Pictures, review and swatches of Kjaer Weis organic cream foundation in Silken. I love this organic cream foundation - it actually does cover my melasma, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and vitiligo. Also featured: awesome samples like Vintner's Daughter serum from the Detox Market in Santa Monica

Kjaer Weis Organic Foundation & Organic Beauty Sample Fun at The Detox Market

I visited the Detox Market in Santa Monica specifically to test out Kjaer Weis organic foundation, and of course I walked away with this clean beauty makeup and a bit more. Online shopping for clean beauty – especially organic makeup – is very difficult in terms of finding appropriate color swatches and matches (hence, all…

Picture FitGlow Beauty Organic Vita Active Foundation in VF2 and Organic Vitamin C Cream - Super C Cream. Both are excellent for treating dark spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation.

FitGlow Beauty Vita Active Foundation and Super C Cream Review: Do they Help Dark Spots and Melasma?

FitGlow Beauty is a Canadian company that makes some pretty rockin’ fragrance free (hallelujah!) natural and organic skin care and beauty products. They are Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free (woohoo!) and stay away from lots of “bad” stuff like parabens, BHA, formaldehyde, phthalates and more. FitGlow Beauty Super C Cream Review I first noticed FitGlow beauty…

Pictures and Reviews of RMS Beauty Un Cover Up #11 is my favorite effective organic concealer for my dark spots and melasma. I lalso love RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer (better than Living Luminizer) and RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream.

The Best Organic Concealer for Dark Spots & Melasma, and Other RMS Beauty Daily Essentials

My first introduction to RMS beauty was their living luminizer a few years ago, and now I’m into most of their products! Besides being beautiful they are very nourishing and contain organic ingredients. RMS Beauty Un-Cover Up 11 Review – A Paraben Free & Organic Concealer or Cream Foundation for Melasma, Dark Spots and Hyperpigmentation I…

Picture and reviews of Farsali Unicorn Tears Essence and First Aid Beauty Superfruit Color Correcting Cushion. Both make decent make primers, but are they worth the price?

Recent Sephora Haul: First Aid Beauty Color Correcting Cushion and Farsali Unicorn Essence Reviews

We’ve been a bit busy lately and I’m majorly losing track of time…how long ago did I buy these colorful beauties? A few weeks? Almost 2 months ago? Hard to keep track, but I’m finally getting around to my reviews. Farsali Unicorn Essence Review – What’s Not to Love? I frequently scan Sephora’s site for…

Some of my BITE Beauty organic and natural favorites: the Agave Lip Mask in Champagne, High Pigment Pencils creamy lipstick crayons and the lip liner in 012 and matte lip crayon in Glace

The Best of Bite Beauty: High Pigment Pencils vs Amuse Bouche Lipsticks and More

I’m still mourning the loss (discontinuance) of Bite Beauty Buttercream lipsticks. They were so luscious and unscented! My BITE Beauty multisticks review has been so popular, I knew I needed to share the rest of my BITE Beauty collection. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Reviews and Swatches The Good: These beauties are high moisture, high…

Picture of Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Concentrate Foundation has a beautiful matte suede finish and covers my dark spots and upper lip melasma flawlessly

Marc Jacobs Remarcable Full Coverage Foundation Review for Dark Spots, Melasma and Vitiligo

If Kevyn Aucoin the sensual skin enhancer provides the best coverage for dark spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and vitiligo, Cover FX  (which also makes this a good alternative to Dermablend) and Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage foundation are close seconds. I’m very surprised Sephora doesn’t recommend this full coverage foundation more. I had a friend (who…

Paraben Free, Talc Free, Vegan and Non-Toxic Urban Decay Naked Palette Eyeshadow Dupes from Etsy

Yes, another post about Mother Bear’s Handmade small batch vegan, phthlatate, talc and paraben free products. I gushed over the custom NARS dupe custom blush Angelica made for me and her eyeshadows are just as good! I bought 6 eyeshadows with the goals of comparing against Urban Decay shadows to find talc-free dupes. Unfortunately I’ve…

Picture of my NARS Dual Intensity blush in fervor for years, and a cleaner version I had the Etsy Shop Mother Bear's handmade create a custom blush inspired by this NARS blush (that is better than NARS orgasm by the way). This custom blush has such great pigmentation!

Paraben Free, Talc Free, Vegan and Non-Toxic NARS Makeup Dupe Blush Review (Yay for Etsy!)

It’s been a very exciting weekend for me…on Friday I received a custom blush I had ordered from one of my new favorite Etsy shops: Mother Bear’s Handmade. Sometimes social media can be overwhelming, boring and annoying, but it can also inspiring, community-oriented and very helpful. I LOVE the PCOS and clean eating communities on…

Picture of Clean Beauty Swap: Use Coola Rosilliance Organic BB Cream Beauty Balm with SPF 30 instead of Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm. Both are Paraben Free Beauty Balms

Non-Toxic Beauty Swap: Replace Stila Stay All Day Illuminating Beauty Balm with Coola Rōsilliance Organic BB Cream SPF 30

The first illuminating primer I bought was at Target almost 10 years ago. I don’t remember the brand – it’s one they no longer carry – but I remember the tub was lavender (one of my favorite colors) and the primer was perfection: It wasn’t heavily scented and it provided the perfect opalescent glow under…

Kevyn Aucoin's The Sensual Skin Enhancer Review: This is the best full coverage foundation makeup and concealer for melasma, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and vitiligo. However it does have added fragrance and sadly it contains parabens so I don't use it every day.

The Best Full Coverage Foundation Makeup for Dark Spots, Melasma & Vitiligo: Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer Review

Here’s the thing: For over 2 years I’ve known about the best full coverage, long lasting foundation makeup for melasma and vitiligo. For me, it’s mixing two colors of Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sensual Skin Enhancer. It is a great alternative to thick full coverage makeup like Dermablend. But it is not without it’s flaws (and…

Josie Maran Vibrancy Foundation Fluid Organic Makeup for Melasma and Vitiligo

Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid Review – For Melasma and Vitiligo Coverage

I general like most Josie Maran organic cosmetics like the Argan Daily Moisturizer, and her Vibrancy foundation fluid is no exception. It’s a great formula but does it provide enough full coverage for the melasma and vitiligo on my face? Josie Maran Organic Vibrancy Foundation Review: The Good: Great color selection. Beautiful finish – satin…

Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation Review for Melasma and Vitiligo – Dermablend Alternative

A few years ago when I first started getting serious about finding full-coverage foundation makeup to cover the vitiligo and melasma on my face, I thought Dermablend cover creme was my only option. I would sample it but I couldn’t get over the thickness and the unscented scent. I did lots of researched and tried…

vitiligo and melasma concealer review - cover fx cream concealer picture

Cleaner Beauty Swap: Full Coverage Paraben-Free Concealer for Melasma and Vitiligo

In my decade of experience, MAKE UP FOR EVER full cover extreme camouflage cream is the best long-lasting, full-coverage concealer for melasma and vitiligo on my face. It has a lightweight yet full coverage finish and it lasts throughout the day. On their site, MUFE describes it as “An ultra long-lasting, oil-free, waterproof, concealer that provides full coverage…
