Neve Cosmetics 'French Royalty Collection'

Today I'm going to show you all some of the products from the new French Royalty Collection by Neve Cosmetics. Neve Cosmetics are right up my street as they are a cruelty free brand, as well as with the majority of their products also being vegan.

Neve Cosmetics currently have a number of collections out at the moment with the latest being the one I'm going to review today. The collection consists of four French Royalty Mineral eye shadows, two mineral blushes and two new pastello eye pencils. Today I will look at the Eye shadows and Eye Pencil from the range, with the blushers featuring in an upcoming post.
Eye shadows from the collection: Versailles* £6.50 Collier* £6.50 Sang Bleu* £6.50 Chateau* £6.50 
(Prices for 2g).   
 Pastello Eye Pencil in Silver* £4.95
 This pencil is beautiful and what I found was that when it was blended the glitter particles all separated creating a lovely sparkly shimmer...I can see me doing this for Christmas.
Left to right we have 'Sang Bleu, Chateau, Versailles and Collier'

Once I swatched these I knew I had found a brand that I wanted to try more, I mean, just look at the colours...they're divine!

I've never used mineral make-up before so I was pretty excited to use these products. I found that to apply them with a dry brush was quite tricky as they did not seem to want to sit very well on my eyelid, however, this soon changed once I dampened my brush a little.

I decided to test out Sang Bleu and Collier on my eyes along with the eye pencil. I'm a sucker for anything blue and purple!

I really liked using these eye shadows once I got the hang of them. I'm looking forward to trying much more daring looks with them next time. I found that they lasted pretty well throughout the day and they came off very easily when it came to my evening cleansing routine.

Neve Cosmetics can be purchased from CuteCosmetics which is one of my favourite websites at the moment as all the products they sell are cruelty free so it saves the endless searching and uncertainty that often comes when looking for cruelty free products.

What do you all think?
