Did you know that I’m just about to switch from full-time worker bee to full-time stay at home mom? Oh yes, indeed! I’ve been thinking about the fact that I don’t want to stop wearing makeup just because I’m not necessarily going anywhere for the day. But I think I might have my hands rather full on some days, and won’t have time for the full makeup routine.
I’ve found a product that I think it pretty nifty, and I’m excited to tell you about it. Check out Go Natural, the all-in one cosmetic! This is a powder that is designed for most every skin type and color, and the website claims that it can replace the following makeup: concealer, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick. Woah!
I’ve been trying out this product for a few weeks, and here are my thoughts. First and foremost, I do think that the shade of the product is a little bit tricky for people with very pale skin (and that would be me). You need to apply this product EXTREMELY lightly in order to not look a bit orange. I found that if I blend the powder a bit down my neck, that also helps. But I have to apply it so lightly that I find the overall coverage to be a bit lacking. If I had less pasty skin, I imagine that I could apply it a little bit heavier, and achieve the ideal look.
The brush that comes with the set is pretty cool. You just adjust the height of it depending on how you are using the makeup (for example, you’ll have it at its fullest point for applying foundation, and then you draw in in a little bit for blush, a little bit more for contouring, etc.). I will say that the overall quality of the bristles could use some improvement. I find that one or two bristles fall out every time I use the brush. Maybe that’s because I’m putting the makeup on so quickly? Not sure.
With that said, however, I still find the product to be useful for me. It is the product I grab when I have all of 30 seconds to throw on some makeup. I will be using this in the mornings before I go to Pilates classes (because I will be making those 6:45am classes, gosh darn it!) or if I’m running a quick errand. I’m just too much of a Southern gal to go anywhere without a stitch of makeup on, but I also don’t have time to get all dolled up every time I go anywhere. Go Natural definitely has a place in my makeup bag!
