Monave - Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Modern. Natural. Versatile.

Monave
started as a little seed...a dream to make
makeup by hand, with simple ingredients. The seed also had the expectation that the products had to be high-quality, high-performance. Monave didn't want to be just another so-so natural makeup brand. As my little tree grew, so did my dream. (from the Monave website).

Monave's philosophy is simple: We include ingredients that are either beneficial or benign that make our skin look softer and prettier, our eyes brighter, and our lips more smooth. We do not use ingredients whose sole purpose is to improve the look or texture of the product in the jar; that is simply not our mission. So if our liners look handmade, or our powders not so silky as Brand X, that's okay with us! Check out their ingredient list here.

I've really been enjoying my Monave makeup - I love how their products feel, and love the wonderful colors!


I had the chance to try Monave liquid glosses in three colors - Butterscotch , Tiger Lilly and
Allure. Monave Liquid Gloss glides delicate hues from champagne to mocha on your lips with a soft sponge applicator. A light, non-sticky silken formula conditions lips to keep them soft and supple, and the color stays put. Sexy, platinum packaging is perfect for your purse or pocket. The glosses are gorgeous, silky smooth and provide beautiful color.

Monave offers a full line of lip products, including liquid gloss, lip gloss (in shimmers and mattes), lipstick (vegan), as well as tints, liners, crayons and glaze.

Buy It!

Monave offers a complete line of mineral makeup, as well as Skin and Hair Care that can be purchased online.

Win It!

Monave is offering 3 lucky Silver Savings, Freebies and Giveaways readers each one full size lip product of their own! Giveaway is open to US Residents and ends 1/20. Winners selected via random.org and will have 48 hours to respond. Prize provided and shipped directly by Monave.

  2. I would pick the Matte Lipstick in the Hot Cocoa #172 color. I am SO addicted to lipsticks, chapsticks, lip glosses...anything like that. The color I picked reminds me of a shade I wore in high school (I refuse to say how long ago that was!) Would love to try anything from their line!
