Green Makeup: Emani Hybrid Cream Colour in Sex Kitten

This little bad boy has crept into my make-up bag. It’s a little different to the usual eyeshadows so I thought I’d give you a little look at this little guy…

This is an Emani Hybrid Cream Colour in Sex Kitten. According to Emani’s website  these are hand made, talc and paraben free (although I can’t testify that the rest of the ingredients are not bad for us as I’m not a chemist, although I sometimes wish I were!). They are a blend of shimmers and mineral pigments for eyes, cheeks, and lips. Although I would definitely  only use this one on my eyes…

PIC_1156Yes, glitter a go go under flash photography! The weird thing about these is that they are made with natural waxes and oils. This means the texture is not powdery, which is what I was expecting when I dipped my brush in for the first time.

PIC_1168The shadow has fantastic colour pay-off and has a multidimensional finish on the skin. I did find myself dodging the glitter but the good news is that I have no fall-out thanks to the waxy consistency.When I first swatched it it reminded me of MAC tempting. So of course I had to compare…

Turns out it’s it’s much darker.

PIC_1165Unusual isn’t it! Definitely one for night time though. I have quite oily eye lids and found that I definitely need an eye primer for lasting power.

I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Emani when they launched their range in Ireland. I was given a little sample bag of goodies to try out. I like their green approach to cosmetics and I’ve been trying everything out for a month so I’ll keep the blog reviews coming for those of you interested in natural make-up.

If anyone is interested in Emani products in Ireland you can find them in The Nail and Beauty Bar or contact 01 8409 124 for stocklists arounf the country. Those in the US can order from www.emani.com.

What’s your thoughts on mineral make-up?

    Can I simply say what a aid to search out someone who truly knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how you can bring a problem to mild and make it important. Extra people have to learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more in style since you undoubtedly have the gift.

      @Holly There’s loads of them, usually in shoppinc centres; donaghmede, pavillions swords, clarehall – they’re the ones I know of but they have a website if you google the nail and beauty bar. :) x
