Osmosis + Colour Makeup Must-Haves to Covet | Review and Swatches

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I have been quite impressed by all of the products that I have tried from Osmosis Skincare and Osmosis + Colour Makeup, and I was elated to have the opportunity to try some new and new-to-me products from this covet-worthy brand. The changing season is always a great time to reboot skincare and makeup picks, and I have found all of the featured products perfect for the Autumn weather. 
Osmosis + Colour Performance Wear Satin Foundation in Natural Light and Golden Light ($48.00 for 1.2 oz. from Osmosis): Osmosis + Colour recently launched a new satin foundation in 5 shades that are vegan and gluten-free. This lovely new addition to their wealth of beautiful makeup and skincare products, has a lightweight silky texture, it blends to perfection, it offers buildable coverage. it lasts all day long, and it remains true-to-color. It has a beautiful natural finish without looking in the least bit artificial. It neither settles into fine lines, nor does it emphasize pores.

Known for incorporating skincare ingredients in their makeup, this new foundation offers skin plumping, wrinkle and line soothing properties that improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin. Among the ingredients used, is the anti-aging Dermaxyl, that is known to stimulate "cell communication and then repairing age related skin damage." Furthermore, Hyaluronic Acid offers deep hydration while plumping fine lines, and skin is left soft, smooth and refreshed. It is worthy to note that it contains no fragrance, and will therefore pose no problems for people with sensitivities to fragrance.

I am incredibly impressed by this formula, and love the way that it looks and feels on the skin. My only hope is that Osmosis adds far more shades since there are only 5 from which to choose.

I have two shades, Natural Light and Golden Light, and can wear both on my skin tone. Natural Light is slightly more peach in tone, and Golden Light has a slightly yellow undertone.

According to Osmosis,

Our silky-smooth Satin Foundation provides long-wearing, buildable coverage with a lightweight feel on the skin. It features calming chamomile to promote anti-aging and hydration while smoothing and plumping the skin to deliver a flawless, rejuvenated look.

Osmosis + Colour Pressed Base Mineral Foundation Beige Light ($44.00 for 9.6 g. from Osmosis and Dermstore): If you prefer pressed powder mineral foundations over liquid and cream formulas, then you will be quite impressed by this semi-matte, non-caking formula that neither settles into pores and fine lines, nor does it dry out the skin. Unlike many powder mineral foundations, that can feel drying, tightening and heavy on the skin, this one does not. It offers buildable coverage, it feels like a second skin and it offers light hydration. It contains an SPF 27+ protection, is water resistant and lasts through a workout. It contains no detectable fragrance.

Osmosis + Colour Water Resistant Brow Gel in Brown ($25.00 for 4 g. from Osmosis and Dermstore): This fantastic brow gel is water-resistant, smudge and budge-proof, and once it sets it lasts all day long. Furthermore, it neither flakes, nor does it fade, and it won't come off until you remove it at the end of the day. It comes in an innovative little pot with a built-in angled brush that stows away in the elongated lid.

According to Osmosis,

Osmosis + Colour Eye Pencil in Black ($25.00 for 1.2g  from Osmosis and Dermstore): Finding an eyeliner pencil that doesn't migrate or transfer can be quite a feat– especially for people with oily eyelids. While I do not have oily lids, I do still find that many creamier formulas end up smearing by the end of the day, but I have found this formula melt-proof and smudge-proof without being too hard that it pulls and tugs on the eyes. The water-resistant formula is very long-wearing, and yet the consistency is creamy and soft enough to effortlessly glide across the skin while depositing color evenly.

According to Osmosis,

    1. They really do have great formula, but they definitely need to increase their shade range from the lightest to the darkest shades.

  4. I'm wearing the foundation today (and yesterday and the day before etc). It's not light enough but when adding white foundation mix-in I love the finish. Osmosis has some great color products I agree.

    1. Same here! I have been wearing it all of the time. It's good that you are mixing the white foundation to customize your shade. I really hope that they add a lot more shades so that they have a wide range from the fairest to the darkest hues so that far more people could enjoy this lovely foundation!
