Have you ever thought that when you put on your makeup to make yourself look nice for the day ahead, you might be causing yourself irreparable damage? Many cosmetic companies today use thousands of synthetic chemicals in their products. Many of these substances are used to clean industrial equipment, stabilize pesticides and grease gears. So I think you’ll agree with me when I say that something you use to clean your garage floor is probably not the best thing to be using as a facial cleanser. They even allow chemicals that are linked to cancer, infertility, or birth defects to be used in their personal care products. You might even see products on the shelves that have bold writing saying ALL NATURAL, but contain ingredient’s that are not natural in fact you can’t even pronounce the names.
The makeup I use is safe to eat and contains no chemicals. Here is a list of what I use and a little bit about each product.
Miessence translucent foundation (honey)
I used three pumps of foundation on my face and found that was way too much. N
time I think I’ll use one pump and see how far that gets me. I absolutely loved the colour it was a very natural health looking colour, I have quite fair skin and I think I would use this one more in summer time. It was easy to apply to clean moisturised skin and blended well. I applied in the morning and went to a festival and didn’t have to touch up my makeup all day, it was about 20 degrees Celsius and sunny my face didn’t feel clogged up with make up in fact I didn’t even notice I was wearing any.
This is a good concealer you don’t have to use much I only dabbed a bit under my eyes around my nose and on a few blemishes. It blended well and covered up my blemishes it made my skin look flawless. My mother in law also uses this concealer she uses it every day to cover up the darkness under her eyes and says that’s all she puts on in the morning because it blends in so well.
Miessence mineral foundation powder (medium)
This foundation powder comes in a great little pot so you don’t get to much powder on your brush therefore you get very little wastage. This mineral foundation can be put straight on top of your moisturizer or translucent foundation and gives you a nice even skin tone. It doesn’t feel heavy on your face so you can wear it on really hot days. It is also delicately scented with pure organic rose essential oil.
Miessence shimmer crème (berry)
Now this is a very unique product I used this product as a blush and a lip colour.. It’s a long lasting colour not all day but about 5 hours. When I used this as a blusher I was a little bit worried because it looks a bit dark but when I put a little bit on my cheek bones it actually is a really good colour and blends into foundation with no effort.
Miessence pure black mascara
This mascara is everything I expect in mascara it doesn’t clog up your eyelashes gives a nice even coverage. The brush is nice and stiff so it’s easy to use and the bristles help to separate your eye lashes giving a beautiful natural look. Lash friendly ingredients like nourishing aloe vera leaf juice, thickening and strengthening carnauba wax, shine-enhancing castor bean oil, and mineral earth pigments deliver long-lasting, intense colour.
Miessence Jaffa lip balm
Absolutely love this product. It smells like citrus and makes your lips feel so soft. It’s in a convenient wind up container and I take it everywhere with me. It’s a great size the brightly coloured to make it easy to find in a messy woman’s hand bag. Nutritious shea butter, avocado and sunflower oils soften and smooth rough, chapped lips, while organic orange and vanilla taste deeeelicious!
