Let me introduce you to my new favorite makeup company: Orglamix. They have the most amazing, beautiful colors! Cheri will even do custom colors. Although, I don't think you would need a custom color. She has so many various shades that I had a hard time picking which colors I wanted. After about an hour or so I finally decided! Orglamix makes natural, beautiful makeup. They are a member of PETA and they don't use any Parabens or Synthetic Dyes. So, you know this makeup is safe for your skin. I have always been obsessed with eye shadow! If I don't have time for makeup, I toss on eye shadow and fore-go the rest. Needless to say, I was really thrilled about trying Orglamix eye shadow.
The first color I tried was Twilight (pictured above). This is my absolute favorite! My husband even commented on how pretty my eyes were (which is rare). Twilight is a very shimmery purple and appropriately named. I know I will be ordering this one in the future.
The second shade I tried out is Lagoon (pictured above). Lagoon is a gorgeous "Sea Foam Green" color. I have been told that green goes well with brown eyes. My eyes are a hazel that often look brown. I have had a hard time finding a pretty green that I would want to wear..not anymore! I love Lagoon! It is the perfect frame for my hazel eyes.
Last but not least, I tried Sesame! I have always been in love with silver eye shadow. It gives you the deep and dark and mysterious look without making you look goth. This color did not disappoint! The soft, shimmery silver worked great for me.
All of Orglamix eye shadows come as loose powder in jars with sifters. On the etsy site for Orglamix, Cheri compares her products to Bare Minerals to demonstrate how much of a bargain they are. I don't think the two even come close to comparing....Orglamix is better! This eye shadow is completely affordable, it's long lasting and it is easy to put on. What more could you ask for? Not much, but just in case Orglamix offers a 100% Guarantee. I am not alone in my praise, they have 100% positive feedback on their etsy account and I have several friends raving about Orglamix!
Orglamix also has blush, face powder and even eco friendly brushes for sale. You can also purchase a package of 15 eye shadows at a time, or a preset eye collection. Ladies...these are must have! I plan on asking for some for Valentine's day!
Here are a few more of my favorites:
