Pressed eyeshadows: Lauren Brooke cosmetiques

Right now I’m testing (and always searching for new) some new pressed eyeshadows with natural ingredients. I will start my journey with Lauren Brooke cosmetiques, which was btw. one of my first natural brands from US that I’ve tested years ago. I’m really glad to see their brand growing and constantly improving. I have written in the past about them (and used their products) here and here.

New pressed eyeshadows

Lauren Brooke has already got a nice selection of powder eyeshadows and also some creamy ones. She has added now to the collection also 8 pressed eyeshadow duos, which are the same shades as powder eyeshadows. I find this a nice idea, very handy to use and for carrying around. The packaging is silver grey with a mirror and it contains 2grams of eyeshadow. I adore the texture of these eyeshadows because they are so pigmented and with a fantastic silky velvety texture that glides smoothly on the eyes. They are very easy to blend. The only thing that I personally dislike a little bit are big shimmery particles in a few shimmery shades, which can emphasize lines and wrinkles even more, especially on older skin. But this is just my personal opinion.

NOTE that you can easily use those eyeshadows even with a wet brush and apply them like an eyeliner.  Especially the dark matte browns look pretty for a day look when you wear a nice cat eye flick in chocolate brown! If you want a dramatic look, just set them with water (regularly applied as eyeshadow) they will look even more intense.

On the pictures I have put the eyeshadow along with the color swatch. I haven’t got anything on the skin and so the pigmentation is awesome. Just a small amount is needed for a good result. Because there was so much natural light from the window the pigmentation faded away and I can tell that in live is even more pigmented. Usually, I wear (my favorite are: Tanzi/moondust**, Capuccino and Toffee/Sandalwood) them alone or on top of a primer and they have a great stability. I don’t find them to crease, but I have dry skin on eyelids so this texture is perfect for this type of skin.

**note that on the picture the lighter part is quite “weird”. This is because accidentally – it rarely happens and it did with my fav one 😦 – the eyeshadow has fallen down and “fortunately” one part remained as untouched. So I managed to rescue it and put it together.

Here is the list with ingredients: 

(Vegan) Matte Ingredients: Sericite, Orange Peel Wax, Broccoli Seed Oil, Boron Nitride, Zinc Oxide, Vegetable derived Magnesium Stearate, Certified Organic Jojoba Oil, Silica, Certified Organic Lecithin (from soy), Capryllic/Capric Triglycerides (edible plant-based oil), Comfrey-derived Allantoin, Certified Organic Raspberry Extract, Natural Non-GMO Vitamin E (+/- iron oxides, mica)

    I love all Lauren Brooke’s makeup line, it works really well with my skin, especially the foundation, I have tried creamy, and pressed, I’m so glad I found it!

    I had been looking forever, for truly natural makeup, to go along with my choice to use natural products from head to toe, for my daily routine.

    Have you tried their lip colours? I have a few favorites, fleur and frappe, their lip glaze in guava,and lip gloss in berry blush,

    Loved the swatch slide show, it actually convinced me to buy a couple I guess it was the natural lighting, perfect, great review!
