New greenies: Jane Iredale Feeling alive spring 2012 collection

Spring is usually the season when we feel the need to change something, to awake something new inside of us and even to try something new for “updating”our self-image. Jane Iredale, the renowned brand of mineral based make-up has launched the new collection for spring 2012, called Feeling alive. It’s all about fresh vibrant colors and also some shades for the non-vibrant color lovers 🙂

The collection includes one of my favourite multi-use products called Quad Bronzer. This new one from the spring collection is called Rose dawn quad bronzer and it’s a quadrant of colours that you can use on cheeks, but also on the eyes and lips. It has 4 nice shades that can be worn alone or combined together: a shimmer light pink, a pale rose, shimmering bronze and brown-red terracotta shade. For a subtle slightly shimmering look!

Eye gloss is also one of their great products because it’s a gloss for the eyes that turns into a creamy eyeshadow. The spring collection has 2 new shades: one is aqua green called Aqua silk, the other is a light baby pink shade called Pink silk. Both very vibrant shades! You can use this gloss as a silky eyeshadow for creating a satin eyelids effect or you can apply it even as an eyeliner.

Just kissed lip plumper comes in 2 new shades for summer: L.A and Rio – one is light rose and the other is a rosy bronze, both slightly shimmer. This is the perfect summer lipstick because it adds moisture to your skin and the right touch of shimmer and colour. It’s the kind of sheer lipstick that you can apply easily everywhere, without bothering too much about the prefect line. Ginger and mint oils give the effect of fuller lips.

Pink lip definer is the final touch in the collection. It’s a lip liner that you can use with your lipstick or without, just by applying it on top of your clear lip balm. Another option is to mix it with a lip gloss to get a glossy and full effect with a light pink shade.

    I don t know this Brand! Is the INCI List ok? Is it Organic/Natural Cosmetics? Thanks!!

      Hi Anne! Jane Iredale is one of the best mineral make-up brands in the world. Their INCI list is great and it’s one of the brands (if not the only one) with safe ingredients that has the widest selection of products even for professional use, which is quite impossible to find. However, the application is a little bit different in comparison with other conventional products, because minerals are applied slightly different (technique).
