I have been on a LONG journey trying to find makeup that I love with ingredients I don't hate. It's been very difficult because many companies out there say that their ingredients are natural, but when you go to read the ingredients list, you find a treasure trove of hidden ingredients that shouldn't be there. I've also found natural brands that I wanted to love so bad, but they just DIDN'T WORK well, at all! It's a nightmare that many of you probably already know. After years of shunning makeup and feeling like there wasn't a brand of makeup that I could stand behind, I finally stumbled upon a brand that is TRULY 100% PURE and natural, and I am totally stoked to wear makeup for all the special holiday occasions that are coming up this season!

The amazing vegan fruit pigmented makeup that we are talking about today, came from the good folks at 100% PURE (You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). I was generously given all of these products to review and giveaway, but my opinions are my own! I will only share with you products that I myself love and use personally!

Most of your drug store, grocery store, and high-end makeup is crap

You might be angry at me for saying this, but someone has to tell you the truth! The makeup that you are buying is likely full of crap ingredients. There are so many offending brands out there, it's extremely hard to find ones that are truly natural and contain safe ingredients. Many of these ingredients are inhaled into the lungs and/or absorbed into the skin. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and is capable of absorbing more than half of what comes in contact with it.

“As much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream.
They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.”
– Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf, April 2006 Issue of Women's Health Magazine.

If you take a look at the ingredients on your makeup labels (and it's important that you do) you will find a plethora of toxic ingredients that have been known to cause a whole host of problems including cancer, asthma, dermatitis, and more! Some of these ingredients that you should avoid in ALL of your cosmetic products are:

  • Parabens – One of the most widely used preservatives in bath and beauty care products, parabens prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and yeast in all of your beauty products. Parabens have been known to be hormone and endocrine disruptors, mimicking estrogen, and causing cancer, especially breast cancer. Parabens have even been identified in biopsy samples taken from breast and ovarian tumors. The use of parabens also has been linked to reproductive toxicity, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and skin irritation.
  • Fragrances – This category scares me the most because you really have no idea what you are getting when you see this listed on the label. A long time ago this term was created so that companies could protect their secret formulas for their specific scent creations. The problem with this is that you never know what kind of chemical concoction they’ve come up with to create this scent. The Environmental Working Group’s 2004 analysis of potentially sensitizing ingredients in cosmetics shows that “Approximately half of all products examined list the word “fragrance” on the label. Fragrances are considered to be among the top five known allergens” They also noted that certain types of asthma attacks are “specifically triggered by, and only by, cosmetic fragrances.”
  • Phthalates – This group of chemicals is used on many of our bath and beauty products to increase the flexibility and softness of plastics. Phthalates are known to be endocrine disruptors and have been linked to breast cancer, early breast development in girls, and reproductive defects in both girls and boys. Most of the time, phthalates aren’t even listed on the ingredients label. They’re usually added to fragrances and become part of the “secret ingredients”, therefore not having to be listed on the label at all.
  • Formaldehyde – Used in many bath and beauty products in the form of preservatives called DMDM Hydantion & Urea (Imidazolidinyl). These can particularly be found in shampoos and baby soaps. These formaldehyde-releasing preservatives have been known to cause joint pain, cancer, skin allergies, rashes, depression, headaches, chest pains, ear infections, and even insomnia.
  • Propylene Glycol – A synthetic glycerin type product that is most commonly found in anti-freeze, brake fluid,  and cosmetic  products sold in the US, Propylene Glycol is created during the petroleum refining process. Propylene Glycol not only dries out the skin, but it also is considered a STRONG skin irritant according to its MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)

It started with a search for the BEST mascara

A few years back, out of fear and frustration, I threw my hands into the air and declared to whoever would listen, “I give up! I'm not wearing makeup anymore!” As time went on, though, I was surprised to realize that I missed wearing a little bit of makeup. Wanting to start small, I started with my favorite item in my makeup bag, mascara. I waded through the “top” vegan and natural makeup brands, trying to find one that had ingredients I was excited to put on my skin. It took awhile to sift through them all, but after a ton of research, only one company stood out with their completely natural ingredients, 100% PURE. With high hopes, I pressed the checkout button and waited for my blackberry pigmented mascara to ship to me. When I first opened the bottle, the blackberry smell wafted up to my nose, surprising me with its delicious undertones. I was even more pleased to find that this mascara worked just as I was wanting it to. That bottle of mascara prompted me to look up their website, and I was hooked!

From Day to night with a simple change of the lips

It was easy to create two beautiful looks with one set of makeup! I simply wore lipgloss during the day and replaced that with a bright and festive lipstick for my evening look! I didn't change any of my other makeup! These are what I used on both:

DAY LOOK

NIGHT LOOK

  • Amy Madsen Lee

    I wear make up just to feel more put together!

  • Christina P.

    I feel a little more polished with a bit of makeup on. Plus, it’s fun!

  • Kathy McClary Brumbaugh

    I quit wearing makeup years ago due to my extremely sensitive skin. I look forward to trying 100% pure makeup. Thanks for sharing this.

  • Meghan

    I love to use make up to accentuate my natural beauty.

  • Jenna D

    I’m thrilled to have found this brand through you, thanks so much!
    I’m a daily foundation/tinted moisturizer wearer because of uneven skin tone, dryness and redness, and would love the opportunity to put a bit more effort into it 😉

  • Dawn Carter Osterhoudt

    Makeup is a must for me. With deep set eyes, I need the eyeliner and mascara to make my eyes noticeable. I can really do without the rest if I have to, but luckily I don’t! I am very excited to hear about 100% pure make up. I’m a breast cancer survivor and try to remove as much toxic chemicals from my life that I can.

  • Angie Lynch Ortiz

    I found these products a few years back while trying to find an all natural body wash and lotion that wouldn’t bother my husbands very sensitive eczema. These products have been the best for our entire family and I feel like they truly pamper my skin. The make up leaves a luxurious feel as it is weightless and natural looking.

  • Rain

    I have been looking for a great mascara. This one sounds great can’t wait to try it.

  • Victoria Klingonsmit

    I love to use makeup because it enhances my natural beauty. I dont wear a lot but it makes a big difference. I love using products with all natural ingredients, that are better for my skin.

  • Angelica Ruiz

    Why do I love to use makeup? What little girl doesn’t love makeup?! While I’m not a fan of heavy make up for myself (and lord knows I can’t contour or highlight to save my life!), eyeliner is a must for me! I just feel like it makes my eyes pop. Makeup makes you feel “sane” and even just a little eyeliner can make me feel pretty again, especially when I’ve had a rough day or maybe I’m sick or just feeling frumpy. Not that I believe I NEED it, but I like the effect and feel more confident with it.

  • Katja Cooper

    I also have been having a hard time finding real natural makeup. Thank you so much for the article. Best of luck to everyone!

  • Jodi Schreifels

    This is a great post. I don’t wear make-up very often anymore, because I don’t want to put anything on my skin that may cause damage, but this will be my first choice when I am ready to purchase something new. This would make great birthday gifts for my daughters! Definitely want to try the lip colors! Have you had an opportunity to try their shower products?
