Emani Minerals Review

clip_image001
My Review:
0353 Drama QueenI got to review the 0353 Drama Queen lipstick from Emani Minerals. =) Emani has nothing but organic, natural make-up. Chemical free makeup that provides long lasting wear, with high quality product.

I don’t usually go for bright lipsticks, but I have been feeling bold lately. I usually use  peach/light pink/light brown lipsticks. A GIRL has to have something dramatic in her lip wear, doesn’t she?  I felt I did. I had only chose lip glosses or light colors (as mentioned before). With this lipstick, I feel GLAMorous. Extremely classy and like I could take on the world. No wonder so many women wear bright lipsticks.

This lipstick is AMAZING, and nothing less. It feels so moisturizing, like a chap stick but has a sheen of a colored lip gloss. The color is wonderful, bright, and eye-catching. The formula they use is awesome, it stays on for a long time. Doesn’t wear off, and it doesn’t run.
This year my New Years Resolutions were many, but on top of my list was to go greener. I wanted to switch to mineral makeup, green cleaning products, recycle more…etc.
The reason I wanted to switch to mineral makeup is because our bodies are our temples. Using natural makeup prevents chemicals from entering your body. Skin DOES not block chemicals from entering your body, it actually absorbs it. So natural body products, hair products, and makeup products were my main thing this year.
I was glad to run upon Emani. Their products are 100% natural vegan. Makeup products with chemicals in them have been shown to give women an increased risk of cancer, infertility, and hormonal dysfunction. Their products are also paraben free  Why risk it when you don’t have to?
Thinking about what goes in your body is on your mind.. now what goes ON it should be also.
This company is also animal friendly. They do not test their products on animals, their products are made from plants, and their brushes do NOT contain animal hair.
I would love to try the 0354 Luscious0354 Luscious next. =)

About:
Emani Minerals products are vegan & gluten friendly, cruelty free, not tested on animals, and the paper goods are biodegradable and 100% recycled (25% post & 75% pre-consumer).
Emani chooses to use certified organic ingredients from plant or flower extracts in our formulations, we combined these extracts with key ingredients such as mica, titanium dioxide and iron oxides. Mica is a transparent mineral which is mined from the earth. It can be opalescent and sparkling or completely matte. It is often treated with iron oxides to yield brilliant color effects. Iron Oxides are natural oxides of iron that is combined with oxygen, varying in color from red to brown, black to orange or yellow, depending on the degree of water added. Titanium Dioxide is an inert earth mineral used as a thickening, whitening, lubricating, and sunscreen ingredient in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.
