Beauty Find: Mineral Metallic

April 19, 2007 by Courtney

What: Mineral blush you won’t waste from Alima Cosmetics.

Why: I’ve been afraid of mineral cosmetics for a long time. For someone that is generally makeup-phobic, something that was promoted as ‘makeup concentrated’ didn’t get me very excited. Luckily, a friend urged me to check out Alima Cosmetics, a Portland-based company that works exclusively with natural minerals to create concentrated colors for the face, cheeks and eyes.

One top seller, the mineral blush, is particularly non-threatening. Since their Web site is loaded with information on mineral cosmetics and how to use them, I was able to start of easily — simply dip your brush, shake and sweep.

With 14 different colors to choose from -– and sample sizes that only cost $1 if you can’t decide on the one that is best for you -– the average user will discover the blush will last for months. I’m a particular fan of their newest color, Apple Blossom, a pale pink that is great for a little bit of color on my still-sunless skin. Plus, since they are inorganic compounds, mineral cosmetics will last indefinitely as long as they stay dry -– perfect for a person who throws away more spoiled makeup a year than she uses.

Price: $14.00
