Abbey Jade Cosmetics is a natural, Australian made cosmetic brand with a social and ethically conscious. All products are made completely from 100% genuinely natural mineral ingredients and are chemical free. So not only good for you, but good for the environment.
Browsing through their website you might be wondering where is there red lipstick? The news is they don’t make one. We’ve enquired and found out that it was purely because Abbey Jade was not willing to add Carmine (an animal product) FD&C (chemicals).
Smooth Liquid Mineral Foundation is available in Vanilla Cream, Shell Cream, Light Beige, Medium Beige, Radiant Earth, Sienna Earth.
I have a medium to olive skin so I chose the 14.5 Medium Beige – Light to Medium with warm undertones.
The foundation is light, yet full coverage and the smooth texture applies amazingly well. I love full coverage foundation, but have been burned before with some other brand not surprisingly they were more expensive too.
The next test is how long does this last, Abbey Jade say that no retouch ups are needed. I made it through an 11 hour day without the need for a retouch up. So that’s good enough for me.
Overall, the foundation is light and full coverage yet flattering and smooth. An application is easy using a makeup brush or damp beauty blender. So far this foundation has replaced my 3 – 4 different brands of foundations that I would normally use. What still amazes me is that it’s natural and no animals harmed.
The pH seemed to suit my skin as I did not experience any irritation like I have with Nude by Nature. (Sorry but that’s the plain simple truth).
I’d recommend this mineral foundation to young and old, and quite possibly on my husband as he starts to age.
How to Use
Apply a small amount to the back of your hand or on a foundation palette. Using an Abbey Jade foundation brush for best results or your finger-tips, apply to face in sections with soft even strokes, blending as you go. Blend around hairline, neckline and nose area making sure the foundation looks natural and fresh. For best blending results use a blending sponge around these areas. The best indication that the foundation is the correct colour for you will be that very little blending will be required.
Only a small amount is needed, you can always add more for a fuller coverage if desired or to conceal problem areas.
