BareMineral | Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara & Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel

BareMineral’s Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara & Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel has been on my radar since its launch date. For the past year, I have been reaching out to more natural beauty products + products that enhance my natural look.
Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara (&29.00) & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel (C$29.00) are clean, vegan and cruelty-free mascaras with plant base lash serum which adds more excitement for me. It visibly delivers longer and fuller lashes & brows immediately after application as well as you’ll see dramatic results after a period of time.

Strength & Length Serum-Infused Mascara formulas are super black and formulated with Red Clover Flower + potent peptides that help lashes look healthier and longer with fewer fallouts. Although I love the full and bulky lash look yet this one really separates out the lashes nicely and evenly yet you can layer the lashes using the back of the applicator for a fuller and bolder look.

The brush itself is quite interesting, it’s designed the way that you don’t need to wiggle the lashes. I love how it brushes out the lashes individually while you can build up the look by adding more layers.

Strength & Length Serum-Infused Clear Brow Gel sets brows nicely in place with a lightweight gel formula that provides natural-looking bows with fullness. It also comes in a tinted formulation that adds more dimensions to the brows. It’s been quite some time since I have done my brows professionally and I have been plugging out here and there. I am looking forward to springtime and wanted to grow my brows fuller before I go to my brow stylist.

It has been almost more than 4 weeks since I have been using both the Mascara & Brow Gel and yet I still have to use another 4 weeks to really see the results which I will update you on soon.

Bottom line I loved both the new additions, knowing that they are formulated with ingredients that will have a strengthening and lengthening effect on my lashes makes me more excited. I have already seen a good transition to fuller and longer lashes since I have started to use them. As well as they perform quite well with good lasting power.

Clean Beauty Guide

As much I love to wear and use beauty products, I gravitated towards clean beauty products more knowing that it’s gentle, safer and designed with non-toxic ingredients.
If you think of clean beauty products as CLEAN then you should know that there isn’t such a thing as clean beauty products. But what the natural or clean means that they’re much safer and are not formulated with the harshest chemicals like Parabens, Sulfates and etc.

I do try a wide range of skincare products when it comes to testing or to help me with different issues as I age. but I am always very particular about what I use on my body. There is a number of clean beauty products that really impressed me with their performance. Here is a list of Clean Beauty products that I used (many are in my current skincare routine) and they’re quite effective.

Beauty

When it comes to complexion products it’s really hard to find a clean product that would work the best. Beautycounter is one of the brands that really bring CLEAN products and they worked done an incredible job to meet the requirements of clean beauty products. The Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer and All Over Bronzer from Beautycounter work nice and I have been a lover of the BAREPRO Longwear Powder Foundation & Mineral Veil Talc Free Setting Powder from BareMinerals and they are the best base that you can get while it’s safe. As many of you know I love wearing mascara probably one beauty product that I wear all the time and I recently was introduced by the Bite Beauty Upswing Full Volume Mascara just a couple of weeks ago (reviewed here) and I am IMPRESSED! it works really nice and gives that full volume effect to the lashes. Strength & Length Serum-InfusedMascara from BareMinerals is another amazing formula that I discovered just recently review to come. Burts Bee’s Defining Eyeliner comes in a great range of colours and with good lasting power. I also like the Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Matte Lip Crayon and Liquid lipsticks are quite nice too.
The number of lip products that I love to wear that give my lips glow, a natural tint and, a treat at the same time is the Glow Lip Pop Lip Balm from Glow Recipe and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15.

Skincare

My clean skincare products list are quite long so I tried to keep the roundup categorized just to simplify it for you.

Cleanser:

Double cleansing is essential for me when I wear makeup and through this blogging journey, I was able to find some amazing clean cleansers that work amazing. Starting with balm cleansers Beautycounter Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm & Glow Recipe Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm & Makeup Remover are probably the best clean balm cleansers I have used. And when it comes to gel texture cleansers that work great I love the Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser & Ole Henriksen Truth Juice Daily Cleanser. They really clean the skin deep and looks fresh and soft.

Moisturizer:

When it comes to moisturizers I have a tone of preference for the fact that I love to layer my moisturizers. Here I am sharing everything from soft gentle toners to thick moisturizers that are safe. You can literally get anything from Fresh beauty and it’s all CLEAN. But few that work really nice on the skin are the Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence, Lotus Anti- Aging Daily MoisturizerLotus Anti-Aging Night which covers your entire daily skincare routine. I have used The Dewy Skin Cream from Tatcha which is really nice and lightweight which I prefer to wear during the summertime. And for the winter season, I loved the Glow Recipe – Banana Souffle Moisture Cream which is so rich yet gets into the skin immediately. And for the body, I love the Jouviance Hydractive Coconut Melting Balm. I also use it on my kid’s body.
The Dewy Skin Mist from Tatcha is one of the mists that immediately makes your skin glow + Glow Recipe Watermelon mist is super refreshing.

At the same time as a Clean Beauty + Korean Beauty lover I just found the new brand that is now available in Canada calls SOROCI and I been loving their Calming Moisturizer for giving my skin that break it needs.

Treatment:

A couple of skincare treatments that I do for my dry skin regularly is very clean and gentle. I have been loving the Glow Recipe – Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops on a daily basis to brighten my dark spots and some discoloration I have on my skin. Many may find it slightly harsh but it is working great on my skin. My Monthly facial starts with Ole Henriksen’s PHAT Glow Facial Mask that I absolutely adore (fully reviewed here) it exfoliates and brightens my skin. And my weekly masking treatment during the wintertime that I do for my skin and my under eye area the Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask & Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask

Fragrance

You all know I love a clean fragrance Fresh Beauty has some amazing clean and fresh clean scents> I have it in Rose Morning and it’s one of my favourite Parfums. I spray it on my praying scarves after I wash them and fold them inside my praying mat. I absolutely love the fresh and clean smell of roses every time I pray.

Cle de Peau | Radiant Fluid Foundation Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

I get super excited when I find a new base, especially when it comes from Cle de Peau Beaute. This time they launched Radiant Fluid Foundation Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen (C$174.00 for 1.1 oz.). This is a soft matte liquid foundation that offers a nice radiant finish with skincare benefits to smooth and refine skin’s texture. It’s a medium coverage that looks natural on the skin while gives a nice radiance and glow to the overall complexion.

It comes in 24 shades to cover all skin tones, which I found carries different tones. The formula is lightweight and adds a soft-focus effect on the skin. It also refines pores and smooths out any imperfection over the long term use. The formula looks fresh on the skin and doesn’t feel dry at all.

It is formulated with a Skin-Empowering Illuminator and Light-Empowering Enhancer which helps the skin on the surface and beneath to amplify radiant finish and to defend itself against different types of stress for radiant skin. The formula is designed to feel comfortable, give out a natural and radiant finish with good lasting power.

I received the foundation in two shades (EB10 & O30). I found the EB10 was a close match but slightly light but I can definitely work it out on my skin. While the O30 was slightly darker with an orange undertone. I felt the foundation on my skin a bit dry but considering it for the driest month of the year, it’s going to wear really nice on a summer day.
It set very well on my skin and I didn’t need a powder to set the foundation plus a touch-up is required after 6-8 hours of wear (I do touch my face a lot).

I have been a true lover of their Radiant Cushion foundation (reviewed here) for its performance and radiant finish while it covers me with my daily SPF I need summer day and easy reapplication while on the go.
I found this won’t replace my Radiant Cushion Foundation for my daily use for outside but I can say that this would be a new foundation that I will be reaching out for my night looks (just for its SPF). You can now find this foundation at Saks Fifth Avenue.
