This is a continuation of my review on Terra Firma Cosmetics. For the first half, click here.
After visiting Terra Firma Cosmetics store, I was impressed with the owner and the staff. They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I looked into what Meri, the owner, had told me about the http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ website. I checked the ingredients on several of her items against the listings on skin deep and found her products to be safe. Wanting to start changing my daughter, Marissa, over to safer makeup, I took her in for Terra Firma Cosmetics foundation and decided to try it for myself as well. Being unsure if a powder foundation would work on my skin, thinking that it might settle in the fine lines on my face or look dry, I thought it was at least worth a try since they would apply it in the store and I could see how it worked for my skin before making a choice.
Marissa was also a bit skeptical about powder foundation, but being able to try it out and see how it works makes the process painless – fun even, so I took her in to give it a try. Christine was working that day. She happily and patiently found the right color match first for Marissa and then for me. She knew exactly which foundation would work best for each of us, as they have three different varieties. She matched our foundation colors to our complexions and we were good to go. Christine does a terrific job and is a sweet young woman.
I’ve been using this foundation for two weeks now and like it so much I decided to try out more of their makeup. I went in and asked to try some colors. Meri and Christine were both there this time. They helped me find what worked for me. I bought a blush and an eye shadow and will be back for more.
It feels so much better using a product that is such high quality and is good for my skin. It feels light and natural, like I’m not wearing any makeup.
While there, Meri showed me how their powder foundation can easily be converted to a liquid using their eye makeup remover. She demonstrated how it works and I was amazed.
Buying from Terra Firma Cosmetics is a real joy. From Meri the owner, to her wonderful staff, they all have their customer’s best interests at heart. They work to find exactly the right shades for their customers and they obviously enjoy their work. It is a pleasure to visit their store.
Terra Firma Cosmetics are superior quality cosmetics. A little goes a long way and it looks like it will last a long time. They only use high quality, safe ingredients, many of which contain nutrients that nourish the skin for healing and optimal health. The cosmetics don’t feel heavy or caked on. They are light and natural feeling.
For such a high quality product, the prices are very reasonable, making these products an excellent value. The eye shadow colors are $8.99 and the loose mineral blush colors are $12.99 each. This makeup is on par with any high end makeup that you could purchase at a cosmetics counter at Macy’s or Nordstrom, but the ingredients are chosen not only to be beautiful and smooth, they are also chosen for their non-toxic ingredients. They use wholesome ingredients that I’m not afraid to put on my skin or that of my daughters.
When I started thinking about changing to non-toxic products I was concerned about the quality and the price, but Terra Firma Cosmetics has relieved my concerns. These are high quality, reasonably priced products that look and feel terrific on. I highly recommend them.
If you are concerned about finding the correct match for your skin, they offer an unheard of deal on-line. You can purchase a trial pack that includes your choice of shades that you would like to try, so you can find a good match for your skin. For $15.99, you get to try four foundation shades in your skin tone range, along with two blush colors and an airbrush finishing powder. This way you can try it out at home and decide which color works best for you, without having to spend even as much as the price of one full sized foundation. If you live in Western Washington or Northern Oregon, you could visit their shop in Olympia and have them match you right in the store for free. Click here for a link.
I don’t often find such excellent service with such exceptional products combined with outstanding value. I highly recommend Terra Firma Cosmetics.
