You can look and feel glamorous without worrying about a slew of suspect chemical ingredients that you might also be applying when you turn to mineral makeup. Whether you prefer bright and glimmering or dark, sultry and matte, Monave Mineral Makeup can get you holiday ready in fashionable shades without parabens, preservatives, dyes, and bismuth oxychloride in their purer formulations like the beautiful products I want to share with you in this review and giveaway.
Starting with the eyes, I picked out six of their Versatile Eye Shadows in some fabulous winter colors that were mostly earth tones. These long-lasting shadows are versatile enough to take you from the office to a holiday party and really made my brown eyes pop. Prime first and dance the night away without any fading or creasing.
Cafe Latte #51 is a shimmering medium brown glazed with silver, Smoked Jade #48 is a gleaming olive, Aztec Clay #38 is a lovely medium brown flooded with ribbons of copper and bronze, Divine #169 is a pretty pink-violet, Rustic Rose #15 is a deep red-maroon with a touch cinnamon, and #57, riveting medium golden-brown.
I swatched the shadows for you because the different variations worked well for blending and inventing countless new looks.

Monave's lip glosses are among my favorites. They always glide on so smooth and have such a moisturizing feel without stickiness besides deciding between any of their tempting shiny colors. Another plus is they aren't overly slippery to escape your lips like some other glosses you may have had problems with.
The four Liquid Lip Glosses I chose were: #167 Burnt Red (heavier on the brown than red), #165 Pomegranate, (red-brown) #12 (cool wine-pink), Tiger Lilly #166 (reddish-pink), a Sheer Lip Glaze in #503 Candy Apple Glaze (red with traces of gold), and a Lip Tint 91 Raisin (a wash of glossy berry-pink). These colors were wonderful choices with the eye shadows I selected for changing my winter look around with spectacular results.

With mostly warm colors, I went with a Pearlescent Blush in Desert Rose #202. This was a flattering natural red-brown with a subtle gleam that made my cheeks glisten.
The last product I got was a jar of the Vegan Rose Daily Moisture Cream. Honestly, I loved how silky my skin felt without any greasiness. My dry skin drinks this cream up and seems to bloom with softness and a glow of petal-pink color.
I loved all my products. Seriously, I keep working with Monave Mineral Makeup because I do like their products and have had compliments when using them. If you haven't tried any yet, I recommend a visit to their website to update your look for the holidays!
