Great eyeliner for a less dramatic look (I reserve my Urban Decay 24/7 for that). Good staying power and a reasonable price :) And cruelty free!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

I <3 <3 <3 this eyeliner! It stays on 24/7 for sure, and gives a clean crisp line or a smudged one depending on wether you diffuse it with a brush or not before it sets. The only downside is that it is so soft, that the tip breaks away very easily. Still, that softness is what makes it glide on so smoothly so I guess there's no complaining :) Also, it's cruelty free!
Skincare - Body -Yves Rocher - Arnica Hand and Nail Cream

I always have one of these at my desk at work - pushing paper I need copious amounts of hand lotion to keep those pesky paper cuts from getting to me :) It's cheap and quite good - and hey, it's cruelty free!!
I'm not a flowery kind of girl and mostly go for the darker scents like musk, frankincense and sandalwood, but this is one of the few floral scents I really really like :) And it's cruelty free!

I use this every night after removing my makeup - it gives my face a great 'workout' and makes it feel clean and happy :) And - it's cruelty free!
Cleansers -Yves Rocher - Hydra Specific Soft Foam Cleanser

Great cleanser - gentle and with a luxurious foam. :) I also love the pump which makes it very easy to use, and the affordable price - and of course that it's cruelty free!
I'm on my 2nd bottle of this, and it does wonder for my frizzy, color-tortured hair :) It speeds up drying time something fierce (I don't like using the blow drier) and leaves my hair silky soft. The big test will be to see how it keeps up with the tangles I always get in autumn/winter from wearing warm scarves...

Another favorite product of mine, and a staple at our house! My BF even find this mixes perfectly with Aloe Vera gel to treat sunburn :D The brand is cruelty free, which is essential for me.
Treatments (Eye) -Yes To Carrots - Eye Can C Clearly Now Eye Contour Cream

A great, soothing eye contour cream - I don't really think it does more than moisturize, but then it doesn't promise anything else either :) The jar is so huge and I love this cream so much I must confess I will actually use it on my whole face as a moisturizing treat after a scrub.. Also, this is a cruelty free brand, which I find essential.
