Since 1992, Ecco Bella has been known as a pioneer in the natural beauty field. Back then, it was virtually impossible to find organic materials for our products. By using organics we not only purify our bodies, we also support ethical farmers who need and appreciate our business. Ecco Bella products are 50%-70% organic (from website).
I love using natural makeup, it feels better on my skin, and doesn't seem to cause my sensitive skin to break out like many commercial brands. When I found Ecco Bella, I was excited - I'd tried mineral and other natural / organic cosmetics, but I'd never tried anything with flower waxes! It's one of nature's best kept secrets - the delicate wax that forms a protective coating on flower petals. Without it, the bloom would quickly wilt under the scorching sun and drying wind. And what flower wax does for flowers, it can do for your skin. Flower waxes cushion the pigments so make-up feels better and lasts longer, while the natural colors self-adjust to your skin tone.
I had the chance to try Ecco Bella's Elite Collection - a carefully chosen collection of some of their most popular shades for lips, cheeks and eyes. A beautiful neutral palette of colors with shimmery and deeper shades, all in one convenient compact. I've been using my Elite Collection for a week now, and love it more each day! Ecco Bella is definitely my favorite makeup line to date - the eyeshadows and blushes go on velvety smooth, and feel amazing on. They also last the longest of any makeup I've tried - I do very little touch up, and they remain fresh and bright. The compact includes 4 eyeshadows, Sapphire, Smokey Mauve, Vanilla and Camel; 1 Shimmer Powder: Star; 1 Powder Eyeliner: Charcoal; 4 lipsticks: Sangria, Primrose, Napa Grape Frost, Chocolate; 2 glosses: Pleasure and Peace; and 2 blushes: Nutmeg, Earthy Rose. I never wear purple or blue shadows as I have dark circles under my eyes, but am able to wear Ecco Bella's Sapphire and Smokey Mauve as the colors do adjust to skin tone - on me they have a grey tint that makes my eyes pop. The powder eyeliner is also amazing and super easy to use, and I love how this provides soft definition for a finished look. I'm also in love with both blushes, I usually don't wear blush as I have a lot of redness to my cheeks, but the soft earthy tones highlight my cheekbones while toning down the red.
