My love affair for Canadian merchandise and buying native has grown ever deeper and I’ve the pandemic to partially “thank” (I at all times really feel a bit bizarre utilizing the phrases “pandemic” and “grateful” in the identical sentence) for my exuberance in attempting to “preserve it within the household” this yr. I do not wish to be a kind of individuals who get unhappy when native locations or companies shut having invested zero effort into preserving them afloat. Now, meals is one factor since all of us get hungry and have to eat, however magnificence is subsequent stage for me as a result of I want completely NOTHING so I am significantly investing not simply cash, however area in my already overflowing drawers so the merchandise have to hit a sure stage of bougieness that I’ve grow to be accustomed to.
Bought by me
Phytosurgence is from Vancouver with all of their merchandise made proper right here in my hometown. Already, I’m and then I see they’ve make-up (skincare too!) that appears fairly beautiful! There aren’t many small companies who make make-up as it’s often skincare and bathtub merchandise that dominate the small batch area so seeing make-up is at all times very thrilling. The third side of this model that resonated with me was their stance on transparency with out the concern mongering and scare ways that manufacturers like those with elephants as their brand use (I believe they’re essentially the most well-known manufacturers who do that, however there are SO MANY). You additionally will not catch them utilizing the phrase “non-toxic” which I’m sorry to say I personally use to make use of 5 years in the past as a result of I did not know any higher or slightly what inexperienced magnificence ultimately got here to imply.
Although I did buy one skincare product from Phytosurgence, what REALLY obtained me had been the gorgeous swatches I used to be seeing of their new Flash Fluorescence Cream Eyeshadows. I’m all in regards to the eyes now so something that’s metallic and/or sparkly, however most significantly long-lasting has me !
There are six shades that every one seemingly go collectively and but are stable sufficient to be worn independently of one another. As Phytosurgence began with skincare, I used to be not shocked to see some skincare within the method with CoQ10 added as an antioxidant, however with hydrocarbon solvents to seal in hydration and give it lasting energy rivaling the “massive guys”!
The method is exclusive to different cream shadows I’ve utilized in that it’s extremely buildable. These shadows are extremely creamy, however I discovered it to be extra workable than different cream shadows as a result of it felt thinner and extra spreadable throughout the lid. You need to use both a flat brush or fingers to use these shadows. I am very a lot about utilizing my fingers with cream shadows when they’re in pots so I discovered it greatest to pat the shadow on my lids in layers. I used the identical technique with these eyeshadows as I do with nail polish – apply thinner layers and construct up! This additionally means that you may unfold out the color to be far more delicate for extra of a wash of color to the eyelid. You additionally need not work with superhuman pace to get these onto your eyelids earlier than dry down. You’ve gotten will PLENTY of time to ensure the eyeshadow is the place you need it to be!
At first, I used to be hesitant about how typically I’d put on a extra dramatic-looking shade like “Deeply Rooted”, however due to the method I simply put on the shade a little bit bit thinner and extra diffusely throughout my complete lid and then mix out the sides with a fluffy brush.
Solar Stress and Amber Aura
That is one in every of my favorite mixtures: Solar Stress on the inside third of my eyelid and Amber Aura to smoke out the sides and alongside the forehead bone! I’d glow like this ALL THE TIME! I’m additionally carrying the Phytosurgence Pores and skin Spark Blush in Fume which is LOVELY.
I’ve solely had Velvet Leaf for per week as I positioned a second order after having fun with the primary three shadows I purchased! Whereas I’m in all probability going to be carrying extra of the opposite shades, Velvet Leaf is an extremely impartial inexperienced that I can see myself having fun with for Winter.
Ultimate verdict: I’m simply so happy with all the pieces and I can’t advocate Phytosurgence and the Flash Fluorescence Cream Eyeshadows extra! They final all day with no creasing on me (with primer) and nonetheless look vibrant in color. There’s additionally 4g of product in every pot, so I will probably be SET for awhile!
