The new makeup is no makeup. Increasingly girls are aiming for fresh, dewy looks that look as if they aren't wearing it at all.

Women are concerned about the harmful chemicals present in today's cosmetics. Skin irritants and allergens are a concern for many. Women are looking for green and eco-friendly options. Green beauty is a growing trend that isn't going away anytime soon. Cruelty-free products are also a growing interest for many consumers.

Honest Beauty addresses both trends by offering products free of harmful chemicals and synthetic fragrances. All products are hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. The products also give a natural look that lets each woman's natural beauty shine through. Honest Beauty products are beloved by so many women because they are free of many chemicals common in beauty products such as paraben and sulfates.

Honest Beauty reviews consistently prove the health and allergen-conscious women are flocking to Honest Beauty products. Honest Beauty reviews love the gentle formulations that don't force a woman to choose between health and beauty.

Honest Beauty is a fast-growing line of eco-friendly beauty products from actress Jessica Alba. Although celebrity collaborations have a bad reputation, Honest Beauty seems to have bucked that trend. The parent company, The Honest Company, has just reached a $1B valuation. The high-quality ingredients, modern packaging of the products, and harmful chemical-free promise seem to keep women coming back for more. Part of Alba's appeal is that she is a working mother herself, albeit with many more resources than the rest of us, who have struggled to find products she felt were safe for her home and her children.

Not to mention the products work! The Honest Beauty reviews all over the Internet send a loud message. Honest Beauty is worth making the switch, as customers' loyalty to The Honest Company's diapers has extended to styling products, skin products, makeup and more.

Honest Beauty is available at honestbeauty.com, Amazon.com, and at Ulta Beauty stores nationwide.

Ease of Use (5 stars out of 5)

The Everything Cream Foundation is extremely easy to use. It’s a creamy foundation that gives full coverage with just one application. There is no need for messy liquid foundations. It comes in an attractive metal case with a mirror on the back and inside the case. This foundation includes an applicator sponge. We loved that the sponge has its own compartment underneath with holes where it can air dry. This is much more hygienic and should make the sponge last longer.

Quality  (4 stars out of 5)

The quality exceeded our expectations. It provided complete coverage for our blemishes. We used our usual moisturizer first and got a smooth effect. Our skin looked so perfect we felt airbrushed.

Pros

  • Come with an attractive metal case with internal and external mirrors
  • Foundation goes on smoothly and evenly if the skin is properly prepped
  • Matched our skin well

Cons

  • Can be cakey if the skin is not moisturized first

Honest Beauty Luminizing Powder, Midnight Reflection, 0.35 Ounce
  • Silky, baked face powder gives your skin an instant, healthy-looking glow
  • Subtle shimmer brightens complexion and enhances natural color in one sweep
  • Formulated without talc


The contouring looks is big, but sometimes you don't want to get too invested in a trend. Try highlighting instead. Luminizing Powder in Midnight Reflection from Honest Beauty is the perfect highlighter for adding a subtle glow to your complexion

Remember this is a highlighter, not for use all over the face.

It comes in an attractive metal case with a large mirror inside. Choose your favorite brush and get ready to look fresh and new. Sweep it over your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and between your eyebrows for a luminescent look. Midnight Reflection powder is perfect for women who want to look beautiful and natural.

The Luminizing Powder is formulated without a scent and also contains no talc.

Ease of Use (3 stars out of 5)

Honest Beauty reviews say that Honest Beauty products give a fresh, natural look. On this point, we agree. The powder goes on smoothly and does what it says. It creates a shimmery, luminescent look, perfect for a night out on the town. We took off stars because sometimes we had to apply a large amount of product to get the look we wanted.

Quality  (5 stars out of 5)

We love the smooth, non-talcy feel of the powder. The case feels heavy and of good quality in the hand. The lack of fragrance is welcome as the powder does not over compete with our other cosmetics.

Pros

  • Gives nice highlights
  • Subtle, natural look
  • High-quality case
  • Honest Beauty offers free shipping and returns if you don’t like it

Cons

  • The look could be too subtle for some users
  • Not for overall use – just for highlighting
  • Does not come with a brush

Honest Beauty Creme Blush


Honest Beauty Creme Blush, Truly Exciting, 0.070 Ounce
  • Buildable, blendable blush
  • For a no-makeup look or a perfect pop of color
  • Infused with 7 botanical ingredients

Honest Beauty Creme Blush is a welcome addition to our makeup bag. Non-creme blushes are often drying on the skin and do not blend well. The color can look too fake. We tried the Creme Blush in the color Truly Flirting. We could apply the blush with our fingers, and it blended easily on our skin. It was not drying and added a healthy and beautiful glow to our skin.

The compact included a mirror which is great and had a smell of botanical berries.

Ease of Use (5 stars out of 5)

Using this product could not be easier. Just use your fingers to dab and blend along your cheekbones. Because it is a cream based product, the blush blended easily, and the color looked natural. No brush necessary.

Quality  (5 stars out of 5)

Like all Honest Beauty products, the Creme Blush is cruelty-free and free of synthetic fragrances. The packaging felt modern and luxurious. We felt good knowing the blush was free of harmful chemicals. And we felt even better than the product gave us exactly the look we were hoping for.

Pros

  • Beautiful modern packaging
  • Cream base was easy to use and to blend
  • Color looked natural

Cons

  • No brush or sponge included
  • Not for overall use – just for highlighting
  • Does not come with a brush

Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Sheer Chestnut


Honest Beauty Lip Crayon-Lush Sheer, Chestnut | Sheer Color & Subtle Shine with Coconut...
  • Sheer color and subtle shine in one simple swipe
  • Contains a conditioning blend of coconut oil, murumuru butter and shea butter
  • Lightweight and moisturizing

Sometimes we want something with sheen but not too much. Truly Kissable Lip Crayon strikes that delicate balance between a gloss and a lip crayon. It comes in a twist-up shape and provides subtle color and sheen. It moisturizes and conditions your lips with coconut oil, murumuru butter, and shea butter. Sheer Chestnut is a brownish/pinkish color that acts more as a nude than anything else. It's easy to pack and apply whenever you need a little shine.

Ease of Use (5 stars out of 5)

The Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Sheer Chestnut was completely easy to use. We really appreciated how it added color, moisture and shine in one easy swipe. We really enjoyed the twist-up feature and the chubby size, which made application a breeze even when we were in a hurry.

Honest Beauty reviews will verify the quality of this product is excellent. It has sheen and color and moisture all in one.

Pros

  • Sheer and subtle color
  • Fun twist-up shape
  • Moisturizing and conditioning

Cons

  • Color may be too subtle for some
  • More sheen may be desired for nighttime
  • Priced higher than many drugstore brands, maybe dissuasive to some

Honest Beauty Reviews - Conclusion

Our verdict of Honest Beauty is 4 stars out of 5. Honest Beauty reviews of this company show how much women love its products and how it has broken out of being just another celebrity makeup line. Honest Beauty gets major points for being cruelty-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and harmful chemical-free, We love the creamy textures of its foundations, creme blushes, and lip crayons. The colors are all blendable and always look natural.

We also love the modern look of the packaging and the weighty feel of its compacts. We think this could be a major draw for some women.

Overall Honest Beauty breaks out of the eco-friendly mold. Its foundations cover problem spots and blemishes well, and its blushes provide beautiful color. We have deducted one star only because we wish the line were more widely available. But it is breaking out of its tech-company mold slowly but surely as Alba comes into her own. We look forward to seeing what's next!
