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.
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.
