Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder Review

The Innisfree No Sebum line were the first of many of my favourite Innisfree products. The products from this line have been popular for so long and it is easy to see why! The No Sebum line contains a mineral primer, a mineral powder and a mineral pact. I did also purchase other products from the line, so make sure you check them out as well!
                -Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Primer (review here!)
                -Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact (review coming soon!)

This oil absorption powder creates soft and gorgeous skin that lass all day long. The powder has a double sebum control system helps to absorbs excessive sebum on skin. It contains Jeju natural mineral and mint ingredients to create healthy skin, control oil and maintain moisture of skin. It is completely paraben free, talc free, artificial pigment free, animal material free, mineral oil free and artificial scent free!
Innisfree conveniently provides us with a picture describing the multiple uses of the No Sebum Mineral Powder. 

In true Innisfree style, the No Sebum Mineral Powder comes in a nice a box made with recycled paper with soy ink print. The powder comes in a refreshing mint colour tub with twist lid. The powder comes with a little puff for application of the product. 

The Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder has very quickly become one of my absolute favourite Innisfree product. This is the perfect product for setting my makeup in the morning. The powder is lightweight and does not leave the skin looking cakey. It mattifies the skin and leaves it feeling incredibly fresh. The powder keeps oilier areas of my face completely shine free throughout the day and has the ability to extend the longevity of my makeup. This powder really is a life saver, especially on warm days when I am more prone to shine. It is also great to keep around with me during the day when I’m out and about for whenever I need any touch ups. Another thing is that the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder is rather inexpensive. I can definitely see myself repurchasing this product over and over again. I really don’t have any complaints about it!

Pros:
-lightweight
-does not appear cakey
-mattifies the skin
-long lasting sebum control
-helps to extend longevity of makeup
-inexpensive

Cons: NONE!

Overall Rating: 5/5

Hi! I want to set my liquid foundation with a powder but I’m confused as to which one I should use. I’ve seen setting powders, face powders, mineral powders and translucent powders… What’s the difference between them all? Thanks!

Creams, liquids, gels, stains, minerals, powders, pencils, lacquers, glosses, with so many different formulations of products on the market it can be confusing as to which one you should be using…

The Best Tools for Applying Foundation

Fingers

When it comes to the application of foundation - fingers are one of (if not) the best tools. (Clean) Fingers are great for applying foundation as the warmth helps to blend the product into the skin easier - resulting in a seamless finish. Smooth your liquid foundation over your skin using your fingertips (as you would with your moisturiser) for a natural, dewy finish.

Foundation Brush

A flat foundation brush is fantastic for applying liquid and cream foundation onto the skin and generally tends to give great coverage. Using a “painting” motion and short, light strokes will help give you a finish that looks like your skin, but so much better. The bonus? This brush can be used for just about any cream or liquid face product.

Try: Beau-Make by Abbamart Cream Base Brush

Foundation Sponge

If used right a foundation sponge can be fantastic for applying foundation onto the skin to give an airbrushed finish. Use a small amount of liquid or cream foundation on a large foundation sponge and use a “bouncing” motion on the skin, if you need more coverage than add another layer using the same technique.

Try: Beauty Blender Sponge

Kabuki Brush

If you’re a lover of mineral or powder foundations then this one is for you. A kabuki brush is ideal for “buffing” mineral foundations into the skin and the short handle allows you to get closer to the face, allowing for more control. If you’re not a lover of powder foundation brushes don’t write this brush off just yet; spritz it with a little hydrating mist and buff your liquid or cream foundation into the skin for a dewy finish.

Try: E.L.F Studio Kabuki Face Brush

Natural and non-toxic makeup ideas

(Spoiler alert: If you follow me on my Croatian blog, you probably saw this already. I’m translating some 2015 post here so please be patient for the new reviews.)

