In love with: the Osmosis Colour makeup collection


A couple of weeks ago I went for a facial and received one hell of a compliment on my makeup in the form of the comment, “oh my god you are wearing foundation? I thought you jut had incredible skin”. This is most definitely the kind of reaction I am looking for when I go shopping for a new base as by day I’m fond the ‘no makeup, makeup’ look and like to look just like me - but a hell of a lot better!
One of my latest discoveries - and one that I’ve fallen in love with for a variety of reasons - is Osmosis Colour, the makeup collection created by the team behind Osmosis skincare. It’s a mineral-based collection, and to say that I’ve tried every mineral formula available would be an understatement, usually with mixed results. This collection however is a winner - virtually seamless with seriously natural looking coverage that never looks heavy or powdery or oxidizes as the day goes on, and packed with ingredients like Goji Berry and antioxidants to care for your skin as well as making it appear near flawless. Add to that zinc oxide for its soothing benefits and UV protection and the fact that pressed base foundations, eye shadow trios, and blushes come in refillable compacts and you have a serious contender for one of the best ranges out there. The Bismuth-free Pressed Base is a great place to start if you want to dabble in Osmosis as it was formulated for all skin types and is pretty much foolproof to apply. Natural broad-spectrum UV protection keeps the skin protected from both UVA and UVB rays, and the semi-matte finish suits everyone I know, and it can be layered as needed. You can follow application with the brand’s Mineral Hydration Mist to set it for long lasting wear too, and swipe on their impressive Age Defying Treatment Concealer, which is essentially a concealer and moisture stick in one. The moisture stick hydrates and plumps to soften lines and wrinkles around eye area and lips, whilst the concealer covers dark circles, pigmentation and redness on face and body. To make eye shadow applications last all day, you can also use Age Defying Treatment Concealer as a primer for the eyelids - magic!
