This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Orglamix: Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend or support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

The first would be Cheri from Orglamix Cosmetics. Her products are nothing short of amazing. I've been ordering from her for nearly a year, and with each purchase she's always included an extra "freebie" color... Not to mention her packages arrive smelling absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! She scents fabric rose petals with a custom scent that she's been working on- and through the grapevine I've heard that petals will be offered for sale soon. If you're sensitive to perfume, you can always request that the petals not be placed in the envelope when sent- therefore avoiding a sneeze-fest when you excitedly open your package to get to your makeup!

There's an amazingly wide spectrum of colors available to purchase- and seasonally there are complementing colors which Cheri makes. Some are offered year-round, and others have been retired. If you can't decide what colors you want to purchase from her- you do have the option to buy her entire collection!! A great deal always sells, right? She's nailed marketing down by offering a COTW- Color of the Week which you can get for a steal! These run for the week at half the regular price. Cheri also posts contests, trivia, and fun blurbs on her Facebook Page available exclusively to fans!

If you're not sure what to buy at first- Cheri will help make recommendations to get you started! She's outstanding as far as customer service, quick to respond to inquiries, and shipping is super-quick with world-wide destinations. It's nice to pick up a little color on your brush- and have the vibrant color go a long way- and that's exactly what these shadows do. With a flawless finish regardless of whether it's eye shadow, foundation, or blush/bronzer- you'll be 100% satisfied  with her colors- or your money back guaranteed!
