Makeup that Makes (Perfect) Sense

Assembling the ideal makeup palette for one’s own skin tone, eye color, and personality is vexing enough . (Perhaps that’s why those smartly-smocked faux cosmetic scientists prowling the aisles of department stores are so effective in persuading/commanding us to let them experiment on us.) Throw in the qualifier of using only makeup that’s proven organic, natural, and pore-friendly, and suddenly the challenge of being properly made up for a day’s socializing reaches the level of quantum mechanics. Hope, however, is not lost. Thanks to the forward-thinking of Kate of Luire Mineral Cosmetics, it’s no pipe dream to imagine dipping one’s fingers into a makeup that’s mineral-based, meaning it’s actually therapeutic for the skin, while at the same time enjoying the confidence that comes from choosing a truly stylish and cleverly formulated product.

Engineered by a Missouri-based cosmetic craftmatician (not a real word), Luire is firstly well-marketed, distinguishing its bold yet complex eye colors with a-luire-ing names such as Shrinking Violet and Wishful Thinking, and appealing to our senses with fluidly poetic descriptions of each product. Secondly, however, and more importantly, these lovely little pockets of makeup magic are energized with hues that work to bring out the best in all of us. Whether your personality is Belly Dancer or Slow Burn, Fool’s Gold or Midori (my personal favorite), chances are you’ll find at least one tone that’s quintessentially you in this beautiful and unpretentious collection. You'll all be excited to enter this giveaway! Luire is kindgly giving away Four 5g jars of Peony Petal, Silver Sea, Under the Bridge and Lilypad, plus a full-size tube of Garden Party Gloss, all giftwrapped in a pretty silk bag. (A $25 value.) To qualify, visit Luire Mineral Cosmetics, then come back here to tell us about your favorite product. Tell us in a second post if you happen to subscribe to Wishing Willow, since our subscribers receive an extra entry in the contest. To post without a Google account, just click “anonymous.” Be sure to also leave your email address. The winner will be chosen randomly. Contest ends 12/10/08.

**We have a winner. Congrats janetfaye!**
