I promised you, dear ladies that I will come back with the 2nd part of Pure Anada presentation, where I want to show you some of their makeup products that I find very nice! At the first glance,¬†I was mostly attracted by their pressed mineral products. You know, that I’m always in search of these kind of products among green brands. But I ended up to like even some other products that I didn’t expected. Here is the review of my favourite products ūüôā

Pressed powders in all shapes plus a gorgeous palette!

I love the fact that Candace, the owner of Pure Anada, has added in the collection this handy palette called Pro magnetic compact, where you can store all your pressed powders! Here is the picture with my products (one pot of the powders has broken, in case you are wondering what’s that ūüôā )

Pure Anada make-up

As you can see from the picture, I have stored inside 5 pressed eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 3 mineral powders. If you want to store separately the products, you can put inside 6 powders (the biggest one; 60mm diameter), 6 blushes + space for small eyeshadows. If you want to store only eyeshadows there is space for 24 of them.

Pure Anada pressed makeup

All Pure Anada pressed powders are sold separately in carton¬†“envelopes” and so you can choose the product you want and put it in your palette. Among ¬†pressed products I love the most Pure anada¬†blushes¬†I have 2 of them; Strawberry field (left) and¬†Sweet Pea (right). The first one is a medium¬†pink suitable for all skin types because it liven up¬†your face, the Sweet Pea is an earth rose warm shade, perfect for a subtle natural nude effect.

On the picture I have added also the lovely Deluxe blush brush that you can easily use for applying blush or even pressed powders if you want a light effect.

Here is the list with ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), Iron Oxides (CI 77492, CI 77499) Calcium Carbonate, Caprylic Triglyceride *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba seed oil) Ultramarines (CI 77007), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) * Certified Organic Ingredient

Pure anada Pressed powder Sheer Matte Foundation comes in 5 shades. I have 3 of them. On the picture above you can see on top the Light shade and bottom left Very fair and right bottom Deep. As you can see the light shade is quite dark, so I recommend to try a shade lighter than you would. For instance I have light skin (not fair) but the right shade for me was Very fair. The texture of those powders is quite silky and gives a smooth finish. But if your skin is very dry, use a lot of moisturiser underneath and then spritz after with toner. Otherwise, for very dry skin I recommend to use the tinted moisturiser instead. The powder is easy to use and you can apply it with a brush by sweeping it in circular motions on the face.

Pure anada pressed eyeshadows¬†I have just a few colours and I like them! The texture is soft and silky, not too dry nor too creamy. They have 20 pressed shades in matte and demi-matte finish. On the picture you can see: Whisper (demi-matte vanilla), Breeze (demi-matte blue), Meadow (demi-matte green), Dove (matte light grey), Onyx (dark semi-matte black grey). Another tip for the eyes that I personally love is to mix Whisper and on top I put the blush Strawberry field which gives¬†a feeling of freshness on the eyes. The colours blend easily, are nicely pigmented and don’t crease! Here are some suggestions for your summer makeup:

Pure Anada lip makeup

I have tried 2 Pure Anada¬†lipsticks: Petal and Bordeaux Cherry. I find their package¬†amazing, so luxurious! Packed in a silvered bullet with the vintage logo PA. Both colours are pearly and I like them because are wearable and not too shiny. But I’d love to see also matte versions of lipsticks. Petal is a “day make-up” lipstick and is a light¬†rosy bronze. While the second one is a deep pearly warm red with a hint of brown. I also tried one lipgloss called Icy pink, which is very moisturising and pearly too. The lipsticks are very wearable, they have a good staying power and pigmentation. Sometimes I find them a little bit dry, which is weird because they have so many oils.

Lipstick INCI: Ricinus Communis (Organic Castor Seed Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic, cold pressed Jojoba Seed Oil), Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit (Unrefined, Organic, Shea Butter), Limnanthes Alba (Organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Mica, Iron Oxides, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus Tangerina (Organic Tangerine Essential Oil)

Pure anada¬†Loose eyeshadow pigments are one of my favourite products from this brand. Here are a few of them, as you can see they are highly pigmented! They have a huge selection of matte and luminous shades to choose from. They can be compared to professional pigments. Add sparkle to your eye makeup ūüôā

My new discovery: Pure Anada

Finally, finally I’m here with this review that waited for so long in my draft box! I say it because I really wanted to try¬†in depth¬†this Canadian brand that I discovered a few months ago and that I now regularly use many of their products (the mascara is almost dry ūüôā ups, I shouldn’t say¬†it ūüôā It was such a good discovery and a positive, unexpected surprise! And now here I am to share my love with you.


