Hi Guys and Dolls! I was recently sent a few Heavenly Natural items from the Shimmer Network to review. So Bam: Here you go.
These items were sent to me free of charge for reviewing purposes by the Shimmer Network, however this company sells their products for a very nice price point. Their eyeshadows sell for around 4.99 & the lipgloss sells for 6.99. More information of pricing can be found at http://www.heavenlynaturalbeauty.com/
I was sent 3 of the Neon Pigments, A Mineral Lipgloss and 2 samples of their eyeshadow. Now, the neon pigments are listed under the eyeshadow category, but in the listing, it stated that the neon pigments are not FDA approved for use on the eyes. I tried using these on my lips, and the pink turned out GREAT, but the purple and yellow turned out weird. SO I’m really at a loss for how to review these. I did go ahead and try them as eyeshadows, and they worked great, but since that’s not technically safe….Well, I’m going to leave that open ended. These did arrive with a plastic seal, and I really felt that that was a nice touch, it was a bit beyond what most internet-based mineral companies do.
The two eyeshadow samples I received are great! Hush a Bye is a shimmery mid-tone blue with golden shimmer and Beauty Marked is a nice medium to light purple. Both have a smooth application and a nice “cling” -Not all mineral companies have that. Overall I was impressed with these two, and when I get a chance, I’ll try this company’s eyeshadows again.
The Lipgloss is interesting. It has a very pleasant candy-cane type scent that I really like. Lately I’ve really liked minty gloss as I feel it gives me fresher breath. This one didn’t sting like some of the other minty glosses I have been using. I liked that this was a sheer wash of color. This lipgloss is also very shiny. On the website, they claim that this lipgloss is rich and thick without being sticky. I found it to be incredibly watery. It actually felt runny. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was getting in my mouth, since my mouth started tasting minty (and I’d just eaten). If you like minty lipgloss, and don’t mind if it’s very very thin, then this is for you. I did notice that my lips felt very soft and moisturized after I used this.
I know this review seems a bit jumbled. That’s sort of how I feel. I really don’t care much for the gloss, but I know some people like that sort of gloss, so I figured I’d share the specs. I really liked the eyeshadows, but I don’t really have enough of them to try for a tutorial. I like the neon pigments, but those aren’t eye safe. I will say this: If you wanted the MACPro Neon Pigments, but just can’t commit to a whole $19 jar (who is going to use that whole thing?), get these, since they are only $5!
Another thing that’s really cool about this company is that they list the ingredients on the products!
