*Pink Blossom Cosmetics: Review and SWATCHES!*


Another week is almost over! Any big plans for the weekend?

I was thrilled to be asked to review a new indie company called Pink Blossom Cosmetics earlier in the month. I'd never heard of this company and was excited to try out their products.

Everything was packaged quite lovely. The clam shells and the jars were both shrink wrapped. There was a sticker with a tab over the holes in the jars and everything was labeled nicely. The ingredients in each eyeshadow were also printed on the full sized jars. You can also find a list of ingredients on their website. Also, nothing leaked during transit.

I didn't really know what to think just by looking at the colors. I did notice the product was finely milled and full of beautiful sparkle. Lilly the owner did confirm that each eyeshadow is hand blended and crafted. I really liked the textures just by looking at them. Once they were swatched, I was thrilled.

Each color was super pigmented with just one swipe. They were also so easy to blend with a rich, almost buttery texture. I especially love Tourmaline (it's my birthstone color) as it's got a lovely green shift in it's rose base. I also really like Pink Blossom (I love me a hot pink that doesn't try too hard to be anything else)! Topaz is a gorgeous shimmery yellow gold with intense color and Sultry Taupe is just as its name claims; a nice bold shimmery Taupe.I'm really impressed by each color as they are all gorgeous.

Pink Blossom Cosmetics also carried various NYX lipstick and gloss as well as false eyelashes and makeup brushes. It's kind of a one stop shop! :D Full sized jars are $5.00 and sample clam shells are $1.00, and I feel you get a good amount of product in the samples. I think both prices are appropriately priced for the indie world these days.

Would I purchase from Pink Blossom Cosmetics? Absolutely! I'd love to try some more of the Birthstone Collection. You can check out PBC on Facebook as well!
