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:

Foun­da­tion
Blush
Fin­ish­ing Veils
Con­ceal — Cor­rect
Shad­ows

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Mineral Makeup by Monavé Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

    Ever hear of Mon­avé Min­eral Makeup? Nei­ther did I unbe­liev­ably until recently. I wish I’d have found Mon­avé Min­eral Makeup ear­lier though! Espe­cially after hav­ing the plea­sure of review­ing their awe­some products!

    Let me intro­duce you all to Mon­avé!

    Where does the name “Mon­ave” come from?
    Mon­ave stands for “Mod­ern”, “Nat­ural”, and “Versatile”

    About Mon­avé, a blurb from their website:

    “Mon­ave started as a lit­tle seed…a dream to make makeup by  hand,   with sim­ple ingre­di­ents. The seed also had the expec­ta­tion that the prod­ucts had to be high-quality, high-performance. I grew up work­ing in health food stores, and much of the nat­ural makeup wasn’t very good. I didn’t want Mon­ave to be just another so-so nat­ural makeup brand. As my lit­tle tree grew, so did my dream. It started to extend into the realm of devel­op­ing and nur­tur­ing other women’s abil­ity and knowl­edge to cre­ate and sell their own makeup line. Some say that cre­ates com­pe­ti­tion, but truly, the root of the tree lies in what is given away, not what is held tight.”

    Mon­avé sells a wide vari­ety of both min­eral cos­met­ics as well as skin care prod­ucts! The prod­ucts that I got to review were EXCELLENT!! I was sent to review their famous hot-selling Unscented Inten­sive Emol­lient Base Facial Mois­tur­izer, one of their Mir­a­cle Peel Cloths, and a Oat­meal Honey Break­fast Bar! You can find an exten­sive cos­metic and skin­care line in all types of fab­u­lous colours and shades. From liq­uid and pow­der foun­da­tion to eye­shadow to cleansers and mois­tur­iz­ers, Mon­ave is cer­tainly a rep­utable brand name that you can trust for all of your cos­metic and skin care needs! Mon­ave even sells hair care products!!

    Shop­ping at Mon­avé is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side of their web­site, and their prices are truly unbeatable!

    Choose from:

    Cos­met­ics:
    Face
    New Shades
    Con­ceal­ers
    Cheeks
    Eyes and Brows
    Brushes
    Sparkly Stuff
    Free Makeup Sam­ples and Dis­counts
    Gift Sets
    Nails
    Lips

    Skin Care:
    Facial Cleansers
    Facial Ton­ers
    Facial Mois­tur­iz­ers
    Facial Exfo­lia­tors
    Facial Kits
    Body Cleansers
    Body Mois­tur­iz­ers
    Hair Care

    I am overly impressed with Mon­avé, and am extremely happy to have had the oppor­tu­nity to review their fan­tas­tic prod­ucts prior to pur­chas­ing. Once my Mon­ave prod­ucts run out, I will defi­nately be restocking!

    The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Mon­avé have gra­ciously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win a Mini Bling Gift Set in winner’s very own choice of shades! SWEET!!

    To Enter:
