W3ll People Narcissist Stick Foundation 

Recently, I decided I wanted to try a few more natural beauty products. It’s so hard to find a good natural foundation and concealer so  I decided to focus on that first. I went to Target and I found I brand I didn’t know much about: W3ll People, and I picked up a few of their products. Today’s product that I’ll be reviewing is the W3ll People Narcissist Stick Foundation which retails for between $28 – $33 depending on the retailer.

First, let’s go over some of the “natural” qualities. This product is 70% organic, vegan, hypoallergenic, chemical-free, fragrance-free, cruelty-free, and non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores). It’s also made without gluten, parabens, GMOs, phthalates, sulfates, dimethicone, propylene glycol, mineral oil, talc, and more! So, I was super pleased with all of that. However, beeswax is listed as an ingredient, so that would seem to negate its claims of being vegan unless its synthetic beeswax. Some of it’s other natural ingredients are aloe vera, vitamin e, and green tea which makes it great for sensitive skin.

So, now on to the actual performance of the product. I’ll admit that I was immediately a little concerned. There was something about the texture that felt kind of dry, so I was afraid that I would have a difficult time blending the product. Thankfully, the product seems to melt with the warmth of your skin, so it was actually pretty easy to blend. It’s a very medium-coverage foundation that can be built up even more. The thickness of the product also makes it a great concealer, which is how I’ve been using it mostly. I was impressed by its lasting power. Not only does is cover a lot of flaws, it has a great finish (somewhere between a satin and a matte, leaning more towards matte) and it lasts pretty much all day. I really like this product, and I’m happy to recommend it to others who are looking for a natural foundation!

Bite Beauty 

Over the years, I have amassed so many lipsticks from Bite Beauty.  The picture below shows just a handful of the various samples and purchases I’ve picked up. This brand is one you can get at Sephora. They’re whole focus is lips, which is really fun.

Part of the Bite Beauty goal is to provide high-quality products that use natural, good-for-you ingredients. So, if you’re worried about chemicals, you can rest assured that these products are made from healthy, organic materials. Now, for a natural lipstick, this is definitely the best brand I’ve ever tried. The products are easy to apply, apply and wear evenly, and don’t dry out the lips too much. That being said, if you’re just looking for a lipstick and you’re not as concerned about the ingredients that may be used, I wouldn’t really recommend these. I find that I’m consistently underwhelmed by these products. Does anyone else feel that way? There’s nothing really wrong with them – they’re just not the best. They don’t wear the longest. They’re not the most moisturizing. They colors aren’t the prettiest. Honestly, I’m not sure how I’ve managed to amass so many of these products since I don’t love them. So, my overall verdict is that this one is great if you want a natural product, but it’s a pass if that’s not your goal.

What do you think? Is this brand the bomb or just blah to you?
