Beauty Product Review: Jane Iredale “Feeling Alive” Collection.

Have you noticed that it’s starting to get gloomy in Perth? I’m pulling out my jumpers, turning on my oven to cook veggie lasagna (yay!) and wearing darker toned makeup. And while I’m all for a rich plum lip and darker tones on the lid to tie in with winter, wouldn’t it be a nice change if we wore makeup to lift and brighten the face during a cold day?

Jane Iredale has the answer in her new autumn colour collection, ‘Feeling Alive!’

For those who aren’t familiar with the lady and the brand, I’ll give you the run down. Working in conjunction with world-renowned plastic surgeons and dermatologists, Jane Iredale has developed a ‘skin care first’ mineral makeup line. Effective, yet gentle, Jane Iredale products are a favorite amongst beauty editors, makeup artists and the folks here at Wellness WA!

The ‘Feeling Alive’ collection was created to give your complexion a much-needed lift as we move into the cooler months. Incorporating bright tones for the eyes and dewy fresh colours for the lips, the products offer the wearer a fresh sun kissed complexion, even if you feel the exact opposite.

The kit includes:

Rose Dawn Bronzer – $90.00

The bronzer is split into four rose tones, which can be used individually on the cheeks or mixed together then swept across the cheekbones. The colours offer a subtle glow and can be used as a highlighter, on the eyes as eyeshadow and as a bronzer. The soft glow omitted from the powder is the perfect pick me up you need when it’s raining outside!

Eye Gloss in Pink Silk and Aqua Silk $33.00 each

Little tubes of bright colour seem a bit daunting at first but these Eye glosses are easy to blend and can also be worn as eyeliners. Just sweep a sheer amount across the lid for a subtle wash of colour or draw a thin line on the tip lash line for an interesting pop during a drizzly day.

Lip Definer Pencil in Pink $22.00

A pretty rose coloured lip liner, which can be worn with the two lip plumpers in the kit or worn on its own with a swipe of gloss over the top. Rose colours are great for your makeup collection as they can be worn by many skin tones and are a beautiful change from a nude lip for the office.

Just Kissed Lip Plumper in L.A. and Rio $56.00 each

With a slight scent of peppermint and just the right amount of shine, these lip plumpers are comfortable to wear and really do plump! The team from Jane Iredale told me that the Lip Plumpers contain ‘time released peptides which increase hydration and stimulate collagen synthesis through out the day’ which I translated to ‘comfortable, hydrated, plumped up lips throughout the day,’ success!

The Jane Iredale ‘Feeling Alive’ Pack will be available for purchase as of mid may and can be picked up through selected destination salons, spas and medical practitioners.

Does this pack sound like it would lift your winter blues? Do the eye silks sound exciting or scary to you? Have you used any Jane Iredale products before?
