In this post I’m going to throw out of my green make-up bag a great novelty that I’d especially highlight for make-up artists use as well. For all of you who don’t know Neve cosmetics yet: this is a young Italian brand with vegan and mineral make-up and who has also created the amazing palettes with refill eyeshadows. A loud applause for Neve!
Neve cosmetics flat perfection foundation is a great novelty, that can be compared with Mac mineralize skinfinish natural for instance. But the better news is that this foundation is so much cleaner in ingredients than the previously mentioned one.
It comes in a nice package with a fresh and innovative design (the surface of the cover is somehow warped which reminds me of an almost natural stone). Inside the package there is a mirror and the powder is pressed which is a big hurraw! for make-up artists (=handy). This powder is meant to be used instead of any foundation and it gives a light to medium coverage with a nice natural satin finish. It does not look cakey at all which I really like! It’s simply great for those natural looks when the skin is already in good conditions and you need just a sweep of color to enhance the skin tone. It’s also a perfect solution for upcoming hot summer days when you don’t like to wear much make-up. Flat perfection foundation comes in 8 shades that you can check on my photo below.
The selection of colors is very good, they are not too yellow nor too rosy. They have designed just one color that is called Light Rose and it’s meant for light skin with a touch of cool/blue undertones.
I’d just love a little bit more of product inside. In general, you can apply it with a flat or kabuki brush with circular motions on skin that you have prepared before with a good moisturizer adapted for your skin type. The foundation lasts depending on your skin type – on dry skin as mine is there are no problems, but on combination and oily skin touch-ups are needed after a few hours.
The only thing you might not like is the talc inside, but as I said the most applaudable fact is that there are brands out there who are working on innovation and where even professionals can choose the greener version of products for their make-up kits.
The product does not contain any parabens, silicones, parraffinum products and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and is not tested on animals!
Among tons of other interesting products check also Neve cosmetics accessories like this handy plastic bag on the top picture where you can store your make-up and close with a zip.
