If I had to choose one brand that I recommend the most it would be Beautycounter. They truly have something for everyone- male or female, whatever your age- and now that they've added color cosmetics to the lineup, they've become a total game changer for green beauty newbies and veterans.
Beautycounter was the company that inspired me to get beauty clean. They just make it so easy. I've tried their cleanser, body cream, their lip sheers, the anti-aging line and now their color cosmetics...I'd say that I've become quite the Beautycounter expert.
I'm really liking their pressed eye shadows and blush duos (FYI-made in Italy). The bright pink tone of Flamingo drew me in as well as the chic combo of Shell and Malt. Together they help to create a very classic look...not too much drama, simple and clean.
The Flamingo side pops for sure and the Apricot is luminizing- which gives a nice contrast to the bright pink and softens it up a bit. I also really love Shell- the light pink shows up surprisingly well on my medium skin tone.
If you've been aching for a clean pressed powder blush (vs so many of the cream options out there) then you should try it. It's a nice break from using your fingers.
