Review: Marie Natie Cosmetics

Monday, April 14, 2014
I was very kindly sent some makeup items to review from the Canadian natural makeup brand - Marie Natie. I hadn't heard of this brand previously but I love their ethos - "Marie researched, sourced ingredients, tested and re-tested products until she was satisfied she had created the best natural products available. Ingredients were carefully selected and tested to create the MarieNatie Cosmetics natural makeup line and her dedication to present the very best ensures that consumers are getting what they deserve." Click here, to read my disclaimer.
*Marie Natie Lip Sparkle (Nearly Wild, 8g, $18): At first the shade scared me slightly as it is quite metallic and bold in the tube but when applied it is sheer so it can be used on its own for a lovely rosy sheen or over the top of lipsticks. I think because it is so sheer you could add it to almost any lipstick or lip pencil. It gives the lips a lovely lush, full look without feeling really heavy or greasy. I like the simple packaging and it is super quick & easy to apply. The scent/taste isn't amazing but overall a nice lip gloss with very little stickiness and the best part - it doesn't contain sulphates, parabens, silicones or synthetic fragrance/dye which is fantastic! ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

*Marie Natie Eyeliner (Brown, 1.2g, $15): Next up is a dark brown liner, I tried it on my arm first and it is super creamy and it doesn't drag the skin at all. The shade is really nice, a great everyday alternative to black liner and it lasts so well. The swatch on my arm lasted all day and I tried it rub it off numerous times with hand soap and water. I haven't tried it on my waterline yet but I think it will be amazing, I will keep this post updated. So far I am very impressed, ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Marie Natie Mineral Eyeshadow (Soiree, 2.35g, $17): This shade is just beautiful, although it isn't a shade I would wear everyday! It is a deep shimmery silver, I always try shadows with my fingers first rather than a brush as you can feel the shadow texture easier. The shadow has a gorgeous smooth, buttery soft texture! Also the pigmentation is just amazing! It applies well to the lids, there is very little fall down and it looks so pretty on the eyes - especially with winged liner. Very impressive, ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Marie Natie Loose Mineral Eyeshadow (Mauve, 4g, $15): Now the shade to me is not a mauve shade, it is definitely more purple, although it is really pretty. The purple contains flecks of tiny shimmer that looks so pretty on the eyes. It is a loose eyeshadow but I found it easy to use, although I definitely prefer pressed shadows. It has good pigmentation and it applies smoothly and evenly to the skin. I will be creating a couple of party looks next month which will probably feature a few of these products, stay tuned! ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Overall, I am very impressed with these products! The eyeliner and pressed eyeshadows are amazing! Also all of the items came in a super cute drawstring bag that can be re-used. And the products came in recyclable cardboard packaging which looked great and is fantastic for the environment. I would definitely recommend Marie Natie - the products I have tried are fantastic and they are suitable for vegans and they are all cruelty free! I want to try more of the pressed shadows, I am so impressed by the one I have. For more information on Marie Natie, click here
