Forever Pure Mineral Makeup Review -The Pitch List
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm careful of both what I put into my body and what I put on it. I know lots of "health conscious" people who put commercial products on their body that are FULL of chemicals and things that are horrible for you! Things that you would never consider eating. Why is that? Why do so many people want to put stuff on their body that they would never consider putting in them?
It's pretty simple. It's all for beauty. We are a very vane society and want to be beautiful. Unfortunatly, most people think that to be beautiful they have to use those name brand cosmetics and body washes etc that are so laden with chemicals. I'm here to say NOT TRUE! I have been chemical free in my makeup, deodorant, and everything else for a few years now.
What you say? How can you wear makeup that isn't full of chemicals? No, the answer isn't that I don't wear any but rather that I wear mineral makeup! In fact, I've just discovered a new brand of mineral makeup and facial care called Forever Pure, Beauty Inspired by Nature.
A bit about Forever Pure. They are a faith based company dedicated to helping women feel beautiful inside and out! Their products are 100% pure, all mineral, all natural, and gluten free while also being chemical, toxin, and paraben free. They offer a powder mineral foundation or a cream mineral foundation as well as several eye shadows, liners, primers, blushes, bronzers, and so much more. In additional to their makeup line they also have a skin care and anti aging line. I don't feel I need the anti-aging yet, but maybe I should start with it now. Nine kids have a way of making you age faster!
I received a super cute pocket mirror. Seriously, this is so adorable and I cannot express how much I adore it! Love the rose shape too. Now to the actual review items. I tried out two eye shadow colors(pewter and sea turtle), mineral powder foundation in neutral ivory, and oil control powder primer.
I love, love, loved the feel of this stuff on my face! I hate makeups that make you feel like you have a bunch of gunk on your face or seem to devour every piece of moisture off your face leaving you feeling dried out and looking weathery. I have semi oily skin. It's really only oily in spots so it is really hard for me to find a foundation that works with me and doesn't make me look oily or make my skin feel super dry at the end of the day. I was a bit hesitant to try the oil control primer powder, but knew that I would need some form of oil control as the powder foundation did not include any. My concern of course was that with the oil control powder I would get all dried out and without it I would look like someone had poured coconut oil over my head! Okay so maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I'm sure you giggled at that mental picture(I know I did).
I loved the effect of the oil control primer combined with the foundation. I first applied the oil control primer as you would a normal primer just lightly brushing over my face with a bit extra in my trouble spots. Next(with a different brush) I applied the foundation. After the foundation I used a neutral beige type eye shadow that I have on hand at all times as it's a favorite of mine and then applied whichever eye shadow I wanted to wear for the day. I am a lover of blues and greens and do not buy into the fact that people out of middle school should not wear the colors! If applied right they look gorgeous and bring out your eye colors. After my second eye shadow I would apply my pencil eye liner as I have never gotten the hang of using your eye shadow as a liner and my mascara. I've always been an eye type of girl so I use more time on them than I do my face!
