I’ve used a few Beautycounter makeup products in the past and had a great experience with most of them, so I was super excited to be able to try out a few more products from them recently! I was sent the Beautycounter Tint Skin, Dew Skin, Color Intense Lipstick and the One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes. I’ve been testing these products out for a little over a month now and am ready to give you my thoughts!
Let’s get the makeup wipes out of the way first, because they’re the only product in this bunch that I don’t love. I’ve mentioned several times before that I have very sensitive skin around my eyes and I’m forever on the hunt for a makeup wipe that doesn’t irritate this area, but unfortunately the Beautycounter One-Step Makeup Removing Wipes ($20) just don’t cut it for my sensitive skin.
Don’t get me wrong, they do a great job at removing makeup. However, like pretty much all other makeup wipes I’ve ever tried, they sting my eye skin and my eye area feels pretty sore after use. I still don’t know what it is in makeup wipes that does this to me, but it’s a super common occurrence when I use them on my eyes. I do enjoy using these to remove the makeup on the rest of my face, but I generally wear eye makeup more than face makeup, so I’d rather have something that removed it all and didn’t irritate my skin in the process. Back to my holy grail Bioderma Sensibio!
On a brighter note, I do love that these will biodegrade in your compost!
Onto the Beautycounter Color Intense Lipstick. These most definitely live up to their name! They are super smooth and creamy, easy to apply, and the color is SO intense. I couldn’t believe how vibrant and beautiful this lipstick was! I’m wearing the shade Girls’ Night in the makeup look below. It’s described as a classic red, but I personally find it has an almost orangish tone to it, which I’m totally cool with.
These also do have a hint of peppermint to them, which I quite like but also imagine would turn mint-haters off. These are truly so moisturizing and comfortable to wear, and they are surprisingly long-lasting as well. They’re pricey at $34 a lipstick, but I think that the price is justified in the ingredients and how nice they are to wear.
Okay guys… where have the Beautycounter Tint Skin and Beautycounter Dew Skin been all my life? I absolutely ADORE both of these. Turns out, they’ve been around for at least a couple years, but I’ve only just started hearing about the both of them recently. I feel like the beauty world has really been holding out on me, because these are some damn good products.
Beautycounter Dew Skin ($45) is my favorite of the two because it’s super practical for my kind of everyday wear. It has SPF, it feel incredibly hydrating and it has just enough tint to it to even out my skin tone and give me a really healthy looking glow. I’ll normally just apply this with my fingers and wear this on it’s own, but if I’m wanting a bit more coverage, I’ll tap on some of the Antonym Baked Foundation over top. They are a match made in heaven!
Beautycounter Tint Skin ($42) is my go-to when I’m wanting some coverage, but nothing too heavy. This is a buildable light to medium coverage foundation and feels so lightweight. It has a very skin-like finish and wears nicely throughout the day. It makes my skin look like my skin, but better! I have the shade Linen and it’s a perfect match for me.
And finally, the makeup look. It’s been forever since I’ve posted one on here, hasn’t it? It’s a goal of mine to be better about that! I know when I read someone’s review, I want to see photos of the product on someone’s actual face more than anything, so I definitely want to do more of that here.
For my face, I’m wearing the Beautycounter Tint Skin in the shade Linen, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (set with MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder), the Antonym Baked Blush in Peach and the BareMinerals Invisible Glow Powder Highlighter in Fair to Light (I never hear anyone talk about this but it’s my most used and favorite highlight ever!).
On my eyes, I’m wearing Bark (a luminous brown) from the Beautycounter Desert Sunrise palette (no longer available, unfortunately) all over the lid, up into my crease and along the lower lashline with a little pop of Pearl (an illuminating white) from the same palette on the inner third of my lid and the inner corner. This is a really simple eye look but I love how it makes my eyes pop! Whatever I was wearing for mascara doesn’t matter because it really wasn’t doing much for me, haha. I think it may have been the Gia Minerals Natural Lash Organic Mascara, which I really don’t care for. I filled in my brows with EcoBrow Eyebrow Defining Wax in Sharon (a clean dupe for Dipbrow).
On my lips, I’m wearing the Beautycounter Color Intense Lipstick in Girls’ Night that I talked about above.
