My Favorite Organic Cosmetics

Organic Makeup Palette | Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan & Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

Organic REFRESH/RENEW Collection Palette from Nouveau/Organica

There are more and more organic cosmetic brands hitting the market, however many still have questionable ingredients and I haven't found any that have come up with a convenient full face palette – Until now.

With 12 multipurpose products, packed with organic skin nourishing oils, in a slim and convenient pallet, Nouveau/Organica has filled that gap. Gluten-free, Vegan, Soy-free, Cruelty-Free and most importantly all Natural and Organic, this cosmetic palette is in a league of it's own.

From primer, foundation, contours, highlights to lip and cheek shades and eye colors, everything you need is in this sleek organic palette.  There are 8 cream products and 4 powdered colors, and with the ability to mix shades, you can create many more colors and shades.

I've been having loads of fun trying out this palette and mixing colors,

First in the palette is the Organic Concealer/Cream Foundation in your choice of Light or Medium. This is a rich a creamy foundation with the coverage of a concealer. It can easily be blended out for a lighter coverage and feels wonderful and light on the skin.

Next is the Organic Eye/Lip Primer, light and creamy primer with a soft-as-silk finish. I even found it great on dry skin areas of the face to even out skins moisture levels.

Then there is the Organic Powder Illuminator, one of the best hi-lights I've tried. With a pearly glimmer, it is not over-loaded with sparkle, a great color for more mature faces, while just enough glimmer to be suitable for young skin.

There is also an Organic Cream Contour, I think this would also work well as a concealer/foundation for those with very dark skin tones. Feels much like the foundation, in a dark blend-able color for contouring the cheekbones, mixed with a little of the other cream colors, it works very well as a bronzer also.

Also, there are 3 Organic limited-edition pressed powder shadows in shades for a subtle everyday look. These shadows can be used anywhere on the face including the cheeks, brow bone, eyelids and the colors also work as highlighters as well.

These colors are much more vibrant than pictured here.  See video for swatches.

The 4 Organic Cream Colours are packed with pigment. A little goes a long way with these highly pigmented matte shades. In 2 warm shades and 2 cooler shades, you can blend them together for a perfect color for you. A light sweep on the lips is all you need for a great pop of color, add a dab of a powdered color on the bottom lip for a bit of glimmer and to set the lip color all day. These cream colors blend well into the cheekbones for a creamy blush which leaves your skin looking hydrated and dewy.

Lastly there is the Organic Cream Smudgy Liner/Shadow Base. Add some depth to the powdered shadows by dabbing just a touch of this cool grey cream base on the eyelid beforehand. You can also use it with a liner brush and apply to the lash line for a smoky eye look.

The ingredients in this pallet are nourishing to the skin. The highest quality organic oils and butters are blended with clay and mineral pigments. Organic oils of coconut, argan, jojoba, sweet almond, grape seed, broccoli seed as well as shea butter make this line great for all skin types...What a concept, a multipurpose pallet of cosmetics that are actually good for your skin.

My only negative comment is that while most cosmetics do use titanium dioxide as do some of these shade, I would prefer to see non-nano zinc oxide used in place of this pigment. Otherwise, I'm pretty amazed with the quality of this line of products.

I'm absolutely loving this palette, with a great mix of matte and pearl colors, they all blend together very well, both powder and cream, and there's plenty of pigment. While a palette of 12 colors costs $89.99, a little goes a very long way and I can expect this palette to last for a very long time.
