Green People: Impressive Natural Makeup

I "discovered" Green People in September and ever since day one I've been really impressed with their products. I've tried their facial oil (which is just beautiful), their makeup remover (which I loved) as well as talc-free powder blush, and I wasn't disappointed! Today I've got three more of Green People's beauty products to share with you - their Volumising Mascara, their Illuminating Eye Duo and their Night Forest Eye Duo. I've been trying these out for a while now and I've been very glad to have some more natural makeup in my routine, especially some talc-free eyeshadows. I've shared my thoughts on each product in a mini-review format but if there's anything else that you'd like to know then please do leave me a comment or tweet me (@OneLittleVice) for a quicker response.

As far as I'm concerned, Green People's mascara wands are totally on point - I love these sorts of lash, separating and defining brushes which seem to add tremendous length! The formula is also really good, especially for a product that contains 98% natural ingredients, using natural pigments to achieve it's dark black colour. However, I don't personally think this mascara offers much in the way of volume but it does seriously lengthen my lashes and lasts from morning until night without any flaking or smudging. I actually found that on my lashes it outperformed my Maybelline the Falsies Mascara in terms of longevity, and I feel much more comfortable reaching for a Green People's makeup especially when it comes to an everyday essential like mascara! Overall, I'm really impressed and I'll be reaching for this mascara over others that I own because I really like it. 

One Little Vice Beauty Blog: Green People Eye Duo Swatches

Green People's Illuminating Eye Duo really does what it claims - it brightens and enlivens eyes, making your face look brighter and more 'awake'. The shades are subtly different, one is a pure shimmering white and there other is a very pale, pearlescent pink. I love using both of these on the inner corners of my eyes, but I do find that I need to use a primer to help them last throughout the day. Because these eyeshadows don't contain talc (to which my skin is sensitive) I can also use them as skin highlighters - applying them on my brow bone or across my cheek bones. I really like both of the colours, they're very wearable and aren't too stark, and they aren't too powdery. These will be particularly good for anyone ensitive to talc who's looking for an easy-to-wear, multi-tasking addition to their everyday beauty routine.

The Night Forest Duo really appealed to me because I loved the look of the colours - a deep brown that's perfect for a brown smokey eye, and a lighter, golden brown that's good for both brightening the eye area and adding some subtle definition. I find that these eyeshadows need an eye primer to last throughout the day on my oily eyelids but they also work really well when used as liners. Below, I've included photos of me wearing the dark brown shade along my upper and lower lash line. You can see that it gives a deep smokey look that isn't too dark or harsh. I love that these eyeshadows contain Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E, and I feel as though Green People offers wonderful skin-friendly makeup that I feel really comfortable reaching for on an everyday basis.

  3. I love the look of all of these! Natural make up is my fave as my eyes get so sensitive sometimes and everything irritates them! x
