Like most, I shop for makeup at my favourite place … At home … Online … In my comfy yoga leggings, cup of tea in hand with my beautiful 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, as an online resource for you to find swatches and in-depth reviews on an ever growing range of natural, non-toxic and organic makeup.

Now I’m not doing anything new, but how many times have you looked at a beautifully styled photo of makeup, especially lipstick? How many times have you wondered what it would look like on you?

Like most, I rely on swatch photos provided by companies or other bloggers. There’s such a vast array available, yet I have found it so frustrating that there are very few companies that use models with an Asian skin tone. I hope to change this.

For my own health, I believe that organic and natural is best. I have very sensitive and reactive skin and I would rather go without makeup than use 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.

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.
