Featuring Mineral Magic Cosmetics

Kellie, the owner of Mineral Magic on Etsy says, "I take great pride in my makeup line and guarantee 100% satisfaction. Mineral makeup is pure, crushed minerals from the earth, that improves your skin condition. it provides an SPF (sun protection factor) of up to 20, depending on how much you apply. It is an anti- inflamatory for your skin, as well. My makeup does NOT contain bismuth oxychloride, which is kin to arsenic, and is most likely the reason for skin irritation. Since these minerals are 100% pure, bacteria cannot be supported. Therefore, there is no expiration date. There is virtually no allergy risk.

You can use mineral makeup as a foundation, eye shadow, custom lip color and even nail color!For eyes: Use ANY color mineral and apply with a good quality bristle brush.For Lips: Use any color that compliments your skin. Mix and match your colors if you wish. Take a lip balm and dip it into the minerals and apply it to your lips for your own custom lip color.For nails: Mix the color of your choosing and mix well with your favorite clear top coat and apply!"

This is cool. You get to custom order your own portable makeup kit (as shown in the above photo). This is a handy purse-sized mini travel case for your makeup. It will hold your jars of makeup and brushes. The material is a microfiber that is easily washable. You will receive this case FULL of four, 3 Gram Jar size vegan mineral colors. AND brushes!

Kellie is married with one child and living in Pennsylvania. She is a graduate of Rutgers University and also holds a license in cosmetology. Close to her heart is the condition of Autism, as her son, Timmy, age 9, is autistic. Timmy is working now to help mom in her shop and has a few products of his own.

A scented soap on a rope that comes with a scrubbee and a pink or orange colored bowl (you select). The fragrance of the soap is Creme Brulee, scented and hand colored by Timmy.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), "Autism is characterized by three distinctive behaviors. Autistic children have difficulties with social interaction, display problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and exhibit repetitive behaviors or narrow, obsessive interests. These behaviors can range in impact from mild to disabling. Autism varies widely in its severity and symptoms and may go unrecognized, especially in mildly affected children or when more debilitating handicaps mask it. Scientists aren’t certain what causes autism, but it’s likely that both genetics and environment play a role.
Is there any treatment?

There is no cure for autism. Therapies and behavioral interventions are designed to remedy specific symptoms and can bring about substantial improvement. The ideal treatment plan coordinates therapies and interventions that target the core symptoms of autism: impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and obsessive or repetitive routines and interests. Most professionals agree that the earlier the intervention, the better. . . The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts research in its laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and also supports additional research through grants to major medical institutions across the country."

You will have your choice of any mineral colors that you would wear as blush to try before you move up to the larger sizes!

The picture shown is just an idea of some of the many muti-use colors that can be used as eye shadow/blush/lip and nail polish. 3 color choices in 3 gram jar size, NOT sprinkles in baggies. Mini Kabuki Brush! Dual applicator! 1 goof-proof instruction sheet!

I love that this makeup can actually be beneficial to your skin. I also love the idea of making your own kit just to suit yourself.

I also love that Kellie is so devoted to the cause of increasing Autism awareness and helping and encouraging Timmie to achieve his very best.
