And the winner of the Pure Anada giveaway is Hit Pay Dirt who said...
I've been wanting to switch to a mineral foundation for awhile. I'd love to try out Anada!
Congrats and contact me ASAP at talk at ecochick dot ca!
A few weeks ago, I got a lovely package in the mail from Pure Anada Natural Mineral Cosmetics. Good cosmetics are the one thing that's hard to find in the eco-friendly world, so I eagerly accepted their offer to try out their samples. They talked a good game: Pure Anada Mineral Cosmetics, they say, is makeup in its most natural form. Made of simple, natural ingredients, Pure Anada provides you with all the coverage and color without the chemicals, synthetics, and dyes. After reading that, I couldn't wait to see what would arrive.
And oh boy, did they come through. A lovely bag of cosmetics arrived at my door in tons of delicious colours. Knowing that I wanted to try some and give the rest away, I made my selections carefully, keeping a Natural Liquid Gloss for Lips in Morden's Blush and two Luminous Mineral Colours for Eyes in Cafe Latte and Storm for myself.
I chose well.
While it took my morning-addled brain a few minutes to figure out how exactly to get in to the Luminous Mineral Colour pots (and I'm still not sure I did it right!) the effort was worth it. The powder is fluffy in the container, but goes on extremely well - smoothly but doesn't go blotchy like some powders can (a good brush helps with this) and lasts all day. They aren't kidding when they say luminous, either - this stuff is sparkly! I loved it and got several compliments on it, and due to the fact that I like getting compliments, it's now made it into the regular makeup rotation.
How about the Natural Liquid Gloss? This is an excellent choice for someone who enjoys bold lip colour. The gloss is surprisingly densely coloured (If you think of the level of colour in say, a MAC LipGlass, this colour is much richer). As a result, I found I didn't apply it very thickly as I prefer a pale lip. The hint of Tangerine gave it a bright, fresh scent which was quite energizing to wear right under my nose. The gloss also doesn't have the stickiness common to many lip glosses, so right there it gets my vote. All in all, my experience with using Pure Anada was very pleasing - you should see where you can purchase it and try it out for yourself.
What's that, you say? You want some freebies too? Oh, all right my pretties. Just comment on this post by Wednesday, November 12 and tell me what Pure Anada product you would love to try out and why. Drawing will be made by Random.org and the answer posted here after the 12th. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you - either your blogger profile or an email address! And here's what the winner will receive: Velvet Matte Mineral Powder in Grey Flannel and Graphite, Luminous Mineral Powder - Deep Bronzer and Autumn, Natural Lipstick in Sugar Plum, and Tropical Lip Cream with Sun Protection. I can hear you squeeeing from here! Enjoy the giveaway, and good luck!
