I'm so dissapointed!! I just found out Jane Iredale uses bismuth oxcychloride and dimethicone is their products!!

I am looking for a fun cosmetics line offering makeup without:

bismuth oxcychloride
dimethicone
parabens
propelyne glycol
etc...

Any recommendations?

I've seen LaurEss online, but I've never heard of them... anyone?http://www.lauress.com/index.asp

gottahaveitall, that's the reason I'm not a big JI fan--- I don't like all the fillers and other junk! There are LOTS of good all-natural makeup lines out there, but my fave by far is Alima. No fillers, no silicones, no preservatives--- they are so pure, they don't even used carmine (crushed beetles)! It's a really fun line too--- they send you 3 free samples to play with with each order, and right now they have a Valentine's Day special LE eye shadow kit that has 4 neutral shadows all named for delicious treats. My skin has really improved since I switched from regular make up too. HTH!

I'm waiting on an Alima package, and am currently sampling UGloGirl - which is GREAT! www.UGloGirl.com

I second Alima. Lauress is also a good line but more expensive and doesn't offer enough coverage for me.

Have you tried Dr Hauschka? The line is pretty simple but it's really great. I've been using it for years and love it. Smile

Nothing despicable, but I'm allergic to it. OK, technically I'm allergic to a preservative that is used in castor oil, but since I have no way of figuring out which castor contains the dreaded preservative, I avoid it all.

Thanks ladies!

I'm looking for a liquid foundation (MMU tends to be a bit drying during winter months)... any recommendations? (I've tried Dr. H and the lightest shade is too dark for me... Mad )

I had a look at Lauress and really wanted to give it a try too, but I couldn't figure out what shade to go for. I'm Alima W-2. Can you recommend a shade? Thanks!

Have you tried Lumiere? They carry liquid foundation.

Ecco Bella ! They have liquid foundations and its a natural cosmetics brand. You should have a look. You can see reviews of the foundation on Makeup Alley.

Dr. H is too dark for me too. Crying or Very sad I've never tried this myself, but I've heard that you can mix a little MMU powder into any moisturizer to make a good-for-your-skin tinted moisturizer. Has anyone here tried this? Also, recently I read over at MUA that one girl who uses Alima applies it wet with a damp sponge, so I've been experimenting with that recently just to see what the difference is. It seems that the coverage is more sheer, and you have to take more time blending (one reason I prefer to use it dry--- I love dusting it on and being out the door...), but it does seem to work a bit better for drier skin. I first dampen my sponge with Heritage Products rosewater and glycerin (it's like $3 or $4 at Whole Foods/Wild Oats) to give my skin a little more of a moisture boost. HOWEVER, be sure to tap some MMU on a plate or something before you do this--- never stick a damp sponge into your jar of MMU as this will contaminate it. HTH!

Thats too bad manslayer! Castor oil normally is hypoallergenic and is a good emollient. Could be the grade used or something. You're right though in saying you have no idea in knowing what the ingred could and how would you ever know.
