If you've been coming by my blog or just looking at me, you can probably tell that I love makeup. I love colors, and I love pushing the envelope. Experimenting with makeup is one way that I can express myself while enhancing my natural beauty.
I was recently given the opportunity to try Orglamix Mineral Makeup. Orglamix is an Etsy shop that creates 100% mineral makeup. Their collections are gorgeous!
What I find extremely amazing about Orglamix is that they just started selling their line in July of this year and have already surpassed 800 sales! Most of these sales are from Word of Mouth! (Which just goes to show you how powerful Word of Mouth really is!)
We were asked to choose an eye collection from the Ministry of Magique, which work great for Halloween, and with that Holiday coming up, I was excited to find colors that I could use for Halloween as well as daily use.
I chose the Horcrux Collection, which is a beautiful collection of Black, purple, and almost gold/kinda-white VERY Glittery colors! Gorgeous!
About the Horcrux Collection:
What it is:
A collection of Orglamix eye shadows.
What it does:
"MAKE LOVE NOT HORCRUXES"
A three-piece eye defining and lining collection takes the guesswork out of getting started with pure mineral eye colors so you can achieve effortless eye looks in seconds.
Orglamix Horcrux collection of eye colors contain rich colors in silky, truffle-like textures. The sheer, translucent, 100% pure minerals glide on softly and give your lids a luminous glow. Smoldering in their sleek pots, these pigment-rich shades are so stunning you almost feel bad swiping them with a brush.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
Here I am with just the eyeshadow on my eyes:
I did the purple on my lid, the black in the crease, and the lightest color up to my brow.
Here I am with my eyes closed:
And here I am all finished up:
I love these colors and the makeup feels incredible! I'm a sucker for glittery makeup and I can't wait to play with these more! The colors stayed on so long that by the end of the night (and I tend to have late nights!) I had to remove it with a makeup removing cloth, and usually by then, regular makeup has worn off!
Halloween is going to be sooo fun with these colors! I have a football game that night so I can't dress up and go trick-or-treating, but best be assured that I will be putting the black on my eyelid, then the purple in the crease, and the gold up to my browbone.
THREE lucky winners will win the same collection I'm wearing in the photos above.
