Our Online Store Turns 1 Today! March 29, 2016 09:14 2 Comments

Sheer Blends' Online Store 1-year AnniversaryIt’s been 1 year since our online store opened its virtual gates. Where did the time go?
Looking back at the very beginning of this exciting and passionate endeavour I relive the hope, excitement, victories, and disappointments all over again. It hasn’t been easy, but I certainly learned a lot about running a business and about myself. I continue to hope that more and more women will turn to safe cosmetics and no one will have to pay with their health in order to be beautiful.
So what happened this past year?
  1. We expanded the range of our products: lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms, eyeliners, eye shadows, powder foundations, finishing powders, concealers and blushes are now obtainable from our online store, all 100% natural, vegan, gluten & GMO-free.
  2. Beside the online store, since January 2016, Sheer Blends products have also been available on Amazon – not an easy feat, considering cosmetics are regarded as a gated category and had to go through endless stages of approval. I’m excited to have this large platform where to promote my natural products!  https://www.amazon.ca/sheerblends.
  3. My makeup can also be found at The Tanning Place and Concept Spa in Newmarket, where you can see it and test it before buying: https://www.facebook.com/TanningPlaceNewmarket .
  4. I attended quite a few vendor shows and met many women thrilled to find local natural alternatives for their beauty needs. Sadly, I also met women who couldn’t care less about natural makeup and who walked by my products without a second look, heading straight to the nearest table with toxic-laden cosmetics. One of my goals this year is to reach at least a few of these women and make them understand that everything they put on their face is absorbed by the skin.
  5. Many of the articles I posted on the Sheer Blends’ blog were published on Ezine Articles, the leading article directory site on the internet, which led to increased online visibility of my store: http://ezinearticles.com/expert/Simona_Gruia.
I envision many exciting things for 2016 too. A few new products are already in the testing stages: liquid foundation, creams, toners, face masks, perfume, which will be available by the end of the year (some much sooner than that).
