Last month I attended an intimate lunch for an Australian natural beauty brand, Modere.  Modere's philosophy is simple, powerful and honest.

..."Makeup that works with your skin’s own tone and highlights so your natural beauty can shine through, that feels good to wear and allows your skin to breathe.

Colour that’s clean and safe, with BPA free packaging, natural mineral pigments and certified organic botanicals and without potentially harmful ingredients, animal products or animal testing. 

No masks. No fa├žade. Just a radiant and authentic beauty that comes from within."

Today, consumers are becoming more educated and aware of the effects of our carbon footprint on the environment as well as being more skin conscious. So it's only fitting for a brand like Modere to have a place in our market that represents natural products for the home, body and face as well as being kind to the environment.

Modere have expanded their range to include a wonderful collection of mineral makeup.  Here is a selection of products that I will be swatching.

Primer & Foundation

This mineral primer has a luxurious silky texture. It has more of a light serum feel to it than a primer. It has a cooling and calming effect on the skin.  With natural mica, a light reflecting mineral, will leave skin looking young and luminescent.

Contains Organic aloe to soothes redness and hydrates tired or dehydrated skin, witch hazel to tighten pores leaving skin fresh and radiant and grapefruit seed extract, which acts as a natural antioxidant.

RRP $42.95

Liquid Mineral Foundation
This foundation has a creamy consistency. Once applied the coverage is lighter than expected but is buildable from light through to medium coverage.  This particular colour is 'Natural' and is a little dark for my skin tone which is a pity as I liked the way it felt on my skin.

Contains a number of certified organic ingredients - jojoba seed oil for hydration, avocado oil to condition the skin and rose flower extract to soften the skin.

Comes in 4 shades - RRP $49.95

Powder Power

Mineral Pressed Foundation
Can I just say that this is the best mineral pressed foundation I have used thus far. The colour shown is Ivory.  This is a perfect colour for my skin.  I am super impressed with this foundation.

It is really light and easy to build from, without it looking or feeling heavy.  It was easy to cover up skin imperfections without using a concealer.   It wears really well and my skin did not feel dry at all when wearing for an entire day.  It can be worn on it's own or over their mineral liquid foundation.

L-R: Pressed Foundation & Bronzer

Ingredients include Ethyl macadamiate - comes from natural macadamia oil, it creates a light, non-greasy texture and feel on the skin; Jojoba esters - the benefits of natural jojoba oil in pressed powders acts as an emollient to soften and soothe.

Comes in 4 shades - RRP $44.95

Let me tell you the mistake I made. Swiped my brush and straight onto face and had a dark brown stripe.  Maybe a little heavy handed on the bronzer!  You only need to tap the brush ever so lightly on the bronzer and a little definitely goes a long way.  I love this colour.  

Ingredients include Ethyl macadamiate -  fatty acids derived from Macadamia seed oil; Mica for that natural skin glow and Lauroyl lysine - an amino acid derivative made from coconut fatty acids.

RRP $46.95

Blush Hour

These mineral blushes have gorgeous pigments.  They both have different pigment depth.  The texture is silky and glides on the skin nicely.  They don't dry the skin and stays put for the entire day.

Posie is a shimmery pinky nude/brown. This applied easier than Poppy. Poppy is a matte coral finish, a few strokes were applied for colour to be built.

L-R: Poppy & Posie

With colours like Poppy, it is so easy to over apply and look like a rosy gran but with this one, application is light so building colour is easier to blend and perfect.

Blush comes in 3 shades - RRP $34.95

All About The Eyes

Eye Shadows
These eye shadows are so beautiful. The colours are intensely pigmented. There are no words to explain how amazing these eye shadows are. These powder eye shadows are so creamy, they glide onto the eye area really easy.

Even though the colours are highly pigmented, they are buildable and blendable. They stay put all day with no movement.

L-R: Bella, Frenchy, Cognac, Honestly

Comes in 12 amazing colours - RRP $28.95

Finishing Touches

This is a mascara with a difference.  The packaging is slimline, quite different to what is currently on the market. There are many that a way too bulky to hold or even carry in a clutch, so this size is ideal.

Going back to basics with the mascara wand?   The mascara wand and brush has been designed to work hand in hand with the mineral formulation to lengthen and thicken the lashes naturally.  It is buildable so you can reapply for a more bold look.

Mascara contains lash strengthening ingredients; Carnauba wax to help thicken and lengthen your lashes, certified organic castor seed oil for a clump-free formula and perfect lash separation (as well as aid in lash growth) and jojoba seed oil to nourish and keep lashes lush.

Comes in Black only - RRP $32.95

With a full range of colours from barely there all the way to the classic bold red, these lippies apply sheer and can be built for a more intense colour.  They are creamy, hydrating and glide on the lips like a dream.

Contains lip loving ingredients like Shea butter to keep your smacker moist and protected from the harsh elements, carnauba wax which gives a creamy texture and candelilla wax which gives that smooth, creamy finish.

The lipsticks are vegan and cruelty free. The pigments are strong and long lasting.

L-R: Relish, Molly, Barely

Comes in 12 gorgeous colours - RRP $35.95

Lip Gloss
These lip glosses comes in either creamy or sheer formula.  Contains natural vitamin E like the lipsticks, these glosses feel like a cross between a gloss and a lip balm.

They can be worn on their own or over a lipstick to change the finish.  They are non-sticky so no need to worry about your hair sticking to your lips.

Ingredients include certified organic orange peel oil, for that fresh, sweet, natural fragrance and hydrogenated polyisobutene, an excellent moisturiser and emollient to help prevent water loss from the lips.

T-B: Marmalade & Watermelon

Comes in 4 delicious colours - RRP $26.95

This is such a beautiful range.  I definitely want to add more pieces to my collection especially the eye shadows, you need to check them out!
