How are You, I hope You are well? Today I am starting long awaited 2020 Best Products series, this time I am focusing on make up. Even though I wasn’t wearing it for much of the last year, I still have some beautiful natural products to recommend. Shall we start?
Hope all of You are well! Getting into festive activities as much as possible? Slowly but surely I am getting there too, but what I wanted to share about is my Winter Make Up look I am sporting lately. I have never been a girl to switch my make up for the cold season, but RMS Beauty Temptation* lipstick from Naturisimo have changed all that. I’ve already reviewed RMS lipsticks here and this is the same lovely creamy moisturizing formula with amazing pigmentation. I am a fan! Let’s look what other natural products are on my face? Oh, and before You ask, leopard print and bright plaid go very well together in my universe. Bring on the the textures, patterns and as much of bright colours as I can!
Hello Lovelies, I hope You are well! Renata here showing my natural and organic lip products. A lot of them will be featured and/or swatched on my blog, so I will link those posts for Your convenience. I also have green beauty swatch gallery on my Pinterest & Facebook, so I will invite You to check those out too – I find swatches invaluable tool when choosing new products online, so I am hoping these will be helpful to You! In order of showing, here are the products I got.
Hope life is treating you well and you are enjoying summer! Today I ordered both my blogger and personal order from Love Lula (it is important to me to support brands and businesses I believe in) and I got thinking what products I purchased from Love Lula time and time again? Turns out more than 20 and counting! Check out this FB album for nearly 90 Love Lula related posts and reviews. My love for this wonderful online store runs deep!

.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?
(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 – refillable and recyclable bamboo packaging on most of their products. Bamboo palette for your own customized collection. Review here.
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.
RMS– selected products housed in glass pots. Mainly concealers and lip & cheek stains, bronzers and luminizers. Sadly new products like eye shadows and palettes are in plastic, I am not even sure why? Lipsticks are in aluminium bullets, review here..
100%Pure – cardboard palettes, lipsticks in metal tubes. Cream foundations in glass, blushes and bronzers in metal tins.
Living Nature – foundation in glass. Blushes and other products in recyclable cases.
Studio78Paris – cardboard or glass for selected products like bronzers.PHB – eye shadows in cardboard boxes. Foundation looks like it is in glass, but I am not too sure.
Couleur Caramel – cardboard palettes, single pans, lip gloss & foundation tubes. Customizable cardboard pans. Good quality make up too, big fan!
Kjaer Weiss – ultimate refillable line. Uber expensive, so make sure to try samples first to see it is for you.
Axiology Beauty – vegan lipsticks housed in metal tubes. Not sure about lip crayons though.
Vapour Beauty – foundations, blushes and bronzers, as well as primer housed in metal tubes. *Note in 2020 – the brand has sold out since, changed the ingredients & packaging to plastic. Sight.
Avril – wooden chubby lipstick thing & lip/ eye liners. Cardboard eye shaddow palettes. Same with Benecos.
Boho Green Make Up – almost entire line is housed in bamboo or cardboard packaging. Adorbs.
Ere Perez – cream multiples in glass pots. Concealer in glass pots. Great formulas at that. Wooden pencils and metal tubes for lipsticks.
Fat & The Moon – make up & other products all in tins and glass with very little plastic.
So there’s that, the brands & products at the top of my head. I hope this blog post helps at least one person, I would be very happy with that! If I missed any brand, be sure to let me know on any social media or in the comments. Let’s share the clean beauty love 🙂
