Organic makeup lovers, this one’s for you: I have a real treat for you today!

I’m talking about an Italian brand called puroBIO cosmetics, a range that features only organic-certified, vegan-approved makeup products that retail for very reasonable prices.

puroBIO Indissoluble Compact Powder in 01 (€9.99/$11.40)

puroBIO Indissoluble Compact Powder 01

If you only get one product from puroBIO, the Indissoluble Compact Powder should be it! Thanks to its extremely finely milled texture and non-powdery finish, it’s earned itself a spot in my everyday makeup bag.

puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 (€9.99/$11.40)

puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzer 01

Despite its name, the puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 is ideal to achieve a subtly contoured look, rather than a sunkissed one

Let me just start by saying that, in my opinion, the puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 is way too cool-toned to act as a bronzer. As a contour powder, it’s great, though! Finely milled and very easy to blend, it’s perfect for subtly enhancing the bone structure on fair to light skin tones. If you’re darker, shade 02 should do it for you.

puroBIO Eyeshadow Palette in 002 Fallen Tones (€12.99/$14.80)

puroBIO Eyeshadow Palette 002 Fallen Tones

I fell in love with this little puroBIO Eyeshadow Palette the moment I saw it. Ahhh, those jewel tones… Perfect for the fall, if you ask me! (Hello beauties from the southern hemisphere!) 😉

I think the plummy shade and the deep green go really well together, while the copper looks gorgeous on its own. The blue is pretty bright and vibrant, even on the lids – you know how some blue eyeshadows tend to look a little off once applied? Well, not this one!

All of the four shadows in the quad are extremely pigmented and easy to blend, but they don’t excel in the longevity department, so if I know I’m going to have a 16-hour day I’ll probably reach for something else.

puroBIO Smoothing Mattifying Primer for Oily Skin (€14.49/$16.53)

puroBIO Smoothing Mattifying Primer for Oily Skin

The puroBIO Smoothing Mattifying Primer does exactly what it says on the tin! I apply it on my forehead and sides of the nose before foundation, and it takes away any excess shine while minimizing the look of my pores. Definitely a good affordable, organic priming option for anyone with combination to oily skin.

puroBIO cosmetics Organic Italian Makeup Swatches

Swatches of all the products mentioned. L-R: puroBio Indissoluble Compact Powder in 01, puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzing Powder in 01, puroBIO Eyeshadow Palette in 002 Fallen Tones, and puroBIO Smoothing Mattifying Primer for Oily Skin

You can find puroBIO cosmetics in most bioprofumerie in Italy or on Ecco Verde, which is an Austrian e-store that ships to more than 90 countries worldwide.

    I really like the shadows, it’s hard to find good quality that cheaply and they look like MAC quality or better! Have you tried them with a primer? I find NARS makes everything last better.

    Great eye look, inventive yet still everyday wearable! I think this is one of my favorite looks you’ve done. The lip color is more subtle than your usual but still makes a statement and blends nicely with the overall look.
