madison street beauty review and an amazing giveaway

 cosmetics are a tricky, tricky thing in the vegan world... 
not tested on animals? finished product not tested on animals?
animal-friendly? contains no animal ingredients?
vegan-friendly? all-natural? huh? huh?

and your head is spinning because
you want to keep your make-up bag cruelty-free, 
but you want quality products, too!

well, guys, guess what i have found...



their etsy shop states that they offer "100% natural mineral makeup 
including eye shadow, foundation, eye liner, blush, 
bronzer, lip balm and a wide selection of vegan cosmetics."

and oh boy is it true! 


i bought a gorgeous eye shadow color called mossy mauve.
it looked like a deep mauve with mesmerizing flecks of gold and green.
and now, it is my favorite eye shadow!






it glides on so easily!
the soft, mineral make-up can go on wet or dry. 
either way, it will make a bold statement.



looking for another color?
take a look at THIS 






wow, right? 
no more dull and boring vegan browns and tans!
madison street beauty has an entire rainbow 
of vibrant and bold pigments for you to choose from!






have a hot date ?
want a sexy, smoky look? 
try silver star
an opaque gunmetal gray 
with shimmery silver undertones.







feeling sassy? want a bright pop of color 
to match your fun mood?
try electric periwinkle 
a semi-opaque, bright periwinkle 
with electric blue undertones.






are you shy? sweet? 
looking for the perfect eye shadow 
to show youinnocence
try parisian pink -  
an opaque, powdery pink  
with light sheen.






the quality of these shadows will knock your socks off!
they rival the biggest names in eye make-up and eye pigments
at a fraction of the cost!
they are natural, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, 
non-comedogenic, gluten free, and oil free! 





spending tons of money
on expensive, name brand 
mineral make-up?
well, stop it!
try a mineral foundation 
they are soft, silky, 
and provide full coverage 
while improving the look 
and health of your skin.



if you have trouble 
finding your perfect skin match, 
try picking up a sample or two!
all of their mineral foundations 
can be purchased in a sample size 
to make sure you are fully confident before you purchase a full-sized product.






madison street also sells aloe airbrush setting powder! i purchased a jar myself, 
and i think it is amazing! it doesn't cake or look unnatural, it minimizes pores, 
diminishes redness, and best of all, it didn't bother my sensitive skin one bit!



and just like the big name brands, 
they also have highlighters, mineral blush, and bronzer!
get an all-over, all day glow that your wallet 
and the animals will thank you for!
what a gorgeous way to show how much you care!




lastly, one of my favoritestestest things 
(don't you love how i make up words? lol)
about this company is that they don't 
package their mineral make-up in leaky plastic bags! 
your amazing products will be packed in jar with a sifter! 
you have full control of how much you use!
no more dusty, colored fingertips 
and no more countertops smeared with wasted color!





i cannot say enough about this company and their make-up.
they get a top review score from me!

overall score:
 5/5
