NVEY ECO Organic Makeup Review

organic mineral eyeshadow paletteNVEY ECO is the leader in luxury organic makeup. They are the first organic artistry brand - high performance, intense pigments, no compromises! NOT mineral - Certified Organic!

NVEY ECO's luxurious collection of cosmetics include ingredients such as natural beeswax, rose absolute, jojoba oil, chamomile and vitamins such as A, E and C . Unlike many chemical based cosmetics, NVEY ECO does not test on animals. They offer such a infinite color selection to accommodate women of all ages and skin types.

NVEY ECO graciously sent me several cosmetic samples to try. In the past I have used mineral makeup, but this is the first time I have used organic makeup. NVEY ECO carries everything from concealer, eyeshadow, lipstick, foundation, blush and so much more!

First up was the NVEY ECO Organic Lip Lustre in the shade Flirt. All of their lip lustre's come in a long "tube" similar to many lip glosses. The handle is long and rectangular, making it easy to grasp and apply. Flirt Lip Lustre is a beautiful rich burgundy shade. This lustre was ultra moisturizing and very smooth. Although this shade is darker than I would typically wear, I like the fact that these lusters are non-sticky and lightweight. Only one application was needed because this product lasted for hours!

organic blushThe Organic Creme Deluxe Foundation is available in 10 shades. I was sent the darkest shade- Deep Medium to Dark -878. Even as a self admitted tan-o-holic, my skin would never be dark enough to wear this shade. This foundation was smooth and creamy with a light, almost unnoticeable fragrance. I like that NVEY ECO's foundation felt as if it was melting into my skin rather than caking up and highlighting my flaws.

I was also sent Organic Powder Blush-950, or Deep Terra Cotta. This shade is a dark, deep reddish brown. I have dark hair and dark eyes and normally choose a color to help brighten my face. Although this was too dark for me, it would be great for anyone who likes browns and reds. This also pairs great with the Flirt Lip Lustre. This blush is highly pigmented therefore only a tiny amount of product is necessary. If you prefer lighter shades, NVEY ECO has a beautiful warm pink shade!

The NVEY ECO Organic Eyeshadow-167 is a beautiful Bronzed Marigold Shimmer. This shade can be worn alone or as a highlighter. I wore this shade while on an adventurous all day shopping event under the hot Texas sun. I found that throughout the day, my eyeshadow stayed fresh and looked as if I had just applied it. It took 15 hours before it began to crease. I imagine it would last even longer if a primer was applied prior to applying the eyeshadow.

The Organic Eyeshadow- 161 is a very versatile Pale Silver White Shimmer. This shadow can be worn alone, to compliment other shades, as a brow bone highlighter, as a liner or used in the corner of your eyes to help brighten your eyes and make all natural, organic foundationthem stand out. I didn't think I would like this shade. From looking at it in the package, it looks like a solid white. But once applied, this shadow completely transformed my eyes. I used this shade in the corners of my eyes and as a base. My eyes definitely stood out. This shade blended easily with my other shades and lasted all day.

I have saved the best for last! NVEY ECO also sent me Organic Eyeshadow- 159. They describe this color as Pink Carnation Shimmer. I would call it "Every woman's Must Have"! I'm so excited that I had the opportunity to try this shade. For months, I have been looking for a pink eyeshadow. Everything I came across screamed 13 year old glitter pre-teen princess. The shades I have found either look too light, too pink or too glittery. NVEY ECO's Pink Carnation is the perfect shade of pink. You can apply it once for a subtle shade of pink or re-apply for a brighter pink color. I swept it across my eyelid then used it to contour my crease. It actually looked like I was wearing two shades of eyeshadow. This has just enough shimmer to draw attention to your eyes. Like the other eyeshadows from NVEY ECO, Pink Carnation Shimmer is lightweight, easy to apply, smooth and best of all it lasts all day without creasing or fading. If you are looking for a pink eyeshadow- look no further! This shade is absolutely gorgeous!
