☯ What's in My Closet; Madd Style Cosmetics!! ☯

Many of you know that I have been on a mad hunt for amazing and safe cosmetics. In my very picky hunt I have indeed found companies that meet my approval and I will be sharing them with you over the next several weeks. :) 

What will you find at Madd Style?

Upon entering the Etsy shop, you are immediately drawn in by the huge and adorable Sugar-skull icon and colorful banner. This alone compells me to explore further, because of that perfect mixture of fun, pretty, and punk. I am very happy to say that I was not disappointed.  

The fun and creative names of the cosmetics add that extra wonder to the wide selection of dazzling colors, and to the whole shopping experience. Hell yes, I'll take a lil "Kick-Ass" in my order ;). 

You'll discover a wonderful selection of cosmetics that are high-quality, safe, effective, and that are free of of talc, bismuth, harmful fillers, or any animal by-products. All of the products are Vegan and 100% cruelty-free, so you can sleep peacefully knowing that no animals were harmed in the making of these beautiful cosmetics.

The tantalizing selection of Eye Pigments left me sitting in front of my computer screen for hours trying to decide which ones I wanted in my immediate collection. But I'm certainly not going to complain ;). The shadows are beautiful and you can make them as subtle or as vibrant as you'd like depending on your application. They mix great and are perfect for any look. Coming back to that lovely punky-edge, the colors are simply too much fun and will make you want to be extra bold at even the most "formal" of occasions. 
I love the darker brown shades, such as "Dirty Beats" and the lovely plum-purple undertones of "Cruisin for a bruisin." To the wilder side of the color spectrum, I'm in love with purples like "Mondo" and "Electric Koolaid"; blue hues of "Jive Talk" and "Vortex"; the gorgeous green of "Ecto Cooler"; and of course, that lovely red tone of "Kick-Ass". One of my favorites in the collection however is "Cloud 9"; a beautiful silver-blue that stands out on its own or accents beautifully when blended with other pigments. 

But the awesomeness does not end at Madd Style's bold eye pigments. The shop also provides some lovely "Lip Service" to treat your lips, including some yummy smelling lip-balms and lip-gloss. 
I want to take a moment here to talk about lip-balms. I don't know about you, but I have found that most lip-balms do not do their job. They often end up drying out my lips instead of actually moisturizing them, resulting in a constant need to reach for the very thing contributing to the dryness of my lips. This has made me generally stay away from them. However, I was delightfully surprised when I tried Madd Style's Lip Balms. These do what they are supposed to do and they smell simply amazing! With ingredients including shea and cocoa butter, healthy oils and vitamin E, you know they'll treat your lips right. I was treated to "Cherry Bomb", "Iced Mocha", "Jack Frost" and my personal favorite "Pumpkin King." 
The "Uber Boss Lip-Gloss" is fantastic! It is subtle yet vibrant all at the same time and, once again, smells like heaven and is rich with good-for-you ingredients that will keep your lips looking supple and fabulous. From a girl who doesn't wear a whole lot of lip-gloss, I can't stop using this one! The one I have is "Knock Off" and I just love it!   

In a world full of nasty chemical cosmetics, it is well worth treating your skin right with beautiful and safe cosmetics. 
So what do I think of Madd Style? Pure love! 
As if the products weren't enough to make this company awesome, Mo, the lovely woman behind the solo-operation is as equally fantastic as her cosmetics. The customer service is amazing, helpful and friendly, and an absolutely pleasant over-all experience.

As stated in her shop "100% VEGAN 100%. WORTH IT!" 
I couldn't agree more. 

Peace & Love

  5. Oooh, you’re such an inspiration. I love this blog!
    How to Use Silicone Bakeware. Silicone bakeware is high-tech and easy to store and clean, which makes it an appealing option to many bakers.

  6. So what do you use as a if you need it..but if you did :) what do you use? Like I said before I am currently a 100% Bare Essentials user, because I thought it was natural, and I get all my products there...IE base, powder, eye shadow, liner, gloss mascara you know your basic make up kit.
    Thanks Leslie

  7. Yeah sorry love I don't use a base :p I need to look into that more though and maybe start using one so I can actually recommend some. I have used foundation and whatnot by two different companies that I thought were quite good, but again I don't have much to compare to :p But the companies were: "Zosimos Botanicals" and "Maia's Mineral Galaxy"
    I like all of their other products so I still feel comfortable recommending them.
