I was recently asked if I would like to try some of the make-up products from alva, a German skincare and cosmetics brand. Always looking to find new and exciting products, I leapt at the chance and boy, am I glad I did! This post brings another multipurpose, space saving, must-have product for your kit – it’s getting to be a habit I know, but this one may just top the rest…
alva Green Equinox
Completely versatile, this truly is a multipurpose product and can used alone or mixed with other products to create your own, tailor-made cosmetic collection; from nail polish to lip gloss, this powder is far more than a run of the mill eye shadow.
Incredibly easy to use, the powder can be applied with a brush directly onto the eyelids or cheeks if you are using as a shadow or highlighter, or mixed with water to create an eyeliner. Alternatively, blend the powder with a small amount of clear gloss, water or Aloe Vera gel to create a lipgloss or stain of your choice and if that wasn’t enough for you, the Green Equinox powders can also be added to a few drops of clear nail polish, so you can create some beautiful nail colours.
Incredibly fine and velvety in texture, the powder is free from mineral oils, Parabens, paraffin, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), colourants, caffine and alcohol. Certified by ECOCERT, Green Equinox is vegan friendly and of course, completely cruelty-free.
The powders are simply packaged in clear, stackable pots and priced at only £7.50 for a 2.25g pot, you get a lot of product for the money as I found that a little goes a long way.
