pretty long lasting and they one wear down a little. They do transfer a samll amount all my cups and forks all had lipstick marks.Not full on marks but little bits. More so the darker shades. Even with that transfer they still last a long time. Try to keep off any oily food too cause that brakes down the formula .
They all apply well, The formula is thick but you only need a little of the product . They dry well but if there is to much product in clumps it will not dry well . So keep it super light. Also they all have that sweet smell of cakes. Which kind ,I can not quite place but they smell so good!



There is a nice mix of shades, Some are nice and bright and you have your more toned down shades , I will say I found the images on the website rather lighter on the model/ lips. It might just be me but I found them slightly darker in shade. But again that could be me.  I also love the cute heart text fonts going on here too! CUTE!


This is the packaging here as you can see its your doe foot stick applicator  and when you open it the smell is yum! Also please be careful not to load up the doe foot of product and always make sure you screw the lid back on tight!




Where are my Swatches of the shades left to right we have copy and paste , creme de la creme,  Foreva eva, QT, low Key , jelly , legit, sweet tooth and power trip. Out of them all I would say my go to shades are legit and power trip and then it would be creme de la creme and sweet tooth. To be honest I like them all it is some times hard to pick which ones to wear. 

Compared to the other brands I use I do like these. I like the formula. They do last a long time and slightly transfer like Jeffree stars ones. So far I have not found a lippy that has as much staying power as Beauty Bakeries ones. But I do enjoy these ones as they are cute, quirky and smell like cakes! And the shades are every day shades you could get away with or a little something to brighten up your day!

So over all I would give these a 9 out of 10 Kawaii stars!

My Animal Cruelty free Make up list

So this  post here is my findings on companies who are Animal Cruelty free and / or have Vegan products on sale too. Many are swapping to products and companies who are against Animal testing.
Since last year I also decided to swap my make up to cruelty free as well as my house hold products which is still a on going progress. Being a person who respects and adores animals the thought of some sweet creature being tested on for luxury or high street branded make up just to be smeared on my face for me, just to enhance my features at the cost of such torture .I will be honest it boils my blood and the process is totally not Kawaii!
