Eco Minerals Mineral Makeup review
I initially approached Eco Minerals because I was so impressed by the numerous positive reviews their mineral foundations received from customers and beauty bloggers alike.
I was particularly impressed with founder Lulu’s commitment to providing high quality, ethically produced products. This passion is evident in everything they do. Committed to reducing plastic waste, Eco Minerals has done away with outer packaging on all of their products and offers 100% biodegradable Eco refills available at a discount so you can refill your plastic sifter jars for less than the cost of a new jar. Certified Vegan and Cruelty Free by CCF and PETA.
Why Choose Eco Minerals Mineral Makeup?
Unlike traditional makeup products, Eco Minerals Mineral Makeup is completely free of preservatives and chemicals -- like parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances which can wreak havoc on sensitive skin.
Eco Minerals Makeup is non-irritating and non-comedogenic meaning it won't clog your pores, causing further breakouts. It can also be a lifesaver for women with redness or skin conditions like eczema or rosacea - the non-irritating minerals can help even out your skin tone without irritating sensitive skin. Unlike many other mineral makeup brands, Eco Minerals is completely free of fillers, talc or other ingredients such as bismuth oxychloride that can potentially irritate sensitive skin.
Eco Minerals foundations are available in two finishes. Eco Minerals Flawless with added kaolin clay is ideal for oily or combination skin eliminating the need for a mattifying primer. Eco Minerals Perfection is the perfect choice for normal or dry skin and won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. Both finishes provide long lasting, buildable coverage for a completely natural looking complexion. With a Color Match Guarantee (or correct color replaced for Free) you really can't go wrong.

Eco Minerals Mineral Makeup Review
We asked healthy lifestyle blogger Kari of Bloom & Clementine to do a review for us. Here is what she had to say about Eco Minerals
"The mineral foundation, kabuki brush, and illuminating powder by Eco Minerals are a must try trio for any green beauty looking for soft and perfectly finished skin. " Kari - Bloom & Clementine
Eco Minerals Foundation Review:
“Once upon a time I was addicted to Bare Minerals, a mineral powder foundation line that gave the most beautiful coverage and matched my skin perfectly. Imagine my upset when I started breaking out like crazy only to find out that they certainly aren’t as natural as I had thought. No, just because the company uses the word “minerals” does not make it the safest make up for your skin. Bare Minerals in particular had the ingredient, Bismuth Oxychloride, the main culprit in the bumps and blemishes forming all over my face after a few months of using this product…
…This mineral foundation is the bees knees and works JUST AS WELL as Bare Minerals had in terms of coverage and performance. I was expecting this to be similar to the other brands I had tested out before that worked fine but lacked that certain oomph.. but was I ever wrong! It glided on beautifully with the kabuki brush she had sent along with the powder (another gold medal for the brush as it is the first kabuki that I’ve owned that has a longer handle and is much easier to use because of that feature). It set perfectly into my skin without any creases or cake-iness. It.. Just.. Set.. Perfectly.. I sort of sat there stunned and then had to show Steve (who notices every tiny detail and was sure to notice the coverage I just got from a mineral powder) and he confirmed my excitement.. This foundation was a perfect match to my skin, covered beautifully, looked natural as ever, and made my complexion glow. So happy I’ve found this product and it is certainly one I will be re-purchasing when the time comes.”
Eco Minerals White Light Mineral Illuminate Review:
"She also sent me a small sample of an illuminator by the same company that adds a little more glow for the days you need it and this is a game changer for me. I swipe this powder over my cheek bones, end of my nose and chin… and voila! Perfect complexion."
Eco Minerals Kabuki Brush Review:
"This brush is much softer than most of the conventional kabuki brushes I’ve used in the past thanks to the fact that it is made out of synthetic bristles rather than animal fur. In fact, vegan brushes made of synthetic fibres last longer thanks to the fact that they don’t shed nearly as much and don’t break down after being used for make up and brush washing.This brush will last you for a very long time and can be used to apply any powder foundation perfectly!"
