A Review - De Leon Cosmetics Eye Shadows

House Keeping – all products below were gifts and I am not in any way shape or form getting paid for this review. All opinions are my own!!!

Please Click on the photos to see an enlarged picture =)

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

Credit Rating!

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+

Lets get back to Blogging!!!

Hey Beautiful People
So firstly I just want to apologise for the lack of posts I know its not a excuse but I totally lost motivation and drive!!! but I am here to get back into blogging with a passion I have a bunch of new reviews lined up as well as some fun tips, about me's and more coming to a screen near you ;)
I am drawing some quick draw inspiration from random make up challenges I am not doing a every day one just sporatic posts semi beauty/personal I hope you enjoy it

Here is todays question/topic also please feel free to ask questions for me to answer in the comments below =)
"When Did you Start Putting on Makeup"
Well as most girls do I would play in my mum's makeup bag when she was getting ready if I was good she might have put on a 'swipe' of blush or a dab of lippy but I first started using make up (buying and using it myself) when I was about 12-13 years old I started boarding school when I turned 12 (year 8 in Australia) and my boarding school was co-ed year 8 to 12 (Australian school system) so I was surrounded by older girls who would use makeup.
Being in that environment I was exposed to a lot of different styles ect I remember I started to wear a tinted moisturiser (the name escapes me) 2 shadow brush, 1 blush brush  and 1 palette from Australis (a combo blush, powder, mascara, lip gloss, shadows ect) I would go to school with 1 colour shadow on my lids no primer!!! I remember my makeup being all smeared between recess and lunch!!
I remember my teacher would always tell me off in the morning (teacher in bold)
"channy whats school makeup policy"
"ummm no makeup"
"whats on your face"
"*sigh* don't wear it tomorrow!!"
Those were the days ;) Clearly my obsession has grown into a passion I even remember ripping pages out of my dolly and girlfriend magazines with pretty makeup look or tips so I could try and learn them haha I had a huge folder full of them =p
so here is my question  to you all... When did YOU start wearing makeup?
