All the Makeup I have

januar 08, 2019

After posting my skincare faves/new discoveries from last year (see here) I got a request to share my other favourites as well. Since I just recently sorted out my makeup products I decided to just share everything I have, including some miscellaneous pieces I store in the same boxes as my makeup. I'm actually very proud of my current makeup collection since it's not that big, especially for a beauty blogger. I have a lot of my favourite products that I use regularly and some that I don't use that often but like I said in my previous post, a girl needs options! I don't want to go through every single makeup item so if you're interested in one I haven't mentioned, let me know.

Natural Organic Makeup Foundation, Concealer, Powder, Ere Perez, Sappho New Paradigm, W3LL People, Hiro, RMS Beauty
Starting with foundation and concealer. My go-to "foundation" in 2018 was Sappho New Paradigm CC Cream*. I have the shade Light and I received this beautiful foundation in a Beauty Heroes Limited Edition Makeup Discovery (my review with swatches here). I love this CC cream so much! It gives light to medium coverage, it's quite long lasting, the shade matches me perfectly. I really like it. If I'm not mistaken it contains coconut oil, so be careful if you're prone to breakouts using products with coconut oil. I got Sappho CC Cream at Beauty Heroes, where member save 15% (get it here). The Sappho Discovery is still available, for $39 and you can get it here. In Europe Sappho products are available at Naturisimo and Glow Organic.

I have a love hate relationship with Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation*. Well it's not really a love hate relationship, it's more "I like/dislike it". I can't rely on it so I only use it at some occasions when I don't mind if my foundation doesn't last that long. Other than that it feels great on the skin, it's lightweight and not greasy, and has a light coverage. I find that the bottle needs to be shaken before use and that is best to apply it with fingers. I terribly want it to work for me so I'm still keeping it and trying to love it. Do you have it? Have any tips for me? I have the shade Haze and I got it at Love Lula.

My favourite concealer is the famous and well loved "un" cover-up* from RMS Beauty (review here). I have the shade 11 and it matches me perfectly. This concealer lasts for absolute ages, it's quite pigmented, great to use under my eyes and on blemishes. Will definitely repurchase. You can get the "un" cover-up here. The other concealer I use for under my eyes is Concealer* from Sappho New Paradigm (my review with swatches here). I have the shade Light and this colour is super light and therefore on my skin only suitable to use under my eyes. It brightens up the area really well and covers it quite well. It's not a full coverage concealer which I like because I'm all about that natural makeup look. The same as Sappho CC Cream, I received this concealer in a Beauty Heroes box which is still available (see here). You can get Sappho Concealer here. Oh and the Hiro Out of Space Balm Conceal & Transform* concealer is great too but I have to use it more to really make up my mind about it. I have the shade #04 Nala and it's a good match for me. I got it here.

The powder I've been using and loving is the "un" powder* by RMS Beauty. It contains only two ingredients: Silica and Mica, and it does what you'd expect from a good powder - it minimizes shine and mattifies. It depends on the time of year but I always love to use it under my eyes and on the parts of my face where I used concealer. So for example, I spot conceal with concealer and then apply some powder on top and then if I need to, I apply more concealer and always finish with powder. That way the coverage lasts longer. I like this product very much and based on my sparing application I will have it for years haha. You can get the "un" powder here.
Natural Organic Makeup Bronzer, Blush, Highlighter, Au Naturale, Ere Perez, Maya Chia, Gressa, Lily Lolo, Modern Minerals
One of new discoveries from last year that I fell in love with is The Highlight of the Day* by Maya Chia. I have the shade Golden Hour and this highlighter is so beautiful! Instead of using it on top of my foundation I rather use it as a primer. I apply it on the tops of my cheeks and all the usual places where you'd put a highlighter, and then I go straight in with foundation (which I also apply with fingers). That gives such a beautiful, understated glow to the skin, that looks natural but also oh so beautiful. You know sometimes I feel like I have too much makeup on my face so tricks like this are all that I wish for. I want my makeup to look good but I don't want to look like I'm wearing a lot (even tho I probably am haha). I got this sparkling beauty in Sarah's LEVEL UP Discovery by Beauty Heroes. It comes with The Highlight of the Day of choice (you can pick from 4 different shades) and Supercritical Omega-3 Chia Face Oil which is lovely (check it out here). If you don't feel like getting the oil then you can get the highlighter here. The other highlighter I love is Modern Moonstone Cream Highlighter* by Modern Minerals (review with swatches here). Perfect everyday highlighter, not too shimmery but still very much out there. You can get it here.

