CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Orchid Blue Mineral Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!*CLOSED*

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011


Nat­ural min­er­als give long last­ing cov­er­age.  Min­eral Make up gives a light­weight nat­ural feel that allows your skin to breathe, unlike talc-based prod­ucts that can clog pores and dam­age skin.

That is why I was ecsta­tic to find Orchid Blue Min­eral Cos­met­ics!!


Tra­di­tional makeup is loaded with harm­ful chem­i­cals that will clog your poors. Min­eral makeup is the most nat­ural makeup you can get. There are not any fillers such as min­eral oil or FD&C col­or­ings or perser­v­a­tives. The base ingre­di­ents of all Min­eral Makeup is Tita­nium Diox­ide ‚Zinc Oxides, Iron Oxides and Mica. Tita­nium Diox­ide is con­sid­ered an anit inflam­ma­tory so it will help sooth the skin. Many doc­tors have stated that Min­eral Makeup is non comod­e­genic which sup­ports the claim that it will not clog your poors. Some with acne have found less of an irri­ta­tion using Min­er­als. Another sell­ing point for Min­eral Makeup is the sun pro­tec­tion. Usu­ally there is a nat­ural rat­ing of about SPF 15. This is due to the high con­tent of tita­nium diox­ide and zinc oxide. Tra­di­tional make­ups have harsh chem­i­cal sun­blocks. Min­eral makeup is sheer and yet has incred­i­ble cov­er­age. Some times you will hear the com­ment you feel like you have noth­ing on your skin. With today’s fast pace woman min­eral makeup is the choice for a beau­ti­ful healthy makeup!


Orchid Blue Min­eral Cos­met­ics are light and airy when applied. You do not feel like you are wear­ing a mask or a heavy layer of make-up that you feel when using other non-mineral make up prod­ucts. Min­eral make up has a weight­less feel­ing that many women say feels like they are not wear­ing any make up at all.  Women with oily skin find that min­eral make up to be a good foun­da­tion for their skin issues. Since min­eral cos­met­ics have no oil in them it makes a per­fect solu­tion for oily skin.
Some of the ingre­di­ents in Orchid Blue Min­eral Cos­met­ics help absorb the oil in the skin keep­ing it look­ing fresh all day!!

I was excited to be able to review their awe­some foun­da­tion, gor­geous coloured shad­ows, and a phe­nom­e­nal pot gloss called “Vixen” which I am absolutely crazy about!! I had a chance to wear all of it last evening, and my skin both looked and felt great!!

Shop­ping at Orchid Blue Min­eral Cos­met­ics is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side!

Choose from many dif­fer­ent shades and colours:

Fin­ish­ing Veils

    Sweet Libertine Cosmetics Review!

    Wednesday, December 8th, 2010


    Sarah Waller started Sweet Lib­er­tine Min­eral Cos­met­ics on Feb­ru­ary 14th, 2009. Unsat­is­fied with the qual­ity and price of high-priced cos­met­ics, she spent months try­ing to find a bet­ter option. It wasn’t long until Sarah was mak­ing her own eye­shad­ows, blend­ing col­ors and micas and oxides. Her friends heard about it and asked her to list some in her Etsy shop and she did – and the entire store sold out within an hour. Sweet Lib­er­tine con­tin­ued to grow over time and is now run by Sarah Waller and her hus­band, Justin.



    What I like about Sweet Lib­er­tine is that they blend  most of her own colours. The names of the prod­ucts are absolutely awe­some.  I love the humour and wit behind the business!!

    I had the oppor­tu­nity of being able to review Sweet Lib­er­tine Shad­ows, I really liked the shad­ows. A prob­lem I have with a lot of min­er­als is that they tend to get muddy/cakey on my lids right away. These colours kept an excel­lent level of iri­des­cence and  clar­ity  through the work­day. As with any min­eral shadow, primer is a must!


    I give Sweet Lib­er­tine a huge thumbs up! Shop­ping online with them is a com­plete snap as every­thing you are look­ing for is so neatly categorized!

    You can shop inex­pen­sively by click­ing here for their website.
