Honeybee Gardens Review & Giveaway

It seems to me that the trend with natural cosmetics is that most can be pretty expensive. its discouraging to me because the average person like me can't afford super expensive makeup and it deters people from making the switch. the about a year ago I discovered Honeybee Gardens. They have natural cosmetics, hair care, body care and lip care and all at reasonable prices. I love this statement from them:

"At Honeybee Gardens, we believe natural, healthy body care and cosmetics should be affordable. We're not rich and we want good products. Solution: make them ourselves and share the love with the world!"
I've built up a decent amount of their makeup during that time. I started off with their water-based nail polish. Their is a good selection of colors, I have a few, and they wear well. I do recommend you get their nail polish remover to go with it as regular remover doesn't work very well. In addition to the nail polish, I also have a JobaColors Eyeliner and a PowderColors Mineral Color that I use for eyeshadow. I am more than happy with all of them. For comparison sakes, I just went to CVS.com to see what the prices of some mineral eye shadows are and the ones they carry range from $6.99 to $9.99. And those aren't even natural. The Honeybee Gardens mineral color is only $4.99.

Honeybee Gardens was nice enough to send me JobaColors Lip Liners to try out. I have't worn lipliner in a very long time so I was happy to get some to use. I thought it was funny that the two colors they sent me matched the typicl lipstick colors that I wear: brownish-berryish colors. The Lip Liner went on very smoothly and looked great. It also lasted a pretty long time. Unfortunately, I didn't have a natural lipstick to try with it so I used my regular ones. But now that I have this lip liner, I was inspired to order some Lipstick from Honeybee Gardens which should be arriving any day now. So excited!

Win
One lucky winner will receive THREE JobaColors Lip Liners from Honeybee Gardens. The winner will receive one of each of the following colors: Island Spice, Perfection and Zen.

    The first sounds great because I hate that I put all those chemicals right at my waterline, and I remember peel off polish when I was a kid, and I LOVED it.
