There’s many reason to be excited about Reflections Organics.
A local Singapore makeup brand founded by the lovely Nerissa Low, it not only ignites some local pride (yay!), but it’s a makeup brand that is also good – free of harmful chemicals, the brand is natural/organic, vegan, gluten and cruelty-free.
Best of all: the products are actually really impressive. So it’s with my great pleasure to write this post today.
And I know organic and natural makeup can be less than impressive when it comes to pigmentation and staying power, but I didn’t find that here. Made in the USA, I’ve been testing a few of their products in recent months, and I already have a few favorites…
Anti-Aging BB cream S$72. Fitting with its “anti aging” name, this BB cream feels like a tinted serum, if you will, and glides beautifully on skin. The best part is, it’s not greasy or oily at all, nor did it feel like that or even get a hint of shine throughout the day, which was awesome. As with a lot of natural BB creams – like this one – don’t expect super high coverage, though. Coverage is very light and natural, but if you want more coverage, I recommend adding on their mineral powder foundation on top (especially if you tend to get oily) or after a layer of the BB cream, go over any needed areas with a concealer and blend. Either one will give a covered but still very natural look.
Lip Glaze S$39. I’m gonna put it out there: this is one my favorite lip glosses ever! The color I have, Ginger Spice, is absolutely beautiful – the perfect nude gloss – and feels super moisturizing and is long lasting on lips. Best of all, it’s good for you, so I don’t feel bad reapplying as much as I want.
Lip Butter S$42. This super pigmented lipstick lasted the whole day on a recent 9 hour gig (including lunch) with no reapplication. I love the colors – I have Wild Cherry, a gorgeous cool red, and Sweet Plum, a muted plum color – and I’ve been getting compliments on it too. I was very impressed with the pigmentation and also the lipstick had a more balmy feel to it, so it was super moisturizing and felt comfortable on the lips.
Eyeshadow S$42. As you may know, I have quite sensitive eyes so I am very particular with the eye makeup I use, and I have been experimenting on-and-off for the past few years with more natural eyeshadows. The color I tested out was Peach Morganite, and although it’s not really a peach, it’s still a great shimmery nude highlighter on the lids. Nice pigmentation as well and super easy to use, and I love that it’s talc free – a huge plus for me. I’d be super excited to see if they come out with more shades, especially matte shades.
Pressed Mineral Blush S$72. Mineral makeup usually comes in loose powder – Reflections Organics does have them too – but I’m usually not a fan of loose powder. They’re not bad by any means, but they just take more time. So I definitely prefer pressed products, and was eager to try out the pressed blush. And though it’s above my usual budget for blush, I still really liked it. It had great pigmentation, blended easily into the skin and it lasted well throughout the day.
To conclude, I definitely think you’ll find something you love at Reflections Organics, but if you’re stumped on what to try first, go for the lip products first. They are my absolute favorite of the bunch, and I know it’s only a matter of time before I add more of them to my personal collection! Congrats Nerissa on an excellent natural, organic products!
