A few months ago my neighbor Amy (amyrojekskin.com) introduced me Jane Iredale products and I'm obsessed.
For those of you who haven't heard of this brand, let me enlighten you because they are amazing. This makeup line was made specifically to help with skin problems caused by other types of makeup, i.e. acne and blackheads, by creating a natural makeup line from minerals. It's multifunctional so not only is it blush, it's also a lip stain or even eyeshadow. Their foundation is a 3 in one product, foundation, powder and, sunscreen all in one. They are also environmentally friendly and were one of the first companies to sign the campaign for safe cosmetics.
I had previously received a sample of Jane Iredale Just Kissed Cheek and Lip Stain in Forever Pink from my monthly Birchbox, but I had never bought the full size despite loving the product. Then my neighbor Amy, who owns an skin care clinic, gave me a Jane Iredale foundation, and I will never go back. Before Jane Iredale, I was a devoted Bare Minerals user, however this foundation feels completely different than the Bare Minerals foundation. I was amazed at how silky it feels when you're applying it, and then as the day goes on, instead of melting off it settles into your skin leaving you with a nice matte finish. Typically I prep my face for the foundation with the Lush Magical Moringa moisturizer/primer and then I apply the powder foundation which I think really helps hold the makeup all day (a feat I have never accomplished until this year).
Currently also obsessing over their In Touch Cream Blush in Clarity. This blush literally smells like chocolate, no lie. It goes on super smoothly and again, somehow lasts all day.
But my favorite thing about these products is that I'm finding myself with less acne and blackheads which I used to have a hard time managing. And there's nothing better than feeling like all I need is a little foundation and mascara. Thanks Jane Iredale for making me feel confident about my skin again!
