recent eco beauty buys

and crazy eco buys1.jpg100% pure cocoa butter lipstick in prickly pear // i picked up a couple products from 100% pure while  i was in new york and i have become a big fan of the company.  after seeing some of their instagram posts on this lipstick, i just couldn’t resist the color and the semi-matte formula.  i can honestly say that this is one of the only bold lipsticks i have ever felt confident enough to wear both during the day and out at night – the other one being nars damned.  the color is a stunning pinky coral and the finish is more matte than semi-matte, which i actually prefer.  it is so easy to apply even for a lipstick-nube like me and lasts forEVER.  when the actually lipstick wears off you get a stain on your lips that is pretty much identical to the original color.  if you have fair skin and don’t feel like you can pull off red that well but want a bold lip, check out prickly pear.  you won’t be disappointed!  i was concerned at first because the tube is smaller than a normal lipstick bullet, but the amount of product is the same as the bite beauty amuse bouche lipsticks and much greater than luxe ones like nars, urban decay, and ysl – .15 oz or 4.5 grams, and now i love that there is no excess packaging!

alima pure pressed foundation in macadamia // i was on a pressed powder foundation search and was leaning towards the mineral fusion one when i remembered how much alli cherry raves about this one from alima pure.  this was a few dollars more expensive from what i recall but worth the splurge, i promise.  the formula is perfect, giving you slight coverage and a subtle matte finish without looking cakey or even that matte.  the color is perfect for my summer skin and the great news is you can buy the refill pans for a discounted price when you need a new one – you never have to buy the compact again.  overall i’m very happy i decided to try this brand and this product and would recommend if you are looking for a reliable pressed powder with a nice shade range.

eminence mineral illuminator in chai berry glow // i am sooooooo happy i finally bought this.  i have wanted this product for the past 6 months – why are there some products we never get around to buying even though they aren’t any more expensive than other products we get without thinking twice?!! – after hearing sam raving about it on her channel.  this is a gorgeous pinky peach blush with a subtle glow (no visible shimmer).  it’s a perfect blush for lighter skin tones and i think it would be a beautiful highlighter for deeper ones as well.  it’s similar to my favorite rimmel santa rose blush but with more color and more glow.  the packaging is beautiful and so hippie luxe.  i can’t get enough!
