Living Nature – Luminous Pressed Powder in Light

Living Nature – Luminous Pressed Powder in Light

If you’re a regular read of Beauty Best Friend then you’ll know that I’ve reviewed a few products from Living Nature over the past year. It started with their Summer Bronze Pressed Powder that I fell in love with last Summer (you can read that review here). Living Nature was launched in 1987 in New Zealand. Their products contain no synthetics, use only 100% natural ingredients, preservatives and fragrances and are never tested on animals. Today I am reviewing Luminous Pressed Powder from Living Nature, it is available in three shades and I have the Light one. The pressed powder contains a range of natural minerals that combine to make this powder reflective and aim to add a soft luminous glow to your complexion. I loved the sound of this as I find a lot of pressed powders can be very matt and make your skin look dull and dry. I like Living Nature’s packaging, the black palettes are classy and simple, and I love that Living Nature’s circular...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #5

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #5

Welcome to the fifth episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Did you know that the average woman ingests 2.4 kilos of lipstick in her lifetime? Ewwww! Some lipsticks contain small amounts of lead which is poisonous, and other chemicals, so today I am reviewing Living Nature lipstick in Precious* that contains only 100% natural ingredients. Living Nature is a New Zealand beauty brand that uses only 100% natural ingredients, preservatives and fragrances in all of its products. This is the fifth lipstick that I have tested as part of...

Living Nature – Summer Bronze Pressed Powder

Living Nature – Summer Bronze Pressed Powder

I was recently contacted by Living Nature to see if I was interested in trying out their Summer Bronze Pressed Powder*. I hadn’t heard of Living Nature before this, but being a brand that only uses natural ingredients I was really excited to try out this product as I am currently on a mission to replace all of my everyday skincare and make-up products with natural equivalents. Living Nature was launched in 1987 in New Zealand. Their products contain no synthetics, use only 100% natural ingredients, preservatives and fragrances and are never tested on animals. Their full range of cosmetics and skincare is Certified Natural by BDIH Germany, and their policy is ‘if there is any doubt about the safety of an ingredient, we don’t use it’.I love their philosophy! They also harness a lot of New Zealand’s native botanicals like Manuka Oil, Hallo Clay and Kelp and use these within their products. The Summer Bronze Pressed Powder is housed inside a nice black metal compact along with a small...
