Q. I have tried some other very popular "bare mineral" cosmetics and found that my skin started to
itch and irritate me, what causes this and how is your mineral makeup different?
A. The irritating feeling is cause mainly by the ingredient Bismuth Oxychloride. This is used in many so called natural mineral makeups because it is a cheap inexpensive filler that has binding qualities which allow the makeup to stick to the skin. Due to its chemical makeup it is viewed as shiny which makes it highly reflective. This ability to reflect can help camouflage certain aspects of the face like fine lines and wrinkles. While considered a natural element this ingredient chemically resembles arsenic and is very heavy, making it hard for many people to wear. Also due to its molecular shape it causes itching in many women. This ingredient can be excluded from mineral makeup and substituted for true natural substances that can produce a glow-like appearance and adhere to the skin, and that is what we at b.l.a.c. minerals have done. We do not use inexpensive fillers, because we believe that our makeup should be a small luxury for our customers.
Q. I have very oily skin, will your mineral makeup help reduce the shine and give me an even look?
A. Yes, mineral makeup has natural ingredients that control shine. The benefit to using our makeup is that it works with your skin. This allows the makeup to be evenly distributed. This creates a wonderful even healthy look. For extra control on oily skin we offer oil absorbing stones, which is ground clay from the earth that quickly absorbs excess oil. This products can be used a primer before applying our foundation or after. It is great to carry around and use as a touch up throughout the day.
Q. How accurate are the colors of the products represented on the website?
A. We strive to achieve a true-color match for all colors displayed. But in reality colors can never be identical to shade and hue, due to various factors such as lighting, variances in computer monitors etc. While all colors are as close to the actual product some may vary due to the reasons above. We know this is a major concern when purchasing products sight unseen, and try to make the process easier by offering samples. As of now we offer samples of our foundations as those are the most important colors to match to the skin. Being that we took the time to create a wonderful complementary product for ethnic women, our colors are extremely versatile. Believe me you won’t be disappointed with whatever shade/colors you buy. They truly are amazing.
