I’ve loved makeup and skincare since, well since forever it seems. It started out as the usual playing with mom’s cosmetics and later turned into camouflaging my face once acne took it over. I think I have literally tried just about every brand out there in hopes of finding the “Holy Grail” of makeup, the one brand that would magically make all of my flaws disappear and allow confidence to finally make a showing. I had pretty much given up until I came across Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques.
I honestly don’t even remember how I discovered this company, but boy am I glad I did! Not only are their products organic (and thus non-GMO), but they are nourishing, healing, anti-inflammatory (anti-acne..Woot!), and anti-aging.
From their website: “Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a new and innovative approach to makeup. We use the finest, natural and certified organic plant oils and extracts, soothing flower essences, plus beautiful minerals and pigments from the earth to create the most exquisite, healthy makeup available for your skin. Combined, these opulent ingredients have exceptional skin softening, moisturizing, and anti-aging abilities that revitalize, rejuvenate, and restore your skin’s vibrant glow.”
Organic plants are known to have more nutrients and minerals than non-organic, so it stands to reason that these products would be more nourishing to your skin. But I still needed to find out on my own, so I purchased a few samples to try (I used all the samples so I don’t have pictures to post..sorry..:-( )
I tried their powder foundation in both soft beige (a light neutral color) and warm honey (a light warm/yellow shade), and their finishing powder (which has arrowroot and clay in it for oil control) and a full-size of their lip gloss in summer melon (a peachy shade).
The foundation is very light and silky and feels like you’re not wearing makeup. For my skin, I need a bit more coverage, so my next purchase includes the creme and pressed powder foundation samples. But if you have clear skin, or mild acne, or even hyperpigmentation, the powder foundation will be perfect. The finishing powder is also very light and sets the foundation beautifully, giving an “airbrushed” quality to your skin. It also keeps the shine at bay for quite a while…a huge plus for oily-skinned gals like myself!
Their lip gloss is definitely going to be a must-have staple in my beauty arsenal. It glides on smoothly, isn’t sticky, tacky or messy and the color is gorgeous and lasting. Plus it tastes good, which is another plus for me since I tend to “eat” my lip products. 🙂
All in all, I loved everything I have tried by them.
Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a truly remarkable company with truly remarkable and beautiful products. I’m excited to tell people about them and even more excited to see what I know will be incredible results from using their products.
