Orchid Blue Cosmetics Review

I am always on the lookout for new and exciting makeup to share with all of you.  I personally love mineral makeup, it makes my skin look flawless and it's lightweight and doesn't make my skin breakout like some others I've tried.  I love experimenting with different colors on my eyes and lips to see what kind of beautiful combinations I can make.  Unfortunately, makeup is somewhat of a luxury for me because it's so expensive.  So when I buy something I want it to count, I don't want to regret it later.  I recently came across a company called Orchid Blue Cosmetics and I think I found that diamond in the rough I was looking for!

What is Orchid Blue Cosmetics?
According to their website, "Mineral Makeup is all natural.  Unlike traditional makeup that can clog the pores and create skin problems, mineral makeup is created with hypoallergenic loose powders that naturally hydrates and can help heal skin.  Mineral cosmetics will give your skin a healthy glow with youthful effervescence."
Orchid Blue Cosmetics features all mineral makeup including eyeshadow, blush, concealer and foundations, even lip gloss, eyeliners and my favorite, body glitter!  They feature the ingredients to their cosmetics right on their website so you know you're not putting nasty chemicals onto your face.  Here are some of my favorites from Orchid Blue Cosmetics.


The Limited Edition collection features bright, colorful eyeshadows perfect for summer!
Pink Lady from the Limited Edition Happy Hour Collection - $6.95 for 2g
Lucky from the Limited Edition Luck of the Irish Collection - $6.95 for 2g
Scorpio from the Limited Edition Zodiac Collection - $6.95 for 2g

Sky Blue Gel Eyeliner -$6.95
My Review
Shelly from Orchid Blue Cosmetics has been swamped with review requests, so she was only able to send me a few baggies with some samples of her eyeshadows and two sample bags with foundation but these bags contain enough makeup for me to play around with for a couple days so I didn't mind!  I am a glitter fiend and love body glitter, glitter eyeshadows, lip glosses, anything with glitter or a shimmer to it so I was thrilled when I received the samples and saw that most of the eyeshadows contain glitter!  Shelly provided me with a wide variety of colors for me to test out so for about a week I wore each color once to see which colors were fab and which were drab.  One of the first things I noticed was how easily these eyeshadows went on.  With some eyeshadows I have a heck of a time rubbing and blending to prevent creases or blank spots on my eyelids.  I've never had that problem with mineral makeup!  One of the foundations was a little light for me and the other was a little too red but I just mixed them together and they turned out to be pretty close to my natural skin tone.  I love how soft and smooth my skin looks and feels after I applied the foundation.  It gave me a flawless, glowing look.  Overall I was very pleased with how well these cosmetics looked on my face and how nice they felt on my skin.  Both were very lightweight and easy to take off when I needed to.  
Pros: Lightweight, nice coverage, beautiful colors, mineral makeup, most prices are cheaper than what you'll find at Walmart or wherever you buy your cosmetics.
Cons: I wish I had a little more to work with to get the full effect of how this makeup looks and feels.  I really only had a taste. (not literally, haha)

  1. This "company" is a reseller/scam artist.
    They buy ALL of their makeup from Coastalscents.com and dkbtrading.com
    And they get their soaps from Natural Soap Wholesale.
