There's nothing like seeing a new spring/summer release and when I was kindly sent some of the products from this collection to try out, I couldn't wait to see how the brand Dr Hauschka was seeing as I had never tried any make-up products from them before. Read on to know a bit more about the collection and my initial thoughts.
Your passion for colour is expressed in this limited edition collection for Spring 2014. Rich hues coordinate with softer tones, while shimmer is tempered with a matte finish to create a harmonious balance. The Chorus Collection offers stunning looks that are spot on-trend, highlighting your natural beauty while caring for the skin with the finest botanical ingredients.
Six playful colours that rise and fall, forming the visible rhythm in nature’s great concert.
The collection is small but the heart of it is the Matte & Shimmer Blush Trio (£29) which consists of three shades - Magic Sandstone, Ecstatic Pink and Confident Berry. The actual shades come in two finishes, matte and shimmer which means you easily contour/highlight your face and even achieve a healthy flush. The colours add natural vitality to your skin and the compact is even enriched with pure essential rose oils.
There are two Eyeshadow Duos (£25*) in Daring Green/Passionate Violet and Ecstatic Pink/Melancholic Blue. The pigment in the eyeshadows are made out of organic silk and medicinal herbs that cares for sensitive skin around the eyes. Each duo features a jewel tone with a softer hue so that you can easily create eye looks to compliment your eyes as it adds luminosity to your eyes by the beautiful shimmer in the pigments.
The lovely Taupe Eyeliner (14.50*) with a added metallic finish really finishes off the eyes by creating definition and a subtle smokey effect if blended out with the sponge applicator. This eyeliner also contains botanical oils and waxes to ensure the eye area is moisturised and well protected too!
For the lips there is the Lipgloss (£15.20*) in Golden Apricot and Lipstick (£20*) also featuring in the shade Golden Apricot. The lipgloss contains beewax, mango butter and apricot kernel oil to ensure lips are hydrated, moisturised whilst looking pretty with the added glimmer and shine. The lipstick can also compliment any skin tone and it's rich composition allows the lips to feel hydrated and comforted with a lovely colour and it's shiny finish. This lipstick is packed with rose blossoms, rose hips, almond oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba, rose wax, beeswax, candelilla wax and carnauba wax which can only mean that it's really good for the condition of your lips!
I do think that this collection is very subtle and simple in terms of the colour palette that was chosen but I really commend the skin benefits that you will achieve thanks to the amazing ingredients used! Wearing make-up that actually helps your skin condition or just knowing that there are no nasty chemicals can really make you feel at ease. If you are new to Dr Hauschka make up then do give this range a try because the actual quality is fantastic! I will also be reviewing each make-up item separately and in more depth for those of you who are interested in the products.
