MAKEUP FROM THE ORGANIC SKIN CO

MAKEUP FROM THE ORGANIC SKIN CO

 

The skincare company WORLD ORGANIC  founded by new Zealander Megan Douglas, just keeps on growing. I have known Megan since her early modeling days- in fact it was her face that I made up for my very first magazine cover (way back in the 80′s). Apart from having being a fabulous model & an even more fabulous fashion designer, Megan is also a qualified herbalist (read about her background HERE) & has used her considerable skills in this field to create her own Organic skincare company.

I met up with Megan recently as she was keen to show me her new makeup range which she has developed herself using all natural & organic ingredients. I have to be honest & say that as a makeup artist I have often been skeptical of ‘all natural’ makeup ranges sold in health food shops, as they invariably come in a hideous colour range with orange being the predominant hue! Not so with this gorgeous new makeup…..

The Organic Skin Co makeup collection comes in packaging that is stylishly cool, with a level of sophistication that is equal is any other high end makeup brand. The range has everything you need, from lipstick & gloss, through to liquid foundation & cream blush.

I have been impressed with the  Sunkissed Bronzer that works like a multi tasking BB Cream, offering a light & natural coverage with just the right amount of colour. it also has a very subtle shimmer created with Mica & Mineral Pearls, which reflect light to create a luminous finish. You can mix this bronzer with your favorite moisturizer for just a hint of colour, or use it alone for an instant tan. Sunkissed Bronzer retails for $51 & you can buy it online at World Organic.  

For me the stand out product in the range is the Pressed Eye Shadow, a 100% pure mineral composition that glides on the skin, leaving a velvety smooth finish. These shadows are artisan pressed into a small jar that looks to me like it will last forever- as you only need a small amount with each application & the pigment is really intense. I have been testing out my favorite colours in the range & have been suitably impressed with their longevity, plus I love how they are not too powdery- hence no fallout on the cheeks. I also gave some shades to my mum to try & she said they lasted all day & had great colour intensity.

  • ‘Canvas’ is a matte cream shade that works well as a base highlighter for all over the eye or just under the brow.
  • ‘Midnight’ – a cross between dark aubergine & charcoal- the perfect shade to create smokey eyes that are not too heavy. (This shade is almost identical to MAC ‘Smut’)
  • ‘Burnish’- a highly metallic golden bronze, apply it across your eyelids for a glam evening look.
  • ‘Orchid’ – a stand alone shade that is a cross between pink & peach with a hint of gold. Gorgeous for summer & so easy to use!

These shadows are great value at only $29 & you can buy them along with all the other World Organic Products on their Website . While you are there, check out the gorgeous River Veda essential oils- their Jasmine fragrance is heavenly!

  1. I have used the gold shimmer eye shadow and it lasts all day and doesn’t crease or bleed off under the eye – Great new produce!!!!

  2. Totally agree- these mineral shadows have great staying power & good intensity. You can also use them wet: try dipping a fine brush in water, then the eye shadow & use it as an eye liner.
