This summer season has been severely hurting my allergies. My whole body is itching especially my face. My eyes have swollen and wearing any make up has become next to impossible. This makes me a little nuts because if I have some where to go I can spruce myself up. I have had to throw out all of my make up because it is making my eyes/face swell up more than ever before. I am not sure if this is the same for any of you greenies out there but since I am in search of new products I figured I would help you out and show you some of the stuff I picked. I’m in desperate need of hypoallergenic/organic make up STAT. I figured for now I could just get the minor essentials to see how my face reacts and then go from there.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eye Shadow I love these colors! This brand isn’t organic but it is hypoallergenic. Most of the other organic/green brands were insanely expensive for 1 color. I don’t want to have to go the ungreen route but to pay over $20 per eyeshadow color is a bit much for me. I am sure I am not the only one. This particular brand offers a few different color combinations like this that are way pretty.
Juice Beauty Glowing Cheek Coloris priced at $16.00 which is a bit pricey for blush but other organic/hypoallergenic blushes out there cost between $20-$30 so this is a great deal. Plus Juice Beauty is a trusted green cosmetic company. These are the only 2 colors I have found so far but they do offer bronzers as well. I think either color could work for multiple skin tones.
Logona Eyeliner Pencil for $10.50 is one of the least expensive eye liners I have found that are eco-friendly and won’t make my eyes blow up. The Logona pencil comes in 6 different colors so you won’t have a difficult time matching to your outfits. I personally prefer the liquid eyeliner pens but I haven’t found a green one yet so I suppose I am going back to pencils.
Physicians FormulaOrganic Wear Jumbo Mascara is only $9.99 which maybe a little more than some store brand mascaras but not a bad price for organic and hypoallergenic cosmetics at all. I kind of really love the packaging as well. It’s super cute. Mascara is one of my staples. I can get it on quickly and I often wear just that and some blush and I am out the door. I am excited about this one!.
