Giveaway Tuesday: Pure Anada Cosmetics!

And the winner of the Pure Anada giveaway is Hit Pay Dirt who said…

I’ve been wanting to switch to a mineral foundation for awhile. I’d love to try out Anada!

Congrats and contact me ASAP at talk at ecochick dot ca!

A few weeks ago, I got a lovely package in the mail from Pure Anada Natural Mineral Cosmetics. Good cosmetics are the one thing that’s hard to find in the eco-friendly world, so I eagerly accepted their offer to try out their samples. They talked a good game: Pure Anada Mineral Cosmetics, they say, is makeup in its most natural form. Made of simple, natural ingredients, Pure Anada provides you with all the coverage and color without the chemicals, synthetics, and dyes. After reading that, I couldn’t wait to see what would arrive.

And oh boy, did they come through. A lovely bag of cosmetics arrived at my door in tons of delicious colours. Knowing that I wanted to try some and give the rest away, I made my selections carefully, keeping a Natural Liquid Gloss for Lips in Morden’s Blush and two Luminous Mineral Colours for Eyes in Cafe Latte and Storm for myself.

I chose well.

While it took my morning-addled brain a few minutes to figure out how exactly to get in to the Luminous Mineral Colour pots (and I’m still not sure I did it right!) the effort was worth it. The powder is fluffy in the container, but goes on extremely well – smoothly but doesn’t go blotchy like some powders can (a good brush helps with this) and lasts all day. They aren’t kidding when they say luminous, either – this stuff is sparkly! I loved it and got several compliments on it, and due to the fact that I like getting compliments, it’s now made it into the regular makeup rotation.

How about the Natural Liquid Gloss? This is an excellent choice for someone who enjoys bold lip colour. The gloss is surprisingly densely coloured (If you think of the level of colour in say, a MAC LipGlass, this colour is much richer). As a result, I found I didn’t apply it very thickly as I prefer a pale lip. The hint of Tangerine gave it a bright, fresh scent which was quite energizing to wear right under my nose. The gloss also doesn’t have the stickiness common to many lip glosses, so right there it gets my vote. All in all, my experience with using Pure Anada was very pleasing – you should see where you can purchase it and try it out for yourself.

What’s that, you say? You want some freebies too? Oh, all right my pretties. Just comment on this post by Wednesday, November 12 and tell me what Pure Anada product you would love to try out and why. Drawing will be made by and the answer posted here after the 12th. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you – either your blogger profile or an email address! And here’s what the winner will receive: Velvet Matte Mineral Powder in Grey Flannel and Graphite, Luminous Mineral Powder – Deep Bronzer and Autumn, Natural Lipstick in Sugar Plum, and Tropical Lip Cream with Sun Protection. I can hear you squeeeing from here! Enjoy the giveaway, and good luck!

    I’d want to try their Liquid Gloss for Lips because I love lipgloss and I always want to try to find good ones.

    Hi, I would love to try the Mineral Foundation! I’ve never tried it before although I’ve heard sooo much about Mineral Make-up! Thanks!

    I want to try the mineral powder because that’s a staple of my makeup routine. I’ve been wanting to try mineral makeup forever but never remember to look for it. Will have to look for this brand.

    Truthfully, I want to try everything! But if I have to be specific, the powder and the gloss are my first two choices. As you know, I have to have everything chemical free and so far everything I’ve tried cosmetics wise has sucked. Your review has given me hope that there are cosmetics out there for me somewhere.

    I would love to try their natural lipsticks. My lips are real sensitive and the chemicals in most lipsticks bother me so a natural lipstick would be great.

    The Tropical lip cream with sunscreen sounds great – and the velvet matte graphite powder sounds scrumptious – eye shadow I assume?

    Wish me luck!

    I don’t need any freebies cause I sell it in my shop where all you eco chick readers get $5.00 off all the time! I love this product, it stands up to it’s claim and I have nothing but praise from my customers who purchase it! Whoever gets the free stuff is a lucky individual in deed!

    I would love to try the eye shadows. I have very sensitive skin, & my eyelids become very itchy with most products, so half the time I cannot wear eyeshadow, as my eyelids need to heal.
    I have searched & tried al ot of different products, with minimal luck….HELP!!

    I would love to try the eyeshadows. I have very sensitive skin, & react to most eyeshadows. My eyelids become very itchy. I then refrain from wearing eyeshadow, as my eyelids need to heal. I have tried many products….HELP!!

    I’d love to try one of their foundations because I have acne prone skin and I’ve heard that mineral foundations are better for your skin that other ones

    I absolutely love eco-friendly makeup! I’ve never heard of this company before, I’m so glad you posted about them. Their lip gloss and face mist sounds amazing. I’d love to win.
