Have you heard of Marie Natie Cosmetics? Neither had I, until one of their lip glosses landed on my doorstep. Well if you’re seeking a cosmetic line made with all natural ingredients, look no further.
The co-founders of this Toronto-based company, Marie and Natie are passionate about makeup, but wanted products made with all natural ingredients. For this reason, their lip glosses are free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals and phthalates. Instead, they are loaded with nourishing oils such as jojoba oil, pomegranate oil, sunflower seed oil and grapefruit seed oil.
Isn’t this a pretty color? It’s called American Beauty. I was definitely impressed with the texture of the gloss – it went on smooth, without any tackiness or stickiness. They also seemed to smooth out my lips, making them look a bit more plump (even though it’s not a lip plumper!). The scent is light and unobtrusive and the color is pretty sheer, so it works great as an everyday gloss. From now on, this will be my go-to, ‘running errands’ kind of gloss – for times when I’m just looking for something natural, subtle and not too made up.
Each gloss retails for $18 and they are available in 12 shades. So, what do you think? Would you give this new line a try?
