MeLange Mineral makeup is simply the most natural cosmetic product you can apply to your skin.
"Mineral makeup" is inorganic pigments that are finely milled and purified, then treated or coated with other pigments to create different colors and effects. Some mineral pigments are matte, some have a slight shimmer, and some absolutely sparkle! We take combinations of these natural colored minerals, and micro-blended them to make every one of our color cosmetics, from mineral foundation, mineral eyeshadow, mineral blush, and mineral eyeliner.
MeLange Mineral Makeup delivers excellent coverage, a healthy radiant glow and a flawless finish.
We guarantee that each product in our cosmetic line will be consistent in color, coverage and quality.
MeLange Minerals do not contain Bismuth Oxychloride, an ingredient that is used heavily by most mineral makeup companies, which gives most mineral products that “shiny/glowy” look and can cause minor skin and eye irritation.
Our mineral makeup line will give you a soft focus appearance, from our light reflecting ingredients, to help minimize the appearance of pores and wrinkles, without the shine or irritation!
The benefits of using MeLange Mineral Cosmetics are:
Natural looking and soft skin~~
Our customers tell us how thrilled they are with the look and feel of our products. Mineral foundation looks and feels natural, without sacrificing coverage. It smoothes and evens out skin tone, giving you the look of flawless skin.
Gentle enough for sensitive skin~~
Mineral cosmetics are great for sensitive skin! Synthetic color dyes, chemicals and preservatives are the reasons behind most skin sensitivities and allergies. Our loose mineral makeup contains none of these.
Stays on all day long~~
Mineral pigment particles are very small, and adhere well to clean, moisturized skin.
Oil and fragrance free~~
None of our loose powder mineral cosmetics contain oils or fragrances.
Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide offer natural, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection.
Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide have anti-inflammatory properties and actually help calm the skin. Zinc oxide is also an antimicrobial. Dermatologists routinely recommend mineral makeup to patients who have had laser treatments, micro-dermabrasion, peels, plastic surgery or acne problems.
With no oils, fragrances, fillers, chemicals or synthetic ingredients, mineral powders will not clog your pores.
Do you always have trouble finding a foundation shade that matches your skin tone? If so, you will love mineral cosmetics! All of our color cosmetics can be mixed to create something new. See Tips and Tricks under “MeLange Information.”
No harmful chemical preservatives~~
Because mineral powders are inorganic products and contain no moisture, bacteria do not grow and no preservatives are needed. However, we at MeLange are always thinking ahead!! For those among us mineral lovers who do not clean their application brushes on a regular basis, we have added a 100% natural preservative, Grapefruit Seed Extract. This will help control cross transfer contamination from your brush, to your skin to your jar of minerals! Please read, “Cleaning your brushes” under FAQ’s!
Each time you apply your MeLange Minerals, you are making a healthy choice for your skin!
Q: I need a foundation that provides great coverage, does MeLange Mineral Powder cover well?
A: Yes, our powder foundations will cover a multitude of issues, blemishes, scars, age spots and redness. We also offer the Conceal~It, for areas that need a little extra coverage.
Q: How do you apply mineral foundations?
A: The application of mineral foundations is very easy. Simply shake some of the minerals into the lid of our jar, work the minerals into your Kabuki brush by swirling your brush (the minerals should look like a light dusting on your brush), and buff the minerals onto your face using both stroke and circular movements to ensure complete coverage and dispersal of the minerals.
Q: Mineral powders look shiny after I apply them, why is that?
A: Most mineral cosmetics contain an ingredient called Bismuth Oxychloride. This ingredient is what causes most mineral powders to produce shine. It is called a pearlescent powder that provides a soft silky texture to a product, but also gives you a shiny/glowy appearance. Some people are sensitive to this ingredient and it can cause itching and eye irritation.
We do not use Bismuth Oxychloride in our products. Instead, we use a very fine non-shiny sericite. This gives our product a nice silky texture without the shine or irritation!
Q: Do I need to use The Finish finishing powder to set my foundation?
A: Although The Finish product minimizes pores, gives your mineral foundation a super matte finish, helps absorb excess oil and blends all of your cosmetic colors, you do not have to use it. It all depends on what you want your finished look to be.
Q: Does MeLange minerals contain any SPF?
A: All mineral makeup that contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide some protection from the sun. Under FDA guidelines however, we cannot indicate the specific level of sun protection of our products without expensive testing.
Q: I have dry skin, can I wear mineral make-up even though it is a dry product?
A: If you have dry skin, as always ,you will want to use a good moisturizer. Just apply your moisturizer and allow it to penetrate the skin, this should only take a few seconds, then apply your minerals.
