Origins Brighter by Nature Skin Correcting Makeup & Skincare

Will Origins give you brighter skin courtesy of nature? I sure hope so! Their new Skin Correcting Makeup promises to brighten skin while correcting dark spots plus they have an entire Brighter By Nature Skin Collection that will correct skin tone over time.

I want to try it!

Origins Brighter By Nature SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Makeup $27.50

This is a formula that not only contains a high SPF but gives a long lasting flawless finish while concealing dark spots, mattifying skin, and brightening your complexion. With an oil and talc free formula even sensitive skin can take advantage.

It sounds interesting enough however I beg to remind myself how many pressed powders I have handy already but….but…it promises to brighten. Can I resist for long?

If you’re wanting to embrace the entire regime check out the new Origins Brighter By Nature Skincare Collection which includes a peel, serum, and moisturizer that’s clinically proven to restore clarity to skin and brighten up uneven skin tone! A mix of Japanese Basil Leaft, Cucumber, Peony, and Vitamin C contribute to giving you a brighter more youthful appearance.

Origins Brighter by Nature High-Potency Brightening Peel with Fruit Acids $37.50

Origins Brighter by Nature SPF 35 Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer $42.50

Origins Brighter by Nature Skin Tone Correcting Serum $39.50

The collection is fairly affordable so I just might go ahead and indulge. What do you think? By chance, do you believe the Origins has the power to brighten your skin?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    i thought about buying the serum today! i do not now if it really does what it promises, but i think i`ll give it a try. To me as a student it is actually quite expensive though.

  • Girl Hearts Makeup

    I’m interested in the SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Makeup! Wonder if it really corrects skin tone! 🙂 Please review it!!

    • the Muse

      hi girl hearts makeup ;-D considering a purchase now and def will review if I indulge! 🙂

      • Girl Hearts Makeup

        Awesome! 😉

        By the way, I was thinking of getting this and I wonder if I can use it alone, without any concealer & foundation because I’m still in school and I don’t want too much makeup.

        Do you think it can work alone? I have some redness I need to conceal.

        • the Muse

          not sure Girl hearts Makeup….I can’t speak for the pigmentation dear as I haven’t tried it. Could be merely transparent and mattifying…it does say it evens out skin tone so perhaps it will work on its own ;-D if I try it will give the word!

          Could I suggest something? I have a lot of redness and I had it all through high school but had no one around me who knew about makeup to give any suggestions. It’s good you are reading beauty blogs and taking care of your skin. I found that a good skin routine helps, try calming gentle cleansers and moisturizer. Lush, Clinique and Origins are all good for that. If you’re still red/blotchy light makeup can help- try patting and blending a little concealer over the redness and then dust some mineral foundation over your whole face to even everything out and make your skin look bright and still very natural. All you need for that is a fluffy brush. You can apply concealer with your fingers and if you do decide to use mineral foundation there are inexpensive places online that are much better than bare Escentuals, such as Meow, Dream World, Silk Naturals, etc. If the redness gets worse maybe you should see a dermatologist. Good luck!

    I’ve used the Brighter by Nature serum for a while now, and I have noticed a subtle brightening of the skin with it. To be fair, however, I use quite a number of Origins products for my skin (they work the absolute best for my very sensitive skin and saved me from a nightmarish acne breakout) so there’s a chance that it’s the combination of products that leads to the brightening look, not just the serum.

    • the Muse

      aenaria I’ve never really dabbled with origins that much but even a little brightening would be awesome ;D!

    Unfortunately, I didn’t have a good experience with this line. The pads were all right (didn’t really see any results), but left me dry; I prefer Modern Friction over it. The serum broke me out. The texture was thin enough but sticky, and I felt like there’s a layer of thin glue on my face. I haven’t tried the moisturizer or powder yet. But I think this line and I just weren’t meant to be. 🙁

    • the Muse

      aw man maggie those were one I had in my cart and had plans of ordering darn 😀

      • June

        I tried the pads – not bad, but not a big difference in my skintone – they feel nice and smell great though! lol. as for the moisturizer – it worked on my bf (hehe) who has drier skin. But on my combi skin it was really greasy and never got fully absorbed. I’d have to use a reaaallly tiny amount – which, to me, kinda defeats the SPF purpose!

        Just my 2 cents – hope they work out for you! Would love to see your foundation review! THAT does interest me..hehe

        • the Muse

          june I wonder if the moisturizer will do me good as I’m dry so the extra thickness might do the trick ;-D

          def want to try the makeup out!

  • Alli

    I’ve thought about trying the serum, but haven’t as of yet. I am really happy with my Philosophy Miracle Worker pads and serum, so I may skip these. I do LOVE Origins Vitazing though. Have you tried that, Muse? It is fab! and I love that I can actually skip foundation if I want to bc of the little colr beads that are in Vitazing actually work as a tint and some days it is all the coverage I need…and it feels dreamy on!

  • Nunuiviet

    I’d like to try the cream SPF 35, I’m currently using their night A vitamins and mineral creams, I find origins skincare ok and affordable.
