Best in Beauty 2016 | Natural, Green Beauty Products

Well it was some year!  I made the switch to Natural, Green Beauty and started this blog basically at the same time!  It has been a learning experience for both but am truly happy that I made the choice to do both πŸ™‚ As you are reading this, there are just a few days until Christmas.  I will be taking some time off to enjoy my mini vacation and I hope you can do the same!  Until than, I present, the Best in Beauty 2016: Natural, Green Beauty Addition!

Best in Beauty 2016 | Natural, Green Beauty


Best in Beauty 2016 | Natural, Green Beauty - Foundation

Of course I have to pick FitGlow’s Vita – Active Foundation!  I tried it and was hooked! I NEED to have this at all times πŸ™‚ I did try something else, but quickly went back to this. My Holy-Grail for foundation ❀  Check out my review here.


Best in Beauty 2016 | Natural, Green Beauty - Mascara

Unlike foundation, this year I was a little more adventurous and tried a few mascaras.  It was hard to pick just one because all the ones I tried this year all have a reason to be on this list.  However, Root Pretty 100% Lash Mascara hits all the boxes. It lengthens, separates, is black as black, and moisturizing to my lashes.  It does not smudge as much on me as some have. Check out my full review here.


Best in Beauty 2016 - Root Pretty Pretty Balm

I am not much of a “lipstick” kinda girl however, I did find one that I have reached for more than the others that are in my collection.  Root Pretty Balm in Doll is like a lipstick , lipgloss and balm in one!  That’s why I love it πŸ™‚ Check out my review here!

Lip Gloss

Oh man. This was hard! But I narrowed it down and down some more.  I cheated and have 2 LOL Common, give a girl a break πŸ™‚ FitGlow Good Gloss, which I just got but it is soooo good that I could not NOT put it in this round up.  BeautyCounter Lip Gloss as well is a favourite. Both are my favourites for a lot of the same reasons. Staying power, pigmentation and  the colours are amazing!  Check out my first impression for FitGlow Gloss here and BeautyCounter review here!

Setting Powder

Best in Beauty 2016 - Root Pretty Setting Silk

I have tried a few this year, but keep going back to this one by Root Pretty.  It is finely milled, mattifying and like the name suggests, silky.  It sets my foundation and concealer (when I wear it) nicely.  It comes in a few sizes too, so you can sample it πŸ™‚  Check out my review here!


Best in Beauty 2016 - FitGlow Beauty Eyeshadow Trio

I am not a big eyeshadow person.  I wear it in perts.  Since getting this Trio, I have worn it every day!  I love the colours, they blend amazingly well and the pigmentation are incredible. They are matte, which is my favourite formula and the colours work great for my skin tone and overall everyday makeup look.  Check out my first impressions here!


I am very minimal when it comes to my makeup (if you haven’t noticed from this list and my blog posts!)  I do not contour, highlight or wear blush.  I stopped using primer when I switched to Natural, Green products.  I have listed a few honourable mentions below as I do love them and do use them every day to date.

Although they are not Natural or Green, they are Cruelty Free! I love this pencil. So precise and the colour is bang on for my hair. (I wear Taupe)

  1. I’m currently working on a similar post, which should be up by end of this week (hopefully!). While I haven’t heard about most of the brands on here, I do feel that it’s important to choose natural and cruelty-free products. I’m slowly working on that/incorporating products into my routine. πŸ™‚


    1. Hi Jae! Thanks for stopping by. I love this time of year to read all of everyone’s favourites πŸ™‚ It is a processes and took me most of the year to match the switch to almost everything being Natural now πŸ™‚
