|Nude by Nature make up - review by Green Life In Dublin|
Today I am coming at you with another brand review, and what's more exciting, these products are all available in Ireland! Yay or what?
But let me start from the beginning, and I can't wait to tell you all about these products, show you the swatches and all! Love reviewing clean make up goodies, and I hope you will find it helpful and interesting? The brand in question is Nude by Nature, Australia's nr1 mineral make up brand! I had my eyes on the brand for ages, their products seem so beautiful, and let me tell you, they didn't disappoint! One item in particular impressed me very much, and I will save that to the last.
Coral was the love at a first swipe, the colour is my new fave! Whenever I am doing my make up, this is what my hand always reaches first, and I have to remind myself to use other products. So happy to have this shadow in my life, even if I use this shadow alone on the lids, the look always comes pulled together and it looks like I made a ton of effort, when in fact I didn't. And I am a big fan of that. It is really smooth and pigmented, and it lasts all day, and I don't use a primer! It also does not crease, which is fabulous, I am definitely a fan of this product, you just got to love a fact that I can put it in the morning and can basically forget about it for the whole day and it will still look fine at the end of the day. Don't we all want that? This is so much better than my Lily Lolo and some other shadows I own, and I definitely will be switching to those from now on, and it makes me want to check other colours too.Single shadows come with a mirror too, which is always a bonus. See it swatched below.
Rose trio is in a sleek compact, with a cruelty free brush and as much as I like the fact that you can get away with only this if you are a minimalist, but I also should mention the fact that some shadows are more pigmented than others. Nonetheless, you can create an array of fabulous looks with them. My favourite from the lot is the darkest shade, which I often use on the outer corner of my lid when using Coral - the look is suitable to both day and night, and you can always go in with more darker shades if you want. I am not a make up pro, far from it, but these shadows are so easy to work with, they practically blend themselves and it makes me look like I know what I am doing :)
You can also see Coral at the end of this blog post - on my eyes coupled with Nude by Nature mascara. I should also say that you get three 2grams shadows in the trio, but the single shadow pots house 3 grams of product. As always I will include the ingredients list, so you can peruse if you are comfortable or not using these. No scores on any products in EWG, but I checked a couple of ingredients separately (POLYMETHYLSILSESQUIOXANE,DIISOSTEARYL MALATE) and they came out as non toxic, getting a score of 1 (out of 10). You have 24 months to finish up the product, which is awesome. Single shadows retail for 16€ and the trio is 28€ which is really not bad.

Well, I have to admit this looked scary at first, especially having in mind that I am at all times palest, but I really warmed up to it - a highlight stick with active natural ingredients, including the native Australian Kakadu Plum, known for its abundant Vitamin C content, Quandong and Desert Lime to help provide antioxidant defense? Yes please! True to my style I tested it in a multiple ways, from using it as a cream eyeshadow, to using it as a bronzer. And I like it a lot. Come summer and it might be as well my favourite product. Tube packaging is really sleek and portable. I am a (new) fan. The price of this is 20€ and you get a whooping 10grams or 0.35oz of product.

|Nude By Nature Mascara - fast becoming my favorite! Does not flake!|
Allure Defining Mascara
I saved the best for the last! After making the hearbreaking decision to not repurchase my nr1 natural mascara (see my reasons here) I thought I will will be years since I will discover my next perfect mascara that does not smudge or flake (my biggest pet peeves) since I tested sooo many mascaras prior to finding my former favourite. But I was saved from months and years of disappointments, because this mascara is like a God sent! Ingredients are not as clean as 100%Pure, but I am ok with that, because a) this mascara is available in Ireland and I can get it sans international shipping and dreaded custom fees,and b) this mascara truly does not flake nor smudge. I am walking a lot, and I am up agaist elements daily (famous Irish rains and #stormdoris, anyone?) and this mascara held up perfectly, I never had it run my cheeks, no flaking ever, and I am three weeks into testing this. I will update this post if it changes for the worse, but I have high hopes for it, and so far so good! It retails for 20€ aand you get standard three months to finish it after opening. Note - this is not a vegan mascara. I should also state that it does not give me that amazing false lashes effect I used to get from my former mascara, it is more like "natural" look mascara, but I am ok with that too. If I want to, I can always add drama with the lash fibers or purchase lash conditioner, but for everyday, it is fine. See it below together with Coral shadow I love so much. Do you like the look?

This review post is a collaboration between myself and Debenhams Ireland and that is exactly where you can get Nude by Nature products, online only though. I am so happy Ireland has started embracing natural beauty and we can finally get it in the big department stores. Well done Debenhams, I will be back for more! I am eyeing up their blush, foundation, concealer and a couple of brushes, these products have been calling my name recently.
Have you tried this brand and what are your favourite products? Please share with me, I would really love to know!
Lots of Love,
