Saint Cosmetics Vegan Eye Palettes
Today's post is on two of the Saint Cosmetics Eye Palettes and it's also a collab with Esha from The Aftr Glow. Esha is a beautiful green beauty blogger who loves to share her natural, non-toxic finds through her blog & Instagram. We are both gonna share our thoughts on the Naturally Nude palette and also share a look that we did with it.
Saint Cosmetics is a luxury Canadian, plant-based, gluten-free, cruelty-free and toxic-free makeup brand. Plant-based means that not all of their products are vegan some contain beeswax, so if you are 100% vegan, make sure to read the ingredients before ordering.
More info straight from their website:
OUR PRODUCTS ARE FORMULATED WITHOUT
Parabens, Petrochemicals, Nanoparticles, Dyes, Sulfates, Silicone, Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs), Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Triclosan, Petrolatum, Coal Tar, Artificial Preservatives, Fragrance, or any other chemicals suspected of potential health risks.
Each palette has 5 shadows and a dual-ended brush. The packaging itself is stunning, very esthetically pleasing with the white and gold hard plastic. The price tag is pretty high, with a whopping $55 per palette (12.5 g / .44 oz). I know it might not sound like a good deal but if you were to buy each eyeshadow individually from the Saint Cosmetics website, it would be $135. Each single shadow retails for $27 each!!! Yea, that's expensive! Lol. With that being said, I would not pay full price and not because it's not a great product but because I don't like to pay full price for stuff, I mean who does, right. I always try my hardest to wait for a good sale, and that was the case with these palettes. I got both at a discounted price, one I got at the Indie Beauty Expo for like 40% off and the second one I ordered from Costco, they have 4 of the 6 palettes for 50% off! I really suggest getting any of the palettes from there, you can even buy two for the price of one. Now that's a good deal.

This was the first palette I bought, obviously, I loved it so much I had to pick up another. If you love peachy shades this is a palette you might enjoy. Although I really love this palette I use the other one more often. This palette only has 2 mattes and the rest are either shimmers or satins, which is not a bad thing but I do prefer more mattes in a palette. I find that this palette is not as versatile as Naturally Nude, there is also a shade I'm not crazy about it's the Heavens Gate Gold, this shade looks like a light peach at first glance. But it actually has a bit of a purple pink shift. Peach or nectars are quite popular and if you were looking a natural & vegan option this is a nice one to try. If you want to see this palette in action, I used it in a GRWM video. You can watch it here.
Overall, the palettes are awesome, the quality is amazing, no kick up and most don't have fall out. They stay on all day without creasing, but that can be because I use an eyeshadow primer prior to applying the shadows. The brush that comes with it, is not that great but it's not the worst. Let's just say it doesn't get used much.
Now here are the looks that Esha & I created using the Naturally Nude palette.
For my look I used Addicted to Love as a transition shade, Hot to Trot on the outer V, Envy on the lid and Passionate Peach as an inner corner highlight.
Here is Esha's look, please check out her post see what shades from the Naturally Nude palette she used, here.
