It’s not often that a cosmetic brand comes along that can check-off about every criteria on the list of “Perfect Cosmetic Companies,” but Concrete Minerals Cosmetics does it: 100% vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, made in the USA, preservative free and filler free. And they where recently Leaping Bunny certified. Almost sounds too good, to be true, right?
To make things even better, their collection of richly-pigmented colors in an eye-popping array of colors is enough to leave any makeup lover clamoring for every product.
Concrete Minerals offers 4 main lines of color:
Mineral Eyeshadow – their line of mineral shadows that are free of parabens and fillers, and offers a huge array of color options, from very tame (such as their pale pink shadow called “Prude”) to outrageous (such as their electric pink shadow called “¡Viva los Muertos!”). The shadows carry a nice shimmer, and some are opaque duos; colors with a shimmer in an another color.
Pro Matte Eyeshadows – if you’re looking for something with less shimmer, Concrete Minerals offers this line of matte shadows that are just as stunning and vibrant as the mineral eyeshadows. These shadows are built on a deluxe base that adheres to the eye for a look that lasts all day, or all night.
Lip Tints – when summer comes, we often say goodbye (temporarily) to thick, bold lipsticks, and welcome the sheer, subtle lip tints. Concrete Minerals offers a lip tint that is the perfect combination of moisturizing, light and colorful. Some lip tints seem to offer barely a kiss of color pay-off, and you end up feeling like you just paid for glorified lip balm. Concrete Minerals Lip Tints offer a beautiful sheer look in 14 different shades. With ingredients such as organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic jojoba oil and vitamin E, these beautiful colors will also keep your lips soft and nourished.
Nail Color – for your vegan and cruelty free nail needs, Concrete Minerals has you covered! Fourteen colors from subtle to bold are sure to have something for everyone. These nail colors are free of the nasty chemicals found in most commercial nail polishes: Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde & Formaldehyde Resin.
