Orglamix Mineral Makeup Giveaway!

November 10, 2010

Before I went on hiatus, I was given the opportunity to review Orglamix mineral makeup. I was super excited because there had been a huge buzz about Orglamix in the “green” community. I was already using another mineral makeup line and had been a loyal club member for several years. That is, until I realized that as “pure” as they claimed to be, they were still found to have some negative ingredients in their products. Grrrr!

So what’s so great about Orglamix? Well…

“All foundation, cheek, and eye colors have been crushed to a silky, creamy powder form, but (here’s the big secret) they’re not actually powders. What they are is 100% pure minerals that are free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrance, and other harmful chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts…”

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Petro-Chemicals
– Phthalates

I tried out 3 different products in the line:

1. Pure Organic Mineral Foundation in Teak

TEAK - XL Pure Organic Mineral Foundation (medium to tan skin with golden undertones)

“A sheer, multi-tasking 4-in-1 organic mineral powder that serves as a foundation, concealer, powder, and SPF in one… Skin perfection combined with sun protection has never looked so beautiful.”

2. Pure Organic Mineral Glow Warm Radiance in Tourmaline

Tourmaline - Pure Organic Mineral Glow - Warm Radiance (golden bronze glow)

“Pure Organic Mineral Glow is designed to provide sheer coverage and a radiant soft-focus effect that perfects any look.”

3. Pure Organic Mineral Perfecting Corrector in Violace

Violace - Pure Organic Mineral Perfecting Corrector

“This high-tech color correcting, skin-smoothing concealer illuminates and brightens complexions instantaneously, so you’ll look more alert. The innovative formula and slight pop of purple banishes under-eye circles, erases dark spots (like sun exposure, dark patches, age spots, acne scars) and counteracts sallow undertones; giving every gal correction perfection. Enhance what you have and fake what you need!”

Sofia’s Ideas on Orglamix? Aside from loving how pure their products truly are, I loved that Papa immediately noticed when I made the switch from my other mineral line. The first 2 days of the switch, he kept commenting on how glowy & natural I looked. Dare I say that Orglamix felt even lighter and cooler on my face than my other line? I actually kept forgetting I was wearing it! I love Love LOVE it!
