This is a fairly pigmented lip liner made by Zuii Organic. I’ve never used Zuii before and I have to say, it’s holding up nicely as a lip liner. Then again, I’m not as demanding in my criteria for this type of product. It just has to go on smoothly and last a decent amount of time. That is exactly what Zuii’s lip liner does. Though I have to say, I was disappointed that they only have four colour options. I do hope they expand this in the future. If you know of the colour profiling system I would recommend the Berry colour for Winters. It’s a nice deep berry red colour with hints of purple in it. The only complaint I have about this lip liner is that the cap easily comes off. It’s quite loose and if I had this in my purse I would worry about the cap coming off and marking up the inside of my purse. I wouldn’t recommend this particular lip liner to be used while traveling with because of the cap problem. It’s also quite pricey for a lip liner. You can get a lip liner with toxic ingredients for less than $10.00 usually. I’m not sure if it’s standard for eco-friendly lip liners to be pricey as this is the first time I’m replacing mine. As for accessibity, I haven’t found this lip liner at a Canadian etailer (online retailer) but the brand does seem to be available in the USA as well as as in the UK, Australia and Asia. Check out their store locator below for more details.

Just looking at it, you would think this concealer pencil looks too yellowish to match my skintone. But when I put it on, it disappears into my skin so perfectly. I like to use this concealer pencil as a final touch up. Anything that my mineral foundation doesn’t cover (like stubborn blemishes) will be covered up by this highly pigmented and thick concealer. Since I’m moving towards using less makeup, this is the perfect product for that transition. It covers up my under eye circles amazingly while still looking natural. It’s like a magic eraser! There are some coconut oil derivatives in the ingredients which so far haven’t caused me to break out. But I’ll have to see if that’s still the case in the long term. The cap on this concealer pencil is very loose, just like the lip liner. It’s a good thing I don’t travel with it. This product is scentless. I would consider purchasing this again. I haven’t found this at a Canadian etailer (online retailer) other than Zuii Organic. But if I do find one, I will update the links.
