For Black Friday weekend, Kristen Leigh Cosmetics launched her Mean Green collection…and you know this green-lover was instantly intrigued 😍 I picked up a few colors and while it took a long time to reach me…the owner was sweet enough to add the whole collection into my order PLUS a variety of her other products! Let’s take a look at it all together!

So to further explain, I purchased two shadows from the Mean Green collection (I was trying to not go overboard) on Black Friday weekend and didn’t hear anything for several weeks. Towards the end of December I finally reach out to the owner to check and she admitted to being swamped with holiday orders and still trying to get caught up. Since I was about to have my third child, I didn’t really mind — I wouldn’t be able to play too much right after his arrival. The middle of January I saw that she printed labels out and a few weeks later it finally shipped and arrive to me around the 8th of February.
So while I know that is a LONG time to receive an order, I wanted to make sure y’all know she’s a one-woman show with her business (as far as I know) and as an “I’m sorry for the delay” she was SO kinda to include the ENTIRE Mean Green Collection PLUS a lot of her other products.
I thought that was incredibly kind of her, as I didn’t ask or imply that she should include anything extra. So to help shine a light on this small indie brand I wanted to show you all the products she sent me. Keep in mind, the only thing I “bought” and paid for are two green single shadows.
Glimmer Gels Collection
Retail Price: $12.99-$16.99 each
I didn’t order any of these, but she sent me 6 of her newest Glimmer Gels and these look like SO much fun! They’re an iridescent topper-type product that is so multidimensional…it’s impossible to capture in a picture.
I opened “Exactly” right away because it looked to have a green shirt that I can NOT wait to try out in my inner corner. As you can see, it’s a jelly-type product that looks white…until you swatch it!
As I said, it’s hard to get the shifts this product has in a picture, but you can see how reflective it is when it catches the light. I can’t wait to try these out on my eyes!
Extreme Multichrome Flakes
Retail Price: $14.99 each
Multichrome Flakes intimidate me because it seems so messy and tricky to use…but I do want to give one a try! Kristen Leigh Cosmetics have 4 different colors, Ambiance, Delirium, Golden Hour, and Ecstasy.
I need to do some YouTube searching to find videos on how best to use these…but doesn’t that look SO pretty 😍 I can’t wait to see what it looks like on my eyes!
Mean Green Eyeshadow Collection
Retail Price: $6 each, or $52 for all 12
And now for the eyeshadows — which I only originally purchased 2 of, but the brand owner was kind enough to send me the whole collection. I was floored! 😍
As you can see, it’s a gorgeous array of shadows ranging from super metallic to softer shimmers. I cannot wait to try to create some looks with them — I created my own little green palette to use this month to create some looks with 🤗 The swatches are definitely VERY promising!
Retail Price: $6 each
Lastly, she included 4 different loose pigments in my order. I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to loose pigments, so I don’t plan to try these products out — I’ll save it as a gift or to include in a giveaway. But I did want to show you that she included them in my order. So sweet!
