Purely You Minerals {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I was really into showchoir in high school.  We would have competitions against other schools (in a very Glee-like fashion) weekly during showchoir season, and were always trying to place better than the week before.  One competition we convinced the boys in our group to wear a little guy-liner and foundation, and we won our first Grand Champion!  With our medals and our trophy as tall as I am, of course we girls attributed it to the makeup.  They even made t-shirts that said “Real Men Wear Makeup”, and I think they let us spruce them up every competition after that.  Makeup really does do wonders!  It can win Grand Champion trophies and it can really enhance your appearance and boost your self-esteem!


Lately, I’m really in to mineral makeup.  I don’t know why or how I kept using liquid foundation for so long.  Mineral makeup just feels so much healthier, so light, and so real.  I had the opportunity to try out Purely You Minerals, and I’m pleased as punch with their line of beautiful colors and products.


These products were formulated by a busy stay-at-home-mom who worked tirelessly for 4 years to create the best formula of makeup that is natural, effective, and still designed with integrity.


Purely You Minerals sent me a few samples to test out.  I’m so glad they also sent me a few things I hadn’t requested, because some of them turned out to be my favorites!  In this picture from top to bottom are: Peachy, Satin Plum, Warm Fair Foundation, Haze, Translucent Light Silk Veil (which is awesome, by the way), Electric Blue, and Neutral Light Foundation.  Ochre lip gloss.

Everything feels very light and I never feel “caked” throughout the day.  All of Purely You’s products are made in small batches to maintain high quality standards, and they don’t contain any talc, powdered starches, clays, or parabens, and are always gluten free.  Hopefully this eliminates many possibilities of potential allergies for those with very sensitive skin.PURLELY+YOU+MINERALS+Compact

One of the really neat things that Purely You can do is a Custom Compact (starting at $5), which you can fill with four of your favorites and have your top ‘go-to’s in one place.  You can mix and match your favorites and only tote around what you’re actually using.  It also means you could have your blush, bronzer, and eye shadows all in one compact.  Speaking of eye shadows, Purely You has some super dreamy ones.  Check out these gorgeous colors:

And one lucky winner is going to get to pick their own full-size eye shadow!

I would wear all of these.  Even the electric blue!  I didn’t request to try this one out, but it was sent anyways, so I gave it a shot, and I don’t hate it!  If you’re interested in making the change to mineral makeup, I recommend starting at Purely You and trying a few things out.  Their products are super affordable and I’m nothing but pleased with them.
