Fall is here and that means it’s time to change bright colours for darker ones. My skin is sensitive and whenever it’s getting colder I do have to pay attention to the products I’m using for my skincare routine. I recently discovered Les Couleurs de Noir, a Belgian makeup brand, which is quite different from other brands. Today I’ll tell you all about it.
Gaëlle Verspeelt and Dries Van de Walle founded Les Couleurs de Noir in 2010 with a purpose, offering a total range of hypoallergenic skin care products specially developed for women with a sensitive skin. Every woman deserves to wear makeup and to feel beautiful. Some people are allergic to certain ingredients and that’s why all the products are being developed based on a black list. This list includes the most common ingredients in cosmetics which cause allergic reactions. The entire range of products is tested by allergy sufferers.
I was allowed to test some products and wrote an entire review for you, I’m happy to share my thoughts on this brand.
Soft Fusion Lip Balm
This is the product I was most curious about. As a marketing student I could talk hours about the packaging of a product and well, they really did a good job on that one. Very simple yet stylish – less is more. I never leave my house without some red lipstick on and I was so happy that I received this gorgeous red lip balm. When I first applied it I had to get used to the feeling as it feels very smooth and soft on my lips. It’s perfect for colder days, it protects and nourishes your lips, it contains ingredients such as Jojoba oil and shea butter.
The colour is transparent, I usually prefer a lipstick which provides full coverage so I really have to apply a lot to have full coverage. However I totally recommend this one, it’s perfect for Winter and it feels so soft and is extremely comfortable to wear. You can get this lip balm for €14,90 and it’s available at pharmacies.
Full Gloss Lip Maximizer
I’ve never used a lip maximizer so I didn’t know what to expect. According to the description on the website, the Lip Maximizer moisturizes lips and provides instant and long-lasting volume, thanks to MAXI-LIPTM, this is a natural peptide. The result is a glossy, non-sticky and light effect which makes the lips fuller. This maximizer doesn’t contain parabens, perfume, paraffins and mineral oils.
Apparently one of the ingredients is mint and I immediately experienced a ‘fresh feeling’. This was a pleasant feeling and in contrast to normal lipp gloss, this one isn’t sticky at all. I don’t like a sticky feeling. If my lips are more voluminous? I can’t tell. But I can tell you this, I’m in love with this one. You can get this Lip Maximizer for the price of €17,30.
Soft Touch Bronzing Powder
Soft Touch Eyeshadow Quattro
One of the products I always take with me in my bag is definitely a decent bronzer. The perfect bronzer has a very soft and subtle texture as my cheeks already have a natural red glow. Last but not least I did receive this eye shadow palette. There are 2 types of eye shadow palettes, ‘cold’ and ‘warm’. I received the one with darker colours which is of course perfect for Fall. The bronzer and eye shadow go well together.
