New Absolution concealers, mascara and eyeliner..

I was so excited when I saw that French organic beauty brand Absolution had added to their make-up line. I’m such a fan of their lipsticks – the original 6 matt shades are absolute (no pun intended) staples in my kit, and get used on so many people. The brand have teamed again with make-up artist Christophe Danchaud to extend the Sweet and Safe collection to include concealers, mascara and an eye liner…

These last couple of weeks I have been very fortunate to have been giving said products a try, and its safe to say I’m been liking them a lot..

Le Multi Correcteur is a corrective concealer to use on dark circles, redness, and blemishes but also to brighten the complexion. There are three concealer shades available – I know not enough for all skin tones, however there is a fourth apricot tone available which is a bit more universal. This correcting tone is great on dark circles; mix it into one of the concealers for lighter skin tones, or go straight in with it on darker skin tones to brighten under eyes and pigmentation too. An orange tone is essential for any professional kit and so good for personal ones too.

02 is my colour for blemishes etc although for the baggage under my eyes, I’ve been mixing in a bit of the peach and then adding a pop of 01 to really brighten.

I love the texture of these concealers, they are in a little tube so squeeze out as a lightweight cream that nourishes skin as well as concealing. I’ve tried applying with fingers and a brush and like both ways. They really do disappear into the skin – you can’t see them sitting or clinging onto the skin like you can some products, they become part of the skin and look so natural while still giving coverage. They cover well, and I’ve found you can build the coverage a bit too. You could use them as a foundation too, applying to even out skin tone just where needed. Here is my glamorous assistant demonstrating No3 for you!

Ingredients – aqua/ water, glycerin*, zinc oxide, dicaprylyl ether, polyglyceryl-2 dipolyhydroxystearate, dicaprylyl carbonate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, silica, polyglyceryl-3 diisostearate, cocoglycerides, hydrogenated castor oil, jojoba esters, oryza sativa starch/ oryza sativa (rice) starch*, centaurea cyanus flower water*, magnesium sulfate, simmondsia chinensis seed oil/ simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, helianthus annuus seed cera/ helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed wax, propanediol, pentylene glycol, aluminum hydroxide, coffea arabica seed oil/coffea arabica (coffee) seed oil*, sodium lauroyl glutamate, tocopherol, polyglycerin-3, acacia decurrens flower cera/ acacia decurrens flower wax, sodium phytate, lysine, honokiol, magnesium chloride, helianthus annuus seed oil/ helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, euphrasia officinalis extract, chlorella vulgaris extract, alcohol
may contain (+/-): ci 77891/ titanium dioxide, ci 77492/ iron oxides, ci 77491/iron oxides, ci 77499/ iron oxides

Organically grown ingredients ** natural constituents of essential oils 

The concealers are 99% natural and 20% organic and EcoCert certified. There is no mica which is so nice because often mica can add a sheen which isn’t always great when concealing blemishes etc.

The Mascara is the most thickening natural mascara I’ve tried. It does contain synthetic fibres which coat the lashes giving them helping a hand. Absolution explained that natural fibres are more often than not, incompatible with sensitive eyes. The brush is an hour glass shape, which also helps add thickness. I actually found it a bit bulky to start with, but on using it more, it grew on me.

It does add length as well but if you want defined, longer lashes, then I’d recommend combing through with a clean mascara wand after application to separate them a little bit. I’ve had a few mixed days on the durability – some days it has lasted really well, others it has smudged a bit. I am a sensitive eye rubber though which does give any mascara a run for its money! I’m liking it and wearing it a lot, would recommend it..

Ingredients – aqua/ water, cera alba/ beeswax*, copernicia cerifera, cera/ copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax*, centaurea cyanus flower water*, jojoba esters, polyglyceryl-6 distearate, propanediol, ricinus communis seed oil/ ricinus communis (castor) seed oil*, glyceryl stearate, helianthus annuus seed cera/ helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed wax, candelilla/jojoba/rice bran polyglyceryl-3 esters, cetearyl alcohol, sodium stearoyl lactylate, lauroyl lysine, benzyl alcohol, xanthan gum, crambe abyssinica seed oil, potassium sorbate, galactoarabinan, polyglyceryl-3 beeswax, cetyl alcohol, polyglycerin-3, acacia decurrens flower cera/ acacia decurrens flower wax, tocopherol, dehydroacetic acid, sodium hydroxide, helianthus annuus seed oil/ helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, sodium benzoate
may contain (+/-): ci 77499/ iron oxides 

* Organically grown ingredients ** natural constituents of essential oils 

The mascara is 98% natural, 22% organic and again Ecocert Certified.

I’m really impressed with the Liner. It gives an intense black straight away – often I find you have to layer it a lot to get a dense black line, however the colour pay off of this one is great. I really like the applicator as it is a nib rather than a brush and I find these easier to apply to myself. I found it has great durability along my actual lash line and lasts all day. My ticks/flicks do come off, but this always happens to me with natural and non natural liners. My eyes water and I rub, so not much stands a chance in that area..

Ingredients – centaurea cyanus flower water*, propanediol, galactoarabinan, aqua/ water, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, xanthan gum, glycerin, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate, lauryl glucoside, dehydroacetic acid, urtica dioica leaf extract/ urtica dioica (nettle) leaf extract, sodium hydroxide, sorbic acid
may contain (+/-): ci 77499/iron oxides, ci 77007/ultramarines

* Organically grown ingredients ** natural constituents of essential oils 

The liner is 97% natural and 68% organic.

I love the fact that all the products are sold in paper packaging. The actual product containers are plastic but recycled and/or recycled. All the inks used are plant based.

Have you tried any of these yet – what do you think?

    Hi, I’m looking for a green mascara! I quite like Organic Pharmacy…but ready to try something new.Not a fan of Kjaer Weiss mascara that a lot of people rave about as I want maximum effect 🙂 Bought a foundation from Asolution years ago and it dried up within 2 weeks and it was impossible to get the product out ..but maybe they have changed the formula & packaging now 🙂 Have a wonderful day!
