The one with fruit pigmented technology.

Meet 100% Pure, an organic beauty brand that aims to provide healthy skincare, quality bodycare, and natural cosmetics.  Using the highest quality ingredients, 100% Pure offers 100% natural, 100% cruelty-free, and 100% pure products.  Their products contain no synthetic preservatives, toxic chemicals, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors.  They say they offer “truly health food for your skin.”

It’s reassuring to know that they are brands like 100% Pure that facilitate transitioning into #greenbeauty products.  Surprisingly, there are many toxic chemicals in many commonly used brands.  In recent years, these toxic ingredients have been clinically proven to cause numerous side effects, which include anything from skin irritations to cancer.  #sorrynotsorry to scare y’all, but it’s true (see all those lawsuit commercials on tv).  From a medical standpoint, yes these are all risks to using products containing toxic ingredients.  One person can develop only a skin irritation, while another person can possibly get cancer.  However, like all other medical conditions, using these toxic chemical brands will not be the only reason one gets these side effects, rather many things have to be taken into account.  Enough of the medical rant, back to 100% Pure.

I love the idea behind 100% Pure’s cosmetic line because they use fruit pigmented patent-pending technology to add color to their cosmetic products.  So what are fruit pigments anyway?  They say that “fruit pigments are what makes strawberries red, what makes blueberry skin blue – fruit pigments are fruit colors.”  All their cosmetics are colored not only with fruit pigment but with vegetable pigmentations as well.  The beauty of these fruit pigments is that it still contains all the vitamins and antioxidants found the fruits.  So in addition to adding color makeup to your face, y’all are adding the vitamins and antioxidants directly onto your skin.  In my books, that’s a double win.  I got my makeup on, and I got added benefits to help my skin look youthful.  🙂

So it turns out that the brand I’ve been following on Instagram just so happens to have a storefront at the local mall (any of y’all from SoCal, they have a store location at Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, CA).  I guess it’s been a while since I’ve been to the mall or just happened to not pay too much attention (sorry 100% Pure, please forgive me, but I found you anyway, so let’s be friends).  🙂  Oh am I glad they’re local, and I hope they stay forever.  I’ve been in the store a couple of times just to browse and see firsthand what they got to offer.  Anything from skincare to bodycare to cosmetics, they’re seriously a one stop shop.  The ladies at the Del Amo location are so warm and knowledgeable.  I swear I asked a million questions, and they happily answer every single question I had.  Awesome customer service!

Today, I knew I had to check out 100% Pure again because I’m due for a new foundation and concealer.  For many years now, I have been a mineral powder foundation kinda girl.  I absolutely love it because I like that I can add a few drops of face serum or oil to the loose powder to create a liquid foundation concoction for a more dewy look.  I also have been using a cream concealer for many years as well, but am looking for one that is on the nontoxic side.  So again, I went into 100% Pure with another million questions, and the ladies there were the sweetest.  The one that assisted me helped color match me.  My current gripe about their face cosmetics products is that they’re limited in color range and their colors aren’t consistent between products.  What I’m sayin is that they have 8 foundations shades to choose from, which in my opinion is just not enough to cover a wide range of skin tones.  Also, like I mentioned, the colors aren’t consistent between the products.  The White Peach Fruit Pigmented Cream Foundation is not the exact same color are the White Peach Fruit Pigmented Foundation Powder.  So odd, but now y’all know it’s important to get color matched.  🙂

After literally spending over an hour in the store, this is what I got (spoiler, I walked out with more than just a foundation and concealer):

100percentpure_makeup_haul_foundation_powder

  • Fruit Pigmented Foundation Powder in White Peach. I opted for this one because I don’t know how my oily skin will react to a cream or liquid foundation (it’s seriously has been a long while since I’ve used any of those).  This foundation powder is a pressed-powder that offers medium coverage with a matte finish.  I was told that this powder is buildable to a fuller coverage if desired.  100% Pure says that this is a “super lightweight face powder to give you a beautiful, flawless, poreless complexion.”

100percentpure_makeup_haul_concealer

100percentpure_makeup_haul_cocoa_bronzer

  • Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer in Cocoa Glow. I opted for a new bronzer as well because my old one was, well, old.  I figured might as well buy a new bronzer while I’m at it.  100% Pure says that this “100% Natural bronzer will give you a warm, beautiful, sun kissed glow instantly from pigments of cocoa, coffee, tomato and berries.”

100percentpure_makeup_haul_blush_powder

  • Fruit Pigmented Pretty in Naked Blush. I opted to add a nude neutral blush to my vanity.  I’m typically a brighter blush wearer, so this is definitely a change for me, but I’m excited for it.  Seriously, a girl could never have too many blushes (or makeup, in general).

100percentpure_makeup_haul_maracuja_mascara_dark_chocolate

  • Maracuja Mascara in Dark Chocolate. I opted for a nonblack mascara because I wanted a softer everyday eye look.  I have to admit I’m not a mascara user at all, but I’m hoping to change that.  I decided to give this a go because I trying new cosmetic products so might as well do as whole new makeup look.  100% Pure says that this “100% natural, 100% Vegan, gluten free mascara gives your lashes great volume and drama while holding your curl.”
