I was torn about publishing a new blog post. I posted yesterday and there has been some interesting discussion going on, and I would like to hear more opinions on the subject. But, I gotta get on with my life. So I'll just request that people read the post below this one and leave lots of comments! But for now, on with this one...
Inika cosmetics are an Australian owned, vegan, mineral make up. You can order online, or through a few stores in Australia, the UK and the US. Be warned: they are expensive! More than I would have ever considered paying for make up. I had to convince myself that it's worth it to support a vegan company, that it is a good product, that I spend money on nothing else so this is my luxury item... I still feel bad about the price, but DAMN I love the product.
I use Mineral Foundation #17, Passion. I also purchased the mineral setting powder, which can go under the foundation on oily complexions, or over for a more 'matte finish'. I also bought their vegan make up brush, which is the softest and most luxurious feeling brush I've found--and it contains no animal hair!
The foundation leaves my face feeling smooth, and it stays put all day. Even after a sweaty bike ride home, my face is still looking good. A little goes a long way, too, so it makes me feel a bit better about paying so much. Plus, the company purchases carbon offsets to neutralise their shipping emissions.
If you're looking for a bit of luxury, or you don't mind spending a bit on quality make up, check out Inika cosmetics.
