KRAVE Eyebrow Definer Kit in Pecan Deluxe | Obsessesed with this Very First Organic Eyebrow Powder

2 Dec

I have been obsessed with well groomed, natural looking eyebrows. So when Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals released their organic eyebrow powder, I got it immediately. I am a Krave distributor and ordered this last March 2013. This is my very first eyebrow powder! I have reviewed Shawill and IN2IT too! I know this review is kind of late already but I still have it and still using it.

KRAVE Eyebrow Definer Kit in Pecan Deluxe

This eyebrow definer kit comes with a black box with a little fuschia design. The box and the eyebrow definer kit look so sleek and sophisticated. The eyebrow kit has a thin, sturdy plastic container with brush and mirror included. The brush is two-way: one for lining and the other for blending. It has an eyebrow wax and powder, which is unbelievably organic!

Krave Mineral Concealer | My First Concealer

12 Aug

This was my very first concealer! “Was” because as of this writing, I do not have this anymore. I gave this away since I don’t use it often and because I am a newbie in concealer, I find it a bit hard to use. I took notes about my experience with this before I gave this away so no worries regarding the deets below.

At first glance, you may think that this does not work at all. Don’t be deceived. The packaging may look flimsy and cheap but did you know that this is the first organic concealer in the market? Thanks to Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals for coming up with this.

This concealer looks a lot like a lip balm since its container is exactly like one. You need to rotate the bottom part to use the concealer. The label looks simple but it is filled with the needed info one is looking for.

Glamourbox is another beauty box that is worth your subscription. They had changes in their subscription, which opens only when they have come up with something; unlike BDJ Box, which has a monthly subscription.

REVIEW: Krave’s Oil Eliminator HD with super fruit

31 May

Remember the Krave event last January 12? This was one of the items I got for free, the other one was Visibly Rosy Mineral Veil.

This is actually an improved version of their Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator. Improved in packaging, weight, price, benefits!

For 520php, you get 6g of product. Better than the 285php for 3g of product, right? The product now comes in a box, too. The box is where all the information you need are in.

I tried this once way back February without using the sponge that came with it. I used my Ecotools kabuki brush in applying it and it did mattify my face but only for about 2 hours. So I thought to myself, “I like the Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator from the Poreless series better.”

This went on a hiatus for awhile since I still have some Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator left. Just recently, when I accidentally dropped my Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator and emptied the whole product compact (BOO! My bad!), I told myself why not make use of the improved version, the Oil Elimator HD, which has better packaging.

Click Continue Reading to see if the improved Oil Eliminator HD is better than the old version.

REVIEW: KRAVE’s Luxurious Perfection in French Latte

24 Apr

I have been loving Krave’s Complexion Perfection in Hazelnut yet I think it is a bit dark on my skin so I got myself another shade from the second type of their loose powder foundation. Luxurious Perfection loose mineral foundation has more beneficial ingredients than Complexion Perfection.

I chose the shade French Latte since it is for individuals who have fair skin with yellow undertone.

20130423-173027.jpg Product Description:

LUXURIOUS PERFECTION loose mineral foundation with Levomenol, Allantoin, Golden Jojoba, provitamin B5

HYPOALLERGENIC

NON-ACNEGENIC (won’t cause acne break outs)
NANO PARTICLE FREE

Experience our chemical-free, buildable coverage Luxurious Perfection which provides a natural SPF, poreless dewy finish and are enhanced with skin-soothing and anti-bacterial properties such as Allantoin (skin regeneration), Alpha Bisabolol (anti-bacterial/inflammatory), ProVitamin B5 (potent skin moisturizer) & Golden Jojoba oil (aids in the reduction of acne & regulates sebum production)
giving your skin an amazing radiant and healthy glow while providing you a flawless, air-brushed appearance. Hide the look of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyper pigmentation and other minor facial imperfections with just a few brush strokes without ever feeling dry, heavy or looking pasty and chalky.

SKIN BENEFICIAL KEY INGREDIENTS:

1. ALLANTOIN which comes form the comfrey root used for its healing, moisturizing, soothing and anti-irritating properties. It is moisturizing and keratolytic, meaning that it causes keratin in the skin to soften. 

2. LEVOMENOL is obtained from the Chamomile plant that contains high concentration of Panthenol that effectively stimulates the healing of the skin and is a superb ingredient use to soothe irritated skin.

3. ProVitamin B5 acts a shield to protect the skin from allergens, skin irritants that can cause acne, rosacea & contact dermatitis, great moisturizer too.

4. GOLDEN JOJOBA decrease your skin production of oil, fights the regulation of too much sebum of the skin & controls the formulation of acne.

Application:
Shake the jar and dab your brush in a swirling motion, tap it to remove excess powder & apply to your face in circular motion until desired coverage is achieved.

*Best to use with
OIL ELIMINATOR & SKIN HYDRATOR to achieve an oil free long lasting make up or MIST SPRITZ make up setting spray/ refreshing facial mist 

PRICE:
3 grams net weight P300
6 grams net weight P550

sealed!

One of the things I love about Krave is that they keep their products sealed. This guarantees us that the product is kept clean, fresh and good as new.

???????????????????????????????I thought the label was part of the glass jar cover…until I opened it!

