I love makeup. I always have. It has the power to change the way a person feels about themselves, make them more confident and, with different styles, colours and techniques, can completely change the way a person looks. Switching over to more conscious, natural makeup brands has been one of my more tricky transitions. I’ve been experimenting with different brands for some time. I love to try new products. I’m quite sure I always will.
Inika Face In A Box
At the weekend, I bought the Inika Face In A Box Starter Kit from LoveLula. Ooh, it’s a good one! I’ve been wanting to try Inika for quite some time but wasn’t sure which products to buy. This starter kit is perfect for those with the same dilemma. I bought it in shade “Unity” because it’s suited to pale skin.
Inika use certified organic ingredients and are certified vegan.
Inside The Box
The box contains:
? Mineral Foundation Powder (3g) ?
? Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation with Hyaluronic Acid (10ml) ?
? Mineral Bronzer – Sunkissed (Full size: 3.5g) ?
? Certified Organic Pure Primer with Hyaluronic Acid (10ml) ?
? Certified Organic Natural Perfection Concealer (4ml) Mineral Setting Powder (0.7g) ?
? Mineral Blush – Rosy Glow (0.7g) ?
? Full-Size Vegan Kabuki Brush ?
The shades of the products are perfect for pale skin. The primer is a perfect base. A little goes a long way and it absorbs into the skin really quickly. I’ve been using the foundation – period week, I need all the coverage I can get during this phase of the month! It does a great job.The BB Cream replaces the need for two products and can be used as a lighter, quicker option. I do find you need to be quite quick applying it does absorb quickly. Also, I do put moisturiser on before applying this. I finish this base step off with the mineral powder, using the kabuki brush. I love these. My brush collection is quite large and I have some great brushes. This brush ranks highly in terms of softness and the blending capabilities.
The concealer is easy to apply with either a brush or just fingers and it doesn’t highlight my creases, which is what I have been finding with some other concealers. I don’t find it gives much coverage – my spots still showed through like slightly more concealed beacons as testimony to my time of the month.
Bronzer & Blusher
The bronzer is really subtle and gives a healthy glow. It definitely is more of a bronzer than a contour powder, it’s not dark enough to provide any contour definition. I love the shade as a bronzer though (handy, what with it being a bronzer). The blusher – wow! Possibly my favourite product in the kit! It’s a beautiful shade, really pigmented so you only need a teeny amount and it has a subtle shimmer to it. It gives you the perfect colour to make you look healthy and less ghost-like. I love, love, love this. I haven’t noticed any difference from the finishing powder, but then I’m not really sure what I should be looking for. Maybe I need to pay more attention to this.
Would I Recommend This?
Yaaasssssss! I’ve really enjoyed using these products. I’ve been continuing to use them every day since they arrived. My best friend over at A Girl & Her Giant has also enjoyed them.
