Painted Earth: Cosmetics From Nature That Are Cruelty Free & Vegan

Painted Earth

This is the second time I am writing about products from the company Painted Earth. The previous post, concentrating on some of the scrubs that are available, can be found by clicking on the link: Painted Earth. Just a reminder that Painted Earth is comprised of all organic and natural products. They are cruelty free, have no parabens, and do not use animal by-products (vegan).

Here is a photo of all the Painted Earth items I will be reviewing:

Painted Earth

I’ll start with one that is listed as being a limited edition:

Painted Earth Mineral Silk Radiance Powder

Yes, it’s a blush, but looking at it, it’s certainly beyond your typical blush. Check out the beautiful compact, with mirror:

If you saw this on display in a makeup counter, you would expect to pay more than Painted Earth is selling it for: $34.50.

The Mineral Silk Radiance, is more of a highlighter, than a blush, per se. I used this on my cheeks, over my blush, and on my brow bone right under my eyebrow. Wait until you see how it will make your eyes really “pop.”  You will have a nice subtly luminosity.

Worried that this will accentuate any lines you may have on your face? This is formulated with argan oil, so it will help set your foundation and blush, and not settle into fine lines. Rice Silk in the product will help to absorb excess shine and  Multi-Mineral Complex and antioxidant Vitamin A, C and E help balance and protect skin from “environmental aggressors.” It is talc and mineral oil free. Get it while it’s available, as it’s listed as being a Limited Edition. There are absolutely no cons to this, except that it’s not a permanent item– and I admit, it was so beautiful, I really didn’t want to “mess” it up to test it! :-)

Painted Earth Boo-Boo Gel

The Boo-Boo Gel is one of Painted Earth’s best sellers. Fans of this product have written in to add to the list of what this natural and organic gel has been successfully used for: acne, cuts, bruises, mosquito bites, and to prevent razor burn after shaving,  You can also try it to reduce the appearance of pores. If you have other suggested uses, let Painted Earth know.

Painted Earth

To describe it…it’s very cooling, and the texture is sticky, but once you let it soak in to your skin, it dries smooth.

Ingredients: Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera Gel), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green/White Tea), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint Oil), Laevo Menthol (Menthol), Organic Arnica Montana (Arnica), Ethylhexyl Glycerin

The Boo-Boo Gel does not have to be refrigerated, but it can be for extra cooling as it soothes.

$25.00 for 2oz/ 60ml (includes free shipping in the US)

Painted Earth Endelible Gel Liner

Here’s the warning from Painted Earth: “Lash addicts beware: Painted Earth’s Gel liner is highly habit-forming.”

No joke, this Liner is amazing. I have Black Cherry to share with you.

 Black Cherry:Painted Earth

 Black Cherry swatches:Painted Earth

Totally gorgeous color!! As you can hopefully see from the swatches, Black Cherry is a stunning color, and even a thin line gives you vibrant color and has a beautiful shine. I love that there is a glitter, even in a thin line.

The eyeliner formula is very smooth, so you can achieve a very precise thin line. Once dry, I had no smudging whatsoever.

It’s a nice bonus that Painted Earth supplies an eyeliner brush.

This may seem like a silly reminder, but…don’t forget to completely close the gel liner after use so it doesn’t dry out!

There are eight other gel liner colors in addition to Black Cherry. Check them all out on the Painted Earth Website.

Each liner is $17.80 (price includes free shipping in the US).

Painted Earth SuperWear Gel Liner

Once you let this eyeliner set, it is true to its name; it is not only smudge proof, but also waterproof. Simply use varying amounts of pressure on the liner for the look you want to achieve. I was able to test the color Noir, but there are also four other colors available.

Painted Earth
Painted Earth
Great black color! The reason that there is a nice shiny effect is due to the fact that the moisturizing and hydrating ingredients included are Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil. That’s why you’ll find that this pencil is very soft on your delicate eye area, and the creamy pencil will give you a smooth application.
I’m sure you already have one, but just in case…an eyeliner sharpener is required. The $18.50 price includes free shipping to the US.

Painted Earth Lips: Baby Hint of Mint

 Painted Earth

 

 Painted Earth

Baby Hint of Mint has a taste of, yes, mint, and it is not sticky!

The lipgloss is enriched with anti-oxidants, and Vitamin E and is priced at $6.50 There are 19 different colors to choose from at this time on the Website.

As indicated, all Painted Earth products include FREE shipping in the US.

