Get this!: Rejuva Baked Mineral Foundation has the swirls and sheen reminiscent of MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish but contains only the following ingredients:
Mica, Sericite Mica, Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) seed oil, Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius) seed oil, Lavandula Angustifolia flower extract, Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris) extract, Green Tea (Camelia Sinensis) extract, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate), Rosemary Leaf (Rosemarinus Officinalis) extract, Magnolia Bark (Magnolia Officinalis) extract, Iron Oxides
(Bonus: no micronized or “nano-sized” minerals were used to make this baked-in-Italy mineral powder- double plus in my book.)
Want that: The Nars Multiples are calling your name but you’ve sworn off complicated ingredients that could suffocate your pores.
Get this!: Vapour Beauty offers an entire line of stick-form mineral makeup made with certified organic ingredients, natural pigments and skin-nourishing botanical oils. Their Solar Translucent Bronzer easily rivals Nars Multiples in Waikiki and South Beach. I also love their Stratus Instant Skin Perfector when I want to achieve a velvety smooth finish without using conventional primers (this smooths over fine lines around my eyes!). And with ingredient lists so clean, they won’t clog pores like regular cream or stick makeup products do.
Want that: You want to try Latisse for fuller, longer lashes but could do without the prescription substance and prostaglandin. It runs the risk of darkened skin around eyes and changing of eye color- No, thank you!
Get this!: Lashem is an alternative lash growth treatment that utilizes patented Lipo Oligo-peptide, Pro-Vitamin B-5 and Biotin to promote 40% longer lashes in 2 weeks without the use of prostagladin. The formula is boosted with a blend of botanical extracts with NO harsh preservatives like parabens and methylchloroisothiazalinone. I like to use this on both my lashline (to combat daily damages from mascara use) and brows (for, well, brows!).
Here’s my disclaimer: I write extremely researched reviews after extensive, self-conducted testing. I do not review products I dislike; it's a waste of time and typing skills. This review contains products sent by company due to interest in feedbacks. My first priority is to my readers; company gratis does not guarantee placement. Affiliate and non-affiliate links are provided to inform readers of where to purchase products.
