Warning: your product wishlist may suddenly grow within the next 2 minutes.
I am very excited to share with you some of the newest green beauty launches, which include a few of my favorite brands and others I have been wanting to try for a while. It is mostly makeup, so my fellow makeup enthusiasts…get ready to take notes!
1- Alima Pure Natural Definition Mascara: Available in Black or Brown, Alima’s mascara is a defining mascara that contains Panthenol, natural oils, and waxes to condition the lashes. It promises to be flake-free, and to protect and strengthen the lashes while coating them. This will probably be my first Alima purchase. I really do not need a new mascara, but I read a few reviews of this one and people seem to be very pleased with it. I must see what the fuss is about.
2- Juice Beauty Lash Defining Mascara: Made with minerals, organic cocoa, avocado butter to soften the lashes, vitamin E to protect them, and vegetable glycerin to separate them. The other day, Juice Beauty tweeted that this mascara provides “a glossy definition that makes the lashes look longer and fuller”. Longer and fuller are the exact two words that I would love to associate with my lashes.
3- Ilia Beauty (New) Mascara: Perhaps, the one I am the most curious about. Ilia Beauty has completely reformulated their mascaras and removed Phenoxyethanol (a questionable preservative) from their ingredients. I was very glad to learn that! They also changed the brush and it looks quite interesting (in a good way!). I am very pleased that they kept the four shades that they previously had, including the brown one. (I know some people like to use brown, and more toned-down, natural-looking mascaras.)
4 & 5- Ilia Beauty Lipstick in Perfect Day and Tinted Lip Conditioner in Lust For Life: I am particularly intrigued by Perfect day, a warm coral red. I already own several Ilia Beauty lipsticks and one of my favorites is a the dark red–Femme Fatale. If the texture is the same, this is probably going to become my new HG red lipstick. Lust for Life is a dark berry stain and I am very curious to see how it compares to Arabian Knights and Femme Fatale. The tinted lip conditioners can be applied sheer, and they have a beautiful glossy finish.
6- RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer: Possibly my next purchase. A sheer, glowing but not sparkly bronzer without orange, pink nor gray tones, that gives just a healthy, sun-kissed glow. I love cream bronzers (my two favorites are Kjaer Weis in Desired Glow and Ilia Beauty in Sway), and this one looks so different from both of them. Which means I have a good reason to buy a new cream bronzer.
7- Kahina Giving Beauty Fez Body Serum: You know I love a good body serum. (Remember the Lina Hanson Global Body Serum? Still love it!) This serum has a very captivating description and is inspired to the sacred imperial city of Fez in Morocco. When I think of Morocco I think of exotic, warm scents that are a true pleasure to massage on my body after a shower. Also, with the weather changes of the past few weeks my skin has been getting really dry and a nourishing body serum would perfectly fit my skin’s needs.
See anything interesting? Have you already tried any of these new products? Leave me a comment and let me know if there is any other new product I should know about! I will make sure to update you with my thoughts about them once I try them, and stay tuned for more exciting launches coming soon, including a Kjaer Weis foundation… (Christmas cannot come soon enough this year!)
