ZAO Organic Makeup Review

If you've been following the blog for a while, you might have seen my previous review for ZAO Organic Makeup.  If not, you can read it here.

I just learned that ZAO won Best Natural Beauty with a Conscience Award 2014!  What an honor!

ZAO recently sent me their Volume mascara in Ebony and Pearly eyeshadow from their Etnik Collection in pink bronze (117) to review.

The Volume mascara is made of 100% natural ingredients and a minimum of 45% organic.  It definitely made my lashes appear longer and more full, as you can see from the pictures below.  I have very thin and fair lashes and if I only have time to apply one product, it's going to be mascara.  I found that with this mascara, I only need a thin coat.  At first, I was a little heavy-handed with my application and it smudged on my eyelid as well as below my eye.  I like that it goes on smooth and doesn't clump. 

The pink bronze (117) Pearly eyeshadow from their Etnik Collection is a lovely color.  It is made from 100% natural ingredients with a minimum of 10% organic.  It's available in the refillable bamboo packaging making it chic and eco friendly!  It's beautifully pigmented and shimmery.  I think the shade compliments blue eyes nicely and makes them pop!  I used it all over my lid but it would also be great to use as a contour in the crease with a lighter shade all over the lid.  This eyeshadow also lasts all day and didn't crease.  

Here, I have applied the 3 ZAO products I previously reviewed (green concealer, matifying cooked powder luminous complexion 346, and silk foundation Ivory 701)
Added the Pearly pink bronze eyeshadow...

And finally the Volume mascara

I think these are another couple of great products in the Zao lineup!  If you haven't tried any of their products, browse their website and choose your favorites!

I was given these products in exchange for my opinion.  All thoughts are my own.

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!  Seeing it through the eyes of an almost three year old was so much fun!

I know it is all about Jesus and so does she but we had so much fun with family and seeing her get so excited made it one I will not forget!

 I used to get anxious wondering if my daddy would be drunk but this year I didn't have to worry because he has had an awakening year to say the least.  I am thankful he is still here and very thankful for my mom who puts up with a lot and takes care of him better than I ever could even think about!

Merry Christmas!
