I was first introduced to Inika by the editor and Chief of ‘Lifescape Magazine’, an eco friendly magazine who really know their stuff when it comes down to all things enviroment friendly. Inika is an australian brand that was born in 2006 and founded by its creators Miranda Bond and Jenny Williams.
Inika is one of the first brands of makeup to be Halal certified which I think is amazing. I think all Vegan products should have this flexibility as it would have so much more appeal.
Inika unlike many other mineral makeup brands do not use’ bismuth oxychloride’, a well known skin irrartant, Inika is also free from harsh chemicals, parabens, preservatives, fragrace, GM ingridients and fillers. Inika is also free from talk, an ingridient which is commonly found in mineral makeup brands. Talk is used in most mineral powders and mimeral foundations, its the main ingridient which actually put me off mineral makeup for life. When talk is used in mineral products you will often find that your face looks dry and caked, the talk will sit in the areas such as wrinkles and deep set lines which looks absolutly awful not to mention how much it dry out the skin!!
Here are some of Inika’s Hero products enjoy
Inika Mineral Foundation with SPF 20 £25
This light but sheer foundation is truly amazing, apply on to skin and it practically melts into the skin, its soft, moisturising and has the most amazing glow. It provides you with a flawless and faultless coverage whilst giving you that radiant glow. No talk means, no blocked, clogged pores or flakey residue. Try it out… you’ll be amazed at how fabulous this Mineral Foundation really is! Inika foundations are also suitable and provide fabulous coverage for those who suffer with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and scarring.
Inika certified Organic Lip Whip £14
Inika Lip Whips don’t only provide a burst of colour but also deep moisturisation. These yummy Lip colours glide on with ease, are non sticky and actually taste yummy… (go grab one so you can have a lick) Much better than ingesting a Lip colour which has harsh chemicals!
Inika Certified Organic Eyeliner £11.50
What a cool invention from Inika, an eye pencil with a sharpener on its lid, no rushing around in the morning because you have a blunt pencil with no sharpener in sight. Inika’s eyeliner’s are rich, thick and glide on with such ease and precision. Inika’s eyeshadow’s work in harmony with their eyeliner’s, select two totally different shades i.e brown eyeliner and green eyeshadow, apply the eyeliner on the base and lightly dab some eyeshadow on top.. this gives you such an amazing pop of colour… try it and see!! Inika Eyeliner’s are available in 8 different shades.
Inika Kabuki Brush £23
I first set my eyes on this Kabuki Brush when I was at a Christmas in July event! Rachel (Boudoir Pr) had to pry the Kabuki brush from my kung fo grip, I stood there talking to her playing with this amazing soft brush and even when it was time to leave I went back for another feel. The bristles are sooo soft that you’d think it was real animal hair, I have never known a synthetic brush to be so soft!
Mineral Bronzer – Sunkissed approx £20
Inika brings us this versitle light bronzer. Apply to contour cheeks and compliment your foundation or dust over the whole face for a lovely sheen and glow. A beautiful colour that suits all
In all a very impressive brand who are Halal certified, Vegan certified and are 100% cruelty free. Inika do NOT test on animals and all boxes and packaging is made from recycled materials.
