Cate McNabb Cosmetics - A Cosmetic Line to Try

My beauty blog landed in the destined path of one of cruelty-free cosmetic lines: Cate McNabb Cosmetics.  If you haven’t heard of this line, you should be hearing more about it soon.

Cate McNabb Cosmetics prides itself on being cruelty-free, natural, and non-pore clogging.  There are no parabens, perfumes or any skin clogging polymers.  Everything is mineral based to give any woman a healthy and beautiful finish to the skin.  Her face makeup is even vegan friendly! I got the chance to try one of the new fall lipsticks, Cate McNabb Lipstick in Guava ($16). 

Cate McNabb Lipstick

Lipstick is one of the easiest ways to transition from season to season and I found the Guava lipstick to be the perfect transitional color into fall.  Guava is described as

…a rich, warm, mauve, provides bold but muted color and healthy hydration…

I totally agree with this description!  The color has the balance of warm and cool to work on an array of skin tones.  In certain lighting conditions, it can look more like a warm rose, then in others it looks like a rich soft mauve.  Either way, the color is truly a polished and bold.  Matte but not thick in texture, the formula allows for a non-feathery finish.  The color can be topped off with gloss to add some dimension.

I kept my lips matte and show them without flash which is the top lip picture and with flash (bottom picture).  BEAUTIFUL!

If I were to judge the entire line by the lipstick alone, I would say there are many great products to try!   Bold yet never intimidating, Cate McNabb has a refreshing quality and speaks to all women of any age.
