BM Beauty is a new makeup line founded by Laura McComiskie and ex Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt. In this post I will be reviewing some of their eyeshadows and a blush. I will be reviewing their powder foundation in a separate post.

BM Beauty boasts good quality products which are...
1. Cruelty-free.  BM Beauty products have the stamp of approval from the BUAV and PETA, which are large campaigns against animal testing.
2. Free from bismuth oxychloride, parabens, nano particles and synthetic dyes and fragrances.
3. Good for your skin! Their mineral foundations contain zinc oxide which is a natural anti-inflammatory which is great for spot prone skin.
4. Lightweight and allow your skin to breathe. You can create a flawless complexion without clogging pores and causing further breakouts. Skin perfection with a 'no make up' feel.

They also have super soft synthetic brushes instead of animal hair brushes.

EYESHADOWS

I tried 5 of their eyeshadows, 4 of which were sample sizes and 1 was in a full size pot. I was pretty impressed with all of the colours, and the textures were good too. Most of them felt pretty smooth, with the exception of Marble Sparkle, the only gritty one. They work fine applied without a base, and they're so lightweight I can barely feel they're there! I'm sure they would adhere better with a base though.

Platinum Tiara is a silver with a slight purple tinge. Its pretty frosty.

Marble Sparkle is a glittery white gold. This one was the only one that felt a bit gritty. Beautiful colour though.

Her Majesty is a gorgeous pink gold duochrome. It is pretty frosty too.

Dusty Road is a tan colour with gold sparkles.

Mississippi Mud is a dark chocolate brown colour, the only matte of the bunch. This feels so soft and creamy, and it is a fantastic colour for the crease.

BLUSH

Velvet Dawn blush is a super soft warm medium pink colour with a few gold sparkles. It is a lot warmer in colour than Her Majesty eyeshadow as you can see in the swatch below:

Overall, I love the quality of their eyeshadows (with the exception of Marble Sparkle which is a gritty glittery hot mess) and Velvet Dawn blush. They feel very smooth and light on the skin.
The only problem I have with these products however is that they are loose powders, which makes it a bit more messy to use. Although the covers tightly seal the jars, I am also wary about carrying them in my handbag as I fear they might suddenly open and spill. If they can press these powders without compromising the textures and pigmentation, it would be fantastic!

What do you think? ♥

  1. Ar first I didn't realize those were tops next to the make-up. I thought you had a HUGE amount of eyeshadow spread out on the table. =)

    Hope you had a nice weekend.
