W3LL People was founded in 2008 by a former NARS makeup artist/instructor, a marketing expert and a dermatologist. Everything is made with natural and organic ingredients with their signature component being aloe that soothes, hydrates and nourishes the skin, while Known harmful toxins, like parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and useless fillers have been left out.    As a girl who loves the visceral experience of luxury makeup, I was a little hesitant when the W3LL People products arrived at my doorstep via their PR rep.
