Loaded with shimmer (not sparkle!); one dab will emanate your inner glow! Not glittery and not greasy, these balms glide on the skin with a silky, feather-light feel. Prepare to be obsessed.
Choose between Copper, Bronze, Pearl, Silver and Crimson. (But really, why choose when you can collect them all?) Use on cheeks, eyelids, brow ridge, collarbones...anywhere! Shimmer without sparkle, for a natural lit-from-within glow that is so easy to use. These generous pots will last a long time, even though you'll probably be using them all the time! :)
Copper warms up skin with red and gold tones.
Bronze provides an earthy, warm glow.
Crimson Aura was specifically formulated to give your cheeks a pinch of color and shimmer without staining, feeling greasy or being too sparkly. Yes, you can use on lips too ;) Note: this product has slightly less shimmer than our other Aura Accent Balms. An alkanet root infusion mixed with anthocyanin rich purple carrot extract offers a gorgeous sheer crimson hue.
HURRAW! uses a synthetic mica in Aura balms. In this case, synthetic means the “sparkles” are made in a laboratory from natural minerals vs. mined from the earth. Traceability, transparency, and safety is imperative when manufacturing cosmetics. Hurraw can trace our ingredients to the gram because we make it ourselves (no contract manufacturing).
Unfortunately, earth mined ingredients (micas, iron/tin oxides) are nearly impossible to track. Suppliers can rarely provide certificate of origin, proof of labor conditions, or documentation of what impurities they contain. We stubbornly refuse to use mined micas in our Aura balms due to contamination, heavy metals, and hushed labor practices.
Importantly, synthetic mica is third party tested to be free of antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium, cobalt, and nickel. It is also safety tested for human use, i.e. the particles of shimmer are much too large to penetrate the skin and have been thoroughly tested for safe cosmetic use.
Glass/Tin: In our efforts to reduce plastic, we chose glass and tin! Aura's glass jar and tin lid are 100% recyclable.
Tiny Air Bubbles: Rare but sometimes appear on the surface due to our pouring process. These do not affect the product quality or performance in any way.

Customer review on HURRAW!:
So...I've been a makeup addict since I was 12, and in those 48 years I've bought/used everything from Chanel & Clé de Peau down to E.L.F. and everything in between. This product is like some kind of magic I've never seen before. I got three - - this bronze, the copper, and the pearl cream. I've been using them as eyeshadows (the copper brings out the green in my eyes) and I also use this bronze one to add such subtle, believable sun-kissed color to my face. I like to very lightly self-tan, but this allows me to forego that. After applying foundation, I just run my fingers very lightly over this product with a little swirl and then tap on my cheeks, forehead, chin & over the bridge of my nose. Looks like I spent time in the sun w/o the damage; extremely natural, subtle & enlivening. I'm back for the scarlet one to use as blush & lipcolor. Hurrah for Hurraw!
