Blending In

The benefit of an insomnia-fueled infomercial bender? My discovery of mineral makeup. There I was watching TV one ungodly hour of the night when I got sucked in by a spiel about how mineral makeup is good for you. How’s that? Mineral makeup is made from naturally derived materials, as opposed to chemicals. Which brings me to today’s post: Everyday Minerals. While I didn’t discover it on an infomercial, I did come across it via the web. And, since it rained cats and dogs all day yesterday, I though what better time to road test this line of mineral shadows, blushes and bronzers than now?

This go-round what sucked me in was the organic, vegan, eco- and animal-friendly aspect of the brand. Plus, it’s affordable. Lipsticks for $7, starter kits for $25, shadows for $9. Here’s what else I liked: The brushes, made from bamboo, are awesome socks. The bronzer is stellar, too. Best of all, though, the look is natural, which is what the end result of a good makeup should be.

Further getting my natch on, when it was time to call it a night, I used these wipes from Blum Naturals to wash off my mineral makeup. Wipes are the lazy girl’s best friend. You know what I’m talking about. The fact that these are paraben-free and made with natural ingredients is the big, fat organic cherry on top.
