The Chequered Lily Apothecary Review

I Bought ThisAffiliate Links The Chequered Lily Apothecary Review

Several months ago I ordered eyeshadows from the Chequered Lily Apothecary on Etsy. I’m just now getting around to sharing this review. The Chequered Lily Apothecary is a cruelty free indie company, and many of the shades are vegan. The shop just recently came back from hiatus so I thought now would be a good time to share this review.

Price
$6.50 for full size
$5.50 for 10 samples

All colors swatched on Gosh primer.

the Chequered Lily Apothecary Tutorial

I did a tutorial with the shades. See it here.

I think the colors are lovely and they’re reasonably priced. I appreciate that many of the shades are vegan. I also like that in each individual eyeshadow listing the owner notes if items are paraben free, lip safe, etc.

Overall, if you’re looking for a new indie to order from, I think the Chequered Lily Apothecary is a nice indie to check out.
