I feel that the color online is pretty accurate. It is dark but very nice color for me. The color seems to stay well for me and goes on smooth. Happy with purchase.
mulberry eye shadow
I use the mulberry eye shadow as blush, it is beautiful. Love the vanilla/mocha eye shadow, and all the facial and hair and body care products.
There's certainly a lot of product, but it's not as smooth and easy to apply as I'd hoped; even though it's pressed, it's still a bit messy to apply.
I tried two 'Blow-Out Sale' colors, the Matte Cocoa and the Mulberry, and the colors seemed to match the monitor. But, the Mulberry has a grey undertone I wasn't expecting, and the Matte Cocoa is darker than I'd anticipated, especially since the description says 'light brown color'. It's a very deep brown, and not a 'cocoa', in my opinion.
Not the worst makeup purchase, but didn't love it either.
Since switching over to chemical free makeup, I've been using only loose powder mineral eyeshadows, which are messy and not user-friendly. I tried the Mulberry eyeshadow when it was on sale and just love it! It's pressed but very soft, and goes on as a rich but subtle berry shade. Very flattering as an accent with brown/hazel eyes. I will definitely try other shades!
Color is off
Online it looks like a burgandy wine color, but actually it's a plum wine. I've been wearing it for a couple of days now, and I LOVE it. I just wish the pictures of the products had accurate colors and swatches on different skin tones.
Dear Real Purity,
Maybe you could have a place where we could send in and post photographs of ourselves wearing the makeup seleections. Many people have described how they use the eye shadows in this section. It might be nice advertising if we could see and share those examples! :)
I love the real purity line of eyeshadows. They have such nice colors and I just love knowing that I'm putting something natural on my eyelids.
