I stumbled upon Ecco Bella beauty products online and what I gathered at first glimpse was that it was an organic makeup line; mineral and plant based. I have come across many “natural” and “organic” makeup lines lately but the one thing that I found with Ecco Bella beauty products was its philosophy on compassion towards animals. Sure, they all say their products are “cruelty-free” but Ecco Bella takes it a step further. It’s about compassion towards all living creatures and nature as a whole. I do not have to be Vegan to understand that. Compassion is an act, not just a feeling. The opposite of compassion is indifference or cruelty. Ecco Bella has a history and you can see why compassion is so important to founder, Sally Malanga in the video at the end of this review.
What I didn’t realize with Eco Bella is that it’s not all about the toxins and chemicals, it’s about the respect for the customer and their needs and beliefs. And chances are if the products are not cruelty-free the makeup line is also not concerned with the ingredients in their products.
I received two products from the Enlightenment Collection.
The first product was the Mystic powdered eyeliner which can be used wet (as a liner) or dry (as a shadow). At first sight, I was a little nervous about applying it on my blue eyes. It’s a deep electric blue. It came with Celestial eye shadow, a gold/yellow pigment. I got even more nervous because I’m a “natural girl” when it comes to wearing makeup. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll do a beautiful makeover on someone else but those are not colors I would purchase.
I also received Purity blush, which is a great color for my skin tone but can be used as a highlighter on deeper skin.
