Meet the latest and greatest in clean cosmetics, Clove + Hallow, a brand that blends a modern, high quality aesthetic with clean ingredients, along with high performance formulas at a reasonable price tag. Green beauty enthusiast and beyond, you’re going to swoon over this line! Clove + Hallow first debuted with a line of incredible lip products and most recently expanded their line to include a liquid concealer, pressed mineral foundation, makeup remover and a liquid lipstick! I got a chance to meet them at a recent event and was in love with the products right away.
Clove + Hallow was born out of the desire to create a safe, beautiful and affordable line of cosmetics that works for women of all skin tones. Fueled by her own growing interest in a cleaner lifestyle after dealing a “mystery illness,” MUA Sarah Biggers created the line as she found herself unimpressed with the current offerings in green beauty. With a “minimalist approach to formulation,” Clove + Hallow uses only ingredients necessary in creating their products “starting with skin-loving botanicals, butters and oils – and excluding more than 1,500 questionable nasties.” The line is also PETA-approved and vegan.
*A word about “safe:” Our clean makeup products go through a strict formulation process during which known carcinogens, endocrine and hormone disruptors, allergens and irritants, and animal by-products are excluded. We never use cheap or toxic filler chemicals, and the few synthetic ingredients we do use have been extensively researched and selected because they serve a real purpose within our formulas, such as preservation or pigment.
The Lip Glazes are highly pigmented glosses that boasts a lot of shine and long-lasting hydration. The formula is smooth – no stickiness whatsoever, with considerable long-wear. These are so hydrating that I can skip out on balm entirely. The beautiful and high quality packaging is certainly a surprise at this price point and its performance is exceptional. A twist tube releases product into a brush applicator. The Lip Glazes come in a selection of six shades, I have two of them to share with you today.
The Lip Crème is so incredibly creamy, while it easily glides across the lips, depositing intense pigment and a satin finish. Again, the formula is notably hydrating (my lips still feel hydrated even after I’ve wiped it away) and the wear is better than average, maintaining its creamy quality throughout wear. The beautiful white packaging holds together with a magnet, which feels so luxe. The Lip Crème is available in a selection of nine gorgeous shades, from nudes, to bright pinks, to deep reds.
Clove + Hallow is for the beauty junkie or pro who cares about the ingredients that touch her skin daily. So, whether you rock the basics or take risks with bold looks and new techniques, get ready in five minutes flat after hitting the snooze button one too many times, or budget half an hour to coax that one eyebrow into place—Clove + Hallow has you covered with clean cosmetics made from real, natural ingredients that really work.
