With all of the concerns about ingredients in beauty products today, it is nice to find a beauty line that prides themselves on using natural, organic & cruelty free ingredients. When I first stumbled upon Ecco Bella, I was super impressed with their eco-friendly packaging. I love the entire concept of recyclable AND refillable compacts! All of their eyeshadow, eyeliner and blush colors are made to fit in the compact wells, giving you the ability to create your very own interchangeable color palette! The eco-friendly packaging alone made me want to try Ecco Bella, but then as I began to read about their beauty products, I definitely had to try it.
Ecco Bella was kind enough to send me the above refill compacts, eyeshadow, eyeliner and blush. The pretty packaging is the first thing I noticed when I opened the box. I love the colorful flower blooms and after taking a closer look, I realized that the products contained actual flower wax. Cool, huh? Ecco Bella says that flower wax is one of nature's best-kept secrets because the delicate wax coating protects flower petals from the elements. Ecco Bella uses flower wax in their FlowerColor Mineral Makeup to shield and enhance beauty. The protective layer keeps your natural moisture from seeping through your makeup, so your look stays fresher, longer. (Glad I'm in on the secret!) I was able to choose from a wide range of luscious hues to find the perfect shade of eyeliner, eyeshadow and blush.
Since I have sensitive eyes and skin, I couldn't wait to try Ecco Bella! Choosing safe, non-toxic eyeshadow, eyeliner and other eye makeup is very important to me because of the thin and delicate skin around the eyes.

The video really doesn't do the the makeup justice, but you can see how the eyeliner goes on smooth!
Begin by washing your face and applying a light moisturizer. If you use an undereye cream, do not get too close to the eye or oils can be deposited onto your lashes and smudge your mascara. If you are not used to blending shadow, try applying one coat of a brightening color like EcoBella's Heather or Fawn on the entire eyelid. If the eyeshadow color is light enough, take it up to the brow bone. Next apply a small amount of a deeper color like EcoBella's Earth eyeshadow. Begin at the outer corners and blend into the crease of the eyelids. Blend well. Using a small angled brush, dampen the tip with a drop of water. Pick up some of the powder eyeliner by sweeping the brush back and forth. Make a fine line at the base of eyelashes. The charcoal liner glides on super smooth, is pigment rich and lasts all day. I love that I can transition to a smokey eye by applying eyeliner dry and along my lash line, using the sponge tip applicator provided. Follow with a (wet) line along the lashes for added definition. Charcoal works beautifully (as shown in the video). Use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes. Apply 1-2 coats of mascara, allowing dry time in between coats.
Instant Pick Me Up!
Purity blush is sheer, lightweight and adds a beautiful glow to my skin. After 8 hours, my skin looked fresh and the apples of my cheeks were still peachy-pink.
Of all the Ecco Bella products I tried, the FlowerColor powder eyeliner is my absolute must-have eyeliner! It is versatile, stays on all day, is gentle on my eyes and makes my eyes pop! It doesn't get any better! The eyeshadow is highly pigmented and when blended well, looks great. I reviewed dark taupe which was a little dark for my skintone, but my daughter is hooked and it complements her dark eyes and skin beautifully! The blush works beautifully with my light skintone and sweeps on sheer with a light, natural glow.
