Natural Makeup Wish List

This post was last updated on January 28th, 2019

I recently watched the documentary “The Human Experiment” and was quite shocked at the toxins that are found in a lot of products that we use on a daily basis. Some things are, of course, more difficult to change, such as furniture (most of us can’t really afford to buy all new furniture just because we saw a documentary that scared us). With other things, however, it’s a lot easier, one such thing being makeup. It’s a matter of fact that we don’t actually need makeup so why don’t we try to lower the number of products we buy and make sure that we invest more in our health? That’s why it’s my new mission to try and buy only toxin-free makeup from now on. There are quite a few brands who make so-called “natural” makeup, and there are several products that look fairly interesting. Of course, they also have to be vegan and cruelty-free which makes the list a bit smaller, but I prefer that, as it gives me a better overview.

​Young Blood – Ultimate Concealer

​I need a good concealer for my under-eye area and, from what I’ve read, this could be a fairly decent product. I generally find it very difficult to find a good concealer so I’d be more than happy to see this work.

​RMS Beauty – Un Powder

My skin is more combination and gets fairly dehydrated in the summer, but in the summer, especially here in Greece, I do get very shiny so powder is a must. RMS Beauty is one of the stars in toxin-free makeup, and this powder is supposed to be really good.

​​Au Naturale – Anywhere Creme Blush Stick in Adrenaline

​I’ve never been a big fan of blush, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve started to realize the difference it makes. Cream products are always a nice idea because they blend it perfectly with the foundation.

​Young Blood – Lip Liner Pencil in Truly Red and Rose

​Another Young Blood product. A lot of the products in their range seem very interesting, such as their lip pencils. I have come to prefer lip pencils over lipstick for two main reasons:
1. They have a matte finish, and I’m not a fan of that shiny lip look.
2. They are a lot more long-lasting than most lipsticks.
​Tying in with my attempts at a more minimalist lifestyle I have to ask myself why I should get lipstick and lip liner when one can easily do the job of both.

​Inika – Certified Organic Light Reflect Cream

​This is described as a highlighter, and, as mentioned above, I prefer all face products to be in cream form as they just blend in so much more seamlessly with the foundation underneath.

​Ilia – Mascara in Nightfall

​Mascara is a tricky product. It doesn’t really last long enough (max. six months) to justify spending a lot of money on, but, on the other hand, there’s a lot of bad mascara out there. The best mascara I’ve ever used was a sample I got of the Estee Lauder Double-Wear Mascara. Since then I’ve been struggling to find something as good but cheaper. Maybe this Ilia mascara will be the one?

​Adorn – Oil Free Liquid Mineral Foundation

Mineral products have become all the rage in recent years, and I’d really like to see how a liquid mineral foundation would perform.
