Tested: Beautycounter Powder Blush Duo in Flamingo/Apricot & Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Peony

Today I'm excited to share with you Beautycounter's most popular Powder Blush Duo in Flamingo/Apricot and their Lip Gloss in Peony. This favorite pair of beauty tools makes me feel extra "pretty in pink" all year long and I hope it will do the same for you!

Beautycounter Powder Blush Duo in Flamingo/Apricot

"Designed to emulate naturally flushed cheeks, our Blush Duos deliver the perfect amount of healthy-looking, luminous color. These satiny powders contain Porcelain Flower Extract (a Thai bloom known for its antioxidant benefits) to help moisturize the skin, blending seamlessly. Two complementary shades—one slightly deeper than the other—can be worn alone, layered, or even mixed together for a third shade option."

My Experience: It's rare to find a long-lasting pressed powder blush in the clean makeup world, so I was excited to have come upon this high-performing cheek beautifier! With its richness in color, easy application, and of course, its eco-friendly design, it was a no-brainer to add Beautycounter's Blush Duo to my entourage of clean beauty products. First impression? Don't let the bright shade of Flamingo scare you away. The pink adds a balanced glow of warmth and life to my cheeks without looking clownish. I like this blush's potential for subtlety as it can be applied in feather-light layers, but also how the palatte is easily buildable on both cream and powder foundations for a more radiant look! With this blush duo, I especially enjoy the ability to either apply Flamingo, Apricot, or a blend to match my daily mood and lip color. I've been reaching for this pretty blush every morning, and at the end of each day am pleasantly surprised at how my cheeks retain their natural rosy look.

Beautycounter Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Peony

"Infinitely wearable color. Enviably lustrous shine. One swipe of this moisturizing gloss saturates lips in beautifully sheer color and high-impact shine. Infused with a delectable natural vanilla flavor and featuring a unique teardrop applicator, this formula goes on smoothly with no stickiness."

My Experience: I've tried a handful of non-toxic, good-for-your-body lip glosses this past year and this particular tube from Beautycounter has not left my purse since it met my lips. First of all, the flavor of this lip gloss is subtly sweet. It gives a hint of vanilla without the nauseating sweetness of certain other lip glosses. A word of advice: the "teardrop applicator" picks up quite a bit of product, so swipe most of it back into the tube before putting it on your lips. A little goes a long way. The gloss feels moisturizing, glides on smooth, and its consistency is not heavy or sticky. The color Peony gives my lips a rosy, natural sheen of pink - great for everyday use and also pretty to pair with my favorite lipstick for special occasions. A bit of gloss atop a pretty lip shade = instantly healthy-looking, plump, kissable lips. It's pure magic!
