Beauty From the Earth Review

When BFTE introduced their blogger review sets the other day I jumped on it! They had several sets to choose from where you got 3 full size shadows and 3 sample bags for $12, I chose the matte set since I realized recently my collection is seriously deprived of matte shadows. Shipping as always was super fast and I had my package within 3 days of ordering the set. I even got a call from Crystal to make sure I didn't already have the colors she was thinking of sending me which was just another reason to add on my really long list of reasons why I love BFTE in the first place! All the colors I received I am really glad to now own and I can honestly say I have never felt disappointed in this company. I have been ordering for almost 2 years now and had a slight mix up one time and it was fixed quickly and professionally. Sadly, I haven't had time to really play with them and do a look with the new colors I received, but that will come soon and when it does I shall post. Now onto the swatches! :)

L-R Patriot, Grassy, Pride

Pride: A matte kinda lavender color. Blended nicely and was pretty smooth. 

Patriot: A matte dark blue, almost looks Navy in the pot (my camera made it look lighter. :/) Also blended well and I think it was my fav of the bunch. 

Grassy: A matte grass green color. Pigmented and blended well


Patriot (for some reason this looks kinda purpley in the pic, I couldn't get my lame camera to get a good pic of it. ) :(


Top left: Pride Top right: Patriot Bottom: Grassy. (all swatches done on clean dry skin with no primer or anything)

Sample 1: Stunning. This name of this color is perfect a this really is a stunning shade of pink. I have had this color awhile and it is one of my favorite pinks in my collection! Very pigmented and easy to blend. 

Sample 2: Paradise. This is a beautiful frosty blue, looks kinda silver on my skin but I assure you  it is just my camera. Can't wait to play with this one more!

Sample 3: Canyon. I love this color and it will definitely be in my next order! Would be great for brightening the inner corner of your eye, as a highlight or for a day when you just want a light wash of color. It's a beigey color with some gold shimmer to it! 

Top left, Stunning. Top right, Paradise. Bottom: Canyon. Again, all swatches done on clean, dry skin with no primer or anything.

I forgot to mention up top that they came wrapped in black tissue paper and together in a little white bag. Also for those of you wondering, they always come with sealed sifters and the ingredients are listed on the bottom of the jar and are labeled as what they can and can not be used for. I HIGHLY recommend BFTE to anyone, they have excellent customer service and a huge array of colors to suit anyone's tastes. You definitely won't be disappointed if you do!

I hope all you guys and gals have a wonderful Monday!

Hips, whips and strawberry lips,
