Of course you've heard of Honest Beauty - because you've heard of Jessica Alba, aka the owner of the Honest Company, of which Honest Beauty is a part of. This company's skin and makeup lines are designed to "celebrate diverse beauty" and bring out the best in each person that wears it. This is my first time trying out products from this line so I'm excited to share a few pieces with you. Maybe we can fall in love together ;)

Eyeshadow Trio($25.00 // ULTA Beauty). There are six Eyeshadow Trios available and I have two below in Truly Intriguing Forest Green and Truly Magnetic Heather Mauve. In addition to the eyeshadow shades the trios each host a medium sized mirror as well as a small card with a little tutorial on how to wear the shades together.

Truly Intriguing Forest Green includes three shades from the green family - a shimmering emerald green, deep blue/teal green and a khaki tinged greige. The greige is a really unique color that I don't own anywhere else in my collection and I can't think of anywhere I've even seen it before. Every single one of these shades performed beautifully - blending very well and lasting all day long over a primer.

Truly Magnetic Heather Mauve includes three shades from the plum family - a matte smoky mauve, a deep plum and an icy peach toned pink. The pigment and formula were even better with this trio than the Forest Green, and after the Forest Green I wouldn't have thought that was possible. Super easy to apply and blend, also lasting all day over a primer.

Truly Kissable Lip Crayon($18.00 // ULTA Beauty). There are two formulas of the Truly Kissable Lip Crayon - Sheer and Demi-Matte. Both of the shades shown below, Marsala Kiss and Mulberry Kiss are the Demi-Matte formula.

Demi-Matte is a fully pigmented formula that contains antioxidant-rich jojoba seed oil, murumuru butter and shea butter to keep your lips moisturized. One swipe gives you all the coverage you need. The end result is more of a glossy, satin finish that lasts as long as a lipstick but leaves a slight tint behind. Applying these crayons was one of the easiest experiences I've ever had with a lip product because of how creamy the formula felt and how even the color was.

In the eye look below I used the Truly Intriguing Forest Green Eyeshadow Trio over the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Utterly Becoming (which was LE but you can use any beige colored matte primer and achieve the same look). The first shade is all over the lid and up through the crease, the second shade is at the outer V and the third shade is in the crease and blended upward. The eyeliner is MAC Black Walnut and the mascara is IT Cosmetics Superhero.

Based on the performance of these four products I'd love to check out more from Honest Beauty! On my wishlist is, of course, ALL of the other Eyeshadow Trio's and Truly Kissable Lip Crayons but also the Creme Blushes and Lip Gloss colors. What's on your list?
