When I first saw this beautiful brand Kjaer Weis, I was enamored with the gorgeous refillable compacts with Danish inspired design. This brand speaks deeply to my values. Beauty and sustainability are two things that breathe life into me. In the early 2000's natural beauty products spoke mostly to sustainability over visual beauty. Kjaer Weis delivers on both and not just that, the colors and efficacy match that of any Bobbi Brown, Chanel or Doir. The highlight of this brand each ingredient in a Kjaer Weis product has been carefully considered for its ability to work with the skin.
Kjaer Weis is produced in Italy. A place also dear to my heart for the incredible attention to beauty, detail and love of life. Almost all of their products have been Certified Natural or Certified Organic by the stringent standards of the country’s certification body, the Controllo e Certificazione Prodotti Biologici.
Kjaer Weis packaging revolves around the beauty of the product inside as well as the outside. Some cosmetics are not something you would want to carry with you. Every piece in this line is so beautiful, carrying it with you is like carrying a piece of art.
"At KW, the way we tell our story is through the objects that define us - from the red box to the sculptural compacts to the personalized essentials inside. On their own, each piece is a relic to treasure. Together, they tell a tale."
When you purchase a Kjaer Weis product it comes in it's signature silver compact, after the product inside is used up, instead of tossing this stunning piece, the founder Kristen Kjaer Weis designed the most incredible refillable in minimal recycled paper packaging so you can pop it back into the same compact. This is my favorite part of the brand.
The Color and Coverage
Before I go over each category in the brand, I want to share how delighted by the coverage and high impact color Kjaer Weis delivered. I have worked with makeup professionally for fifteen years. The colors are true on the skin, and wear all day long. If you are looking for a makeup that you can wear to the office and build up for evening dinner this is the brand you will want to wear.
Foundation - All Kjaer Weis foundations are a cream that has a matte finish. Instead of leaving a dewy glow the foundations give flawless coverage without it looking heavy. With the base of Shea Butter, Reship Oil, and Jojoba it nourishes your skin while you wear it. They don't have separate concealers because this foundation is so build able it can be used as concealer.
Blush - Cream Blush with high impact. The colors are rich and you need very little to achieve the color you desire. They are multi purpose and can be used on the eyes, and lips as well.
Eye Shadows - The densely pigmented pressed powder eye shadows are probably the most impressive shadows I have worked with. There is almost zero fall out when you apply them, and the color lasts. They are easily blended but stay put once they are on. The line also has two long lasting liners in brown and black, and the founder recommends using a wet angle brush to apply the other colors as a liner, to have long lasting wear.
Lip Color - Lip color is one item I see women fret over and can come in an impossible amount of shades, tints, textures etc. This lip line has been condensed into 8 beautiful shades that can match any outfit. This matte color stays for hours. Even after sipping on coffee or water it doesn't rub off on the lids. This performance for a natural lip stick is exciting. If you want to soften them adding a little of the lip tint will bring out some shine. Add one of their lip pencils for a more dynamic impact to your lips.
Lip Tints - The lip tint colors are bold, beautiful and perfect for those who love moisturized lips with just a touch of color. With Beeswax, Jojoba, and Rosehip Oils as the base your lips will feel nourished and lovely.
Bronzer/Highlighters - These are the perfect beautiful shimmery accent to your look. For the bronzers you have a choice of warmer or more golden. Soft, blendable texture is best applied with the warmth of your fingers or with the Kjaer Weis Blush Brush.
The Brushes - If you want a brush that is makeup artist quality and will be almost a life long lasting tool the Kjaer Weis brushes are the highest quality I have seen. They were designed perfectly and by founder makeup artist Kristen Kjaer Weis.
In general this line is one that you will fall in love with for life if you are looking for the highest quality and long-lasting makeup in natural beauty.
