Make up your face with purpose!
Today I am sharing photos of the newest charity bundle, the Perfect Neutrals Collection, from one of my favorite brands, Clionadh Cosmetics. One unfamiliar with the indie world might expect a collection of “perfect neutrals” to be filled with browns, beiges, champagnes, and ivories, but one would be surely surprised upon seeing Clionadh’s interpretation of the phrase. Purples?! Neutrals?! All things are possible when it comes to indies.
Sure, there are some of the typical “neutral” shades here, too. But we have to acknowledge that Clionadh shook it up a bit with some of the gorgeous tones you’ll see below.
Also see below for more information regarding the inspiration for this collection and its charitable purpose.
The Perfect Neutrals Collection is a set of 7 eyeshadows inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and the unrelenting search for the perfect “neutral” shadows. There is one shadow in the bundle that is a “perfect neutral” for each member of the Clionadh Cosmetics team.
The collection includes 3 shimmers, 3 metallics, and 1 satin. The shadows are available in a bundle and individually.
100% of the profits from the sale of these shadows will be split between and donated to True North Aid, an organization which serves and supports indigenous communities in northern Canada, and the Black Queer Youth Collective, which supports Black LGBTQIA+ youth in Toronto, Ontario.
In true Clionadh fashion, these shadows did not disappoint. It should surprise absolutely no one that the purples, Chelle, BrittBritt, and Nic No. 1, are some of my favorites in this bundle. And I am totally with Clionadh on this one — purple (or any color for that matter) can absolutely be a neutral. These shadows are a more subdued than your typical colorful (read: non-brown) shadows, making them a great way to sneak some color into those otherwise “boring but beautiful” neutral eye looks we all (okay, maybe not all) know and love.
Overall, I think this collection is cute and surprisingly fun for a neutrals bundle. And the charitable donations to organizations benefitting Black and LGBQTIA+ people is the cherry on top!
