Jane Iredale is probably one of the earliest, if not the earliest cosmetic company to introduce a full line of makeup based on minerals. I read a lot about their products back when mineral makeup was the rage but the funny thing is, I never got to try them until now. If I recall correctly, I wasn’t too keen on some of the ingredients I saw and so I basically gave the products a miss back then.

I picked these makeup products from UNE Natural Beauty while shopping at Lovelula recently. They’re a new makeup label boasting certified green credentials and are backed by the knowledge and expertise of French cosmetics brand Bourjois. Products from UNE are made from 98 to 100 per cent natural ingredients approved by ECOCERT. Because I have no idea if the new range will work well, I only bought their foundation, concealer and lip balm.

Liquid foundation brush: yay or nay for skin?

brush for liquid foundation Liquid foundation brush: yay or nay for skin?

I’m using quite a bit of liquid foundation these days and have been trying out a few natural brands out of curiosity. At first, I relied mostly on my fingers to apply and blend the foundation. And the reason I use my fingers is because I find it easier to blend with them. However, I also noticed that they’re not the best for my skin because with some of the foundations that are slightly creamier and drier, there is a higher tendency of asserting more pressure and hence, pulling my skin while blending the foundation.
