Hot Summer Makeup From Cool Natural Brands!

Like looking pretty but love using natural products? You can have both, you know. There are some great cosmetic companies that create lovely natural and organic makeup. You can get a soft summer look with the following products:

Josie Maran Argon Eye Shadow ($20.00 USD) — This is a beautiful shadow that is currently available in 27 vibrant shades. The website states, “each long-wearing shadow can be applied dry, or wet for more intensity. The innovative formula contains natural, non-toxic ingredients – no fragrances or parabens. What’s more, the beauty extends to the packaging: each shade comes housed in Josie’s state-of-the-art biodegradable compact.” I have a shimmery medium pink called Pinkalicious.  When I wear it dry, it gives a shimmery wash of color; applying it wet gives more intensity and it seems to last longer. Visit www.josiemaran.com to purchase and learn more about this shadow and other fantastic products.    

Korres Pure Nude Color Collection ($25.00 USD) This kit’s value is $42.00 so this is a real deal. The collection includes:

Shimmering Eyeshadow in Golden 24S

Pro-Vitamin B5 and Rice Bran Mascara in Brown

Cherry Oil Lipgloss in Nude 33

This is a beautiful collection of good for you products. The shadow is super sparkly and is great for a pretty bronzy look. The good for you mascara is not only smart but pretty and makes lashes so full. And the lip gloss — well this shade is perfect! A little shimmery and about two shades above my natural lip color. So pretty! Visit www.korresusa.com to learn more and purchase! 

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Sun Glow Powder Bronzer ($12.99 USD) — In two natural shades Spring ( with pinker tones) and Summer (darker, golden tones) one of these bronzers will work for you! Each palette has a trio shades to help you customize your look and they contain skin-illuminating, micronized pigments to create a radiant glow. This line by makeup artist Carmindy also contains great lip glosses and other pretty products. Visit www.sallyhansennaturalbeauty.com to learn more and you can purchase these at CVS and Rite Aid.

So don’t feel guilty about splurging on these products, they are good for you and the environment! Enjoy!

Let Your Hair Go Green with the TIGI Love, Peace & the Planet Collection

Love, Peace & The Planet Collection
Love, Peace & The Planet Collection

 Hi all, welcome to my Hair Extravaganza Week! I am reviewing only hair products this week at Forty, Flirty and Fabulous! 

Tigi is introducing it’s Love, Peace & The Planet eco-friendly line. This line of six products is made from natural, paraben free, and mostly organic ingredients that are as good for the planet as they are for your hair!

The products are:

Eco Awesome Cranberry Orange Mint Moisturizing Shampoo ($19.95 USD) — This is the BEST hair scent ever! When you first sniff the bottle, the smell of mint is dominant. But when you shampoo, the cranberry and orange infuse the shower with this incredible fragrance! This is great for the scent alone, but the organic aloe leaf juice, organic geranium, organic lavender and rosemary seed extracts and organic jojoba oil make this shampoo both cleansing and softening.

Eco Awesome Cranberry Orange Mint Moisturizing Conditioner ($19.95 USD) — Same fantastic scent as the shampoo! The conditioner includes organic aloe leaf juice, organic olive fruit oil, organic white tea leaf extract,  and organic glycerin. This product claims to moisturize, impart shine and help fight humidity. My hair does seem less frizzy when I use it.

Let it Be Cherry Almond Leave-in Conditioner ($18.95 USD) — This product has a creamy, comforting scent and is great when you don’t have time to condition in the shower or need an extra moisture boost. The ingredients include: mucor miehei and shiitake mushroom extracts, glycerin, organic shea butter and organic hibiscus and horsetail extracts.

Freak of Nature Lavender Citrus Eucalyptus Volumizer & Thickener ($18.95) — This is a good product for me since my hair is rather thin. The scent is nice but strong, you can really smell the Eucalyptus! I rub this into damp hair, making sure I get the roots, then blow dry. The ingredients include: organic Japanese green tea extract, organic pomegranate extract, organic nettle, organic glycerin and wheat amino protein.

Eco Freako Cherry Almond Texturizer ($22.95 USD) — This texturizer paste includes carnauba, soy and beeswax, hydrolyzed wheat starch, hydrolyzed soy protein and hydrolyzed wheat protein plus organic safflower oil, organic shea butter and organic jojoba seed oil. It adds shine and texture and you can mold your hair into fun and funky ‘dos.

Free Ur Mind Cherry Almond Firm Hold Hairspray ($22.95 USD) — This hairspray gives a firm hold without feeling sticky. The ingredients include: organic lavender, chamomile, geranium and aloe vera gel, panthenol and essential oils.

I highly recommend this line for healthy, green (haha) hair! Check out a TIGI retailer near you!
