Natural beauty products you’ll love

In recent weeks I’ve been fastidiously searching for green beauty products as well as green makeup. Coming from a family of holistic medicine practitioners, this search is long overdue. We typically don’t think of eyeliner, foundation, or lip gloss as being natural. It’s well known that makeup products are loaded with chemicals and other ingredients that are not skin friendly. These however, are not and I’m super excited to share them with you all. There’s a multitude of natural beauty products available on the market. I’m filtering through to find the best ones and I can’t wait to share what I’ve found as we move forward. For today, let’s start with these wonderfully affordable green beauty products, all of which can be found on Natural Joy Beauty (promo code below).

GREEN-BEAUTY-4Natural, cruelty-free eyeliner by PRIIA Cosmetics

Natural is not even close to the first word I think of when I look at a pot of black eyeliner. For this reason, I’m really excited share this potted eyeliner by PRIAA Cosmetics that is natural and cruelty-free. Personally, I really like this product. It glides on with the consistency of a liquid liner and is easy to clean up if you make a mistake. The color is a true black and is a fantastic choice for everyday wear. The only down side is that it does smudge the upper eyelid if you apply a wide line. However, this also happens with numerous other potted eyeliners as well. I simply wiped off the top smudge and it didn’t smudge again. This one really stands up well compared to others and, since it’s natural, I’m definitely making the switch!

Joy was also kind enough to send me the eyeliner brush pictured above. I love how thin it is since it allows more room for mistakes when creating a winged line. The thin tip also makes is easier to line in between the lashes which creates the appearance of a thicker lash line. This brush is by Earth’s Beauty and you can find it here.

natural foundation
Lauren Brooke Creme Foundation with SPF 28 in (from left to right): warm NO. 10, warm NO. 20, neutral NO. 30, and neutral NO. 40.

Natural creme foundation with SPF 28 by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques

This creme foundation is made with organic and non-GMO ingredients including:

  • Coconut oil
  • Radish root oil
  • Argan oil
  • Rosehip oil
  • Green tea extract

It offers medium to full coverage, and has a nice creamy consistency. The clay in this formula was instantly noticeable to me. If you’ve ever applied a clay mask to your face, you’ll recognize the texture as soon as you try this formula. It’s a little different than other formulas you may be used to but it’s wonderful. Once applied, it looks natural and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, which is big plus for me. This is definitely a new favorite!

GREEN-BEAUTY-3 GREEN-BEAUTY-6Natural lip gloss by Pure Anada in “Hibiscus”

I absolutely love this natural lip gloss by Pure Anada. It’s highly pigmented and has serious staying power. It’s also vegan and made with:

  • Natural oils
  • Plant waxes
  • Shea butter

The color is on the darker side but it goes on lighter. This formula is really glossy and perfect for a night out. A gentle blot removes some of the gloss, leaving a hint of shimmer which is perfect for day to day wear as you can see in the center lip photo. This formula also really grabs onto the lips and is hydrating, I don’t know how they do it. Most hydrating emollients I’ve tried usually don’t stay in place and have to be reapplied, so I’m really pleased that this is not the case with this lip gloss. The lip photo on the far right is what remains after several hours of wear, eating, and lots of wiping with a napkin, it leaves a beautiful, natural-looking tint on the lips. This lip gloss should really be labeled as a 3 in 1 since you can get 3 different lip looks from it from glossy glam to a natural tint. This lip gloss and a few other pieces from Natural Joy Beauty are on my stocking stuffers list for this year. I can’t wait to share them with friends and family!
