If you’ve not heard of the brand before, Ragged Blossom Beauty is an all natural, handmade Australian cosmetics company. I was sent 3 of their mineral eye shadows to try out and review, and this is the first of three reviews that I will post on the blog. The company owner Lindy was kind enough to send me three of the more neutral shades from her range, and my favourite of the three is definitely “Siren”. The packaging is similar to a lot of loose dust/pigment eyeshadows I’ve used in the past, as you can see in the pictures below.
As you can see from the pictures, the shadow contains some tiny glitter particles. These look absolutely beautiful in real life, and aren’t completely captured in the still shot. The shadow has a similar consistency to a MAC Pigment, or one of the Napoleon Perdis Loose Eyeshadow Dusts (both of which I have personally used in the past). The shade “Siren” is quite sheer and doesn’t have a lot of colour payoff, so I find that it works best when layered over a neutral shaded eyeshadow. (note: the swatch above has 3 layers of the shadow built up to give that sort of colour.) The Ragged Blossom Beauty mineral eyeshadows are handmade, and free from parabens, talc, oil, fragrance, bismuth oxycholoride, boron nitride, synthetic dyes & animal products (and are vegan friendly). The single eyeshadow pot retails for $9 AUD and can be purchased online from Ragged Blossom Beauty. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review.)
