Dust Organic Mineral Cosmetics

Thanks to their website for the image!
I finally got to stop by the Body Lounge in Saratoga Springs to check our Dust Organic Mineral Cosmetics.  Another great eco-friendly and cruelty-free mineral make up line.  This one was created locally in my area by Aleah who is both a Certified Licensed Esthetician and Master Makeup Artist.  Aleah owns the Body Lounge in Saratoga, a very different kind of spa.  Of course, the part I was most excited about was her line of mineral make up, Dust.  I got to sit down with Jennifer who is the Body Lounge's make up artist.  She helped me pick out some colors I liked so I could finally try them out.  

The eyecolors I picked up were Orchids & DiamondsSagebrush Pearl, and Golden Green. I took a lot of pics and wore them recently.  Here are my pics and comments: 

Pros: 
  • Local company, made in the USA
  • Cruely-free animal friendly
  • Earth friendly
  • Gorgeous color selection, vibrant shades, fabulous depth, some opalescent/holographic-like effects
  • Chemical free, natural and organic
  • I have a local place where I can go pick them up or if you order only shipping is a flat rate
Cons:
  • A little pricey ($20 each for eyecolors)
  • Smaller jar size
  • Fill level of the jars isn't "full" which I know is important to many
It was suggested that I poke a hole or two in the seal to get the color out but that didn't work well for pics
