Natural Make Up | Honest Review and First Impressions

Wednesday, 19 April 2017
For todays post I have a natural finishing powder and mascara to talk about. I've been using both of these products for two weeks now, so I've given them a fair go and will always be honest when reviewing products. 

I'll start with the positives of course, and the main one for me is the minimal and natural ingredient list of this product. Secondly, this definitely kept my skin matte and shine free all day which was really impressive. It also didn't cling too much to any dry areas, although I found if I put too much on it did look slightly cakey. 

I was slightly disappointed with the colour of this product. It claims to be translucent but in reality it's more suitable for light to medium skin tones, not really pale like myself. I can just about get away with it if I use another lighter powder and mix the two together.

Another issue is I've been using this for only two weeks and I've already hit pan. I only wear make up 3 or 4 times a week, so I'm not even using it everyday. At £22.50 I would expect it to last a lot longer and to have not hit pan already, which is disappointing. 

Overall I liked this powder but I wasn't blown away by it and expected more if I'm being honest. 

Again I've been using this mascara for two weeks after my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara finally was too dry to deal with. The natural and organic ingredients originally drew me to this product and I also love the sleek packaging. At £15.95 it's quite expensive and is similar to high end make up prices. 

I found that it did lengthen my lashes as the title suggests and it stays on all day without smudging or flaking. I normally put on two coats as anything more will make my lashes look spidery and clumpy, but that's the case with most mascaras. 

As I mentioned earlier, this has been open for 2 weeks and I've noticed that it's already starting to become quite thick and potentially drying out. I think the packaging says that it can be open for 9 months, but I honestly can't see it lasting that long. It's quite an expensive mascara so I would expect it to not be drying out already, but maybe that's down to the natural ingredients. 

Let me know if you've tried any of these out and what you think!
