anasi7 is a luxury, sustainable, organic makeup brand out of Sweden.   It’s brought to us by Susanne Manasi Persson, a makeup artist and product developer, and is about a year old.  I got my hands on six of their products, and with our plum Satin Lined Beanie on, I dug in!

Manasi7 Talk + DemoSo, Susanne Manasi Persson is of Indian heritage, and one of the catalysts for her starting her brand.  She couldn’t find the best foundation for Indian skin, so she created her own.  That is certainly relatable for women of color who love makeup.  Manasi7 Talk + DemoThe 7 in Manasi7 represents the principles the brand believes in, from producing organic products, to pigmented products.  The seven principles are beautifully carried through each of their products.  Using organic and harvested ingredients Susanne has curated really lovely makeup products that perform well, enhance natural beauty and are kind to the earth, something I completely support.  They are also perfect for women with mature skin, of all skin tones.  Visit their official site, to read the most thorough descriptions of each product, and what the brand stands for.

  1. Manasi7 Talk + DemoAll Over Glow Cristallo—this is the brand’s newest product. It’s an all over balm.  It can be used on the face, lips and eyes.   This clear balm gives the skin a beautiful glow, sans glitter.  It’s purely glow that is not sticky, is easy to blend, and sits beautifully on the face underneath the Skin Enhancers, or on its own for those no makeup days.

Hero Ingredients:  Certified Organic Shea Butter, Beeswax, Beeswax and Castor Seed Oil

  1. Skin Enhancer Beechwood—the Skin Enhancers come in four colors. Two are more medium shades (Beechwood and Sarcoline), one very dark brown shade (Jamocha) and one white shade (Eburnean).  The idea for these enhancers is to give each woman, no matter her shade, a chance to customize her foundation and concealer.  Manasi7 Talk + DemoSo, to darken your foundation, you can add a drop of the dark brown color to a medium shade, and to lighten it, just add a drop of white to one of the medium shades.  The idea is brilliant, especially for women of color who can’t always find the right foundation color match.  I find the foundation has a light to medium build on me, which I love, because it looks natural.  However, it can be built up to a full coverage foundation.  A little goes a very long way, so you should have your Skin Enhancer for some time.

Manasi7 Talk + DemoSo, Beechwood happens to be my perfect shade.   You are advised to use Skin Enhancers with a balm.  So, I use Beechwood after applying Cristallo to my face.  This medium shade, with golden undertones, has a gorgeous, natural finish.  Applying with my fingers gives me the most natural looking, second skin finish.  I find the Skin Enhancers to be a bit dry, so the balm really allows it to blend easily, while giving your face the nicest glow.  If you’re specifically looking for a good foundation for dark skin, or any shade of brown, Manasi7 has got you covered!

  1. Skin Enhancer Eburnean—this white enhancer allows you to lighten up your foundation and concealer and still maintain the same undertone. This is such a brilliant product.  Manasi7 Talk + DemoI’ve used it to create custom concealer.  I mix this with Beechwood, and Cristallo, to make a color light enough to apply as an under eye concealer.  As I’ve said, I find the enhancers a little dry, so Cristallo allows for a smoother application, and takes the dryness away.

  1. Manasi7 Talk + DemoBronzelighter Roseate—this beautiful product is a standout for me. It can be used as a bronzer, on lighter skin tones, and as a highlighter on deeper skin tones.  I use this gorgeous golden rose color as a highlighter, as it suits my brown skin perfectly.  As a highlighter, what it does is give my skin a beautiful, healthy, glow.  I cannot say enough about this product.  It also works beautifully as a cream eyeshadow.  I’m pretty sure there will be more Bronzelighters in the future, and I can’t wait.

Hero Ingredients:  Natural/Wild Harvested Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Apricot Kernel Oil, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters and Coconut oil

  1. Strobelighter Sunrise—the soft peach color, gives a subtle wash of color to the places you wanted highlighted. It comes in another hue, Celestial, but I grabbed Sunrise.  It is said to enhance the skin’s natural glow, and it does just that.Manasi7 Talk + Demo  Again, there is no glitter, or sparkle in this illuminator makeup, so if that is your thing, this is no that.  For those women who just want their glow to look as natural as possible, with a little color, this highlighter will absolutely get the job done, and do it beautifully.  I love cream highlighters, in general, because they look seamless on the face, and are easy to apply.  They never highlight texture the way powders can do, and as a woman in her 40s, I’d prefer to not highlight things I don’t love.

  1. All Over Colour Sanguinello—boy does this color pack the most beautiful punch.

Manasi7 Talk + Demo  It is a bright coral hue that can appear more pink or orange, depending on your skin tone.  In the pot, the color can appear intimidating, but once it is on your cheeks, eyes, or lips, it blends out easily for a nice subtle burst of color.  Now, of course, you can build it up as much as you want.  Another reason I love cream blush, and cream products in general, is you can layer, and build without the cakey look powders have.  I’ve used it on my cheeks, eyes and lips and I adore this both as a blush color and eyeshadow.Manasi7 Talk + Demo  While the color payoff is beautiful on my lips, I find it sinks into my lines too much.  Another pair of lips may yield different results.  I will say, it’s incredibly lightweight and soft on the lips.  The texture, for a lip stain, is perfect!  The All Over Colours come in 10 hues, so there is something for all tastes.

Hero Ingredients:  Certified Organic Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Beeswax, Carnauba Was and Castor Seed Oil

Manasi7 Talk + Demo**Each product comes in a small pot, and the pots come in a box.  The box is lovely and earth friendly, but there is a label that attaches to the top of the box, to the bottom.  You are unable to open the box without breaking the seal.   The problem is, that can be a deal breaker, if you want to return something, just because you’ve changed your mind.  I learned the hard way, and it was a little disheartening.  When dealing with makeup on the internet, sometimes we change our minds when we see the product in person, and we should be able to return in.  The label on the box does not allow for that with these Manasi7 products, from the place I ordered from.

My advice would be to check the policies of the place you’re going to order from, so should you want to return, or exchange, you know before going ahead with the purchase.  That was the only glitch I had.

The products are beautiful, they layer well together, and you can use them in different ways.  That is one of the things I love most. There are no rules.  Play around and put things where you want them.  Manasi7 Talk + DemoThe color payoff is so good, when you’re considering these are organic products.  They are also earth friendly, and that is a huge reason I love this brand.  Sustainable beauty products are not that common, so I applaud the brand for considering their responsibility to the earth.  If you’re looking for a luxury brand, that is organic, that will enhance your natural beauty, check out Manasi7.

  1. Would you use the skin enhancer daily? Also, how did it last all day? Would you say it is a good foundation for everyday use? Thanks for the video and the blog post, you're one of the only black woman that I have found a review on!
    • Hi!! Yes, it could certainly be used daily. I have other foundations I love, so I never wear just one. It lasted four hours. The staying power wasn't a problem. Thank you for visiting!
