Local NC heroes and clean(er)/sustainable makeup creators Color The World are a smaller business. They handpour their lipsticks, provide paper and cardboard packaging which is easily compostable and make donations for almost every product that they sell.
I am a little late to their party, but better late than never and I got a few things based on, not only color, but which charity most sweetly pulled on my heartstrings. The "no brainer" for me was 'Spicy Habenero' lipstick, benefitting local charity CASA that helps fight homelessness in our area. The lipsticks are very creamy and have good staying power for a traditional lipstick. I do see a problem toting them about in a purse on a hot NC day as they are very soft. Upon receiving my order, the lipsticks were intact but sweating and moved in their bullet when applied (and it was only 75 degrees outside). Into the freezer they went! Even after some time cooling off, the color 'Warrior' (a warm beige-nude & supporting veterans) was still moving and probably is broken at the stem.
The other stranger item is the cream stick blush called 'Bashful Blush' that is so pale I might call it a highlighter. I am still playing with it to try to figure out how to work with it.
The eyeshadow palette in 'Determination' is darker than I expected, but beautiful and soft with good color payoff.
Prices are excellent, packaging is super cute and shipping is quick. Overall, I would recommend this company's products to anyone who might ask. They are doing so many things right!

"Amy did the makeup for my wedding and it was gorgeous! Totally my style but more so, made me feel beautiful. It was perfect for such a special day."

"Amy was a key component in the success of our quaint April wedding. We were very pleased with her abilities, as she served not only as the officiant, but also as my personal makeup artist...Amy is patient, kind, accommodating, and is very artistically talented. As our officiant, she assisted us in making the service personalized, as well as intimate and full of love. She encouraged us to write our own vows, which I believed enhanced the ceremony.
As a makeup artist, she has a keen sense for color. I loved her products and hope to continue to use some of them in the future. I could hardly feel the makeup that she used, and was very surprised at how natural I looked. Above all, she did an excellent job making me not only look pretty, but feel pretty.
We were so fortunate and happy to have found her; she is truly a hidden gem. We could not have done it without her!!
Thank you Amy for being there with us!"

"I was very impressed with Amy, her kindness and creative spirit, which made our wedding very magical. Being in the fashion and hair industry, I have sent many models down the runway, and I must say her artistry matches up with the best I have worked with. Amy as an officiant is above all. She is very passionate about your ceremony, taking time to understand one's needs, and one's commitment to express the joy of love."
