If you have come over from ‘Part 1‘ then it must mean that the last paragraph grabbed your attention, which is exactly what happened to me when I read the ‘About Us‘ section on the Kalon Kosmetics website. So as I was saying…all of the Kalon Kosmetics products are inspired and created by life…as in REAL life and all of the struggle it brings, such as Mental Health, Bullying, Lupus, Sjrogens, Fibromyalgia, Heart Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Sickle Cell and many more. Their mission is to remind us that we are all just as beautiful on the inside as what makeup can make us feel on the out. So how do they do it? I will tell you the story and the inspiration behind the beautiful ACHELOIS GODDESS COLLECTION to give you an idea.
ACHELOIS was a Greek goddess who brought healing and companionship to the world, so with this palette Kalon Kosmetics have sent her to help those suffering with Autoimmune Disease. 20% from the sale of an ACHELOIS GODDESS COLLECTION palette goes straight to the ‘American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association’ and was created to raise awareness, to educate the public and to facilitate research on this illness.
Information taken from the website,
The colours included in the palette are inspired by the various autoimmune disease awareness ribbons. The shade names are inspired by the healing Greek goddess Achelois.

The founder of this unique cosmetic brand is the beautiful Jaleeda who suffers with Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. She started off as a makeup artist who had a passion for making people feel beautiful and confident with her talent. Jaleeda started up an event called ‘You Can Make It’, where she visited homeless shelters to help women who had suffered from domestic abuse. She wanted to make a difference in the world and developed a group of volunteers, makeup artists and hair stylists to go and put some confidence back into these ladies lives.
