Organic and mineral makeup, like people, are often misunderstood. Lets shed some light to these common myths about the little treasures.
Myth #1: Organic/ Mineral makeup does not provide as much coverage as conventional makeup.
Fact: Not only does organic makeup provide a flawless HD finish, it is free of waxes found in conventional pressed makeup. These waxes actually exaggerate fine lines on your face instead of concealing them.
They are also free of talc which causes pore enlargement.
With ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, mineral makeup becomes a natural sunblocks, protecting your skin from free radicals, UVA rays and UVB rays.
Yes, you can now have guilt-free makeup that is actually good for your skin!
Myth #2: Organic/ Mineral makeup is not longwearing
Fact: Real organic and mineral makeup actually stays on much longer than conventional makeup, you’ll look fresh and flawless all day without any touch-ups needed. Because of its high concentration, you only need a light application for a smooth matte finish.
After you switch to mineral-based products you won’t need to run out and buy a new foundation every month.
Myth #3: Organic/ Mineral makeup has a short shelf life
Fact: Because it is essentially made from rocks, mineral makeup has a much longer shelf life than you’ve been told. Organic makeup uses natural preservatives like Coconut Oil, Grapefruit seed extract and Rosemary Oil Extract which are also antimicrobials and antioxidants.
Most naturally derived mineral makeup lasts for up to 2 years. In any case, if you have not used a product for more than 2 years, it is likely you will never use it.
Myth #4: Mineral Makeup is expensive!
Fact: Mineral makeup is essentially concentrated makeup, so you will notice that with the strong pigments in mineral makeup, a little goes a very long way! Since one container of mineral foundation is equivalent to 4 or more conventional foundations, you can now spend a whole lot less buying large quantities of makeup!
