Review Disclosure

CFK does not receive payment of any kind in exchange for writing product reviews. All the products reviewed are either used in my professional makeup kit or have been used by me personally, and all reviews are based on my own personal opinion.

Many of the products reviewed have been purchased by CFK, and press samples are sent for consideration by manufacturers, PR companies and other brand representatives. So there is never any confusion, the origin of each product (whether provided for consideration, or purchased by CFK) is indicated under disclosure in the review details.


CFK Review Symbols

I review a mix of different types of products here on CFK. All products reviewed and featured are cruelty-free, but not all are exclusively vegan (I do review products with honey or beeswax), or natural. In order to help readers identify the types of reviews that may be of interest to them, each review contains a symbol to identify products that are vegan, natural, leaping bunny certified or owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free.

Leaping Bunny Certified: leaping bunny certified

Vegan-Friendly as stated by brand:Vegan

Natural & Eco-Friendly Brand:

Owned by company that is not cruelty-free:
