Review: Mineral/Organic Eye Makeup

>I recently started working at an organic beauty store as one of their makeup artists. I LOVE working there 😀 One of the requirements to working at this store is that I have to only use their makeup when I’m working…perfect excuse to buy new makeup, yay!! I have a small collection..which is building up quite quickly he he. So today I’m going to show you all my new makeup.

What is it:
Elusyion Mineral Makeup – Grace and Smokin (Eyeshadows)

They describe it as:
Elusyion pure minerals has a wonderful array of pure organic yet wild and dramatic eye products to choose from. Sheer vibrant pure crushed mineral powders which are long lasting and with the other products in our range are perfect for people with allergies or sensitive skin as they do not contain any fillers, talc, dyes fragrances or perfumes. Some of our micas are shimmery, others matte and all are simply gorgeous! As with all Earthy Essences Products, A LITTLE GOES A VERY LONG WAY!!!

Rating:

  • Product: 4/5
  • Would I buy again? Yes!
  • Price: Grace – $23.25 AUD and Smokin $23.00 AUD

Where to buy:
 Elusyion Makeup by Earthy Essence
They do International Shipping 🙂
B Kind Organic Beauty Bar – you can visit their store online or in Subiaco.

Overall opinion:
Both these colors are quite shimmery in the container but on your eyes they don’t look so shimmery which is good, woman of all ages can wear these colors. They are a cool combo if you want to do a soft smokey eye. Smokin is great in the crease or all over the lid and smudged into a smokey eye. I also use it as an eyeliner. With Smokin you only need a little product on the brush…it’s very pigmented! I have found that I need to pack more on my brush for Grace but it’s a nice color and works well as a base or highlight.

What is it:
Inika Mineral Makeup – Turquoise Kingfisher Velvet (Eye shadows)

They describe it as:
INIKA eye shadows (1.2g) are rich in pigment providing vibrant and opulent colours that last all day.
The purity of ingredients means that they are perfect for even the most sensitive eyes. INIKA eye shadows are multi-purpose and can be used wet or dry as a shadow or eyeliner

Turquoise – This breathtaking colour replicates the finest turquoise gemstone.  A vibrant shade that makes you instantly think of summer days spent by a tropical oasis.

Kingfisher – No need to fish for compliments when wearing this bold and bright shimmering green.  A fabulous mood lifting colour for your eyes.

Velvet – A hot and bright purple that is guaranteed to draw attention.

Where to buy:

B Kind Organic Beauty Bar – you can visit their store online or in Subiaco.

Overall opinion:
I LOVE Inika shadows. They are so bright!! I got very excited when I saw these brights. I hadn’t seen bright mineral eye shadows before. The color pay off on these are amazing! Especially with the Turquoise. I love how you don’t need much product to get a good color…these will last a long time!

What is it:
Nvey Eco Organic Makeup – No. 151 Deep Rose (Eyeshadow)
Zuii Organic Flora Makeup – Sunflower (Eyeshadow)

They describe it as:
 Nvey Eco Eye Shadow is talc-free and formulated using soothing organic elements, including chamomile and jojoba, with added antioxidants to create a smooth, soft formula, excellent for dry and sensitive skin
.
Zuii‘s unique Talc Free Certified Organic Floral Blend of rose, chamomile and jasmine powders enriched with natural vitamins and minerals delivers both a subtle and sophisticated color palette to soothe and nourish your eyelids.

B Kind Organic Beauty Baryou can visit their store online or in Subiaco.

Overall opinion:
I like these two eye shadows…but the color pay off isn’t that great. I have done a look with the Sunflower and it came out really nice. Basically these are nice soft colors that you can build up if you want to go a bit darker but they won’t go really dark. The Nvey Deep Rose is a pretty pink, it makes a lovely day eyeshadow.

What is it:
 Inika – Organic Eyeliner Pencil in Black Caviar.

They describe it as:
 A divine, creamy, true black.
INIKA Certified Organic eyeliners have a rich and creamy consistency unparalleled in the world of natural liners. Formulated to glide on easily, they deliver even depth of colour and real stay-ability. The colour pigments work in harmony with INIKA eye shadows to create dramatic and iridescent effects. This organic formula is perfect for the most sensitive eyes.

B Kind Organic Beauty Bar – you can visit their store online or in Subiaco.

Overall opinion:
 A beautiful creamy black liner. This is great for smudging under the lash line..it’s so smooth. I love it. I also use it on my waterline but it isn’t waterproof so I have to keep reapplying throughout the day. If you love smudgy pencils then this is the one for you!

What is it:
Morgan Annie Gel Liner in Black.

Rating:

  • Product: 3.5/5
  • Would I buy again? For sure! I love gel liner.
  • Price: $39.95 AUD

Again this product is not shipped internationally. It’s a pretty new brand so I don’t think it is available world wide as of yet.
B Kind Organic Beauty Bar – you can visit their store online or in Subiaco.

Overall opinion:
Yay for an organic gel liner! Gel liner is the best, it is so much easier to use than a liquid. I like this product. However I find that I have to go over the line a couple times because it doesn’t come off really black. I set it sometimes with a black eyeshadow. It isn’t waterproof either. But hey, it’s organic and it’s not going to poison me so I’ll stick to using it. It works well 🙂

Gosh this post is getting big!…and I’m only half way through my products! ha ha. I have decided that I’ll show the rest of the products to you guys in the next post. So next time I’ll review mascara, blush, concealer, primer, lip liner and a yummy lip scrub.

Until next time.
Love Chloe xx
