Quick Honest Beauty Review
In my experience over the past year, I have found that Honest Beauty is probably a high performance product for people who have few imperfections or people who are great at applying makeup and have the right tools.
What I got from Honest Beauty:
– Everything Cream Foundation (Snow)
– Concealer Duo (Vanishing Vanilla)
– Everything Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free (Alabaster)
What to know about me: I’m very pale with cool undertones. I’ve got annoying hormonal acne and dry/combo skin. I like my makeup easy-peasy.
What I use: Everything Tinted Moisturizer – about 4 times/wk, Everything Cream Foundation – rarely, as stage makeup. (I like to act dramatically upon theatre stages, especially those pronounced “thee-ah-tehr.”)
What I liked: Everything Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free (Alabaster) – Medium-ish (almost full) coverage. SPF works. Doesn’t break me out. Now that I finally figured out how to apply it the right way for my skin, I use it all the time, but only because I spent money on it. I’m still not in love with it. I don’t like the finish.
What I didn’t like: Everything Cream Foundation – clings to my dry patches like a bitch, feels a bit thick. Works great as stage makeup, because I don’t care what it looks like close up. Can’t for the life of me figure out how to get it to work for an everyday look.
What I would buy again: Nothing. Oh, Honest Beauty, I was too desperate wanted to love thee. The purchase wasn’t a total waste, but it’s not the best line for my problem skin, and it’s not affordable enough for me if I only want one product. (You can buy three things as a bundle and save money. But ugh, it’s a subscription. Watch out if you sign up. Make sure you cancel it if you only want to buy it once.)
Bottom line: Pretty good stuff that might work for other people. Affordable if you’re interested in bundling multiple products (but don’t forget to call and unsubscribe, which is a pain). Probably great for people with smooth skin with few imperfections. Honestly, not the absolute purest ingredients but much cleaner than a lot of other makeup. Not going to repurchase.
Guilt Level: Medium to high. I haven’t researched every ingredient. So much plastic in the packaging.
