After deciding to make the switch to mineral makeup, it was important to me to find a brand that was affordable without sacrificing quality. I’ve never used mineral makeup in the past, so this was my first experience with it.
Once I got used to the application process, I liked Joelle’s mineral makeup even better than my old liquid foundation. I found it had better coverage than the liquid foundation I was using, so I liked the results. It was as easy as any other mineral makeup to use, just have to apply in layers (I like doing veil, foundation, veil, then bronzer). And you need to tap the powder into the cap, swirl, tap off excess, then apply, just like most other brands.
I’m 28, and have oily/acne prone skin, so dryness wasn’t a problem, and it seemed to keep shine at bay for most of the day.
The price was right, only $10 for a basic-sized foundation. The only problem with the company I have is some of their products are natural (or appear to be) and some aren’t. They claimed a mascara they were selling was natural, but after recieving it and checking the ingredients, 10 of the 12 ingredients were irritating to the eyes!
So, my confidence in the company is compromised. I like the price, but I think I’d be willing to pay a little more to go with a company that is truly all-natural and honest.
Thanks Heather For the very helpful review.
I visited Joelle Cosmetics site and found a list of ingredients that they use for their mineral makeup, blush and eyeshadow. It was not on the individual products page but on an information page that explains more about their products:
Our ingredients include: mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxides
The company appears to take great care in their choice of natural ingredients for their mineral makeup so even though they do not list ingredients for their other products I think it would be easy to assume that all their products are natural especially when it says natural mascara.
As Heather can tell you it’s not always true. It always bugs me when there isn’t an ingredient list for each product. It’s the only way to be sure.
