Element Vegan Cosmetics Loose Powder Review


I recently was contacted by the new brand Element Vegan Cosmetics about trying their Loose Powder, I was intrigued as I'm more of a pressed powder kinda girl. I do own and have used loose powder before obviously, but I used loose powders more when I was in college whilst doing my makeup training assessments. 

These loose powders are cruelty-free which I'm sure you know by know, I'm a huge fan of cruelty-free beauty products. There are 4 shades to choose from - Quartz, Amethyst, Sunstone and Labradorite and they are £16 each.

 I chose the palest shade which is Quartz* to work with my pale skin tone.

I've been using this pretty much every time I've worn makeup over the past week and a half and I'm really liking it. I've been using my trusty Spectrum A01 Domed Brush when applying the powder and it's been a dream to work with. I'll admit, I still find loose powders pretty messy and with me being so clumsy it isn't a great mix (lol) but this powder is very finely milled and it's so lightweight, your skin feels as if it still can breathe. It definitely keeps my makeup in place for a good amount of hours before needing a touch-up - I would say probably around 6 hours, which for me is really good considering I do have oily skin and the shade matches my skin perfectly.

Also, in case anyone reading wants to know the ingredients of the powder here they are - 
Mica, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Sea Mays (Corn) Starch, Silica, Zinc Oxide, Retinyl Palmitate, Methicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

Overall I'm impressed and I'm definitely going to be continuing using this. I like the packaging and it's a great size for travelling too. If you're interested in picking one of these up for yourself then you can click here to head on over to the Element Vegan Cosmetics website.

  1. Thank you for doing a post on Vegan items!!! I do not think there are enough! Great post xx

  2. This sounds like a great product! The price is good too, which makes it a winner for me lol and your photos are gorgeous too :) x


  3. I also go for pressed powders more often as I find I manage to get loose powders everywhere but this sounds like one that might be worth trying and the price point is definitely a winner!

  5. Oooh, this powder sounds dreamy! And how lovely that it's vegan -- though I really can't fathom why a loose powder wouldn't be! Why on earth do cosmetics companies put animal products in when they could just as easily do without??


  6. This product looks so dreamy. I'm in the process of trying to change all the products I'm using over to vegan, and this is one I will definitely be purchasing! Also the pale aspect hugely appeals to me. We pale girls have got to stick together!
