Let's Play With Makeup--'The Eyes Have It' Creme Eye Shadows! (Review)
I received 2 of these 'The Eyes Have It' Cream Eye Shadows from The Organic Skin Co. in the colors Greenstone & Silhouette. The packaging was way beyond my own expectations. Sleek and professional with that earthy touch--caps made from a wooden material.
As someone who really appreciates the planet, I love everything this company stands for. The product itself amazed me. They are MUCH bigger than expected, which was so very reasonable for the price point.
An 0.08 Oz Refill Pod is around $18 dollars. Not too bad and certainly well worth the price point, considering that 'each sale plants a tree.' But enough about the packaging, allow me to get into each shade.
💚GREENSTONE--This cream shadow is a beautiful dark emerald (Forest Green!!) based glimmer cream. Buildable to an extent that at it's full pigmentation--it shines like a jewel all its own.I used to own a similar shade I would wear all the time on my lower bottom lid. My old eye shadow came from the "Arabian Nights" Disney Elf Palette named "Jafar" and it is almost a complete and total dupe of the same shade. (Just in cream form!) I was so happy to find this out because I've been searching FOREVER for this shade, so I am quite thrilled to add this one to my collection!
♥SILHOUETTE--A smokey stone grey based cream shadow with a slight cool light blue undertone. Reminds me of a cream eye shadow from Urban Decay called 'Bulletproof.'
This one isn't as glittery as Greenstone but the shimmer is still there. I definitely will be using this shade a lot to achieve that "smokey eye" look I love so much! This one needed a few coats to achieve that rich grey tone, I will admit. But just like Greenstone, this one can and definitely will be buildable.
🌿Some More Info & Swatches--
⚫Since both are very buildable, you can make some amazing eye looks using these shades. I even took the liberty to combine them both. The colors blend beautifully together and can even be added on top of each other as an accent shade to one another.
⚫What I really love about these cream shadows is that they are made from ingredients that aren't harmful to put in or around your eye. Organic castor seed oil, calendula, rosemary and pomegranate highlight what these cream shadows are made from. All individually good in their own way for your skin's overall health.
⚫Since we are on the topic of healthy--I love how Organic Skin Co. didn't compromise beauty over health but rather, blended both of those essential things together to create highly pigmented and beautiful products we can choose without having to feel guilty about anything. Something the eco-friendly beauty community lacks so much of. We need more products like these on the market to pick and chose from.
⚫With 10 shades to chose from, you definitely have something for everyone.
⚫Not only do these shadows work well as what they were intended for--being eye shadows but they can double as beautiful eyeliners.
⚫The color lasted well into my whole day, without fading. In fact, when I tried to wipe them off using my washcloth and Micellar Water--They slightly stained my skin. lol
⚫As for texture and feel--they were superb. Not sticky, like most cream shadows. Much more like satin than glue. lol I applied mine on top of primer, just to make sure the colors stood out in their full pigmentation. I highly advise on using a priming element when wearing these shadows. You can use them alone but they seemed to have lasted longer with the light coat of primer.
🌿Some Negatives About These Cream Shadows--
⚫Now, I did find a few negatives about these cream shadows. Nothing too ground-breaking but enough to talk about. Despite the colors being pigmented and lasting all day without fading, even using primer...I did happen to notice some extreme creasing and migrating in the shadows. I have hooded eyes, so that probably contributed to most of the creasing but something to note. (I have photos for reference!) It doesn't shock me though, considering they are cream based shadows. Creams usually do this sort of thing, which is why I don't normally reach for too many of them but I am pleasantly surprised by these. Primarily for the pigmentation. I definitely plan to use mine a lot, despite the minor con.
⚫The only other negative I have to address is minor irritation. My eyes are extremely sensitive to most products, and these shades definitely reddened them up a bit. No stinging or anything of the sort, just slight redness with some watering of my eyes. It only lasted for a few seconds, I guess to get my eyes used to the product a bit, but after a few minutes of wear, they took to the creams nicely and reduced in redness.
🌿MY ENDING NOTE--
All in all, I am quite pleased with these shadows. I will be digging into my pots for a long time, using them in all ways possible to my makeup wear. Especially that Greenstone shade.
