Everyday Face | Gabriel Cosmetics Review | Zuzu Luxe Review

I love my daily makeup to be simple and fast. I also want to use products that don't irritate my skin and eyes. If you're like me, then you know how hard it can be to find makeup that doesn't harm your sensitive skin. I often have issues with putting products near my eyes and on my face in general, so I was very happy when I found these products from Gabriel Cosmetics and Zuzu Luxe!

Gabriel Cosmetics offers gluten-free, vegan and cruelty-free makeup options. The same goes for Zuzu Luxe, and from what I understand both companies were created by the same owner and can be found on the Gabriel Cosmetic Inc. website.

Gabriel Cosmetics Moisturizing Liquid Foundation

Gabriel Moisturizing Liquid Foundation

This foundation is silky, smooth and very easy to apply. It glides on the skin and is blends amazingly. I normally apply it with my fingers, but a sponge also works great to ensure it's even. I actually have oily skin, but I find that I can still get away with this foundation since it's not so moisturizing that it's over kill. I set this foundation with a powder, but I have always set my makeup with powder no matter what products I am using. I use the colour Pale Ivory (the lightest shade) and can be seen wearing this foundation in my blog picture.

This foundation really lasts on my skin. I apply it and don't have to worry about it. I usually apply my makeup in the morning and it up at lunch and at the end of the workday. That has always been the norm for me no matter what products I use. When I touch up my makeup I'm taking away excess oil, so I normally use oil-blotting tissues then apply some extra powder.

I've never had any skin or eye irritations from this product, which for me is just such a relief. Since my skin is so fair, I often have trouble finding foundation that is light enough for me (and not too orange). This foundation is by far the best match I've ever found for my skin colour!

I do want to mention that this product contains Retinyl Palmitate (they use it derived from kale). I know there is a ton of debate about the safety of this product. What do you guys think?? Do you avoid it? I think this article from Anne Marie Gianni sums up everyone's argument really well. Also, as I've mentioned before make sure you do your research before you let an ingredient freak you out and you choose to ditch it. The decision is up to you, but make sure it's an educated decision!

Zuzu Luxe Powder Foundation

Zuzu Luxe Dual Powder Foundation

This powder is smooth, natural looking and blends easily. It leaves my skin looking natural, clear and even. I usually switch to this for the hot months of the year since it helps keep my oily skin fresh and feels very light. I also use this to set my foundation for more coverage and for oil control.

I use the shade D4 which is the lightest shade. You can see me wearing this to set my Gabriel Foundation in my blog picture. It photographs well on the skin, too!

As mentioned above, I normally apply my makeup in the morning and touch it up around lunchtime and at the end of the day, usually using oil-blotting tissues and some extra powder.

I usually apply my Zuzu Luxe powder with the compact sponge it comes with. Really impressed with it, as it applies the powder beautifully. You can also use a large powder brush or kabuki brush which gives lighter coverage that's even more natural looking.

The compact this powder comes in functions well! I tote this with me everywhere and the powder has never shattered and the compact hasn't been broken. It is a great size and fits easily into my purse. The mirror inside is big enough to use when on the go, but I still prefer to use a full-size mirror if possible.
