Last April, I had a really awesome interview, review and giveaway with Ferro Cosmetics. It’s a 100% pure mineral makeup line that can easily boost that they use no fillers, is cruelty-free, and earth friendly. I loved it from the minute I tried it out, and always end up going back to it over the years. If you didn’t catch that review, you can see it here. I always hoped that I would find fellow fans out there, and out of nowhere, Tovah from HauteCurvyWomen.Com shared her Ferro love with me. In fact, she even offered to share her review of the mineral makeup brand on my blog. Thanks Tovah!

So, in the spirit of sharing our love for Ferro Cosmetics, I bring you……

Tovah’s Take on Ferro Cosmetics!

It was strictly by accident that I found the most wonderful mineral makeup I’ve ever used: Ferro Cosmetics.

Apparently, celebrities and makeup artists have been using Ferro for quite a while, yet I had never even heard of this brand before.

I had recently done a review on my first Beauty Box from www.totalbeauty.com, which, amongst other items, contained 2 samples of Ferro Mineral Blushes in the colors ‘Terra Cotta Mineral Blush X3’, which has an earthy look with gold undertones and ‘Suzie’s Glow Mineral Blush X3’, a color mixture of berries and peaches.

I really didn’t think I would ever use these samples as I was very happy with what I was already using and most minerals never really felt good on my skin.

So, a couple of weeks ago, I’m getting ready to go on vacation and I’m packing my regular makeup and, of course, I drop it, spilling most of it on the floor. Frantic, as I had no chance to order any more, I grabbed the two sample containers of Ferro and took them with me.

When I went to put the Terra Cotta on, I was afraid that it would have an orange cast to my skin. All I had was moisturizer on my face when I applied the color .

Oh my gosh! It was the most beautiful color I’d ever used. It just warmed up my complexion and evened out the blotches on my face instantly. I used it more as a bronzer than a blush. It’s definitely build able and feels like silk. It stayed put all day. I’ve tried it with different brushes and I’ve found the best to be a medium-sized blush brush.

While my skin is very sensitive and I had experienced trouble before with Mineral makeup, with Ferro I never felt any adverse effects or that dry feeling that I’ve gotten with other mineral brands. I even fell asleep with it on twice (I know, I know….Beauty Rule #1) and there were no adverse effects. Plus, this is 100% natural ingredients in 100% of the formulas.

I thought Suzie’s Glow was a highlighter and, thus didn’t understand why it just seemed to intensify the color I had on already. Luckily, I went to the Ferro website and realized it was a blush, not a highlighter. I saw the Glow Mineral Bronzers, which is what I’m going to try next.

I’m the type of person who reads reviews AFTER I buy a product.

When I came back from my vacation, I wanted to see what others had written about it and came upon the lovely Claudia from www.ilovetotalkalot.com, who had also given Ferro a wonderful review. I saw that she was looking for another reviewer for Ferro and I, of course, jumped on it.

So,

go to their website at www.ferrocosmetics.com. It’s a great, easy-to-navigate site. I love that they offer sampler packs for you to find the perfect formulation or color. These begin at $12.00.

Thanks Tovah for that awesome review! I also fell in love with the brand pretty quickly and so glad to meet others that know what great mineral makeup can do! Do we have any other mineral makeup lovers out there? Is there a particular Ferro Cosmetic product that has you swooning? I think the one thing I’m loving about my Ferro stuff at the moment is how long it lasts….a really, really long time!

If you have a Ferro Cosmetics review that you would like to share here just let me know! I’d love to have another guest reviewer! Want to hear more from Tovah? You can find her on twitter at: @hautecurvy

XOXO Lovelies!

One thought on “Tovah’s Take on Ferro Cosmetics!

  1. I’ve been wearing Ferro Cosmetics mineral makeup for about two weeks now. The cosmetics provided great coverage, although the radiance foundation was a tad too dark for me when I applied it with a flocked sponge. However, it was the perfect color when I applied it with a kabuki brush. Although most mineral makeup companies say to use a brush to apply mineral foundation, I use a flocked sponge so I can get more coverage, and I know a lot of other MMU lovers do as well. I really liked the fact that the Ferro Cosmetics jars came with instructions printed on the lid that said “Shake minerals here, swirl brush & tap of excess. Sweep on for fabulous coverage.” Although most beauty junkies know how to use mineral makeup, a lot of women don’t – so it’s nice to have the steps explained somewhere where you can’t forget them.
