Review and Swatches: B. Koi Cosmetics

7 Jun

I recently won first prize in the B. Koi Cosmetics giveaway and they sent me all kinds of beautiful girly amazingness to play with! 

Here is what I won:

I will add links and prices for all the products in case you’re interested in purchasing them. They are VERY affordable and very fun!

What I love most about B. Koi is that most of their cosmetics are vegan and made without any nasty chemicals. I’m a total anti-paraben warrior, so I adore the cosmetic companies that go the extra mile to keep our beauty products hazard-free.

Okay, onward to the goodies! My package came wrapped in pink tissue paper and contained an adorable lollipop and two pouches wrapped in ribbon. So lovely :)

And here are the products. Don’t they look rich?

Octopus Sushi Eyeshadow

Disco Dust Sparks

Do Not Disturb Eyeshadow

The Octopus Sushi eyeshadow is a very feminine purple shade with a pinkish shimmer. Disco Dust is a GORGEOUS pot of glitter, literally. It can be very messy so don’t apply it near a fan or anything. You can apply this on top of your lip gloss to add a punch of dazzle, or use it on your eyes after you apply the B. Koi ‘Sure Thing’ eye serum (it helps it adhere to your skin and reduces fallout). Do Not Disturb is an INTENSE black with a slight hint of purple shimmer, so beautiful, might just be my favorite! This would be a perfect liner especially since you will get that pop of shimmer to open your eyes.

Liplure in Perky Melon & Fuscia Love

The Liplure products are the newest launch from B. Koi (in fact, so new that they aren’t available for purchase yet, haha). They apply semi-sheer on the lip don’t have any flavor. These products are ALL natural which I love! My lips are super sensitive to certain ingredients and I didn’t have any problems wearing these glosses. I layered both of these colors and my lips had a natural “flushed” look to them. Very pretty!

I linked some of the products that I won up at the top of the post along with prices. I didn’t realize until I went to grab the links how AFFORDABLE everything was! Seriously.. like between $2 and $5 per shadow? Wowie! I’ll definitely be purchasing some more B. Koi goodies soon.

    These look nice, that glitter is gorgeous!! Lucky you, I never win giveaways! Well, I did once but it was skincare products, not makeup (aka… not quuuiite as fun! :p)

      Haha, trust me, I rarely win anything. It just makes me 100x more excited when I actually DO :)

    I think another blogger had mentioned the color payoff on the Liplures is PHENOMENAL with a brush; you might want to try it. I think I’m in love with the melon!
