Welcome to Mineralicious! Makeup!
Chelle Barnett is the owner and mixologist behind Mineralicious! The company is actually a by-product of her own search for a makeup that would be good to my face and not make her skin conditions worse. She has suffered from rosacea and acne all of her life and traditional commercial cosmetics would really do a number on her face! While they are hardly life threatening conditions, the redness and breakouts were horrible for her self esteem. For years she tried every thing she could find to try to hide the redness. Commercial makeup formulations did little to mask the redness, and sometimes made it worse.
After researching mineral makeup and its ingredients, she decided to formulate her own after trying a few brands that made her face itch. As she began formulating with the ingredients found in most popular mineral makeup brands, she discovered that the itching was caused by bismuth oxychloride and decided then that none of her makeup would contain that. Cornstarch, talc, parabens and carmine are also ingredients you won’t find in her ingredients listing….not necessarily because those ingredients are bad, some of them didn’t give the ‘feel’ that she wanted.
After months of formulating and experimenting to see what ingredients worked together best, the Mineralicious! brand was born and went into the testing phase. After making it through her own facial testing, it was released to the tester team. The final result is now sold on the Mineralicious! Makeup website, which debuted on August 1st, 2008.
Even though the company is experiencing huge growth, you will find that all of our products are made in house and will continue to be...none of it is purchased wholesale and repackaged. I have extremely high standards of quality and I want to know exactly what is in every product we sell. Making it all herself gives another advantage as well...since she does make everything, she offers a Custom Color Match service for all of our customers & can blend up the perfect match to whatever color you need!
I invite you to give our products a try and see what makes Mineralicious! different!
