Sula Beauty Makeup Range Review, Photos and Giveaway

July 7, 2011

Eco-friendly Canadian brand Sula Beauty has finally made its way to the US!

Sula Beauty Makeup Range

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?

To share my love for this brand, I am now giving away a Lip Gloss in Summer Fling (a coral with gold shimmer) and First Kiss (a medium pink) to two lucky readers. All you have to do is leave a comment with your name and e-mail by July 10th. The giveaway is open to everyone.

Update: The giveaway has ended and the winners are yuyu35 and Linda Nguyen.

Sula Beauty is now available at Ulta stores and ulta.com.

    But the blush…isn’t it a bit too pink? haha

    • Reply Phyllis July 8, 2011 at 8:38 am

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

    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.

    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.

    • Reply Phyllis July 9, 2011 at 10:33 pm

      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.

      • Reply Jody July 10, 2011 at 1:46 pm

        The lipstick is smooth and pigmented. There’s a slight scent. Like berry?

        • Reply Phyllis July 12, 2011 at 12:01 pm

          Oooooooh the lip gloss has a scent too and I LOVE it!

  • Reply Kaity August 15, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    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.

    • Reply Phyllis August 15, 2011 at 3:02 pm

      Hi Kaity,

      The eye crayon does not twist up. You just have to sharpen it.
