Searching for a plastic free eyeshadow palette but coming up empty?  Well, have I got a surprise for you today!  And it starts with just two words: Boho Green.

No matter how I have received a product, whether it has been purchased with my own money, gifted by a brand, been subsidized by a brand, won, gifted by friends/family, or purchased with a gift voucher, my approach is always the same -- honesty, integrity, and highlighting both the good and the bad.  You can find more information on Disclosures and Privacy here.


The Brand:

As soon as I discovered Boho Green I knew I had to order ASAP - this natural beauty brand has a wide range of minimal waste and plastic free makeup products, spanning eyeliner, lipstick, pressed powder, and more.  Committed to creating eco friendly products that suit all budgets, this French business has all the credentials to back up their claims.  From certification by Cosmebio to a host of philanthropic connections (such as involvement with 1% for the Planet, ESAT, FNH, The Greener Good, Slow Cosmetique, and more!), Boho Green is truly invested in the ethos they share with their customers.

"The brand was born from our inspiration for the bohemian and hippie culture of the 60s / 70s, years marked by a revolutionary state of mind and rich in creativity at all artistic levels. // We campaign against overwrapping by offering products without blisters or superfluous packaging . We optimize the eco-design of our packaging by using responsibly produced materials . For example, 100% of the wood we use to make the caps for our nail polishes, our eye shadow palettes and all of the merchandising comes from sustainably managed forests."

And if that's not enough, Boho Green offer a huge selection of highly pigmented products that are all packaged with the planet in mind...




The Product: Boho Gypsy Eye Palette in Earth (£34.99/8 x 1.8g)

As I had not come across many palettes that are truly plastic free, I had to scoop up one of their three refillable eight shadow collections first!  I picked out the Boho Gypsy Eye Palette in Earth which is a perfect palette for those who like neutral tones and a subtle everyday look.  The colour collection is a great mix of dark and light shades, and it has everything you need to create a complex blend of tones or a simple on the go aesthetic.  Plus, it is 99% natural, vegan, and sustainably made!

The product itself has two compartments that are held together by magnets, and the wood case is stunning to look at with a natural grain texture and appearance that is accentuated by a carving of the logo on the top.  This is so unique, and it feels really high quality - solid, but lightweight for easy transportation, and sturdy so it will last a long time.  This is the type of palette you want to refill time and again!

Boho Green has filled the "Earth" version full of complimentary colours, all of which capture the warming familiarity of the natural world.  There are a mix of matte and pearlescent formulas across the eight shades inside, and a pretty good variety of pigmented shadows: Seagrass, Cedar, Chiffon, Black Rose, Shadow, Copper, Wool, and Cashmere.  My one complaint is that none of these are labelled so I have no idea which is which, even after having looked online.  While this is not a make it or break it problem, I could see it being frustrating to makeup artists or those who like to share their specific looks with their friends or followers.

"Silky and velvety, our eyeshadows are easy to apply and offer a professional result (excellent pigmentation and long-lasting). Our matte eyeshadows bring depth and intensity to your look. Our pearl eyeshadows brighten your look thanks to special light- reflecting pigments."

While all shades are smooth and comfortable wearing, I am really drawn to the rich metallic tone of Copper as well as the dusky pigment of (what I assume is) Black Rose.  They are just such special colours and I really like playing with them when getting ready!  In terms of application, these shadows go on easily and don't have too much fallout though the matte shades do have a bit more, especially the lighter cream colour (Wool?).  I find they last a long time, and I love how they are able to be blended!  I am definitely a fan of this palette, and am so pleased I stumbled upon Boho Green.
