A brand that I have never heard of called UNE caught my eye. I love their packaging. They come in sleek rectangular cases that slide open and shut magnetically. They even have a handy mirror built on the outside of the case so it doesn't get all greasy or powdery from the cosmetics on the inside.
After doing a little research, I found out that this is a sister line to Bourjois that is organic and eco-friendly. According to their website, UNE uses :
- formulas 98-100% natural in origin
- no oils derived from petrochemistry
- no parabens or silicones
- no artificial colorants or synthetic fragrances
- eco-friendly packaging to minimise the impact on the environment
- no ingredients of animal origin
I'm loving their products. I should have taken advantage of the sale at Superdrugs and picked up more blushes and some of their foundation products. ARGH. I was being cheap because of the exchange rate and now I am regretting it.
Anyhow on to the swatches :
They Glimmer Eyeshadow is just gorgeous. It shows up a little gold in the swatch, but in person it is more cool toned. The staying powder is up to 6 hours without primer and it doesn't crease on my lids (but keep in mind my skintype is normal to dry).
The blush in S02 is just the perfect rosy pink. I should have picked up all the other blushes they had in stock that day. It's a cream to powder finish that just looks so natural on the cheeks.
