Talk About Cosmetics - Naked Truth Beauty

No matter the time of year I’m all about creamy products that make my dry skin look healthy, flushed and as glowy as possible. But, especially at this time of year, I like looking like I just came inside from spending an hour or two outside in the snow caroling and building snowmen. I live where it’s very cold and snows quite a lot so I’m not disillusioned into believing there’s anything attractive about a windblown and snow cold face. I don’t know about you, but I turn red and blue and purple and it isn’t cute, but I know how to fake it using cream products.

There is something seriously wonderful about a cream blush and highlighter pairing that makes you look like you’re radiating light from the inside out and that’s what Naked Truth Beauty does. They’ve been helping me fake looking snow-kissed and radiant while still looking natural and effortless. They also make it easy with their multi-use, hydrating and worry-free products.

Naked Truth Beauty is committed to socially responsible beauty, products that are good for our bodies, communities, and environment. They believe we should all have access to safe and sustainable products, so their entire line is made by hand by in small batches using simple but high-quality ingredients that come from Mother Nature herself. They also package their healthy, cruelty-free and non-toxic products in recyclable, compostable and/or biodegradable packaging (including their stickers and mailers) that are made from recycled material.

I received two goodies to try out and I’ve absolutely been loving them. I’ve had them for quite a while now but with being in the hospital and being sick for so long they kind of took a backseat. That is not, however, an indicator of their worth or value because they are truly excellent. I’m still unable to wear makeup most days but when I can I definitely reach for these two.

I got to try out the Beam Highlighter in Arwen and Promise Me, Rose Lip + Cheek. In addition to the Beam Highlighters and Lip + Cheek sticks, they also have an assortment of Lid colors. As a side note, all of the products have the cutest names, like As If, you have seen Clueless, right? And Wednesdays, it’s a hot pink color. Get the Mean Girls reference? And of course, there’s the one I picked. I was most attracted to the shade of Promise Me, Rose but Titanic is actually my favorite movie OF ALL TIME. I have seen Titanic an embarrassing number of times. Like upwards of 50. My family moved one summer and I didn’t know anyone where we moved (from California to Florida) so I just watched it on VHS every single day that summer. I can quote it almost verbatim.

Okay, sorry about going off about Titanic. Let’s talk about the products, shall we?

Arwen is an iridescent white-light highlighter that makes me shine in the most beautiful way possible. These very light icy kinds of highlighters always get my heart aflutter and this one is particularly special. It packs a really pretty punch but doesn’t look like I just painted on a ton of chunks of glitter or anything, like some other highlighters can do. It just makes me look healthy and I’m all about that healthy glow. It’s absolutely stunning. 

Promise Me, Rose is the prettiest rosy pink shade that is so soft and feminine. It’s gorgeous! This is one of those must-have go-to kinds of colors to have any makeup collection. I believe this color would suit anyone because it can be worn very sheer or built-up for more wow. It looks great on lips and/or cheeks and I really enjoy wearing it on both.

They are so beautifully formulated that they blend seamlessly into the skin. They don’t feel heavy or sticky at all and seem to just be a part of my skincare regimen. That’s how good they feel when they are on! They’re made with organic ingredients like Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Beeswax and Vitamin E (to name a few) so they feel so rich and creamy. I usually like to apply a cream and then a powder for lasting power but these last well without needing to be set. They are a bit firm when you first go to apply so you need to warm the product up first and then apply as you wish.

As you can tell from the photos, big scarves and messy top knots are the perfect finishing touches to any winter look.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has seen it a lot. I cry every single time! Even knowing what's going to happen it still gets me! It's so good. I love Celine, too. I actually got to go see her in concert and it was incredible!
