Let me start with the obvious – the fact that Bodyography is 100% cruelty-free, vegan, and gluten free would put the brand right at the top of the list. But the fact is that isn’t always enough. The cosmetics have to live up to my expectations and I’ve found that Bodyography does just that.
When I received three of their Glitter Pigments I was wondering whether I’d want to use them or not. I’m not a glitter gal but I appreciate beautiful colors. I just don’t like the fallout from pigments now that I’m over the hill. To my surprise Bodyography’s Glitter Pigments are very different from the rest. These pigments, there are 16 shades, are a different technology.samples, affliate links
No loose pigment flying around, instead these are compressed so they feel like a cushion in the pot. I dropped one and there was no mess anywhere. That’s when I knew that they were unique. The colors are bright, beautiful and glittery. The texture is silky and they adhere well to my eyes even without a primer.
I have these in Sparkler (rose/peach gold), Off the Hook (golden taupe) and Comet (purple silver) and it’s hard to pick a favorite. I have a lot of shadows like Sparkler and Off the Hook and popping a touch of the pigment in the center of my eye brings a fantastic gleam to my eye. More unusual for me is Comet with its purple and silver look. It looks amazing with gray shadows especially. You can apply these easily with your fingers or with a brush.
These are basically no fallout shadows with a high gleam finish. They are formulated without parabens, gluten, fragrance, & talc.
Now for the foundation that I’ve been wearing constantly this summer, Natural Finish Foundation. I’d been on a quest to find a lightweight foundation that I could wear comfortably in warm weather and that didn’t make my pores look like an orange rind. I don’t want to see those little dots of foundation on my face, nor do you.
I wasn’t sure if Natural Finish Foundation would be good for summer or if I’d have to hold onto it for cooler weather. And I learned … tada … that I can use it for all seasons. While its claim is that it’s a medium to full finish I disagree and say it’s been light to medium for me. If I use a Beauty Blender damp sponge then I end up with a perfect light coverage. If I use a rounded foundation brush I usually get more coverage. If I use my fingers I’ll get a medium to full finish. That’s ideal.
Bodyography utilizes “advanced micro pigments for exceptional, undetectable coverage. Photo Control Technology and a high Reflective Index System help to soften fine lines and create a natural glow. Nourishing Vitamin E protects and heals the skin with nutrient-rich antioxidants resulting in a light, silky, flawless finish that allows skin to look its best.”
This fragrance free foundation is infused with Vitamin E for healing as well as vitamin C, and antioxidants to protect, moisturize, and heal skin. It’s also oil free which can emphasize pores on dry skin. But it really works well for me. Plus the price of $26 is great, I expected it would cost more. I have #100 which is for light, neutral skin and while it’s a tad yellow when I first apply it, it doesn’t oxidize. Instead it melds with my skin to give a natural finish that lasts well through the day and evening. There are 10 shades which might make it hard for everyone to find a perfect one especially if your skin is naturally dark. But they represent the light to medium skintones well.
Bodyography is a brand I’m enjoying exploring. I’ve yet to be disappointed with their products and I expect it to stay that way. — Marcia
