Feel as though the new you may be lacking that little bit of something? Well don’t worry, as it’s completely natural to feel quite daunting at the beginning of the year, however, there are fantastic ways to grab fresh hold and get that good feeling back by injecting some colour into your cosmetic wardrobe, as lets face it, what feels better for the new year than a brand new look tailored by you.
So I was so pleased to discover that my latest package was made up of 100% natural ingredients and fresh organic extracts.
Now I’m not sure about you, but I just find that when something has a certain element of goodness about it then suddenly everything looks, tastes and just overall feels so much better. It’s kind of like doing your “bit” for today’s earth. You know the little things in life which can make a big difference, such as – daily recycling, helping the local community by donating and maybe the overall refusal to buy plastic bags that aren’t biodegradable or re-usable.
But that’s just me. However, with that being said there is always room for improvement.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that doing good “stuff” in turn makes you feel, well good.
What are Kajals?
“Soultree Ayurvedic Kajals are handmade according to an Ayurvedic recipe using purely natural and organic ingredients. The black carbon is collected from vegetable oil lamps and then mixed with organic ghee, organic almond oil and natural colour pigments to create gorgeous vibrant colours to decorate your eyes in traditional Asian Style.”
I also find it interesting to learn about a product’s past and it’s history – Like how it came to be.
This one, in particular, is a result of a journey that started back in 2002 in the Himalayas, and though the people there didn’t have much, communities still appreciated nature for it’s goodness, and as well as cultivating and collecting those benefits, they always made sure to give back to the community in however much they took.
So I was so happy to be asked to be a part of SoulTree’s campaign and have the opportunity to test out some of their Kajals, which as you can see was only founded on the best ingredients and only formulated with good intentions.

So I received a generous selection from their Kajal range and was so excited to try them out as I read only great things about this product (more specifically the colour pay-off these have!) and if you follow me on my social media then you will know that I’m a bold, the brighter-the-better-kinda girl, so today was no exception – I was going to smush as many on my eyes as possible!
(Packaging and product examples)
Firstly, I used Purple Haze all over the lid as a base colour which is completely natural and flattering on the eyes.
Then as I wanted this look to be as colourful as possible I used Mood Indigo to draw as eyeliner on the lids and flicked this out.
Finally, I finished this look off with Fern Green for the lower lash line with a hint of Carat towards the center just to make this colourful look pop!
As far as product content goes, not only do you get a decent amount for your money but these Kajals are also incredibly pigmented (As you can see from the swatches it took just one swipe to get some colour!) they were also very easy to work with as the texture and consistency is extremely smooth and buttery which meant that blending these colours was a dream, and left no harsh lines.
I am really excited with how the overall look turned out. I highly recommend them as these are wearable for any occasion and depending on whether you’re the natural or the eccentric type, there’s a colour for everyone’s spectrum.
You won’t be disappointed
