Honeybee Gardens. Doesn’t the name just make you feel happy?
Born out of necessity starting with her husband’s aftershave, it all began in 1995 with Melissa J. Buckley whipping up elixirs in her kitchen. Now there’s a full range of natural cosmetics and skin/body care available online and in some health food stores. The packaging for the cosmetics is silver or clear and stamped with either an ornate design or a little honeybee.
The Eyeshadow Palette comes unfilled, and they send all the shades for the Canyon Sunset look individually for you to pop in (there is a magnet in the bottom of the palette so the eyeshadow pans will stick). What’s great about this is that if you use one shade more than the others, you can easily buy a replacement pan to pop in rather than needing a whole new palette! Also, you can create your own custom palette if you’d like. The eyeshadows are very finely milled, making them easy to blend out, but they still have excellent pigmentation to add depth. I personally love this palette not only for containing easy to wear matte neutrals but the pop of plum from the shade Daredevil is beautiful! This is a great palette for daily wear that can easily be amped up for nighttime with a little more eyeliner and using the two darker shades.
Queen Bee: Oh, how I love thee. It’s a gorgeous red lipstick, erring slightly on the cooler side. The formula is creamy and hydrating thanks to castor, sesame, and sunflower oils along with the accompaniment of candelilla wax, carnauba wax, and cocoa seed butter. I love that this shade is so bright and cheery, and as it wears off it leaves a cherry popsicle stain behind-it’s just gorgeous all around! Red lipstick lovers, this one’s for you.
What’s great about this company is that their cosmetics are natural and affordable. Oftentimes, natural cosmetics come with a higher price tag than conventional beauty products, but Honeybee Gardens mission statement is “Create pure, all-natural bath and body care products made from only the finest organic ingredients, offer them at a reasonable price, and treat every customer like a friend.”. I love companies that believe healthier beauty should be affordable to all!
