Fruity Beauty

Kermit was spot on — it isn't easy being green. But, it is important for the planet and for our health.

Recently I made the switch to "clean" cosmetics. They can be a bit tricky to find (and more expensive), but I've loved everything. My newest acquisition — cheek tint from 100 Percent Pure. This company uses fruit extracts in its products. Get aload of the ingredient list for the Sugar Plum cheek tint: fruit Pigments of plum, pomegranate, red wine, cranberry, strawberry, blackberry and raspberry, Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), shea butter, grapeseed oil, cocoa butter, honey beeswax, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), natural strawberry flavor.

I'd spread that on my toast.

The tint — which smells as lusciously berry-ish as you'd imagine — smears on fairly sheer and leaves a nice flush, on lips, too. I'm anxious to try more.

How does it last? Is it pretty durable for the day? It sounds good enough to eat!

DF - I was pleasantly surprised to see that the tint DID last all day. I still had the same nice flush at 6 p.m. that I did at 6 a.m. I wasn't sure what to expect from all-natural stuff. But, when you think about it, pomegranates are natural and they leave a killer, long-lasting stain.

i loooove 100% pure. it's where i go whenever i need a little gift, or to stock up on make-up and lotion. their super yummy products really are 100% pure, chemical free and often 100% organic. so you can rest assured you aren't slathering on anything that's going to give you cancer. yes, i really am that paranoid.

my favorites are the body cremes, which really moisturize. i go through a bottle every winter for my hands. i'm also a big fan of their mascara. make with cocoa instead of tar, it washes off easily and doesn't destroy your lashes in the process. and i guess you could eat it if you wanted to.

the store is cute and clean and the girl behind the counter is always sweet and helpful. the only thing i'm not a super big fan of is how they give their samples. in little metal packs that you tear open like your ketchup. those are not so biodegradable. but maybe they are workin on that.
