I love the idea of multisticks and cream blushes. They just feel so nice on my skin, blend so well, and look very natural. Staying power? Not always awesome. But how does this gorgeous multi-use blush from Vapour Organics stand up?
As we are heading into the colder months, my skin craves moisture. The weirdest thing is that my eyelids have a tendency to develop eczema, which is not only itchy and painful but super inconvenient because I like to wear eye makeup! This creamstick works well in so many ways and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eye area one little bit!
Some of you may know this already, but my eyelids are extremely sensitive and mineral shadows alone can sometimes be very irritating and case a severe case of eczema in which I can not wear eye shadow for a week or two after the one glorious night. I combat this by using cream shadows as a base or balms as primers. 100% Pure’s Satin Cream Eye Shadow in Tahiti is a super pretty neutral base colour that is working well for me so far.
Now that I have tried cream blushes I rarely use the powdered form. My skin appreciates the extra hydration, and I find that they are just so much more natural looking when blended well. That being said, the Pot Rouge Blush from 100% Pure in Ballerina is far from a natural looking blush but not because of the pigment.
I really do like mineral shadows, but they seem to dry out my eye lids and cause my eczema to act up. Thankfully I have Sea Buckthorn’s skin salve to help with this, but I’d rather prevent the issue than play catch up. This little product does just that.
Ah the never ending quest for that holy grail of natural mascaras… I’ve tried a few, and although none have exclusive ‘holy grail’ status, they all have something great about them. Here’s what I think:
I have just been using blends of eye shadows for when I do my eyebrows up to this point, so when this little beauty arrived in my True Beauty Box I was excited to try it out!
