NYR Organic Review

One of my make-up “must haves” is lip gloss. All sorts of different shades, container shape sizes, and brands. You name a brand, and it’s quite possible I have a tube of it in my make-up bag or in my purse.

My latest lip gloss fave is from the company NYR Organic. Michele Halle, and independent consultant contacted us for a review and giveaway and I was thrilled to try out some new-to-me products. Since lip glosses are my favorites, Michelle sent me these 3 enticing colors: English Rose, Bayberry, and Nude. Each tube of lip gloss contains 0.5 fl. oz. of product, and is available on Michele’s site for $16.00 each.

The first thing I noticed about the lip glosses is how smooth the gloss is. It’s silky and lightweight, and you will hardly notice you have anything covering your lips. At the same time, your lips will have a burst of color and look shiny and healthy. My lips seem to be consistently dry, and the NYR Organic lip gloss has really improved them. The ingredients in the gloss are natural, and contain no parabens or silicone. This is the perfect product for eco-friendly consumers!

In addition to the lip gloss, Michele also sent me a jar of eye shadow in the Camellia shade. NYR Organic eye shadows are a mineral powder, and might be intimidating for users who haven’t worked with powders like this before. The first time I tried it, I used one of my M.A.C. brushes and the powder got all over the place. The second time I tested it out, I wet the tip of my finger and dipped it into the pot. This is the method I am most comfortable using for application. Also, wetting the product added some shine to it. Since Camellia is a very light shade, I like to use it for a base and then apply darker colors over it for a more dramatic look. The NYR Organic eye shadow jars contain 0.04 oz. of product and are available on Michele’s site for $18.00 each. There are a lot of really gorgeous shades, so check them all out!
