Have you tried mineral makeup yet? I really hope you have. And if you haven’t, you really should!
Worried about the price? I’ve found that my jars of foundation last a really long time (several months). The coverage is also outstanding and breakouts just don’t happen with mineral makeup (I can only speak for myself on that matter, obviously). So the price is really quite reasonable when you consider how long it lasts and how good it looks.
Ok, you are thinking, you are right. I should give this stuff everyone talks about a go. Should I buy the stuff in the drugstores to save a few bucks? In my humble opinion, no. I personally found the coverage to be lacking, so I went through my drugstore brand much faster than I thought, which made it no longer the good deal I thought it would be.
Ok, Tiffany, so I guess I should go get Bare Minerals, right? You can if you like, but I’ve learned over the past year that there are a few other brands out there that offer products of the same quality as Bare Minerals, minus the super high pricing (Who do you think pays for all that advertising in the end? The customer!).
Today I bring you a fabulous find, Jenulence. From their site, “JenulenceTM mineral makeup is handcrafted using synthetic-free high quality natural minerals and cosmetic pigments. We do not use synthetic preservatives, talc, nano-particles or micronized minerals in our mineral makeup. It is water and sweat-resistant, hypoallergenic, doesn’t clog the pores, and delivers complete sun protection.” I love their motto: “If you can’t eat it, don’t use it on your skin!”
Jenulence offers an ingredient list for each of their products, and everything is just as natural as they claim, which is really awesome. When is the last time you could pronounce all the ingredients in your makeup?
For my review, I chose 2 products that I need most as a mom. I need to look put together really fast, and I need some help covering up my dark circles since I don’t get as much sleep as I need. Therefore, I selected the Pink Ginger Mineral Foundation Powder and the Under Eye Dark Circles Concealer.
First, I want to talk about the concealer. It goes on really smooth and brightens the skin under my eyes. I’ve noticed that when I wear it I have a brighter overall look. This is so ideal for those (many) days when I feel tired, and you can see evidence of my tiredness without some good makeup on! Thank you, Jenulence, for creating this product!
Second, I want to talk about the foundation powder. One of the things I like the most about Jenulence is the great range of colors they offer for their foundations. When I’ve ordered Bare Minerals products in the past, I’ve had to order 2 of their colors and combine them to achieve the right look. That equals more money, which is quite painful! Jenulence has the perfect shade for me, no blending required. Hooray! Pink Ginger is pale but still peachy, and it goes on really smoothly. My skin looks flawless in it, and I love to wear it. Check out all the shades they offer; you will be amazed!
I also really appreciate that Jenulence has all budgets in mind, so they offer their products in different sizes, depending on your needs and what you can afford to spend at the time of purchase (another big thank you from this girl who has to watch her pennies!).
Buy it!: Jenulence foundations start at just $1.00 for a trial bag, and go all the way up to $20.00 for the full size product. You’ve got nothing to lose by giving a few of their shades a try, and I bet you that you’ll love them just as much as I do, and go back for more!
