Natural Beauty Review: Kosas Cosmetics

Kosas Cosmetics review Indigo and Canary

I’ve written about lipstick on Indigo + Canary many times, but here’s a quick recap: It’s a tough product for me. I have super full lips and often feel like wearing lipstick makes me look clownish. But as I’ve gotten older (and, perhaps, my lips have gotten a little thinner?), I have started to feel like lipstick is the thing that makes me look — and feel! — pulled together. When I’m wearing lipstick, I’m doing the #adulting thing. I feel like a grownup. However, this whole uncertainty about lipstick has a side effect: It also makes me extremely picky. If a lipstick is too drying, it gets tossed. If it doesn’t have the staying power to last through a morning meeting, out it goes. (Side note: As the mother of a toddler, purging things from my home has become a big part of my self-care. Getting rid of stuff feels so good.)

Well, guess what, friends?! I had the chance to take four shades* from Koras Cosmetics out for a test drive, and I’m kind of in love. Read on for the full review!

New Calls for the FDA to Better Regulate the Cosmetics Industry

Library of Congress, Our new radium $5.00 permanent wave beauty

I can’t help it. Every time I come across a story in the mainstream media about the need to better regulate the cosmetics industry in the United States, I get a little bit excited. At some point, this has got to mean change is on the way, right? The more people who care about what’s in the products they put on their skin, the more people start to actively avoid ingredients that are already banned in places like Japan, Canada, and Europe … the more likely we’ll all have even more great, safe, effective products to choose from. Right?

Well, I’ve basically been giddy for the past week or so.

Product Review: 1000 Roses Color + Correct from Andalou Naturals

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Color + Correct Indigo and CanaryIf there’s one Korean beauty product I love most, it’s got to be CC cream. This beautiful little number does everything a BB cream or beauty balm does, but adds complexion-enhancing color correction. It’s essentially a foundation plus moisturizer in one. So if, like me, your skin isn’t quite ready to face the world with just a bit of moisturizer, and you need a little help to get your skin tone balanced and even (and maybe even cover a few blemishes), then a CC cream is your new best friend.

That’s why I could barely contain myself when I spotted Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Color + Correct on the shelf at Earth Fare, one of my favorite health food stores.
