Natural makeup is like health food for the skin. I just love reviewing products that I am truly, deeply, madly in love with, than reviewing stuff that I find just… “so-so.” Every time I discover healthy all-in-one cosmetics that works for me, I’m like a little kid jumping in a mini trampoline with the best lollipop in town! Products that doesn’t only make you feel and look good, but actually makes you healthy (lessen your body’s toxin load) because it’s packed with lots of anti-oxidants and anti-aging properties– I believe that these awesome products are worth a BIG SHOUT OUT to the blogosphere universe!
Goodbye Benefit’s Benetint
Lip and Cheek Tints have always my main makeup bag staple, aside form the fact that they’re multifunctional, they can cover almost any kind of makeup color palette and outfit in a given day. And they give you that instant “healthy glow.” Today, I’m so excited to share with you my recent “healthy” cosmetic discovery. I honestly have to say goodbye to my tube of Benetint and Body Shop Lip and Tint Cheek Tints. Canary Cosmetic’s 100% Pure Lip & Cheek Tint in Cranberry Glow is just too good to be true! 100% natural, organic, gluten free, vegan, long lasting staying power, highly pigmented, what else could you ask for in a lip and tint cheek? Looking good while feeding your skin with all these antioxidants?
Hands down to the brand
I’ve worshipped this brand ever since I tried their 100% Pure foundation. (You can view my 100% Pure Foundation Review here.) Loved by international celebrities as well, including Eva Mendez, Kate Hudson, Madonna as well as Jessica Alba. A true beauty breakthrough, 100% Pure has also been featured in numerous magazines all over the world.
Checked the Cosmetics Database and this product has a whooping hazard score of…….1!! Love it!! 100% Pure uses only natural, food-grade ingredients and don’t contain synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial colours/ fragrances or any other harsh toxins meaning their products are safe for children as well as adults. The tints are colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments – not synthetic dyes or minerals. It feels great to apply all the healthy nutrients and vitamins of fruits directly on my skin and not have to worry about what chemicals might be absorbed.
Here is a list of the ingredients (you know they’re good when you can actually pronounce them!): Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Honey Beeswax, Grapeseed Oil, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), pigments of Cranberry, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Raspberry, Cabernet Grape, Plum, Strawberry, Cherry, Peach, Apricot, Blueberry, Carrot and Tomato, Strawberry Extract.
First and foremost, very cute packaging. And it’s small so it’s perfect for traveling! The colors look a bit tad darker but actually are very light, creamy and natural looking on application. But they easily blend on a well-moisturized skin. (Moisturize first!) Be careful though, the colors are highly pigmented so make sure to just dab a few strokes so you don’t look much like a clown. It glides very smooth on the lips. The colors also are quite long lasting, they’re so useful especially for spring and summer. It took me the whole day not to reapply again. You can build up to add up more color if you wish.
Quite pricey for a small tube (Php 800++, I actually forgot), but still competitive enough than other high-end brands. A lip and cheek tool that’s synthetic-free, I guess it’s reasonably priced!
Fruity and delightful! Think cranberry, cherry, and grape. I love using it every day and just topping it off with gloss!
Without a doubt this one is a must have. Aside from being a multitasker, I love that it gives me that healthy, flushed rosy glow, without looking all too made up, washed out and it’s not clogging my pores! And the best part is, you know it’s all 100% organic, free of parabens, petrochemicals, retinyl palmitate, phthalates, artificial fragrance, artificial colors & chemical preservative and the company is against animal cruelty. Packed with highly concentrated anti-aging vitamins and oxidants, pure fruit pigments in a base skin and lip softening and moisturizing sheer and cocoa butters. Our biggest defence against damage such as a premature ageing and wrinkles, done by free radicals like the sun, smoke, air pollution and cigarettes. Something we ingest everything should at least be nontoxic, right?
Goodbye my old Benetint!! Hello to another holy grail product!
