UPDATE: I RECENTLY LEARNED THAT 100%PURE HAS BEEN ALLOWING SOME HARMFUL CHEMICALS INTO THEIR PRODUCTS! I WAS GOING TO PULL THIS POST BUT THERE IS STILL SOME GOOD INFORMATION IN THIS POST SO I CHOSE TO KEEP IT UP AND ADD THIS UPDATE. I DO HOWEVER STILL LOVE RED APPLE LIPSTICK AND ALIMA PURE MAKEUP AND RECOMMEND THEM. YOU CAN CHECK OUT THAT POST HERE. I DID HOWEVER PULL THE VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE SO YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO WATCH THOSE.
Natural Make Up
Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs every little thing we put on it. Unfortunately, most commonly bought beauty products contain quite a lot of harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances and damaging toxins. SCARY!!! Once the skin absorbs these harsh chemicals it can be hard to get rid of them. These chemicals can then go on to cause clogged pores, skin irritations, premature aging and so much worse.
In the United States, we have not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938!!!!! Yes, you saw that right 1938!!! There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many have NO safety data on them. Out of the 10,000 chemicals found in personal care products, only about 10% have safety data on them. In my desire to remove chemicals from our home and bodies, I learned about this fact and was amazed that this was happening. I started looking at many natural beauty products and just like with essential oils, it it up to the companies to regulate themselves. So my search began trying to find a company that didn’t just put it on their product labels, but actually did it! Like how Young Living actually does it with their SEED to SEAL promise. A friend recommended Beauty Counter Make Up. I love what they are doing to not only get safe make up out to the consumer but to fight this battle in Washington DC. They lobby to get stricter and current regulations on personal care products. This isn’t just for make up. This goes across the board deodorants, lotions, shampoos, toothpastes… the list goes on and on. I have been blessed to be able to switch most of our person care products to Young Living since I trust them, however, they do not offer a make up line. At least not yet, maybe someday. As much as I love what Beauty Counter is doing to fight and change this,
I was having a hard time finding a rep and if I did it was not easy to get the help I needed. I struggled with the website and the choice of colors and had no luck contacting reps. I even considered becoming one just so I could help others that might be struggling with it too. But my time is limited and I am not ready for that added work. Maybe someday. The second thing I discovered was the price was a little steep . Now I’m sure just like with Young Living, quality cost more to make, so I would not rule it out for just that reason. However, I have never been a big makeup person so I think for me its a big step. I use my Young Living personal care products everyday but I don’t use make up everyday. So for now I will leave that make up line to my make up loving friends.
Anyways… on to what I did choose to buy.
100% Pure Make Up
100% Pure Make Up is a pure, organic and all natural line of cosmetics. They aim to give your skin its maximum benefits, without irritating any skin type. This one has felt wonderful on my skin. I tried a couple different mineral make ups, but they irritated and broke my skin out. 100% Pure make up is formulated with high performing antioxidants, naturally occurring vitamins and essential oils.( You know I like that!) Not only will 100% Pure give you a beautiful finish, but it will also improve the health of your skin in the long run. Now I do have to say this is not a heavy a makeup at all. If you are looking for a lot of coverage this probably is not the one for you. I personally like a real light feeling, natural look with my make up and this has been perfect.
What I Got
I ordered my makeup at the end of November with a Black Friday special so I got an amazing deal. I highly recommend sign up for their emails so you know when they have good sales and offers. I purchased the Pink Cheeks Strawberry gift set which is unfortunately not available at this time 😦 This set includes Chiffon Blush $35.00 Mauvely Lip Gloss $18.00 Fruit Pigmented Hazelnut Eye Shadow $18.00 Fruit Pigmented Flax , Fruit Pigmented Dual-Ended Creamstick Eyeliner Cotton/Silk $25, Friut Pigmented Black Tea Mascara $25, Cruelty Free Short Handle Blush Brush #12, Cruelty Free Short Handle Eye Shadow Brush #1 all for $85 with free shipping and returns guaranteed. I also ordered the Fruit Pigment Foundation Powder in White Peach and the Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer in Cocoa Glow. They were offering a 25% off deal and a list of free products for reaching a certain dollar amount. So I received a free Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss in Sheer Pomegrant Wine, a Contour Brush, a Base Brush, a Liner Brush, a Kabuki Brush, and a Make up Blender all for FREE!!! In total my order came to $113.25 for all of that. What a great deal right!!!
