I’m beyond thrilled to finally chat with you guys about June’s Beauty Hero! It’s so good!! This month it’s all about Modern Minerals Makeup. I hadn’t tried Modern Minerals until now, and was so pleased to see it in the box. Beauty Heroes hasn’t done makeup in the past, so it was fun switching it up. I’ve chatted about Beauty Heroes before on the blog, but let me give you a brief description for those who may not know what it is.
Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot. A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people. Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands. Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box. I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy. By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them. Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards. What’s not to love about this whole concept? I recently joined Beauty Heroes as an Ambassador, and couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.
As I mentioned, this month Modern Minerals takes center stage in the box. This luxe makeup line was founded by Diane Reade. A designer at heart, she always loved makeup and the way it made her feel. She wanted to infuse her background in aromatherapy with makeup, and create a truly unique cosmetic line. After researching, she realized she also wanted to create a line that didn’t test on animals or contain animal products. Well, she definitely created something beautiful.
What’s even better than loving the Modern Minerals product is finding out that Lotus Wei is involved! If you’ve read my blog long enough, you know I’m a fan of anything they make. So I was happy to see them play a part in the Emotive Lip Glosses. You will find Lotus Wei infused in these luxe glosses. The flower essences and gemstones are meant to promote feelings of love, inner strength, compassion and living in the present moment. A lip gloss that makes you feel good from the inside out?! Sign me up! Let’s just say they smell amazing. With Pink camellia flowers + pink tourmaline and floral flowers of lavender, chamomile, rose and neroli-these lip glosses are a knockout.
The two lip glosses included in this month’s box not only smell amazing, but the consistency is spot on. Not gunky at all but a smooth texture. The colors are just perfect too. Here are my thoughts on them:
Padparadscha Lip Gloss-
Gives you a pop of color on the lips with it’s rosy colored hue. It isn’t overwhelming though, in my opinion it’s the perfect color for spring or summer. It’s a see through pop of color though, nothing dramatic-which I love. This compliments sun-kissed skin perfectly, and has me craving ocean breezes and warm summer nights. I love the smell as I mentioned above. The Lotus Wei infusion of flower essences is the perfect compliment to this already mood enhancing gloss.
Citrine Lip Gloss-
This lip gloss is another winner! A perfect nude that can be worn year round, it complements any skin tone. I love wearing this by itself or over my favorite lip liner. It gives my lips a nice glossy look. I also LOVE the smell!! You all know I’m a huge mint fan and this gloss has the freshest minty scent. Plus, it gives your lips a slight tingle for some plumping action. I’m loving both of these glosses!
Along with the lip glosses, a highlighter and eye shadow was included in this month’s box. Let’s just say my love affair with this line didn’t stop with the glosses!
Rose Quartz Eyeshadow-
This eyeshadow comes in a loose powder and quickly transforms drab eyes into pearly rose masterpieces. I applied this in my crease and blended it out. It looks sparkly in the container but there isn’t any sparkle once applied-just a nice shimmer. What I love is how versatile it is. You can make it more subtle or dramatic, depending on what you’re going for. Best part? It hasn’t creased on my lid! A new fave eyeshadow for sure.
Ok, I know I’m going to sound redundant but this Moonstone highlighter is another all star product. Dare I say one of the best natural highlighters I’ve used? I think so. It goes on so smooth and silky and leaves my skin with the perfect glow. It’s a cream texture which I love. I put this along the bridge of my nose, above my eyebrows in the middle of my forehead and along my upper cheek bone. The perfect way to accentuate and highlight your face. I even applied it underneath my brows and loved it too. It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy-the consistency is exactly what you want in a highlighter.
I was so impressed by the Modern Minerals line and can’t wait to try more! June’s Beauty Hero is truly a heroic product all around. The value alone of this box is $96!
