Frequently Asked Questions about Lust Minerals
Which foundation is longer lasting – Lust Stick foundation or Powder foundation?
Although both our foundations are long wearing and offer beautiful flawless coverage, our Powder Foundation will give a longer lasting coverage and feel fresh all day long.
No Boxes, Why?
Lust minerals believe we are environmentalists at heart which is why we have chosen to minimize our company’s carbon footprint by not wasting tree, this is why our luxury minerals come box free!
Do you use parabens?
Never! Parabens are a synthetic preservative and we only use a natural preservative in our formulations.
Are the foundations non comedogenic?
Yes. Our foundations allow the skin to breathe and do not clog pores.
Does your makeup contain Bismuth Oxychloride?
Absolutely not! Bismuth Oxychloride is a by product of refined lead and is used by many leading mineral makeup brands because it is a cheap filler. People who suffer from rosacea, acne or people with sensitive skin often find that this ingredient will irritate their skin. At Lust, we only use ingredients that benefit the and protect the skin.
I’ve heard Titanium Dioxide can be bad. What type of Titanium Dioxide do you use and is it safe to use?
We get asked this question often and there is no need for concern. The titanium dioxide used in Lust minerals consists of fine particles, however they are not small enough to penetrate into the skin and enter the blood stream. The nano-sized particles of Titanium dioxide is what the concern is about and we do not use that type of Titanium Dioxide.
Do your foundations offer sun protection?
Yes, all of Lusts foundations have a natural sunscreen. Our Powder foundation offers the highest protection and is rated SPF 15+.
