Angelberry Organics Review & Giveaway

In all of my research and education that I have done since my family has become "green," I have been shocked and horrified at the lackadaisical attitude of the government and of the cosmetics industry!  I have written a few articles about the lack of regulation in this industry as well as had discussions over at Villageofmoms.com in my "The Skin You're In" series.

One of the most chemical ridden beauty products that are currently sitting on the market, is that of makeup. Loaded with parabens, SLS and many far worse toxins, I must admit that it is the one thing that I have not been able to let go of yet (You really don't want to see me out and about without makeup!)  Even worse, I know that my makeup rubs off on Noah and it makes me cringe.

Enter Angelberry Organics.  Organic mineral makeup! O....M....G!


I was so very excited to have the opportunity to receive and review a makeup that would be healthy and non-toxic to myself and my skin!

I received an eyeliner, a blush and a lip gloss - some of my must-haves in a crisis!


The eyeliner is not a liquid, but a pencil, which I was very pleased with.  I tend to venture towards the pencils anyways, because I cannot do liquid and keep in straight on my eye!

The blush is a little bitty container, to eliminate wasteful packaging.  Much to my surprise, I only needed an extremely small amount to create the desired "blush" effect on my cheeks.  Great when you have to consider the money spent on makeup in the first place.

Finally, the lip gloss.  Probably a little too light for me, but the texture and the taste were great.  As with all lip glosses, they don't stay on for an extraordinarily long time, but overall I was pleased with the quality of product.


I actually worked a volunteer shift at a large children's consignment sale in Dallas today with the makeup on and was very happy that all but the lip gloss stayed on for the duration.  My face tends to eat my makeup, so that it stayed on for 5 hours is saying a lot!


I was so happy with the Angelberry Organics line and will probably continue to use it once my samples are finished since it is free of so many of the toxins that our conventional makeup contains.

Would you like to try an Angelberry Organics product?
