Make up crush: Kjaer Weis Lip tint review

   






    One of the things that I miss the most about being able to walk into a regular department store and buy make up is the lust worthy limited edition items and beautiful packaging. I thought that I had to give up make up that was beautiful or that had brilliant on trend colours to buy safer alternatives. Recently though some amazing natural brands have stepped into my life that have proven me wrong, one such brand is Kjaer Weis.

    Developed by make up artist Kristen Kjaer Weis the brand is revolutionary in terms of it's approach to make up, by recognising health and beauty equally and using safer ingredients without compromising on luxury or contemporary design.

    I have been testing out two beautiful lip tints* in the colours Passionate and Romance and a lip brush* from the brand and I feel that it is one of those where once you have dipped your toe in the water you want to throw yourself in and buy more.

    The range uses organic ingredients certified by the CCPB, the Italian organic certifying authority alongside natural or wild crafted ingredients to product their fantastic formulations. The lip tints include some great nourishing ingredients such as Castor seed oil, Shea butter and jojoba oil.

    The unique refillable packaging is designed to be forward thinking and stylish but also socially responsible. I have to say I don't usually enjoy refillable systems but I have changed my mind after trying this one, it as is beautiful as it is practical and it looks and feels like an expensive item of jewellery. You can swap the lip tint pans very easily, you just need a pin, there is a small hole in the back and the pans pop out simply with no fuss. The refill pans come in a simple cardboard container ready to be put into the packaging.

    The colours are beautiful, Romance is a true bright pink perfect for the summer months and Passionate is a beautiful deep berry red/brown. Both are very wearable, the pigmentation is on the sheerer side but these are designed to be a tint rather than a lipstick, you can build up the colour by applying a few layers, once applied they leave a nice stain to lips even as they fade.


Ingredients:

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Euphobia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Cera Alba, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopheryl Acetate. May Contain +/- Mica, Titanium dioxide (CI 77891), Carmine (CI 75470), Iron oxide (CI 77492), Iron oxide (CI 77499), Iron oxide (CI 77491). Certified Organic by the CCPB - Italian certification agency (95% of the raw materials in this cream blush are organic).

    For those of you who avoid it these do contain carmine, I personally prefer it if I can find lip products without it but I will admit that I am willing to make an exception for this brand especially because the colours are so good, which is rare to find from a natural company.

    The lip brush is superb quality and applies the product perfectly, I personally do not mind popping it in my purse to reapply as needed, I even got some lovely comments from other women that saw the products. The formulation is lovely and moisturising on the lips, I don't use a lip gloss so for me the glossy finish is exactly what I look for in a lip product, they are also extremely comfortable to wear.

    I am very impressed with these, also available are cream blushes, eye shadows and a newly launched mascara, all equally as beautiful as the lip tints. Prices are £32 for the lip tint, £16 for the refill and £13 for the lip brush, all available at Naturisimo which offers free international delivery and has many great natural and organic brands.

    Have you tried anything by Kjaer Weis? Are you as tempted as I am?

  4. Awesome review Ana! I've been looking to try out their lip tints but they look a bit too sheer for me. I may still try them out just for the sake of it and plus the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! Xo, Audreiana from True Beauty By Nature
