Concealer
GOLD Mineral Concealer Green Corrector, £7.99, honeypieminerals.com “Soft powdery product which applies to skin really well and, because its a powder, it doesn’t crease or clump like some creams do, which is a big huge bonus. I have had dark circles under my eyes for forever and this is a rare product that actually fully covered them and lasted a good time on my skin. Very impressed!” Lydia A
SILVER benecos Concealer Beige, £6.95, benecos.uk
BRONZE Love The Planet Light Concealer, £12, lovetheplanet.co.uk

Eye Shadow
GOLD It-Pieces Refillable Make Up Palette, £26.45, benecos.uk “I enjoyed the convenience of using this palette which consisted of a highlighter, blush and four eyeshadows aimed at cooler tones. The colour palette is pretty and made it a lot easier to put together a toning look that would suit me. What I really liked about this product was that you can slide out the palette from the case and re-fill with any of the It-Pieces range, making it fun to try out different colours but also a much better alternative to buying new palette cases every time you run out of product or fancy a change. I’ve been impressed by this company as I’ve learned about them; they have the organic and vegan credentials but are also super affordable.“ Victoria J
SILVER Taupe Eyeshadow, £10, lovetheplanet.co.uk

Lipstick
GOLD Kiss Me Quick Lipstick, £16, tropicskincare.com “This lipstick was my favourite product! It was a perfect colour for my skintone and was just slightly darker than my natural lip colour. It had a pleasant smell and taste, which may have been due to the mango butter. It felt soft and moisturising when on and did not dry out my lips un-like some other lipsticks I’ve tried.“ Amanda M
SILVER Electric Coral Lipstick, 33 NZD, livingnature.com
BRONZE Natural Matte Liquid Lipstick, £6.95, benecos.uk

Foundation
GOLD Mineral Foundation, £24, tropicskincare.com “This was a lovely light mineral foundation which was vegan and cruelty free too. It gave good coverage for my face and was easy to use. It also had SPF 25 UVA and UVB added protection which was reassuring. I liked the fact I couldn’t feel it at all on my skin. Sometimes foundations can feel too heavy on my skin. This make up lasted all day for me.” Amy W
SILVER Champagne- mineral foundation powder SPF 15, £24.35, uogauoga.com
BRONZE Foundation Stick Ivory , £9.45, benecos.uk

Nail Polish Remover
GOLD Crystal Nail Polish Remover, £10.50, mavala.comIt works well, I felt it removed my nail varnish efficiently and left my nails feeling nice and soft.“ Ashleigh W
SILVER benecos Nail Polish Remover, £5.95, benecos.uk

Lipbalm
GOLD Lemon & Lime Lip Balm - Lemonade, 16.99 NZD, yesorganics.nz “I love the fragrance and it kept my lips lovely and soft. It felt really moisturising and didn’t feel sticky. I was really impressed because it nursed my dry lips from dry and flakey to super-soft and kissable in less than a week.” Catherine J
SILVER Vegan Lip and Cheek Tint, £14, sageandylang.com
BRONZE Original Nipple Balm for Dry Skin, Luscious Lips & Glossy Bits, £12, drlipp.com

Eyeliner
GOLD Brush Eyeliner, £18.95, zaoessenceofnature.co.uk “I am terrible at applying liquid eyeliner and gave up on it years ago, opting for pencils instead. However, I found this liner’s tip helped me to apply it in a really smooth way that is somehow quite forgiving with mistakes despite the striking intensity of the black. I loved the look and feel of the bamboo case - it makes the product feel quite solid which I think also helped me to apply it evenly. The liner lasts really well throughout the day without smudging or fading; I’ve loved the overall effect and been using it every day. The product is 100% natural and 68% organic. I’m now a liquid eyeliner convert.” Victoria J
SILVER Natural Kajal black, £3.95, benecos.uk

Bronzer
GOLD Cooked Powder, £23.50, zaoessenceofnature.co.uk “I liked this product a lot. The powder applied easily to my skin and the colour was strong but not overpowering. It made me skin look healthier and glowing and lasted well.” Amanda M
SILVER lavera Mineral Sun Glow Powder, £13.90, lavera.co.uk

Nail Polish
GOLD benecos Nail Polish (Hot Summer), £4.95, benecos.uk “I love the colour of this cute little polish. I love that it contains no nasties and that the smell is not at all over-powering, compared to most other nail polishes I’ve used. My nails stayed bright and non chipped for a couple of days. I’m so pleased with this that I’ve treated myself to a few more colours!” Sarah W
SILVER Mavala Mini Color Beige Chill, £5.50, mavala.com

Lip Gloss
GOLD Superfood Tints, £6.99, drlipp.com “Oh lovely little product! looks gorgeous and silky and is the same when applied. Slides onto the lips and stays there without drying! I can have dry lips so am wary of lipglosses but this one is wonderful and moisturising and has a beautiful colour and feel.“ Lila A
SILVER Lip Tint - Pinkalicious, 19.99 NZD, yesorganics.nz

Mascara
GOLD Mesmerise Mascara, £20, phbethicalbeauty.co.uk “The brush applicator was easy to use and produced a good effect thickening and lengthening my lashes. The mascara did not smudge and lasted for the duration of the day. The mascara was easily removed using my usual cleansing routine.” Vicki B
SILVER Certified Organic Flora Mascara, 29.50 AUD, zuiiorganic.com
BRONZE Aloe Vera Mascara, £20.75, zaoessenceofnature.co.uk

Blusher
GOLD Tender - natural lip & cheek colour with black currant extract, £12.60, uogauoga.com “I really enjoyed using this product - the lip and cheek colour is creamy, blends really nicely even just using the fingertips and is buildable. I loved the colour itself - it’s lovely and rich yet still appears natural looking both on the lips and cheeks. I loved the credentials of the product, not only are they natural and contain organic ingredients but their manufacturing processes are eco-friendly. I was really impressed by the product and I’ve discovered they have a really fun range to explore!” Victoria J
SILVER Mineral Blusher, £7.99, honeypieminerals.com
BRONZE Certified Organic Flora Blush, 28.95 AUD, zuiiorganic.com

Powder
GOLD Eco Glitter Fun SPARKLE 3pcs Blends Box 3, £15, ecoglitterfun.com “I love this, it’s so cool to have glitter that is biodegradable! It comes with aloe vera gel and a small bamboo brush to make it easy to apply. The aloe vera gel is really good at making the glitter stay on your face for a long time and isn’t itchy or irritable.“ Sarah W
SILVER Barefaced Beauty Powder barefacedbeauty.com

Tinted Moisturiser
GOLD Tinted Moisturiser, £26, phbethicalbeauty.co.uk “I enjoyed using this product. I found this blended into my skin better than my usual product and suited my pale skin colour. It lasted well throughout the day and my skin continued to feel moisturised.” Catherine M
