Dr Hauschka Paraben And Lead Free Lipstick And Eyeliner | Swatches And Review

In this post I share swatches and reviews of some Dr Hauschka paraben free and lead free makeup products. If you have been looking for makeup which is less toxic or harmful and with good, natural and even organic ingredients, this post will be helpful. Even if you are not too fussed, you could still consider these items. Included in this post also, are the ingredients lists for each item as well as links to where you can get them.

In a recent post, I shared some Paraben And Lead Free Beauty products which I wanted to try in a bid to make more informed choices and gradually switch over to healthier beauty products. If you haven't already seen it, click Here to take a peek. With the discovery of harmful chemicals in more products in the beauty industry, there has been a push for the use of more natural ingredients and less toxic chemicals. When it comes to the said types of beauty products, one brand I recently discovered and would like to explore more of is the Dr Hauschka brand. I decided to try two of their Lipstick as well as their Kajal Eyeliner to see how they compare with paraben and lead containing competitors. Also just to see if I could adopt them as my new and go-to items.

Dr Hauschka Lipstick
The two lipsticks shades which I decided to try are #01 Soft Coral and #04 Warm Red. I chose these two because I wanted to try one lighter shade and one vibrant shade. This lipstick line comes in nine shades currently and they are all natural and organic! Yaas!! According to the brand, this lipstick line from Dr Hauschka is also free from synthetic fragrances, preservatives, parabens, mineral oils and PEG. Where possible, it is said that all raw materials used in this line of lipsticks are from controlled organic sources.

Packaging
To begin with, the first thing I love about these lipsticks are the packaging. A very gorgeous well thought of gold metal sturdy packaging with a lovely belt display of the brand name and logo as shown in the beginning of this post. 

Review
These two lipsticks as a whole are very moisturising to the lips. If you ignore the colours, it literally feels as though you are wearing a nice lip cream or balm, quite unlike the typical dry feel with a lot of lipsticks. Therefore, these lipsticks have a smooth texture. I found that when I first smacked my lips after an application, I got a small line across my top lip where a bit of the products had rubbed off. I found also, that this was generally because of the consistency and nothing that a bit of touch up could not fix. The ingredients listed below perhaps explains why this is, as majority of the ingredients are natural and oils. These ingredients give the lipsticks a bit of slip though they do last on the lips all the same. However, after a meal, a touch up may be required. Wearing these lipsticks, I did not worry about ingesting the product, not that I particularly enjoy eating lipsticks. It takes an extra weight off the shoulders when you don't have to worry about what or how much toxins you are ingesting. Therefore, for this reason, I definitely love these lipsticks and will keep using them.

Swatches
#01 Soft Coral
This shade is a light and soft coral pink shade as the name suggests. The pigmentation was not compromised and is actually very good for an all natural lipstick. It has a more smooth slip to it compared to #04. As a result, Soft Coral requires a little bit more product to give a neat even look. This shade also has a more shiny outcome .

#04 Warm Red
I found this shade to be very beautiful and my favourite of the two. The pigmentation is even better on this shade, very lovely, red and vibrant. It is not as shiny as #01 and seems more on the matte side. However this shade also has a smooth feel to it due to the natural ingredients. Out of the two, this shade lasted a bit longer and seemed to hold on better also. If you are looking for a natural red lipstick which moisturises your lips, definitely give these a try!

Dr Hauschka Kajal Eyeliner
The second beauty product I tried from Dr Hauschka is the Kajal Eyeliner. I wanted to try this because I was looking for a kajal eyeliner with good ingredients as my waterlines tend to feel uneasy with kohl eyeliners. I purchased #05 Black to try. According to the website, this eyeliner has a soothing effect from the witch hazel and black tea ingredients added. Also included are natural and organic ingredients.

Packaging
Again I love the packaging, continuing with the gold theme, some gold labelling. I particularly love the cap as it is something different from the mostly standard black caps.

Review
Well, lets see. As a whole, I do like this eyeliner because it is natural. It applies so easily due to the addition of two wax ingredients. It is indeed unbelievably smooth and I imagine this is due to the natural ingredients and oils. The pigmentation is actually quite good and I did not find that I needed extra application for a good look when first using it. However, I did find that the eyeliner does rub off a bit, although this can be good for eye looks which require some smudging on the lids or waterline. The website does advice the use of their liquid eyeliner, which you can get Here, in order to intensify the effect on the eyelid only. If you are more concerned about the ingredient types in your eyeliner, then I would recommend this eyeliner if you are happy to touch up or be more careful with your hands around your eyes. Again a bit of weight off the shoulders knowing this eyeliner has natural ingredients which won't be too worrying to the eyes.

Swatches
As you can see, the pigmentation again is very good and I did not need to apply a lot or press down too much to get some product. However, as you can also see on the right hand side, it does transfer a bit.

To Conclude, I love these products and would continue to use them taking the necessary precautions during the day in order to maintain my makeup look. Personally I am more for paraben free, lead free and natural ingredients than any thing else. If you are too, then definitely give these a try. However, if you are not, you can still try them and see if they might work for you. As everyone is different, these might look and feel different on you.
