Sante Cosmetics have just arrived in America. This all-natural cosmetics company (originally from Germany) is now available here which is definitely a great thing for us! The two standout products for me are their Eyeshadow Trio and their adorable lip gloss lip pot. The Eyeshadow Trio comes in 6 color combos and all look gorgeous on the site. I tried number 3 (rosewood) which contains a pearly white, beautiful rose and a light plum and they perfectly suit my blue eyes and light skin. I was surprised at the vibrancy of the colors and the lack of creasing (especially considering this is all-natural). I also was impressed that the colors stayed the better part of the day. I love the packaging (square, milky-white, slightly see-through case) and am happy that even though it's all-natural the shadows are good to use for 12 months. Be forewarned, because this is all natural there is a slight odor to the shadows, but it smells more like the inside of a health store than anything offensive. Also, the shadows don't have any smell once they're on your face. The other standout by Sante, is their lip gloss which comes in the same adorable packaging as the shadows. This little pot contains a lovely gloss which is not sticky and has a slight shimmer to it. All the shades look great online, but even though I tried the Shiny Rose (which is just that, a sheer pink color with shimmer), I am drawn to Shiny Cassis which looks like it would be a perfect shade for the fall (to pair with lined lids and dark black mascara). According to their site- free shipping over fifty bucks which means all the better to complete some holiday shopping.
Note: Samples of the products were sent to me by a PR representative working with Sante.
