Let’s face it, choosing a natural mascara and eyeliner can be an annoyingly tricky thing. I have tried many before – mascara particularly- and finding one that isn’t too runny, clumpy or doesn’t smudge when you so much as blink seemed quite impossible. It’s a maddening world of natural cosmetics out there, with new brands popping up frequently to confuse us even more.
My most recent findings come from a notable French brand, Phyt’s Naturo-Esthetique. The fact that it’s French was enough to capture and intrigue my curiosity, when I think “French” an image of all things luxurious and sophisticated come to mind, which I truly appreciate.
I can tell you many wonderful things about Phyt’s, but we’ll settle with just a few.
– Jean-Paul Llopart is the founder of Phyt’s
– He is a Naturopath and Biologist
– Phyt’s was created 40 years ago and continues to grow in popularity
– It isn’t just make-up that Phyt’s produce for your benefits, you have a range of facial/body/baby skin care to indulge yourself with
– In 2003, Phyt’s became officially certified organic by ECOCERT, so you know what you’re putting on your skin is really organic, not some wish-wash brand making plain claims
One thing I’ve learnt from using the Multi Effects Mascara is that you must wait for it to dry in-between applications, it’s rather wet and a little on the runnier side – so patiently waiting is a must. I’m willing to bet the runniness comes from the concoction of oils used in the mixture, being a lover of oils I was most excited to discover this contained jojoba, sesame and macadamia, 3 lovely oils known for their nourishing properties. Along with natural waxes and honey, (which offers the mascara a sweet scent, not that having pleasant-smelling eyelashes is a necessary thing) you’re providing your lashes with a glamorous treat.
The Eyeliner Pencil is just as good as the mascara, using shea butter, castor and sunflower oils to produce a creamy texture that glides on effortlessly, no chance here of stabbing yourself repeatedly whilst applying.
RRP – The Multi Effects Mascara retails for $38
The Eye Pencil retails for $20
