#BNCproject: What's In My Cruelty-Free Make-Up Bag? | Beauty

For my third #BNCproject post, today I will be showing you my collection of cruelty-free make-up products!
e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain, £7.50
This oil-free foundation gives a semi-matte finish and a good, even coverage. Unfortunately, Porcelain is the lightest shade available and it's too orange for my skin tone.
Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Oil Free Foundation in Ivory, £5.99
This is my latest foundation purchase. This oil-free formula contains soothing moisturisers with skin-healing properties and should give a matte finish with good coverage. Ivory is the lightest shade available and it's a good match for my pale skin. I've only tried this out once so I can't say too much on it yet!
MUA BB All In One Beauty Balm in Light, £4
This is actually a full-coverage foundation that conceals, brightens and evens out your skin tone. The shades are created to adapt to your own skin tone. Light is the lightest shade and it's a pretty good match for my pale skin. This is a recent re-discovery of mine and I think it's great for a light, natural make-up look.
e.l.f. Pressed Powder in Porcelain, £3.95
This powder should melt into the skin for adjustable coverage and can be applied alone or over foundation. I haven't experimented with this much, but first impressions on the shade match weren't good.
e.l.f. Blush in Fuchsia Fusion, £3.95
This powder blush has great colour pigmentation and gives a lovely flush of pink to my cheeks.
e.l.f. Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky, £3.95
Quite a recent purchase of mine, this baked blush is fast becoming a favourite! It gives a subtle, healthy glow to my complexion with a touch of colour. Great for a natural or sun-kissed look.
e.l.f. Brightening Eye Colour in Butternut, £1.95
This quad palette has a great selection of browns which all have a shimmery finish. The pigmentation is good and you can achieve a natural or more built-up finish.
e.l.f. Flawless Eyeshadow in Smoky, £2.50
I love this palette; it's informative and allows me to create a dramatic eye for a special occasion.
e.l.f. Flawless Eyeshadow in Happy Hour, £2.50
Again, I love this informative palette and the colours are perfect for creating the perfect Spring/Summer eye. Great pigmentation.
e.l.f. Liquid Eyeshadow in Cream Dream, £?
I've had this in my collection for ages and had forgotten about it. It appears e.l.f. have discontinued this line. This brightens up your eyes and gives shimmery finish. The colour is buildable but staying power isn't great.
MUA Colour Blast Eyeshadow Tint in Loud, £3
This is a plum-coloured, smooth cream eyeshadow tint. I haven't tried this for a while as I didn't get on with it; it creased terribly and I couldn't get an even finish. Might have to give it another go.
e.l.f. Regular & Waterproof Mascara Duo in Black, £1.95
A simple mascara which comes in this handy duo with the option of black or waterproof black.
MUA Mega Volume Mascara in Black, £3
I use this for a more dramatic effect as it does give volume and the wand coats my eyelashes really well, giving a good, even colour coverage.
Barry M Lip Gloss in Toffee, £4.49
This is toffee-scented and gives a lovely sheeny finish on my lips with a hint of colour. I'd like to get more of these.
e.l.f. Hypershine Lipgloss in Fairy, £1.95
This shade gives a frosted-pink sheen to my lips. The formula is a little sticky and it's not very long-lasting. It has a pleasant scent.
e.l.f. Hypershine Lipgloss in Vixen, £1.95
This shade gives a bright, strawberry-pink colour to the lips. The formula is quite sticky but is slightly longer-lasting than Fairy. This is also scented.
e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips, £1.95
This hydrating formula gives a subtle natural pink sheen to the lips, with a shimmery finish. This has a lovely mint scent.
MUA Out There Plumping Lip Gloss in Candy Pink, £2
With good pigmentation, this gives a semi-matte finish in light, frosted pink.
MUA Power Pout Tint & Balm in Irreplaceable, £3
This buildable forumla allows for a hint of colour on the lips or a bold, colourful look in bright pink.
MUA Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Siren, £1
This classic red lipstick has great pigmentation and good staying power with a lovely matte finish.
