Scout Cosmetics Mineral Foundation

I haven’t used mineral powder foundation for quite a few years because my skin. I used to be in love with it, specifically bareMinerals, but as I get busier with life I prefer liquid products that are quick to apply and last longer through a hectic day. However, powder foundation formulations have come a long way since I stopped using them and I wanted to revisit them to see how well they do now. Plus, gone are the days of just 2 or 3 mineral makeup brands because now there is such a competitive market for them. Today I’m sharing my review of the mineral powder foundation from Scout Cosmetics, an Australian beauty brand that makes luxury cruelty-free, vegan cosmetics.  Continue Reading

Cruelty-free Vegan Makeup

During a community chat within a vegan group I was asked about which foundations are best. One of the harder parts about going vegan is replacing your favourite beauty with cruelty-free options, but you would be surprised to know that many of the great cosmetics in the market are actually cruelty-free or vegan already. With the increased public demand for compassionate products we’re seeing more brands changing their ways without compromising the quality or performance of their products. It’s a win win win – for us, the animals and the environment.

Take a look at my top picks and see if your favourite makes the cut, or perhaps find a replacement for your animal-tested products. Continue Reading

When it comes to flawless makeup, setting it is just as important as the foundation you use and your application. If you have oily skin you’re most likely already doing it but if you have dry skin you’re probably skipping it for fear of it making your skin flaky. It’s important to know that not all face powders are made equally. Some are better for dry skin while others are better for oily …. but my favourites are good for any skin type. They won’t dry you out or make you produce more oil. They will leave your skin looking flawless and extend the wear of your coverage. In my opinion, these are THE best face powders for setting your makeup.  Continue Reading

Mineralogie Liquid Hydration Sheer Tint Before vs After

Mineral makeup has come a long way over the past few years. If you like the “good for you” benefits of mineral makeup you no longer have to be restricted to a tub of powder and a buffing brush. Liquids are just as common in mineral makeup now and you can get a variety of finishes to suit your needs.

Mineralogie is a cruelty-free USA brand that prides itself on showing off how versatile mineral makeup can be. In my search for some new vegan foundations I was led to Liquid Hydration Sheer Tint. The question this review answers is whether a liquid mineral makeup, free from fillers and nasties, can actually perform to the standard of a chemical laden version.  Continue Reading
