Madison Street Beauty Haul

Madison Street Beauty Haul


I’ve been familiar with Madison Street Beauty—an indie Etsy cosmetics store—for several years, but so far have never tried any of their products. I happened to see their recent birthday sale when I was looking on Etsy at inexpensive vegan lip balms for a project of mine and decided to purchase a few items.

Unfortunately, if you are vegan, most of the lip colors, eye and nail products contain carmine. There still are many options that don’t have carmine, but you’ll have to do some searching. All of the products I purchased are, of course, vegan.

During the sale, all of the lip products were $1 each, while the other products were discounted 60%. I ended paying around $15 for everything, including shipping.

I picked up four lip balms in Grapefruit and Tangerine, a lip sheer in Petal, a lip tint in Poison Berry, an eyeshadow primer, and two mineral eyeshadows in Taupe Luster and Bronze Shimmer.

So far I’ve been especially impressed with the eyeshadow primer. I thought it would apply white like the similar looking primer from Lunatick Labs, but it actually applies clear. It’s particularly useful for loose mineral shadows.
