I should asked with along with the shampoo/lotion question, but. shrug For sensitive skin and good coverage, ladies, what do you recommend? A friend urged me to try samples of "vegan cosmetics" and it made me break out horrendously! I thought,... (more)

Is makeup even paleo in the first place? Oh yeah, tribal body paint... Personally, I forgo the whole makeup rigamarole altogether. Aside from natural moisturizers like coconut/olive oil/shea butter etc I don't think healthy skin/eyes/lips need to... (more)

I know there's one other question regarding face wash out there, but it seems like a lot of the people who responded use very little (if any) make-up. I'm not quite ready for that jump, but did order new mineral make-up from Coastal Classic... (more)

Satapa, I wear pretty much full-on warpaint every business day: foundation, concealer, powder, blush, eyeliner -- the works. I do this even though I'm fairly freaked out by the heavy metals in commercial cosmetics, so I'm slowly replacing the crap... (more)

Other questions have been asked about cleaner / healthier brands of make-up, but I'm specificially looking for make-up without titanium dioxide. It seems that most brands have it, even the mineral make-ups. I just came across the following in... (more)

I have been in search of mineral makeup that doesn't have bismuth oxychloride, titanium dioxide or mica and since ultramarines and chromium are not approved for the lips I don't want it on my skin either. I looked into epic beauty but they use... (more)
