There’s no better time to go herbal because the ‘go-organic’ clarion call is louder than ever! It’s been a while that Westerners have been going gaga over skincare treasure troves from nature’s bounty; Turmeric for acne, Sandalwood to soothe, Aloe Vera to refresh, Lemon to brighten…But as far as we’re concerned these so called ‘new found’ ingredients have existed for decades in grandma’s cabinet. Today we’re raising the beauty bar with au-naturel beauty essentials. From strawberry-infused balms to water-based mascara’s, these organic cosmetics are trend-setting finds that deserve first pick in every vanity!
Well, hello pretty eyes! A bold release that packs a punch in just one swipe, Nykaa’s Black Magic Eyeliner is all you need to get your best eyes on. What’s great about this product is its melt, crack and run resistant properties. This refined liner glides perfectly across the lash line for a gorgeous fluid application, leaving you looking super sensational!
If you’re on the lookout for a lighter cream-based foundation, this multi-tasker is a must-have. Enriched with Almond & Magnolia, this BB Cream provides UBA/UVB protection, conceals blemishes, hides fine lines, and as cherry-topping even delays visible signs of aging!
In hot weather like ours, sometime ditching heavy makeup is the best way to be! On days, you feel like going bare, this tinted sunscreen should be your go-to. Enriched with Red Grape extracts it not only offers lightweight coverage but the water-based formula nourishes, protects and hydrates too.
Stay on fleek with this killer-curved liner that offers precise detailing due to a distinct shape. Whether you’re going with a classic cat eye or double-dare ended wings, this buttery soft texture glides on the waterline effortlessly.
If there’s one thing that doe eyed beauties love, it’s kajal. This style-staple with a mix of Liquorice and Camphor is a great pick to complement your eyes, day or night. Use it as a stand-alone for intense, dark waterlines or with mascara for voluminous fringe benefits.
Another herbal swop is natural mascara from the house of Shahnaz. This water-based formula boasts of a built-in moisturizing effect with Neem that dries within no time and is smudge-proof too!
Nothing beats raw honey when it comes to its moisturizing capability. Infused with Strawberry extract, Almond Oil and Vitamin E, this compact see-though jar offers a delightful hint of colour with long-lasting pucker-hydration.
If intense lip colour made from pure ingredients don’t sound appealing enough, this tinted lip gloss’ oh-so-smooth application, enhanced with Jojoba and Aloe Vera are bound to get you hooked. Available from neutral nudes to fuchsia pinks, the range has it all.
With lip-lovin’ ingredients like Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, this collection of creamy lipsticks is free-from animal-based ingredients and harmful preservatives. Will you ever find a better vegan option?
