*Beauty from the Earth Review* and SWATCHES!


Happy Hump Day Zombies!

I was recently given the opportunity to review some eyeshadow from Beauty from the Earth. I've heard and seen lots from this company, but like a few companies I've WANTED to try, I never got around to it. After swatching the colors, I see that I waited far too long!

I was sent a tin of 16 sample jars, plus a full size eyeshadow to review. The tin is SUCH an awesome idea, and now I have storage for my BftE eyeshadow!






































Ok..Now, do you see what I mean by waiting too long to order? Just LOOK at these colors! OMFG. I do know, because it's on the website, that a few of the colors are basically straight pigment (mainly the primary colors) but shit who cares?! At least you KNOW that before purchasing.  Ingredients are also listed next to each eyeshadow description.

A full size eyeshadow is $6.50 and a sample jar (like the one's shown) are $2.00.

I do not own a color like Shopaholic or Super Heat. And I can't freaking WAIT to try out Blue Bird and Sunning together. Illusion and Sugar Plum are also very stunning!  The colors were so easy to apply (swatched of Pixie Epoxy) and even with their stupendous pigmentation, washed right off. When I say pigmented people, I mean pigmented and packed full of awesome and win! Oh..and lots and lots of glitter!

Each week, BftE offers a Color of the Week (COTW), which is a full size color at the sample jar price of $2.00. What a great way to try out the product.  Also, check out their Facebook Fanpage.

I am absolutely stoked to have been given the opportunity to try BftE.  And I will absolutely purchase a shit ton of pigments from them! Run people, RUN to the website and grab some of these colors!

  5. Such pretty colors! I haven't tried BFTE yet. Guess I just never got around to checking out their shop.

  6. I can't wait to finally be able to order from BFTE. Hopefully some time soon. I don't mine companies selling unblended pigments, because the colors are often awesome, as long as they clearly state it. It's nice that she does.

  17. BFtE is one of those companies that I see swatches for, put on my mental "to DEFINITELY buy from" list, and then forget - until I see more awesome swatches like these. Thanks, lady, for swatching these, and reminding me to get my butt in gear. They are gorgeous! I think Jaded, Guipure, and Emerald City are my absolute faves of these.

  20. My BFTE Wishlist goes on and on and on... I just keep adding stuff and promising myself I'll order only the stuff I really need. And since that is every single shade on my list, I started to put some $ aside cause, boy, the total sum is well, hefty. And I was trying to be modest so I chose the Sample size jars for about 80% of the stuff.
    I live in Europe so I have to take the Intl Shipping/Taxes expense into consideration. Otherwise, I'd be ordering a few eye shadows every week. Full jars, of course :D You girls in the States have no idea how lucky you are with all those great companies you have over there!
