Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics
“I stopped at Longevity for a visit. I just wanted you to know that I am LOVING all the great items from Jane Iredale. And, when I come back in, I do want to buy the primer you suggested. Thanks so much for that tiny sample, it is amazing! The neck crème is incredible too. Again, I just LOVE all the items Christine sold me!- I was so impressed with Christine. Mainly, her knowledge for the makeup industry in general, but even then, she did such a great job knowing what I needed and selling me items I would love. She really made a great impression then, and she is still making a great impression now!”- Longevity Client

Mineral Makeup FAQ
Is the makeup safe for all skin types?
It’s important to know that anyone can be allergic or sensitive to anything. However, we have stopped providing the top three sensitizers from our makeup, synthetic fragrance, petroleum based colorants and synthetic preservatives. We’ve also tested every product for sensitivity on a 50-person test panel in a laboratory. Individuals with extreme chemical sensitivities wear our makeup successfully.
Is it SAFE to use it on acne-prone skin?
If you are under a doctor’s care for acne, ask them first. Otherwise, we feel confident that our makeup will not make acne-prone skin worse and may even help it. Our makeup is completely non-comedogenic and allows the skin to breathe and function normally. It also easily covers the redness common with eruptions. We have had many aestheticians report to us that they have seen an improvement in the skins of their clients since they have been using Jane Iredale.
Does Liquid Minerals have an SPF?
No, but it has ingredients such as Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin C that help to repair the cells suffering from UV damage. If you apply a layer of powdered minerals over Liquid Minerals, you are helping to repair and protect the skin.
What does the ‘water and perspiration proof’ rating mean?
Under the new FDA monograph, no manufacturer is allowed to claim a “water proof” rating. After the appropriate laboratory testing is completed, products may now say Water Resistant (80 minutes) or Water Resistant (40 minutes.)
If you are wearing our minerals and are perspiring heavily or swimming or you’ve been caught in the rain, don’t wipe your face with the towel – just pat it. You may remove a small amount of the minerals, but the majority will stay on the skin. If you are exercising in the sun, it would be wise to brush on another layer of minerals after you’ve dried you face.
Does jane iredale work on older or aging skin?
Yes. Because this is a light-reflective cosmetic, it obscures the look of fine lines and wrinkles and gives a healthy glow to the skin, making it look younger. Matte makeup absorbs light and allows the eye to see “into” the skin. On a very lined skin, after applying the minerals, it is helpful to spritz with our D2O, Balance or POMMISST hydration sprays. This sets the makeup, softens lines and gives a dewy look. The technique of spritzing the sponge first and applying the minerals as a wash also helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and large pores.
How soon can the makeup be applied after laser, microdermabrasion or peels?
The minerals can be applied immediately after a microdermabrasion or a light peel provided the skin has not been broken. They will not only cover the redness, but the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are known anti-inflammatories that will help to calm the inflammation. It is important to replace the stratum corneum that has been lost after these kinds of procedures. The stratum corneum is the body’s first defense against the sun.
Is the makeup easy to apply?
Yes! The problem that first-time wearers commonly encounter is that they apply too much. Because they are used to using makeup that has large amounts of filler and not a lot of “pay-off,” they use the same techniques when applying jane iredale. With minerals, less is more. Come in and see our makeup specialist for help with applying.
May I use jane iredale with Retin-A?
Yes. Our makeup can be used with any skin care regimen. The sunscreen protection our minerals provide is especially important while using Retin-A or AHAs.
Do men use jane iredale?
Yes. Because the minerals are undetectable, they feel comfortable wearing them. In fact, newscasters are now using the powders on high definition television because their old makeup was obvious to the television cameras.
