I’m kind of a mineral makeup snob. I love mineral makeup and I think it’s superior to any other kind of makeup! I love that it can be put on subtle, it isn’t cakey, and it only works to improve skin tone and accentuate natural beauty rather than… cover up in layers. Cakey makeup doesn’t look good, and it certainly isn’t good for your skin. Mineral makeup allows your skin to breathe.

It takes time and effort to find the brand that will work for you, but it’s worth it! I haven’t had much luck with most over-the-counter brands joining the mineral makeup craze, but every once in awhile I’ll find a brand I really love. Like Orglamix!


Orglamix makes 100% pure mineral makeup that contains no:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Petro-Chemicals
– Phthalates

At Orglamix, you can find mineral eyeliner/shadow, blush, foundation, and even fine makeup brush sets! Their eyeliner/shadow section is huge, containing over 70 different shades. There are also eye color kits, special tutorial kits, and even a Glampire collection – you can get any of these looks for under $20!

Their starter kits are $39.99 and contain all of the products (shadows, blush, foundation) you would need for your skin tone. This is a great deal! (Note that I have not tried their mineral foundation or blush.)

Thanks to Cheri of Orglamix, I was able to try out the Brown Eyes Intensify Eye Color Collection (brush not included), and boy have I had a lot of fun with these colors!

This collection includes the following shadows: Chamomile, Violette, Cardamom, Jasmine, Slate, and Bordeaux. I love them ALL! Slate is a gorgeous shadow that is at the same time subtle and sparkly, and looks good over the darker shades as well. I think that’s going to be my favorite out of the bunch. Cardamon (top right) is another beautiful color – kind of a purple with a bit of metallic blue. I like to add water to my mineral eye makeup and brush and smooth it on as eyeliner. All of these colors can be used together in different combinations and do, in fact, bring out the brown in my eyes.


(Bordeaux)

I’ve had a very positive experience with Orglamix eye shadows. I can’t even think of any cons except maybe that the Bordeaux didn’t go on quite as dark as I would have liked when used as an eyeliner. That’s a personal preference, though. If you like dark, dramatic liner, you might want to go for the very dark shades. Still, look at how the sparkles open my eyes up! I mixed Bordeaux, Slate, and Violette and found it made a very pretty combination when mixed with a little bit of water and used as eyeliner. I’m extremely happy with this makeup.

In conclusion, the price is perfect (eyeshadows are $3.99 each), the shades are gorgeous, and I will definitely go back for more. With over 70 eyeshadow colors, I have plenty to pick from! :-)
