Lisa Liguori of Simple Beauty Minerals contacted me a couple of months ago to let me know about her company’s mineral makeup and moisturizers. Actually, Simple Beauty has many natural products for face, eyes, lips, and skincare.
She sent me a few samples to try. After two months of using them, all I can say is wow. And it is time for me to reorder. And I need to try some of the other products.
Years ago when I was a sweet young thing, I tried a mineral makeup (powder and blusher) and I liked it fine, as best I can remember. But I went right back to the department store brand I had used previously – probably for no other reason than I happened to be in Macy’s.
These days, I’m a lot pickier about what I use, probably because it matters so much as I age. I don’t want estrogenic substances in my makeup or skin care products, my skin is more sensitive than it was when I was younger, and living in the High Sierra half the year means that all the moisture in my skin is sucked out by the dry mountain air.
Naturally, I was intrigued by the natural minerals and lack of allergens in the Simple Beauty line. I tried three products: a moisturizer, Whipped Olive Oil Creme; a powder, Silk Splendor Finish; and a blusher, Warm Pink Shimmer Cheek Color.
I really like the makeup. It has sun protection, naturally occurring from the minerals. It’s waterproof and anti-acne. It feels so light that it is not like wearing makeup and it looks great.
I LOVE the whipped Olive Oil creme moisturizer. I will admit to using a fairly pricy department store brand prior to this, but I swear that this is better, at a fraction of the price. (I was always a little nervous about what might be in the fancy (ok Lancome) jar, but because I did not want to turn into an apple doll, I kept using it.)
Oh, one more very cool thing – their model photos are NOT photoshopped. Truth in beauty – and I so appreciate that.
You can be sure that I will be trying other products by Simple Beauty. And Lisa was so sweet that she sent me a link for a 20% off coupon for new customers. Check out their website for more info and testimonials.
