Faerie Organics Foundation and Blush

This was my first purchase with Faerie Organics and I have to share. I bought Medium Beige and Medium Golden Foundation, and True Blush and "Sun Kiss" Bronzer/Blush. I am a fan of mineral foundations and of natural products that come without planet-harming chemicals. Today I went with the Beige foundation and True Blush and was absolutely pleased with the soft finish. I had my choice of Airbrushed or Maximum Coverage; I chose the former. They are right, a little goes a long way. I used a very small amount with a light touch and the coverage is perfect. I can't wait to experiment with other products they carry.

The foundations offered come in a wide range of colors and you are certain to find a few options that will suit absolutely any skin color. There is also a White Mix Color "Adjuster" that you could use to tweak your choice, if necessary. And take a look at their bountiful lineup of blushes! This was harder to settle upon than which would be the best foundation match. Their colors are gorgeous.

Speaking of Color - they have two categories of eyeshadows. While I am more of a "au natural" girl and can't see going for the high pigment option, personally, there were a vast number of choices to tempt me among their regular eyeshadows and shimmers.

Additionally, Faeire Organics offers a very unusual service - foundation combo samples for a penny plus shipping! They come with 2 foundations (in any finish), sun goddess faux tan and sheer veil. What's not to love?

On a heart of servanthood note: I was surprised to find that they'd sent me two of each of my foundations. In the note they sent, they explained that they were out of the size I ordered, so they'd sent me two of the smaller containers - a full 10 gm more. Also, when I wrote and informed them that they'd accidentally sent me the wrong item color bronzer, they responded right away telling me to keep it and they would send me the one I'd ordered in the first place.

I look forward to trying more of their good-for-me-and-you products in the future! Five butterfly kisses to Faerie Organics!


  1. Cool. I love mineral foundations. I like bare esscentuals, tried the avon version but have not been happy with it. How does it compare to other brands?

  2. I just tested Bare Esscentuals and thought it was a bit too heavy, if you know what I mean. I used Raw Minerals and liked them, just thought I'd try something else this time. It feels like nothing is on my skin, but I just love the appearance. The foundation is light and air-brushed looking, and I simply LOVE the blush I chose. I'm using a bit of the bronzer as well to add a bit of sun-kissed color. And I use so little of each. I hope this company stays in business because I am very pleased with all I've tried so far. Let me know if you try it too!

  3. I just got the "Sun Kiss" bronzer/blush and I love it. What else do you suppose was in my package? Two samples - one of the "BEEHAVE" cleanser, and one of the Cleansing Grains. The first is wonderful, a bit more moisturizing than my usual cleanser. I think it would make a perfect cool weather cleanser for my skin type (combo prone to a bit of dryness). I haven't used the grains yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I am very pleased.

  4. Mary Kay has mineral foundation and it rocks! All their eye shadows and blush are mineral powder, as well.
