Eye Shadow Heaven with BFTE
Have you ever stood in the beauty aisle and just stared at the endless choices of make-up for what seems like hours? Then you start to feel awkward because of how long you have been there so you just pick something …or worse, leave with nothing? Well I have. I guess you can say I’m sort of make-up challenged. I don’t wear it often so when I try buying some, I am at a loss for what brand, what color, etc.
Well a few months ago I came across this page on Facebook for a make-up company called Beauty from the Earth Cosmetics. They really caught my eye because of their extensive line of eye shadows and uniqueness of colors. As I started browsing their selection, I began to get that overwhelmed feeling again.
Then I discovered… sample sizes. For only $2, you can choose a color in a sample size jar. This was perfect for me! I suddenly found it easier to pick out colors. I figured if I didn’t like it, I’m sure I could find someone who did. You cannot go wrong for $2. There is nothing worse than buying eye shadow and then realizing you don’t like the color. Granted, there are stores who will allow you to return make-up, but who feels like making trip after trip to the store until you get the right color. Or what about when you buy an eye shadow set and there are one or two colors in the set you don’t like. It seems like such a waste.
I made the bold move and for $18, purchased 7 sample size eye shadows: Lollipop Kid, Black, Mania, Olive You, Bewitched, Bermuda, and Livid. Did I mention they have really fun names for their shades? Let me just say, I was so impressed with the company and their products. First off, the shipping was reasonably quick and the customer service is right on top of things. Although the sample size jar seems small, it actually goes a long way. You can get at least 10 uses out of it before running out. Also, if you are like me and skeptical about ordering online in fear that the color won’t look like the picture from the website, never fear. Their colors are dead on and for an extra bonus, they are incredibly sparkly. After trying out their shades, if you really like them you can purchase a full size jar for only $6.50.
The eye shadows do come as a loose powder. However, you can buy Mix & Fix to turn them from a powder to a smooth wet eye shadow. They also carry other make-ups, sets, collections, accessories… too much to mention in one review. You need to browse the site and see (and buy) for yourself.
