When I decided to do this product review for Just Pure Minerals, I wanted to be thorough, not only for the sake of the company but also for the G2N community. The first thing I did was go to their website to do some serious window-shopping. I quickly discovered that Just Pure Minerals fulfilled 2 out of 3 of my personal requirements for a cosmetic company. They use vegan, all natural ingredients and do not test the products on animals.
Next, I noticed their price point. It was well below the leading mineral makeup companies out there today. I, personally, have spent a small fortune in search of the perfect makeup for my aging, sun exposed skin and this company seems affordable in comparison.
Just Pure Minerals has quite the ingenious program going. “No Regrets” allows you to pick out samples of colors and shades you might like, and for a nominal fee, they send you about a weeks supply. The owner of this company started this program herself. It was like having the beauty counter experience in the convenience of your own home, but even better, because you get to try on as many colors as you want. Plus, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to package it up and send it back- it’s your sample!
Now, I’m really getting excited to test these products! It only needs one more quality to pass the three requirements: Does the product do what it claims? I wouldn’t’ know until I actually used the makeup on my face. Oh, the anticipation!
I quickly submitted my choices and waited to get my samples in the mail. The samples came in 2 days, which was surprising since they make these batches daily! The packaging went all over the floor and I immediately started experimenting with my samples.
My Just Pure Minerals Trial
Over the next couple of days, I tried out different looks. My first look was daytime and natural. The natural look is important because I wear it on a daily basis. It needs to look like I have no makeup on but that I still look flawless. Just Pure Minerals passed the natural look test with flying colors. I put it on in the morning and it lasted throughout the day. In the natural sunlight, you couldn’t tell I had any foundation on. The selection of foundations she sent me blended in with my skin tone flawlessly.
The second was a night look that involved a more heavily applied eye and lip, but it was still lighter than a red carpet look. Again, Just Pure Mineral fit the bill! It had staying power, the colors were vibrant and long lasting, and again I was satisfied with the overall look I created with their makeup. The final look I went for was my last true test of this makeup.
The final look I went for was my last true test of this makeup line. It was a celebrity, red carpet, look in Hollywood. In order to be red-carpet-camera-ready you must-have makeup that can last through hot lights, hugs, kisses, eating, drinking-It’s all so much! So, I layered my mineral make up for a full coverage look. Those bright lights require it. This look was the ultimate make it or break it for me. I left my house with confidence in my finished look. It was perfect, gorgeous, vibrant, and without being garish. We celebrated and partied the whole night through and the makeup did not wear off, not even from all the cheeks I kissed and brushed.

My Verdict For Just Pure Minerals
I ended up buying every single item I liked from the Just Pure Minerals site. The modest price point for this amazing line of makeup is hard to beat. I give it a 5 out of 5-star rating and will be a repeat, loyal customer.
Thank you, Just Pure Mineral for your social responsibility, your reasonable price point and you’re highly effective long-lasting makeup!