Ere Perez Rice Powder Bronzer in Tulum* (review with swatches here) is one of my fave makeup products I discovered last year. It's so amazing and I absolutely love wearing it. It contains some teeny tiny shimmering particles but nothing glittery or sparkly. I think it has just the right amount of something something that makes my skin looking very nice. It gives it that dimension without the look of super matte skin. It's stunning and I love it so much. You can get Ere Perez Bronzer in Tulum here. The other fave which I haven't been reaching for that much last year is Lily Lolo Pressed Bronzer in Miami Beach. This bronzer is matte and it was my absolute fave before the Ere Perez bronzer (I used two of this bronzer already). I still really like it but I tend to reach more for Tulum because it's warmer. I got Lily Lolo bronzer here but you can also find it in a number of places, including Lily Lolo's website here.

I was completely and utterly in love with Au Naturale Powder Blush in Pink Champagne* for the longest time but then I tried Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pots* (review with swatches here) and now I can't imagine living without these absolutely stunning blushes. Sometimes I love powder blushes and sometimes cream. For the last few months I've been all about cream blushes, the shade Harmony in particular (even though the red shade Happy is so beautiful too). Easy to use, very blendable, they last really well and they just look great on the skin. Harmony is the absolute winner in this category! You can get it here.
Natural Organic Makeup Lipstick, Lip Gloss, Lip Balm, Fitglow, Modern Minerals, Axiology, RMS Beauty, H is for Love, Kari Gran
Lip products from left to right. First we have two Lip Colour Serums by Fitglow Beauty - Gospel* and Nudie* (Nudie is in the Limited Edition Colour Discovery Day - see here). These lip glosses are very popular and with good reason. They are super moisturizing, creamy and they're also nicely pigmented. Really very beautiful. You can get them here. The other fave lip glosses of mine are from Modern Minerals - L'Amour* (which is actually pink in real life but sadly the colour looks completely different on the photo; available in Mercedes' LEVEL UP Discovery) and Garnet*. L'Amour is infused with Lotus Wei essence and has a beautiful floral scent and Garnet smells like mint. They have good pigmentation and feel more like lip gloss than Fitglow serums, with the exception that they are not sticky. Which I greatly appreciate. These feel great on the lips and I really love wearing them. Would definitely love to have more shades. Next is Axiology Lip Crayon in the shade Serene* (swatch here), which is this brownish lip colour that again, feels great on the lips. I feel like the colour isn't that flattering on me as is for example a brighter colour but I still like to wear it occasionally simply because I love the packaging and cause it just feels so nice - not drying but also not like it would slip of my lips. The red lipstick is from RMS Beauty and the shade is called Red*. I love this colour so much but since it's a proper red I don't wear it as often as I should. It's super pigmented (and carmine free), non drying, matte and it lasts well. The two other extremely comfortable lip products are Kari Gran Lip Whip in Jeannie* and H is for Love Lip Glacé in Root & Berry*. I love both so much! They're very moisturizing, like lip balms but they also give this beautiful shine and colour to them lips. I love the no-fuss aspect of them and I never have to think if they still look alright on my lips after a while which I can't say for a bold, pigmented lipstick. I really love these two.
Natural Organic Makeup Mascara Eyebrow Powder, Plume Science, Sappho New Paradigm, Inika, Lily Lolo
I discovered a new product for my eyebrows and I really love it. It's the Nourish & Define Pomade* by Plume Science. I have the shade Ashy Daybreak. I find that cream products like this give a bit more natural look to the brows and they also last longer than powder. I easily wear it a whole day and it still looks good in the evening. Thumbs up! You can get Plume Nourish & Define Pomade here.

