Product Review : Und Gretel Leith Foundation

issue one : borrowed from before

In my personal - and professional - opinion, what sets a makeup artist apart from a beauty blogger is simply how we choose to use a particular product. Sure, this product review is about foundation, which technically should be applied to your face to even out your skin tone - but there are thousands of other bloggers out there that can shed their opinions on how that anticipated finish might be.

Here, at Untainted, I want to share with you how to think out the box and use untainted products in a completely different way. 

For the historical beauty article: "Beauty, A Thing of the PastI created this "mud mask" on Mani's hands, using Und Gretel Leith Foundation in Mocha 05It was obviously several shades darker than Mani's skin tone, and had a lovely reddish (warm) tone to it, that was reminiscent of  the natural colours clay - the very ingredient that was used to make beauty masks in the past. The fact that it dries to a matte finish, also adds to the illusion of dried mud on the skin.

TIP:

Due to the nature of untainted ingredients, and the fact that this BDIH certified product does not contain any synthetic ingredients to bind it, the foundation can separate a little in the bottle, making it a bit difficult to pump out the dispenser. Do not fret! Just give the bottle a really good shake and it dispenses like a dream.

 

Und Gretel Leith Foundation is infused with moisturising organic rosehip and avocado oils and soothing chamomile extracts. It is a buildable liquid formulation and ideal for sensitive skin (thanks to all those nourishing ingredients mentioned above). As it is water-based, it dries to a lovely matte finish, suitable for everyday wear.

Available in five shades and that can be mixed together for the perfect match as your skin tone changes with the seasons.
