I was going through my makeup stash and realized that there were a few pieces I never shared. Swatches are always a life saver for me and I know that going the natural route can be confusing when finding a true color fit, especially when ordering online. I found a lot of light-skinned swatches that looked absolutely gorgeous on the girls but the colors would turn out much different on me and I was left disappointed.

Here are 3 shades of blushes from 100% Pure that I love:
I’ll show you how they look online and then how they look on my skin.
🌿Pretty Naked –
A tan nude that leaves you with a natural, healthy, looking glow… For reference, I used to use covergirl iced cappuccino and this is very similar to that except with much, much, much, MUCH cleaner ingredients. I adore the other colors I’m about to share but I always reach for this one first because I’m obsessed with the glow it gives me. Paired with the undereye concealer in peach bisque and I look rested, healthy, and sun-kissed.
A deep, bold mauve. The color pay-off is awesome so you only need a light hand to create a sultry flushed look. It’s true to the name, a purple hue and I like to wear this in the winter. This is comparable to covergirl’s iced plum. Again, without the toxic ingredients.
An innocent, flushed, tickle-me-pink. This color is beautiful and is my favorite to pair with a pink lip and sheer white eye shadow, or just when I want a soft and innocent look. Scroll to the bottom of this post for an example.
And again here from another angle:

WHY I LOVE THEM:
💛First, the quality.
You can’t beat this and I keep saying I’m going to try other blushes from other brands (like root pretty, juice beauty, vapour beauty, all companies I love and support) but although I love green beauty, I’m also a realist and recognize that I don’t NEED a zillion and one blushes to choose from. These ones are tried and true and if it ain’t broke, why fix it… They work so well, are gentle on my skin, last FOREVER and have awesome staying power. They are highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. I have never had a bad skin reaction to any one of their products, which is big for me since I have sensitive skin and have battled with skin conditions like Perioral Dermatitis.
This brand continues to blow my mind with their clean ingredients and I have learned to trust them so much. I wasn’t always into clean beauty, it truly wasn’t until my skin completely rejected drugstore and mainstream makeup after pregnancy that I quite literally had to scour the internet for hours to find and learn about high quality products that are not only non-toxic but effective. This was the first brand I found that worked very well and pleasantly surprised me…so I have a soft spot.
If you think you have a similar skin tone as me and would like advice with colors to choose from, or would like hear to about ones that I have tried but did not love, feel free to message me anytime. 😘
I am not an expert (No seriously, I don’t even know how to contour and am not that interested in learning) but I do believe in transparency and although I don’t want to spend the time it takes writing reviews about the products that didn’t work, I’d be happy to share my experiences with you.
Having said that, I will say that I have never been disappointed with any of the formulas. It’s only that color choosing hasn’t always been easy for me, so I’d be happy to help. Furthermore, the customer service and return policy with 100% Pure (and most green beauty companies for that matter) is phenomenal– one time they even gave me a refund but let me keep the product when I asked to make a return! There’s no harm in trying and I’m confident you’d find something you love.
