Fun Friday: New Vegan Makeup

Hey everyone! I hope that you are well and had a great week. I'm still on the struggle bus a little bit. I've been having a hard time with my depression lately so if I haven't been commenting as much I apologize. I try to keep up as best as I can but sometimes I just need to be offline.

I haven't been really eating a whole lot lately so I doubt a Sunday post will happen. I will try to photograph some meals for you for Tuesday though.

I do have something to share with you today for Fun Friday. I am not sponsored by this company in any way, I'm pretty sure they have no idea that I exist. I just wanted to share because there was some interest in previous vegan makeup posts and these palettes are pretty awesome.


I can't remember if I saw Karity on Facebook on Instagram but it was one of those two platforms. I decided to peruse the site and was pleasantly surprised to know that all of their makeup is cruelty free and that their vegan makeup is clearly marked. I really love when companies do that because it takes the guesswork out of it and to be honest, it probably results in more sales. I will be much more likely to buy something when I'm positive that it is vegan.

I decided to pick up two of their 21 pan palettes: The Frost palette and the Nudes & Rudes palette.


On the left you have the Nudes & Rudes palette and on the right you have the Frost palette.


Here is a closer look at the STUNNING Frost palette. I am so excited to get into this and start playing. All of the shadows in this palette are shimmery and some straight up glittery. I am a sucker for all things shimmer so I am really excited to have such a wide variety of shimmer shadows. I'm especially excited to play with the shade "Crystal" which is that gorgeous blue in the middle row third in from the right. The pinks are pretty stunning as well.


If you have been looking for a suitable dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palettes I think this would work well for you. I don't know if the colors are the same, I doubt they are, but the nude shades are perfect for creating natural looks (and bold looks as well). There is mix of matte and shimmer shades in this palette and it would be a perfect palette to bring with you if you are traveling.

So I'll get into some of the logistics for you. Each of these 21 pan palettes is $29. You get free shipping over $35 and you can get a coupon code for $10 off your first purchase. I paid $52 for 42 shadows and to be honest, I'm not mad at it. I know it seems like a lot but it's a really great price to pay for two palettes. You do compromise on packaging quality but that doesn't bother me. The palettes are sturdy cardboard with a good magnet that allows it to stay close (they won't pop open). The shadows are very pigmented. I haven't had a chance to play with them yet so I don't know how they perform or how well they blend but I'll make sure to update you on that. They also have smaller versions of these palettes (I believe 15 and 9 pan palettes) so you don't have to get all 21 shades if you don't need them. 

As I mentioned before, I am not affiliated with this brand at all. I just like sharing new vegan beauty finds with you. If you are interested in hearing more about these palettes after I try them please let me know! I can do a follow up post with a review of the performance of the shadows and show you some looks if I can get some pictures that aren't gross, haha.

I hope that you all had a great week and that you enjoy your weekend! I'll be back probably on Tuesday, hopefully with some food to share with you. <3

  1. That blue is really gorgeous. I would love a follow up on how they perform. I think the more information on cruelty free make-up the better!

  2. These are some seriously beautiful palettes! Thank you so much for pointing them out - it's frustrating how many companies are still testing on animals, so I like to know who does not!

    I'm sending a virtual hug and tons of support while you are in this tough spot. You are amazing <3
