NVEY ECO : A review of pure organic, environment-friendly makeup





Hi there, my darlings! I've had one heck of a day and all I want to do is go to bed. You know, one of those days when everyone has seemed to sprout horns? Yeah...could it be because tomorrow is Halloween? Anyways, before I chalk this day up to a complete loss, let me show you a brand that I've been pretty excited to showcase on the blog--NVEY ECO, a brand that takes pride in creating organic, environment-friendly makeup.

When I enthusiastically agreed to review the brand, I was asked to choose my foundation shade based on a rather detailed "Foundation Selector". Color me already, immediately impressed! After answering a couple of questions to the best of my abilities (hey, I have NEVER figured out what my true "undertone" is), 2 shades were selected for me : Cool Honey and Medium Beige. When my review package arrived, both these shades as well as a very attractive Lip Lustre was tucked into the folds.




Now, as most women of color will tell you, finding foundation that matches is a HUGE challenge. Most foundation either leaves you ashy or orange--neither a pleasant option. Though at first glance, I had high hopes that one of these shades would match my skin tone, in reality, as shown below, they were a little too light. Womp. I do believe though that I would have had a better time finding the correct shade if I was physically testing them out at a storefront rather than online--as detailed as the Foundation Selector was, nothing beats good, old-fashioned arm swatches.




Here's a picture of me with no make-up on at ALL...*gasp* =)




This picture below shows my results after applying Medium Beige evenly all over my face using my beloved Beauty Blender. While this foundation apples like a dream, buttery smooth, soft and even, the shade just wasn't right for me. But if I can locate the correct shade, it has a lot going for it--even application, great coverage without feeling too heavy or sticky and a reasonable price.




Here's a picture to show what I looked like after adding my favorite loose powder on top. Almost...but not quite.




The Lip Lustre included was in the shade Ruby and it turned out to be more of a pink hue rather than a red, as I was expecting!




That being said, I really, REALLY loved this product. I'm super picky when it comes to glosses as most tend to be too sticky or too thick for my liking but this gloss had the shine of a gloss but the feel of a lipstick. Wonderful, pigmented color without the mess of a gloss. LOVE it!




It was a shade lighter on my lips than on my arm but a really flattering shade!
