Lately it's been raining mineral makeup at my humble abode and personally I could not be happier since I've gotten addicted to them.I mean it's hard for me to imagine life without mineral makeup now.And the reason for that is three folds: it's gentle on your skin, applies better and has such amazing hues and shades that it's simply impossible to resist.So a Mineral Makeup package from Monavé Minerals was all I needed to go bonkers with joy!
Mineral Makeup by Monavé comes forth as a trustworthy brand because they are very forthright about the ingredients used in their products.The product line consists of organic botanical ingredients, completely gluten-free formulas that are 95% vegan, and all products are free of paraben preservatives, dyes, and bismuth oxychloride. Monavé does not engage in animal testing, and chooses the highest quality mineral makeup ingredients, not simply for the press, but for the health and performance of the products.Monavé has a wide array of shades for all complexions, lifestyles and ages.
The Monavé line of mineral cosmetics includes lip glosses, lipsticks, blush, eye liners, bronzers, mineral makeup foundation, as well as naturally formulated facial skin care and natural hair care products.
Monavé was also awarded first place in The Natural Solutions magazine 2009 Beauty with a Conscience awards!
And now onto the mineral love that was showered on me:
Monavé Loose Mineral Concealer-Foundation In Caroline and Claire
This mineral makeup foundation formula offers more coverage than traditional foundation formula and can easily double up as a concealer too.It's creamier with a matte finish and is ideal for acne and rosasea sufferers since it's high in zinc oxide, which is beneficial for inflamed and irritated skin.
In addition, Monavé loose mineral foundation has a high SPF factor and is nearly waterproof .Even though it is a powder foundation, it is not drying. It seals in moisture for those with dry skin yet doesn't clog pores for those with oily skin. It also won't "break up" in response to oil, but remains flawless throughout the day.The foundation comes in a bevy of colours to suit all skin tones and colours.
Monavé Illuminizer In Glisten
Face Illuminizers work as highlighters and come in three different shades to suit different skin tones.Glisten is a pale pink that imparts a faint rosy glow, subtle, with a delicate, smooth sheen.These can be brushed gently over foundation to achieve luminous skin or can be added on top of eye shadow to give it another dimension.This product is my favourite outta the lot because of the lovely iridescent quality to it.
Monavé Pearlescent Blush In Vintage Lace
I chose this shade simply because it had such a beautiful name.Vintage lace reeks of an old world charm much like the blush itself.It is a very unusual colour for a blush, pink with strong mauve undertones and a pearlescent finish and although I'm yet to try it on I'm sure I'll fall in love right away.Monave Pearlescent Blushes are made from pure mica.They are sheer, and natural looking, and have a soft sheen, perfect for casual and evening looks.These are pure pigment and can be used on the nails and lips as well.
Monavé Versatile Mineral Powders in Champagne, Copper and Vamp
Monave loose mineral powders are a blend of pure, oxidized mica, and are versatile and fun. The texture of the powders range from semi-matte (these impart a light sheen) to shimmer, to full sparkle. All of these beautiful loose powders can be used as eye shadow, eyeliner, blush, and nail polish. The red, pink, brown and beige tones can also be mixed into a clear gloss and applied to the lips.Makeup artists can blend their own shades together to create custom colours.
All in all my mouth is drooling with the prospect of trying these awesome goodies.And I don't know how I've resisted so far, these still have their safety stickers glued on.
So while I dig into these beauties you go and check out their wonderful range of all natural cosmetic and skincare range at http://www.monave.com/ and get yourself some mineral love too.
