A little while ago I got to spend the morning with two lovely Italians from BioNike to discuss their Defence Color makeup range.
I know the brand’s skincare quite well, but had never tried any of their makeup.
I’ve been testing 5 of their products for the last month or so and am pretty impressed. Here are my thoughts…
Tone Evening Base
This is my favourite out of the 5. It evens out the complexion and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. It has a universal peachy tint that works on most skin shades. The texture is light and disappears quickly into the skin, leaving it looking fresh and healthy. It creates a perfect base for foundation and helps it last longer.
MAT-zone Mattifying Foundation SPF15 in Ivory
The formula is fairly thick, but spread easily and a little goes a long way. Even though my skin is dry, this worked wonders on my t-zone. The coverage is light to medium, but is slightly buildable should you want a bit more.
False Lash Effect Volume Mascara in Black
The brush is quite intimidating, but very effective in creating super-volume. The formula is longwearing and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. The false lash effect is intense, so I’ve been wearing this more at night than during the day. But if you’re a fan of big lashes, you’ll love this for anytime!
Colour and Shine Crystal Lipgloss in Bonbon
The formula is more creamy than glossy, but still delivers a great shine to the lips. This particular shade looks quite Barbie-like in the tube, but is quite pretty and natural on.
Deep Colour Lipvelvet in Cuivre
I just adore this neutral peach shade. Even though the finish is a rich velvet texture, formula is moisturising and nourishing.