If you are a natural beauty enthusiast like me, you always try to incorporate natural tips and trick to make your beauty rituals as clean and body-friendly as possible. Now, it’s easy with skincare: most drugstores today sell a good range of organic or even natural products , but makeup it’s a lot harder. Most natural makeup I’ve seen can be only purchased via Facebook pages, Etsy or some indie websites. There’s a small chance you’ll find natural and non-toxic makeup products in local stores (mostly because they don’t contain any conservative ingredients, so they has extra short shelf life - under 6 months and are produced in small batches or custom made after ordering for individual clients and their needs.)  

So, the question is: how to find these products? My answer: make it! It doesn’t take much to make natural makeup and you probably have most of these ingredients in your kitchen already. Here are some of my suggestions:

Liquid/cream foundation with sunscreen: mix your mineral makeup foundation (in a powder form - the stronger the coverage, the better) with your go-to non-toxic sunscreen cream or lotion - I use Kiss my Face 3in1 SPF30 Sensitive side because the formula is gentle and I can even apply it around my eyes (if you use cream it’s going to be thick and you’ll use less product every time, but lotion will be easier to apply and less cakey). The amount can be customized to your needs: add more powder for more coverage and add more cream/lotion for moisturizing properties, natural coverage and better sun protection. I also advise you to make super small amounts of this products because it can get really dry in no time. It is kind of annoying, but it can turn into a no-fuss habit.

For a matte face/T-zone: use cornstarch! Cornstarch is a common ingredient in many commercial face powders (along with talc and silica, except cornstarch is less likely to clog your pores and cause acne). Simply dip your brush in a small amount of cornstarch (I keep mine in baby food containers or empty powder jars - recycling points! or even in a salt shaker so I can use it as dry shampoo). A dry shampoo made entirely out of cornstarch works best on bleached, blonde or silver hair. If you are a brunette or redhead you can add cinnamon, cocoa powder or activated charcoal for a color matching dry powder. Make sure it absorbs well and brush off any excess powder. Most local food stores sell cornstarch and it dirt cheap: few dollars for at least 200 grams, which can last you a whole year.

If you want to use a natural blush, try beet root powder or raspberry powder (although I think beet root powder is way cheaper). You can mix in different natural and edible ingredients with it to make custom shades, which can also be used and mineral eyeshadow or (mixed with a DIY lip balm with some shea butter and coconut oils) lipstick or lip gloss.

For bronzer: use cocoa powder and cinnamon along with cornstarch (you’ll save a lot of money on bronzers and dry shampoo with one DIY product). For matte black eyeshadow: use activated charcoal, but be careful if you have oily lids because it can smudge a lot and make a mess (the same goes with mixing charcoal with coconut oil to make a DIY eyeliner - tried it, smudged like hell).

If you add cocoa powder to shea butter and some other unrefined oils you can make an instant bronzing body lotion for summer or special occasions where you don’t want to or can’t tan outdoors or in a salon (which I don’t endorse, but some people like getting tanned).

For colorful eye makeup, mascaras, highlighters, concealers and opaque lipsticks: you CAN make these but the raw ingredients are often expensive and the recipes are quite tricky. Also, mascaras are super tricky to make because you’ll need a lot of testing to ensure you won’t wake up with a pink eye in the morning and they require a sterile environment for packaging which most of us don’t have in our homes. I advise you to buy from small indie companies that produce good quality, safe and affordable makeup, like the ones on Etsy. Ask your neighbors and friends is someone they know makes natural makeup, but if you can’t find any, check the links on my Cruelty-Free page (in the middle of the list, under “Mineral Makeup”). My favorites are: Everyday Minerals (great foundation formulas and shade selection + amazing brushes!), Concrete Minerals (awesome shade selection for both shimmer and matte shades + the best eye primer ever!) and of course - Meow Cosmetics (my absolute favorites when it comes to eye makeup - thousand of shades, effects, collections and styles. Their Egyptian Treasures eyeshadow collection is so perfect I almost cried when I got it - check this post for swatches.)

