I find that the website is very easy to navigate and when you click on a product, there are swatch pictures, ingredients, information about colour family and shimmer, reviews, and related products. I felt that the swatch pictures and product descriptions were reasonably accurate. It also lists whether the product is vegan and gluten free, which is important for many people. There is no lip safety information on the eyeshadows, but you can find more information under the "ingredients" tab. Personally, my safety is regulated by Health Canada and from what I gathered from emailing them, they don't really care what I put on my lips! In the United States, however, things are a bit more strict so you would have to look for specific ingredients in the product listing to find out whether or not the product was lip safe. I had no problems with customer service and I received my package very quickly!
Everything was packaged neatly and securely in pretty tissue paper in the mailing envelope. An invoice with my purchases was included which also had ingredient information printed on it. The eyeshadow comes packaged in sealed sifter jars, which is my preference. I enjoy the simple packaging and labelling of their eyeshadows; they come with a label on top of the jar listing the colour name. The label is durable, which makes me happy. There are no stickers on the bottom of the jar listing ingredients or anything which can be a problem for people who avoid certain additives for various reasons. Personally, I do not feel it is necessary to have ingredient information on a product because I do not avoid any ingredients, nor am I vegan nor allergic/sensitive to anything in particular. I prefer to look up the ingredients online if I really need to know. Overall, the packaging looks simple, clean, and professional.
Here are my thoughts on the eyeshadows I purchased:
THE GOOD: I really enjoy these eyeshadows! The colours are all very pretty and I was pleasantly surprised to see the amount of shimmer in them! The swatches on their website did not show this aspect of the colours as much. The texture of the product is lovely, and they all blend well and apply nicely. They also pass what I like to call "the weekday test." I have a test that I like to do with eyeshadows that involves applying them over UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre in the morning, wearing them all day at work (or for 8 hours or so if they are not work appropriate colours) and then going to the gym/exercising for 1 to 1.5 hours. If my eyeshadow is not yet creased at this point, it has passed. I am happy to say that these passed the weekday test!
