THIS IS 39 – Favorites
Along my journey to turning 40 gracefully, I have come across some really amazing businesses run by some incredibly kind and helpful people. While I know I am no beauty expert, I just wanted to give a shout out to some really great people I have come in contact with over the past couple of years. The most fun thing about using clean products, besides knowing that it contains no toxic ingredients, is that most of the brands I use have incredible customer service. People who believe in amazing products that are good for you and work, and who want to help you find what works for you.
LEVERT BEAUTY – LeVert beauty has incredible customer service. Truly these people are amazing!! I have ordered a couple of pricey items with them and the color has been off and they have accepted the used palettes back with no question. They have also sent me multiple colors/shades of a product for me to try. And the thing I love most is that they write a super kind and happy hand written note in ever package they ship. It just makes me smile to get it. Some of my fave products from LeVert:
KJAER WEISS BROW BRUSH
ECO BROW DEFINING WAX
KJAER WEISS FOUNDATION
AYLA – This precious little shop in San Francisco is one place that I am DYING to go see in person. I am hoping my cousin Way Way will want to go to Napa next year for her 40th bday and that I can invite myself to go, so that I can make a stop at Ayla. Dara, the owner is a beauty (and also recently turned 40) and as kind as they come. My favorites from Ayla:
PLUME LASH AND BROW SERUM
I am a victim of the over tweezing days, and this serum has seriously helped fill in my brows as well as making my lashes grow. It’s a miracle.
You have heard me talk abou these amazing supplements. They are incredible.
TATA HARPER – As I said before, I loved getting to spend a day talking to a Tata Harper magician. This brand has an incredible following, and it’s because their products are equally amazing. My Tata favorites:
Botox in a bottle, but non-toxic. You are welcome.
ELIXIR VITAE EYE SERUM
See above, except concentrated for the eye. You are welcome.
LIP AND CHEEK TINT in VERY CHARMING
This is the perfect soft color for the cheeks.
BE TRUE LIP SHEER
I am pretty much a natural or very slightly pink or red lip kind of lady. This sheer is my fave for every day.
RMS BEAUTY is a brand known world wide, and is based right here in Charleston. I love a dewey face and these products from RMS make for the perfect glow.
I have used this for bronzer and eyeshadow.
LUCKY EYE POLISH
I love how this copper eye color makes eyes pop.
This product is amazing above the cheek bones and on the brow bone. It will make you feel like a magic unicorn rider.
All three of these products are perfect for a dewey face, which is how I roll most days in an attempt to be fresh faced :).
LILY LOLO MASCARA
This is by far the best mascara I have tried over the past 5 years. It doesn’t run and it volumizes really nicely and has great coverage.
PIPER WAI DEODORANT
It works. I have been using it for a couple of years and they just came out with a stick. Praise be.
Thank you to all of you amazing businesses for letting me harass you over the past 5 years and for helping me find the perfect non-toxic products for me.
