Hello lovelies. Today I want to chat to you about a cruelty free brand that I recently discovered, Dare Makeup. A collection of natural makeup that offers you a range of products for any occasion. Providing you with all the essentials you need in your cosmetics bag, from lipgloss of all shades and long-lasting lipliner, to eyeshadow and gel effect nail polish, you can create the ultimate look, day or night. These products are not tested on animals, and are ethically packaged (the packaging materials are sourced from recycled materials and can be recycled).
In addition to receiving the products, I was fortunate to attend the launch and play around with the various products (launched in July this year). Today I will be speaking about 3 of my favourite Dare Makeup products.
Dare Makeup Nudes 12 Colour Eye Shadow Palette
I absolutely adore the 12 neutral shades that are longlasting and very easy to blend. The combination of colours also allows you to create a natural (I usually opt for natural) or a bold look. This palette has shades of bronze, peach, black, maroon and green in order to different looks for any occasion. It’s a neutral palette with pigmented shades which lasts for 6-8 hours. I adore the combination of colours which work well on all skin tones. The mirror and brush allows for application anywhere, just pop it into your makeup bag and you’re good to go! The palette retails for R500.00.
Dake Makeup Black All-in-One Mascara
Dare Makeup mascara delivers on volume, length and intense colour. My eyelashes are very short, so I needed to apply 2-3 coats for the desired effect. The waterproof mascara does take a little bit longer to dry (Tip: apply one coat at a time, giving it a minute interval). The center of the brush has a hollow core to collect more product and give your lashes a dramatic effect. The Dare Makeup mascara brush is easy to use and coats those tiny lashes with minimal effect. The outer part of the brush is thicker, therefore it coated my small lashes easily. I’ve mentioned before that my eyes are senstive and I cannot wear any brand of mascara. Thankfully, this mascara did not irritate my lashes. I also have to mention that removing the mascara was a breeze! The mascara retails for R200.00
Dare Makeup Mistery Gel Effect Nail Polish
This is my favourite product in the Dare Makeup range. I adore this shade and nail polish, I think it works well with every skin tone (my sisters and I are all wearing this shade and we LOVE it). The bright colour reminds me of Summer, I will be wearing it during Spring and Summer. The nail polish is long-lasting, even without applying a top coat. It lasted for a week without any cracks or chips. After applying my Dake Makeup nail polish, the colour nor shine faded (without a top coat). It remained shiny throughout the week with a smooth finish. The nail polish dries quickly and retails for R180.00.
