Foundation

GOLD Mineral Foundation SPF 15 £19.50, mirrorandmakeup.co.uk “I absolutely loved how this foundation looked on my skin. I have dabbled with mineral powders in the past without much success but found this one looked so natural on the skin whilst still giving me the coverage I like. It wore well throughout the day needing minimal touch ups. I only used a small amount each time meaning it will last ages! It is also fine to use for 30 months after opening which is great.” Louise S

SILVER Baked Mineral Foundation, £29.50, inikaorganic.com/uk

BRONZE Mineral foundation, £14, beautifulmecosmetics.com

Lipgloss

GOLD Tinted Lip Balm, £6.95, weleda.co.uk “Gorgeous colour, nice and creamy, very moisturising. Makes lips look lovely a very naturally made-up look, which is perfect for me. I will be buying the other colours in the range as I’ve been so impressed with the texture and how nourishing it is. A make-up bag and skincare must have all-in-one, in my opinion.” Katie Y

SILVER PHB Lip Glaze, £10.95, phbethicalbeauty.co.uk

BRONZE Jewel Lip Gloss, £12, beautifulmecosmetics.com

Eye Shadow

GOLD Dusty Road mineral eyeshadow, £7, beautifulmecosmetics.com “I loved this product. The colour was gorgeous and looks so nice each time I wear it. I loved the little pot that it came in and how it looked after I applied it each time.” Kate P

SILVER NATorigin Powder Eyeshadow, £16.50, natorigin.co.uk

BRONZE Ecoprincess Play Makeup Set, £24.99, organicbeautynow.com

Lipbalm

GOLD Calendula Unscented Lip Balm, £3.95, pinwheelbalms.com “This is such a simple lip balm but so moisiturising and I loved it. There is no scent. It is slightly rounded so it’s lovely to apply and my lips felt soft and moisiturised immediately. The moisturising effect lasted for ages after.” Nicola W

SILVER Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, £12, drlipp.com

BRONZE Dr Bronner’s Organic Lip Balm £2.99, drbronner.co.uk

Applicators

GOLD Vegan Kabuki Brush, £27.50, inikaorganic.com/uk “This brush was amazingly soft and fluffy considering it’s vegan. I used this to set my makeup with powder and it gives the most perfect finish.” Hayley C

Eye Liner

GOLD NATorigin Pencil Eye Liner £7.95, natorigin.co.uk “This eyeliner applies really easily, looks good and lasts well. It does however need reapplying or checking after a few hours as it can start to smudge/bleed. All things considered it’s a good eyeliner, natural and cruelty free which makes it better than mainstream alternatives for me.” Alicia S

Bronzer

GOLD Baked Mineral Bronzer, £29.50, inikaorganic.com/uk “The colour palate that I had was perfect for my skin, not too bronzed and it really did leave a sun kissed look. It was easy to use but I had to make sure that I used a very light brush so that the coverage wasn’t too heavy.” Kate P

Lipstick

GOLD Organic Lipstick £17, mirrorandmakeup.co.uk “This lipstick is a lovely medium Rose colour with plenty of pigment and a slight sheen. It applies smoothly straight from the bullet and feels comfortable although not overly moisturising on the lips. The pigment and lasting power were particularly impressive, it lasted several hours even whilst eating and drinking. The lipstick boasts great ingredients and the fact that it’s vegan is also a bonus!” Ana-Maria G

SILVER NATorigin Lipstick, £17.75, natorigin.co.uk

Tinted Moisturiser

GOLD PHB Botanical BB Cream, £18.95, phbethicalbeauty.co.uk “I am really glad to have been introduced to this product and brand. This BB Cream ‘blurs the line between makeup and skincare’ and it ticks so many boxes for me in terms of what I am looking for from a product and brand. It applies and absorbs really easily.” Fern T

SILVER ELIXIR SKIN ENHANCING DAILY DEFENCE CARE, £22 ixxi-cosmetics.co.uk

BRONZE Seahorse Plankton Beauty Boosting BB Cream, £14.99, beautykitchen.co.uk

Nail Polish

GOLD Sampure Minerals Nail Polish with mica, £13.50, sampure.co.uk “This is truly one of the best nail polishes I’ve ever used! Firstly, the brush was amazing. It made application virtually foolproof. Secondly, the pigmentation was excellent. I got flawless coverage with 2 coats but could easily have got away with just one. I wore it without a top coat to truly test it’s staying power. It lasted 2 full days without chips which is very good for me. Does not contain many of the nasties commonly found in nail polish.” Louise S

SILVER NATorigin Nail Enamel, £11, natorigin.co.uk

Mascara

GOLD NATorigin Lengthening Mascara, £15.95, natorigin.co.uk “The mascara is a good deep brown shade, which is perfect for my complexion. The mascara did thicken and lengthen the look of my eyelashes and stayed on all day. It doesn’t rub off too easily and looks tidy.” Elizabeth C

Powder

GOLD Dewy perfection finishing powder, £8, beautifulmecosmetics.com “It’s slightly shimmery, nicely smooth and good for use with a liquid or cream foundation. I think it would good for winter time as it’s slightly pale. It’s very good value for money.” Eleanor B

SILVER Sampure Minerals Setting Powder Glow, £19.50, sampure.co.uk
