INIKA Mineral Eyeshadows and Organic Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Hey guys! 
Today I am sharing more vegan makeup with you guys and what makes it even better is that its halal, organic and made with natural and safe ingredients. I have three beautiful eyeshadows and two highly pigmented eye liners to share with you guys today. All of these are from INIKA Cosmetics.
The eyeshadows are in the shades called Peach Fetish, Gunmetal and Forest Gold. The eyeliners are in Graphite and Green Lagoon.
Lets begin with pics and my review :)




INIKA MINERAL EYESHADOWS

These eyeshadows are soo pigmented and soft in texture, it feels great to apply them on my lids. Although, they are packed with color, its always best to apply mineral pigments with a primer. I often dust Peach Fetish all over my lids on casual days and I find it to stick around for quite sometime but I still love to use a primer. If you dont have a primer, juts apply your tinted moisturizer or liquid/cream foundation to provide a sticky base to mineral pigments.

Gunmetal: Described as molten silver with a hint of purple and can be used wet or over black liner. To me this is a cool toned grey with silver and purple. It has a shimmer finish and looks amazing over a darker base. I feel this is a great neutral shade for light to medium skin tones

Forest Gold: This is described as a deep green/gold with a black background. To me its a forest green shade on a deep gold base. This shade is great for a night out and makes a nice spring color. I often doa  smokey eye with this using Forest Gold on lid and matte black on the outer V, blended across the outer crease with some matte light brown eyeshadow all over the crease. It looks AMAZING!!

Peach Fetish: This is my go to nuetral shade. I am a peach frost gal and I love using peach on my lids for daily wear. I often pull them of for the night time too and they look amazing.

SWATCHES

No primer has been used for these swatches and the shades look amazing on their more. This is one of the many reasons why I love mineral pigments as eyeshadows

CERTIFIED ORGANIC EYELINERS
These are my first ever organic certified eyeliners and I am very happy with the quality. They apply smoothly and are pigmented. Both colors are from the softer side of the spectrum, so they do not really pop as other darker colors do, but I love using them along with eyeshadows for lower lash line. You know, I always and always wear black eye liner on my lashes, so I have left colored ones for the lower lash line :D

GRAPHITE
This is described as a charcoal grey with a hint of silver. To me this shade is quite close to the Gunmetal eyeshadow shown above. Its a nice color and should look more flattering on cooler skintones than my warm complexion.


GREEN LAGOON
Described as a divine, metallic medium green shade and thats what it is. I love using this on my lower lash  line. It brings so much energy to my usually tired eyes. I feel a pop of green looks great on my warm complexion.
