I absolutely love trying out new makeup and experimenting with the latest
must-have products, I typically don’t like to look too ‘made up’. Effortless
beauty is my everyday go-to look, and over the years I’ve narrowed my daily
makeup routine down to a handful of products: foundation, mascara, eyebrow gel
(to tame my unruly brows) and natural coloured lipsticks. I do however
occasionally change it up and add new products to my routine, as it’s nice to
keep it fresh and modern and not look the same everyday. It’s also fun to try
out new products because how else would we ever discover a new favourite? I
recently had the chance to try out some products from Genie Beauty Products,
which offer a range of beauty products designed to provide instant and immediate
Nutratanicals Antioxidant Foundation is a sweat proof and water proof
powder foundation that provides a flawless and natural coverage. I tried this
out in the shade 03 Light, which is a light yellow based shade. It was a pretty
good match for my skin at the moment, although slightly on the light side.
foundation itself provided a nice, natural coverage and it did a great job of
concealing some of my blemishes. I wore it during my plane trip to Byron Bay
and I was really impressed at how well it lasted throughout the plane ride. My
skin remained shine free (I occasionally get oily around my nose) and my
blemishes weren’t noticeable. I also like how light this foundation feels on
the skin. I don’t typically wear powder foundations as I tend to get dry
patches around my forehead and chin, however the Nutratanicals Antioxidant
Foundation didn’t emphasise my dry patches, yay!

I also received the shades 05 Medium and 06 Medium Beige however I
found these slightly too dark for me. I’ve provided some swatches below, as
well as a description of each shade.
|From top: Nutratanicals Antioxidant Foundation in Medium Beige, Medium and Light. I think Light and Medium Beige work the best on my skintone; Medium seems to pull slightly pink on me.|
Light: Light shade with yellow undertones. Suitable for those with a light
Medium shade with pink undertones. Suitable for those with a medium complexion
with a slightly beige undertone.
Beige: Medium shade with a beige undertone. Suitable for those with a medium
complexion with strong beige undertones. This may also work if you have neutral
undertones (neither yellow nor beige).
|The Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend brush collection.|
Diamond are a Girls Best Friend brush collection is a set of five essential
brushes that come housed in a handy travel tube. When I saw these brushes I
was immediately won over by the glittering, blindingly bright diamantes on the
handles- so pretty and perfect for display! As for the brushes themselves, they
all have quite firm bristles which is perfect for makeup application. I used
the powder brush in conjunction with the Nutratanicals Antioxidant Foundation
and it worked really well in applying the makeup evenly across the face.
Have you tried any products from the Genie Beauty range?
