Skin care and makeup form an essential part of a woman’s sense of well-being and should be fuss-free and easy to achieve in the shortest amount of time. Jane Iredale, for the uninitiated, is the founder of Jane Iredale Skincare Makeup and currently living in the United States. Jane worked in the entertainment industry in her younger days and was inspired to develop a makeup range that was beneficial for the skin as she saw many actresses suffering with ill-effects from the heavy makeup they wore. She saw how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers, but also destroyed self-confidence.
Jane Iredale was created for sensitive skin conditions in mind, such as rosacea, eczema and other skin ailments and dermatologists would recommend the mineral makeup brand to patients who have just came out from surgery or aesthetic procedures.
Their products are made of pure minerals – no talc, chemical preservatives, FD&C dyes or synthetic fragrances. The Jane Iredale brand is carried throughout the United States and world-wide in more than 40 countries, including the sunny shores of Singapore.
I was first introduced to Jane Iredale Skincare Mineral Makeup when I was having my aesthetic treatment at Dr Benjamin Yim’s Clinic who carries the full range of Jane Iredale products. During one of my appointments at the clinic, I actually bought several Jane Iredale products and Jane Iredale Singapore has also sent me some items from their new Fall Collection which I will be reviewing together with the awesome products I have purchased.
Smell the Roses Hydration Spray
“Everyone needs to smell the roses more often, take a deep breath and appreciate life. That’s why Smell the Roses was born. I wanted to give every woman that little break in their day when they could feel refreshed and alive. Enjoy!” – Jane Iredale
In celebration of 7 years of partnership with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, 100% of profits from the sale of this Smell the Roses Hydration Spray will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer in support of women affected by breast cancer.
This moisturizing hydration spray contains organic Rose Damascena Flower Water which is an excellent skin tonic that can calm inflammation, reduce redness as well as nourish, tighten, detoxify and increase the skin micro-circulation. The spray is multi-functional as it not only hydrates the skin, sets your makeup but can also be used to wet makeup brushes for a different application to create precise lines.
The Smell the Roses Hydration Spray is recommended for any skin types, especially for dry or sensitive skin. All Jane Iredale Hydration Sprays has earned the ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic Cosmetics Certification, as all ingredients are derived from renewable resources and organic farming and the Smell the Roses Hydration Spray is certified to be 100% natural and 30% organic.
I really love the refreshing rose fragrance that de-stress and uplifts my mood as I used it as a final step of my makeup regime to set everything in place.
Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener
This award-winning (HER WORLD BEAUTY AWARDS 2013) primer is an aromatic translucent formula packed with beneficial botanicals that have anti-aging properties. It not only helps to brighten and nourish your skin, but can also minimise the appearance of pores and wrinkles, and helps to control oil.
It contains beneficial key ingredients such as grapefruit extracts to promote skin luminosity and apple extracts which acts as an antioxidant to maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity.
The Primer helps to moisturize the skin and ease makeup application. It can be used on its own for a sheer glow effect or enhance the wear of your mineral foundation.
The Primer does not feel thick and sticky at all and has a refreshing grapefruit scent. I apply a thin layer around the eyes before applying BB cream or foundation to prevent the foundation from drying the delicate eye area.
I like the brightening effect which gives my dry face a radiant, dewy glow. Jane Iredale has also just launched the Smooth Affair Primer for OILY skin.
The New PlayOn Lip Crayons (Available in late August 2015)
Jane Iredale’s new PlayOn Lip Crayons come in 7 vibrant, pigmented and versatile shades with excellent colour pay-off.
The lip crayons are made without petroleum, FD&C dyes, synthetic fragrance and synthetic preservatives. With the absence of petroleum and the incorporation of high concentration of moisturizing oils, my lips feel so soft and conditioned. It also contains Vitamin E which acts as a topical antioxidant and natural preservative. The sleek pencil design has a pointed tip for precise application which is easy to achieve with their Jumbo Pencil Sharpener.
My Lip Swatches:
The 7 irresistible luscious shades are:
- Charming – Creamy bubblegum pink
- Hot – Creamy hot red
- Naughty – Creamy brick red
- Luscious – Creamy rose brown
- Blissful – Shimmering sheer nude
- Yummy – Creamy sheer peach
- Saucy – Creamy hot coral
I used the lip crayons daily (a different colour to suit my mood and clothes for that day) and it is really long-lasting, soft and creamy. My favourite colours are Blissful, Luscious and Charming. It is another versatile product that can also be used as an eye shadow and blusher. Just apply and smudge them with your fingers.
Ever since I started using Jane Iredale pure mineral makeup (I am using the Luscious Lip Crayon in the photo above), I am so not used to using other brands of makeup as not only does the mineral makeup NOT clog my pores, I also love the skin care benefits it brings.
The natural fruity ingredients smells so good that really give me a great sense of well-being using them. Though my mineral makeup is sheer and natural, it actually lasted the whole day outside with sufficient coverage without the need to touch up my makeup!
Of course on days that I need a greater coverage, I will use the Jane Iredale BB cream instead of the liquid foundation. I also love how versatile and multi-functional their products are.
