All Day Coverage With Cruelty Free Cosmetics

As a busy professional, I need makeup that will last all day. I may be stuck at my desk, in meetings all day, or I just have so much going on, I don’t have time to worry about my makeup melting away. I found a reliable brand that offers all day coverage and they offer cruelty free cosmetics.

The Brand

The Merle Norman Cosmetics brand has been making cruelty-free cosmetics for over 85 years. Their focus has always been innovative skin-care and make-up products for women that are cruelty-free and tested only on human volunteers. For me this means a lot since I hate the thought of using animals to test human products.

Cruelty Free Cosmetics: The Products

Merle Norman Cosmetics started her skin-care and make-up lines and then passed the torch to her great-nephew who continues to carry-on the original traditions of the company. Both the Merle Norman Cosmetics skin-care and make-up lines are sold exclusively through their website and all of their products are researched, developed, manufactured, and packaged by them to guarantee the best quality possible.

Cruelty Free Cosmetics: Foundation

I love the Timeless Illuminating Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30! First, it is SPF 30 and for someone like me with fair skin, this is a must and it does not have a sunscreen smell which is often an issue with SPF products. I also love how lightweight the Timeless Illuminating Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30 feels on my skin.

This product also uses Brightenyl®, to help restore your skin’s natural tone and healthy-looking luminosity and Kombuchka™ to significantly smooth the appearance of fine lines and make your skin appear more plump and luminous which has been reported by the majority of testers to work!

The thing I noticed the most about using the Timeless Illuminating Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is that it gives great coverage without getting cakey or feeling like you have a pound of make-up on. Most importantly, after wearing the make-up all day, it didn’t leave me oily or shiny looking and the make-up stayed on all day.

Ultra Glow Powder Highlighter

This is a great product if you want a sun-kissed look. It is made with a mineral-based powder but uses liquid-powder technology so it goes on light and does not cake on the skin.

For everyday wear I usually do not use highlighter but I liked the Ultra Glow Powder Highlighter so much that I wanted to give it a try. Often when you use a product like this you have to be careful. Most highlighters I have tried end up making me look too shimmery or unnaturally tan. The Ultra Glow Powder Highlighter did none of that! The first day I used it I immediately had people commenting on how much I was glowing. A few people even thought I actually had spent time in the sun and had gotten a tan. That was enough for me to start using it every day.

Purifying Peel-Off Charcoal Mask

I love peel-off masks so I knew that this product was going to be a winner for me and I was not disappointed!

The Purifying Peel-off Charcoal Mask is a cooling peel-off mask that is boosted with natural black Charcoal. It is designed to absorb environmental pollutants, impurities and substances and make pores appear smaller and cleaner! The mask is made with antioxidant-rich Green Tea and Soybean Extracts to help soothe and calm your skin and utilizes a special blend of natural extracts that leave skin hydrated and conditioned

Part of what I loved about it so much was that it came with its own applicator which is good because otherwise, things could get messy. The Purifying Peel-off Charcoal Mask went on smoothly and after about 15 minutes it peels-off and leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
