Neal's Yard Remedies organic makeup range review. Lip Gloss, Eyeshadow, Bronzer and blusher

I became a big fan of mineral and organic makeup lately, so I was really excited when  I was kindly sent some Neal's Yard Remedies  products to try out. I received a lovely Lip Gloss in shade Goji Berry, Mineral Pressed Eyeshadow in Silver Birch, Mineral bronzer in shade 51 golden bronze and Mineral Blusher in shade 54 peony.


I am very impressed with this eyeshadow. First of all it is a lovely colour. I like grey, silver and black shades for a smokey eye look. Most of the time I use this eyeshadow allover my lid and add a light shade in the inner corners of my eyes and on the top of the lid. I didn't use a primer and it stayed on all day without creasing. Depending on the brush I was using, there was a little bit or a lot of product fallout, so I used an ordinary eyeshadow applicator and there was no fallout at all. You can go for a more natural look if you apply it lightly or if you like a smokey eye look it can be done as well, as the colour goes to a dark grey if you apply more product or use it wet. It gives a nice shimmery finish and looks lovely.


 The formula of this lovely lipgloss contains antioxidant white tea, essential fatty acid-rich Organic Beauty Oil, organic sweet orange oil, conditioning organic castor seed oil and beeswax, to nourish, nurture and protect. The colour is a beautiful pink shade and looks very natural on my lips. If I apply it lightly it gives a nice wash of colour, but if you apply a generous amount, the colour becomes a more intense, almost berry shade. The formula is very smooth, not sticky at all and it smells lovely- very fruity/citrusy. It also tastes slightly citrusy :) Yummy! It is highly moisturising and leaves my lips very soft. It is packed with organic oils to protect and nourish.  No parabens. No silicones. No carmine


This bronzer is perfect for summer, it is very light and gives my skin a lovely sun kissed look. I use it allover my face with a powder brush or a kabuki brush, to get a bronzed look, or with a contour brush if I want to accentuate my cheekbones. Applied in the morning, it should last all day, unless you are exercising :)  I really like using mineral powders and bronzers, because they are full of goodness for my skin. The formula features antioxidant white tea, sweet almond, sunflower and avocado oils and organic shea butter, to soothe, moisturise and protect your skin.


Made with an organic corn starch base, enriched with antioxidant white tea and acai, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and shea butter this blush is a real treat for the skin and it looks lovely on the cheeks too! It is a very subtle shade of pink and looks very natural on my skin tone. It gives a nice matt finish, but adds a nice glow to my face, which is always a bonus with mineral makeup. 

Overall, I am really impressed with NYR's makeup offerings and my skin is loving them too!
