I am a big fan of the holidays, even the cheesy ones like Valentine's day. I simply love having a reasonable excuse to celebrate and enjoy the little things in life, especially with the ones I love! I am preparing for Galentine's day and Valentine's day one of the best ways I know how--by incorporating all of the red and pink into my wardrobe! That also includes incorporating more classic red shades into my beauty routine, starting with my nails and pout.
I received this perfect Valentine's day gift set by Austin based clean beauty line, Eleve Cosmetics. This is the limited edition Wink and Kiss gift set which features a full size Lip POP in "New York City," a bright orange red hue. This lip gloss is super nourishing, long-lasting, and has ZERO stickiness! I was amazed at how smooth it applied, and could not get over how non-sticky it was. I didn't even have to worry about it being a windy day. For an even more vibrant color, all I had to do was apply another layer.
The set also features a full size Nail POP in "Kissy," a true, classic red. This, too, applied so evenly, and only needed one layer and a long lasting top coat. The best part about this nail polish is it is non-toxic! Eleve just released its first line of non-toxic nail polish, Nail POP, which comes in 5 additional shades. My other favorites from the new nail collection are "Roxy," a deep eggplant color, "Clara," a sheer pink, and "Lily," a fun denim blue shade. The final feature of the gift set includes a pair of Eleve's signature Half Falsies for long, full, and flirty lashes. All of this is a steal of a deal for under $50, and would make such a great gift for your bestie, sister, roommate, mom, or yourself! *Send hints to the BF or husband*
One of my goals and personal resolutions for the new year is to make the transition from harmful, toxic personal care products to clean, better alternatives. (More to come on how I came to this decision very soon!) With this goal in mind, I am so excited and relieved to have found Eleve because of their commitment to creating "clean, all natural, vegan-based luxury products, allowing women to rise to their best self."
I can't wait to try more beauty products from this conscious, Austin based brand!
