Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont Nail Lacquer

Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont

Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont is a very cheerful and sunny orange shade that has a bit of sparkle in it. This shade is part of the Broadway Collection that I received. All of Adesse New York shades are cruelty free, made in the US, and, confirmed as vegan.

In addition, Adesse New York is “5 Free,” which means that the nail lacquers do not contain Toulene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. In addition, there are no parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMO’s,  or triclosan! organic infused! It’s infused with organic minerals, pigments, and essential oils.

Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont Nail Lacquer is excellent quality. The color, Vivian, is sparkling and vibrant, and whether I take a photo in direct, or indirect light, it is gorgeous. Adesse New York polish was very easy to work with. It applied with no problems, dried quickly, and was very glossy. I have two coats on all nails, but it was almost opaque with one coat. The other shade that I was provided, Iced Tangerine, I used on my ring finger. More about that gorgeous glitter nail polish in next week’s post.

I did apply a top coat so I could judge how long I could wear it without any chips. I found that I had a full four days, using my hands for everything from gardening to doing dishes, without any issues!

I highly recommend Adesse New York Nail Lacquer, and if you’re at all worried about ordering from a website, just know that Adesse New York has a great policy that if you don’t love the shade you purchased, you can return it for a different one! That should help anyone who is at all concerned about buying from their website.

Deco Miami Nail Lacquer Review & Photos

Deco Miami Nail Lacquer

Deco Miami Nail Lacquer is a cruelty free and vegan nail polish that I introduced you to in a previous post by the founder, Jules D.. I received the lacquer (in the photo below) as a participation prize for entering a Deco Miami Nail Lacquer contest for an Art Deco inspired nail art design. The shade is Brickell Blue.

Deco Miami Art Deco Design

The photo below shows a building in South Beach that inspired my Art Deco nail art design. That was the first time I ever tried an Art Deco design.

Deco Miami Nail Lacquer

Deco Miami is an eight free nail lacquer. That means that it is free of the following eight ingredients:

  1. DBP
  2. formaldehyde
  3. formaldehyde resin
  4. toluene
  5. camphor
  6. parabens xylene,
  7. ethyl tosylamide
  8. THPH

Where do you keep your humongous stash of nail polish? In a box, a drawer, or maybe even a shelf? Wouldn’t you love to have a nail polish that was so beautiful you would want to display it on your vanity? The diamond shaped box, with hand drawn illustrations of South Beach, is so beautiful. In fact, it’s so nice, I admit, I am keeping it! Yes, there is the beautiful box below, that has the Deco Miami logo, a diamond shape and circles, on it. Jules illustrated the boxes!! In looking at the website, I noticed that there are different hues used on the boxes, depending on the shade that you purchase.

 Deco Miami

For my Art Deco design, I was inspired by the colors on the box.

You can see how gorgeous two coats of Brickell Blue, a deep metallic blue is without my applying a top coat! I did use a top coat on all my other nails (which includes Brickell Blue, in a triangle at the top). I believe that the photos show that the Deco Miami Nail Lacquer nails (without a top coat) looked as glossy as the three nails with a top coat.

The other shades I used for my nail art were from another brand of vegan nail polish.

Here’s a close up of my nails:

Based on the Brickell Blue shade, I can write that I believe that everyone would want to display the beautiful Art Deco designed glass bottle on their vanity. The size is really cute, too; it’s .17 fl oz/5 ML. It was very easy to work with, and there were absolutely no issues applying it. I used two coats of the beautiful blue, but it was opaque in one coat. Totally smooth and glossy! I highly recommend the Deco Miami Brickell Blue! Check out their website, for current pricing, and more information.

Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Hurraw! Balm is a product that I have read is great, but haven’t yet tried. I’m guessing that I will love it because it’s certified cruelty free, vegan, and is chocolate flavored! Yes, Hurraw! Balm has many flavors of lip balm, and one of them happens to be chocolate. Like me, those who work at Hurraw! Balm love a dark, raw chocolate treat. While it’s not meant to be eaten, of course, it is so safe, you can lick your lips and not have to think about any chemicals that you might be ingesting.

Hurraw! Balm

Hurraw! Balm has a very clear label so you know exactly what you’re purchasing with your hard earned money. Here’s an example from the Balm in chocolate.

Hurraw! Balm

The ingredients in Hurraw! Balm are all plant based. It’s certified vegan, and cruelty free, and everyone reading this blog should recognize the Leaping Bunny logo on the label. It’s always inportant to check a company’s stance, but I appreciate that Harraw! Balm puts this important statement in writing, “…does not purchase ingredients from any company that at any point of their growing, handling, or production cycle involves animal testing. Each supplier and every purchase order is confirmed cruelty-free before it is added to our supply chain.

