Mineral Makeup by Monavé

I just recently discovered a new makeup line that I am thrilled about.

Mineral makeup by Manove is a sensational line of cosmetics that are not only completely devoid of harmful ingredients, but rather these cosmetics consist of whole, organic botanical ingredients. All these products are gluten free, as well as 95% vegan; some products contain beeswax obtained from ethical bee farmers, and absolutely no animal testing.

The founder and president of Monave; Deborah Bilezikian, standards are very high. Deborah recognized that not all minerals are created equal, so she thus uses only those that are completely healthy and beneficial to the skin.

Deborah Bilezikian, Founder and President of Monave


I never like the idea wearing conventional lipsticks so for the longest time I searched for effective, vegan lipsticks. Monave definitely delivers with an amazing line of lipsticks and glosses that are made from whole plant materials as opposed to just solvent-extracts which is common in traditional lipsticks.  

The lipsticks are completely edible. I can now have piece of mind knowing that I'm not taking in any potentially harmful or nasty ingredients. The colors are flattering on any skin tone. You would naturally expect to pay more for high quality products, however, Monave products are very reasonable and won't break your budget.

The Lipstick and Lip Tints have excellent staying power.  Perhaps not quite as long as some of the long wearing lipsticks on the market, but long enough and I was pleasantly surprised that they held up after eating and drinking.  Neither dried out my lips and I absolutely love the colors!

I am thrilled to to have found Monave. To learn more or to make a purchase visit Monave.com
 


Deborah has kindly offered to give one of my readers their choice of lip product and color.
