Just have to plug the current giveaway. I have 3 prizes for a just because contest. Check it out here.
Earlier this month, I won a contest and, here is what I got...
Purely Pleasures. I got to pick out three mineral shadows of my choice. And the elf brushes and the Lip Lush were added bonuses.
Ingredients: (All organic)
Original & Peppermint: Soybean Oil, Sunflower Oil, Palm Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Vitamin E.
Peppermint Only: Pure Peppermint Extract
My 'Lip Lush' is right in front of me, in my desk drawer, I use it that much. It is very smooth, glides on and the peppermint is as minty as a York Peppermint Patty. (However, less fattening.)
And the shadows next...
This has never happened to be before: I swatched these three dry and then wet and there is hardly any difference. 'Closet Freak' and 'Gunmetal Gray' look the same. Even though they are matte, I figured foiling it would intensify the saturation. So, have a look for yourself...
Maybe that is part of its uniqueness. You don't have to foil them to get deep color. I am, with that, deeply pleased with the application. I like pigmented shadows and these were no exception. It doesn't take hardly any powder to get transference. On the downside, the jars have no sifters so there is spillage; a bit messy.
Click on over to Purely Pleasures Cosmetics website to see the rest of their products. The prices are very competitive. The 'Lip Lush' is $2. The shadows are $4 for 3 grams. There is a monthly color that is $3 for 3 grams. A set of 4, only $15. A set of 8, just $28. The website also shows these different sets with recommended color combinations. Really helpful if someone isn't confident on picking their own combinations.
Purely Pleasures has a gamut of products that are all natural (no chemicals from a lab), not tested on animals and, mostly vegan. If you are wanting to try out beauty products from an all natural indy company, I suggest you try Purely Pleasures Cosmetics.
