Neal's Yard Oat and Wild Plum Eye Shadows - Review and swatches

I bought two organic eye shadows from the Neal's Yard to try out in the beginning of February. Both are beautiful shades for the daily make-up. 

Neal's Yard Oat Eyeshadow is a soft and light, close to the beige shade with a satin finish. During the day shade changes to a more pink hue, but still looks lovely and natural on my eye lids. 

Neal's Yard Oat Eyeshadow
I love to apply it on my eyelids and top it up with my grey eyeliner for a simple day look.

Here is the ingredient list:

Mica, Zea mays (corn) starch*, Ethylhexyl stearate, Zinc stearate, Squalane, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Tapioca starch*, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil*, Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil*, Rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil*, Tocopherol, Camellia sinensis (white tea) leaf extract, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, CI 77891 (titanium dioxide), CI 77499 (iron oxides), CI 77491 (iron oxides), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide).

This eye shadow has good blending and lasting qualities. I am generally pleased with this shade and plan to buy it again in the future. If I would want to rate it from 1 to 5, I can easily give Neal's Yard Oat Eyeshadow 5 points. It is good quality, has friendly ingredient list and has an appealing packaging. 

Neal's Yard Wild Plum Eyeshadow is a beautiful purple/violet shade. Has the same soft consistency with satin finish.

Neal's Yard Wild Plum Eye Shadow
Wild Plum requires a bit more blending than the Oat shade, but this is expected from the deeper shade eye shadow. It is perfect for the crease or for a smoky eye look. I usually prefer more mauve shades, but this suits well with my grey eyes and skin tone.

Here is the ingredient list for you to have a look:

Mica, Zea mays (corn) starch*, Ethylhexyl stearate, Zinc stearate, Squalane, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Tapioca starch*, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil*, Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil*, Rosa canina (rosehip) fruit oil*, Tocopherol, Camellia sinensis (white tea) leaf extract, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, CI 77491 (iron oxides), CI 77891 (titanium dioxide), CI 77510 (ferric ammonium ferrocyanide), CI 77510 (ferric ferrocyanide).

Almost same as above, just the difference in CI's. There is slight con of Wild Plum eye shadow, it tend to dust from the eyelids and gets into your fine lines. I would give Neal's Yard Wild Plum Eye Shadow 4 points out of 5. It is a good quality natural eye shadow, but isn't perfect.

Both Neal's Yard eye shadows are a blend of natural minerals and light-reflecting mica in a base of super-fine organic corn starch. They are enriched with antioxidant white tea and wild rosehip oil, with organic skin-nourishing oils to nourish, nurture and protect the skin. Eye shadows are Talc, Parabens and silicones free. Neal's Yard cosmetics is certified by the Soil Association. 

You can find a lovely shades in the collection. Have you tried any from above? What is your review?
