My review of the November 2014 Petit Vour subscription box (my 8th box).
Au Naturale – Creme Eye Shadow + Creme Concealer –full-sizes $24 + $20 – ★★★

Plant-based oils and waxes soothe skin upon application, keeping skin hydrated and color looking its utmost. Au Naturale Cosmetics are 100% natural, vegan, cruelty-free and made in the USA with organic ingredients.
Shimmering. Sparkling. Splendid. As Joey Graceffa would say. This cream eyeshadow is flawless and a more than worthy base. It’s gold-copper glow and makes my hazel eyes pop. I love our sample stick. Expect the real deal to come in a little pot. Available at Au Naturale Cosmetics.
