BIG Green Smile & Lavera

1 March 2013

Today I want to introduce you to two great new discoveries! A natural foundation and an online retailer!

Lately I have been straying away from powder foundations and opting towards liquid foundations a lot more, it think just for the quickness and ease of it. I guess i'm just a bit lazy these days when it come to my make up.

The thing is i never actually thought of buying a natural/organic liquid makeup, it just didn't seem to be something that had occurred to me. Strange really.
I did some research and came across some great looking foundations but was always put off buying online incase of a disaster colourwise (i have done this before and it was awful). Luckily for me the lovely Amy at Gossip PR introduced me to which is an amazing huge site for natural and organic products, it is literally an Aladdin's cave of goodness. You can find anything on there! For me the great perk was that they have a great section for make up and i was able to select a Lavera foundation from the site to try.

In literally two days the parcel was at my door. Talk about amazing delivery!

Lavera foundation is a beautifully cream gel like foundation that is light coverage but amazingly buildable, i use a 5p sized amount for a sheer light coverage and a second 5p pump for a thicker more flawless coverage. This is amazing, it blends really well and is so easy to apply. It smells great and last quite a long time. It gives me a lovely healthy colour and dewy glowy finish!
I do think the colours are possibly a bit dark, i used the lightest colour Porcelain 01 which for my skin tone was perfect, but on people who have more pale skin it would be too dark i think. The tones also lean a lot to the olive yellow warm hues so again this maybe one to research first if you have pinky/peachy cool undertones. Personally for someone with asian blood and quite tricky skintones to match, this is the perfect foundation.

Big Green Smile is a great retailer and this Lavera foundation was only £11.50, on other sites it's £12.90! So it's definitely got great prices, postage seemed reasonable too. I'm really glad that i got to make two great discoveries in one here, a great new foundation and a brilliant new online retailer to check out to. There is so much to explore on there, and their ranges are huge. What is also great is that they have a lot of reviews on the products, both good and bad so you really get to know as much as possible about your product before buying it, plus they have a full ingredients list and colour charts available, which may sounds simple but not all sites do, so i'm pretty happy!

Check out for anything green, natural and organic!

Happy Shopping!
