Orglamix ~ Review & Giveaway

I am a self-confessed makeup addict. I love it all: blush, lipglosses, mascara, but my favourite of all is eyeshadow. I love how easily you can change your look with just a bit of colour, so I was thrilled when Cheri of Orglamix agreed to send me some of her fabulous 100% pure mineral eye shadows to try.

I received the Ginger Snap collection of eyeshadows and was immediately impressed with the packaging. Since this is mineral makeup, they come in small pots with shaker lids, so you can easily choose how much pigment to pick up. Something that Orglamix makeup is missing is all the bad stuff that hides in most traditional makeup. There are no synthetic dyes, parabens, or synthetic fragrances found in any of Cheri’s products, which makes it a great choice for people with sensitive skin as well as those of us trying to use products that are good for us.

The Ginger Snap collection consists of three colours: Cafe Au Lait is a pretty, subtle gold; Sandalwood is a lovely, neutral brown, and then there’s Cardamom. I wasn’t sure what to make of Cardamom at first – it looks sort of like a rust colour but with flecks of electric blue in it. I was sure it would be too out there for me, but I could not have been more wrong. The beauty of mineral makeup is how easy it is to layer. If you just put on a light coat, it’s a pretty deep pinkish colour. I love it as an eyeliner because depending on how the light hits it, it either appears as the deep pink or as a shimmery blue.

The Cafe Au Lait shadow has become my go-to shade for every day, and when I’m tired looking – which, as a mom of an infant, is most days – I use it as an eyeliner to help perk up my eyes. Orglamix has a ton of other products, ranging from blush (I have my eye on Anise, a peachy-pink that looks so fresh for spring) to a 7 piece natural wood brush set that would fit perfectly in your purse for any touch ups you need during the day.

There are lots of ways to find Orglamix online. Aside from her Etsy shop, there’s a Facebook Fan Page that has all kinds of perks (like discounts, giveaways and exclusive products) and Twitter. I bet you’re dying to try some for yourself now, aren’t you?

One lucky winner will win three shades (or one collection) of eyeshadow of their choice!

Visit Orglamix and tell me which three shades you’d pick (required).
