The 7-piece makeup collection contains a variety of products for the eyes, cheeks and lips, including Lipstick, Lip Gloss, Lip & Cheek Tint, Blush, Eyeshadow, Eye Crayon and Creaseless Cream Shadow. All products are made with natural ingredients including jojoba oil and Shea butter, along with vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 to fight against free radicals. They are also free of parabens, phthalates, silicones and petroleum byproducts and are cruelty-free.

The first thing that caught my eye was the white with floral print packaging. It is one of the prettiest I have ever seen, especially for a drugstore brand. There is also a nice, wearable range of colors that are suitable for different skin tones. The lip and cheek products come in mostly peaches, corals, pinks and reds while the eye products cover a wider range of colors like silver, gold, purple, teal, blue, pink and green.

The Lip Gloss is handsdown my favorite product from the line. It applies smoothly and has a creamy texture that feels moisturizing and non-tacky, just like MAC Cremesheen Glass. Pigmentation is also excellent and the color shows up exactly like what you see in the tube.

The Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow has a slightly drier texture and goes on semi-sheer, giving a buildable wash of color. While I like the softer effect it gives, it does have a tendency to crease and fade after a few hours.

The same goes for the Eye Crayon. It goes on sheer just like the cream shadow and does fade a bit. But I do the fact that it glides on so easily without tugging the skin.

Finally, the Blush is a gorgeous powder with very fine shimmer. It goes on really silky with great pigmentation and the best part? The color stays on all day.

Overall, I think Sula Beauty is a great line with wearable colors and I highly recommend their Lip Gloss and Blush. Oh and did I mention, everything only costs $8 a pop?

  1. Thanks for this review! My skin is so sensitive, I think I will give their products a try! Wouldn’t mind starting with a free lipgloss! ^-^

    • It’s not – as long as you apply with a light hand. It shows up a beautiful raspberry color on my NC30 skin.

  2. love your review, and would love to get the First Kiss Lipgloss, but i’m a sucker for lipgloss ;)
    illyjunus(@)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for the giveaway

  3. WOW! Thanks for the giveaway!
    I have tried their paint and peel nail polishes before and I’m not too fond of it. I haven’t tried Sula cosmetics before so I am looking forward to it.

  4. Hi, I just tried some of their lip tint and lipstick and I like them too. Please enter me for the give away.

  5. Thanks for the review! I saw these at Ulta yesterday, but I was waiting for a review before trying them. I can’t wait til I can get out there again to try them out!

  6. I recently purchased the lipstick and blush from this line. I was wondering about the cream shadows…do they crease even with a primer? If I don’t win this, will def check out the lipgloss.

    • Unfortunately yes but the colors are sheer so even if they do crease a little, it doesn’t get too messy. How did you like the lipstick? I was kind of tempted to get some too but figured I had WAY too many from MAC.

  7. Oh! I would love to win one of those! Thanks so much for the review! I love them all and you always come with great stuff!

  8. is the eye crayon supposed to twist up? I bought one earlier today and upon examination at home I have discovered I cannot make mine twist or do anything along those lines. so I don’t know how to make more eyeliner emerge.
