Kjaer Weis Review 2023 (My Honest Thoughts)
If you’re looking for one of the highest quality organic makeup brands that has prioritized sustainability since its inception, Kjaer Weis is simply the best.
Kjaer Weis is a luxury, organic makeup brand known for their commitment to sustainability and quality. Founded by Danish-born, New York-based make-up artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis, the brand is renowned for its intersection of luxury and organic formulations that rival the likes of Dior. The brand’s cosmetics are all Certified Organic or Certified Natural, which means they are free from parabens, silicones, petrochemical emulsifiers and synthetic fragrances.
Kjaer Weis makeup is a celebration of bold, beautiful color and texture, and is designed to enhance natural beauty without compromising on efficacy or safety. The standout of Kjaer Weis makeup is perhaps its signature packaging. Each product comes in a sleek, refillable metal compact that is as elegant as it is eco-friendly. The packaging is designed to be refilled with the brand’s product refills, reducing waste and promoting a more sustainable approach to beauty.
The range of Kjaer Weis makeup is extensive and includes everything from foundation and blush to eye shadow and lipstick. Each product is formulated with high-quality, natural ingredients that are kind to the skin and deliver impressive, long-lasting results. The brand’s Cream Blush, for instance, is a best-seller and has been praised for its blendable, buildable formula that imparts a natural-looking flush to the cheeks.
This certified organic lipstick is impossibly chic and luxuriously creamy. Kjaer Weis offers one of the best wearable shade ranges I’ve seen in clean and organic lipsticks. They give a satin finish and contain certified organic ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, Root of Light and sustainably-sourced Shea Butter and Beeswax. Some of the shades do contain artificial colorants.
The lip gloss is also refillable, but is the heaviest lip gloss I’ve ever used. The certified organic formula itself is creamy and moisturizing with ingredients like Sunflower Seed, Vanilla Planifolia, shea butter and Rosehip Seed Oil. It gives lips a sheer wash of color.
