OpenBox | 100% PURE Cosmetics




As any makeup lover would tell you, one reason that we are so drawn to beauty products is the wonderful spectrum of colours that light up our faces and our moods. Before the advent of mass produced synthetic dyes, colours came directly from the earth in the form of fruits and mineral pigments.


100% PURE is a beauty company that brings back these natural ingredients, fuses them with modern formulations to create antioxidant rich, healthy and synergistic products for your everyday life. I had the pleasure of sampling three items from their colour cosmetics line and filmed an unboxing video to share some first impressions.



A closer look at the products in detail and also their ingredients. These products certainly do not skimp on design, each item is packaged in their own cardboard casing like a little gift.

On the skin, these colours were not shy at all and all swatched easily with good pigmentation and smoothness. The lip glaze was especially exciting for it's rich colour and slightly moist finish which gave a fresh look when worn like a stain. I'm wearing all the three 100% products in my makeup look below.

Along with colour cosmetics, 100% Pure also carries an extensive line of everyday products for skin, hair, body and even a category for kids. Gift sets and gift cards are also available as well as shipping to multiple international locations.
With a few free standing stores already in California, I hope that the line will continue to grow while preserving it's authenticity and integrity to natural ingredients. Personally, it was a great surprise to discover that natural dyes and pigments can be just as fun and colourful as the other options in my drawers.
