As any makeup lover would tell you, one reason that we are so drawn to beauty products is the wonderful spectrum of colours that light up our faces and our moods. Before the advent of mass produced synthetic dyes, colours came directly from the earth in the form of fruits and mineral pigments.
A closer look at the products in detail and also their ingredients. These products certainly do not skimp on design, each item is packaged in their own cardboard casing like a little gift.

On the skin, these colours were not shy at all and all swatched easily with good pigmentation and smoothness. The lip glaze was especially exciting for it's rich colour and slightly moist finish which gave a fresh look when worn like a stain. I'm wearing all the three 100% products in my makeup look below.

With a few free standing stores already in California, I hope that the line will continue to grow while preserving it's authenticity and integrity to natural ingredients. Personally, it was a great surprise to discover that natural dyes and pigments can be just as fun and colourful as the other options in my drawers.
