Dunkle Authentic

Today I'd like to talk about a local brand run by an amazing woman, Dunkle Authentic. Molly Dunkle runs Dunkle Authentic and not only is she a very talented make-up artist, but she also hand crafts all of the products. What started with a lip balm at age 12 has grown to include a range of lipsticks and lip glosses and there are SO many more exciting things to come.

I met Molly purely by chance when she was looking for foundation matching models for her new range. She very kindly gifted me with a foundation from her new range (launching soon!) and two beautiful lipsticks too and I've had nothing but compliments about all of them. So many people have asked me about the products that I thought it was only right to do a post on them.

Dunkle Authentic Foundation in No.3* (Launching soon!)

These foundations remind me of the Nude by Nature or bareMinerals loose powder foundations. The foundation works best if you tip a little into the cap and blend it into your brush before buffing into the skin. What I love most is that you don't need to use a concealer or anything because this foundation will pull double duty. It also gives a really flawless finish requiring very minimal touch ups. When I wear this, I find I only have to blot or add a little extra powder maybe once through the day and it still looks flawless. If you don't believe me, take a look at this photo of me at the blogger event (Obsession 2015) that I hosted with Kate from The Minted Beauty. I didn't touch up my foundation once (and it was a crazy busy day), I think that pretty much speaks for itself!

I'm also super excited that I got to be a model for this new range so keep your eyes peeled for me when the foundations launch (VERY SOON!)
Dunkle Authentic Lipsticks in BrisVegas and 970 FoCo* ($45.00 each)

If I had a dollar for every time someone had asked me what lipstick I was wearing whenever I have BrisVegas on, then I'd never have to worry about how to support my makeup addiction again! It is the most beautiful matte berry purple shade and it is perfection in a tube. 970 FoCo is more of a nude shade with a slight orange/coral undertone and again, it's absolutely beautiful. The packaging is also gorgeous, it feels really fancy and it almost a collectors item. The lipstick formula is infused with mango butter and rose so despite being matte and having some crazy staying power, it doesn't feel drying on the lips at all. My next purchase from the range will definitely be Gaga's Island but they're all gorgeous!

I think that this post needs a serious "watch this space" sticker because you should expect big things from Dunkle Authentic. If you're in doubt, just ask any of the bloggers who attended Obsession 2015 because Molly and her lipsticks were a huge hit!

I am actually obsessed with Dunkle Authentic and I can't wait to get my hands on the foundation! As soon as I saw it on you, I was like wow, flawless! Molly colour-matched me and I am shade 3 as well :) Those two lipstick shades are just gorgeous so I may need to do a sneaky order with Molly very soon! Her packaging and products are so on point!!! xxx

Seriously BrisVegas is the most stunning shade. I'm loving the lipgloss we were given from Obsession! I definitely want to pick up more of her due time hehe :)

BrisVegas is just beautiful! And I love the Bora Bora lipgloss too, the rose scent is so yummy, I'm considering getting the full size version even though I usually HATE lipglosses
