The Lano Company

Friday, April 19, 2013

I must admit, i have quite the soft spot for super cute and innovative packaging!  So when the sweet people over at The Lano Company introduced me to their super fun line of cosmetics, i was instantly smitten!  The Lano Company was founded in 2005 by a breastfeeding mommy frustrated with her chronic chapped lips!  I can totally relate! When she reached for Lanolin to aid with this issue, she saw major results.  With this new idea in mind, she began experimenting with home-made lip balms until she found a formula that worked and so... The Lano Company was born!   They now consist of Pure and Glam Cosmetics!  These cosmetics are formulated with natural ingredients to keep your lips/skin hydrated and healthy.  While the Glam side caters to a younger audience with their flashy, fun packaging, the Pure line is sleek and gorgeous.

I was so excited to try the Pure Illumination Mascara for many reasons.  First, I'm always on the search for a great mascara... second, it has a built in LED light complete with mirror!  Whaaaat?!  So I'll admit that when i first began to apply this mascara, the LED light took a little getting used to as it was a bit bright!  Well, a few short seconds in and i was sold!  Here's the thing, i was able to reach lashes i didn't even know were there!  The light really is quite helpful!  In terms of the formula, i have to say, i was impressed!  It's a great everyday mascara with excellent stay power!  It didn't flake off at all and made my lashes look hydrated and pretty.

The Pure Illumination lip gloss i sampled in Purely Posh B16 packed on the shimmer and hydration!  This pearly rose is the perfect Spring/Summer color.  I think it looks especially nice on sun kissed skin!  A few swipes of this gorgeousness and you'll be ready to go!  Best part, your lips will feel soft and hydrated all day long!  Oh and no worries, the Pure Illumination lip gloss also comes complete with a mirror and LED light making the application process a cinch!  Particularly when you're out and need to quickly reapply... you won't have to search your bag for a mirror or light because it's conveniently there to facilitate your life!  After all, saving time makes this mommy very happy!

So lets chat!  Have you checked out any of these products?  What are your thoughts?  Isn't the packaging genius!
