Who Are They? A natural beauty company who create handcrafted products with superfoods and bio-ferments.
Eco-Credentials: 99.4—100% natural content, up to 87% organic ingredients,use locally-sourced, sun-dried glacial clay, found on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Vegan, handcrafted.
The Products: A fabulous array of base, cheek, eye and lip colours – not to mention a heap of pigments. The range has been significantly extended since I tried a few samples from the range and now includes skincare and lashes.
Favourite Products: I have tried a few items from the collection and was very impressed. I loved the HDD cream (it looks great on screen) and the Cream Tints are beautiful. I’d love to try more but sadly they are based in Canada and I try to avoid International shipping where possible (and of course the customs charges…)
Who Are They? A small British mineral make-up brand with a personal story.
Eco-Credentials: 100% natural, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Free from bismuth oxychloride, talc, fillers, lanolin.. the list goes on.
The Products: A range of loose powder mineral foundations (most suited to fair to medium skin tones) and concealers, blushers and bronzers and eye shadows. Unlike many other mineral make-up lines, the foundations are matte (which I love) – they also stock a selection of Ecotools brushes.
Favourite Products: As I mentioned about, I really like the foundations (no hint of a shimmer) and I am also a big fan of the Pearlescent powder which can be used as a highlighter or eyeshadow and can also be dusted over the foundation to give them a little bit of sheen – it’s beautiful.

Favourite Products: I have read a lot os positive things online however have only tried the Duet Perfecting concealer so far so obviously I can’t comment on the other products. I liked the concealer immensely but it is still at the testing stage and hasn’t made it into my kit as yet but who knows what may happen…
