This morning I tried my Jane Iredale Starter Kit and absolutely loved it for many different reasons.
I ordered the make-up on Wednesday morning and received it on Thursday afternoon. This speedy service was very satisfying and I didn’t have to pay extra for it.
When I opened it, the make-up kit was wrapped in beautiful tissue paper with a dried sprig of lavendar resting on it. I was greeted with a delightful scent while unraveling my new treat.
This is what it looks like when you unravel the paper:
So, it’s safe to say that they package it beautifully. The ONLY thing I didn’t like about the packaging was that nothing was clearly labelled. After searching a bit, I did find a picture diagram on the bottom of the box.
The before and after was quite impressive – the pictures I took, not so much. The make-up has a very pleasant, natural odor and went on very smooth and quickly. I have a bit of rosacea around my nose and dark circles around my eyes so was VERY impressed when it covered them completely. The tinted moisturizor with SPF spread easily and a little went a long way. The concealor covered everything I wanted it to, and lasted all day! I mixed the two foundations (I tip I found on youtube) to help them last longer and it provided an even, natural looking coverage. I found the blush to go on heavy and it’s a bit too dark for my liking, but easily managed to get the right shade by just going over top of it with more foundation. The lipstick was soft, smooth and a natural colour. My lips didn’t dry out, flake or crease when using this product.
This is everything that comes in the kit, except for the lipstick: that is in my son’s room and he is sleeping. This is before I add my non-Jane Iredale make-up (which will soon be non-existant thanks to my new found products).
I liked the concealor and foundation brush, but I prefer a bigger brush (in general) for my blush.
In no way am I a proffesional with make-up/beauty, but as a busy mom who doesn’t like to leave the house without some make-up, Jane Iredale provided what I was looking for. It’s quick, easy and provides a natural look with safe, natural ingredients. The price for all of this came out to $95, which I thought was very decent for everything I received.
I’ll see how long the products lasts with daily use and provide updates on their other products as I try them.
