Feels very nourishing and softening but relatively light on the lips - not as plush/heavy as Clarins lip oil, for example. I find it a pleasant medium between slippery and sticky. Mild floral/cosmetic vanilla scent. Affinity is a semi-sheer light-medium muted rose, not quite a dusty rose (not as cool/gray) but definitely not a bright pastel either, sort of a "tasteful" color? About the shade depth of my pigmented lips on my neutral NC/W15 complexion, just pinker. Very chic. I'm less fond of the packaging - the doe foot applicator is very hard with no give whatsoever like a disposable tester wand and the metal cap makes the whole thing somewhat awkwardly top-heavy to handle, even if it does stand up well on its own. But... now that I have this indestructible architectural piece, what else would I do with it, might as well get a refill. They got me good. :)

OK, wow. I love this. I love this! This is the perfect complexion product for me - very pigmented, weightless, wears like iron, looks like skin. Can't get over how imperceptible this is, neither matte nor dewy, perfecting but not inhumanly flawless. It reads like skin, only better, especially when used like a flexible concealer, just here and there where needed. Lightness is a good match for my neutral NC/W15 and helps cancel redness, though the slightly pinker Like Porcelain would probably be my exact match if only it were a little lighter. I don't usually wear it over an oil (I worry it might break down my sunscreen?) but I do make sure to moisturize very well and use a more creamy sunscreen rather than a dry one - it transforms sunscreen shininess into a healthy glow! Sometimes I very lightly dust my nose with translucent powder but not really necessary because I find the weightless cream-to-powder texture "sets" on its own, on my normal skin. And stays put. The first time I tried this, I impatiently ripped into the box right in my car and dabbed a bit on my face - it more than passed the car mirror test, covering but looking so skin-like that I kept dabbing more on in disbelief. And hours later, after an insane day of meetings, I got home and looked in the mirror and was shocked - still there, still the same, except for a little wear around my nose. I mean, my hair was crazy and my lipstick was uneven but my skin? It looked great. Like it had gone on some restful zen retreat without me, lol. So, yes, holy grail. The blushes too. I love this brand. To be honest, natural/organic cred isn't always of overriding importance to me personally when it comes to makeup, but I certainly won't say no to quality ingredients in an artful solid design (note the mirror is on the underside of the swivel lid) and solid performance and a down-to-earth, functional, no fluff rational aesthetic. It's definitely the Bauhaus of cosmetics - with a very contemporary eco slant.

This facial oil is divine. It is used as a primer for Kjaer Weis foundation and can also be used as your nightly moisturizer. It has a very light natural fragrance. I had it under my make up all day and when I took of my make up my face was glowing! You just need a few drops and it absorbs right in without feeling greasy and it gives a nice dewy finish - with or without the foundation! I also add some drops to the back of my hands because they get very dry in the winter. If you find a retailer, you might be able to get a sample.

This is the second refill that I have ordered of the Kjaer Weis mascara. It is the best natural mascara that I have found to date. If you want dramatic lashes this is not the mascara for you however I love the defined natural look that this gives. My preference is plastic wands which this has and I find this design helps to lengthen and separate my lashes beautifully. It can flake if you add to many coats or accidently touch your eyes but it doesn’t clump and it’s very easy to remove at the end of the day. The packaging is luxe and so easy to refill. I love Kjaer Weis eye products!

After I was really happy with two Kjaer Weis lip tints already, I had to try one of the blushes too. As I am very fair skinned, I decided for the shade "happy" - avery strongly pigmented coolish pink. (and as far as I know the most pigmented blush they have yet).I was a bit reluctant due to the price tag as almost $ 50 is quite a price for a blush. But the colour looked so lovely so I finally bought it. And I have to say I am really impressed. I own quite a range of blushes, including cream blushes and powder blushes and this one does stand out. It is very creamy and when applied it just looks very natural and spready so easily over the cheeks. Although "happy" is a very strong pink it never looks artificial and you can decide if you just use one soft layer which gives this natural healthy look, or two layers which give a beautiful bright pink look, still without looking caked.But what I love most about this blush is that you can also use it as lip tint. I use some bit of lip balm before and just pad a little of the blush colour on the lips and it gives the absolute perfect look if I have the same colour on my cheeks and in a softer shade, combined with my natural lip colour on my lips. This blush also stays in place for many hours. I wear it for my ballett classes and it stays on the cheeks and lips through two hours of training without problems. Although it has a hefty price tag I would recommend this blush, and I have to say in the organic segment it certainly is the best quality I have tried yet.
