A little more beauty on a budget kids with the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Collection. I’m little late to this ballgame as this line was introduced a while back ago and I just got a chance to try it out recently.
You know me I’m such a nitpicker when it comes to drugstore makeup. What do you think? Will I like Sally Hansen’s Natural Beauty Collection?
Jump for it.
More than ever before, today women are more and more drawn towards a green friendly makeup. Concerns about ingredients in cosmetics has become a main focus when selecting cosmetics and skincare. Natural ingredients and paraben formulas are becoming more and more popular in the world and in response to this demand, Sally Hansen developed the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Collection.
If you happen to prefer a paraben-free formula and a more natural makeup line, the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Collection Inspired by Carmindy should appeal.
Made up of lip, eye, cheek, and face cosmetics you’ll have plenty to choose from with a budget friendly price to sweeten the deal. I tried out a few eye palettes, some lipsticks, and gloss and it’s not half bad. I’m normally quite wary of trying out more natural makeup as sometimes a lack of certain ingredients does bring down quality.
Sally Nansen Natural Beauty Instant Definition Eye Palettes are a worthy pick up. At around $7 bucks these palettes contain three shades of shadow for highlighting, defining and contrasting. The shadows are all quite smooth and rich in pigment. They blend beautifully well without a harsh blast of color as they are easy to use for a light color wash or build up for a more dramatic look. They don’t wear so well without prepping and primer and will pretty much disappear within a few hours so make sure to use a good primer to keep them wearing well all day. The palette includes three shades to make up your eye. The lightest shade can be used to highlight your highbrow or as a prepping color wash while the two main shades can be used on lid and crease for a contrasting look. I tried out two of the palettes which were The Earth Palette and The Storm Palette. The Earth Palette makes for a pretty olive green look where as The Storm Palette offers up some perfect shades for a smoky eye look.
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Color Comfort Lipstick are a color rich lipstick with a natural formula. Now these I wasn’t too impressed with. Aside from pigmentation the actual lipsticks failed to thrill me and I didn’t find the formula all that incredible however I did take note that the pigment was quite good for a drugstore brand. The paraben-free formula and budget friendly price make them a good contender in the beauty budget arena.
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Natural Shine Lip Gloss are now my sister’s fav gloss. She thinks these are flipping awesome and even I can admit they are pretty good. Pretty nice pigmentation, a good brush applicator (yay for brushes! hate sponges grrr!), and a moisturizing formula that feels lightweight on the lips makes for a great gloss.
Overall, the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Line is an interesting array of cosmetics that should appeal to those who are ingredient conscious or anyone who is seeking out a cheaper alternative to higher end, higher costing counter cosmetics. These performed fairly well for me and I can see myself further exploring the eye palettes and glosses. I am quite interested in possibly trying out the base products as well now.
