Nanacoco – Affordable Brushes Worth Getting?

Nanacoco Professional Brushes

Affordable brushes that are high quality can be tricky to find. When it comes to beauty products, I can’t resist trying out new brushes. Having a high quality, and affordable brush can really make or break your finished look. I’m always looking for quality brushes that will apply my makeup beautifully and natural looking. I was excited when I was given the opportunity to try out Nanacoco Professional Brushes.

A Little About the Brand

I’ll admit, I don’t know much about this brand, but I love discovering new or new to me brands. They are one of the few makeup brands that have a beauty news blog attached to their website, which I absolutely love. It shows they’re keeping up with what’s going on in the beauty world while creating quality products.

The company continues to evolve and update its cruelty-free products to match the growing and changing beauty trends. They work to create iconic color cosmetics and high-quality, affordable brushes. They want to be a brand that inspires everyone to be the best version of him or herself, starting with a lipstick.

AirFair Brushes Review

I was sent the AirFair Angled Powder Brush and the AirFair Concealer Brush. The look of the brushes is sleek and sophisticated. They feel absolutely amazing. So soft and smooth. You can say they look and feel like luxury brushes, but they’re affordable.

The angled powder brush ($17.99) applies loose and solid powder perfectly. I like that it’s an angled brush because it makes applying the product evenly around the nose area easy for a precise finished look. Personally, I want my brushes to do the work, without making things difficult.

The concealer brush ($10.99) packs on product nicely. For concealer, I like to apply the product to my under eye area with the brush and smooth it out even more with my ring finger.

More about the angled powder brush:

  • 100% Synthetic fiber brush
  • Hand-cut shaped hair
  • Dense and soft hair
  • Cruelty-free
  • Newly innovated technology bristle allows better pigment pickup

Overall Thoughts

If you’re looking for new, affordable brushes to try, then I definitely recommend these. They’re super affordable, high-quality, and helps apply makeup perfectly. I already have a list of other brushes that I want to order and test out. In the past, I would recommend Real Techniques brushes, but I may have a new favorite affordable brush brand!

We Switched To Natural Hair And Beauty Essentials

I like to switch up my haircare products between natural and the name or store brands you may find at any retailer.  I recently switched my son over to a natural deodorant and he’s already using a natural shampoo bar and body bar. It was only fitting to switch to a natural shampoo bar for myself. We switched to natural hair and beauty essentials and we’re excited to share what we found!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I am always looking to simplify my life whether by organic clothing, food/cooking, beauty, fitness, health, and wellness. When I use natural shampoo and conditioner, I always like to keep a brand name to use at least once a week. Natural hair care tends to leave my hair feeling heavy and look greasy!

I don’t work out as much as I would like to. I also don’t take care of my skin like I should. When I do either one, I try to use the best products for oily and acne prone skin.

My face is so shiny and so finicky that only certain products can be used. I try to avoid products with excessive amounts of added oils and chemicals. At the same time, I also try to avoid face wash with over-drying properties.

What do you do when you want to scrub off oil, sweat, and dirt without turning into a scaly creature?

Natural Care For The Family

As a single mom, I am always on a budget. However, when it comes to beauty, I like to be picky with what I use!  A few months ago, I had to purchase a list of basic beauty essentials to send to school for my son, such as a comb/brush, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, etc.  They were going to work with the students on how to use these items, basic needs, and how to care for themselves! At the time, I needed to buy the items quickly, so I didn’t choose natural items!  After buying everything on the list, I realized, I should choose natural beauty for the family!

Green Beauty with a Tropical Twist

Green Beauty with a Tropical Twist
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When you apply your makeup are you transported to a land of rolling waves and sun-kissed beaches? Does a tropical island blend nourish your skin with every swipe or brush tap? If this sounds too good to be true, it’s not.  It’s all possible with the green beauty brand, Caley Cosmetics.

Meet Green Beauty Brand Caley Cosmetics

Launched in 2018 by mother-daughter team, Annie & Cindy Holland, Caley Cosmetics is a new player on the green beauty, indie scene. Their motto, to create a natural beauty brand that makes you feel like you’re on vacation every day, is unique and inspiring.

As a huge supporter of women owned, indie brands, I love everything about Caley Cosmetics. All of their products are:

  • Leaping Bunny Certified, cruelty-free
  • Made in a family-owned, green beauty facility in Texas
  • Score a 1 or 2 on the EWG toxicity scale (meaning they are safe & nontoxic)
  • Free of sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, artificial dyes or fragrances
  • Contain sustainably sourced ingredients manufactured with little to no carbon footprint

Additionally, every one of their products features their island blend of watermelon, pineapple, hibiscus, mango, jasmine, and papaya. This tropical essence is loaded with good for your skin antioxidants that both protect your skin and give it a natural, healthy glow.

