Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation

Recently I’ve been going through an obsession with being healthy. This is not just in my home with the food I eat, but also with the products that I use. I don’t know how long this will last 😉 But while it does, I’m enjoying discovering more natural products that I didn’t know about before.

The Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation is one such product. Their whole range looks truly delightful but the baked foundation stood out the most to me. I knew I had to get my hands on it…

What is a Baked Foundation?

You may not be familiar with baked makeup products, so let me explain what they are. They are exactly like they sound – baked. They are usually creams that have been baked for a period of time transforming them into a solid powder.

The solid powder is often marbleised in appearance making them really pretty! These products have a beautiful creamy texture to them.

The advantage of baked products is that they often have fewer ingredients. This makes them healthier for our skin. You can apply baked products either wet or dry due to their origin of being a cream.

They are also known for their ultra-smooth application. It’s definitely worth giving these baked products a try! I am already a fan:)

I’ll start with the packaging because I am oh so obsessed with it. I have a thing for cute packaging and this one scores high. It comes in a lovely wooden box that screams organic and natural.

I love how appropriate and fitting the packaging is for an organic product. Not only that, it’s incredibly pretty too:)

So what is this foundation all about? Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation is a luxurious baked powder foundation. It provides uniformity to the skin and brightens the complexion. No jokes here, it really does all that.

The foundation offers light-refracting properties to cover up any imperfections. It covers imperfections remarkably well, and at the same time, it looks really natural. Go figure!

It blends beautifully and gives the skin a flawless finish. I love the texture, it feels so luxurious and lovely. It has a beautiful matte finish, that stays matte even in hot climates which is quite an achievement.

Are the ingredients really all natural?

I have seen people complain that this foundation is called organic but in reality, it is not 100% organic. Yes, it’s true, the foundation is not 100% organic, but no product with minerals is 100% organic.

The baked foundation is certified organic by an organisation called Ecocert (a very stringent European certification body that makes sure all ingredients are safe). 

This means that the foundation has gone through an extensive and expensive process to become certified. The results are that it ticks all the boxes to be organic. So yes, it is organic.

The foundation is suitable for all skin types since it’s made from natural ingredients.  

The Shades

Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation comes in 5 shades.

  • Light – Ideal for fair to light skin tones.
  • Medium Beige – Great for light to medium skin tones.
  • Medium Dark – Great for medium to tanned skin.
  • Nude – Perfect for tanned, golden skin.
  • Dark – Perfect for deeper skin tones.

Usually, when there are only 5 shades I complain that it is nowhere near enough to suit everyone’s skin shades. But, with this foundation it’s different.

You see, the shades are made to adapt to the skin and they do exactly that. They add natural colour to your face, giving you a look as if you’ve just been to the beach. This baked foundation is the perfect product for the summer months.

How to Apply a Baked Foundation

There are 2 ways to apply the Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation. You can either use it as a setting powder on top of your foundation, or you can use it as a foundation. If you are using it as a foundation the best way to apply it is with a kabuki brush.

Make sure you are rubbing the foundation into your skin with the brush. This will help the foundation last longer. Another way to keep your foundation intact all day is to dampen your face before you apply your foundation.

This creates a base for the foundation to stick to. If you are using it as a setting powder on top of your foundation, apply it lightly with a powder brush.

The foundation has a lovely light and silky feel on the skin. It’s very build-able so if you apply a lot of layers it can be full-coverage too. You can expect some amazing staying powers from this foundation!

My Thoughts

This is a must-have foundation for those who love a natural look to their makeup! It does everything a foundation should do, with the added bonus that it’s good for your skin.

This foundation is quite similar to the Laura Geller Balance n Brighton but without unnatural ingredients and chemicals. If you like that, you’ll love this! 

The one downside to the foundation that I can think of, is that the packaging is a bit bulky. However, if you have space, then it shouldn’t be an issue. If you don’t have space…make space! It’s THAT worth it!

I love how the Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation gives the skin the ultimate flawless finish without it being at the expense of the health of your skin. Check out more powder foundations reviews here.

This was the philosophy that inspired the brand Antonym and a philosophy I would love to see more of in the beauty world:)

  1. Great article! Organic is definitely the way to go and it’s good to know about any available organic makeup for us girls that want to stay dolled up without having to worry about our decisions being detrimental to our planet. Very informative and I like how you included photos of the product and how to apply the powder.

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment:)

    Well I was looking for a new foundation and now I have learnt something too. I never really understood what they meant by baked.
    This sounds like a brilliant foundation and I really like the idea of layering to increase coverage. I don’t want the same amount of make up on in the day as I would want in the evening.
    I hadn’t heard of this make before but you have convinced me to give it a go. Thank you for sharing

    1. It’s a great foundation and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed:)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wow you have provided lots of great information on this Antonym certified organic baked foundation. I’m also fond of using all natural ingredients in not just food, but all my shampoo, soaps, and even cleaning products around the house. Am so glad to have stumbled on your website. Now even my foundation will be natural and organic as well. 

    Thanks for the great article!

    1. Good for you that you’re on the road to using more natural products! That’s great:)

  4. I must admit that this is the first time that I have read about Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation, although I have tried other brands of baked foundations.

    Most of my experiences with baked foundations have been great, but about one or two that I tried didn’t work well and looked too powdery on my skin. This recommendation looks great as you say it is also great for your skin. It is not too often that you get natural products such as this one, so will make a point of buying this brand the next time around.

    1. Antonym cosmetics isn’t as well known as it should be. It’s a shame because they have awesome products!

    I’ve never heard of baked foundation until today. I was all ready to read about cupcakes or cookies or something! lol The Antonym Certified Organic Baked foundation actually looks very beautiful. I love the case that it comes in. It only comes in five colors, but you said that it’s OK because the colors blend in well with different skin tones? 

    That actually makes me like it even more because you know how hard it can be to match foundation to your skin. It’s nice when you can have a product that blends in so you don don’t need to have a perfect match. 

    Do you know if this is available in the US?

    1. Yes, buy the closest colour to your skin and it will blend beautifully. 

      Sure, you can buy it directly from their website.

    What a great article! I never paid attention to the foundation and makeup, even, didn’t know that Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation exists!

    I like the fact that this kind of foundation is perfect for humid and hot places, like Florida, Georgia State, South Carolina State, etc. Also, the foundation is suitable for all skin types, and it is organic. 

    Great post. Useful recommendations on how to apply on the skin.

    Question: do I need to put some cream or lotion before applying the foundation?

    1. It’s a really lovely foundation! Before applying any foundation I always recommend moisturising and priming.  They help your makeup stay on longer and better. You can use the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré, it works as a moisturiser and a primer together.

      Thanks for stopping by:)
