Recently we had the opportunity to try a foundation and a Lip Colour
from an Australian company called SCOUT Cosmetics.
About Scout Founded by Sylvie Hutchings from Sydney, SCOUT was born
from Sylvie’s desire to ‘bridge the gap between natural and
glamour and offer a healthier choice of cosmetics to customers. The SCOUT philosophy is summed up by there mission
statement, ‘modern - elegant - natural beauty’.
1. To respect women choices, needs and preferences 2.To offer women make that will enhance their natural beauty and be safe to use 3.Recognise that women are discerning and intuitive when making beauty care choices.
Sounds luxurious!! The first thing I noticed; You can actually see the light reflecting particles in the foundation! When you look at the foundation in the bottle you will notice a lovely shimmer in the product.
When you wear the foundation however the shimmer is only subtly visible, so you don’t look like you have painted your face with some sort of body shimmer from the 90s! (Don’t worry - we have probably all been there at some stage…). This shimmer in the foundation is probably my favourite thing about it- as it maintains the skins natural glow.
In terms of the consistency of the foundation, it is lightweight and smooth and non-drying. I’d say that it has medium coverage, but if you use it in combination with a concealer, you will have some extra coverage.
Overall, the SCOUT foundation is great and even more so because it’s Australian made! I’d be keen to try mixing the shades to find the perfect one for my skin tone!
So many shades to choose from, all made from a 100% Vegan blend. The SCOUT Mineral Lipstick is highly pigmented, which results in a deep
colour when applied to the lips.
An important consideration when choosing a Lip Stick, aside
from colour, is how it feels once it is on the lips. There is nothing more annoying thanwearing a lip stick that makes your lips feel dry and dehydrated.
The Mineral Lipstick’s from SCOUT contain, Shea butter, JojobaSeed Oil, Vitamin E and Organic Citrus aurantium dulcis (orange). These ingredients help to keep the lips nourished and moisturised. With so many colours to choose from, or experiment with, you are bound to find a shade that you will love.
