ABOUT THIS BRANDAs a celebrity makeup artist, it wasn’t JoAnn Fowler’s intention to create a makeup line. After L-Word actress Mia Kirshner requested paraben-free makeup, Fowler searched for natural options to no avail. Upon researching the negative effects of toxins in makeup, Fowler struggled to find the performance she craved in clean formulas. With a few nudges of support from Kirshner, JoAnn followed the calling to formulate a green makeup line suitable for being on-set and Sappho was born. As head of the makeup department for The L-Word, she had the perfect canvas to test her formulas, and in the end named each of the twelve Sappho foundation shades after the female cast members of the show. Every detail of each Sappho product has been mindfully crafted, from the eco-friendly, biosphere-treated compostable tubes and glass foundation bottles, to the details of the mascara brush and melt-into-your skin formulas. JoAnn quickly proved that performance and luxury doesn’t have to suffer with safe products.
I tried this though the Sappho box and although I'm usually a medium color wise anywhere, this was way too dark for me. After reading really good reviews I decided to try Light and it was a perfect match. Purchased a full size product and It's just perfect for my sensitive skin. The right amount of coverage (light to medium I think?) and It just makes me look good, which is all we need, right? I used it over oil, no moisturiser, but truth be told I am travelling so my routine might change back home in LA.
I picked up the BH Sappho box since it's such a good deal and BH does a great job curating make-up. The CC cream is the first item I tried and I was stunned. First, I am fair with a neutral to pink undertone, so I ordered the Fair box. The CC cream texture surprised me. It feels like a mousse. It goes on easily with fingers and surprised me because I thought it looked ashy before I finished applying. With very little work, it amazingly seemed to adjust to my exact skin tone and left a medium coverage. With my dry skin, it looked somewhat matte and really looked just like my skin. I think this will be a regular sub for foundation each weekend when I feel like a quick face so I can go out and have fun.
