Organic and Natural Make Up | First Impressions

Monday, 11 July 2016

The lovely people at Avril Cosmetics  messaged me asking if I wanted to try some of their products out! I of course said yes and was lucky enough to actually choose which products I wanted to try out. All of the ones I chose are vegan, and of course they are a cruelty-free company. Their products are made from certified organic ingredients and do not contain any parabens or other nasties. They have a list of all of their vegan products on their website if you're interested! 

Single eyeshadow in the shade Marécage and Terre. 

Eyeshadow palette - Nude

These eyeshadows are honestly some of the most soft, smooth, buttery and pigmented shadows I have ever used. I was really surprised at just how beautifully they looked; both when swatched and on the eye. I think the swatches speak for themselves! They also blended really well and didn't crease throughout the day. 

Concealer in the shade Ivorie and Foundation in the shade Clair

I really liked the concealer and it's very comparable to my NYX one (my favourite concealer ever). The shade was perfect for me and I found it really brightened my under eye area. It also didn't really crease and blended in really well using a damp beauty sponge. 

I had a bit of an issue with the foundation. The shade is slightly too pink for my skin tone but I found that easy to get around by mixing it with another foundation. The main issue was that it just didn't work being applied with a damp sponge. I found it separated a lot and just wouldn't blend in properly. BUT, I then tried blending it in with a foundation brush and this worked so much better. If you do try this then I would recommend really buffing it in to get an even coverage. I know not all foundations work with sponges, but it definitely worked with a brush. With that aside, it lasted all day without fading or looking oily which I was impressed with. It also didn't cake and actually looked quite natural once applied properly!
