The 22nd of this month heralds the 40th annual celebration of Earth Day!  Read more below about things you can do to participate in Earth Day celebrations in your area.

Great Reviews

Sophie Uliano, author of Gorgeously Green and the Gorgeously Green Diet, wrote that she "loved this small company" and featured us in her weekly contest at gorgeouslygreen.com website.  The lucky winner received our Butternut Bronzer and Icy Shimmer Dust.

The first review of our makeup in Slovenia was posted by Helena of XOXOParisky.  She remarked that the eye shadow "stayed on their place for the whole day!"

In a Guide to Organic Cosmetics in the Style section of online Papermag.com, makeup artist Jessa Blades made over rock band Au Revoir Simone using, among other things, our eyeliner.

 
Consistency in Measurements

Recently, we standardized the amounts of the dry powder mini pinches.
- Foundation, Blush, Bronzer and Shimmer Dust are a Tad;
- Eye Shadow is a Smidgeon;
- Dry Shampoo is a Tablespoon;
- Dry Facial Mask is 1-1/2 Tablespoons.

Identical sets of measuring devices are employed to ensure consistency.

Have a Beautiful Day!
