Happy Wednesday Friends!
This is crazy! I am blogging 2x this week. I should've included this in my last post, but I decided to give Crunchi it's own blog. For those of you who don't know what Crunchi is, its a new makeup line dedicated to giving you toxin-free makeup.

- To be smart. To be conscious. To be beautiful. - Taken from their site here - Crunchi
I tried Crunchi about two months ago and promised everyone a blog on it, to let them know what I thought about it! So here's my full review and pros and cons. I will preface this by saying * I do not live a Holistic lifestyle and have never claimed too. I have a dear friend who sells these products and wanted to try them to see how they work. After doing the demo, I was impressed, and bought the products posted above, to see how I would like them after a month or two. Since I am in the beauty industry, I like my makeup SUPER heavy, so a lot of these products will work if you like conservative/natural look when it comes to makeup. Most importantly, If you are living that lifestyle everyday these products could definitely work for you.
Starting from Left-Right
My Alibi Concealer - Pros: Full/Medium Coverage, Lasts about 4 hours on me, and when covered with the translucent powder, stays on a little longer. Cons: I am currently back to using my "Heavier Concealer" - I'd give this a 5/10 coverage
I am still using this brush and love it! It's great for any and all of my foundations and I like the consistency when applying with it. 10/10 Coverage
I used the foundation in shade Light-02, it was still to dark for my face, and I tried to mess with it/shake it, to make it a little thicker, but unfortunately due to the medium coverage (even though it says full) I am not using it any longer. It is a great wear for me on days when I'm feeling more natural and a little darker from the sun. So a great option for natural "not caked" looks. It smells great too! 6/10 coverage
I used this for an entire month and love the smell, but for me, I'm back to using my old primer, I don't think it was covering or filling my pores enough with my old foundation, so I am currently using my previous thicker primer. Again, I think if you use the primer the way it's intended with their line, the makeup does stick to it a little better. (Just not enough coverage for me) - Its all preference. Ha! 5/10 Thickness
I love this finishing powder and I'm still using it on a daily basis! Its great for setting everything in and not to heavy... (haha finally something that doesn't need to be to heavy for me) For finished powders, I really like a light and airy feel since I wear everything else so heavy. 10/10
My conclusion, I am about as picky with my full coverage makeup as I am with what I eat. (Zach hates how picky I am when we go to dinner) not even in a healthy way, I just have so many dislikes and likes when it comes to food, haha or even makeup for that matter. Does that mean my opinion is always correct? No, but it means that it's just my opinion. I have several friends who love the way Crunchi makes their skin feel, the smell, and also the coverage. They also live a holistic lifestyle, and I unfortunately do not. (I love all the bad toxin things for my hair and skin) I probably always will and that's just me. It may change when I have little ones of my own to consider, but for now I will stick to the toxins. (Feel free to judge)
