Good morning babes! And happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend, and I want to talk about a few green beauty products that I am loving for those times I want to wear makeup, but don’t want to spend more than 5 minutes doing it (hey, mama’s!). I know I am not the only one!!
I rarely, r a r e l y, wear any makeup, but there are times I want to! I love makeup but have been working the last few months on being confident without it and not feeling like I “need” it. After several months without makeup, I can’t remember the last time I felt like I had to have makeup on.
Which is so incredible, but it’s also okay that sometimes it’s fun and I want to put it on! I’ve been playing around with 100% Pure fruit pigmented makeup, and I have been really impressed. I have been trying their Healthy Skin Foundation. First of all, the color matches my skin tone better than anything I have ever tried (thus far). I was immediately impressed by that.
I also really love the consistency of the liquid. It’s really creamy and dense and I feel like a little goes a long way! It’s such a smooth foundation of really high quality. Something you can tell the moment it touches your skin.
It lasts ALL. DAY. seriously. It really does! I used this brush to blend the foundation in and topped it off with some organic dry shampoo as a finish. It lasted all day without a smudge anywhere. I wore this while playing outside with my kids all day and they were getting in a small pool/playing in water. My face was splashed several times but the makeup held up like it was nothing. This was definitely unexpected and pretty amazing. (side note: this stiff already has spf 20 which was a huge bonus!)
The coverage is really superb. I have some healing scars on my jaw and they were covered completely with only a small amount of the foundation. It didn’t look (I don’t think so but tell me if I am wrong!) or feel thick or packed on. I actually think that it looked very natural, even with all of the coverage.
I also have been loving their Mermaid palette. The colors are really flattering and look very natural, something I always look for in bronzers, blushes, and shadows. The powders are super blend-able. I love the eye shadow colors! They’re personally my favorite for my green eyes. They definitely make them pop without having a ton of makeup on my lids.
Overall 100% Pure has it down! Amazing products that deliver. I’ve been so impressed by the quality of this makeup, especially considering the clean ingredients. I have rather sensitive skin, and this stuff didn’t break me out, or irritate my skin either. You can buy these directly from the brand’s website, but I recommend buying through The Choosy Chick. The foundation is cheaper from here, and you can find a ton of great organic products you might need as well.
I did also want to mention real quick about The Choosy Chick sale that is going from Friday at midnight until May 30th. Here are some things I want to highlight:
All orders of $20 or more will receive a 2 oz. jar of Splurge’s Lavender Mint Body Scrub (no code necessary!)
HollyBeth Organics just launched a new Blue Purifying Face Mask. The Choosy Chick will be taking pre-orders (in stock on June 5th!). They are one of the first to stock this as well! All pre-orders will get free shipping in the U.S. use code: HBMASK
The Orgaid Sheet Mask Save 15% with code: SAVE15
I would love to hear if you guys have tried out any of these products and what you think?
If you haven’t tried, then you need to! I think they are a really great switch if you are still using toxic makeup brands.
