Jane Iredale Cosmetics Review
Hello & Happy Sunday!!
As part of Eat Drink Shrink’s ongoing mission to feature not only modern vegan recipes, but to showcase non toxic cruelty free products.. I’m beyond elated to feature one of the most highly coveted green beauty cosmetic companies..
From multi-colored powder palettes to multiple concealers/foundations that come in an array of shades to match every skin tone.. Her products are innovative, diverse, and the quality shines through even in the packaging alone.
If you’re looking toe explore natural cosmetics, but need help navigating the line, get two reviews from the Eat Drink Shrink Contributor and stay tuned for a personal review from myself in the coming weeks!
Tantasia – Self Tanner and Bronzer
First of all, I am extremely fair skinned, so much so that I basically gave up on tanning and tanning products around age 21, just accepting my Snow White glow. However, I gave Tantasia a try and I’m not at all disappointed. The cool part about this product is that it worked instantly and also over time. I used on my legs when I wore a summer dress the other day and I had an instant bronze – yet it wasn’t too overpowered on my fair skin, it was natural looking.
I continued to use it for a solid two weeks which built up a solid “tan.” The best part is that ingredients are so clean compared to other similar products out there as the last thing I’d want to do is add more fake to my fake tan. I was overall very happy with this product!
Absence – Oil Control Primer
Overall this product was alright. It did a fairly good job at keeping my oily skin at bay so I have no complains in the oil control department. However, I did find it a bit heavy at times, given it’s compact cream consistency.
Circle/Delete – Concealer
I was pleased with this product as I actually find it a rarity in the natural beauty products category. There are plenty of natural concealers from different companies but finding one that has an orange tone (to cover dark) and yellow tone (to highly features) has not been an easy find for me. I highly recommend and will for sure be adding this to my profession and personal kits.
PureBrow – Brow Gel
I have a love/hate with this product. To be very honest, if I did not have training in make-up application, I would have likely messed up on the initial application and called it a day. However, I knew to keep playing with it. The application wand is a bit big and I feel that it should come with a separate combing tool. However, the more I used it, the more comfortable I became with it. Each time I apply I do have to use a q-tip to clean up the edges due to the large wand hitting some hairs that most definitely do not need to be defined! I did begin to get many compliments on my brows so it was obviously doing its job. Overall, I recommend this product, but with a lesson or two on application in person with a make-up artist or an online tutorial.
Hi everyone! Today I have the pleasure of reviewing a few products from Jane Iredale. Jane Iredale is all natural mineral makeup and skincare line that is vegan and cruelty free. I have terrible skin, and have used numerous makeup companies to cover up my imperfections only to create the problem worse! This is my first plant based makeup and since I’ve been using Jane Iredale my complexion has drastically improved.
I received the Pure pressed Base Mineral Foundation powder in Light Beige. It comes in a beautifully designed heavy gold case that really protects the powder inside, especially when I am on the go and throw the powder in my bag. The Mineral Foundation is made from micronized minerals, that are free of synthetic chemicals. It contains antioxidants such as Pine Bark extract and Pomegranate Extract which aids in minimizing UV damage. This powder is a full coverage powder, foundation and concealer in one, containing broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 20. It is also water resistant up to 40 minutes, which is great for me since I live in a very tropical climate and I sweat a ton!
The powder comes in 22 shades in three different categories, Warm, Neutral, and Cool. I received the Light Beige color in the Cool category and it matched my skin tone perfectly! I apply the powder with my personal small kabuki brush, which I found easier to control than using the thin makeup pad it comes with. It gives my skin the full coverage it needs without appearing to be “caked on”. I absolutely love this powder and it leaves my skin glowing!
I also received two concealers, the Disappear Concealer with Green Tea, and the Zap & Hide Blemish concealer. The Disappear Concealer comes in 5 shades and the Light shade was perfect for my skin tone. It is a matte, oil-free, opaque concealer that is strong enough to even cover scars and tattoos! The Green Tea Leaf Extract calms and protects the skin while also providing bacterial protection for breakouts. It comes in a small tube with a velvet top applicator to smooth on directly from the tube onto the skin. I use it everyday for my under eye circles and it blends very well with the Purepressed Powder.
The Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer is a double-ended tube that soothes and protects the skin. It comes in three different shades and I received the Z1, which is their lightest shade. The Blemish Balm side is a clear stick containing beneficial botanicals and antioxidants to soothe redness and irritation. You apply this side first before using the Blemish Concealer side which is the creamy colored concealer to hide the blemishes. It contains ingredients such as Chamomile, Tea Tree, and Green Tea leaf oils that calm and protect the skin from future breakouts. I love the connivence of this stick, though a little harder to blend in than the Disappear Concealer tube, though both products work very well with the Purepressed powder.
Overall I throughly enjoyed using Jane Iredale’s natural makeup products and they are now a staple in my makeup routine. I can’t wait to try more of her products, which range from a full makeup line to self tanners and even nutritional vitamin supplements for acne prone skin! Thank you Jane Iredale!