Green Beauty _ Caley Cosmetics Look
Beach Babes Natural Eyes & Brows

The brand was kind enough to send me a selection of their products, including their Beach Babe Natural Eyes liner in Midnight. I also picked up the Beach Babe Natural Brows pencil in Dark.

Available in twelve shades (matte, shimmer & metallic), the Beach Babe Natural Eyes liner comes in a pencil form. Before you think, “ugh not another hard pencil liner,” let me tell you it’s anything but hard. Designed to apply like a gel liner, the Beach Babe Natural Eyes liner glides on very smoothly.

Green Beauty Beach Babe Natural Eyes and Brows

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like this liner. If there is one product I hardly use, it’s eye liner. I just find it so hard to apply on my small eyes and crepey lids. This was not the case with the Natural Eyes liner in Dark, a matte black.

The creamy, water-proof formulation is easy to work with yet has great lasting power and doesn’t budge or smudge. There is nothing worse than looking in the mirror to find your liner has travelled and you now look like a raccoon.

Most of all, I like how it made my blue eyes pop, which is exactly what the liner is designed to do. There must be some kind of magic in that ingredient list of fruit and botanical extracts and oils.

Green Beauty - Beach Babe Natural Eyes & Brows Swatches

Next up, is the Beach Babe Natural Brows, which is currently available in four shades. I did see the founder respond to a consumer review of the product stating that they are working on expanding the line. I couldn’t decide between Brunette and Dark but opted for Dark to match my cool undertones.

When I first tried out this brow pencil, I was not a fan. The formulation was so soft I struggled with the application. Although the pencil provided definition it also seemed to apply too much product. My brows were looking dark and chunky. With a little spoolie finessing and some clear brow gel I was able to tone it down.

But then something changed, the more I used the Beach Babe Natural Brows pencil, the better it performed. Now application is like a nice, warm tropical breeze on summer’s night. That might sound a little flowery, but it’s true. I find it very easy to create a brow look that is both natural and precise. I also appreciate how the formula dries down to a soft matte, almost powder-like finish.

Let’s just say when I pair my Beach Babes Natural Eyes and Natural Brows together, my eyes look incredible. They pop to perfection, without looking over done.

Beach Babe, Beach Kiss & Color Wave
Green Beauty Beach Babe and Color Wave lip products

In addition to the liner, Caley Cosmetics also sent me their Beachy Kiss Natural Lip Gloss and Color Wave Natural Lipstick. I also picked up their Beach Babe Natural Lips Liner to pair with the lipstick.

First, let’s talk about the packaging of the gloss and lipstick. They look and feel both modern and feminine. It makes me happy each time I see them sitting on my vanity.

The Color Wave Natural Lipstick, available in 14 colors, features a blend of watermelon, pineapple, hibiscus, jasmine and mango. This combination, along with other good for your lips ingredients, helps hydrate and protect the delicate skin on your lips.

Although I’ve only tried one color, Babydoll a peach nude, I’m very impressed with the pigmentation. The color is rich and very flattering to my skin tone. It’s also the perfect shade for spring and summer.

Green Beauty - Beach Babes Lips and Beachy Kiss Gloss

To complete my perfect pout, I picked up the Beach Babe Natural Lips liner in Coral. Like Baby Doll, it’s a pretty nude. It gives my lips definition, while also preventing from feathering, fading or bleeding.

I typically don’t wear lip liner as much as I did in my colleg days. Of course back in the 90s it was all about the liner, the darker the better. After using the Caley Cosmetics lip liner, I think it’s time I wear it more. The formula is longer wearing and hydrating. Not only does it look good on my lips, but it also feels amazing.

Green Beauty - Lip Swatches

Finally, we have the Beachy Kiss Natural Gloss in Sunshine Sparkle. I really hope the brand expands this  line because this gloss is very unique. It’s not sticky or greasy. Instead, it feels like you are wearing a nourishing oil on your lips.

You can wear the gloss alone, for a boost of hydration and sparkle, or over top your favorite lipstick. I like to pair it with BabyDoll and Coral. It gives my lips that perfect touch of shine I love. I also like to apply it to my lips on no makeup days. It nourishes my lips and gives my face a little boost of radiance.

After trying out all these goodies from Caley Cosmetics, I’m looking forward to seeing what they do in the future. I also hope to try out more of their liners, lipsticks, and the, soon to be released, Sunkissed Mineral Makeup.
