Two ‘eco’ topics a day! That wasn’t premeditated. Let’s say we support everything that contributes to our environment but still gives a hint of stylishness to our daily life, and that happens to be fashion and beauty.
I am quite excited about this new brand: UNE by Bourjois. Especially their philosophy and image around the product, like ‘The beauty of tommorow’ is:
A beauty that respects women
A beauty that respects the skin
A beauty that respects the planet
The packaging is really clean and sober, and designed to minimise the impact on the environment. The products are free of GMO’s, paraben, artificial fragrance or colourings. And 13 of the 16 featured products carry the Ecocert label.
Evidently, I wouldn’t write a positive review about a product if I wasn’t positive about it. So I’ve tried a few of the UNE products: the Sheer Lips Gloss, the Sheer Lips Balm, Breezy Cheeks Blush, Nude Eyes Eyeshadow, the Sfumato Eyes Pencil and the Eye Brow Accent Pencil.
I really like the texture of the gloss; not to sticky! The lip balm gives you hydrated lips in a natural lip colour. The blush is not powder but of a compact, creamy texture to apply with your fingers for a ‘healthy glow’. The eyeshadow in nude color enlightens the eyes without giving an effect of wearing eyeshadow, which works great for me. Interesting is the Sfumato Eyes Pencil, I would definitely recommend this one if you want to make smokey eyes. I just have one small critic: I miss the brush at the end of the Eye Brow Pencil.
Conclusion: A very good, easy to use, and not the least, Eco friendly make-up label. Very suitable for women who want to use make-up that feels like your not wearing any but still make you look beautiful (like me)!
