Wednesday, November 9, 2011
A few days back, I received a few products from Susan of Nature's Brilliance by Sue. I really love the makeup and skincare products she creates. All the credit for introducing me to organic makeup goes to her.

So here are the reviews.

·         Delightful – Peppermint, Spearmint, Rosemary

I requested for the Oriental Gardens scent and its heavenly.

My experience with Nature’s Brilliance by Sue in Oriental Gardens:

The Good
  • The bottle is made of plastic with a black press cap on the top with a small nozzle from which the product comes out. The lotion is quite thick so most of the times, I end up unscrewing the cap and pouring out the lotion to use.
  • The label on the bottle mentions the entire list of ingredients, quantity and the fragrance.
  • The lotion has a thick consistency but is light weight and spreads very easily. Absorbs quickly in the skin within a few seconds of rubbing. Its really moisturising and my dry skin feels hydrated and supple as soon as I apply this. I am using this for my face and hands.
  • The scent of the lotion is very mild and soothing and stays for about an hour. I love to sniff my hands whenever I use this lotion.
  • The packaging makes it easy and convenient to carry in a handbag. No chances of spilling or breakage.
  • Does not contain parabens.
The Not so Good
 Nature's Brilliance by Sue Natural Roll on Perfume in Sensuous 

I have only one word to say about this perfume 'Fabulous'. I love perfumes with strong fragrances but this one, with its soft and soothing fragrance is complete winner. It has hints of cedarwood, ylang ylang, lavender and patchouli.

Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, and Organic Essential Oils. Comes in a beautiful green glass roll-on bottle. This perfume is made fresh upon order. NO PHTHLATES!! NO ALCOHOL!!

I apply a little bit on my wrists and neck. The fragrance reminds me of the woods, gardens and of course nature. The fragrance stays for a good 3-4 hours after which I love to re-apply. It comes in a small glass bottle with a roll-on ball which makes it easy to carry, though glass needs to be handled carefully. I keep it in one of the deep pockets of handbags where there is minimum chance of breakage of glass.

Nature's brilliance by Sue Cranberry Butter lipstick in Bronze Star

Price - $10 

The packaging of the lipstick is very nice. It almost looks like one of the high end brand lipsticks.It shuts tightly and there is no fear of lipstick getting ruined with other makeup or when carried in handbag. The shade is like a dirty brown colour with very fine shimmers which don't look OTT at all. The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and soft with decent pigmentation is wonderful. It spreads evenly in a single swipe. It says for a about 2-3 hours with meals and fades evenly with a light tint.

Swatch of Bronze Star

The only negative I found about this lipstick is that it melts very easily and it cannot be carried in purse/bag during hot and humid summers. I was not at home when the package arrived. So it was left outside by the courier person for about 2 hours and all of it melted. The shade is also a bit brownish which does'nt suit me. Otherwise, I dont find any cons with this lippy.
