Ro Vie Cosmetics Eyeshadow: Loveheart – Review and Swatch

I won this eyeshadow as part of Ro Vie’s facebook page promotion – they run a Fan Of The Week where they pick a name at random, and you get an eyeshadow of your choice. Oh, yes, please! Yay! This one I won back in January, when they were still Ethique, but in the process of rebranding to Ro Vie and focusing on the mineral makeup line.

And here it is!

Their website describes it as “Pale berry fruit coloured shadow perfect for warming any look. Very feminine pink- totally romantic.”. And that’s pretty accurate, although I found it an almost coral based deep pink with tan tones, which sounds like it should be startlingly wrong but is just so right.

on bare skin - no primer 🙂

You can use it as a sheer wash of colour, and just head on out the door, or you can intensify it with water or repeated application to a gorgeous not-at-all neutral shade. It really beautifully sets off other colours, too – I’ll post a photo of that later if I get brave enough!

It lasts a long time, doesn’t crease, and would work with just about any skin tone and eye colour. You can see it on their website ( or check them out on Facebook. $18 per eyeshadow, a 5 gm loose pottle. Heaps, in other words! And as always, Ro Vie do not test on animals, use natural and neutral + safe products, and are based in Christchurch, NZ.
