I heard about Sassy Minerals a few months back and decided to investigate. Sassy are a company who mix their own mineral make-up in America. They do not test their products or ingredients on animals and will not deal with companies who do. Hurrah!
Minerals: An introduction
Mineral make-up is a fine powder that can be used in several ways to achieve a polished look. Some companies press the powder, others leave it loose. It is reputed that mineral make-up has many advantages- the fine powder does not clog pores as easily as other make-ups which can lead to healthier looking skin. Also bacteria find it hard to live in the high mineral content, so there is little risk of your make-up causing an infection. Best of all, most products are made of organic and natural materials. I normally find minerals have a good pigment pay-off, so you only require a tiny amount on a brush.
Sassy have a fantastic range of primers, foundations, finishing powders, bronzers, blushers, highlighters, eye colours, eye liners and shimmers. In fact they have one of the best ranges I have coe across. The pigments can be used in many ways- nothing is ever exclusive or fixed purpose. An eye liner can be used as an eye shadow- or even mixed with vaseline to make a cream blush, or clear nail polish to provide a coloured polish. The possibilities are endless!!
Sassy ship to many countried including the UK. They were very friendly and helpful, and even wrote sweet notes on my parcel! I was very impressed by their range, and whats more the samples come in jars (sealed) only cost $0.75 each (around £0.45 at present time!) This means that you can match your skin tone very easily without relying on photos and guess work!
I have been using my samples for a few weeks now, and have no hesitation in reordering. The company seems to have a good ethos, and I have found the products and packaging quite good to work with.
I have some swatches to upload, and I want to do a few photos using minerals. However, I won't do that until my skin is a bit more settled because I feel bit like a freak!!!
Letting my skin breath as much as possible, and resisting poking!
Anyone tried Sassy?
