Au Naturale Cosmetics is an organic, vegan and cruelty-free line of color cosmetics. I learned about the line at the Organic Spa Magazine event where I picked up the limited edition Beach Bombshell Collection.
The makeup colors in the Beach Bombshell Collection were selected by Sports Illustrated model Julie Henderson and Au Naturale founders Ashley Prange and Alexandra Sawyer. As a model, Henderson has had various makeup and beauty products applied for photo shoots and runway shows. The harsh chemicals in the cosmetics were starting to negatively impact the health of her skin. After meeting Prange and Sawyer, Henderson started using Au Naturale Cosmetics which are sourced and produced in the USA and are free of lead, fragrance, parabens, nano-particles and sulfates. It was only natural for Henderson to team up with the founders to create the Beach Bombshell Collection.
The Julie Henderson Au Naturale Beach Bombshell Collection offers three options for light, medium and deep skin tones.
Each Beach Bombshell Box contains:
- Organic Crème Eye Shadow Stick
- Organic Crème Bronzer Stick (Light and Medium boxes contains Luminous Color and Deep box has a dark warm tone)
- Organic Crème Highlighter
- Organic Crème Concealer (Light box contains Beige, Medium box – Buff and Deep box – Walnut)
- Natural Lip Gloss (Light box contains Flirt, Medium box – Poppy, and Deep box – Wild Lotus)
- Organic Lipstick (Light box contains Innocence, Medium box – Primrose, and Deep box – Ibiza)
The products in the Julie Henderson Au Naturale Beach Bombshell Collection are designed to be worn either together or separately to achieve a natural makeup look—especially beneficial during the hot summer months.
The Deep Crème Bronzer/Contouring Stick and Crème Highlighter Stick impart a subtle sheen to the skin and look best applied wherever the sunlight would naturally hit the face—such as the nose and cheekbones, for a luminous glow. The Ibiza lipstick shade looks bright red, but it’s actually a light, but pretty reddish-pink. The gloss (Wild Lotus) is similar in color, but sheer. The Organic Crème Eye Shadow in Palma, gives a subtle shimmer to the lids. The only item that did not work for me was the Organic Crème Concealer in Walnut. I tried to conceal a little bit of darkness under the eyes, but it had no effect.
The items in the Beach Bombshell kits are also available separately on the Au Naturale website.
The Julie Henderson Au Naturale Beach Bombshell Collection is currently $98 at AuNaturaleGlow.com.
