If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I lost my makeup bag and I’m slowly making the switch to natural/organic beauty products. Seeing that I’ve been without blush for months and have been hesitant to replace it, I figured it was time. For some reason my cheeks are very sensitive to blush and assume it’s the chemicals in the product as well as the tools I’ve used to apply it. During my prime blush wearing days, I could never wear blush because the day after I wore it, I would get a rash on my cheek bones. I eventually discovered a blush that didn’t give the rash side effect, but wanted to find something more natural to go with my new-found natural/organic makeup journey.
I did a lot of research online and made a couple of purchases and returns. It’s difficult to find natural/organic blush colors when you have darker skin, but I finally decided on Real Purity (Indian Dust) powder blush. The ingredients are listed on the web site: Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Iron Oxide, Organica Silica, Vitamin E, Pycnogenol which I always like, and the colors seemed to appear deep enough to show up on my skin tone. You may also buy samples of the products, but I decided to skip the sample and go for it.
I was perplexed when the blush arrived, since the Indian Blush didn’t look anything close to what I had ordered. In my opinion, the color below (my Indian Blush) is more in the dark coral/pink range, versus the picture that appears on their website in the photo above (far right), so it sat on the counter for weeks.
Once I finally tried the blush, I loved it The color looked great on my skin and I’ve been wearing it for 3 weeks without a skin reaction.
Pros: The price was great ($13.00), deep pigmentation, cruelty free, they support Breast Cancer awareness and you can purchase most of the products in sample size.
Cons: The color chart photo didn’t match the actual product.
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 pumpkins (why pumpkins? my daughter’s nickname is Little Pumpkin Doodle)
Update: I purchased the ecotools blush brush and love it
Have you ever had a bad skin reaction to a beauty product?
