So as you know, I’m a huge fan of mineral makeup: less harsh chemicals, more nourishing ingredients. I’m still in love with my Youngblood Mineral Foundation and Larenim’s pressed powder, blush and mascara, but I recently realized that it was time to start updating the rest of my eye makeup.
When I came across the Jane Iredale display at my local beauty supply, I couldn’t help but ogle all the eye shadow shade options laid out before me. I was looking to replace some of the colors from the-popular-department-store-brand I’d previously used for many years (which shall remain nameless), so I decided to give Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadows a try.
And I was not disappointed! The shadows go on with a smooth application and stay put for the day. And did I mention the colors? I had to stop myself from going overboard during my first experiment with the brand, so I started with Dawn (pictured left), Allure (pictured right) and Crushed Ice (not pictured). In addition to using them as eye shadows, I also love using darker shades like Blue Moon (not pictured) as an eyeliner, applied with my handy little small angled eyeliner brush.
Not only do the colors look great, but these eye shadows have a hazard rating of only “1” on EWG’s Skin Deep Database (an excellent score!), meaning they lack the chemical hazards found in most department store and drug store brands. What’s not to love? I can’t wait to try out more from their entire collection (when my wallet allows it).
Jane Iredale cosmetics are specially formulated for sensitive skin. They are free of synthetic fragrance, petroleum based colorants and chemical preservatives (including parabens). They are non-comedogenic, allergy tested and bonus: the company does not test on animals.
