Arbonne Cosmetics

Hello my loves...




So recently I have been testing out some makeup, skincare & lifestyle products from Arbonne cosmetics and have been for a week now. So today I wanted to share a bit about the company as well as my thoughts and opinions on the make-up bits I tried.

Now Arbonne cosmetics is an international brand who as mentioned above provide spa quality skincare, make-up and lifestyle products, and who in their own words 'have enjoyed 35 years of transformation'. In my opinion this tells you a lot about the brand and what is important to them, they and their team of sales and marketing staff are all very proud of their company and what they have achieved in those 35 years (quite rightly so). It is a family led company, founded in Switzerland which trickles down from founder to everyday men and women who like with other brands such as Avon, sell the products from the comfort of their own mini business. In the founders own words, 'Arbonne is a place where ordinary people do extraordinary things everyday to enhance not only their own lives, but also the lives of so many others'. He seems to really care for and believe in the brand which as a potential buyer I find very enticing.

Now for the more exciting part of today's post, my review. From the make-up range I tested their best-selling primer, liquid foundation in shades fair and buff (I have very pale skin and both these colours worked) and their liquid highlight. I will therefore split my review into three sections.

Primer:

The primer is apparently the bestselling Arbonne product of all time and from my first use I could definitely see why. The primer feels amazing and silky against the skin and definitely does what it promises, which is to blur fine lines and pores, creating a smooth canvas for your foundation to effortlessly glide onto. The key ingredients are hyaluronic filling spheres, which I'm guessing are the reason for the smoothness. Green tea & grapeseed extracts which are both so good for the skin. Overall the primer feels great, ensures your foundation glides on flawlessly and lasts all day. I would definitely try this product again. Now it is in a higher price range at £27 for 30ml but a little goes a long way and a good primer can make all the difference. 

Perfecting liquid foundation:

Now the foundation I tried is described in the book as protecting & moisturising, whilst minimising the appearance of fine lines and firmer skin. Again I would agree with this description, I didn't notice the moisturising aspect that much but it did definitely make my skin more flawless and fresher looking. The main thing I noticed though was the fantastic build-able, medium to full coverage provided which I have been so thankful for. It also glides on and applies over the primer like a dream. Again it is quite pricey at £32 for 30ml around the same as for my usual Nars Sheer Glow foundation, however if you are looking for a good, medium to full coverage base I would definitely recommend checking this out. Also as a pale girl I appreciated the broad colour range.

Sheer glow highlighter:

The last product I tested was the highlight. Their highlight is a lightweight liquid product which has a very present sparkle when applied. I did however notice that if I tried to apply with my Real Techniques sponge or a brush it tended to take off my existing make-up. I therefore would recommend using your fingers to apply. The highlight is also a higher price range at £32 for 30ml so I would probably never buy myself. However we all know that strobe game is high so if you are in the market for a liquid highlighter I would recommend. 

So that is all for my little review, I hope you enjoyed. I definitely would recommend Arbonne make-up products, I am in love with that primer, obsessed. I shall leave info on where to buy down below. However until next time...