My favorite trio from Pure Anada

Pure Anada review

I’m going to start with my favorite trio of products that have amazed me so much, especially at that time in winter when my skin was so dry that nothing was good enough. And I couldn’t believe the great result when I tried this combination of 2 products mixed together: Pure Anada¬†Berry & Bouquet Hydra Cream¬†+ ¬†Pure anada¬†Tinted moisturiser. The cream¬†is a very hydrating one but¬†quite light in texture. It comes in a 60ml bottle with pump which is not just beautiful but also very hygienic. This cream is based on Rose hydrosol and aloe vera to hydrate the skin, natural vegetable oils of sunflower, argan and shea butter that give the skin lots of moisture but without being too oily! Plus it’s loaded with 2 beneficial ingredients: strawberry fruit and hibiscus extract that reverse the signs of ageing,¬†tones and tightens pores. The cream has a very delicate gentle scent of rose and although there is in their collection another cream for sensitive skin, this one is suitable for it too. And you need it just a pump or two for the entire face, which means it lasts for quite a long time.¬†In their huge skincare range¬†Pure Anada has 3 moisturisers for different skin types.

Ingredients: Aqua, Rose Damascena (Rose hydrosol), *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) oil, *Argania Spinosa (Argan) oil, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry Fruit), *Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract,   Leuconostoc/Aloe barbadensis Leaf/ Sorbus Aucuparia Fruit Ferment Filtrate (Preservative)

Pure Anada Tinted moisturizer

is packed in the same 60ml airless pump bottle as the cream and it has almost no smell. This tinted moisturiser is sheer but covering enough to even the skin tone. The result is absolutely visible, it’s not heavy like a mask or too invisible. It gives the perfect, modern coverage where your skin breathes and it has a natural, glowing appearance. It’s not greasy but moisturising. For me that I used to have really dry, even flakey skin on some areas I needed both products: the cream and the tinted moisturiser and together they gave me the dreamy finish. But for normally dry skin it’s enough even the tinted moisturiser on its own. Above you can see the swatch of very fair tinted moisturiser. I have noticed that when applied out of the bottle it’s much darker than it’s supposed to be, but I don’t know for what reason when applied to the skin it perfectly matches my skin tone. So at the end I was very pleased with the result.¬†In their wide collection of different foundations they have 4 shades of tinted moisturisers.

Pure Anada mascara

Pure Anada

I LOVE THIS MASCARA! Is the first thing I can say. As you know it’s quite hard to find a natural mascara that would give you volume and would make¬†your lashes long. Well, here it is! Especially the wand is very good, because it’s differently curved, if compared to other mascaras, which is crucial. In practice it means that it lengthens the lashes, while curving them and adding volume at the same time! It comes in black and brown color and it’s vegan (reformulated in 2013). You can read here¬†many useful additional informations regarding this great mascara. I find quite hard to describe mascaras because one should try it. And this one is really all to try!


Additional love: Pure Anada Marine mineral toner

As you already know I’m a huge fan of toners and mists and this time is not an exception ūüôā Pure Anada toner is great for all skin types to¬†refresh the skin and/or for setting your make-up (not just mineral one!). I have the small, travel version of 50ml and it’s a must-have not just for dry skin, but even now in hot summer days it will feel¬†great in your bag ūüôā Below you can see the super clean list with ingredients. What is additionally great is that it doesn’t have any special scent.

Pure Anada

Ingredients: Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Ascophyllum Nodosum (Organic Kelp) Extract, Aphanizomenon Flos Aquae (Organic Blue Green Algae) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Salix nigra (Black Willowbark) Extract, Sodium Chloride (Dead Sea Salt), Citric Acid


But I haven’t finished here with the review, hehe ūüôā I have lots of other products to show you and review from this great brand. This was just a foretaste ūüôā Next time I will come back with colours…Huhu, stay tuned!
