Eye Shadow - Mineral Fusion - Eye Shadow Trios

Nov/27/2015

I was looking for subtle but shimmery lid colors and darker colors other than black to use as eyeliner. I had previously used Mac Intoxicate as liner, and I wanted to find a natural brand mineral replacement. I bought the Mineral Fusion Trio palette in 3 combinations:

Density: The darkest shade is a lovely eggplant, and while it seems a touch less brown than Mac Intoxicate, it's …

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Honeybee Gardens Powdercolors Stackable Mineral Color

I've sampled these in Satin Sheets and Chai. I'm very impressed with the pigmentation and the texture - Satin Sheets is so so pretty - like pale, spilled gold on my skin, it does kind of have that satin sheet look - much more finely sparkly than it looks in the bag. Chai looks like a dusty chai color, very matte on my skin. It's kind of cool when names are actually accurate! …Read more

I have tried these in Zen, Perfection, Charisma, and Island Spice. To me it seems that Zen is a bit paler than shown in the "swatch" picture on the website, but the description (warm pink) is accurate. Same for Island Spice - it is more cinnamon than in the "swatch" picture as it shows up on my screen. A swatch I saw online of Fantasy looked a teeny bit more purple than the …Read more

Candles - Pacifica - Sandalwood

I'm reviewing the 5.5 oz candle. This is a lovely sandalwood blend, true to the spray fragrance. It gives off a gentle but steady scent, if you burn it long enough, it will fill a small room - I have not found it potent enough to spread any farther than that, though. I love that it's soy and made with a lead-free wick, and it has a simple elegance in its appearance - just the subtle yet …Read more

I liked that I could buy this conveniently at the drugstore. I found the darkest color available there, "natural beige", thinking it might blend into my skin, but it was too light and pinkish. The main problem that kept me from trying to find a darker shade like "sand" was that the product itself didn't apply nicely for me. First, it flew everywhere, into my hair, on my …Read more

Blush - Unlisted Brand - Honeybee Gardens Healthy Glow Mineral Blush (ALL)

Nov/20/2015

I have tried two of these blushes - Cherub, a very youthful, shimmery, fairy-dust pink, and Ginger, which has just a teeny hint of shimmer, and is the most natural color for my skin. They are highly pigmented, but as loose as they are, they are not easy to control - I need to learn how to put the right tiny amount on my brush and spread it where it needs to be (and not where it shouldn't …Read more

Nov/20/2015

Normally I don't wear lipstick - I just haven't liked the colors I tried, and I just wasn't that into it. Now I am getting into lipsticks, and I wanted a natural brand - well, these come in shades to please anyone! And they sell samples, so I managed to find my perfect set of lipstick shades, they are truly so lovely and beautiful that I can't wait to start wearing them. …Read more

Nov/20/2015

Finally, a major win as far as color match! I have been looking for a natural ingredient, mineral powder that matches my skin (Indian, medium brown, golden undertone), with no luck. I tried Pacifica, Physician's Formula, and Mineral Fusion - I had various issues with all of them, and none matched my color - often they also didn't have enough yellow for my golden undertone. This powder …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Indigo Wild Soy Candle in Frankincense & Myrrh

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2015

Strongly scented, gorgeous fragrance, soy candle with lead-free wick. The tin itself isn't very attractive, unfortunately - it would be nice if it looked more elegant, but it's in keeping with the company's overall style, and if you buy the kind in glass, it looks nicer. What was lovely was the crushed rose petals on the surface of the candle - they looked really nice in the wax …Read more

Nov/18/2015

A natural deodorant that works wonderfully well! No white residue, works well, smells fine! I got Herbal Detox as it doesn't have baking soda. I don't know if I have an issue with baking soda, but I have read that it can become irritating for some. Some of their other scents looked better to me (the ones with baking soda), but this one is okay - it prevents bad odors, and it is mild …Read more
