FTC Disclosure: These products were provided by a pr firm for review.

Over a year ago I posted a story called, Donate the products that make you look good, so you can feel good, which featured a list of organizations that accept beauty product donations. Among the list, I featured the Beauty Bus Foundation, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles that mobilizes volunteers to provide free beauty and grooming services to chronically and terminally ill patients and their caregivers.

This year, JAFRA USA, a skin care and makeup company dedicated to transforming people’s lives through beauty, is partnering with the Beauty Bus Foundation. From October 1 – December 31, 2012, for every High Pigment Eyeshadow and High Pigment Eyeshaow Offer sold, JAFRA will donate $1 to the organization. So far, the company has raised over $57,000 for the Beauty Bus Foundation, but their support doesn’t stop there. JAFAR is also providing their independent consultants as volunteers to help with in-home visits and pop-up salons; and, they have also donated generous amounts of JAFRA signature skin care, beauty and grooming products for the Bags of Beauty program.

I was given the opportunity to test out all four of the High Pigment Eye shadows:

Purple

Bronze

Blue


Transformer

I had to bang the container a few times on the counter to loosen up the product before using it. Then, I poured a small amount into the lid, and used an eye shadow brush to apply the pigments. I only used about one coat for each color, so be careful, a little bit goes a long way. Each color had a good amount of shimmer, which I loved, and it wasn’t overpowering. These eye shadows are great for a dramatic smokey evening eye, but when applied lightly, they can also be worn during the day to make your eyes pop.

The High Pigment Eyeshadows can be purchased online for $12.00, or by contacting your local JAFRA independent consultant. Not only will these rich pigments make you feel beautiful, but every time you bat your lids you can feel good knowing that your purchase helped someone else feel beautiful, too.
