Human Nature: Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation & Mineral Hydrating Lipstick [Sponsored Review]

In search for natural, organic and environmentally friendly beauty products, I recently came across a really good find!  



Started in 2008, Human Nature is a social enterprise that is Pro-Philippines, Pro-poor, Pro-environment and Pro-animals! Read more here! I love their vision and the actions they have taken! 





In my previous post of "The ugliness behind beauty", I wrote about the various harmful chemicals present in our makeup. Today, I have 2 products to share and review on: Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation & Mineral Hydrating Lipstick!



Perfect Coverage Mineral Foundation is formulated with multi-functional rice powder, bamboo powder, and Vitamin E to give medium to high coverage and help seamlessly cover imperfections! It leaves you only with a velvety soft matte finish, perfect complexion, flawless-looking, shine-free face... and not the harmful chemical ingredients found in regular foundations! Just the perfect match for your skin you've been waiting for!


Available in 4 Asian-friendly shades:

Vanila - Light (I got myself this)
Honey - Fair
Caramel - Medium
Toffee - Morena





To Use:

Using a sponge or brush, apply evenly onto skin in gliding motions. Best used on a moisturized face for longer lasting effect.

Verdict


Texture: Fine powder, leaves a soft finish

Product Rating: 8/10

If a makeup product is 100% natural, I am half sold. The other part of winning me over depends on the shade of the product, the coverage and other factors like how long can it withstand the elements of Singapore and etc.

In terms of coverage, I would say that it is pretty good for a powder mineral, although not comparable to a cream or liquid foundation. That being said, 1 layers of this will cover up most imperfection on its own.



In terms of the shade, they offer 4 different shades. I got myself vanilla as it was the closest shade to my skin tone. Human Nature understands that the consideration of shade compatibility would be an issue for their customers, so it is good that their makeup line is available at all 4 Vitakids Outlets! And yes, I went down to the outlet at forum to get the actual product shades for the photo above!



Overall, it controls my oily skin pretty well~ It doesn't leave my face feeling suffocated, in fact, it feels very natural. But on a hot humid day, the foundation will definitely "melt" and fade away, the beauty of this product that I can always reapply when I need to. But please do wash or change your sponge routinely.

I will purchase this product again, especially when it is this affordable with 100% natural ingredients!

For a lipstick, this has everything I am looking for! It is moisturizing, well pigmented, offers a little sun protection, has ingredients that are natural (100% no harmful chemicals or toxic substances) and very affordable! I got my lipstick in Sweet Nectar which has a netural shade (photo below), I am now looking at getting myself a lip gloss too!