I try not to have too many mascaras open at the same time and I usually only have one, but at this moment I have three. Sappho New Paradigm Vegan Mascara* is nothing special and I would definitely not repurchase it. Inika Long Lash Mascara* was the mascara I fell in love with last year but then I got the second tube of it and it just didn't work as it did before. It was very underwhelming, especially in comparison to the first tube, so I probably won't repurchase. Not sure if they changed their formulation or what, but I'm like boy bye. At the moment I'm really enjoying the newest Lily Lolo mascara called Big Lash Mascara. I have to say that I was not expecting the wand to be so extra but I quickly got used to it. It is easier to be more precise with mascara that has a smaller wand but since the end result looks good, I don't mind it at all. I haven't been using Big Lash Mascara for long but I'm already considering repurchasing it in the future. You can get it here or straight from Lily Lolo's official website here.
Natural, Organic Makeup Single Eyeshadow, Eye Pencil, Gressa, RMS Beauty, Au Naturale
Gressa Eye Tint in Áureo* is one of my fave single eyeshadows ever. It's sparkly and gold, it's long lasting, doesn't crease, it's great. See how it looks on me here. These RMS Beauty Swift Shadows* are great too but I don't really wear them that often (I should!). The upper colour is Garden Rose GR-13*, brown shade with red undertone, very beautiful for green and blue eyes, and Enchanted Moonlight EM-61*, a greyish purple.
Natural Organic Makeup Eyeshadow Palette Aether, Fitglow, Nude and Noir
As eyeshadow palettes go I love, love, love the Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette* (swatches here). It's so very beautiful! The shades are stunning, pigmented, long lasting, buttery, they blend easily and I'm just so in love. I really appreciate that the palette is made to be more sustainable and easy to recycle - there's no mirror or magnets and when you remove the elastic band and eyeshadow pans, it's completely recyclable. You can get it here (code "Jana" saves you 10% - not affiliated). Fitglow Beauty Day Palette* is new in my collection. It's very neutral, perfect for daytime but so far I only used it once. Nude & Noir Multi-Use Face Palette in Bijou* is not something I would really recommend, because the shades crease and they're not long lasting. Such a shame because I love the colours.
Hurraw, Pacific Northwest Essences, Earthwise Beauty, Oneself
In the same two boxes that I have my makeup (I'm reusing Boxwalla's beauty boxes) I also store some random items like lip balms, perfumes and flower essences. I don't wear perfume often because I have a few very beautifully scented body oils and I just use those, but when I do apply it, I go for Oneself Organic Perfume Oil Hawaiian Flower Lei*. It's sweet, floral, tropical, very beautiful. I have more lip balms that are on the photo, especially Hurraw lip balms. My fave from them is their Moon Night Treatment*. I also have to mention Thelma Lip Treatment* by Earthwise Beauty, a moisturizing lip balm that is healing and repairing but also feels lightweight on the lips, and I really like that it doesn't look shiny. Lately I've been really into my Sun Infusion Essence Blend* from Pacific Northwest Essences (which is a company founded by Ava Zhan, the founder of Earthwise Beauty). Sun Infusion is said to help with winter blues, depression, stuff like that. You take in internally, a few drops 3-4 times a day. I feel much more content this winter, I kinda appreciate the cold weather more and I'm not that annoyed with it as I usually am.

Modern Minerals, Fitglow, Lily Lolo, Hynt Beauty, Ere Perez, Phb Ethical
Modern Minerals, Fitglow, Lily Lolo, Hynt Beauty, Ere Perez, Phb Ethical
In the same drawer I also have some other makeup bits that I don't wear that often, like for example Modern Minerals loose eyeshadows - Surya* and Hopeful*. The later was created in collaboration with Danielle (@crueltyfreeveganbeauty). The 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Butter is this moisturizing and super pigmented lip balm that I love to wear because it feels like a lip balm but it gives a great colour payout at the same time. Other lip products are: Hynt Beauty Aria Pure Lipstick in the shade Passion Plum* and Hynt Beauty Libre Lipgloss in Liquid Garnet*. On the left of the photo is Ere Perez Lipstick in Birthday* and next to it is Fitglow Beauty Lip Colour Cream in Beet*.

I may do a "get ready with me" on Instagram with my everyday makeup faves so if you'd like to see that, hit me up.

Much love to you all,

Jana xx
