Inika Day-to-Night Palette + New Mascara Fave
Oh boy, do I have a new line for you. Have you heard of INIKA Organic?
INIKA was launched in 2006 with a singular mission: to create beautiful makeup without questionable ingredients. Based out of Melbourne, Australia, INIKA products are 100% natural and over two-thirds of the range is Certified Organic. Made from the finest botanicals and minerals – chosen for quality, tested for purity and checked for safety. All products are cruelty-free, toxin-free, vegan and environmentally friendly. INIKA’s philosophy is to create beautiful, healthy, high performing makeup that gives you a flawless look. And yeah, I think they can confidently stand by that claim!
So, my initial interest in INIKA sparked when my girl Lisa told me their BB Cream and mascara were tops in her book. Now, I trust Lisa’s opinions something fierce, so I set out to try some for myself.
The funny thing is that they have been out of my shade of the BB Cream, so I haven’t tried it yet! However, that didn’t stop me from trying some other products from the line, namely the Day-to-Night Eye Palette, the Baked Mineral Bronzer, and the Long Lash Mascara.
Now, you know I love my Per-fekt Lash Perfection Gel (just search the name in my sidebar and you’ll see…), HOWEVER, there has been an issue with the product being out of stock most places. Now, the Per-fekt team has assured me that the mascara is not being discontinued, but I don’t know exactly what’s up. And hey, I’m always game to try a new mascara.
HOLY EYELASHES you guys. This mascara is insane! Length, volume, no smudging, no flaking. It is a dream and I might be breaking up with Per-fekt. Take a look for yourself.
Yeah. That’s ONE COAT. And I’ve been using it for about a week now and no weird issues have popped up. Obsessed is an understatement.
But that’s not all. Have you seen this limited edition Day-to-Night Eye Palette, pictured above? Bronze, chocolate browns, warm pinks and plums, oh my. Now, I’m a neutral/cool-toned gal, and these colors are not what I usually go for, but they actually work on me, so both warm and cool-toned types would love this one.
Coupled with the mascara and the Baked Mineral Bronzer in Sunkissed, I was digging on this look. (The palette comes with this awesome booklet with many different looks to achieve with the shades – this one was the sunset smoky eye.) Also, the Sunkissed bronzer is very subtle with no sheen or sparkle, and I would imagine would work on many skin tones, including very fair.
The lip color is On Pointe lip stain by Au Naturale Cosmetics, which I will be posting some of my favorites by Au Naturale very soon! Oh, and also, since I didn’t have the BB Cream to try, I used the Vapour Luminous Foundation Stick in 115, which is catapulting to the top of my list lately. (Don’t you love when you find a foundation that matches your skin tone exactly? AND IS IN STICK FORM? #praisebe)
All in all, I really love all three of these products, but man, the mascara is beyond. For real. Do yourself a favor and give yourself a holiday gift of the mascara and the palette and have fun creating all sorts of looks!
