A couple of my friends have been on a quest to test out natural/organic/vegan/ethical/sustainable makeup brands, such as rms (Mecca), BareMinerals (Mecca), ILIA (Mecca), Nude By Nature, to name a few.
I haven’t tested any, except for Nude by Nature: I bought some mineral foundation from them and I thought I had matched my skin colour, but it turned out waaay too pink for my skin tone, and so I don’t have the heart to toss it out and buy a new colour.
Thus I was introduced to tmf cosmetics (the makeup factory), an Australian brand focused on vegan, organic, cruelty free, mineral makeup. They have an easy-to-use line of mineral foundation, blushes, bronzers, eye liners, organic lip glosses, brow colours and more.
I picked them up, courtesy of Generics – Style Lab / Urban Apothecary / Pamper Corner (Corner of William and Aberdeen Street, Northbridge).
Tmf do have a website, but I’ve been told it’s just a temporary site, as the new site will be live next month. So the temporary site doesn’t have much information about the brand/products, plus it links to the wrong Facebook page. BUT you can check out their actual Facebook page here (which is quite active and has a good 24K following).
Despite all that, I was truly amazed by how LOVELY the products felt on my skin and lips.
I loved (LOVED!!) the lipstick best of all. It was really hydrating and nourishing. And after I applied it, it left this very natural, soft, after-feeling, that was simply amazing.
It made me realise how “chemically” all my regular lipsticks feel on my lips – I know that’s such a typical “organic lover” thing to say haha, but that’s the only way I can describe it!
The foundation was really nice too. But I preferred to use it as a finishing powder, on top of my regular makeup.
There’s no way to look at colours or buy online, so if you’re interested you have to pop into the Generics Shop in Northbridge to check it out.
