Natural Makeup Not Just For Hippies: Dr Hauschka Decorative Range Lovely and Luxe

Dr Hauschka Decorative Cosmetics Range

Did you know Dr Hauschka have a makeup line? It’s been around for yonks but it hasn’t been widely available on these shores. (Read more here).  The core makeup range was launched a decade ago and fans of natural, cruelty-free cosmetics will be pleased to learn it was rolled out to all Irish stockists this spring.  Let’s have a wee look, then, shall we?

Dr Hauschka Summer Impressions Cool Breeze

First up, this lovely Summer Impressions palette is limited edition, so if you want it, you’ll have to run! This is Cool Breeze, which contains three gorgeous summery shades of golden peach, bronzey brown and a bright teal.  Pigmentation is medium, and these are soft and creamy with a little bit of shimmer.

A mini aqua eyeliner and two lip sheer lip creams are also included -  one’s a rose gold and the other is a rustier hue. €60′s the damage, which might seem steep but you get masses of product – the eyeshadows are huge -and a decent mirror, too.

Dr Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette Stone Colours

Not into shimmers? How about this  Eyeshadow Palette in Stone, a set of four matte neutrals? With soft cream, two browns and a deep grey, this is part of the core collection and costs €32.95. And it’s made with actual silk!

Also for eyes – and one of my favourite products from the line – is this double ended kajal eyeliner, €19.95, below. I love the colours,  and they apply smoothly with no dragging.

For the face, I have the concealer pen, €21.95, and translucent powder, €26.95, to play with. I can’t fault either of these – the concealer, shade 01, is too pale for me but works well under the eyes, and the powder is silky smooth and great for setting. The puff works well to pat the product on, creating a soft matte finish.

The rose gloss – one of two shades, the other being cherry – has a touch of shimmer and gives a pretty shine to the lips, with a comforting, balmy texture. There’s a pleasant herbal taste which stems from the ‘medicinal herbs’ and plant oils in the range. It’s €16.95.

There’s a lovely ethos at work here, using natural mineral pigments and organic plant extracts to enhance what nature gave you. But where some natural cosmetics don’t deliver, these do – which is why they’ve been used used on the stars and sets of Twilight Breaking Dawn,  Black Swan, The Devil Wears Prada, Gossip Girl, Sex and the City and more.

The website has the stockist info  – will you be checking out the line?

    I’m a bit meh about these. The price is steep too. I know its more ethically sourced and whatnot so that corresponds to the price. I just dont think ill part with my pennys for this!

    This is a bit off topic but I remember reading/watching something about Kristin Davis having a quite sensitive and reactive skin. I think her mua told that he uses La Roche Posay skincare on her. He also said that he has to be really careful about what he uses on her. So, I thought of her first when you mentioned Sex and the City at the end.

  • Makes sense it would be Kristin so, Gracie – good detective work, there! I am wearing all Dr H stuff today and I am loving the way the powder feels on my skin – super silky xo

    If you’ve sensitive skin this is brilliant makeup – I know a few people who swear by it

  • Nicola says:

    I love the skincare range. But I tried one of their eyeshadows in the past and really wasn’t impressed – it didn’t go on smoothly and it creased almost straight away. Maybe they’ve changed the formula?

  • ZsaZsa says:

    I know that the Dr Hauschka ranges have some lovely skin care products, so would be tempted to treat myself to some of their makeup, but the price is a little off putting even for that.

    I have very sensitive skin so this sounds good 2 me. Hello fluffyblog I did not know you were writing here till I seen your facebook today.

  • Emma says:

    Nicola, I wore the apricot and bronzey eyeshadows all day and night – over MAC’s Paintpot on Saturday and there was no creasing – did you wear it over a primer?

    Thanks Mandy, yep, I’m doublejobbing!

    I’ve only used their skin care, the rose day cream light is fabulous, but have the bronzing powder on my wishlist, its got some very good reviews recently