Can you explain to me the differences between powders: pressed, mineral, compact, loose etc. What's their use and with what type of brush you can apply each one with. I want to set my liquid foundation, but I don't know with what type of powder xo

CHARACTER STUDY: CARISA JANES

We get up close and personal with the founder of Hourglass Cosmetics.

Time is on Carisa Janes’ side. Having enjoyed ten years success since founding Hourglass Cosmetics in 2004, we can confidently say Janes knows a thing or two about building a coveted beauty brand. We caught up with the Venice Beach-based Janes to talk inspiration, beauty essentials, and what modern luxury means today.  KELLEY HOFFMAN

Do you have a first beauty memory?
Well, my grandmother loved makeup and everything beautiful. In her guest bedroom she had an old vanity set up, and inside of it, she had powders, brushes, and mirrors and all these beautiful little collectible things. I was really young, but I remember being so excited to get there, to get into those drawers, and just the smell of the powder and the beautiful intricate packaging—I loved that.

What led you to starting your own beauty company?
I was consulting in beauty brands for a long time, and I felt there was an opportunity to create something in the luxury category. I really believed that there were women out there that would appreciate gorgeous packaging with high-quality products that had innovative formulations. I wanted that beautiful feeling of all these luxury brands, but I wanted the product to be more modern.

How did you come up with the name for your brand?
I knew I didn’t want to name the brand after myself. I wanted it to have its own identity. I chose the name Hourglass because it was feminine, but strong. It was timeless and it had a sense of mystery to it. I just thought it fit.

Where do you find inspiration?
The idea of simplifying a product is inspiring. If there’s something you feel is missing, or something you would like to be more user-friendly—that’s inspiring. And I think a lot of it is just, looking at art; I live in a very creative place, I live in Venice Beach—very vibrant, a lot of creative energy, and I’m around a lot of creative people. And I think that that just innately makes you more creative when you’re exposed to it.

What do you find powerful about makeup?
Number one, a little makeup makes everyone look better, no matter how gorgeous you are. The most beautiful woman in the world, with makeup, looks better—that’s powerful. But then the other side of that is you can be creative, and that’s one of my favorite things about makeup—because we get to wear it. You know, one day you’re in a mood, you feel like wearing soft pink…and you feel like really feminine…you can create soft feminine makeup. Or you feel like you’re in a mood to feel edgy, strong, and you do a cat eye, or line the inner rim of your eyes—it just creates a whole different personality.

Your Ambient franchise, your mineral primer, and your Icon lipstick all have a devoted following. What do you personally love about these products?
I read a lot of reviews about the Ambient Lighting Powder, and my favorite reviews are the ones that say, “It’s really hard to put your finger on it, but you don’t really know that it’s doing anything. You don’t see a difference, but then suddenly you do.” And it’s really true—it’s like you look in the mirror and you’re like, “Did anything just happen?” With this, it’s completely seamless—as well as the Ambient Lighting Blush, so especially when you use those two together, you won’t have the striping you do with the traditional blush. You’re not going to have a line because the technology of the particles is so advanced, they’re transparent particles instead of pigment particles, which creates a very sheer finish. 

The Veil Mineral Primer is unlike any other primer on the market. It has completely weightless texture, which I think makes it very unique, yet you get really great results. So, the instant you apply it—most primers you apply you don’t see a difference—you do see a difference; it eliminates the redness from your skin, it tightens your pores, and then the durability of what you put over it is extended. So whatever foundation you use, or powder, it’s like your makeup insurance. It keeps your makeup looking great all day.

For the Icon collection, I think if you wear red lipstick, it has to be the right red. And I think a lot of reds are too orange or too pink, and I think it’s that perfect combination of blue-red that is so hard to find, that’s rich and has a great texture yet high pigment payoff—and yet the right color of red. And I think that’s just—that franchise is the perfect red lip—it’s the iconic red lip.
