I recently "met" the owner of EcoGlo Minerals at a EcoChicParties Twitter Party. I've been a HUGE mineral makeup fan for about ten years now, so I was excited to hear about another natural makeup company. I quickly contacted the owner and she graciously agreed to sponsoring a review and giveaway on my blog.
Before I jump in to my review, I'd like to take a minute to give you some background on the company. Below, taken from the EcoGlo Minerals website, is their philosophy and pledge as a natural beauty company:
I was very impressed with the foundation! I found it to provide flawless coverage and yet still remain virtually weightless on my skin! I didn't even have to use concealer due to its tremendous coverage. Under eye circles became non-existent, and blemishes/ scars disappeared- wahoo! The Light Rose Blush added just a hint of color to accent my cheekbones and I loved the warm, light pink color. The product that I loved the most, however, was the Ulti-Matte Finishing Powder! The translucent powder went on smoothly to create a flawless finish that made my skin totally look air-brushed! Also, I love that it contains zinc oxide for added sun protection. Below is my "before" and "after" comparison pic. It's not a huge difference, but that's what I LOVE about mineral makeup- it enhances your natural look rather than masking it. (I did go ahead and finish the look by adding eye makeup too.)
Below is my first attempt at "vlogging." Please bare with me, but there is a short tutorial on how to apply the 3-piece kit:
I really can't say enough good things about this company! They have excellent costumer service; quality products; a user-friendly website that includes make-up tips; and an awesome customer perk program where you can earn "loyalty points" towards future products.
