SARYA Couture Makeup - Eye Shadow

Sarya Final 1.jpg

With the April showers finally in the past, flowers are beginning to bloom everywhere in London. While there are so many different colours around us, The Amazing Blog has been inspired by the colour pink. It is in the flowers and sunsets, clothes in shops, even cocktails at bars. There's a reason why millennials adore this colour and it's because it is no longer reserved for super 'girly' women, but can be embraced by everyone. This is where SARYA Couture Makeup comes in with its beautifully pigmented Italian-made vegan eye shadows.

The brand offers four different shades of eye shadow, but Pastel Me (a light rose colour) is what got us into the whole 'pink craze.' It is a nice rosy shade that has a smooth texture and diffuses easily into skin using fingers. The product creates a perfect base for other colours in an eye shadow look but leaves a subtle and pearlescent finish by itself. While it is sold as an eye shadow, we found that this colour looks particularly nice on the apples of your cheeks – as if you’ve just returned from a beach holiday. This versatile and pretty shade has all of the necessary components a quality eye shadow must have, but what makes SARYA Makeup’s product stand out are its slightly more unusual ingredients which include the likes of: Fossil flour, extracted from fossilized fragments of aquatic algae, Organic Shea Butter, rich in Vitamin A, E , F and  Karanja oil for its antibacterial properties.
 

Sarya launched in the summer of 2018 by Claudia and Teodora, who share the same passion for beauty and bio and do not consider it only a passing trend, but they see it as the future of the production for the entire industry. The pair has an ideology of ‘purity and transparency’. ‘Purity’ begins with products that have no added mineral oils, perfumes, or phthalates while ‘transparency’ is seen in all of the products being certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten free, and paraben free. On top of all this, the eye shadow has an organic formula of bio apricot oil for moisture and bio shea oil for essential vitamins A, E, and F. This eye shadow will not only provide maximum health benefits to your skin with its antioxidant-rich formula, but it also won’t make your spring allergies act up. Join the pink craze this spring and purchase the eye shadow here for €20. Or here Amazon UK . We just can’t wait to try more from this brand!

Keeping our lips moisturised becomes a 24/7 job in the long winter months, especially when it's bitter and snowy day like today. So we here at The Amazing Blog have found the perfect solution to all your lip care needs. SportFX Moisturising Lip Balm in Candy Floss will leave your lips soft and nourished with a touch of sweetness. This is a new brand of skincare, make-up and activewear created with all types of active women in mind. What makes this range different are their long-lasting formulas that are sweat-proof, won’t clog the pores allowing the skin to breathe. Best of all, every product is paraben free, packed with vitamins and enriched with SPF to protect the skin from environmental damage.


We have two must-haves on our lip balm checklist: it must leave our lips soft and seriously hydrated and it needs to have a delectable flavour that keeps us going back for another application. So when our lip balm smells as sweet as Candy Floss, we never forget to apply it. This balm is formulated with a rich blend of natural oils, shea butter, and vitamin complex C, E & F, which melts right into your lips.

Even if the sun doesn’t make much of an appearance this time of year, it’s still important to keep your lips protected from harsh UV rays that can cause damage, which is why we like that this balm contains SPF15. Like the rest of the skincare and make up range it is also paraben free and dermatologically tested, so we know your lips will thank you for that little bit of daily TLC. We like the Candy Floss flavour.  This range of SportFX Moisturising Lip Balms also come in five other favours: Raspberry Rhubarb, Birthday Cake, Candy Cane and Strawberries and Cream. Great to carry in your handbag to switch up from day-to-day according to your mood.


This lip balm will give you the feeling that you’ve just indulged in Candy Floss from the fair; however, without the sugar rush or the calories! You can purchase the SportFX Moisturising Lip Balm here for £4.99.

Shea Butter Body Conditioner – Peini

Peini is where science meets African cultural traditions. Peini is the result of a British skin care brand collaborating with a West African Farmer’s Cooperation. It is an organic and natural skin care range that focuses on incorporating naturally-occurring beauty enhancing ingredients into their beauty products. “PEINI” means gift in Dagbani, and we here at The Amazing Blog were very excited to receive the Shea Butter Body Conditioner.

This brand was created and introduced to the UK market by Sarah Nicholas-Kyei after many visits to her husband, Kwaku Kyei’s, homeland. Peini uses sustainable farming for their ingredients, hiring Ghanaian widows, orphans, women farmers to bring ancient skin care practices to the UK. The products are all toxic free, green and use naturally-sourced shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, palm kernel oil, sunflower seed oil that are indigenous to Ghana. These nourishing ingredients deliver natural, edible vitamins E, A, F and K. The results are beautiful products that are Paraben-free, SLS-free and are cruelty-free, which means that these products can be used on even the most sensitive of skins, including newborn babies.

The Shea Butter Body Conditioner is rich and thick, providing you with a deep and long-lasting moisture. However, we are pleased to report that the skin is not left sticky and coated. The body conditioner is absorbed almost instantly, so after applying you can almost immediately get dressed and begin your day. The conditioner improves skin texture and tone, boosts collagen production and the abundance of vitamins recover and defend the skin.

You can purchase this wonderful body conditioner for £8.50 from the Peini website here, or from Amazon UK here and trust us, this a gift you won't regret buying for yourself.
