Many of my readers, friends, and family tell me the reasons why they are skeptical about switching from mainstream body care and makeup products to the safer alternatives. There seem to be three reasons and they are:
1. They don’t know too much about what ingredients exactly to avoid in the mainstream products and how these mainstream products are harmful.
2. They don’t know what products can act as excellent alternatives to their everyday body care and makeup products. They feel comfortable with the products they are using and feel uneasy about going out of their comfort zone.
3. They all think non-toxic, organic, and mineral product cost a ton and are not willing to pay that much.
I try to resolve these three main issues on Kajal (kajalreviews.com) as much as I can through reviews and blogposts. I will try to put a solution forth for problem 2 and 3 by introducing an excellent company to you all today. The company’s name is “Just Pure Minerals” – they specialize in vegan mineral makeup production. They sell mineral foundation, concealer and corrector, veil, blush, bronzer, lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss, eye liner, and eye shadow.
Just Pure Minerals is a small business that produces vegan mineral cosmetics that are safe for your skin and health. They do not use any harmful chemicals or toxins in any of their products. According to them, “At Just Pure Minerals all of our products our 100% handcrafted, in our shop you will find 100% vegan makeup & skin care made with the natural and organic ingredients and pure essential oils.” They focus on creating vegan makeup, which I love! Vegan makeup is great, because it is almost always non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and very gentle on skin. I have never known anyone that had their skin irritated from using vegan makeup. Quoting from their Esty shop, “Each and every raw material we use to handcraft our products with is researched to insure that they are free from artificial fragrances, animal by-products (carmine, musk), bismuth oxychloride, phthalates, sulfates, talc, parabens, nano particles, FD&C dyes and have never been used in any animal testing.”
They conduct their business through their Etsy shop and their own website. The web links are as follows:

Online Shop: http://justpureminerals.com/
I personally like using their Etsy shop, because I find it easy to browse and I like the shipment method. However, sometimes it is easier to visit their online shop to get a better sense of various products’ colors and compare them to each other.
Apart from offering great mineral makeup, they are also offer impeccable customer service. I use the “Contact” button on Etsy to communicate with them in case I have any questions or comments and I always receive prompt replies. My orders from them were always fulfilled in a very timely fashion and I did not have to wait too long to receive them either.
As mentioned above, Just Pure Minerals produce mineral foundation, concealer and corrector, veil, blush, bronzer, lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss, eye liner, and eye shadow. One thing that I appreciate about their foundations is that there are only 8 shades to choose from – I find that to be simple, especially while shopping online. It isn’t easy to pick a foundation shade from just seeing photos of shades online, but having fewer choices help to narrow one’s choices down. The have only 2 concealers and 2 corrector shades to choose from, which is also very simple. They offer only 3 mineral veils and 3 setting powders as well – they keep the choices straightforward and that is very helpful!
Just Pure Minerals have a wonderful range of neutral and fun shades of eye shadows and eye liners. They have both pink and peachy blushes as well as 3 great shades of bronzers – they are all very pretty and fun to work with. Lastly, they have some of the most amazing lip gloss and lipstick I have ever used. The formulae are great and the shades are simply beautiful. You’ll have to try and see for yourself!
I have used products from a fair number of companies to be able to say that Just Pure Minerals’ product formulae are great. They seem to use high quality ingredients, thus their products are of high quality as well. I have personally used a few of their products and they really do enhance a girl’s beauty. You can find my reviews of some of these products here:
Judging from my own experience, I would say that it is worth your while to give this company a try – you may or may not like all their products, but I strongly believe you will like at least some of them. All of their products are great alternatives to the mainstream makeup products that you may be using right now. If you have any specific questions about finding an alternative, simply send me a tweet @kajalreviews – I’ll be glad to help.
All of Just Pure Minerals’ products are very fairly priced in my opinion. Their samples are very affordable, for example: 4 of their mineral vegan samples cost $2 with FREE shipment! You can sample their lip glosses for just $1 with FREE shipment! That is very helpful for first time buyers, because they can sample and find out whether or not they want to buy a full size product.
The full size products are also priced correctly – $9/lipstick and $16/foundation are great buys.
My Two Cents
I have been as well-detailed and informative as I can be about Just Pure Minerals. I have found a company that puts forth great, reliable, and non-toxic products for you. I find that these products fulfill my needs and hope that they will be helpful for you as well. If you have any questions about this company, their products, or anything else, shoot me a tweet @kajalreviews and you will receive your answer in a snap! If you have used some of their products, feel free to leave reviews for others!
