This morning I was setting a motivation for the new week (I’ve shared a picture on my Instagram) through a color palette of grey minimalistic shades. I said, I want this week to be clean (minimum rush and other disturbing factors), diverse (I want to spice up my daily routine with little pleasures and spontaneous decisions) and straight to the point (work-wise). I also gave a hint that today I am going to review a few products from the Kjaer Weis organic makeup, that definitely fits into my current minimalistic and monochrome mood. Plus, I love talking about organic makeup and scandinavian simple living vibe! Just look at this stunning packaging, and you’ll immediately understand what I am talking about! Oh and Kjaer Weis offers a very smart system of a refill (do you want to train your sustainable makeup approach? Here you go!) : Intelligent Refill system allows you to purchase refills of your favorite products or new desired colors and pay less when you re-use the same container.
A few words about Kjaer Weis : the company was founded by Danish-born, New York-based makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis, who put her knowledge and skills into developing a natural and organic color makeup line that has found it’s well deserved place in the niche of organic high-performance makeup. All the products from the Kjaer Weis are either Certified Natural or Certified Organic, made from the most luxurious and purest ingredients. Looks luxurious too – signature silver metal containers with KW initials won’t let anyone stay indifferent, am I right?! No compromises, no sacrifices.
The more organic / natural foundations I try lately, the further goes away that image of “old school” evil makeup foundation that covers the skin like a vacuum mask, erases my precious freckles and literally don’t let me breath. Kjaer Weis foundation is light (the lightest light!) on the skin, can be easily applied either by hand or with a help of a brush. I’ve tried Paper Thin shade that fits fair to medium skin tones with pink undertones. Totally love it’s capacity to even my skin tone and achieve a perfect finished and polished look without extra facial luggage. It’s formula contains organically grown ingredients know for their extra moisturizing properties – Sweet Almond Seeds Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil.
Gorgeous, warm pearl shimmer of Kjaer Weis Radiance Highlighter makes me feel sorry about all those days spent without an extra “sun-kissed” touch to my skin. Well, I am not a fan of “all that glitters”, and if you read my blog for a while, you should know that by heart. However, I love to emphasize my cheek bones in a very natural, sometimes even colorless way. To be honest, I completely fell in love with this multifunctional highlighter. Wherever you’re looking to add some youthful soft glow – cheeks, brow line, nose – this highlighter will be your
royal loyal secret agent. Plus, you can always use it as a transparent shiny eyeshadow for a very attractive wink wink situation. Formulated with Sweet Almond Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Beeswax, Carnauba Wax and Rosa Rubiginosa Oil to protect, moisturize and nourish skin while wearing makeup (is it an organic dream that I am daydreaming?!)
Not that far ago I remember myself trying an organic mascara for the very fist time, I am still hyped about that Truly Natural Mascara from Honeybee Gardens. I just got myself another green mascara addiction – Kjaer Weis Mascara comes in a compact size tube with a totally breathtaking ability of adding super length and volume. Perfectly defined lashes, smooth coverage, proven long-lasting potential and absolutely NO clumps. 99,8 % organic. Should I continue, or you have already added this mascara to your shopping cart?!
It’s probably that time of the year when I especially want my lips to be colorfully kissable (transparent lip balms are my regular go-to lip choice). Or, maybe, it’s just about me being more diverse and open for spontaneous makeup touches (so not regular of me). Well, I’ve opened myself for two shades of Kjaer Weis Lip Tint – Romance (on the left) and Dream State (on the right). Both are formulated with nourishing, super moisturizing and protecting green ingredients, like Shea Butter, Carnauba Wax, Castor Seed Oil, Lemon Peel Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil and Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract. Romance is a nice and sheer red-pink tone to add some love drama into a daily routine, while Dream State is a secure choice of nude for velvet finished neutral lips (my new alternative for transparent lips balms!!). By the way, a few days ago Kjaer Weis have released three absolutely stunning colors of their Lip Tint exclusively available at Net-A-Porter this month: Beloved (rich dark-magenta shade), Rapture (bold fuchsia) and Amazed (soft lilac). Hurry up!
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Embrace shade was yet another pleasant green beauty surprise! It’s nude pink shade is the lightest in the cream blush collection of Kjaer Weis, means just the right choice for a “no makeup” look and a soft color touch on the cheeks. While my skin is pale like milk (or white marble), I am going to take advantage of this blush just because I seriously plan to get some nice tan very verrry soon! But also because it’s a good reason to get the container empty for the Desired Glow (that is going to be my best friend for summer glowing cheeks!).
