Have you heard of Beautycounter? It’s a network based cosmetic and skin care company that is on a mission to provide the highest quality products without harmful chemicals. I recently discovered Beautycounter from a friend, Ellie Brown, who is a consultant, and coming from her, the recommendation was taken VERY seriously because she’s really awesome! You may recognize her from an appearance on Shark Tank where she captured the hearts of pretty much EVERYONE across America, including mine! It’s so great to have a little peek inside her latest venture, Beautycounter.
I’ve partnered with Ellie, an independent consultant for Beautycounter to tell you about Beautycounter and share some of our favorite products! I received the following product samples complimentary to facilitate my review.
As many of you know, I LOVE trying new makeup and beauty products so this was right up my alley! Ellie sent me a full size Lengthening mascara along with several fun samples of other products.
I was very honest and had to warn her that I am picky about mascara and didn’t want anything clumpy. She assured me I would LOVE this one, and here are my findings:
Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara:
The lengthening mascara comes in a long, slender tube. The wand has a long handle on it and the first thing I noticed was how lightweight it is! Most of my other mascaras are quite heavy, so I was able to apply it very easily!
Ellie was right, it wasn’t clumpy at all. Quite the opposite! It’s nice to have a mascara that feels light and airy and at the end of the night doesn’t weigh down my lashes. I love dark, long lashes so I applied several layers. I really like how well it works on my lower lashes!
Here are some photos so you can check out Before & After:
The finished look that also includes the samples of Cream Blush in “Hibiscus” and Lip sheer in “Scarlet:”
I’ve never used a cream blush before, so it was really interesting to try. I applied it with my fingers and I think if I had a brush it would have gone a bit more smoothly, but overall, I think it worked really well! As far as the mascara, I was really happy with the results. I feel that my lashes definitely look longer but still natural and they feel great all day, which is a plus for me. Some of my favorite mascaras have been known to look great but caused my eyes to feel irritated after awhile. I hate having to choose and with Beautycounter, I don’t have to!
Beautycounter Purifying Charcoal Mask:
Ok, so I LOVE masks! It’s one of my favorite ways to relax. To be completely honest, I don’t always remember to wash my makeup off every night before bed, so sometimes a mask is absolutely necessary to clear out my skin and regenerate. As soon as Ellie told me about this charcoal mask, I HAD to try it! I am a HUGE fan of charcoal products and this mask certainly did not disappoint! It was AMAZING!
When I apply a face mask, I really feel like the thicker the better and I like really good coverage. What’s great about the dark colored charcoal mask it I can definitely see where to apply more and any spots I missed when washing it off. It was REALLY quick drying which was amazing. I often have to leave a mask on longer than they recommend to feel like it’s “doing it’s job.” But not with this one! Beautycounter recommends to keep the purifying charcoal mask on for 10 minutes and after that it was ready to come off again. It came off just as easily as it went on. It really did feel quite purifying and I will have to add this to my collection ASAP! I definitely recommend it!
It’s almost Halloween, so here’s a scary picture of me with my mask on and no makeup. Enjoy! (But don’t get scared away, I have some more fun stuff coming below!)
This was literally like 2 minutes after I applied the mask. You can see how quickly it dries! I love that because I don’t have to spend half an hour with it. The Purifying Charcoal Mask has such a nice texture to it and very light frangrance. (It’s fragrance-free but I detected a slight Peppermint scent which was actually pleasant. And then I realized why- peppermint oil is one of the ingredients!)
More About BeautyCounter:
For those of you who aren’t yet familiar with all that Beautycounter has to offer, I’m going to turn this part over to Ellie so she can tell you all about it and I’ve also included some of my favorite Interview questions so you can get to know her a little bit too. After all, you’re going to need a consultant! And I don’t care where you live, Ellie is SUCH a sweetheart, and she should definitely be your consultant because you’ll be a very happy customer with her! (Did I mention she sent a birthday card to my Nana just because a few years ago? So sweet!)
