CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Sappho Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010


JoAnn Fowler is the bril­liant make-up artist and busi­ness woman behind Sap­pho Cos­met­ics and the faces of many seem­ingly flaw­less celebs includ­ing the cast of Twi­light and the L-Word!

While work­ing in film and TV she decided to cre­ate a cos­met­ics line free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals that would feel good and that wouldn’t com­pro­mise on colours. Its almost impos­si­ble to find toxic-free make-up, even in com­mon min­eral makeup that you assume is all-natural.

Jo wants you to know what you’re putting on your body, and Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is the safe nat­ural alter­na­tive to makeup today!


“A new, green, eco con­scious, organic based makeup line. Free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics are sexy and look and feel great on your skin. We have dili­gently searched for for­mu­la­tions made with ingre­di­ents that sur­pass the EU stan­dards for safer cosmetics.

Each prod­uct has been cho­sen for it’s purity, ease of appli­ca­tion, qual­ity and beauty. We have found and devel­oped prod­ucts that we believe are truly won­der­ful…. pack­aged for util­ity and recy­cla­bil­ity and made in North Amer­ica. Some have organic con­tent, some are vegan — all are cru­elty, paraben and phtha­late free.

In all cases, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics promises full dis­clo­sure of ingredients.”

Sap­pho Cos­met­ics the col­lec­tion is used on the set of The L Word. The prod­ucts include a chemical-free foun­da­tion, as well as a range of eye­shad­ows, eye lin­ers, lip­sticks, glosses, blushes, and pow­ders in vibrant colours!


Sap­pho Cos­met­ics specif­i­cally does not use Parabens and Pftha­lates. Parabens are used to pre­serve cos­met­ics, and pftha­lates are used to soften and make cos­met­ics silky. Both have been linked to var­i­ous forms of can­cer. Sap­pho Cos­met­ics uses nat­ural mate­ri­als for their cos­met­ics and refuses to test their prod­ucts on animals.

Accord­ing to their web­site “Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is all about mak­ing up fear­lessly. It’s about learn­ing how to make up and being as dar­ing as you please but even more impor­tantly it’s about putting prod­ucts on our faces and bod­ies that will not harm us.”

I had the extreme plea­sure of being able to review these prod­ucts, and was beyond impressed with them! I will be order­ing more in the near future, and totally rec­om­mend Sap­pho Cos­met­ics to everyone!!


The very kind and gen­er­ous JoAnn from Sap­pho Cos­met­ics has gen­er­ously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the fol­low­ing from her web­site: A “Dare to MakeUp Fear­lessly Cos­metic Pack­age” which con­sists of ecoLux­u­ri­ous cos­met­ics, which are hand coloured and 100% free of all syn­thetic chem­i­cals! This will include a base (liq­uid or pow­der — as you wish), a set­ting pow­der, a pressed eye­shadow, a loose eye­shadow, a blush and a lip gloss! SWEET!!!!!
