Silk Naturals Review + Swatches

DSC_0061

Switching to healthier, more natural makeup options can get expensive really quickly. Enter Silk Naturals. An extremely affordable online store filled with natural makeup. Silk Naturals specializes in healthier alternatives to big name brands and product. Have you been coveting the new Anastasia Highlight kits? They’ve got a dupe. Looking for a great Urban Decay Naked Palette alternative. They’ve got a dupe. Nars Orgasm? Yep, they’ve got that too (dupe.)

After hearing rave reviews from Laura’s Natural Life and The Green Bunny, I decided to place a “small” order. Here’s what I picked up.

I picked up their Green Eyes Shadow Kit which comes with two loose shadows (Model and Prowl) and the Stick ’em eye primer. I picked up a sample of their HD Foundation in N40 and a sample of their Perfecting Powder. I also picked up one of their Velvet Matte Lipsticks in Bustier. Because I am under the misconception that I need more lipsticks…

Here are the shadows swatched out for you! River was sent as a free sample with my purchase and I actually really like it! It’s a beautiful periwinkle with a slight shimmer. I’m thinking a blue spotlight eye look with this beauty! Yes, that’s happening. Stay tuned.

Model is a gorgeous tan/peach/pink shimmer. No big chunks of glitter just beautifully shimmery. Prowl is described as a blackened rose. It really is great for green eyes because it has the slight purple undertone that makes green pop. These are all super duper soft and just blend beautifully! All of Silk Naturals eyeshadows are $4.50 per pot. I mean…yes please. If you really don’t like loose shadows they do sell pressing medium and kits to do that yourself.

Here are the swatches for the Velvet Matte Lipstick in Bustier and the HD Cream Foundation in N40. Bustier is a gorgeous deep nude lipstick with a slight hint of browny pink. Love. Also the formula of this is to die for. Seriously, so good. It’s very creamy but still has a matte finish. If you want it to be super matte just blot it down. It lasts for hours and is not drying in the least. I’m really impressed with this! Note that this is not a liquid lipstick so it will transfer if you eat or drink but it reapplies smoothly.

Silk Naturals does a really good job with their foundation shade range. They have a Cool, Neutral and Golden shade range. I highly recommend picking up a sample (it’s $0.99). It’s a great way to try the formula and see if the color fits well. Super creamy but still has nice coverage. I’m liking it so far!

Final Verdict: Yes. All of it, yes. I have a look coming up on Wednesday for you guys featuring most of these products. I am really pleased. Could the packaging be a bit more luxe? Sure. But, the price is terrific!! Highly recommend! I am definitely tempted to pick up more of their lipsticks…and eyeshadows…and face products…okay, more of everything.

    Oh wow, I had no idea about this brand at all but judging by all the swatches, I am missing out. Thank you for the recommendations, I’m going to check out how much is shipping and the products in CAD.

      I’m in love with the Silk Naturals Velvet Matte Lipsticks!
      So far, I own Mulberry, Rose, Sweet Tart, and Red Hot. Ruby and Merlot are on my “radar” as well.
