Zuii Organic Cosmetics - Fabulous stuff! - Just the first of my blogs on this wonderful stuff!

Lucky me, recently I was given the opportunity to review these fantastic cosmetics from the lovely people at Zuii . When they arrived in their bright yellow DHL packaging I was deliriously happy and yelling  random things like"woohoo my cosmetics from Australia are here!". My three year old nephew, his seven year old brother and their recently-turned six year old cousin were over and they were chorusing and harmonizing " Australia! Australiaaaaaaah".

I'm so in love with these products! All of them! I couldn't stop smelling them, they have the most intoxicating floral fragrance. The smell is not at all irritating, it's addictive and it doesn't linger about the whole day. I must say that the products have staying power. They are all easy to apply set to a smooth,natural and silky finish. I also used these products the day after I was dermarolled and had no adverse effects.

The next Zuii blog  I'm going to do a full Zuii look with the goodies I got :
  • Organic floral foundation in ALMOND
  • Organic floral Blush in GRAPEFRUIT
  • Organic liquid foundation in Natural Fair (a bit light but they have a good range of shades)
  • Organic Floral lipstick in Cashmere
  • Organic Floral Liptint in Maple
  • Organic Floral eyeshadow in Bronze
  • Oragnic Floral Mascara in Bronze

Oo-la-la . Foundation,powder,blush,eyeshadow, mascara
lipstick, lip gloss

Organic flora powder foundation provides a natural looking full cover without clogging pores, leaving your skin with a natural radiant finish. The Vitamin C properties of the organic rose petals reinforces your skin with a natural moisture barrier and acts to treat damaged skin and protect against premature ageing. This blended well with a soft ,natural finish. It also gave a me an amazing radiant look

Zuii Organics delivers simple and effective Talc Free colour tones reinforced with Organic Rose, Jasmin and Chamomile flowers to create any look you desire. I loved this colour, a bit like MAC's Peach Twist but it gave me this fantastic glow with a bit of pink. Wow,wow and wow. I love this blush!

Zuii’s unique Talc Free Organic Floral blend of rose, chamomile and jasmin powders enriched with natural vitamins and minerals delivers both a subtle and sophisticated colour palette to soothe and nourish your eyelids. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! The application was incredibly smooth and I adore the colour. It creates a great smokey-eye effect and can double up as a liner.

Create a rich and full lash look with a petro-chemical free formula to care for your eyes. The high definition and long lasting colour is reinforced with a unique blend of plant extracts to care for and nourish your lashes. Petro-chemical and silicone free, this was really nourishing for my lashes. The finish was natural and soft (not hard like so many other mascaras)- they still felt like lashes. This is now my daily mascara. It's not high drama but I like it ( and ofcourse that floral fragrance!). It's not water -proof and may smudge in very hot,humid climates.

While delivering a high shine finish, Zuii Lip Tint is more than colour with a unique blend of Organic Rose, Beeswax and Aloe Vera that moisturisies and nourishes dry or chapped lips. Highly nourishing, and long lasting. I like the rich, sexy,shimmery colour and the lipsatin/gloss look. Nothing like Revlon's horrible "Just Bitten" offering. The gloss is not gloopy and stays put. Great smell of course.

The creamy organic formula is soothing and nourishing, rich in colour and long lasting, reinforced with Jojoba, sunflower and aloe vera. This was ultra-moisturizing. so damn soft and it smelled divine.

Medium coverage moisture liquid foundation with a smooth silky finish containing Calendula, aloe vera plus vitamin E and C. A Moisturiser and foundation in one. Does not clog pores, soothing and suitable for sensitive skins. I absolutely loved this. It was so silky and light weight while offering great coverage. It seemed to melt onto the skin -excellent blending! The staying power was fantastic. I still looked great at the end of the day even after a crazy day with patients, none of it rubbed off on my surgical mask.

  1. Thanks for the review...I have used many of their products and I am truly impressed.Also there are many colors to choose from...the range of option and choice helps a lot of skin tones consider the products.

  2. Hi, thanks for this very informative review! I'm thinking of trying this line as I'm passionate about health and wellness, and love organic products, and because I would like something to 'amp up' my everyday look, and hopefully give my skin a more glowy, natural, healthy, even-toned look.

    I'm just wondering, in regards to the liquid foundation, what is it's staying power like? I'm actually an Aussie and at the moment it's the middle of Summer in Australia, I'm also about to go back to school, so was wondering how well it stays if you play sport(I will be playing sport twice a week and doing dance lessons twice a week at school). I've also got oily skin and want something that will not clog my pores but will cover my horrific blemishes: think blackheads, acne, red, uneven, blotchy, irritated skin tone. I'm also very pale, an added 'bonus'(which I don't mind, being tanned isn't everything to me) :P , with being a redhead(which I love!).

    So, taking into account that it's very hot here, I'll be doing physical exercise four times a week during school hours, and I have fairly(not extremely, it usually depends on the product I use to determine how oily my skin is)oily and fair skin, what tone would you recommend I use? + should I use the powder? Or do you think I will sweat too much and it will become streaky or fade in colour and I should not use it at all?

    Please leave me a response! I'd really like to know what I should do. :) :)

    Thanks again for this review! :)


Love to hear your thoughts!
