If you are familiar with this blog, then you have already read that I prefer creamy makeup. Not only do I find it to be more practical, but I also think that it looks more natural. Recently, Afterglow Cosmetics gave me reason to reconsider my preference.
The first Afterglow Cosmetics products that I tried were the new Organic Infused Eco Eye Shadows*. They are described as crease-proof, long-wearing, and natural pigmented eye shadows, that are also excellent for sensitive eyes. They are also infused with antioxidant-rich Organic Açaí Berry and Organic Goji Berry.
The shades that I picked are Still Life, a matte rich chocolate brown, and Baroque, a satin light peach amber color. They are singularly packed in an eco-friendly compact with mirror. When I first touched them they felt very “powdery”, so I was afraid that they would be crumbling and cause major fall out under my eyes. Instead, they applied evenly and smoothly, and felt very “silky” on my lids. They are also very pigmented, and the dark brown shade, Still Life, is particulalry intense and long-wearing. I did not experience any smudging, nor creasing, nor fading, nor fall out.
The eyeshadows retail for $ 21 and are available at AfterglowCosmetics.com. Afterglow also offers refills for the compacts, which can be used to refill the original compact or to be put in a palette.

Final Thoughts: I think that these new eyeshadows by Afterglow Cosmetics are really worth trying. Their formula is amazing, especially considering how clean the list of their ingredients is. As a personal preference, I do not wear eyeshadows on a daily basis, (especially powder ones), but I have actually been reaching for Still Life almost daily, and I plan to try more shades. Moreover, pressed shadows are so much more practical compared to loose powders.
I hope this review was helpful. Have you tried any Afterglow Cosmetics products? If yes, is there anything that you recommend trying?
