100% Pure Semi-Matte Organic Lipsticks

img_9856-2

A matte lipstick that’s organic?! I know, FINALLY, right?! I’ve had a handful of ladies ask me about a matte lipstick that contains safe ingredients, and preforms. In the green beauty world, there are few and far between. But, alas, here we have them! 100% Pure has put out a new Semi-Matte Lipstick (even though it says semi, I see it more of a “matte” on its own) that is made with mostly organic butters and fruits – but how did they get them to apply matte, you ask? Read more to find out, including my thoughts** on these deliciously gorgeous lippies!

Petit Vour’s October 2016 Beauty Box

img_9653-1

I’m always excited to announce Petit Vour‘s Beauty Boxes, but this month is somethin’ real special. Maybe it’s the fact that there’s a full size lipstick in there…you know me, I love my lipsticks! Or maybe it’s a combination of that and the rest of the amazing products –  of course it is! ;) Either way, you’re going to love Petit Vour. I mean, how could you not? It’s a monthly subscription box that contains amazing vegan, cruelty-free and non-toxic beauty products…for only 15 bucks! Say what, Sammie?! That’s amazing! Yeah, I know..wait until you see what incredible products you’re getting! The beauty box comes delivered with four deluxe-sized (and sometimes full-sized, hence the lipstick this month) products. Are you sold yet? Okay…sit tight because I’m about to show you what’s in this months box!

Joy Provisions: Luxe Natural Beauty

IMG_9035-2

I’m always on the hunt for new, safe and clean cosmetics, skincare, body care–ALL THE CARE, basically–that I haven’t tried, and will leave me thinking “WOW! This is goooood!”. With that being said, I recently had the chance to connect with Mimi, the owner of Joy Provisions: an all–natural, luxury beauty shop. I’ve had many opportunities to work with clean beauty shops, all of which were (and still are) awesome! So, what sets apart Joy Provisions from the rest? Well first off, Mimi is the warmest, sweetest lady! She is down to earth, so sweet and incredibly professional. There’s something to be said about someone who can be friendly, relational and professional at the same. I feel like it can be a rare trait to find! I also love her company mission:

Support is a big thing. Not everything deserves yours. We only pick the products that truly do.

[Pronunciation: Ritu-elle d’Fee]

I’ll be honest here; Rituel de Fille completely caught me off guard. Dark, gothy vibes…gorgeous deep, rich palettes – eyeshadows and lipsticks alike. I was sure they were off the market for me – then I found out they’re completely natural! This company is truly breaking barriers in the clean/green beauty community.
