Today I am very excited to bring you a review on a new brand of products that I was able to try for the first time. As I have mentioned before, I have been using mineral makeup for a while now. I love how it feels on my face and how it looks after applying. I'm always looking for new brands to try and this one is a home run!
What They Say: Just FAB Cosmetics offers all natural mineral makeup. You will NOT find any Bismuth, Talc, Chemicals, Oils, Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Preservatives, Parabens, or Additive in the makeup. Everything Just FAB offers is Eco-Friendly, Hypoallergenic, will not expire and because it's a dry powder you do not have to worry about bacteria.
Everything is handmade. There are NO unnecessary and skin irritating fillers in this makeup. Titanium Dioxide, Zinc, and so on are considered fillers. Basically if it's not Mica or Iron Oxide it's a filler. Fillers are used for adding adhesion, slip, and coverage to your makeup.
The "Just FAB Cosmetics" product line currently offers foundation, eye shadow/liner, blush, bronzer, mineral veil, highlighter/illuminizer, concealer/color corrector, eye primer, setting spray, and more to come!
My Impression: I was so pleased to be able to try this makeup. I'm always looking for more ways to remove the chemicals from products I use and replace them with more natural versions.
Just FAB Cosmetics' products don't contain any of those additives found in a lot of popular cosmetics. I was also pleased to learn that the
Just FAB Cosmetics' foundation does not have any Bismuth, you know, the stuff responsible for giving you that "glow" that some other mineral makeup includes? Well, for me that "glow" always looked "oily". In addition, Bismuth has been known to cause irritations in some people with sensitive skin. I have since learned to look for makeup that doesn't include Bismuth. Another great thing I love about the
Just FAB Cosmetics' products is that you can get them in three different sizes, sample, medium, and large. So, if you aren't sure if you are going to like the color or the product you can get a sample size and try it out.
Now, all through my teens and even into my twenties I had clear skin and NEVER had a problem with acne but somehow when I hit my thirties everything changed. For the past couple of years I have been getting acne on a pretty regular basis at least a couple of times a month. So, I am constantly looking for ways to cover the acne and acne scars. That's where
Just FAB Cosmetics' Green Concealer/Color Corrector comes in.
This stuff does a great job at masking those unsightly acne scars but be careful because a little of this stuff goes a long way. If you make a mistake and put it on too thick you might be walking around with little green spots on your face-- I swear I didn't do that...anyway, moving on...
Because I'm super pale I chose the very lightest shade for my foundation- porcelain.
Now, I must tell you that even some of the fair foundations in other brands have been too dark for my skin. Yes, I'm actually that pale, at least during the winter anyway. My skin gets slightly darker during the summer months but just barely because I usually wear sunscreen on my face to keep my skin from burning. I have had a problem with foundations looking orange on my face no matter how light I go for as long as I can remember. The good news is that the
Just FAB Cosmetics' porcelain is about as light as you can go. In fact, its perfect for my wintertime skin color but I may need to move up to the next shade for summer which I believe is Babydoll.
I have a confession to make, I don't always use eye shadow primer but I can tell you it sure makes a difference when you do! Using just a little bit of primer helps to adhere the eye shadow to your skin as well as helps to bring out the color of the shadow.
