I’ve been trying a couple of products from INIKA this past month and wanted to let you know how I’m getting on.
INIKA have a selection of Vegan Mineral Eyeshadows £14.50 & you can pick from 22 shades. I have two more neutral colours, the first is Honeycomb* which is a soft matte nude cream shade & is the ideal colour to wear all over the lid to give you an even light base colour. Or if you wanted that no makeup, makeup look it would be a great subtle nude colour that gives your eyes that bright fresh look. You can’t really see it in the swatch below because it is quite a light colour but I think its one of those colours that isn’t a WOW shade but is great to have in your collection and you will get a lot of use from it.
The other colour I have is Coco Motion* with is a very deep matte brown, its gorgeous through the crease & helps create a gorgeous neutral smokey eye. It’s so richly pigmented, I also found it easy to blend and the colour stayed vibrant on my lids all day without creasing.
These Mineral Eyeshadows are loose powder shadows (which can often be a pain) but packaged really well, the holes in the top where the powder comes out are quite small so you don’t end up with a mess when you unscrew the lid. Hardly any powder comes out unless you really tap it, so you’re not wasting product either.
I have also been using their Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation* £29.50 this is available in 4 shades & I have the lightest shade which is Cream & its a good match for me. The formula of this foundation is quite thick and creamy so you will need to take time to blend this into your skin and I found that it evened out my complexion and gave me a light to medium coverage with a dewy finish.
My skin looked healthy and fresh with a good amount of coverage (if you’re looking for a full coverage foundation this isn’t for you). I think this is a good base for the warmer months because even though the product felt quite thick it feels lightweight on the skin and still looks natural. Its certified organic and packed full of organic antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Rosehip. So it is nourishing, soothing and hydrating. It’s a foundation that keeps your skin looking flawless and also keeps it healthy too. So if you’re looking for a Foundation that is Organic, Vegan & will give you a healthy natural finish then this is one you should check out.
The packaging for the Liquid Foundation is really nice, it comes in a sleek plastic black and gold tube and it has a handy pump, which is so easy to use and travel with. I think it looks really nice.
INIKA also have an offer on until the end of April & you can get a complimentary Light Reflect Highlighting Crème with every purchase of their Certified Organic Liquid Foundation. So if you’re thinking about trying it now is the time.
Let me know if you have tried anything from INIKA or have any other Vegan brands you’d recommend I try.
