Zuii Organic Review, Pics, Swatches



I love organic makeup. It just makes me feel more comfortable knowing I'm not putting crazy ingredients on my face. I wish all makeup was organic and natural. Zuii Organic is a company inspired by vision, love, nature and of course organics. I was sent a couple of their products, and let me tell you, LOVE the colors and textures.



The Zuii Organic Eye Shadow in shade Mustard ($21.75) is blended with rose, chamomile and jasmin powders enriched with natural vitamins and minerals. It's a matte beige with somewhat of a satin texture. I love colors like this because it can be blended with pretty much any shade. It's a little light for dark or olive skin tones, but for everyone else, it can be used as a great all over color or as a color in the inner tear duct. Of course the name, "Mustard" threw me off a bit at first. When I think Mustard I think of a nasty darkish yellow, a color I wouldn't want on my eyes. This shade is more of a cream with some gold undertones.





On my finger, you can see it's rather powder like, which I like. There isn't a lot of pigment, but I really enjoyed this color.

Zuii Organic Flora Lip Tint in Frangapani ($22) delivers a high shine finish a rich color with a unique blend of Organic Rose, Beeswax and Aloe Vera that moisturizes and nourishes dry or chapped lips. This is a beautiful light pink with not a ton of color but just enough to create a nice tint of pink with a ton of shimmer and pigment. The scent was a surprise. It's a bit of lime or lemon. Something in the citrus family! This actually goes great over the lipstick that I received as well.. let's talk about that next.




Zuii Organic Lipstick in Primrose ($26.95) is one of the prettiest lipsticks I've came across in quite some time. This is a creamy, matte lipstick with a subtle scent of organic flora. This color is also long lasting, I received about 4 hours of wear time, and that's after eating and drinking. The color looked a little darker on my swatch then it did on my lips or in the above picture.

Final Thought: I'm really loving Zuii Organic. Sometimes organic products can be just "blah" or so so. Not the case with Zuii. My favorite is the Eyeshadow in Mustard Color. I'm interested to see if all of their shadows are as nice as this one.

Zuii Organic is available online at BellaFloria.com or ZuiiOrganic.com
