Plastic Free Make Up - Natural & Organic
Plastic Free Make Up – Natural & Organic


.
We all know that plastics are bad for us, our health and the planet. And hopefully You have been taking the steps to reduce it in our every day lives & were left wondering – what about make up? Especially if it’s natural and organic? It’s about time we all took action and took responsibility for our actions – every little bit counts! Even not buying or using plastic straws. Or having a lunchbox. Because you are not producing considerable amounts of trash every single day, when it is easily avoidable. Have a Starbucks habit? Take a reusable coffee cup with you. So many people don’t actually know, or choose to ignore, the fact that coffee cups aren’t recyclable. They are not made from paper as one would assume, they are made from mixed materials, and lined with plastic from the inside. Just think what would happen if you poured hot coffee into real paper cup – it would melt within seconds. So, your every take out cup you ever got are still polluting our planet somewhere. Yeah, sorry about being the bad guy for pointing that out.


Thankfully Zero Waste movement is going strong, and more and more people people are joining it. Myself included. This post is for those of you wanting to significantly reduce plastics in your make up stash – let me show you the green beauty options!

Don’t beat yourself up about the products you currently own, just replace them with plastic free options as you go along. It is a bit tricky to avoid plastics all together as I don’t know one company who would house all of their make up products in plastic free packaging (plastic lids and pumps are common) nor I know if it can be done at all, but I wanted to highlight the companies who are trying their best. So, let’s get into it?ย 

ย (Little FYI note upfront, I haven't tried all of these products, I am only one person, but give me time and I will work my way through them, ha. Ask me questions on IG about the products I own and I will do my best to answer)
Zao Organic Make Up

Zao – refillable and recyclable bamboo packaging on most of their products. Bamboo palette for your own customized collection. Review here.

Pure Anada Lip & Cheek rouge in Isabella swatch

Pure Anada – cardboard packaging on pressed pans, like foundation, blushes and eye shadows. metal tube mascara & lipstick. Big fan of foundation & other powder products like blushes & shadows – the pigment is insane! Also, any naysayers claiming that green beauty is boring 50 shades of brown, should take a look at this brand. I have a few posts here, here and here.ย 

RMS Beauty Lipstick Swatches

Living Nature – foundation in glass. Blushes and other products in recyclable cases.

Kjaer Weiss – ultimate refillable line. Uber expensive, so make sure to try samples first to see it is for you.ย

Natural and organic make up reviews and swatches – Green Life In Dublin

A quick post for today, a collection of my green beauty make up swatches (and links to the reviews where apt) I have had over a course of few years. Be prepared for way for swatches coming your way on my IG, Facebook, & Pinterest too – after spring cleaning my stash I collected all the samples I own, and instead of just throwing them away, why not be of service for all of us and post a series of natural products swatches? I myself find them crucial, because vast majority of my make up comes from online – from LoveLula, Citrine Natural Beauty Bar,ย  GlowOrganic Brighton, PureAnada, Amazon and a few other retailers.
