Do you want certified organic makeup that “takes green cosmetics to the next level of perfection”? Look no further than nvey (pronounced en-vay) eco from Australia, whose CEO and Founder is Rohan Widdison.
Nvey eco is both European and US certified! This is a statement from Nvey Eco:
“All NVEY ECO Make-up is NATRUE and NSF Certified. Unlike mineral or uncertified products, at NVEY ECO, we have to meet NATRUE’s and NSF’s standards in all ingredients we use. This prohibits us from using many of the ingredients found in mineral or uncertified products many brands use. Further NVEY ECO maintains its own internal standards of sourcing raw materials to ensure safe, ethical and functional colour cosmetics.
The NATRUE and NSF audit NVEY ECO for compliance with their standards.
Certified Organic by the NATRUE, a leading European and Global certifying body that audits and certifies cosmetic products, NATRUE certification is an important global recognition for NVEY ECO, and reinforces this process our focus on safe, ethical and functional cosmetics for consumers.
NVEY ECO Cosmetics has also been certified to the NSF / ANSI 305 : 2009 NSF International Standard / American National Standard Personal Care Products, Containing Organic Ingredients.
While other standards are available, the NSF “contains organic ingredients” standard is the only American National Standard for personal care products that make organic ingredient claims. In order to become certified to this standard, products must undergo a thorough review by an independent organic certification organization to verify that a manufacturer’s product formulation contains at least 70 percent organic content by weight.”
Check out this impressive list for all of nvey eco products:

Here are the three products that I received to review: gloss, eyeshadow palette, and mascara:
The beautiful colors are from Palette #7 Back Rock Plum! Click on images to enlarge:
Nvey eco swatches:
I used all of the colors in the palette to create this look. I used an eye shadow primer (which you should most definitely use!), eyeliner, and the nvey eco volumising (yes, correct spelling) mascara in Blue.
The nvey eco Volumizing Mascara in blue, is an amazing color. It is made with organic jojoba, beeswax, and carnauba wax. I agree it lived up to it’s promise to “build the lashes for a full, dramatic look while opening up the eyes.” I loved that it was fragrance-free, too!
Hydrating Lip Lustre in the color Amour Rose:
The gloss is a beautiful color. Here are some swatches:
I agree with nvey eco that “Green is Sexy.” The only downside of the products: you will need to order online.
