100% Pure Natural Makeup

100% Pure Natural Makeup
Since I start my blog just a little over a year ago, I've had a lot of questions about makeup. To be honest, I haven't worn much since going hardcore hippy because it's usually full of crap-tastic ingredients. But then something awesome happened and I stumbled across a brand that blew my mind!

100% Pure (that's the name of the company!) Remember that name!!

It's pretty crazy because they use fruit pigments to create the colors in their make up. They promise that their products are 100% natural and 100% vegan so you never have to worry about animal cruelty or weird chemicals. Everything is plant based (a lot of it's organic) or they use natural oils or moisturizers (like shea butter and grape seed oil). 

They have a full line of beauty products like foundation, mascara, eye shadow, lip gloss, lip stick, eyeliners, and a lot more. 

Since they are all natural they don't have a lot of exciting color palates to choose from like neon green or teal. They stick mostly to the pinks, reds, browns, purples and tans-- colors that you would find in nature. But that's fine with me-- I may have been born in the 80's, but that big blue eye shadow trend-- well, that was all my sister! I've always leaned more towards classic looks.

Most days I still go without make-up, but I wanted to share with you my basic "must have" list for a nice natural look. If you guys like this post, I can make another with a fancier date night color scheme. Woohoo!
  • Tinted Moisturizer: a sheer to medium foundation in White Peach
    • It definitely provided a nice light coverage and I love that it has moisturizer and SPF included.
    • It does help to even out your skin if you have mild blemished or little imperfections. They have heavier makeup if you want better coverage, but I've never tried it
  • Lip Glaze (lipstick): Sultry
    • This is GORGEOUS. It's very natural, but sexy at the same time. It's rich, creamy and it's wonderful under the Pink Caramel lip gloss.
  • Lip Gloss: Pink Caramel
      • It's a really pretty color-- a soft pink with a bit of brown.
      • My problem is not the product, but the applicator. It's difficult to get the product out of the pump jar onto the wand, but when you finally get it out-- it's perfect
  • Creamstick Eye Pencil: Black Pearl
    • This is a thick pencil and is better applied with an applicator, but it goes on really smooth and stays put.
    • The black looks more silver on the pencil and goes on gray. It's also sparkly.
      Natural makeup
  • Eye Shadow: Sateen
    • The eye shadow was a bit more purple than I imagined, but it's a beautiful dark color. Surprisingly, it doesn't go on dark, but provides a nice subtle color.
  • Mascara: Black
    • It's mascara. Not rocket science.
    • It doesn't clump, but nature's not water proof. 
Worth Mentioning:
  • Lip and Cheek Tint: Pinkest Pink (my newest FREE sample)
    • This was one of my free gifts and I'm not crazy about the color. It's true to it's name: very pink, but it's smooth and creamy.
    • You can use this product on your lips or your cheeks! I really like the idea and the product just not the color.
    • Pssssst…. I'm not wearing this one in the pictures

Okay, I admit that I don't look drastically different, but I'm not big on dramatic make up. Personally, I like to look like I'm not wearing any and 100% pure product line does a great job at making you look like a natural beauty.

I notice the biggest difference in the diminished appearance of the dark circles under my eyes, my eyelashes look longer and fuller and the color of the eye shadow makes my eyes pop. I also really, really, really like that their lip products have a built in moisturizer because I've got chapped lips.

If you guys like this and want to see my fancy evening make up routine, let me know. ;)

You can also buy a lot of these products from Amazon, but I recommend buying direction from 100% Pure because they give you FREE STUFF!

if you're going to spend $50 or more you get free shipping (anytime) and you ALWAYS get free samples. For instance, on my last order I received an extra eye liner, the cheek and lip tint, and 3 sample tubes of different skin care products. Yay! And they often have free gifts if you spend over a certain amount of money which is awesome. I love free stuff!!

If you end up trying out their products, I hope you tell me what you got and how you like it!
