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
Bronz­ers
Lin­ers
Lips
Body Glit­ter
Brushes

 

 

I give Orchid Blue Min­eral Cos­met­ics a huge thumbs up as they have the best min­eral cos­met­ics out there anywhere!!

    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:

    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.

    You may also join their face­book fan page here, or fol­low them on twit­ter: @sweetlibertine

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest – SFR Products HerStyler Classic 1 Inch Zebra Hair Straightener Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

     

    After recently stum­bling upon the SFR Prod­ucts web­site, I was instantly intrigued with all of the great prod­ucts that they had to offer. SFR Prod­ucts car­ries every­thing you need and more includ­ing Hair Care, Min­eral Cos­met­ics, Facial Care and Body Care, as well as Nail Kits, Facial Kits and Body Kits!!

     

    sfs

     

    SFR Prod­ucts is cer­tainly a candy store for women! After brows­ing through all of their prod­ucts dream­ily for hours, it felt as if I were in Heaven!! With all of their low, unbeat­able prices — a woman could just not ask for more!

    I was sent this really PHENOMENAL Her­Styler Clas­sic 1 Inch Zebra Hair Straight­ener to review, and was totally amazed with it! Not only does it make your hair soft and shiny, it heats up so fast and gets the job done quick!

    “For all the animal’s print lovers! Her­Styler brought to you a wild styl­ish Zebra print Hair Straight­ener. This prod­uct is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion between high qual­ity Straight­ener and fash­ion­able accessory.

    Zebra Clas­sic Features:

    • 100% 1 inch ceramic plates for a safe use

    • Faster heat-up time than con­ven­tional straight­en­ing iron

    • On / Off switch

    • Light weight

    • Hot & ready to use in 30 seconds

    • Ergonomic design makes it com­fort­able to use.

    • Ultra-light: the body of the straight­ener is con­structed using light-weight, high-strength com­pos­ite mate­ri­als com­monly used in the aero­space industry.

    • High con­cen­tra­tion of neg­a­tive ions cuts straight­en­ing time in half

    • Can be used on any type of tex­ture of hair

    • 1 Year warranty

    DUAL VOLTAGE: 110V — 220V”

    z

    It is a great straight­ener, and well worth the money! I replaced my straight­ener which fell apart after only 8 months of use with this Her­Styler Clas­sic 1 Inch Zebra Hair Straight­ener. I absolutely love it. I have rather thick hair, but that’s not a prob­lem with this straight­ener. It leaves my hair very soft, not course and burnt feel­ing. And it takes me about half the time to straighten my hair than before which is so awe­some!! This has got to be the best straighter out there, and it’s afford­able! The read­out allows you to reach very high salon cal­iber tem­per­a­tures so it can straighten even the most curly hair! Great for defrizzing as well!!! I am beyond impressed, and give this prod­uct a HUGE thumbs up!
