Honest Beauty Makeup Review

Last month when I was in California for Create & Cultivate DTLA I stopped by the Honest Beauty flagship store at the Grove and got an in depth look at all of their products. As I’m currently testing out a ton of different skincare brands I wanted to focus on the makeup side of things and see how it performs. Get ready for my honestly written Honest Beauty Makeup Review. See what I did there?! Okay, let’s get started.

The first product that called my name was the Everything Primer that gives you a luminous base. It has a slight tint to it that gives you the most stunning base. You can layer it under foundation but I love wearing it on it’s own and having that slight glow all over my face. It not only minimizes the appearance of pores but also softens out the skin and provides deep hydration with its hyaluronic acid. The peony root plumps the skin while the aloe vera conditions it – oh and have I mentioned that all of Honest Beauty’s products are plant based? You can imagine how amazing this bestseller smells… It’s truly one of my favorite primers I’ve ever tried.

Next I picked up a cream blush in Truly Thrilling which I’ve been wearing nonstop ever since I got it. I filmed a tutorial with it on how to apply cream blush (check it out here) and it’s soft pink color has become my go-to this Summer. It’s not too pink and provides me with a beautiful natural flush. This product has put me on the cream blush bandwagon as the formula is highly pigmented and has a solid staying power. What more can you ask for?

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now (thank you by the way!) you will know that my love for lip crayons can’t be denied. The store manager introduced me to the Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in the color Marsala Kiss and Oh.My.God. does it look amazing on me. I mean I’m not one to toot my own horn but once she put it on my lips I looked REAL GOOD. The color is a muted mauve – that lady knew the way to my heart. It feels super moisturizing on the lips without feeling runny, has a comforting sweet scent and is packed with jojoba oil and shea butter to treat the lips. I won’t be wearing it too much in the summer but come Fall this is going to be glued to my lips.

As a little gift with purchase they gave me a travel size of their Elevated Hydration Mist and I love that one too. It’s again filled with hyaluronic acid (my all time favorite ingredient), aloe vera and chamomile to hydrate the skin. Plus if you’ve seen my collection, one can never have too many face mists.

I’m really impressed with all of these items and it’s especially rewarding to know that they’re made cruelty free and with good ingredients. As a consumer who’s paying more attention to what’s in her beauty products I welcome Honest Beauty’s approach and commend them for doing an amazing job. Plus the packaging is really cute and that gets me every time :-)
