Cruelty Free – Amuse Bouche Lipstick

I was on Facebook one day and saw a list of cruelty free make up brands. I don’t really put much weight into what I see on Facebook,  but I didn’t see my make up brand – Neutrogena – on it. I did some more research and found that Neutrogena is NOT a cruelty free company. I guess I just assumed that we had reached a time where everyone figured out it is unnecessary to test on animals. I obviously assumed wrong and so now I’m a search for new make up brands.

That being said, I just received a Voxbox yesterday from Influenster with three amazing lipstick colors! I received these products for free for complimentary testing. They are called Amuse Bouche by Bite Beauty. Bite is a cruelty free company which I was ecstatic to hear!

They smell like citrus and contain 12 edible oils. Two of the colors I received were a little too bright for me, but I like to mix my lipsticks anyway. The color was bold and creamy! I especially like Pepper which is the color to the left. It’s kind of a nude/brown/pink color and I’m loving it. My previous brand of lipstick was Revlon – which, again, is not cruelty free. This lipstick retails for $26 which is a little pricey but not unreasonable considering the essential oils and bright color! Definitely would recommend 🙂

Stay with me on my journey to find better cruelty free products! Have any of you ever received a Voxbox from Influenster before?

    1. Just followed you back – I’m just getting into the vegan world 🙂 I did a little research, these are not technically considered vegan because one of their colors is derived from beetles and also contains beeswax. They are Leaping Bunny certified as cruelty free though which is a plus.

  1. It’s kind of cool how these monthly boxes are trending all over. I think it started with these beauty ones that started sending sample of new things every month (Birch box or something like that?) but now all kinds of other industries are doing them. I actually subscribe to a thing called Loot Crate, which is monthly swag from video games, comics, TV etc. I think I need to start a Bitter Box service which would include bitter things I find around the house. Think it would catch on?

    1. The best part about these boxes is that they’re free! In return, you need to write a bunch of reviews but they can be positive or negative. I think anything could catch on these days lol I heard about a guy shipping potatoes with messages on them for Valentine’s Day and he’s making quite a lot of money!

      1. Son of a gun! Maybe I should try that then.
        So they send you stuff as long as your review it on your blog? And they don’t care if it is negative or postive? Maybe I should start getting companies to send me free stuff. How did you hear about it?

  2. I love those colors! I have shied away from stuff like this because I have no plans to be overly nice (or, unnecessarily mean) about items. In other words, if I want to drop an f-bomb when talking about how much I hated something, I want to be able to, ya know?
