NVEY is the first, and only, certified organic cosmetic line (certified by the OrganicFood Chain and the Australian Government) in the United States. The line is a mixture of plants and minerals and is great for all skin types. Many of NVEY's products feature ingredients like beeswax, rose absolute, jojoba oil, chamomile, and vitamins A, E, & C. After applying makeup with ingredients like that, it would be impossible for your skin to not feel nourished, moisturized and healthy! While NVEY eco has only been in the US since 2006, its parent company (NVEY Le Maquillage) has been in the cosmetic industry for nearly 50 years. NVEY eco was released after 9 years of intensive development and testing. The NVEY company is based in Australia and must meet their stringent requirements.
The line also boasts incredibly long staying power. Now, I know what you're thinking. EVERY line says that their makeup lasts all day. So, I came to the store with nothing but my mascara on (not a pretty sight, trust me) and played beautician at 9:30 in the morning. I didn't look in a mirror until 3 and was impressed that not only had my foundation not rubbed off or absorbed into my skin, my eyeshadow hadn't creased at ALL and, despite eating lunch and drinking from a water bottle all day, my lipstick was still perfectly in place. And, amazingly enough, when I got home at 7, very little had changed.
I will warn you, the prices are a little higher than what you are probably used to spending (especially if you are loyal to the drugstore brands), but it is good for your skin, looks amazing and you really don't have to use much at all for great coverage. And remember, the line is new to us too... So if you come in and see a colour you want that we don't have, tell us! We'll happily order it in for you!

pinch of celery seeds
2 tablespoons dry red wine

2. Combine the chicken, tomatoes, garlic, sugar, celery seeds and wine in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours.
3. Combine the cheeses in a small bowl and sprinkle them over the chicken. Don't stir. Cook until the cheeses are melted, about 15 minutes.
