If you follow me on any of my social platforms…then you know that I got to attend Indie Beauty Expo – Dallas last week with some amazing women! I was so excited to be able to attend this year, as it had been held in NYC and L.A. previous years and I never had a chance to go! It was really convenient to have Dallas as central location to meet up with the ladies – as some live on the west cost and then some on the east!
It’s time for FRESH LOOK – where I share a favourite green beauty item, shop or site that’s revamped its look and branding! This is a completely new series – as are a lot of my series posts, but I’m diggin’ the idea. Whaddya think?
This past month green beauty shop and native to Boston Follain revamped their website, and I am SO into it! From their layout to their swatches of product, right down to their ingredient descriptions and restricted ingredient list….Follain has GOT IT GOING ON!
Happy beginning of the week! We all know how much of a makeup lover I am, so I just couldn’t let you start your week without sharing my favourite green makeup products! I adore all of these products so much and use most of them almost daily. They’re staples in my personal makeup kit, so I hope you get something out of this post and check them all out – plus end up loving them too! ;)
Spring is in the aaaair and Gabriel Cosmetics is launching the Radiant Beauty collection in celebration of the warmer weather! (Well, per my official statement at least!) This collection includes gorgeous varieties of pink-toned 5-free nail polish (you know how much I love me some pink!), an eyeshadow palette with cool, calming tones, a matte finishing powder and a matte soft pink blush, then finishes off with a beautiful medium toned nude lipstick!
‘Tis the season! December’s Petit Vour Beauty Box is feeling extra festive with its cute Christmas themed illustration, done by the talented Niina Pechkovskaya! The box itself this month is amazing! Chock-full of goodies that cater to your beautiful self – from haircare and makeup, bath and shower to skincare – this month has it all! There’s even a FREE GIFT for active Petit Vour subscribers, of (one of my faves) EVOLVh‘s Leave-In Conditioner (2 oz) with any full-size purchase of the featured December products! All you have to do is enter the code ACTIVE upon checkout. (Valid through 1/15/17) Such a great little perk!
I am enamoured with this months Petit Vour Beauty Box! It’s full of amazing, gorgeous products that will have your skin singing, even in this cooler weather!
I’ve recently been enjoying the monthly switch-up of illustrators for the description card that comes in each beauty box. The drawings are beautiful, no matter who the illustrator is – every time! This month, the design is by the wonderfully talented @daniellekroll. I particularly love the colour scheme! Pretty pops of red and blue, alongside pinks and other more muted shades. Danielle drew some classic cosmetics and skincare products lining two shelves. I think it’s the cutest thing – I’d personally blow this image up and hang it as a print in my bathroom! (Hmm, maybe I will…)
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!
