I like to be spontaneous when it comes to my makeup choices. I tend to always play it safe and stick to neutral colors such as brown and gold eyeshadows and a neutral lip tint. A girl needs to change it up a bit sometimes and add a pop of dramatic color to feel sexy. This is exactly what I do whether it’s my eyeshadow, lipstick, or both.
I recently entered a blogger contest and being the lucky girl I am, I won! the prize won was Beeseline, an all natural alternative to Petroleum Jelly, which I will be reviewing soon. Included in my prize package was a surprise – a full sized lipstick and eyeshadow from a Canadian beauty brand called Delizioso Skincare. Founded by two very eco sisters, Ariel and Leeona Emerald, “Delizioso Skincare follows the pure and ancient botanical aspects of skincare with the perfection that embodies natural herbs and wild ingredients. Delizioso Skincare, created by a team of knowledgeable individuals in the cosmetic field, launched the year of 2008.” Delizioso not only offers skincare, but also a wide variety of bath & body products, haircare, aromatherapy, cosmetics, and much more.
A little about Delizioso from the website: “So many natural skin care products are diluted with water and contain very low amounts of actives. Delizioso Skincare prides in never having to dilute our natural skincare. We carry a line of skincare like no other; containing active and biodynamic molecules in every ounce of product. From shower gels to facial creams, your skin will receive extreme nourishment and the highest quality delivery system of antioxidants. Delizioso Skincare is the only company in the world that incorporates our potent anti-oxidant complex in every single formulation. The complex formulated from raw botanicals and fruit oils derivates works to preserve our formulations and increase skin smoothing effects. Asides from that, many of our scents are specially formulated to provide you with a line of natural bath & body care with delicious and natural aromas like passion fruit and pomegranate. Completely original and unique, Delizioso Skincare provides luxurious spa quality natural skincare with outstanding effects on skin.” I was thrilled when I found a full size eyeshadow in the color Huckleberry and a beautiful lipstick in Raspberry Kisses.
Huckleberry description from http://www.deliziososkincare.com: “Delizioso Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow is great for even the most sensitive eyes. The super smooth formula glides on easily, giving you a crease-proof, soft-textured look that lasts all day. Created with the purest ingredients the all natural eye shadow helps create hundreds of beautiful looks. Infused with mineral mica, the mineral eye shadow imparts a youthful finish that women of all ages will love. The amazing pressed Eye Shadow is very long lasting and bursting with pigment.”
My thoughts: A mysterious shade, Huckleberry is a stunning combination of deep navy and dark gray, making it the perfect choice for a smokey eye with a subtle pop of colour. It has a slight shimmer when applied directly to the eye, but becomes matte when blended out. I did apply eye primer for lasting effects and it held up most of the day but started creasing at the end of the night. I believe that’s pretty good for nine hours on. I also used an eyeliner brush with a bit of water to line the bottom of my lash line and the result was beautiful. Dry or wet, this eyeshadow is the perfect color for either a day or a night look.
Ingredients: (*Certified Organic): Mica, Zinc Stearate, Boron Nitride, Hydrated Silica, CaprylicCapric Triglycerides, Allantoin. May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide.
Raspberry Kisses description from www.deliziososkincare.com: “Warm pink with red and coral undertones. A slightly shady yet saturated shimmery color. Delizioso Skincare brings you an all natural lipstick that is long lasting and leaves behind addictive creamy color. By using ingredients on lips like pomegranates we don’t give up on the high impact synthetic ingredients provide. Instead we’ve found a way to stay natural and sexy at the same time. Delizioso Skincare uses a technology of naturally intensifying pigments to provide splashes of color. Highly pigmented color. Bold and Brilliant. Formulated with antioxidant fruit oils and extracts. Top quality. Delizioso Skincare’s luxury lipstick is the satin and most creamy stick that nourishes and pigments. This lipstick offers intense non sticky hydration and a dramatic splash of gorgeous color.”
My thoughts: Let me reiterate, I keep it safe with lip colors and stick to neutral peach pigments. When I first applied this lipstick I thought it was very bright, it may be the red and coral undertones, but I guess that’s what they mean by bold and brilliant. It took some getting used to, but the color grew on me and it’s the perfect shade for spring and summer. The lipstick lasts for almost four hours and leaves the perfect coral lip stain after eating and drinking. This lipstick is very creamy and I did not have to add lip gloss to it, but I’m sure lip gloss would be stunning over this as well, proving that it is very versatile as well as beautiful.
