Revisiting: Some older 100% Pure Reviews from 2009

This is a blog post I wrote in June 2009. 
I decided to revisit it and add some updates and comments.  Old post will be in green, new comments will be black.   Enjoy! 

YOu can find 100% Pure and their products at

100% Pure Creamstick Liner Pencil & Liquid Liner 2-pc. Set

Creamstick liner pencils are fantastic. They go on creamy and smooth and the colors are great. I love them for a very quick application of some color on my eyes. I rub my eyes a lot because of allergies and it usually lasts as long as my BE, depends on just how much I rub my eyes LOL
The liquid liner was not as good for me. My biggest problem was the consistency. It was hard to get on well because it is not as creamy as you would expect. The color is pretty but the texture and difficulty to apply turned me off . 

I don't really wear these much at all, sad to say.  The creamsticks are great for a quick look though.

100% Pure Moisture Rich Lip Gloss Duo w/ Fruit Pigments

Fabulous! I adore their lip glosses. They come in the old traditional applicator where you get lots of gloss but they can leak a little. I usually get around that by wiping it off before I put it in my purse and then I put it in with my cell phone so it stays standing up. The new applicators are really cool, you twist and click to get the gloss up into the brush to apply it. The only downside is that you get less gloss. Their glosses feel amazing, smell good and leave your lips feeling soft. They are ALL pretty colors too. The color does not last long but it feels so good that you won’t mind reapplying throughout the day. 

These are still really nice glosses.  Great colors and applicators. They smell fabulous too. Reading this reminds me...go wear more gloss!

100% Pure Pink Champagne Luminescent Face Powder & Brush

I love this! When I got this set, I wore it daily. It is one of the few things I have worn through to the bottom of the tin already. It looks great on, gives a pink glow. Not quite like any of the radiances in shade. Almost makes me think of what it might look like if Glee became a Radiance. 

This is a winner, even now.  I barely have any of it left so I use it sparingly but still love it.  Sooner or later I will have to part with it and decide if I want to replace it or not.

100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream, 1 oz.

I wear this daily. I put it on in the morning and evening and it smells so good. It smells more like cookies than coffee. I have tried to find a good all natural eye cream and this was it for me. It has also been recommended in a few magazines. 

I still use this everyday, morning and night.  This is my all-time fave eye cream. That is all! LOL

100% Pure Bronzer

Great bronzer. I tried it in cinnamon. I love to wear it as a bronzer all over my face but especially to get my neck to match my face which it never does. It goes on great and the color is fabulous. I got it with one of their kabuki brushes which is so super soft and application is great. 

I have fallen back in love with this one recently.  I am running low on my faux tan matte from Bare Escentuals and this works great.  Not only is it great on my face, but in summer, my face and chest get color and my neck is still white as a ghost so I use this on my neck to even things out. This is another winner!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze 2-piece Set

I got these in the Lychee/Raspberry combo. Such pretty colors! They go on really smooth. I find my lips look really pouty and sexy in these. They are not a matte finish, they are more like a color stained lip balm. The raspberry goes on a bit smoother than the lychee so I am guessing the amount of creaminess relates to the main fruit the color comes from. 

Yeah...I am addicted to 100% Pure Lip Glazes.  I adore them.  I bought tons more on sale following this review.  If you search in my blog, you will find some posts with swatch pics.

100% Pure Organic Fresh Squeezed Strawberry Lemonade Shower Gel, 100% Pure Organic Fresh Squeezed Tangerine Juicy Shower Gel, 100% Pure Organic Virgin Coconut Shower Gel

Love them! You do need to be aware that these are much more liquidy than your usual shower gel. They are still great and last the same amount of time. They smell AMAZING. They really are 100% natural and still work great. The one thing I noticed about some of these is that the opening does get a little clogged but I can clean it out easily and use it with no problem. As for the coconut one, this shower gel gets the same great vote as above but the one note on this one, it does not clog the opening. Smells amazing and feels great on the skin. 

From what I can gather, these are not available in this formulation anymore.  They now do foaming body washes which are nice and smell just as good but part of me misses this formula.  I didn't mind that it was more liquidy. 

