I’m all in a tizzy because of a recent natural cosmetics discovery. Liz from EDS tipped me off to a company called 100% Pure, which makes a bunch of delicious-looking stuff, including a whole line of fruit-pigmented cosmetics.
I’ve been wanting to find and/or just launch for myself a line of naturally pigmented cosmetics for years. I’ve long relied on Mama Coco’s Red Hibiscus Lip Rouge as a subtle natural lip color in a super-moisturizing and yummy base — the stuff is pigmented with rose and hibiscus petals. Exquisite, no? But the color isn’t very strong at all, and this is the only pigmented product they make. So I had visions of creating beet-pigmented lip stains and natural concealers and whatnot.
And now I see that 100% Pure has a bunch of lip glosses, plus cheeky stains and even concealers, that are all naturally colored. So fab! I’m going to have to place an order, I can just tell. Bummer that they don’t do stains, since Grant refuses to kiss me when I have any kind of goop on my lips. But still, a girl can gloss it up from time to time!
I also love that they do some shimmery versions and some not-so-shimmery. For some reason, lately I’m just not into shimmery lip stuff AT ALL, so I like having shiny-but-not-sparkly options. I imagine I’ll sample a few lip colors, plus one cheeky and one concealer (in my first order, hehe). Liz also mentioned a lovely-sounding body butter, and I see more than a couple non-cosmetics products that caught my eye, including a caffeine-infused eye cream — could this be the end of my search!?
Yet another bonus is that they have a free shipping minimum of $50. Since I adore Internet shopping but hate knowing I’m wasting money on shipping costs, I’m always happy when a place offers a free shipping minimum, especially when it’s an affordable one. I can’t wait to give these guys a try — I’ll definitely update with my reactions. Fruit-tastic!
