ILIA Luxury Clean Beauty

ILIA Beauty takes an ethical-sustainable approach to cosmetics. They are genuinely dedicated to making the purest products possible. Each product is formulated with certified organic bio-active botanicals (up to 85%) that aim to nourish and rejuvenate your skin. Their values even carry over into the packaging.  All cream lip products are housed in a recycled aluminum case that is both eco-friendly and chic... right up my alley.

There are many great products from this line, but I wanted to highlight a few that I have recently tried.

HELLLOOOO, skincare and makeup combined! This is absolutely genius. This provides buildable medium coverage and nourishes the skin simultaneously. Aloe leaf, rose hip, jojoba and marula oils aim to soothe irritations, tame redness, and plump fine lines. I think this foundation would be perfect for my girls with dry skin (I have combination skin) or for those not looking for a full coverage foundation. The formula is very thin and light. I like this foundation for more low key days. It matches my skin color pretty well, but it is darker than my actual skin. It looks nice, but I would not say it's a "perfect" match. All in all, I would definitely recommend this product.

Love, love, loveee these lip products. These colors are super pigmented and nourish my lips perfectly. I highly recommend you guys purchase one (at least) of these lip crayons. My favorite colors are "Walk This Way" (warm neutral nude) and "Transmission" (deep brick brown). I am also happy to report that these products do stand the test of time. There will be no need to constantly reapply. I really hope they continue to expand their color collection because I'm hooked. 

Finishing Powder Brush

Made with high-grade, synthetic Taklon, an easy-to-clean, cruelty-free material.

I WANT ALL OF THEIR BRUSHES. The quality is unbeatable. I plan on purchasing their brush set because I am that impressed with this brush. It is sturdy and soft at the same time. The first time I felt this brush, I could tell it would last a long time.

I love setting my makeup with this powder. It's lightweight and helps reduce shine. Reducing shine is perhaps my biggest mission in life. My T-zone becomes oily half way through the day and I hate it. This powder helps minimize that midday oil attack.
