This brand interested me because their products are vegan and they are paraben, gluten, fragrance, and cruelty-free. The World Burn Congress, Cancer Wards, and the Medical Community recognize Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics.
Starting off with the foundation (Island Goddess Prep, Prime & Powder), I found the formula to be very unique – it is more so liquid than cream and it quickly turns to powder once blended on the skin. I have combination-oily skin and thought this worked great because it set quickly and did not move around. You wouldn’t even need to set this with powder. It sits beautifully on the skin; it has a matte finish. It has medium coverage but can be built to full coverage. It comes in a glass bottle which is not ideal (no pump) but it is fairly easy to pour out.
This is in the lightest shade; Ocean Surf, which is described as an ivory shade with warm undertones. This was light enough for me but it did have a slight pink (cool) undertone which is not what I usually reach for since I have a neutral undertone. Blended out on top and poured on the bottom.
This brand also has a cream foundation (Skin Care Cover Foundation) and it comes in a tin packaging. I tried to use this as a concealer but it was too thick and cake-y for under my eyes. I instead used this on blemishes and scars and I really liked the full coverage that it gave. It is a thick cream consistency.
Next, is a light/translucent powder (Hawaiian Highlight) which is a very finely milled pressed powder. I love using this all over to set my face and it does not look cake-y at all. It does not contain any shimmer or glitter; it mattifies very well. There is only one shade of this “highlight” named Sky. There is no swatch for this since it is translucent.
This eyeshadow duo (Seaside Mineral Dual Jewels) is extremely pigmented and buttery; I love the formula of this.
They have many different shades, this duo is named “Jelly Fish”. They both contain shimmer.
Lastly, is a lipstick (Hawaiian Petals Lip Plumping Lip Shade) which claims to be plumping however, I did not notice much of that. It is very creamy and moisturizing; does not drag on my lips.
The shade “Coral Reef” is a peachy, nude shade that is a touch frosty. I love the shade but the frosty aspect is not my favourite.
Overall, I like these products and other than the shades/colors I thought the formula of all of them was amazing. The liquid foundation really has a unique formula and I would imagine that those with an oily skin type will love it. The eyeshadow also has a nice buttery formula; I would love to try more shades. The pressed powder is also great for carrying in my purse to touch up since it is extremely light, it does not cake-up.
