Orglamix Review and Giveaway!

**Contest Closed**About 5 years ago, Cheri gave birth to her first baby girl and her skin reacted badly. Hormones will do that to ya. So of course the natural next step is to apply makeup to mask the problem, but this just added flame to the fire. Regular makeup irritated her skin even more. After some research, she discovered mineral makeup which has no fillers, preservatives or other potential irritants.
Cheri says, "I couldn’t believe that there was no gorgeous, healthy yet affordable range available. The few companies selling mineral makeup at that time were very bland, offering pale colors packaged in cheap containers which did not appeal to me. That week I mixed my first batch of foundation, called it Orglamix (organic glam) and have been selling it ever since. All of my buyers -up until Etsy- have been word-of-mouth referrals from other customers."

Her shop Orglamix, is anything but bland. Browse around and you'll see just what I mean. Stunning photography depicts her products very well; It makes finding your color a piece of cake! Cheri will even mix a custom color for you if you can't find what you need!

There's more to the shop than her amazing eyeshadows. Cheri also sells great accessories like the Bamboo Brush Set and take a look at this Goodie Bag which is perfect for Halloween. Other than mixing her mineral makeup in her lab (which is her attic!), Cheri adores Halloween, cupcakes and sparkly things!

Cheri sent me the Brimstone, Olive and Espresso eyeshadows. These colors are perfect to achieve a 'smoky eye' look. I am no expert on applying makeup, and yet I found this very easy to blend and quite user-friendly. I did take a picture of my eye when I was done, but I decided not to post, becauser her photographs are a much better representation of her line.

This truly is wonderful makeup, that doesn't break the bank--Eyeshadows start at just $3.99 a piece! I will definitely be coming back for more.

BUY IT! Mention The Penny-Pinching Mama Blog feature and Cheri will include a free "Potion" eye shadow with your order!