 

Last thoughts…

When I was asked to review Painted Earth products, I just couldn’t believe all the products that were available. Not only should you check out other colors (that I didn’t test), but look at the other cosmetics and skincare products available. Painted Earth is great for cruelty free, one-stop shopping!

What Does Painted Earth Cosmetics Offer?

In addition to skin care and makeup, there is hair care, Beer Wax Ecosoya Natural Repurposed Candles, high tech tools, jewelry and even pet care! You can check out all the offerings on the website, but today I will share with you what I have skin care and cosmetics.

I absolutely love that the ingredients are clearly listed, and there is even a separate page for more detailed information: Ingredients in Cosmetics.

Two of Painted Earth’s Scrubs: 

I have two scrubs to tell you about: Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub and the Lite Sugar Scrub.

Painted Earth

Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub

This is an amazingly thick scrub that looks good, and smells delicious. I would describe the Scrub as smelling fruity. This is an all natural facial scrub that is infused with blueberries and cranberries and has has anti-oxidants, Vitamin C, and essential oils.

I applied this Scrub on my wet face, and found that it was a gentle exfoliant. I rinsed off with warm water and had really soft skin afterwards. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems at all. I did not use this every day, as I was testing the scrub as well, but the directions indicate that it can be safely used that often. It’s that gentle!

Packaging: After you unscrew the jar, there is an inner cover to protect the Blueberry Scrub.

Check out the rich Scrub:

The bottom of the jar has a label with the ingredients:

Painted Earth

Ingredients: Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Olea Europaea (Olive Seed), Jojoba Beads, Hibiscus Sabdraffia (Hibiscus Buds), Cranberry Fibers, Organic Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry), Carbomer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Punica Gradatum (Pomegranate), Citrus Aurantium (Petit Grain Essential Oil), Organic Rheum Palmatum (Rhubarb), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl (Vitamin E), Citrus Nobilis (Tangerine Essential Oil), Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol.

120 ml/4 0z. for $28.00

Painted Scrub

Lite Sugar Scrub

A natural, deeply exfoliating treatment infused with nourishing ingredients

After unscrewing the jar, a protective cover:

Painted Earth

The Lite Sugar Scrub is formulated with fine grind sugar granules and active raw ingredients designed to be therapeutic.

I love the Lite Sugar Scrub, and I believe that you will, too!  You use it on your face, up to twice a week, as well as on your body.  For your face, gently rub the Lite Sugar Scrub in a circular motion, and then rinse off with warm water. As the directions indicate, you’ll feel that the Scrub leaves a bit of oil over, but just pat it dry. Do not wash it off, and then apply a moisturizer. The reason that you don’t want to wash off any oil is that these are conditioning oils that will soak into your skin to continue to nourish it.

Yes, it is possible to make sugar scrubs, but are they going to have the benefits that the Painted Earth’s Lite Sugar scrub has?

Painted Earth

“Organic sunflower oil for gobs of Oleic acids with high amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, also has beneficial amounts of lecithin, and unsaturated fatty acids. Deeply nourishing and conditioning for the skin and it is highly recommended for recipes designed to treat dry, weathered, aged, and damaged skin. It is easily absorbed and applied.

Coconut oil for beneficial Lauric Acid in high quantities. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which has the additional beneficial function of being translated into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia.

MSM, which is organic sulfur  from the Oceans of the world.(MSM) occurs naturally in the human body. It actually makes up 5% of the human body and is essential for every organ, cell, tissue, hormone, enzyme, antibody, and function found in the body. This whole food is a beautifying mineral, and contributes to hair, skin, nail, and joint renewal and health. Bio-available, MSM must be continually replenished for optimal youth, nutrition and health.

Kukui Nut Oil has been shown to be effective in soothing psoriasis and eczema. High linoleic and linolenic acid content. Kukui Nut Oil contains Vitamins A, C, and E, providing anti-oxidants that help to protect the skin.

Macadamia Nut oil is one of the best regenerative oils available. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by ones skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil is a fabulous, protective oil with a high absorption rate and has been successfully used as a healing oil for scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations.

Vitamins A and E are for natural preservation, free radical scavenging, antioxidant activity, and fat soluble skin cell food.”

On the back of the jar, the ingredients are listed:

Painted Earth

Ingredients: Sugar, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic High Oleic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Oil), Silica, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Aleurites Molacana (Kukui Nut Oil), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil (Macadamia Oil), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl (Vitamin E). **Whole Foods Premium compliant 09/2010

120ml/ 4 oz. for $26.50

Cons? None that I can come up with!

In a future post, I will write about the cosmetics that I received from Painted Earth.
