For those of you that love organic, cruelty-free cosmetics and want to try different products, Love True Natural and Lavera Cosmetics is launching True Beauty Box on Dec. 15 and pre-registration is available on Nov 29.
The Makeup Examiner received an early release of True Beauty Box’s flirty box and it arrived in the prettiest packaging with a card inside with one of my favorite quotes. “For attractive lips, speak word of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.” ~ Audrey Hepburn.
Aside from the packaging is what’s most important…the cosmetics themselves. So, today the Makeup Examiner is going to tell you a little about Lavera and Benecos Natural Cosmetics. The Makeup Examiner’s flirty box contained Lavera Volume Mascara ($21.00 USD), Lavera Long Lash Mascara ($23.60 USD), Benecos Natural Lipstick in purple ($13.99 USD), Benecos Natural Lip Gloss in Kiss Me Red ($12.99 USD), Benecos Natural Lipliner in pink ($8.99 USD), and Sante Soleil Lipstick Balm in pink ($7.50).
The Makeup Examiner is in love with Lavera Volume Mascara. The mascara features organic Jojoba and wild rose and is paraben-free, plus it gives amazing volume to lashes. The Makeup Examiner didn’t get the same results from Lavera Long Lash Mascara, but this is a personal preference. Long Lash definitely defines eyelashes. It simply didn’t give the volume that I look for.
Benecos Natural Lipstick is a pure mineral lipstick that offers brilliant color and a cashmere feel. This lipstick is amazingly creamy, doesn’t have that gross waxy smell and has staying power. As if that weren’t enough, it is so nourishing to the lips and available in 10 shades. Benecos Natural Lip Gloss is another amazing product. It is a mineral lip gloss that delivers great color and shine, and smells delicious.
As picky as the Makeup Examiner is about pencil eyeliner, so too is she about lip pencil. It better be smooth and it better have outstanding pigment. Benecos Natural Lipliner is hands down one the best lipliners that the Makeup Examiner has ever used. The Makeup Examiner is also extremely particular about lip balms. Lip balm is essential to re-hydrate our pucker and keep it looking gorgeous. That is its purpose and rest assured that I have wasted plenty of green on lip balms. Fortunately, Sante Soleil Lipstick Balm makes it to the Makeup Examiner’s Holiday Must Have List. Soleil Lipstick Balm contains SPF 15, glides on and has the perfect hint of color.
All of the above products, along with ones that you’ll find at True Beauty Box and the Lavera website, are certified natural, gluten free, cruelty free and vegan. Plus, you receive three free samples with every order. To pre-register for the True Beauty Box program, visit the True Beauty Box website and keep in mind that it’s still under construction. All Lavera, Benecos and Soleil cosmetics are available at the Love True Natural website and select retail outlets.
