It came! My personalized color and everything I need for the perfect application.

I’m one of those au naturel girls when it comes to beauty. I’ve never mastered winged eyeliner or false lashes, I rarely paint my nails, wear minimal jewelry, and prefer my air-dried natural waves to a blowout.

I LOOOOOOVE the smell and taste of lavender. Not the soapy, fake scent added to bath and body products, the fresh, grassy, floral essence of the real deal.
