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 from Lauren Brooke cosmétiques
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.
Green makeup tip 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.
