TUESDAY TEST-DRIVE: THE ECO PALETTE

Check out the latest product we put to the test    

We checked out the Natural Wonder Powders Palette from Josie Maran, the former long-time Maybelline model and eco-enthusiast. The palette, which is infused with argan oil (the most popular ingredient in Maran’s cosmetics line), is fragrance- and paraben-free and comes in biodegradable packaging.

Love It: The powders go on sheer and are easy to layer together for a soft and pretty finish. Plus, all of the colours coordinate well and are great picks for Spring and Summer.
Leave It: The palette was a little bit smaller than we were expecting (it’s a bit bigger than the palm of our hand) so the colours run a bit small, making the face shades a bit hard to apply. Overall, it may be a bit tricky for everyday use, but the beach holiday hues and compact size make it the perfect pick for a vacay makeup stash.
