Hey Ya'll

Soooo here we are with a review on Chinovi Cosmetics, Chinovi is a relatively new company to the Indy world however the products and customer service is amazing! Chinovi is Cruelty free and each individual listing states whether the product is Vegan or non-vegan which is very important to some individuals.  I have made several orders all which have arrived to Australia in a timely manner. The colours are very pigmented all blend smoothly 'butter-y' to the feel. Sample Sizes are generous with plenty of product.

When ordering you have 4 options all in USD value ~ Sample bag - $1.00, Clamshell -$1.25, Full Size Jar w/out sifter - $4.75 and Full Size Jar W/ Sifter - $5.00

Sample Bags and Clamshells look to have about 1/4 tsp of product good for quite a few uses. Full Sized jars average around 1.2 g of product.

Each listing has an ingredients list letting you know the basics of each individual listing.

Sample taken from Desert Rain
ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, magnesium stearate, carnauba wax

Pigmentation: 8/10
Texture: 8/10
Longevity: 7/10
Application: 8/10
Packaging: 9/10

Final thoughts: Colours very pigmented, smooth to apply sample sizes are good, all items were sent out well within the TAT, and arrived in Australia within around 2-3 weeks. I especially like how each colour has individual ingredients and state whether the colour is vegan and/or lip safe. I will definitely be re-purchasing from Chinovi again.
