Natural Makeup Products

Why not replace products that you use every day with products that are not only safe, but also have multiple benefits for your skin? These natural makeup products are formulated without the usual chemicals and toxins that are found in most makeup. Instead these natural products are packed full of ingredients that work together to nourish and protect your skin. Here are a few of my favourite natural products – which I love to store in my cute makeup bag from True Leaf Collection.

Powders

Pacifica Eyeshadow Palette 

  • Purchased from Dad’s Organic Market or here
  • Infused with coconut water
  • Long-wearing
  • Gluten & Cruelty-free

This eyeshadow is velvety-soft and creamy. With a primer the shadows remain pigmented and beautiful all day long. The “Skinny Dip” shadow is my favourite as I use it in the corners of my eyes and as a highlight on my cheekbones.

Sweet Leliani Cosmetics Eyeshadow 

This eyeshadow is even more pigmented than the palette mentioned above. This shadow is shimmery, soft and goes on like a dream. This eyeshadow is infused with green tea, grape seed oil and rose hip oil. I really like that this product has minimal plastic and a focus is made on more eco-friendly packaging.

Elate Clean Cosmetics Powders

  • Purchased from Green Tree Beauty 
  • Made with all natural mineral pigments
  • Made in Canada
  • Products are packaged in seed paper
  • Elate provides a reusable bamboo powder compact which helps to eliminate waste

The pressed powder blush is so pigmented that I only need a quick tap of my brush on  the powder to get enough colour on my cheeks. I know this compact will last me a very long time. I use a darker shade in the pressed powder foundation as a bronzer for contouring. I really love how these products are packaged in seed paper – I put the product packaging in soil and now I have a little herb garden growing!

Sweet Leilani Cosmetics Mineral Powder

  • Purchased from Green Tree Beauty 
  • Paraben, gluten, cruelty and fragrance-free
  • 100% vegan
  • Contains anti-inflammatory and calming properties

I have the Hawaiian Highlight Mineral Powder in “sky” and I use this as a foundation. It is very lightweight, however it has great coverage. I have been through 8 different natural powder foundations and this is the only one that plays nice with my oily t-zone and dry cheeks. This product has reflective minerals and looks incredible on and off camera (it is the product I am wearing on my skin in my previous 3 blog posts). This product is amazing for people with sensitive skin and it has never made me break out.

Lipsticks

Axiology Natural Lipsticks 

  • Purchased from Green Tree Beauty
  • Made with organic ingredients
  • Cruelty-free and vegan
  • Sustainably made packaging

I have the shades “The Goodness” and “Infinite”. These are unique shades with a bit of shimmer & they go on very smooth. They definitely need reapplication throughout the day – however I would rather reapply a product that I know I can safely eat, rather than slather toxins and chemicals on my lips, which ultimately ends up in my body.

Sweet Leilani Lipstick

  • Purchased from Green Tree Beauty 
  • Made in Canada
  • Paraben, lead, gluten, fragrance and cruelty-free
  • the sales of these products help to support cancer & trauma patients

This was the lipstick I was wearing in my Lust for Life post. This shade has an incredible retro vibe to it that I cannot get enough of. It also has better staying power than the lipsticks mentioned above. This lipstick smells incredible because it is formulated with peppermint oil, green tea, rose hip oil and grape seed oil. It also contains a chemical-free sunscreen!

Bite Beauty Lipstick

  • Purchased from Sephora
  • Lipsticks contain nutrients, vitamins and omega oils
  • Paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free

These lipsticks are very smooth and pigmented. They definitely moisturize my lips while wearing them. They are definitely my go-to when I want options without shimmer. Only caution is that they easily transfer and smear.

Eye Products

Elate Clean Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner 

  • Purchased from Green Tree Beauty 
  • Made in Canada
  • cruelty and gluten-free & vegan
  • Packaging made of bamboo

I have the “Origin Liquid Eyeliner” and it is a great liquid liner. The brush took a while to get used to as it is very flexible, compared to more common applicators. It is also a really wet product so I usually wait longer for it to dry and pat a little black shadow over it. I can achieve a great wing with this liner and it is very pigmented!

Pacifica Stellar Gaze Mascara 

  • Purchased from Dad’s Organic Market or here
  • Gluten & cruelty-free
  • 100% vegan
  • The company is rooted in creating sustainable products 

This mascara is formulated with coconut oil and vitamin B to condition eyelashes. This product is long-lasting – however it runs easily when in contact with water. I am eager to try their water-resistant mascara because whenever I laugh my eyes water a lot and this product tends to run easily. This product layers really well and you can build it up to create well defined lashes. I accidentally bought the “stardust” mascara, which is dark brown instead of black, however I am really enjoying the shade – it is growing on me. Definitely an amazing colour for the lower lashes!

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Review

Aveeno is a brand that I have grown up with, as it is a more natural, gentle and affordable alternative to a lot of skincare products. It has always been my go-to drugstore product line. Today I am reviewing the Fresh Essentials line, which incorporates active naturals that help to combat many environmental stressors in the skin.

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer
I wrote a review on this facial lotion over a year ago. So, I have actually been using this moisturizer to start off my mornings for over a year! My favourite thing about this moisturizer is that it has SPF30! I also love the packaging, the pump is so convenient! This product is really moisturizing and has a delicate floral scent which I love. This product does not cause acne, is really hydrating and is a heavier cream based product, so a little goes a long way!

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub
This exfoliator provides a very gentle exfoliation, so it is suitable to be used daily. This is a gentle product, which doesn’t leave the skin feeling raw afterwards. I would recommend using this product in the morning, or removing your makeup before you use it, as it does not contain soap. This creamy exfoliator is great at buffing and polishing away impurities to leave your face smooth and soft.

Aveeno Fresh Essentials Hydrating Night Cream
This cream is very comparable to the daily moisturizer, same scent, consistency and both contain vitamins A, C, and E. I love how this cream does not cause acne, as most night creams tend to do that to me. This product takes a bit to absorb into my skin, as I tend to use more of it for a more hydrating effect. I massage it in and it absorbs quite nicely. I have eczema and this is the first winter I have not gotten huge dry patches on my face and I do believe it is because of this product.
