My newest quest has been to find clean makeup. Over the last few years – since I started my plastic free quest – I have somewhat just written makeup off. I have searched high and low for plastic free packaging to no avail. I have found some along the way, however they were products that I did not like. So I gave up, I just stopped wearing makeup. I had one mascara that I wore sparingly and it was not very green clean – sadly. I finally had enough and decided that I was going to wear makeup again – even if it meant collecting some plastic. Thankfully, we have a great recycling program in Norway and it helps ease my nerves.
For far too long I have been sacrificing things I like and my health to not collect plastic. While I am still a huge advocate of using less plastic, I think you need to find a balance that works for you and your family. The no plastic life was great for awareness around me – I have many friends that learn so much from it and say they are much more conscious about it now! This is great! So, this is all to say that now I am going to be starting a “Things I Love” series of posts.
First off: MyChelle Concealer. This concealer is in a small tube, like one of those thin capsticks. I was at first shocked by the size of this – the concealer cost from $10-14 – so I expected more. However, after usign it for a few days, I had no issues with the size. This concealer goes on super smooth and works so well with just a little dab. I got very lucky and the “Cream” color was a perfect match to my skin. I have been using the concealer as a primer on my eyelids as well as for my under-eyes. I have been trying many different primers and the minimalist in me was getting upset with the amount of products I was collecting – so naturally I was very pleased when I tried this concealer as a primer and it worked 10x better than the others I had been testing! I am very pleased with clean ingredients too!
