I ran across Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques fairly early on in my gluten free makeup research. At first, the less than stellar website turned me off slightly, especially after I clicked a few links in the descriptions that simply did not take me anywhere. But all the unique products, colors and fabulous ingredients kept bringing them back to the forefront of my mind. On top of all that, Lauren Brooke really has a heart for, as they put it, “Empowering Our World”.
As stewards of our planet, we believe in honoring and respecting all of life. Our mission at Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is to help uplift, educate, and empower humanity. Because of our commitment to help make a better world, we contribute 10% of our profits to worthy charitable organizations and educational programs around the globe.

I love that they call themselves “stewards of our planet”. If everyone took care of what we have in our planet, we’d live in a much cleaner, healthier place.
One other thing that caught my eye…
Whenever possible, we obtain ingredients through direct purchasing to ensure fair exchange. Our Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Essential Oils come from Africa & India where local women process them to earn money to support their families, bringing economic relief to poverty-stricken communities.
Straight from the farmer! I love it! 😀 Not only is it good for the locals, it’s good for us! Lauren Brooke knows exactly where their ingredients are coming from and they care about those with gluten sensitivities. They know for themselves just how these ingredients are handled, how pure they are and where they are sourced. That boosts my confidence in and appreciation of the company greatly.
I got some samples in the mail a while back and have been playing with them ever since. In a few short words, they are fabulous! Everything has a remarkably nourishing feel to it while it covers and smooths in a natural looking way. I love how gentle and clean the products feel. There’s something very satisfying about it that I can’t quite put my finger on. All in all, Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a very worthwhile and rewarding brand.
That’s the short version right there. Stay tuned for detailed reviews of the stuff I got in the days to come! 😉
