Beauty Review – Inika Mineral Foundation
With the party and gift giving season well and truly upon us, it may help to learn about a great mineral foundation I’ve found. Inika’s award-winning Mineral Foundation provides your skin with everything you could want from a foundation – excellent coverage of flaws, natural looking and light enough so that your skin can still breath! This foundation can also be used as a concealer.
Many mineral foundations contain nasty talc and bismuth oxychloride, but Inika avoid these along with preservatives such as parabens, preferring to keep it simple with only the following ingredients:
Mica (CI 77019) May contain (+/-) Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891); Zinc Oxide (CI 77947); Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499); Ultramarines (CI 77007).
To ensure the foundation stays put throughout the day and night with a fantastic consistency, I’d suggest using Inika’s primer. This lovely cream is applied after your moisturiser (or can be used without a moisturiser) and is a vital step in getting the most from your mineral foundation. I love the botanical scent and the fact the ingredients are certified organic.
Vegan girls will love Inika’s award-winning, Vegan Kabuki Brush which is perfect for applying the mineral foundation. This brush is big, fluffy and enables you to distribute the foundation evenly around your face with large and gentle brush strokes (that are super soft). Even the wood from the brush handle is ‘sourced from sustainable forestry.’
You’ll find the Inika range of cosmetics looks ultra luxurious. The sleek, Cleopatra shades of black and gold packaging make each product look equal to any pot or jar of Chanel or Dior. Inika also have a broad selection of foundation shades to choose from, so finding the right shade for your skin should be a breeze. I tend to like choosing a shade a smidge darker than I usually would as it provides a nice, sun-kissed glow.
All three products can be purchased at Content – Mineral Foundation(£21.46).
Content are also selling a gorgeous Christmas pack at the moment filled with Inika goodies. You will find a medium pot of foundation, mini Kabuki Brush and organic Berry Lip Whip in a classy gold purse.
The Inika line of cosmetics and brushes are certified vegan (by the Vegan Society), are 100% certified cruelty free (Choose Cruelty Free) and are made in Australia. To learn more about Inika, you can visit their website.
