Naturally beautiful – Guest post by Stylewise by Debra

Hello my loves, today a special friend of mine is guest posting on Coco et La vie en rose fashion blog. Please give a warm welcome to lovely Debra from Stylewise by Debra.

For years I have tried new eye shadows only to end in frustration. After only one hour of application of eye color, my eye lids would begin to itch. And by the time I could take it off, my eyes would be swollen as well as dried out. Ouch!! I gave up the thought of ever wearing pretty eye shadows again. Because I am a cancer survivor AND have sensitive skin, I began looking for more natural, preferably organic, beauty products. In my journey I stumbled upon the White Apricot web site . They share information about all things natural and organic and I joined their Green Grab Bag, a monthly sample of natural & organic products. I wanted to sample as well as educate myself about natural make ups. And that’s where I found my TRUE love…in eye shadows that is!! Included in my December 2012 box was a beautiful red shade of Elegant Mineral’s Poinsettia eye shadow. At first I was skeptical. You see, anything with the color red in it and I’m a goner. I reluctantly applied the shadow. An hour later and my eyes still felt fine. No burning, itching or puffiness. Hallelujah!! I could wear eye shadow again!! I quickly went to their web site to see what other shades they had available. They offer 49 shades of eye color, 9 of them being fashion colors.

But I had to know more. Why didn’t I break out from their products? What I learned is that their eye shadows are free from many of the harmful ingredients found in most over the counter make ups. Elegant Minerals provides safe shadows without nano particles, coated minerals, preservatives, talc, synthetic dies, parabens,carmine, fragrances, petro chemicals or bismuth oxychloride (the culprit for my breakouts). They provide small samples of their products online for $1.00 USD. So you may try them before you commit to their product. I love a company that offers that service! Or you may purchase a 5 gram container for $6.00 USD or 10 gram container for $12.00 USD. I have now tried nine of their shadows and loved each one. The radiant colors are long lasting, remove easily, and give me more beautiful eyes. Give them a try and see if you don’t agree that they’re the BEST eye make up you’ve ever worn.