Hurraw! Balm ingredients are cosmetic and food-grade ingredients. Safety testing takes place on Human-animal panels via independent labs. All of the ingredients are guaranteed to be GMO free by the growers and distributors. As if that’s not enough Hurraw! Balm is Gluten Free, Soy Free, and Shea Free.

This is why you won’t worry about licking your lips after you apply Hurraw! Balm: it’s non toxic. There is no petroleum, parabens, synthetic preservatives, or artifical colors.

Hurraw! Balm

 

All of the ingredients are listed. All of the flavors in the Balm are from 100% natural sources, manufactured in the USA and are USDA food grade. Most are from pure essential oils. If you purchase Chocolate, Rootbeer, Chai Spice, Green Tea, or Black Cherry, they are made for Hurraw! Balm from 100% natural, organically derived flavor compounds through steam-distillation and various processes of extraction.

Just in case you’re going to ask, there is absolutely no alcohol in any Balm, or in any of the ingredients!

Here’s where you can find Hurraw! Balm, or purchase it online where you can check out the variety, and the prices–all priced under $5.00.

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 Review

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is a beautiful pink shade that I received and is described as being, “As bright and playful as the Corvette parked outside Barbie’s Malibu Dream House,” on the Lauren B. Beauty website. I was thinking of doing nail art with a Barbie theme, but I didn’t want to downplay just how lovely this hue, which has flattering blue undertones, really is. All ages will love Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Lauren B. Beauty polish is not only cruelty free it’s also vegan!

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 Review

Lauren B. Beauty polish is also five-free. That means that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In addition, it’s non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

With the exception of one of my fingers, I applied two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Can you even tell which finger has only one coat of polish? I used the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my fingers. That, of course, also applies like a charm, and dries quickly.

With Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210, I thought the shade looked glamorous no matter if I applied one or two coats. The polish applies so smoothly that you do not have add a second coat. There is no streaking.

The photo below of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 was taken at noon, on a beautiful, sunny day. I think that this is the only photo, that you can actually see that it’s my middle finger that has only one coat of polish. See how glorious the Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is?! All of the Lauren B. Beauty polishes that I have received have that same amazing formulation that makes it easy for anyone, even if you’re not a nail blogger, to paint your nails and have them look beautiful. No tricks, no special lighting, no extra effort required.

On my ring finger I applied the Lauren B. Beauty shade Greystone grey, and I placed a pink rhinestone above the pink lips. I actually had to look up the name for it; it’s called a “medusa piercing.” You may not know it, but my children are proud their ‘ole Mom is so hip!

And here’s another just to show you the slight color variation outside at 2 p.m.:

I can confidently write that I cannot imagine what you would not love about Lauren B. Beauty 90210. You don’t like that hue, then check out the Lauren B. Beauty website and choose a different shade!

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Review

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

I’ve have started to test Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS, the cruelty free and vegan cosmetic line where Gwyneth Paltrow is now the Creative Director of Makeup. I have reviewed Juice Beauty several times in the past, and those links are at the bottom of the post.

 

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

Here are the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS products that I’ve been testing:

  1. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Flawless Serum Foundation in the shade 02 Fair
  2. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Satin Lip Cream in the shade 14, Napa
  3. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Cream Shadow Stick in the shade mist, cream
  4. PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in the shade 18, Gwyneth

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS

I’d like to report my thoughts so far of the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS products. First, I went to Ulta, and they were very low on the Cream Shadow. So, I figured I’d try what was left, Cream, a neutral shade that was pretty, and sheer. It applied very smoothly, and had a nice finish, but it wasn’t that “exciting.” So, when it’s in stock, I would definitely like to try Horizon, which is a cool lilac.

The Flawless Serum Foundation in the shade “fair” was amazing! It provides medium to full coverage, and applies like a dream. It felt great on my skin, and I thought it gave me a great, natural look. I love that it felt very moisturizing. This is my favorite of what I’ve tried so far from the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments. A definite highly recommend!

The Satin Lip Cream in the shade 14, Napa was incredibly moisturizing, and I love the shade. I would highly recommend, and I will need to try other shades! I really love how smooth it made my lips feel. That’s due to the fact that it has Juice Beauty’s Moisture Plant Blend for hydration and the Phyto-Pigments blend of rose, moringa and eclipta daisy.

The PHYTO-PIGMENTS Liquid Lip in the shade “18, Gwyneth” was a beautiful shade! However, perhaps it was just a bad batch, but as you can perhaps see from the photo, it was unfortunately, very messy. For now, I can’t recommend this. I would like to try another Gwyneth shade and see if it’s as good as it sounds on the website.

I’ll update this post at a later date.
