Jenulence Blush Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have been using my new blush, Currant that Jenulence picked out for me awhile now and I love the color! When I first heard the name Currant I thought immediately of a reddish color (like a reddish lipstick) and was worried that it would look hideous. Well, as you can see from the above picture, it is not red but a darker pink. The thing with mineral blush is to go lightly. Just because it looks dark in the little pot they sent, does not mean that is the color you get on your cheeks.

I start off by barely getting any of it on the Kubuki brush and lightly sweep it across my cheeks and forehead and around the chin area to give it a more uniformed look but to also highlight the areas that I think need hiding. I also will lightly run the brush down the middle of my nose and when you do that it looks like a healthy glow and I have alot of people who will ask how I stay so fresh looking. I tell them it's the mineral makeup. It is an older woman's best friend! Jenulence strives to make sure your look comes off looking natural and glowing.
Now that I have had more time to use the Currant Blush it has become one of my favorites to use when I need just a touch of extra color in my otherwise pale face. I am naturally pale and if I don't wear anything, alot of people will stop me and ask me if I feel okay. I have gotten used to it but I sure do wish I was not born with such a pale looking face that I look sick all of the time! I am so glad that I found out about Mineral Makeup because it really has changed my life. I can add just a touch of foundation and blush and still look natural but not "sick looking"!

Oh, and don't fret, if you use bronzer instead of blush, they have those also. I love those too and use them alot in the winter, which I know is backwards, but I like looking natural in the winter, also, and nothing says natural like a bronzer! The one below is called Cool Light Tan and it would be the one I would use when it's time for me to order more bronzer.
Besides other makeup Jenulence also carries a line of skincare products that you ought to check out. I still have a good bit so when mine runs out I would like to experiment and see if mineral based skincare will help make your skin look even better. They also carry some men's products for your other half to try also. And my favorite part, they carry Bath & Body products also! Now, that is another thing I have not tried either. I still have alot to learn about mineral makeup and what makes it work and what makes it look like you signed up for a Halloween party! I hope you stop by Jenulence and see all the amazing products that they have.
These are their cleansers and masks and I would love to try them sometime also. I am a great believer in cleansers and oils. They also have an awesome sounding herbal clay mask. There are so many products to choose from I could probably spend 6 months or more just reviewing all of the wonderful products that they have in their shop.
I found this bit of information under the About Us section:
JenulenceTM, a small family owned company, was created in 2003 out of our love for all-natural and pure cosmetics and skin care products.

All our products are 100% natural. We understand that it is very important to use naturally prepared makeup and cosmetics and not to overburden the body with any extra load of toxic substances, especially now, when we are bombarded with all kinds of chemicals beginning with pesticides in our foods and a variety of pollutants in the air and water.
That is why you will not find any artificial ingredients in our products. All our products are environmentally friendly, biodegradable and they are never tested on animals. There are only food grade oils and aromatherapy grade essential oils that come from organic or wild sources in our skin care products. There are only pure cosmetic grade minerals and pigments in our mineral makeup. You will not find nano-particles, micronized minerals or FD&C, D&C or Aluminum Lake dyes in our cosmetics.

We understand that skin is a living, breathing and detoxifying organ, which absorbs a big portion of what we put on it. It has been calculated that over her lifetime the average woman can absorb as much as five pounds of different chemicals from cosmetic and skin care products. Every "Natural" or "Botanical" cream and skin lotion always contains synthetic preservatives, emulsifiers, solvents and artificial fragrances. All these ingredients could be damaging to our immune system and health.
