making it's way across USA. They have a special site just for interested USA buyers, here is the link: Couleur CaramelThe first product I received and tried is the Nomad Touch (it's vegan). And to be honest since the writing was in french I had to do a little google search to find out if this was a lip product or cheek product. I found out that it's a cheek color and cream eyeshadow
. Two products in one! I love products that have more than one use!THUMBS UP:
- 100% natural ingredients.
- Mineral oil-free.
- No paraffin.
- No silicone.
- No oil-derived products.
- No PEG.
- No synthetic colouring.
- No synthetic emollient.
- No synthetic oil.
- Products are not tested on animals.
- Use of recyclable materials.The packaging on all of the Couleur Caramel products are neat and definitely identify with their brand identity. They are natural looking and use neutral colors which also pops the color of any of the product inside. The top of the pop on lid is clear which makes it very simple to see what product you are grabbing for instead of having to read the side or bottom of it.When I first went to touch and feel the texture of this cream, I was in for a surprise. I thought it would be more solid than it was. It was almost as when my finger touched it it melted and made it easier to pick up product which was great that i didn't have to do a million swipes before getting any pigment. If you do swirl your finger in it to much it can melt rather quickly so be careful, you don't want to make a mess :-PWhen applying it to my cheeks with my fingers, it went on very smoothly like a liquid and dried to an almost powdery
feel to it almost instantly. It rubbed into my skin with ease and it gives a natural rosy/pinched cheek look which I find very cute! The only concern was it had a little but of a gritty feel to it when rubbing it in. Nothing unbearably or strong, just a slight texture I found when using it. Just by using this product and getting a feel for it, I suggest highly to keep it out of high heat temperatures as it may melt.This product is great on it's own or even if you use it as a base for a powder blush because it will give your powder something to hold on to. Also, when this product is applied on the eyelids, use an eye primer
first, apply the product alone (or as a base for another color) and it gives a gorgeous sheen and shiny red/pink with gold undertone pop to your eyes.
So happy I have a chance to review this item, I have yet to see something similar to this in another brand!
