Matte lipstick has certainly had its moment in my makeup routine, but I was beginning to phase it out and opt for tinted glosses. But after trying Glam Hippie I might just have to give the matte look another try. The texture isn’t overly drying like most matte lipstick formulas. I have found my perfect color by mixing two shades: 444 (a crimson red) and 33 a (a cool dusty rose).

There isn't anything easier than a multifunctional creme stick to make your makeup routine simple and effective. We are loving these creme stix from Monave which we double as a lipstick and cheek color for a seamless makeup application. There are a wide variety of colors from browns (Brandy, Quick Sand), to pinks (Pinkberry, Pomegranate), and even purple (Lilac, Lavender Ice) with both solid and shimmery options. Check them out here.

Monave is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that handcrafts and extensive range of cosmetics and skincare. Products include lip color, concealers, contour and highlighter, facial cleansers, exfoliators, and moisturizers. We appreciate both the cream and mineral-based products. If you are vegan, Monave even has a page to make it super easy to shop with your preferences in mind. Check out Monave's vegan makeup page here.

In the market for some new lip products? We recently tried Bossy Lipstick. With colors ranging from light to bold, the options are plenty! The Velvet Lip Liner set the stage and completed the look for the Liquid Matte Genius. What impressed us the most was seeing for ourselves how well the color applied and stayed in place. It withstood the test of time, even through eating and workday sipping! Coming from a company that prides themselves on being mission-driven and purpose-oriented, this product definitely follows suit! Check it out here.

Here's a refreshing burst for spring- LUA Skincare's WILDFLOWER Skin Tonic! Chamomile, lavender, and vanilla make an awesome trio, for sure. Designed as a soothing stress reliever, the colorful label itself is uplifting. The tonic also makes a great post-mask toner. We love the fruity-smelling blend....and it's vegan! Another plus, the packaging is glass and can be reused or recycled! Check it out here.

We are loving the aloe and amino acid cleanser from NIU BODY (pronounced "new body"). It is super gentle and leaves the skin cleansed and fresh. This cleanser is especially wonderful for dry skin and contains moisturizing aloe vera, repairing amino acids, illuminating green tea, and depuffing cucumber. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial preservatives, and animal by products. We also love that the website lets you know how long the product will typically last when used twice a day, which is about four months. Check it out here.
