Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a bit of information and a review of two premium makeup products from BeautyCounter. I was thrilled to dive in and learn more about a company that prides itself on “Safer Skincare” and products that are developed with a rigorous ingredient selection process. They have banned over 1,500 ingredients and harmful chemicals that have been deemed unsafe and they’re constantly doing research and updating their protocol to manufacture the highest quality products. Also, over 80% of the ingredients are organic, natural or plant-derived. I love that they are sourcing as naturally as possible. Their mission is to get safer beauty products in the hands of everyone, and you can use their products confidently knowing you are safe in their hands! BeautyCounter offers cosmetics, skincare, sun care, and even baby products. I’ll be reviewing the Lip Sheer in the color Scarlet and the Lengthening Mascara.
After my son was born, I started to become more and more aware about harmful chemicals and toxins in everyday products that we use on our skin, hair, and even what we eat. I was extremely particular about what products I used for him (he has very sensitive skin and issues with excema), and as time went on I started filtering through my everyday products and tossing what didn’t make the “safety” cut for fear it may harm him. After pregnancy, even my skin became more sensitive and my face is certainly an area that is prone to issues from the wrong kind of products. It’s definitely something to think about if you have any question about the quality of your everyday products and the protection of your skin.
I was extremely impressed with the Lip Sheer. In fact, I’ve been wearing it everywhere I go. It’s a beautiful everyday shade of red with a slight sheen. It’s not too bright, and since the formula is so creamy and smooth, it leaves your lips feeling very hydrated. There is also a slight hint of vanilla fragrance. (You’ll pretty much be licking your lips all day, but no need to worry! The color is very long lasting!) The Lip Sheer is available in ten fabulous colors. I’ve got my eyes on Currant for Fall! You can shop the lip sheer here.
Coco does have a valid point! Words of wisdom here, people!
Next, I tried the Lengthening Mascara. I really like the way the wand grips your lashes and the formula (infused with shea butter and organic oils) conditions as your wear it. I used two coats and then used the tip of the wand on the ends of my outer lashes for extra volume. I tend to go a bit heavy on the mascara, but this is a really nice change of pace for me to experiment with a more natural look. I will say, I felt like extended my lashes, separated them well, and they were seemingly longer than normal. I used with and without primer throughout the two weeks I’ve been testing the products with my everyday routine. With primer, I felt it gave me more of the volume that I’m used to with my previous go-to mascara. Without the primer, it was a more natural look.
