An All Natural Makeup Palette For Classic Dressy or Fun Looks
As many of you have probably noticed during the past year-plus, I wear a lot of 100% Pure makeup, particularly their lipsticks, foundation, and mascara. I love the brand because their products are fruit pigmented, are 100 percent cruelty free, and do not contain any synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors. Many of the products are also gluten free.
So, of course I accepted when I was contacted by the brand and asked if I would like them to send me some products to try. I was especially happy to learn that one of the items was a makeup palette, because I already had several in my shopping cart on line and had not been able to decide which to buy!
accepting a brand gift for the first time
In the 15 months I’ve been producing my blog, this is the first time I have agreed to accept a complimentary item from any brand for possible review. Until now, none was a right fit for me. I already wear and love 100% Pure products, so it was a natural for me. This post is not sponsored, and the opinions are wholly my own.
my review of the palette
[Dressy Evening Look] I would use the entire palette to create a dressy evening look. The luminescent powder–and even the blush to some extent–create a satiny glow that I think looks perfect at night.
[Dressy Day Look] I would leave off the luminescent powder for day. Checking my makeup in the window, it was just a bit too much in bright sunlight, in my opinion. Also, because the blush has a slight glow to it, I’d only wear it when I knew I was going to be indoors and in air-conditioning. If you’re like me, and can glow on your own when it’s hot and humid, you don’t want your blush to make you look even more so.
[Fun-Playful Casual, More Natural Look] I would use only the eyeshadows, which all have a gentle sheen to them, and wear matte foundation and blush.
final thoughts on the palette
All in all, I think the palette is perfect for dressy looks, and also for fun-playful dramatic eyes. All the items in it have a slight sheen to them, so if you only like matte makeup, then this palette probably isn’t for you. If you like the palette and want to know more, I explain exactly how I used each item in the video (scroll to bottom of page).
Have you tried any of the 100% Pure palettes? I’d love to know what you think of them!

(ABOVE & BELOW) Before and after using the makeup products. I shot these in my car about three hours apart, before and after applying my makeup (and filming two videos). Unfortunately the lighting had changed, but hopefully you can at least get some idea of how I look with and without the 100% Pure foundation powder, lipstick, mascara, and Fruit Pigmented Sex Kitten Palette.
