Silk Naturals Hawaii & Harry Potter Collections Review & Swatches!

Why do I love Silk Naturals? Read on and find out.

Reason #1: Super fast shipping! I placed an order for their new collections on Tuesday, and it was promptly shipped on Wednesday. Two days later, it’s in my mailbox. And Reason #2: Their shipping rates are very reasonable, and I appreciate that. (I’m a little turned off by companies that charge way too much for shipping.)

I ordered some Harry Potter-inspired eyeshadows… Dark Arts, Envoy, Hero, and Teacher’s Pet.

I also got their new Hawaii-inspired eyeshadows (Aloha and Pacific). I requested Mahalo as my free eye shadow, and the free gift with purchase was Cleo. Reason #3: I love that Karen offers free gifts with purchase. It shows how much she appreciates her customers.

Here are some swatches. Reason #4: AH-MA-ZING quality eye shadows! Click the image to enlarge it. 🙂

Dark Arts is a color inspired by Professor Severus Snape (one of my favorite characters in the Harry Potter book series). It’s a dark golden brown with gold and green shimmer.

Envoy is a shimmery snow white with a pearly luster, as beautiful as Hedwig’s white feathers.

Hero is my favorite from this collection. It’s a pearlescent blue-green with a touch of golden shimmer. It is of course inspired by Harry Potter himself.

Teacher’s Pet, inspired by Hermione Granger, is a lustrous pearly taupe with flashes of gold.

Aloha is deep teal green with a pearly sheen finish.

Mahalo is a pale tint of golden pearl.

Pacific (my favorite from this particular collection) is a medium vibrant blue with gold sparkles.

And finally… Cleo, a gorgeous shimmery purple color. I’m in love with this one! Reason #5: In addition to being super nice, Karen is also very talented!

I didn’t actually order any of the new blushes because (1) I wasn’t sure if they would work for me, and (2) I was supposed to be on a “no buy”… so I was pleasantly surprised when I found some samples included in my order. Reason #6: The SN team is AWESOME!

And here are some swatches. These are all lightly pigmented. Reason #7: Their blushes are soft, silky, and absolutely gorgeous.

Ginger, inspired by Ron Weasley, is a delicate peach/coral tone with a dust of sheen.

Phoenix is a deep wine color with a fine hint of golden bronze sparkle.

Guava is a sweet and subtle cool mauve-pink blush with a slight shimmer.

Lychee is a lovely berry-pink blush with a slight shimmery finish.

My order wouldn’t be complete without some lippies! Reason #8: I’m addicted to their lippies! They have a nice texture, great selection of colors, moisturizing formulas, and a nice mild scent.

Here are some swatches for you! I was going to take some lip swatches too, but my battery died. I hope this helps anyway. Enjoy! 🙂

Reason #9: The products are all reasonably priced.

Reason #10: $1 of the purchase price of each new eye shadow and lip product will be donated to Women for Afghan Women. For more info, click here.

  1. Your swatch photos are awesome, and the colors are gorgeous! I LOVE Silk Naturals (HOW do they ship so fast??? Not a complaint, btw ; ). Might have to look into getting some of these … I love Dark Arts, Hero, Cleo, and Mahalo!

  2. @princessfats: Hero is a must-have IMHO. ^_^

    @LT: I LOVE Delacouer! It's my new favorite lip gloss. I wasn't expecting to like Mango, but I'm really glad they sent me a free one. I love it! I was afraid bright orange would look awful on me, but it actually looks nice.

    @Heather: Thank you so much! I would love to see you do a few EOTD using Silk Naturals. =D

    @Maggi: Thank you!

    @MartianDelights: I hope Karen releases Cleo later as a permanent eye shadow. It's too pretty to remain a limited edition.

  3. Thanks for the swatches. I ordered the HP shadows & lippies but only the Hibiscus lippie from Hawaii. I think I may need to add Aloha & Cleo to my collection plus a couple blushes!
