Whenever I scout for cosmetics, I make sure that it does more than just one function. It could be multipurpose or it could have skincare benefits. Today I’ll be sharing with you a brand that has been low-key for a long time. A brand that delivers makeup with skincare benefits. Along with my personal favorites.
I knew Ellana Mineral Cosmetics back in my college years. I’m now 30 FYI, owned by beauty maven Theresa Carbonel. She started producing handmade mineral makeup when it was the current trend. I was instantly a fan! Today, Ellana Mineral Cosmetics produces not just mineral powders, but cheek tints, lip tints, and even brush cleaners! Take a look at my handpicks below.
Makeup with Skincare Benefits – Ellana Mineral Cosmetics
Magnetic Palette and Multipurpose Powders
Their multipurpose powders can be used as eyeshadow, blush or highlighter. It can be easily encased in one of their magnetic palettes. These are so nice to own because of how economical it is. Once you finish a powder, you can easily replace it with a new one and and save the environment in the long run.
Loose Mineral Foundation and Concealer
With mineral powders, a little goes a long way because it is pure pigment. Ellana Mineral’s Loose Powder Foundation & Concealer is made from Zinc Oxide and Kaolin. Those two components not only acts as makeup but also helps minimize redness and improve skin texture. It has additional vitamins E and C to brighten up our complexion too!
Makeup Brush Cleaner
This is the first time I’ve used a brush cleaner because everything I tried smells chemical and sticky when it dries. Ellana’s brush cleaner smells like refreshing cucumber melon and has natural tea tree extract to instantly disinfect brushes.
Blur Makeup Primer
The Blur Makeup Primer is perfect for those who have oily skin and enlarge pores. It dries powdery matte and acts as the perfect base for foundation. It helps keep your makeup stay in place the whole day. Unlike other primers, this feels barely there!
Ellana Mineral Liquid Lipstick
These mineral lipsticks are super pigmented! The names are quite nice too coming from the bible verse about L-O-V-E. One thing to watch out for is that it’s fast drying so you need to blend and apply fast or else it will look uneven.
Ellana Mineral Lip and Cheek Tint
This came in many forms and the finally it came in a handy tube in 2 shades. One deep rose for morenas and one bright red for mestizas. The gel lip and cheek tint is never sticky and easy to blend. Morenas wil love this so so much! I gave the deep red for my morena friend and it blended perfectly for her skin tone. It looked natural. It didn’t look “red” to her but instead mimicked her natural flush.
Strawberry Lip Scrub
A lip scrub is a must when using those liquid matte lipsticks, or any lipstick in general. It helps the lipstick go on smoother, and your lips softer. Your lips will thank you with this one. Oh, FYI, it tastes good too huhuhu. I couldn’t help but lick my lips because it tasted like strawberry sugar.
That’s it pansit! I hope you enjoyed reading my post. You can find ellanaminerals on their instagram and facebook. They also sell it in Glamour Box Ph
