So I did manage to live up to some of my 2012 resolutions after all – I’ve been dabbling with more natural/organic makeup! Actually some of the brands I’m currently trying was available locally but funny I’m trying them only now, when they’re no longer being carried in our local stores. Somehow, the idea of buying items online appeal more to me, never mind it can be such a challenge to figure out what shades can work well for my skin tone especially when it comes to foundations. But with eyeshadows like the ones I got from Nvey Eco, the choice is definitely easier to make.
I’ve been eyeing this product like forever but I wasn’t ready to try it till recently. However, the product is no longer available locally and so I looked it up online, took a risk and ordered the foundation in Pure Sand. But what do you know? The shot in the dark turned out so precise because it is a perfect match for my skin tone! YAY!
I bought some new cosmetics from Naturisimo recently and scored this Trilogy Rosehip 100% Natural Tinted Lip Gloss for free. Isn’t the red so gorgeous? But being just a lip gloss, it doesn’t come out as a full red on my lips but just a hint of red. I realized that this product isn’t for sale at the moment but comes packaged as a bundle with the Trilogy Rosehip Oil. Looks like Trilogy is using this to test the makeup market but I wonder if anything more will come out of this.
Originally, I was thinking of trying out the VMV Hypoallergenics liquid foundation but after going through the ingredients and being concerned that it might turned out too drying for my skin type, I decided to pick up the VMV Hypoallergenics So Fine Pressed Powder instead. This product is validated as hypoallergenic and is free of fragrance, dye, phthalate and parabens. It is also indicated to be non-comedogenic, non-drying and suitable for all skin types.
Trying to fulfill all my 2012 resolutions is actually harder than I thought. I mean how difficult is it to use makeup which are more naturally formulated? Well, those of you on a similar quest will know what I’m talking about. IT’S DARN HARD! First off, you have issues of limited choices. Next, the issue of unavailability in our market. And I don’t even want to talk about wearability. So with that mindset, I was a bit skeptical about the Paul Penders makeup range when I was first introduced to it. I was even more doubtful when I saw that their mineral translucent power is white! OMG. Can this actually work for me?
