Gone Swatching xo - Green Beauty Blogger, Swatching One Lipstick at a Time

Welcome to my green beauty blog, Gone Swatching xo! I’m addicted to natural and organic makeup and more recently non-toxic skincare.

Like most, I shop for makeup at my favourite place … At home … Online … In my comfy leggings, cup of tea in hand, cat by my side.

Of course, there’s nothing compared to being able to try, swatch and feel makeup in person. So instead I created Gone Swatching xo. It’s a green beauty blog for you to find makeup reviews and lipstick swatches (my favourite makeup item!) before you buy online.

I’m not doing anything new as a green beauty blogger, but how many times have you looked at a beautifully styled promo photo? How many times have you worried about what it would look like on you?

We all rely on swatch photos provided by companies or other green beauty bloggers. So I’ve found it so frustrating that there are very few companies that use models with an Asian, or darker skin tone. I hope to change this.

I also want to share my love of the green beauty industry! You’ll find in-depth reviews on an ever growing range of natural, non-toxic and organic makeup and skincare.

For my own health, I truly believe that organic and natural is best for me, as well as our environment. I have very sensitive and reactive skin and I would rather go without makeup than use industrial grade chemicals.

After learning all that I have about the industry, I respect the companies that strive to provide ethical, cruelty free and effective cosmetics and skincare. With that in mind, you can always count on me to give honest reviews.

So wish me luck as I swatch one lipstick at a time, explore new skin care and just share my love for all things makeup. You can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest as well. I’d love to see you there!
