I recently received the Juice Beauty Perfecting Foundation and Refining Finishing Powder complimentary from Juice Beauty in US and I have to say that they impress me more than their skin care range. I know that the company launched their ColorCare makeup range sometime last year but I don’t seem to have seen them in our Sephora here. Either they are not here yet, or I’ve missed them completely.
Made with certified organic ingredients
Most of you are probably quite familiar with Juice Beauty’s line of organic skin care products, which are up to 98% certified organic. Their ColorCare makeup range follows the footsteps of their skin care line in using certified organic ingredients such as aloe juice, plant oils, fatty acids and fruit extracts combined with an antioxidant blend of goji berry, açaí, kiwi, blueberry, grape, pomegranate, cranberry, strawberry and raspberry. Other ingredients include minerals such as mica, iron oxides, titanium dioxide and ultramarine to add color. The products are preservative free, and meet the qualifications of the California Organic Products Act mandating products labeled organic to contain at least 70 percent organically produced ingredients.
Juice Beauty Perfecting Foundation 30g US$35
This Perfecting Foundation is described as being packed with organic ingredients that will leave your complexion looking refreshed and perfected. The combination of organic aloe juice, fruit extracts and minerals provides a cream to powder finish that will wear all day, while giving you a perfect airbrushed look and feel. There’s a sweet orange scent to this foundation that I found refreshing. The color that works for me is ‘organic ivory’ and what I like about this foundation is that it is lightweight and easy on my skin. The staying power is good as it doesn’t melt even under hot weather conditions. I think those with little blemishes and pigmented spots will find this coverage good enough for their skin. However, it is not able to conceal my blemishes very well and I might do better with a correcting concealer under this. I also found this a little difficult to blend with my fingers compared to the usual liquid foundation. Other than Organic Ivory, this foundation is available in two other shades – Sand and Tan.
Juice Beauty Refining Finishing Powder 10g US$22
This Refining Finishing Powder is described as being packed with organic ingredients that will leave your skin refined and flawless. The combination of organic plant powders, fruit extracts and minerals creates a lightweight matte finish that will wear all day, while giving you an airbrushed look and feel. Well, the powder works well with the foundation all right but by itself, it doesn’t create that flawless look though. The good thing about it is that it feels like a mineral powder and hence is very light and will not cause any caking. I like to pat some of this powder over the Perfecting Foundation because it does complete that slightly airbrushed, matt look. I’m using the Organic Ivory shade and the other two shades available are Sand and Tan to compliment the Perfecting Foundation.
Medium coverage with dewy glow
So here’s a picture of me and my boy posing his cheeky whatnots. I am wearing the Juice Beauty Pefecting Foundation and Refining Finishing Powder in Organic Ivory and I think the foundation and powder does a decent job of a medium coverage with a touch of dewy glow. I didn’t use any concealer in this picture and I kind of like wearing this look on most days when I don’t need that much coverage. I’ve also put together a shot of the coverage on my hand and yeah, I think it does give a someshat refining touch to my skin.
As I mentioned, I do like the complexion products as they are lightweight and do a decent enough job for daily wear. But even though the range is made with certified organic ingredients, there are some stuff in them that I do not really like – such as beeswax and zea mays starch. However, I’m generally less picky about makeup products in terms of ingredients as I’m more particular about their coverage and wearability so I’ll let those pass. Maybe I’ll try to get hold of the correcting concealer and see how much better that product increases the overall coverage.
