Six Cruelty-Free Beauty Products I Won't Stop Talking About

Turns out, more than not, the majority of my beauty products are from companies that test on animals which does not sit right with me at all. I've made a resolution to be more conscious about where my money goes to and so if you're a beauty aficionado like me, here are six products that I use religiously, and to the best of my knowledge are cruelty-free:

1. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in "Trooper"

Oh boy, oh boy. This eyeliner is stellar. I have oily skin, monolids and shaky hands, which essentially means I should avoid putting things on my face altogether. But there is something in this magic super glue formula that works harmoniously with my pizza eyelids and the point is fine enough that I can somehow manage symmetrical-if-you-see-me-from-a-distance wings.

2. ColourPop Lippie Stix in "Brink" and "Lumière"

OK, so these colors are definitely similar enough that you really only need to own one, but they're just different enough that it's justifiable. Sort of. Anyways, putting this on feels like drawing on yourself with crayons which is pretty much the reason I enjoy using it.

3. Glossier Boy Brow

Will I ever stop talking about this brand? Probably not. (Dear Glossier, please sponsor me. You will get nothing in return, but still. Semantics.) There is a small forest on my face that moonlight as my eyebrows and I don't know what they're doing, but they're doing something. This doesn't transform you into an off-duty Calvin Klein model who drinks kombucha without flinching, but it does give you enough shape and volume to your eyebrows that you look put together. Watch out world, here come my caterpillars.

4. Glossier Haloscope in "Quartz"

I wasn't kidding about not shutting up about this brand. Haloscope is a cream highlighter and applying it is therapeutic, oddly enough. It's creamy, blends really well into the skin (I recommend using your fingers!) and it's one of the more casual highlighters on the market.

5. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Yeah, the name confuses me immensely too. All that aside, this concealer un-zombifies me in the morning and it hides all those gross blemishes that won't go away, even if you slather yourself with tea tree oil.

6. Iope Air Cushion Foundation

I've heard conflicting things about this product; either there's one sold every six seconds or thirty seconds. Either way, this is a must-have product for a mind-boggling amount of people and it's easy to understand why. Even though I have oily skin, it works well with it so I'm left with a demi-matte, dewy finish. I can see some people having qualms with this product though. From what I can tell, the color section isn't diverse and it's not long-lasting. However, you're supposed to re-apply it through out the day so it fades well.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
