We Believe in Being True

BeansTalk Note: The cosmetic line Being TRUE is an excellent well-kept secret. From the line’s start, we’ve had the opportunity to sample the various powders, liners, lipsticks, lip glosses. There’s something very precise and thoughtful and clean about their products, if that’s accurate enough for everyone to understand. So we’re happy to let BeansTalk readers about TRUE’s latest.

Being TRUE introduces new shades and limited editions of tools and colors. The new products feature lighter, natural shades.

As the weather gets warmer, and natural light reveals just how much makeup adorns faces, “natural-looking” makeup in shades of brown, bone and beige enhance true beauty.

In the bright light of a spring or summer day, a natural-looking, healthy complexion can be mastered. Shades of peach, pink, bronze and gold are natural hues found in all skin tones and when worn together, add and enhance luminance to all complexions.
