CRUELTY-FREE SWITCH | Stowaway Cosmetics


I just got it. I literally just got why the brand is called "Stowaway" as I was writing the title. It's because their products emphasize portability and convenience. They're small enough to literally stow away (!!!) in your purse or pocket, and they're also filled with good ingredients and are cruelty-free. Win, win, win.

This is yet another brand I discovered through Reading My Tea Leaves, whose blog inspired my attempts at minimalism and, now, also my make up.

When I first looked at their website, I knew I wanted to get some cruelty-free mascara. I was using Tarte, who themselves are cruelty-free, but their parent company isn't, so I was feeling kind of iffy about it all and thought I'd at least try out Stowaway's alternative.

If I added a lipstick, I'd get free shipping, but I didn't really need any. And then I proceeded to lose literally all but three of the lipsticks I owned, including my beloved Kinda Sexy by MAC. But MAC isn't even a little bit cruelty-free, so I took this as some kind of sign that it was time to try something new.

Overall: like 'em! They are small, obviously, and it's something I'm getting used to (I already lost and found the lipstick). They're simple and safe, and I'm thinking about purchasing their whole stater-set to use exclusively for traveling.

Once again, let me know if you have any cruelty-free favorites, validate me, etc.

PS. Let's hope this goes better than my last cruelty-free switch...
