Plain Jane Beauty Foundation Review

Finding the perfect foundation match is like finding the perfect mate. It takes a lot of trial and error until you find the one.  Since going au naturale in my beauty routine the biggest challenge has been finding a foundation shade that matches my skin tone without having to do a bunch of blending tricks. continue reading

Luv Minerals Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches

The beautiful green divas from LUV Minerals Cosmetics sent me some organic lipsticks from their new collection.  These colors are bright and bold, perfect for anytime of the year. I was sent an array of six colors which you will see pictured below. I will say that I didn’t wear a lip liner, gloss, or add anything because I wanted you to get an idea of the full color for the lipstick. continue reading

This is the shade Sangria and it’s such a beautiful fuchsia pink lipstick. This is the perfect shade for the summer months because it’s so bright and bold. Every time I wear this shade I always get tones of compliments.SangriaEdited



This Marionberry lipstick is a nice neutral shaded lipstick. On my lips as pictured below it looks more mauve. On some deeper skin tones this would be a great nude everyday lipstick shade. The color is also buildable allowing you to create the pigmentation you desire.




This is one of Au Naturale’s lip-gloss in the shade Marita. This color is a deep purple almost plum hue. Even though the summer is still here I think this would be a great shade for the fall and winter months. If you are looking for a nice deep dark shade then this would be perfect. This shade is very pigmented especially since it’s a lip-gloss.
