Review/GIVEAWAY: Vani-T MakeUp & Tanning Products!


Vani-T: Eco-Glamour at its best

Hello, beauties! Today's post is all about Vani-T products. I was introduced to this South Australian company in February at the Bloggers United Event held at the Seawall Apartments in picturesque Glenelg. As soon as I entered the room and saw the gorgeous display of Vani-T products, I was immediately impressed, just from an aesthetics viewpoint. The packaging of these products was some of the most eye-catching and lovely I'd ever seen! Sparkly faux diamond jewels adorn the lipsticks and a pretty holographic design features across the range. I love anything that sparkles!

Vani-T are all about Eco-Glamour, a fusion of purity, ethics and glamour. A proudly Australian company, Vani-T products are natural and organic, rich in vitamins, minerals, active ingredients and botanical oils and contain no clay, talc, sulphates or parabens. None of the products are tested on animals. The CEO and Founder, Tania Walsh, is passionate about beauty and very conscious of creating ethical products that look good and are good for you. Keep reading, guys, because I have a Giveaway you won't want to miss!

I've been trialling some of the makeup products received in my Goodie Bag, the Lipstick in La Femme* and the Mineral Colour Crystals in Swiss Chocolate*, along with another lipstick I was kindly sent after the Event, in the shade Scandal*. You can see in my swatch photo the products are highly pigmented and the shades look so pretty!


Swatch time!

Both of the mineral lippies are very creamy and comfortable on the lips. The coconut oil, Vitamin E and aloe extract ingredients really provide a lot of hydration to the lips. And as mentioned earlier, the fake diamond encrusted lipstick casing is just stunning! This is the type of lipstick I'm proud to re-apply in public, because I want everyone to see my bling! Unfortunately Scandal has gone a little bit soft in the casing (perhaps due to the hydrating ingredients or maybe my handbag was in the sun?), so it's a good idea to only wind it up a little when applying. A Mecca Sales Assistant gave me the same tip when I bought an Hourglass lipstick, so I guess some lipsticks have a slightly softer and creamier formula.

Packaging is everything

Swiss Chocolate is from Vani-T's pearl mineral colour crystal range but they also have shimmer and matt finish powder eyeshadow products. In total, there are an impressive 40 shades to choose from! I'm glad I received Swiss Chocolate, because the shade is totes my cup of tea! I use a lot of nude, taupe, bronze and brown hues on my lids, because they suit my colouring and I can pull off a number of looks, through mixing and matching shades. I also find I complete a bronze/brown look a lot faster than when I muck around with a bolder colour! Having said that, I'm eyeing off Coral Reef Blue, Peacock Blue and Sparkle Rose, all of which look gorgeous (check them out here). I love using Swiss Chocolate in the outer corner and in the crease to create depth and elongate the eye. The pigment is fine and blends easily. You can also use them as eyeliners and damp for a more intense look, but I haven't tried that yet!

GIVEAWAY!

I'm not much of a self-tanner, so rather than let these products go to waste, I thought I'd give them away to a lucky Subscriber! I'm including a Mineral Lip Glaze* in the prize, so the winner can try something from Vani-T's beautiful makeup range, too. All of these products were gifted to me at the Bloggers United Event at the end of February and haven't been opened or used. I did photograph them though!
