Hi, everyone! Earlier this week I introduced you to the new products I received from Swaggable. The products I would like to talk about today are the products I received from Vasanti. Prior to receiving these products in the mail, I had never heard of Vasanti. After a little bit of research I found out that Vasanti was founded by a sisterhood of women (three sisters and one childhood friend). This sisterhood of women created their beauty products around one simple question: “Why doesn’t make-up look good on me?” You can read more about the sisterhood behind these lovely products here. While conducting my research, I came across one huge plus – Vasanti products are not tested on animals. You can purchase these products via vasanticosmetics.com, birchbox.com, amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, and at selected high end Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada.
Vasanti Professional Foundation Brush
The first product I would like to discuss is the Vasanti Professional Foundation Brush. I have only used a foundation brush to apply foundation a handful of times in my lifetime. Each time, I was disappointed with the amount of coverage provided and the streaky appearance the brush left. For these reasons alone, I began using blending sponges. I recommend these.
I found that this foundation brush actually works exceptionally well for blending under eye concealer. I’ve always used a blending sponge for this as well, but I have now moved on to using the Vasanti Professional Foundation Brush. Using this foundation brush allows me to build up the concealer rather than dab it away with the blending sponge. This allows me to better cover up my insane dark circles.
– Cruelty Free – None
– Soft Bristles
– Flawless Concealer Finish
I’m going to do a bit of a combined review for the Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator and the Vasanti Detox – Nutrient Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser. I have been using both of these cleansers and I can’t say there is anything special about either one of them. I honestly prefer soap and water to using any type of cleanser. I will continue to use both of these and update this post if my opinion changes down the road. Both of these products have great reviews on Amazon.com, so I highly recommend you checking them out prior to purchasing either one of these products. While they may not have worked for me, they may work wonderfully for you 😉
– Cruelty Free – Drying
Vasanti Time After Time Gel Matte Lipstick
The packaging is beautiful and just look at that color <3 The color I received is “Game Time” which is a medium rose pink. It’s not quite a pink and not quite a red, but is absolutely gorgeous. The pigment on these babies is ridiculous. One thing I always worry about when trying a matte lipstick is the drying factor. This lipstick is actually quite moisturizing and glides on velvety smooth. I was able to wear this lipstick for 8 hours without a touch-up. Pretty impressive! Some matte lipsticks also require a bit of “dry time” before the lipstick actually becomes matte. I did not find that to be the case with this lipstick. I think I have found my new go-to lipstick! I can’t wait to try more of the shades that Vasanti has available.
– Cruelty Free – None
– Matte (with no “dry time”)
– Smooth and Moisturizing
– Great for any time of day/event
Well my loves, I hope you enjoyed learning more about Vasanti and the impressive products I received to test and review for you all. Thus far, I am very impressed with the Vasanti brand and look forward to trying more of their products in the near future.
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year, filled with many blessings to come!
