Here are my thoughts on Hynt Beauty, formally known as Christopher Drummond! I remember my first thought when I got into Green Beauty; I was worried about how I was going to cover the circles under my eyes! One of the first products I found out about was the formally known Christopher Drummond concealer. I can say I am elated to have found their company, and to find something that worked so wonderfully. But it's not all in the makeup, remember that! If you are taking care of your skin and eating a well balanced diet with a lot of water, you are probably not going to have to use concealer that much. Or, that's what I found to be the case. My dark under eyes have almost diminished now that I have taken such good care of my skin.
Everything except their mascara is vegan(bummer, we need more vegan mascaras). Their line is completely natural, gluten free, and free of all chemicals. They carry a pressed powder foundation, eyeshadows, eyeliner, blushes, bronzer, lip gloss, about to be released vegan lipsticks, and more.
This is what the Discovery Kit looks like, plus a couple of extra samples there.
The Light Discovery Kit: ($49.00)
Comes with Velutto Powder Foundation in Light and Medium Beige
Duet Concealer in Light
Deluxe Sample of Finale Finishing Powder
Deluxe Sample of Lumiere Radiance Boosting Powder
Vegan Mini Flat Top Brush
Hynt Beauty Clear Bag
Here pictured from wrist down is the foundation swatches: Velutto in light beige, Velutto in medium beige, and then a combination of the two. My face is much darker right now, so I mix the two to get the combination. It is a perfect match for me!
Ingredients for the Foundation Powder: Sericite, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxides, Zea Mays(Corn Starch)*, White Kaolin Clay, Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender) Oil*, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil*, Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot) Oil*, Eugenia Caryophyllata (Clove Bud) Oil*, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Extract*, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil*, Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Oil*. May Contain: Mica, Ultramarine Blue.
What I think of the foundation: It goes on extremely smoothly. The powder is finely milled, and makes for a perfect application. This is the first foundation that I have used which did not leave me patchy! Absolutely amazing. It is a light to medium coverage, which is what I prefer. I like to actually see the skin I was born with when I wear makeup. But that's just me. I do have to use a primer beforehand, as my face is super dry.
Pictured from wrist down: Lumiere Radiance Boosting Powder, Finale Finish Powder, Alto Matte Blush Apricot Sample (Note that these are to be sheered out, this is the swatch at full volume) The Finale Finishing Powder goes on for a mattifying, pore shrinking, line erasing, touch before the boosting powder. The Lumiere Radiance Boosting Powder gives the most beautiful finishing touch! It gives you a golden dewy look. I have never been able to find a finishing powder that can give this effect. The finishing powder is probably my favorite product, besides the concealer. The sample of the of the blush is a little too orange toned for my skin, but I can pull off a sheer bronzing effect with it.
Here is a swatch of two concealer shades. From wrist down, Duet Concealer in light, then medium.
The formula of the concealer is a bit too dry for my liking. I prefer their other one from when they were Christopher Drummond.(I was told they are the same formula, and it just needs to loosen up) The only way I found I can apply it with the best results is with my Real Techniques moist blending sponge. It still has amazing coverage though, and that's why it is still one of my favorite natural products.
If you watched my video on YouTube, you will know I agree with their application tips. I tried all different ways, and these steps give you the most out of the products. Overall I love the Hynt Beauty Discovery kit! This has become my favorite loose powder foundation routine. The ingredients are amazing. A lot of the ingredients are organic as well, which I would prefer from a company.
Have you guys tried Hynt Beauty?! What are your favorite products?