???????????????????????????????I am not really a fan of the sponge/powder puff that comes with their product because I prefer to use brushes. It helps keep the product from coming out of the sifter, though. I also love the fuchsia glass jar but I can’t help but notice that this same jar is available in leading department stores.l

So how does this differ from the Complexion Perfection? The shades and the beneficial ingredients give it the term “Luxurious Perfection”.

???????????????????????????????I use this now daily since the weather is very humid and I cannot stand it. I don’t use foundations and bb creams nowadays because I feel they are heavy on the skin. Despite them being ‘light’, I still feel moisturizer and sunscreen is enough.

I have a love-hate relationship with this mineral powder foundation. I love that it gives medium coverage and can stand the summer’s heat. Thought there are times I feel it is melting and is too obvious on my face, especially when the heat is too much to bear. It gives a buildable coverage (light to medium) that lasts for hours. It gives the same matte and velvety finish I get from Complexion Perfection! It is also great as a setting powder for bb creams and foundations but I prefer using this alone. What I don’t like is that is I use it on top of any liquid or cream makeup product, I end up with an obvious white cast. I think the shade is a little lighter than my skin tone. I am actually in the middle of Hazelnut and French Latte.

Since I don’t use any liquid or cream makeup bases this summer season, I rely on this. As I said, for me and my skin, it works better when worn alone.

In addition to this, I add oil eliminator and skin hydrator on top to keep my oiliness at bay.

What I love about this:

(+) It is a product of Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals that means it is:

  • USDA certified organic
  • cruelty free
  • PETA approved
  • free from talc, paraben and fragrance

(+) Products are formulated and manufactured in USA.

(+) It has 3 Filipina friendly shades to choose from.

(+) It hides imperfections, conceals blemishes and evens out skin tone

(+) It looks so natural, and gives a “no makeup, makeup look”.

(+) It has buildable coverage from medium to full.

(+) It has great coverage even when worn alone.

(+) It is a great setting powder for cream and liquid foundations [mineral or not].

(+) It gives a velvety matte finish.

(+) It keeps oil at bay.

(+) A little goes a long way.

(+) Great even for those with sensitive skin! [I had no breakouts with this.]

(+) It is long wearing especially when used with a primer and oil eliminator and skin hydrator.

(+) It has natural sun protection. [I still apply sunblock to be safe]

What I wish:

(-) There are more shades to choose from.

(-) It won’t melt away on my skin.

(-) It doesn’t give white cast on photos.

(-) Packaging can still be improved.

(-) It was cheaper.

Overall: I like this especially when used alone… Unfortunately, I won’t buy another of this anymore and will just finish the 6g jar I have. I guess I will just stick with the shade Hazelnut.

???????????????????????????????I just shake the bottle to dispense the powder to the sponge and I pat it directly on my face. Light patting motion will do the trick.

Here’s a picture after I took a shower and done with the cleanse tone moisturize protect steps. I just used L’oreal BB cream after fruittee poreless toner and added Visibly Rosy Mineral Veil.

It didn’t really give much coverage but it improved my uneven skin tone and lessened my pale olive skin.

DIY: How to Make Organic Lip and Cheek Tint

10 Feb

I was thinking on making a different D-I-Y using all organic products. I came up with this lip and cheek tint! Read on to find out how!

STEPS:

1. Prepare the things you will need:
  • empty container (I used the sample container from Krave)
  • Human Nature Lip Balm
  • organic pigments (I chose Krave’s Blush Krush in Pink Muffin)
  • Organic Oils (Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil and Krave’s Panacea Oil)
  • toothpick (for mixing and scooping)
  • tissue (for cleaning/wiping mess)
  • makeup setting spray
  • candle
  • match
  • spoon

???????????????????????????????

2. Fill an empty container with the chosen organic pigments. I used Krave Blush Krush in Pink Muffin sampler from Krave. I did not use any other colors to keep it simple.

3. Scoop out an organic lip balm with a spoon. I chose the Peppermint flavor because it has an almost clear color. You can choose Human Nature Tinted Lip Balms if you want more tint.

???????????????????????????????

4. Light a candle with a match or lighter and put the spoon above the candle approximately 3-4 inches above. You might burn yourself so be very careful. Wait until the lip balm melts.

???????????????????????????????

5. Pour the melted lip balm into the container filled with organic blush pigments. Stir with a toothpick.

???????????????????????????????

6. Optional: Add 2-3 drops of organic oils to add more benefits on the tint. Do not add more than 3 drops because it may look to oily on your cheeks if you do.

2 drops of Panacea Oil

2 drops of Panacea Oil

2 drops of Sunflower Beauty Oil

2 drops of Sunflower Beauty Oil

7. Repeat steps 2 to 5 until you get the amount that you want. You may want to add more pigments or lip balm. Stir, stir, stir while the mixture is hot. It warms and hardens up in a bit so you have to be quick. You can always scoop out the mixture in the pot and heat it if you are not satisfied with how it looks.

8. Once you are satisfied, spray a setting spray and let it cool down and harden for about thirty minutes. You can even put it in the

???????????????????????????????9. Label your new D-I-Y and enjoy using it!

???????????????????????????????

I used this sampler from Krave so my pot already has a label.

Easy peasy right? Let me know if this post has been helpful! Thanks for reading!
