I have been EXTREMELY pleased with Zuii Organic's blush and eye shadow products!! I wrote a separate review about their blush. This is one of the best brands if you are looking for a good natural eyeshadow with high pigmentation. I always like having pressed powders so they're fewer particles I'm breathing in with application.
My favorite colors are: Moss (deep green), Black Diamond (very black with subtle sparkles), Blackberry (deep purple), Blue Marine (beautiful medium royal blue), Brownie (dark gold), Mustard (medium tan with slight yellow and shine), and White Diamond (sparkly white). Make sure you apply with a good eyeshadow brush (I like MAC's brushes), and wash the brush weekly. If you use a cheap sponge applicator it will eventually cause the shadow to clump up in the container.
If your eyes aren't super oily, you probably won't need a primer underneath-- but I have ALWAYS needed to use a primer (even with more expensive/un-natural brands). For primer, I like Too Faced Shadow Insurance (not the most "natural" but it doesn't have the horribly bad ingredients like parabens, mineral oil, etc).
The shadows comes in small containers with screw lids (about 1.5 inches in diameter), so they are very portable! Very durable too, the eyeshadows have withstood my purse without the container breaking/eyeshadows cracking.
Real Purity also makes very nice eyeshadows (pressed non-nanosized), but its a hit or miss on the pigmentation.
Hope this review has helped! :)
I tried this eye shadow & find it okay for me. I generally have combination skin.
When I put the shadow on, the color does not last very long on my eye lids. The colors were okay but somewhat limiting in different selections for my skin color.
I found that I had to put not as much on as the color is highly concentrated in small amounts. I find the shadow wears off my skin easily.
I am in the process of finding more quality lasting organic based make up that works on me. So far I found the experience with this make up limiting but okay.
The packaging was nice though. continued >>
I really love these eye shadows. I have several shades: Fudge, which is a mid brown; Brownie, which is a tan; Blackberry, which is a gorgeous deep purple (I adore this one); Mustard, which is a cream colour with a hint of yellow and a very slight sheen; Black Diamond, which is a true black... great for eye liner, great for a deep black eye shadow.
These eye shadows blend easily, are not powdery, are not too shimmery, are made in Australia, and are not full of nasty chemicals. I really recommend them.
Totally agree with the reviewer below, these are AMAZING eyeshadows. Black Diamond is the blackest black I've ever used, I was very surprised because I wasn't expecting it from a natural brand. Highly recommended.
Love these eyeshadows! Everything in Zuii's range is 100% natural-containing flowers! But there is such a large colour range! And it's not lame and hippy free love looking like most natural makeups used to be. This stuff blends in immediately. I have White Diamond, Mustard and Fudge. The White Diamond I use as a base to brighten my eyes, Mustard can be used as one too, but is more of a champagne colour. The Fudge looks like natural contouring, but a little darker. Smokey and yummy:)
Addicted to this stuff.
Will give the mascara a go soon.... maybe a lipgloss. Not expecting miracles from a natural mascara though- I doubt it will compete with my current HG- Napoleon Perdis Madame Curl Curl:) We will see!
EDIT: Cannot rave more. Also have black diamond- using this as my eyeliner shadow. These shadows are pure pigment- they apply incredibly- smooth and deep colour and coverage. And it doesn't move! Any normal eyeshadows from normal glamour brand (Napoleon, L'oreal, J'adore, Estee Lauder, Revlon etc you get my drift) I would have to touch these up along my eyeline every couple hours. This stuff once is any! I cannot rave move! I am now using the fudge colour to contour cheeks also! Brillant natural colour.
