I have wanted to try organic, natural, vegan makeup for a while now and this brand has the most amazing ingredients! All of their products are free of harmful synthetic preservatives. This includes parabens, phthalates, gluten, mineral oil, talc and dimethicone.
Starting off with the brushes pictured above; they are extremely soft and do not shed at all. They are all made with bamboo handles and allergy-free fibers. I especially love the blush/kabuki brush for applying any powder (blush, bronzer,etc.).
I love that these foundations are actually good for your skin and look really nice as well. For whatever reason, I wasn’t expecting much from them and I was pleasantly surprised by the formula. It is light-weight and feels like a BB cream, It has a light to medium coverage and can be set out in a dish to thicken over night for more coverage as the oils evaporate. It sets fairly quickly to a nice satin finish that looks like fresh skin. The scent is not my favourite but it isn’t bothersome to me. I find that applying this with a densely packed flat top brush looks the best. The bottles also come with a pump and are light-weight (30mL); perfect for travel.
The swatches below are the product slightly spread out, not blended out, to show color. Mia (left) is slighter lighter and has a cooler (pink) undertone. Leisha (right) is a touch darker and has a warm (yellow) undertone.
The concealer is very creamy and not at all cake-y or dry on the under eyes. The yellow tint is perfect for hiding blue-ish tones under the eyes (veins). I use a bit of this with my finger and then layer on a flesh-toned or brightening concealer on top and it definitely makes a difference in hiding the blue, purple tones and prolonging my concealer as well.
The blushes, bronzers, and eyeshadows all come in the tin so that you can place them in any magnetic palette. Sappho organics has 2 magnetic compacts; I have the stainless steel palette.
The steel palette is very sturdy and has a big, clear mirror on the inside. It is a bit heavy since it is steel.
The Bronzer on the top left is “Bronze Goddess 1” and is labeled as a blush. This bronzer is very pigmented and smooth; it easily blends with little effort. It lasts an average amount of time on me; usually by the end of the work/school day it has pretty much faded. The Blush on the top right is “Tutz” and it is a blue-toned light, baby pink. It is pigmented like the bronzer but the shade is very light so I had to build it up in the swatch. This is great for a natural everyday blush. Both shades have a slight sheen/shimmer.
Right to left: Tutz and Bronze Goddess 1
The shadows are fairly pigmented and creamy except for the shade Bekitt that was a bit powdery. The shade Norma was the most pigmented and the other 2 darker shades were a touch less intense. They are blendable and last the whole day if used with a primer.
Left to right: Jono, Norma, Bekitt, and Gitte. Swatched without primer.
Overall, I really enjoyed this brand and knowing that whenever I use these products they are not harming my skin and my health makes me like them even more. Check out the ingredients on their website (link below) to be amazed! This is a Canadian brand.
