Pure Anada make-up

I promised you, dear ladies that I will come back with the 2nd part of Pure Anada presentation, where I want to show you some of their makeup products that I find very nice! At the first glance, I was mostly attracted by their pressed mineral products. You know, that I’m always in search of these kind of products among green brands. But I ended up to like even some other products that I didn’t expected. Here is the review of my favourite products 🙂

Pressed powders in all shapes plus a gorgeous palette!

I love the fact that Candace, the owner of Pure Anada, has added in the collection this handy palette called Pro magnetic compact, where you can store all your pressed powders! Here is the picture with my products (one pot of the powders has broken, in case you are wondering what’s that 🙂 )

As you can see from the picture, I have stored inside 5 pressed eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 3 mineral powders. If you want to store separately the products, you can put inside 6 powders (the biggest one; 60mm diameter), 6 blushes + space for small eyeshadows. If you want to store only eyeshadows there is space for 24 of them.

Pure Anada pressed products

All Pure Anada pressed powders are sold separately in carton “envelopes” and so you can choose the product you want and put it in your palette. Among Pure Anada pressed products I love the most the blushes: I have 2 of them; Strawberry field (left) and Sweet Pea (right). The first one is a medium pink suitable for all skin types because it liven up your face, the Sweet Pea is an earth rose warm shade, perfect for a subtle natural nude effect.

On the picture I have added also the lovely Deluxe blush brush that you can easily use for applying blush or even pressed powders if you want a light effect.

Here is the list with ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), Iron Oxides (CI 77492, CI 77499) Calcium Carbonate, Caprylic Triglyceride *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba seed oil) Ultramarines (CI 77007), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) * Certified Organic Ingredient

Pressed powders called Sheer Matte Foundation come in 5 shades. I have 3 of them. On the picture above you can see on top the Light shade and bottom left Very fair and right bottom Deep. As you can see the light shade is quite dark, so I recommend to try a shade lighter than you would. For instance I have light skin (not fair) but the right shade for me was Very fair. The texture of those powders is quite silky and gives a smooth finish. But if your skin is very dry, use a lot of moisturiser underneath and then spritz after with toner. Otherwise, for very dry skin I recommend to use the tinted moisturiser instead. The powder is easy to use and you can apply it with a brush by sweeping it in circular motions on the face.

Pressed eyeshadows I have just a few colours and I like them! The texture is soft and silky, not too dry nor too creamy. They have 20 pressed shades in matte and demi-matte finish. On the picture you can see: Whisper (demi-matte vanilla), Breeze (demi-matte blue), Meadow (demi-matte green), Dove (matte light grey), Onyx (dark semi-matte black grey). Another tip for the eyes that I personally love is to mix Whisper and on top I put the blush Strawberry field which gives a feeling of freshness on the eyes. The colours blend easily, are nicely pigmented and don’t crease! Here are some suggestions for your summer makeup:

Pure Anada lips  I have tried 2 lipsticks from Pure Anada: Petal and Bordeaux Cherry. I find their package amazing, so luxurious! Packed in a silvered bullet with the vintage logo PA. Both colours are pearly and I like them because are wearable and not too shiny. But I’d love to see also matte versions of lipsticks. Petal is a “day make-up” lipstick and is a light rosy bronze. While the second one is a deep pearly warm red with a hint of brown. I also tried one lipgloss called Icy pink, which is very moisturising and pearly too. The lipsticks are very wearable, they have a good staying power and pigmentation. Sometimes I find them a little bit dry, which is weird because they have so many oils.

Lipstick Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Organic Castor Seed Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic, cold pressed Jojoba Seed Oil), Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit (Unrefined, Organic, Shea Butter), Limnanthes Alba (Organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Mica, Iron Oxides, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus Tangerina (Organic Tangerine Essential Oil)

Loose eyeshadow pigments are one of my favourite products from this brand. Here are a few of them, as you can see they are highly pigmented! They have a huge selection of matte and luminous shades to choose from. They can be compared to professional pigments. Add sparkle to your eye makeup 🙂

And the super clean list with Ingredients: Mica,  Iron Oxides, Ultramarines, May contain: Titanium Dioxide

  1. Hi I came across your blog and I love it! Maybe you could check out mine?

  2. Those lipstick colors look lovely! I just did a review on Pure Anada, the lipstick I got wasn’t for me but I’m hoping to try out others in the future. I am wondering if your pressed eyeshadows had a strange smell to them? Mine did and it really worried me at first! I thought that they were expired!

      Hi Amber! I will check asap your review too! No, my eyeshadows don’t smell strange. Thanks for stopping and sharing your thoughts!

    • Hi ladies! I was just taking a look at your review! Thanks, by the way!
      Just wanted to quickly comment regarding your concern, Amber. Our pressed powders are bound with jojoba oils. We also do not fragrance our pressed powders. Therefore sometimes they can have a musty smell. Rest assured, it’s not because they’ve gone off! You can leave your pressed powder compact open overnight to air out, and let the odor dissipate. Hope this helps! ~Kristen, professional makeup artist, Pure Anada~

    I haven’t tried this line but I am very impressed! The ability to buy what colors you like and create a custom palette is great. The eyeshadow colors are just what shades are needed for summer! I will be sure to try them out. thanks for posting
