Monavé: Mineral Makeup that’s pure, vegan and gluten-free


Happy New Year Everyone,  we are back! Stay tuned this year for some great features of the best products and services available for you and your family.      

I really like fresh, effortless, natural looking makeup.   I don’t wear a lot of makeup and when I do I prefer to use natural products that are safe for my skin.

I recently found a line of mineral cosmetics, facial care and natural hair care products called  Monavé. I really love their products because all of their ingredients are organic, gluten-free and 95% vegan.  They don’t believe in animal testing and their products are free of paraben, preservatives, dyes and bismuth oxychloride.
Something I love about Monavé is their product selection.  They have a wide array of shades that make the shopping process easy and fun. I got to try some of their eye and lip makeup myself and I really enjoyed testing them.

I tried their versatile eye powders, ultra mattes and eyeliners and their vegan lip glaze and liquid gloss. First of all I love the eye powders and mattes,  they are super easy to apply and my makeup stays all day long.  There is no need to touch up or re-apply makeup, being a busy mom I really have no time to touch up multiple times during the day.

Monave’s eyeliner is super smooth and creamy and just perfect for application. I love the color selection available and how easy it is to apply. 

The lips glaze is very soft and I like that a little bit goes a long way. It is perfect for my lips and it keeps them moisturized while giving them just a hint of color.   The liquid gloss is very shiny and pretty and it complements my look. I really like feeling pampered and knowing that I am using products that are safe for me and the environment.
I am really impressed with the quality of the Monavé products and I know I will be shopping at Monavé again. Their makeup is natural and safe and just what I need to look fresh and stylish at the same time.

    I've never heard of this line before and I appreciate your review. I like how it has staying power so you don't have to worry about reapplying your makeup. I'm going to go and check it out.

    I have never heard of this brand before, but it is definitely something I would love to try. Everything else makes me break out and this seems like something that would give my skin a better chance to breathe

    I love that they don’t do animal testing because it’s not necessary to do in this in this day
