This is a great surprise, as I honestly wasn’t expecting Neal’s Yard Remedies (NYR) to do this!

NYR Colour has established a UK first; it is the only cosmetics range with an eye colour collection to be certified organic by the internationally recognised Soil Association. The new capsule collection features sheer and nourishing lip glosses, mineral powder shadows and smooth-glide eye liners.
NYR Colour products have marketed their cosmetics range as ‘colour with care’ as they are formulated with antioxidant White Tea and Vitamin E, combined with nourishing oils and waxes to give added moisture, protection and nourishment to the skin.

This is what the collection contains:
MINERAL EYE SHADOW £10.25, 1g pot
11% organic, 88% natural minerals
– Soil Association certified
Available in Sage, Barley, Camelia and Truffle
A UK first, the four stand-out shades of mineral eye shadow also come with soothing properties.

– Organic Turmeric Powder and Milk Thistle Powder add antioxidant properties to protect against free radicals, whilst leaving the skin soft and supple
– Organic Sweet Almond oil and Organic Shea Butter condition the skin and protect from environmental damage
NYR COLOUR LIP GLOSS £9, 25ml tube
Minimum 87% organic
Available in English Rose, Bayberry, Rosehip, Nude, Natural and Mulberry.
The six natural shades, enriched with organic oil have been formulated with an organic base, rich in essential fatty acids to intensely moisturise lips and provide a long-lasting gloss
– Organic Beauty oil (containing omega 3, 6 and 9 and fatty acids) helps to nourish the skin and boost radiance
– Organic Castor Seed oil is protective and water resistant which provides a long lasting look with a subtle shine
– Organic Beeswax is incredibly moisturising and excellent for soothing and protecting areas of exposed skin such as lips
– Sweet Orange Peel oil gives a sweet and refreshing flavour and fragrance
EYE LINERS £9.00 (1.25g pencil)
37% Organic – Soil Association certified
Available in Midnight, Oak and Slate shades
Staying true to the Neal’s Yard Remedies philosophy, all three Eye Liners in the range are made with FSC certified wood and contain natural ingredients to give a smooth, soothing effect whilst creating dramatic looks:
– Organic Caster Seed oil is long-lasting. It’s properties soften the skin and ease application
– Organic Beeswax and Organic Sunflower Seed oil nourish, moisturise and protect skin against environmental effects, helping the liner glide easily for quick application.
NYR Organic Colour is available from September 2010 at Neal’s Yard Remedies stores and online at

    OMG I didn’t know this, although not EVERYTHING from Neal’s Yard is the best, it’s interesting that they are bringing out a makeup range since they already stock skin stuff.
