Come, come, let’s gather, green beauty lovers! Today, let me introduce you to Kjaer Weis, a natural and organic cosmetic brand created by Danish-born, New York based make-up artist, Kirsten Kjaer Weis. So how exactly do we pronounce the name? It’s Kē-yar Wīs. Okay, that’s Danish and I suppose it might be verbally challenging for many of us in this part of the world but at the least, just try to remember the spelling okay?
Here’s an insight into my makeup habit: I can use a lipstick like forever. Which means, I rarely buy new ones. I’m quite contented with using the same color every day. Is that boring? I suppose but I don’t really care. I used to buy and own more of them but over the years, I’ve lost interest in lipsticks. I realized that they’re quite a waste of money for me because I usually just end up using the one I like and then leaving the rest to collect dust. Anyway, I told you all of that so you’ll not be too surprised when I tell you that this Ecco Bella FlowerColor Lipstick in Pink Rose is the first lipstick I’ve bought this year.
I was given some cosmetics from Couleur Caramel to try some time back and today, I’ll give a quick review on their lipstick and mascara. Couleur Caramel hails from France and offers a comprehensive range of cosmetics made from mineral and vegetal organic ingredients. The products are made without parabens, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol and PEGs, and comes with a Cosmebio Bio label.
When I posted about using weird face powder on my Facebook page last week, I was reminded about a post I wrote in 2009 using “interesting” colors like yellow, green, white, orange and others as makeup base to correct your skin tone. And coincidentally, I started using one of these bizarre colors again in my daily makeup and that color is purple.
Although I am no makeup guru, I actually love makeup brushes and I have quite a few in my stash. However, I’ve been using makeup sponges for awhile and apart from the small brushes, all others have been left untouched in my drawer for the past year. And it looks like they’re going to stay in there even longer now that I have this set of breathe brushes.
