Not all eye creams are created equal. 100% Pure have outdone themselves when it comes to this product. They have truly hit it out of the park with their Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream.
It is such a joy now that my skin care routine is all ironed out that I can start truly delving into the world of green makeup. I really do like playing and experimenting with makeup, but your skin is truly the canvas and so taking care of it and finding the right balance of skin care products is an absolute necessity for me before I can start thinking about makeup.
Lip products are one of those things that I have always liked, but I was hesistant to use them prior to going green because having the ingredients on my lips meant that I could ingest them and probably did. I had no idea how scary my products were until I started doing my research, but now that I know better I will never go back. I can deal with the lesser staying power because I know that they are safer. Considerably safer.
100% Pure is one of my favourite companies (have you noticed?) but I haven’t given their lip products much of a try so far. Up for review this time are the Lip Creme Stick in Perfect Naked Berry and their Lip Glaze in Velveteen. Continue reading 100% Pure Lip Creme Stick and Lip Glaze Review
Aside from Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer (review) I haven’t really branched out into liquid foundations since going green. I do like the Dream Tint, but it definitely does not offer full coverage, nor is it vegan. Naturally, I went looking to 100% Pure for makeup because so many of their products are vegan but they also use fruit and vegetable pigments rather than mineral based pigments to achieve the different shades. There is so much less chance of lead contamination with makeup pigmented this way, rather than mineral based pigmentation. Plus, it smells better!
As we are heading into the colder months, my skin craves moisture. The weirdest thing is that my eyelids have a tendency to develop eczema, which is not only itchy and painful but super inconvenient because I like to wear eye makeup! This creamstick works well in so many ways and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eye area one little bit!
Some of you may know this already, but my eyelids are extremely sensitive and mineral shadows alone can sometimes be very irritating and case a severe case of eczema in which I can not wear eye shadow for a week or two after the one glorious night. I combat this by using cream shadows as a base or balms as primers. 100% Pure’s Satin Cream Eye Shadow in Tahiti is a super pretty neutral base colour that is working well for me so far.
Now that I have tried cream blushes I rarely use the powdered form. My skin appreciates the extra hydration, and I find that they are just so much more natural looking when blended well. That being said, the Pot Rouge Blush from 100% Pure in Ballerina is far from a natural looking blush but not because of the pigment.
100% Pure is a green beauty company that is unique in that all of it’s products are tinted using vegetable and fruit pigments rather than minerals to allow for as pure a product without potential contaminants as possible. Of course the downside to this is that the products have a bit shorter of a shelf life than mineral products, but that is a small price to pay for a high performing “pure” product! I really like my other multistick, but I couldn’t resist trying the lip and cheek tint by 100% Pure.
