Hey Beautiful People

Here is a Quick review on 2 of the De Leon Cosmetics I got these 2 samples with a primer sample that I was gifted. De Leon is a Australian based mineral makeup company

De Leon is more expensive in the indy scene Full size (2g) is $17.50 AUD and samples $1.00AUD (?1/8 tsp?) however the added costs of high international shipping rates also need to be taken into account.
Full size packaged in a stylish black lidded jar, with rotating sifter and packed by volume. Minimum 2 grams of product in each jar.
Sample size packaged in a ziplock bag. (est about 1/18 tsp)

I love how the owner of Deleon has put individual ingredient lists on each product below is the ingredients for Fool's Gold
ES042. Fool’s Gold.
Ingredients: Mica, titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, bronze powder, silica, yellow #5 lake, palmatic acid, hydrogenated polyisobutene
I found these shades need a sticky base to preform to their highest standard. the shades were both finely milled with no lumps or unblended mica's.

42. Fool's Gold
DL Description - Pearlescent new gold tone.
My Description - A mid tone gold shade

03. Squeaker's Ride
DL Description - Deep purple base with a peacock green duochrome.
My Description - A violet shade with a green Turquoise Duochrome

Product: 8/10
Pigmentation: 7/10
Texture: 8/10
Longevity: 7/10
Application: 4/5
Packaging: 4/5

Final thoughts: These two shades are well pigmented and apply well over a sticky base, they don't adhere well over bare skin. the Duo chrome in Squeaker's Ride is stunning and appears readily over a black base. Pricing is the higher end of Indy boarding with main-stream cosmetic costs however the pricing to get ingredients to Australia is extremely high and need to be taken into consideration.

Overall Rating:  B+