100% Pure Moisturizing & Juicy Lipstick Palette w/Fruit Pigment

Great lip palette. I love the colors and the creamy textures. My only complaint is that I want more lip brushes. 

I finally had to part with this palette due to age.  Lippies can build up bacteria because of all the moisture and this was starting to smell a little off, easy to tell with 100% Pure stuff because normally it all smells edible. RIP Lipstick Palette!

100% Pure Healthy Glow Powder with SPF 20 and Kabuki Brush (Peach Bisque)

Nice foundation powder. I love the brush. The foundation feels nice and light and goes on smooth. It feels light. Just like BE, it takes some time to adjust to how to apply. I use this on my lighter make up days. I just wish they had more skin tones available. 

I don't think I got the right shade for me but still wore it often enough to use it up.  I haven't replaced it, though I am curious about trying a different shade in their new foundations someday. 

100% Pure 3-Piece Peppermint Color Collection

I love this kit! The blush is amazing. It looks great on and really smells minty. Just be careful around your eyes because it does feel cool and minty. I keep reaching for this blush above all my others. The lip balm is really nice though not strong enough for overnight use for me. It is great during the day when I need a quick creamy hint of minty moisture for my lips. The powdered pearls are really pretty but you do not get as much as it looks like you get in the pics. You get a small baggy of the pearls to empty into the container with the pretty puff. Still well worth it in my opinion. 

This blush is still amazing! Love the powdered pearls, LOVE!  This was a winner collection.  If you can still find it, I am sure it would make a great gift for you or for a friend.

100% Pure Lip & Cheek Tint

I have 4 of these. They are really nice and the colors go on great. You can wear them on your lips, cheeks or even your eyes. I have to say that Strawberry is my absolute favorite on my cheeks. It gives a dewy glowy pink tone that I love. Their names tell you what effect you will get from the tint. Some are shimmery, some say glow and some say sheer. I seem to like the shimmery ones best. The only thing with these is you can feel them on your cheek if you put a lot on. 

Speaking of lippies getting old, I had to part with these but let myself replace my absolute favorite which was Shimmery Strawberry.  Still love these, really great for a quick cheek tint, lip color or all of the above.

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Butter 4-pc. Set

I have tried a couple of these but not all. The texture feels nice on. The tints look nice on the lips and they all smell great. Some of the cutest packaging I have ever seen. 

I am just not a big fan of lippies that come in tins or tubs.  It always gets caught under my fingernails or I make a mess trying to get too much out.  If I am delicate I don't get enough.  These are nice but I prefer balms and butters in a stick form. Easier to apply.

100% Pure Lengthening & Conditioning Mascara Duo

Great mascara! I have tried every shade, black tea, blackberry and blueberry. They look great on and really make a difference. My lashes always look great in these. 

Their mascara is still awesome.  I absolutely love it.  I still have a reserve of Black Tea and Blackberry.  This is some good stuff that really makes your eyes pop.  Hard to believe it is natural. ***Note: I was sent some of these for review purposes, you can search on my blog to read the full review and see pics***

100% Pure First Crush Lip Color Palette w/ Fruit Pigment
Great lip palette. Smells great and the colors and creamy textures are great. The tine is not hard to open like some of the other larger ones (see below). My only wish is that these came with a lip brush or applicator. 

Another lip palette that needs to RIP.  So sad to see it go. 

100% Pure Cocoa Pigmented Chocolate Lip Palette
This one was great but I returned it because the smell of cocoa was so strong. I love to eat chocolate but don’t like to smell like it I guess. They colors were so pretty it made me sad but I kept getting annoyed with the scent. Super creamy lip colors. The tin this one came in was much harder to open than some of the others. 

Still not a huge fan of cocoa smells unless it is for eating. 

100% Pure Cocoa Pigmented Eye Shadow Palette
Wanted to love this but didn’t. The colors were pretty but not as good as my BE. I found them hard to apply and wish they came with applicators or brushes that worked well with them. I got the best results when I used my fingers to apply them. It was much harder to use my brushes with this. Also, this was another hard to open tin. 

 I gave their eyeshadows a few more tries in other single forms, instead of palettes.  I like them now.  I find them much easier to apply with the right brush.  It makes a big difference.  I still prefer loose minerals to pressed for eyeshadows.
