You might notice that a lot of our beauty posts highlight the fact that the product is eco-conscious and doesn’t contain yucky, icky, no-good chemicals. But this pick is triply good: good for the environment, good for your skin, and makes you feel totally awesome.
Seriously, if you haven’t tried mineral eyeshadow, you simply must.
I recently ordered from Concrete Minerals
on Etsy and am loving the new looks I’m achieving. I’ve avoided talc
for a long time, but did you know that most store brand labels also
include parabens and other ingredients possibly linked to cancer? Let’s just say since I end up poking myself in the eye at least once a day, I want to
make sure that my makeup is as healthy as possible.
oodles of mineral eyeshadow sellers on Etsy, and shopping for new shades
is even more fun than picking paint swatches–plus, they often cost
less than even the drugstore brands.
At Concrete Minerals, you can buy eyeshadow samples, whole color collections,
or individual colors to highlight your eyes to their best advantage. I
love Harlequin and Blitzkreig for my hazel eyes, and Sojourner, a sparkly midnight blue, makes a
great liner when you apply it with a wet brush.
I’m finding that the shades last and blend well, although if
you have dry skin, you’ll want to check out a primer to keep the powder
in place. Then all you need to remove the mineral eyeshadow is a cotton ball
with a few drops of oil, like jojoba or sweet almond. If you don’t like your purchase, just send it back for an exchange or refund.
