Zuzu Luxe Egyptian Gold Vegan Eyeshadow

Zuzu Luxe is a leaping bunny certified cruelty-free cosmetics brand, made with all natural ingredients and inspired by the European spa tradition. Zuzu Luxe is a line from the vegan makeup brand Gabriel Cosmetics. All of their makeup is vegan, however, they do have a series of makeup brushes made with cruelty-free animal hair as well. Zuzu Luxe cosmetics are also certified gluten-free.

I originally discovered Gabriel Cosmetics and Zuzu Luxe at our health food store, Down To Earth.  They were having a great sale, so I took the opportunity to try out a few Zuzu Luxe products. I purchased three beautiful eyeshadows: Egyptian Gold, Chameleon and Sahara.

Overall, I'm loving everything I've purchased from both their Gabriel Color and Zuzu Luxe lines, especially these eyeshadows.

Egyptian Gold was the first one that caught my eye, it's a buttery smooth, shimmering neutral gold eyeshadow.

Egyptian Gold has a soft golden shimmer, not frosty or glittery at all. Photographing in pure sunlight tends to bring out the sparkle, so I also included a shade photo below.

Egyptian Gold is a beautiful eyeshadow to wear as an all-over eye look, or in combination with bronze for added dimension.

Overall, Zuzu Luxe Egyptian Gold has that beachy golden goddess look that I love, cruelty-free, vegan and all natural! Exactly the kind of makeup brand I can feel good about supporting and wearing. Egyptian Gold has quickly become one of my favorite eyeshadows, along with Chameleon and Sahara.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I would love to hear if you own any Zuzu Luxe makeup, and if so, do you have any favorite products from them?

  1. Nice post Christine! The only Zuzu luxe makeup I've tried is their liquid concealer. I purchased mine at Whole Foods. Unfortunately, I picked a shade that was a bit too dark (it was hard to see what it would look like!) so I didn't get as much use of it and it seemed like there wasn't much product. It did have a nice consistency though. Can't wait to see what other finds you're gonna share :)
