Omiana Vegan Primer Review

I’ll be the first to admit that I really don’t have a ton of experience with makeup primers. In fact, the only one I’ve ever used is the bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer. But, in our journey to choose healthy makeup products without harmful ingredients, it was time to find something new! My eyelids are far too creased to get away without using a primer!

First I tried Beautycounter’s CONCEALER PEN, which worked fine as a concealer, but not as a primer. So, on to the next thing! I’ve loved all Continue reading

Beautycounter Touchup Skin Concealer Pen Review

Concealer is a girl’s best friend sometimes, isn’t it? This pen is the TOUCHUP SKIN CONCEALER PEN by Beautycounter. You can read our full review of the company HERE.

The main reason that I purchased this pen was actually two-fold: concealer + eye shadow primer. My eye shadow primer was one of my unhealthy makeup products that I had not yet replaced because I hadn’t found a worthy replacement. I have some serious creases in my eyelids, so Continue reading

Beautycounter Review

Beautycounter is a relatively new company that focuses on makeup, beauty, skin care, etc., whose goal is to offer products without yucky chemicals. You can check out their “NEVER LIST” to see everything that they do not use!

From checking out the link, you can see it is quite a LONG list. Yay! A company that actually cares about what’s in their beauty products!

So, of course, I wanted to give their products a try because we’re all about investing in healthy, quality makeup. This review is based on the company as a whole; specific product reviews will be coming separately!

Unfortunately, it is a bit of a mixed review, but I am hopeful that the “negatives” are things Continue reading

Omiana Strong-Hold Mascara Review

We are HUGE fans of Omiana’s makeup line, and their BLACK STRONG-HOLD MASCARA is no exception! This mascara is free of titanium dioxide, mica, parabens, and more.

A major requirement for me in any mascara is that it STAYS PUT! I have short eyelashes, so mascara is an important part of the “look” I want to achieve when I’m wearing makeup. I’ve worn this mascara regularly, and have been so pleased with it.

The mascara is very dark black, which I love, and applies easily because it has such a high-quality brush. It also does a great job of holding curl and LASTING throughout the day!

Sometimes “healthy” makeup gets a bad reputation because people think that it won’t perform and I have found that to be true myself with some other brands. But this mascara is NOT one of those products. It works just as well, if not better, than the “junk-filled” brands that I used to use!

Omiana Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Trio Review – Brown

For as long as I can remember, I have always LOVED makeup. When I was little, I just couldn’t wait until I was old enough to start wearing it myself! And when that time came, the real fun began! Not much has changed since then, either. I love it just as much now!

After I’d been wearing makeup for several years, I eventually started switching over to what I considered “nicer” brands, which I thought meant better quality – Makeup Forver, MAC, bareMinerals, etc. In fact, I swore by bareMinerals foundation until a few months ago when Mom and I started learning about what’s really in makeup.

Hint: it’s a lot of stuff that’s really not very good for you! For example, a lot of the bareMinerals eyeshadows contain ferric ammonium ferrocyanide (possible organ system toxicity – low concern) and aluminum powder (potential neurotoxin, possible organ toxicity).  I wanted to find a healthier option! Surely not all makeup is made with these things???

Good news –  there is! We’ve found Continue reading

Honeybee Gardens Eyeshadow Review

I have been trying to swap my makeup for healthier options and have found Honeybee Gardens’ pressed eyeshadow to be a really great replacement! They are available individually or they do sell them in palettes of four. The picture above is a palette that I just put together myself!

I used to wear mainly Urban Decay and Tarte shadows and since discovered they contain talc and PTFE. Both of these ingredients are potential carcinogens, therefore I’m so glad to find healthy versions of makeup that actually WORK! As far as wearability, I feel Honeybee’s wear just Continue reading

Omiana Foundation Review

This is a review for OMIANA’S CREAMY MATTE INTENSE COVERAGE FOUNDATION! I explained my decision to switch makeup in our earlier post “What’s In Your Foudnation?”

I’ve intentionally waited a few weeks to post this review to ensure I had ample time to use and really experience the product. For me, foundations will initially work, but after some time goes by, I often have breakouts. I’m happy to say that has not been the case with this foundation!

I absolutely LOVE this foundation! The coverage is extremely good and its creamy consistency is not greasy. It is definitely one of the best-covering foundations I have used. My daughter tried it as well, and was EXTREMELY impressed by the coverage.

Not to sound cliche, but a small amount truly does go a long way. Creamy matte intense coverage foundation is the perfect name! This container is quite large and looks as though it will last for months and months. Continue reading

What’s in Your Foundation?

I’ve always thought that a sunscreen in your foundation was a good thing. Titanium dioxide is often the ingredient used to infuse an SPF into makeup. I’ve worn bareminerals for years thinking that it was “good” for my skin with the added benefit of containing an SPF.

I started investigating the overall safety of cosmetics, and learned that my loose powder foundation had Continue reading
