Fake Kittens

The excitement over finding new cruelty-free brands still hasn't worn off yet, so when I stumbled over Fake Kittens when I was scrolling through Twitter, I knew I had to try them out. 

I've tried their Thalia Matte Lipstick, Dorothy Matte Lipstick and their Lengthening Mascara and so far I'm pretty impressed. 

It was only the other day that I was moaning that I couldn't find any good quality, cruelty-free matte lipsticks which weren't ridiculously expensive and then came home to find that my Fake Kittens parcel had arrived. I love both of the lipsticks, with Thalia being a deeper red to Dorothy. They last well with eating and drinking and don't dry your lips out, which is a big problem that I've found with matte lipsticks in the past. For me, they aren't really as matte as I'd like, but they are beautiful colours and at £6.10 each, I'll definitely be checking out the rest of the range.

Lengthening Mascara
I don't really think that the mascara lengthened my lashes particularly, but it is properly black and isn't clumpy to apply. It comes with a second interchangeable wand and didn't smudge throughout the day, but it didn't really blow me away in terms of making my eyes look amazing. I'll keep using it but if you're wanting a mascara that will blow you away, this probably isn't it, especially when it costs £7. 

If you're looking for vibrant, nourishing, cruelty-free red lipsticks, I'd definitely recommend Fake Kittens, but I'd go somewhere else for a mascara if I was you.
