In the Mail: Stocking up at The All Natural Face!

Monday, February 2, 2015 - Posted by The Lipgloss Librarian at 9:50 PM

At the end of December I ordered a plethora of things from The All Natural Face, taking advantage of the 35% off sale. The All Natural Face products are already a pretty great deal so with this code I tried to stock up on all the things I thought I would need for the year. Tried. We'll see how that goes.

It's worth noting that this order came today, on February 2. The All Natural Face usually has a pretty long turnover time but it has been longer than usual lately. I have seen some rumors that the company has moved again, but the website has not confirmed this. If so I am sad, because I was really excited about them being in South Carolina, which I moved to in August! Anyway, I highly recommend buying from this company, but it is worth noting that it will take time for their products to arrive.

Age Defying Extracts Daily Moisturizer 1 oz. This comes in a large pump bottle. So far I have only tried it on my hands. It smells very strongly of lemons to me. I have mostly been using oils lately but I will try it on my face soon. I appreciate the packaging of this product because it is very sanitary unlike many moisturizers in jars.

Beauty Blending Sponge - Somewhere I believe I have an old mini Beauty Blender from a Birchbox, but it was too small to be effective for me. This is larger and feels denser to me.

Magic Vegan Eyeshadow Primer - .43 oz. - I have had the same tube of this for over a year so I decided it was time to replace it! I LOVE this primer. It is the closet I have come to replicating the awesomeness of Urban Decay Primer Potion in natural form. Similar to the Urban Decay product I don't love the packaging, as I think wand products are germy. But I deal, because it's AWESOME.

Black Kohl Diva Stix - I'm not really sure how I went so long without this! I don't wear eyeliner a lot because it is so hard to find a quality natural liner that has excellent pigmentation, doesn't smudge, and doesn't hurt to put on! Again, Urban Decay is the standard I am trying to meet here after years of being obsessed with their 24/7 liners. I'm not sure if this will have the same staying power and I doubt it will be smudge proof, but as you can see the pigmentation on this is amazing! I am definitely wearing this tomorrow. 

Dark Brown Diva Stix - This one is similarly rich in pigmentation. These glide on very smoothly. Honestly so far these seem better than any of my much more expensive liners! 

Deep Sea Green Diva Stix - For years shades of teal were my go-to liners and I considered teal liner my signature look. Then I went natural and it turns out it is not the most easy color to create naturally! Of the Diva Stix I think this is the closet to what I am looking for, but it is still not quite what I want. It is still a very nice green, but not the teal I was hoping for. 

Intense Violet Diva Stix - This one is a bit less pigmented than I expected but still quite pretty. This is light enough that it might be nicer as a shadow than a liner, but the beauty of the Diva Stix is their ability to be used in a variety of ways. There are also several Diva Stix for lips and I believe all Diva Stix are interchangeable in purpose. 


Vegan Glow Original, Ivory Rose Vegan Cream Foundation, Vegan Glow Wedding Day, Ivory Goddess Vegan Cream Foundation

Ivory Rose Vegan Cream Foundation - 20g I already had a small pot of this foundation and it matches me so well that I decided to order a larger pot. This foundation works best for me when I dig a bit out of the pot, melt it around in my fingers. I have never found a shade that matched me so well, but I always second guess myself, sooooo...

Ivory Goddess Vegan Cream Foundation 10g - I had to try the darker version. I think this will be my summer match. This shade would have been absolutely perfect for me over the summer while I was in Italy. I spent a lot of time outside on the beach - probably more time outdoors than this computer nerd had had in the previous decade - and ended up pretty tan as a result. 

Vegan Glow Original 10g - I did the glows a bit out of order. First I got the Desert Sand Glow, which I absolutely love as a blush and an all over face color. Then I tried the samples, and decided I needed this one, which is a delicate pink color and also works nicely as a blush and overall face brightener. The interesting thing about the Glows is that they have brighten without shimmer. I think I look good with a relatively matte face, so these are pretty perfect for me. 

Vegan Glow Wedding Day 10 g - This is another nice allover face brightener and I also like using it as a setting powder. 

So glad this arrived and I can start playing with my goodies! If you have not yet tried The All Natural Face - seriously - do it! 

And because I feel like it...
