Orglamix Cosmetics Review and Giveaway! CLOSED

I recently had the opportunity to try out an organic line of pure mineral makeup called Orglamix.  Cheri was kind enough to let me choose 3 colors to test and review.  With over 125 different colors to choose from, it's easy to spend a while "window shopping" on the Orglamix site!

I was so excited to receive my order the day before I left on vacation.  The colors came packaged in 0.5 oz pots - perfectly sized for travel.  When ordering, I wasn't sure which shade of the mineral foundation I should try - I'm typically fair- to medium-skin toned, but in the summer, I'm tanned (I know, I know... a dermatologist's nightmare).  I emailed Cheri for guidance on picking the right shade and she was very quick to respond.  The "Bocote" she suggested was a good match for my summer skin tone.  When I tried it on, all three products were luxuriously silky-smooth on my skin. The blush and eyeshadow shades blended easily, and my face was done in a matter of just a couple of minutes!  One night, I also used the eyeshadow wet for a more dramatic look for a much-needed night on the town with my husband!

All Orglamix products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed - if you're not satisfied for any reason, just return the product within 14 days for a full refund.  According to the website, all products are PETA-approved, and made without synthetic ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes, petrochemicals, and phthalates.

Check out the Orglamix website to see all the vibrant shades!  And at less than $5 a pop, you can experiment with the bold, exciting ones like "Citron" and "Geranium" (which I think would be just perfect for carnival-time "dress-up")!  In addition to the single colors available, Orglamix has a variety of sets and starter kits available (like this one, which just might be my next order!).  And check out the Haute Beauty blog for makeup tips, and special sales on Orglamix colors!

Would you like to win some items from Orglamix?  Cheri has graciously allowed me to offer a lucky reader of mine to select any three colors from the following Orglamix formulas: Pure Organic Mineral Eye, Blush, Glow, Foundation, or Color Corrector.
