The Green Goddess Shop is an online shop created out of a passion for clean and healthy living. Aubrey, the owner, launched this shop after living in the Midwest which resulted in total frustration from the lack of available clean products there. She says it was also hard to turn to the internet because the internet can be confusing, conflicting and overwhelming,
I didn’t want anybody to feed scared or intimidated by going green. Any steps towards removing chemicals from your life is a good step and it should be made easy for everybody. – Aubrey
The Green Goddess Shop carries brands like 100% Pure, Au Naturals, Ellovi, EIR, Zao, Gia Minerals and more! I also love that they include a list of ingredients to avoid which is so helpful! You can check it out here.
Aubry sent me some Hynt makeup to try and to say I was excited would be an understatement! I love every Hynt product I’ve tried. They make one of my top fave mascaras; their ALTO Matte Powder Blush from Glowing Beets was love at first swipe; and I just got their LUMIERE Radiance Boosting Powder in my gift bag from The W.E.L.L. Summit and it is BANGIN! It’s a powder that offers the slightest bit of coverage and a glow/highlight that is visually arresting. But I digress.
Okay, a little bit about Hynt. Hynt Beauty was started when co-founder Meryl, after conquering breast cancer, was on a mission to make sure everything she was putting on her skin was as safe as possible. Through reading labels and educating herself she realized she couldn’t find a luxury makeup brand that met her standards. So she created one.
Hynt’s products, unless otherwise stated have been certified vegan by PETA and have recieved a low rating on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database. Their makeup is free of parabens, nanoparticles, petrochemicals, artificial preservatives and gluten. Plus they are heavy on the certified organic ingredients which you know I love.
SUITE Eye Shadow Palette – Sweet Canyon
How fantastic are these colors!? In this suite we get two shimmers and a matte brown. From left to right we see; Sweet Canyon – shimmer, Sweet Mulberry – shimmer and Sweet Midnight -matte. There are so many ways to work this trio. I love the lightest color, Sweet Canyon, as a brow highlighter or even just on the lid alone for an everyday look. I also love the dark brown, Sweet Midnight, by itself on the lid or blended into the crease with Sweet Mulberry on this lid. Not to be outdone by Sweet Mulberry in the crease and Sweet Midnight on the lid – SEE WHAT I MEAN?! The possibilities are endless! Shown below, I have Sweet Midnight on alone with the Hynt lip I will be talking about in a min.
Easy to create day or night looks and the colors are so beautifully natural – this palette will work with most skin types. A few things about application. I tired these formulas with and without a primer and they lasted WAY longer when a primer was applied first. I like AU Naturals Cream Concealer or the W3ll People Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer as an eye shadow primer. Also, a good blending brush will make for a seamless look. Lastly, I love that the eyeshadow case has a mirror on the inside making on-the-go touchups a breeze.
The eyeshadow ingredients here are: Mica, Amihope LL (Lauroyl Lysine), White Kaolin Clay, Jojoba Oil, Zinc Stearate, Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxides. This eyeshadow is vegan, organics-based, cruelty free, includes NO GMOs, gluten free, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), plus free of toxins, petrochemicals, parabens and silicones. It does not use skin irritating Bismuth Oxychloride, talc, FC&C dyes, phthalates and mineral oils. Lookin’ good ladies!!!
LIBRE Luxurious Lip Gloss in Satin Nude
One word; LOVE IT! You can see what this lip gloss looks like applied in the pics above. The color is super natural looking with a little bit of “Yeah, I went there” ‘tude to it. I also think it would look great on most skin types. Love this formula/color because it is swipe and go – no worrying about perfection or a liner like you would with a true lipstick. Plus it’s not sticky and goes on easily. Lips stay happy and moisturized with these stellar ingredients:
Organic Castor Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Candelilla Wax, Organic Shea Butter, Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Organic Grapefruit Seed Extract, Vitamin E, Mica and Iron Oxides. Boom.
