In The Spotlight ~ Lavera // Make-up


A new type of post for me. I thought I would do a little bit of a focused post on a brand that I'm really loving using with a wide range of products. Today I'm focussing on Lavera and in particular, their make-up range. Some products are old favourites and some are new discoveries!


The first ever Lavera make-up product I tried was the Natural Liquid Foundation which I have reviewed before. I love this foundation, even with the formula changes it's been through, it's lightweight, blends really well and covers with medium but very build able coverage. The shade ranges are also pretty good as well. I managed to find my shade on the first try, but they have had a shade change up so i'm still yet to discover if I'm the same one I used to be.
The reason it's taken a while to buy another of these is because I got lured into another Lavera foundation, the Natural Mousse Make-up foundation. I have to admit, I was sucked into trying this because it brings back warm fond memories of using that Dream Matt Mousse foundation that everyone and their mother used to use back in the day when I was a wee lass of 15! 

Initially this foundation threw me, I thought it would be a very airy mousse in texture but as you can see from the pot it is actually incredibly smooth and creamy, it glides on like silk! Due to that I thought it would give a dewy finish but it gives a matt finish. But once I got the hang of it, I love it. As I said it glides on amazingly and blends like a dream, it's streak free and super light on the skin, the coverage is really good too. Staying power is good, but does require touching up if it's hot and you get a bit sweaty!

Stepping away from foundation are some new discoveries for me. I was offered the chance to try a few colours of the Lavera Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadow* these are Matt'n Copper 09 (matt brown) and Shiny Taupe 04 (shimmer grey toned bronze) and I have to say first that they smell so good, which is weird because they are eyeshadows but I love it. The formula of these is very smooth and they are super easy to blend. The colour payoff isn't the strongest but they are really buildable and stay true to the colour they appear in the packaging.

Finally, the biggest surprise for me was trying the Lavera Beautiful Lips Lipstick*, this is Maroon Kiss 09. I've really been getting into lipsticks lately but this for me looked a little too brown but I thought I would give it a go and now it is an everyday staple and it's firmly become my 'handbag lipstick', it goes everywhere with me. Maroon Kiss 09 is for me the perfect 'my lips but better' colour, the berry tones really pop on application. The formula is ridiculously creamy and moisturising and doesn't dry out your lips at all. Due to the creaminess it doesn't have great staying power but for the pigmentation and hydration I don't mind reapplying!

  4. Brilliant. I have just recently bought the Lavera liquid foundation. I love it, although it is slightly too dark for me and it was their lightest in the range. I am trying to think of a way to lighten it slightly naturally. It smells absolutely beautiful though. It is a real privelage putting it on my face xx
