SWATCH SERIES: testing Wild About Beauty's paraben free makeup

About Us page component.


Shopping for makeup can perk up a lunchtime desk-browsing or make a Saturday shopping spree a total joy, however it can also present many challenges and questions. What kind of texture do I want? Will this do what it promises? And most commonly, will this colour suit me? Getting the right foundation shade or a shadow to compliment your eye colour can sometimes be a bit of a minefield. So in order to help you become a savvier shopper when you're a guest at one of our Showcases or shopping online, we created the swatch series.
Over the last month we've be swatching colours from our favourite independent makeup brands, here at MyShowcase and blogging about each brand individually. This week, in the last of the series is Wild About Beauty - our go to brand for natural, skin-beneficial makeup. So, let's get to it.



With years of experience in front of and behind the camera, Louise Redknapp and makeup artist Kim Jacob seem like the perfect partnership for creating a makeup range. Made up of flattering natural shades and dreamy textures, Wild About Beauty's paraben free products are made for on-the-go women who want foolproof makeup, everyday. Swatched below are their sheer bases, muted blushers and suit-all lip and eye colours.

SHOP Sheer Glow Moisture Tint & Golden Skin Glow

Wild About Beauty's Tinted Moisturiser comes in three shades and gives a light-coverage dewy complexion. The darkest and slightly scary shade below is the Golden Skin Glow - a gel like bronzer to wash over cheeks and temples. Don't worry, it blends out easily though (see far left).

SHOP Multi Purpose Tint & Creme Blush
These cream tints add subtle colour to cheeks, lips and eyes and blend easily on top of your base colour. The nifty twist-up blush sticks make application even easier too! Simply dab onto apples of cheeks and pat with fingertips.

SHOP Eyeshadow Pencil Duos, Creme Eyeshadow, Powder Eyeshadow in Fern & Alana and Ultra Sheer Powder Blush
Making eye makeup quick and simple are the double ended Pencil Duo crayons in the suit-all shade of Charlie and jet black Kajal. The two neutral shade powder eyeshadows can be used on their own to add a subtle shimmer to lids or layered on top of the beloved creme eyeshadow, Edna to build intensity. Also in powder form are the three sheer blushes, Molly, Kitty and Lucy.
