Why I Love Cream Blush + Five Brands I’d Recommend

I don’t think I’d ever even used a cream blush until last year. It just never occurred to me that it was something I needed in my life. But now that I’ve tried them, I would really rather not live without them. There are still many cream blushes I have yet to try, but so […] Read more…

Pacifica Eye Shadow Palettes Review + Swatches

I first became a fan of Pacifica from falling in love with their roll-on perfumes about a year and a half ago, and over the past year they’ve been coming out with some amazing makeup products also. They’ve added quite a few products to their makeup line in the last few months actually. It’s been […] Read more…

Review: jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick + Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper

One of my favorite natural beauty brands of all time is jane iredale and it is crazy that I haven’t mentioned them yet on this blog so this post is long overdue. I’ve featured their products in both issues of Sweet Violet Bride so far. Today I want to talk about jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick […] Read more…

Review: Antonym Ecocert Certified Organic Baked Blush + Eye Pencil

I’ve recently tried a few things from the new (in the last few years anyway) brand Antonym Cosmetics. Their bamboo containers were what first caught my eye, but when I found out their entire makeup line is Ecocert certified I was more than intrigued. As far as I know they are the only Ecocert certified […] Read more…

Natural Mineral Makeup from L’Eclisse Cosmetics

I’ve recently been trying out a new natural beauty brand called L’Eclisse (say lay-cleese). It means “eclipse” in Italian which I think is pretty neat. They sent me a few things to try and this company caught my eye because they do not use synthetic perfumes, oils, dyes or fillers in their products and their […] Read more…

Juice Beauty Review Part 2

Welcome back for another day of Juice Beauty reviews! Today I’m going over products I’ve tried that fall into the makeup section. I suppose the perfecting foundation and refining finishing powder could technically fall into this category as well, but I filed them under the complexion category for the purpose of these posts and you […] Read more…

Juice Beauty Review Part 1

This review has been a long time in the making and I’m splitting it into two parts because it’s that big. And justifiably so – Juice Beauty has become one of my favorite brands in the world and I’d say if I had to pick they’d be in my top three picks for natural beauty […] Read more…

Review: BITE Beauty Natural Lip Products

Today’ I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite companies, Bite Beauty. Specifically, I’ll go over my experience with their Luminous Creme Lipstick, Lush Lip Tint, High Pigment Pencils, and Superfruit Butter.

Top 10 Favorite Natural Lip Glosses

I’ve tested a LOT of lip glosses during the past 12 months, and I’m writing today about the ones that have made it into my top ten – and not only are they my favorites, they’re all natural. What exactly goes into determining which ones make the cut? Quality ingredients, consistency, color, natural scent if […] Read more…

Review: Osmia Organics Lip Luster & Foaming Cleanser

First of all, the name Osmia just sounds cool doesn’t it? And it really is. The word means to smell (in medicine, the inability to smell is anosmia) and every Osmia product is made with utmost attention to the scent and its aromatherapeutic benefits. I was completely taken by this brand as soon as I […] Read more…

Review: Alima Pure Mineral Makeup

One of my favorite brands lately is Alima Pure. I have plenty of blush, eyeshadow and finishing powder in my makeup drawer, believe me, but after Alima Pure sent me a few of their items to try I now find myself using them a lot. I feel they work well and should be in everyone’s […] Read more…
