Posts in New Complexion

It is not often that a huge, multi-national cosmetic company chooses Australia as a test market for a new product. In the case of the new Revlon foundation, that is exactly what has happened.

Australia has been the lucky chosen market to test out the New Complexion Oil-Control Makeup. Aussie beauty buyers will be the first to put this formula to the test, and based on how it is received, tweaks could be made to the final formula before rolling it out into other markets. Is that exciting or what?!?!

Even when you have clear skin (like I raved about yesterday) you still want a good foundation. I am a fan of medium to full coverage foundations, but more than anything I want a foundation that doesn’t leave me oily. That is the most important factor for me. The sound of the new Revlon foundation appears to be up my alley, but what do I really think of it?

Before – A little patchy with some redness

After – Smooth and natural looking

What I Say ….

  • The formula consistency is smooth, creamy and on the thicker side of runny. It is easy to apply with fingers, sponge or brush, whatever you prefer. I find the method that worked for me best was applying with a brush for the most part and then ‘melting’ it into my face by smoothing over with warmed fingers.

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
