I recently purchased from Chinovi Cosmetics when they had their grand opening and was offering free shipping on orders. I purchased 7 samples on Friday, June 1st and recieved a shipping notification on June 5th and I had the package in my mailbox on Friday, June 8th. The whole order only took a week to process and ship, which I consider to be very good.
My order came in a regular bubble mailer and inside my samples were packaged in a larger plastic bag and then nesteled inside a yellow paper bag. With my order I also recieved some candy. 🙂 I thought the candy was a nice touch and who does not love candy? I also recieved a business card with a personalized ‘thank you’ and a coupon for a free full size with my next $20 order. Overall, customer service is amazing and the processing and shipping time is on point. A+!
Since I only ordered samples I can not comment on their packaging but the samples do have very cute labels and do state whether or not the shade is eye or lip safe. The sample bags are very standard and I have no complaints.
Now, onto the product: I must admit I know nothing of eyeshadow formulation but I do know if an eyeshadow applies poorly and let me tell you, these eyeshadows apply so beautifully and feel so smooth that I’m in love! The color selection is somewhat small at this point but for a new company, I can not fault them. Plus, the colors they have now are colors I’m always instantly drawn too and it took some willpower to not purchase them all. The colors blend nicely together and when over a base, they’re stunning. The only shade I had a bit of trouble with was Whisper, even over a sticky base it was a bit hard to blend out and was kind of patchy but I got the hang of it.
Basically, they’re amazing and I highly recommend Chinovi Cosmetics! When I get paid on Thursday I plan on purchasing some more samples. Yay for more!
The samples came in standard baggies but look how adorable the logo is!

Thanks for looking! 😀
