Product Review: Ragged Blossom Beauty E/S in French Gem

You may or may not remember my rather eventful first review of the Ragged Blossom Beauty mineral eyeshadows, and I do hope that this one runs a little bit smoother than the first. I was sent three of the Ragged Blossom Beauty eyeshadows for trial and review, and French Gem is my current favourite of the three. It is a super sparky, pinkish gold shade that I have been wearing a lot on nights out on the town. A friend of mine also borrowed and wore the shadow, and it looks particularly gorgeous on blue eyes.

The pigmentation of this shadow seems to pack a lot more punch than the first that I reviewed, and it applies very smoothly. The only down side is that there is quite a bit of fallout due to the large amounts of shimmer in the shadow, but this can be managed with a dusting of loose powder under the eyes as prep before applying. 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.)

Product Review: Ragged Blossom Beauty Eyeshadow in Siren

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.)
