Well, I am SO glad that the folks at W3LL PEOPLE contacted me once again, because they have added some new products and made their existing products better. I was sent a lovely blox of products and have had a chance to try more of the products out.
I will review some of them today, the others in the coming weeks.
Here are my thoughts:
Narcissist Foundation & Concealer ($38) -- I liked this product back in 2009 and I *love* this product now. I compared it back then to the old Estee Lauder Minute Makeup minus the horrible chemicals and I stand by that. Actually, it reminds me of what would happen if you were to combine Estee Lauder Minute Makeup with Vapour Organic Beauty's Illusionist Concealer stick. This is like a hybrid of those two products.
When I tried it before, the color was all wrong. This time, I tried the shade called Narcissist 2, which is perfect for me. I normally wear the CC cream/tinted moisturizer from Jane Iredale, so I used this to spot treat the red areas on my nose and as a dark circle concealer. It is perfect for both uses. It doesn't cake, crease, melt off, etc. I even use this as an eye makeup base for my Urban Decay Naked Palette.
The ingredients are absolutely fabulous, too:
Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Ultramarine Blue, Mica, Kaolin Clay, Serecite, Silica, Organic Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe)*, Matricaria recutita (Chamomile)**, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*
*USDA Organic, **QAI
HEDONIST LUMINOUS MINERAL BRONZER ($23) -- The second product I am reviewing today is the powder bronzer. My shade is #52 (Medium). I have mentioned being pleased with my facial bronzers, as I like Silk Naturals Tahiti Sweetie, 100% Pure, and Organic Wear. This one is, frankly, far superior. It is more expensive, but it excels in all categories--from blendability to ingredients to how natural the color looks.
What I love most is that the term "luminous" is, indeed, appropriate for once! Half the time "luminous" ends of meaning that I end of looking like a glittery disco ball. Not with this bronzer! It really is just a naturally radiant, subtle glow of a tan!
Again, the ingredients is W3LL PEOPLE really are superior to almost every other "natural" brand of makeup. These are TRULY natural!
Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide. May contain Ultramarine Blue, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Organic Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe)*, Matricaria recutita (Chamomile)**, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea)*
*USDA Organic, **QAI
Grade: A+ for this one, too!
The Chic & Green Bottom Line:
W3LL PEOPLE is a really stellar cosmetics company with lovely modern packaging (they are also an eco-friendly company), GREAT ingredients, and they're also cruelty-free. I can highly recommend these products.
