Let me just say that it's been a battle to come to this point. Yes, this is a makeup post. But finding a brand that is doing it without all the harsh chemicals AND still giving you the results has been hard to come by. Don't let my sister know, but I kinda let her be the genie pig when I got her a few things for Christmas from 100% Pure. She ended up loving the stuff, so I got a few things for myself. And you know what? I.GET.IT.
When you start learning about the stuff that goes into makeup and making the green switch, you learn that fragrance is big sign it's not natural. That means finding a lot of products that are natural BUT smell well let's just say like the earth. It's not always pretty. So one of the best things about 100% Pure is they've magically found ways to make all their makeup smell good without any added artificial fragrance. You guys I almost want to eat it-that's how good!
Maracuja Oil Mascara in Black Tea $25
Don't ask me why I smelled this, but I did. Anyway, it does smell good. But besides that, I love that it actually gets the black color from black tea. Maracuja oil comes from passion fruit, which is full of fatty acids and is good hydration. I'm thinking this is why it smells good. It gives your lashes a dark coating and adds some volume. I wasn't sure how it would hold all day, but no issue there.
Now this stuff is life. It's basically an espresso shot for your eyes. And yes you will want to eat it. It actually smells like something you'd find in a bakery. A little goes a long way, but you can say goodbye to puff under eyes.
Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Lipstick in Calendula $29
One of the big things I've been trying so hard to replace is lipsticks and lip balms. The thing that I find with natural lip colors are them being either too sheer or don't feel quite right on. That's not the case here. They go on smoothly and have all the pigment I'm hoping for in a lipstick. The Calendula shade is a very pretty coral nude. I'm thinking about picking up this brownish nude.
Have you ever tried anything from 100% Pure? They have stores, too. I've been to my local one a few times and it's helpful to swatch things.
