AVON vs MARY KAY MINERAL MAKEUP

My experiences - Still faithful to AVON'S Mineral Foundations and Blushes!


My daughter had me try Mary Kay's version, and all I did was sneeze while applying it! Plus it didn't give me near the "glow" or the "coverage" that the AVON one did. NO, I DONT HAVE ANY ALLERGIES, NOT EVEN ANY TO FOODS!

And according to "Environmental Working Group", "Talc" was HIGH on their list of worst ingredients in mineral makeup. MARY KAY IS LARGELY COMPRISED OF TALC, AVON CONTAINS ZERO TALC. NOW WONDER MARY KAY"S VERSION MADE ME SNEEZE!!

Thank you for allowing me to share!

EDITOR'S NOTES:

I think this is the first time we have had a review for Avon. I always include ingredient lists when a new makeup is mentioned. Below are the ingredients for Smooth Minerals from the Avon website.

While this product might work great we have had many other mineral makeups mentioned on this site that contain simpler lists of natural ingredients that are safer and they work beautifully. Just check out some of the other reviews.

Mary Kay Loose and Press Powder, Mineral Eye color and cheek color

This is great especially during the summer when I don't like to wear alot of makeup. Also if I'm in a hurry I quickly brush on the loose powder all over and it still gives me that even complexion coverage. I love the eye shadow and cheek color. Fade-resistant, and long lasting! Love it!

EDITOR'S NOTES:

I'd like to include an ingredient list for Mary Kay products as I have for other mineral makeup but have not had any luck finding them on-line on an official Mary Kay site. Personally I won't shop with a company that does post their ingredients in a easy to find place for all to read.

It is easy to find info on their policy against animal testing, their code of ethics and social responsibility. Why not their ingredients?
