Au Naturale

Au Naturale is a wonderful cosmetics line that utilizes the purest ingredients to help you get your glow on.

Au Naturale founder Ashley Prange began her makeup range out of a need for a modern, organic, and principled makeup line in a cosmetics industry dominated by toxic ingredients and compromised ethics.  Ashley believes that no woman should have to sacrifice her health and values for beauty. Au Naturale connects professional artistry with environmental stewardship and social responsibility to offer all women an innovative makeup line rich in color, purity, and texture.  Au Naturale is an opportunity for women to guiltlessly indulge in an adventure with color, and make a beautiful statement to the world.  Her ultimate goal is to help our customers wear makeup that embodies their values and promotes their health - allowing all to live the life to which they aspire.Ashley formulated to create professional grade cosmetics that are elegant and clean. She personally produces each product, and oversees production in Green Bay, WI, USA.

I got the opportunity to try out some of this line and am duly impressed. Trillium Eyeshadow is a light tan color that is big on shimmer.   Like all Au Naturale shadows it is paraben-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, bismuth oxychloride-free, non-nano, carmine-free, vegan, cruelty-free and made in the USA at a certified USDA organic facility.  I will say that the sparkly can migrate to cheeks, but this is a work or play wearable color.  Unlike most loose shadows, this lasted all day on my lids.
I wore this with the Cream Concealer, which did a wonderful job of not-migrating and covering my Uncle Fester dark under eyes.  Some concealers are too dry (especially for those of us who are no longer 20), but this was creamy and gave me a dewy and not greasy look.

A huge new obsession for me are the lipglosses.  Au Naturale Lip Glosses come in an array of tantalizing tints that are highly coveted by our customers. Not only are they perfectly pigmented, our glosses are also nourishing and 100% vegan (no bee's wax, or carmine).  
Au Naturale lip glosses are free of preservatives, parabens, fragrances, additives, bismuth oxychloride, nano-particles, and sulfates.  They have THE most yummy scent.  I got Flirt and Orchid.  Flirt is a pop of pink that i am obsessed with.  Flirt is a vivid plum shimmer that works great on me for nighttime. 

I have to Au Naturale  will definitely be taking up more and more room in my cosmetics bag.
