Many of us are trying to watch what we put in our body (food), around out body (cleaners) but why don’t we watch what we put on our body?
Make-up is part of most Americans everyday life. Have you ever paid attention to what is in your makeup? Did you know there are chemicals in our American make-up that are banned in other countries? Check out a few of them:
Paraben preservatives or alkyl-p-hydroxybenzoates (methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl)
Amine family Diethanolamine (DEA), triethanolamine (TEA), amonoethanolamine (MEA)
*~* All of the above information is from The Environmental Working Group’s Cosmetic Saftey Database.~*~
Then you have companies like forget me not who care about the ingredients of their products. Liz makes all of her make-up in small batches by hand. That means she knows exactly what is in them and what isn’t. Not only does this make a greener product but also a high quality product, it sticks around all day!
Honestly one of my favorite thing is that each product has an ingredient list, you know exactly what you are getting, another favorite? She sells refills in a small plastic baggie! Not only are they cheaper, since you are refilling the container you already have you are wasting less! I’m also impressed with how long the color sticks around. Here is an example of how and what I used on my eyes.
Nothing too exciting just the basics but look how it turned out:
I used the Ambercolor as a liner its simple to do with loose powders like this just use a tiny brush wet it down and dip it in the color. Then draw a line against your lashes. Then I used the same Amber color in my outside crease.
Lotus was my all over color
I used Buttercup as my highlighter
You can win these same 3 colors!
Liz is being very generous by giving one of you a set of her eyeshadow in colors that will work for everyone. This is a world wide giveaway, if you are from out of the country and you win I’ll have her ship it to me and I will ship it to you!

My favorite post of yours was “Thoughts on Thursday: Roomate vs. Spouse ” Right when you posted it, I was feeling as if my husband was my roommate. It just opened my eyes and we began talking about it and things have changed a bit for us. Especially the part about closing the bathroom door….lol.

The four colors I like are: charcoal, together, avocado, golden.
I really like everything about your blog, the products you review and the crafts you make. I think my favorite post, though, is called Taking Care of Myself. You are very open on your journal, which is refreshing, but I thought this post was especially vulnerable on your part and I commend you for sharing with us what is going on with you.
I actually never wear makeup. I’ve never been a big fan of spending the time to get ready in the morning so I just never wore makeup. Plus, I’m not that good with all the coordinating of colors either 🙂 Those colors you showed looks pretty nice though!
I’d get amber!
Here are my 4 color choices:
