The Stain: Lip & Cheek Stain By Lavera from EcoVerde



Affordable and Natural/Organic/Eco don't necessarily go hand in hand, along with being able to find products easily [anyone else tired of shipping from US and AUS?] so I'm taking some time to review some affordable and reasonably accessible natural make up lines. I've been a fan of Lavera for a while since trying out their lip glosses, they are available on the high street and also online. I got mine from Ecco Verde which has a lot of affordable brands. Lavera make up products start at just £3.69 and they have a wide range of non toxic  products [their products have been certified organic by NaTrue]



I'm currently loving Lavera's Lip and Cheek Tint in Sunny Cherry, great for a subtle pop of colour and you can layer for a more intense look, I was pleasantly surprised with how vibrant this lip stain looks as I'm yet to find a natural brand that has a truly vibrant shade. At just over £5 it's definitely value for money and a handy make up bad essential for adding colour. I also use it on the apple of my cheeks and it works well with other products and stays put.


Lavera is a great alternative to those who like drugstore brands but want to transition to more natural make up, though they don't offer foundations for darker skin tones [surprise surprise] they do have other products that will work for us and help you on the way to cleaning up your make up bag on a budget!
