Neal's Yard & Remedies Organic Make up
Soft Smokey Spring Look
I'm so excited to share this look and review. NYR recently expanded their organic make up range, and I was so excited. You might know that I am very aware of the ingredients I use, but with make up I haven't care more than to not use mineral oil. All of the products from eyeshadows til lip glosses have an amazing ingredient list! Before I got the chance to buy any I was actually kindly sent these by NYR about a month ago.
However, I will definitely buy more! I'm looking to buy the bronzer & more eyeshadows.
Also, I have done a collage of their make up before here, where I shared more info about it.
I am so happy with the stuff and I created this soft smokey eye look using the eyeshadow "Hibiscus" and the silver eyeliner "Slate".
So first off is the eyeshadow. It's a golden/bronze shimmery colour. Although it might look like it in the pic, you actually dont get any fall out when using it which is a massive plus. Also, to my surprise, the formula is quite creamy. You can also use it as a highlighter (if your my skin tone or darker) or as a bronzer if your a bit lighter.
Part of the ingredients from here: Mica, zea mays (corn) starch*, Zinc stearate, Ethylhexyl stearate, Squalane, tapioca starch*, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil*, Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil*
The lip gloss is in the shade "Damask Rose" and it sort of a neutral shade with a lot of shimmer to it! Hopefully you can see that in the picture down below. The ingredients are great, so it's sort of like a lip balm and lip gloss at the same time.
Part of the ingredients from here: Ricinus communis (Castor) seed oil*, Hydrogenated castor oil, Cera alba (Beeswax)*, Copernicia cerifera (Carnauba) wax*, Mica, Citrus sinensis (Orange) peel oil expressed*, Linum usitatissimum (Linseed) seed oil*, Cannabis sativa (Hemp) Seed oil*
The consistency is surprisingly good considering the great ingredients, but it's still a tiny bit more runny than a normal lip gloss. It's still got that "lip glossy" consistency though. The staying power is kind of normal, nothing special.
This eyeliner is dark/grey silverish and it's slightly creamy and very blendable. It's not super pigmented but the more you work it in, the more colour you'll get. I'd say it's best for a soft smokey look rather than for making sharp lines.
Part of the ingredients from here: Ricinus communis (Castor) seed oil*, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed cera\wax, Oleyl alcohol, Mica, Cera alba (Beeswax)*, Copernicia cerifera (Carnauba) cera\wax*, Glyceryl ricinoleate, Rhus verniciflua (Sumac berry) peel cera\wax,
For this look I linder my upper lash line, half of the lower and made a eyeliner flick that I smudged a little. After that I applied my eyeshadow.
Here is the finished look! Other products I'm using are: MUA Eyeshadow primer, Isadora Bronzer for contouring, Rimmel eyebrow Pencil and Clarin's Mascara (review here). I didn't use any foundation on my face.
Have you tried NYR make up or any other organic make up?
