What Natural Makeup Dreams Are Made Of: La Bella Figura Beauty’s More Than Makeup Line

LBF2LBF3Luxurious all-natural skincare powerhouse, La Bella Figura Beauty recently forayed into the makeup world with their More Than Makeup line, and it’s nothing less than amazing. Once I set eyes on the clean, simple formulas and sexy, luxurious mirrored-compact packaging, I knew I had to try these new products. Featuring highly-pigmented, cream blush, highlighter,  eyeshadow, lip tint, and now 2 limited edition products for the holidays: a blush and an eyeshadow duo, La Bella Figura makeup is enough for any beauty junkie to swoon. The pretty, universal colors tempted me but so did the fact that the product formulations focused on nourishing, skin-healing ingredients. It seemed revolutionary that these makeup products could still perform as makeup, but could heal your skin while beautifying it. I found that these beauty products are indeed what natural makeup dreams are made of.

"We designed our makeup collection with the same high standards as our beloved skincare line featuring superlative ingredients that heal, soothe and reveal radiance from deep within. Many of us wear makeup every day and often reapply throughout the day. With every application, we wanted that experience to be nourishing to the skin with selected ingredients that are effective and known to promote renewal while still providing luscious color."

LBF1For my first LBF purchase, I couldn’t resist picking up the Just Jenna Radiant Creme Blush and Brazilian Denise Golden Corrective Highlighter. (I bought both from The Detox Market during one of their frequent store promotions.) Both products exceeded my expectations for natural, highly-pigmented makeup products and had me completely obsessed. Just Jenna ($36) is a high quality, super pigmented pop of orchid pink with a tiny bit of shimmer that smooths into the cheeks and lasts beautifully throughout the day. I usually shy away from pink cheek hues but I have used this color almost everyday and never tire of how vibrant and sweet it makes my face look.

Brazilian Denise Golden Corrective Highlighter ($38) is the best illuminating, highlighting makeup product I have ever tried. I’ve used cult favorite highlighter, RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer before but it just didn’t work for me. Brazilian Denise produces the perfect sheer, bronze glow without being too sparkly. I like how the color is more golden-toned (as opposed to RMS’ whitish, silver-y hued product) and it blends really well with my skintone while not making me look like I’ve been sitting in a tanning booth. The hint of bronze-gold flecks produce a natural, healthy glow that pleasantly enhances my features. I love applying on the high-points of my face, my cheekbones, and on my browbrone. This highlighter is also perfect to use as an eyeshadow base, a bronze-y blush, or to lightly contour the face. For the cold, less sunny-days ahead, I’m keeping this product near me at all times to make that natural glow last all year long.LBF4

Recently, LBF kindly sent me their limited-edition holiday blush in Disco Queen Gloria* and limited-edition Soothing Creme Eyeshadow Duo in La Boum/Soul Train*. You can only get these limited edition colors at LaBellaFiguraBeauty.com and only while supplies last!

Disco Queen Gloria* ($36) is hands-down my favorite blush color, ever. It is the perfect subtle, golden rose color. Gloria blends into my skintone beautifully and gives the most beautiful, naturally flushed look without being too pink. If you’re into more bronze-y, terracotta-toned cheek colors like I am, this is an absolute must-have product. Not only is it a great, everyday blush color, for me it also doubles as a contour color. I love applying this color alone on my cheeks or sometimes blending a bit of Just Jenna on top of Gloria for a teeny punch of brightness. The result is show-stopping. I’m bummed this is a limited-edition blush color but I guess that just means I’ll need to stock up before it’s totally gone!

La Boum/Soul Train* ($30) are 2 gorgeous creme eyeshadow colors perfect for fall, winter, and the holidays. La Boum is a radiant, grey-silver highlight color that is nice to use under the browbone, in the corners of the eyes or even as a highlighting color on the face. Soul Train is a stunning olive green color, my favorite type of eyeshadow shade. It’s a deep, true-olive with a tiny hint of shine, perfect for all-over the lid or as a color to darken the eye creases. I love the combination of both these colors and while the creme formulation doesn’t really withstand my super-oily lids throughout the day (and I mean really oily,) this creamy, pigmented duo is perfect for on-the-go application and will be an essential product in my makeup bag this season.

I’m used to trying out new blush colors and facial products proceeding with caution, as my sensitive skin can take quite a beating in exchange for high-quality, lasting performance. I was happily surprised to find that LBF’s blushes and highlighter were neither irritating nor harsh on my skin, in fact I found that my skin seemed to stay soothed if not, healed with time. The smooth, nourishing texture blends effortlessly into skin and does not leave me feeling dry or caked with makeup. Sometimes color additives and makeup ingredients (even natural ones) make my face break out or cause redness.

With all of LBF’s makeup products, you can safely trust the natural and certified organic ingredients to be nourishing, soothing, and healing for skin. These products are revolutionary in bringing luxurious, high-quality makeup to the green beauty market, working like skincare to soothe and treat skin at the same time. These products are made for those with sensitive-skin like me and I’m thrilled that  all LBF makeup formulas are “free from talc, corn, soy, beeswax, coconut, parabens, synthetic lake dyes, chemical preservatives, and GMOs, 100% Vegan.”

"Our color collection features distinctive ingredients in their unadulterated, unrefined and most potent natural state for superior performance. Beneficial ingredients such as raw cupuacu butter exhibits moisture-retentive properties to keep cells hydrated and kakadu plum cell extract offers a high source of complete Vitamin C. Pure mineral pigments, breathable plant waxes, and our unrefined use of oils and extracts increase luminosity while maintaining lightweight performance that feels luxurious on the skin."

    I hope to try them one day!!… I just have to use up what I got first (I’ve been soo good at buying only what I need). Though I have recently discovered my love for cream blushes so as soon as I start buying La Bella Figura is at the top of my list!!

      You’re too good! 😉 LBF cream blushes really are a must-have, so hopefully you try them soon! I haven’t bought many new things either in attempts to use up what I already have. Just Jenna and Brazilian Denise were both exceptions I couldn’t resist purchasing! 🙂

    Loved reading this post and love that you love Disco Queen Gloria because I succumbed and bought it before it sells out! I’m usually quite loath to buy a product I can’t try beforehand but this blush sounds like the kind of colour I usually go for from the reviews I’ve read so…it should be with me soon, got the shipping confirmation this morning =) It will also be my first LBF product so that in itself is quite exciting! Great review Kasey! xx

    Ok, your review just pushed me over my purchasing ledge–I must have both the blush and the highlighter! I was debating but the Just Jenna looks gorgeous! Thanks for the post!

    The highlighter and the Disco Queen Gloria blush look gorgeous! I’m trying to cut back on my blushes since I feel like I have so many, but this shade looks so unique that it might be hard to resist!
