Poreless Perfection with Ellana Minerals

Just a quick trivia to everyone.. My first beauty post ever, way back in April 2008 was all about Ellana Minerals (You can look for it on my search engine at the sidebar). I can still remember the MMU (Mineral Makeup Craze) back then. Mineral makeup was the talk of the town,, err primarily by female girltalkers. Mineral makeup was even sold in teaspoon (1/8, 1/4, 1/2 tsp.) and they came in a handy dandy plastic zip locks. Yehess,, parang droga lang ang peg ng mga epektos. haha Ellana Minerals was the first local mineral makeup brand. It was the very first mineral makeup that I tried and I have to admit that I fell in love with the brand. I love their HD powder that mattifies even the slightest oiliness that it touches. One of their best sellers has got to be the full coverage foundation that I would often use as a concealer because of its superb pigmentation. Despite my love for this brand, I would always wish that they come out with pressed mineral products! As the saying goes, wishes do come true.
Ellana recently had a launch. I call this "the comeback". Hihi 

Here is a quick press info from Ellana Minerals:
In 2006, two friends wondered: where could they find makeup 
gentle enough for sensitive skin but strong enough 
to withstand the tropics?
 The only solution was to create it, 
and Ellana Minerals was born. 

The name Ellana is derived from the Greek
 word for “bright”- a fitting name for makeup 
that gives skin a luminescent quality. 
Each sweep of powder and pat of color conjures the 
vision of a goddess radiating with light, possessing a
 beauty that withstands the test of time. 

They will be having pressed minerals which I am very excited about. 
Another thing to fall in love with Ellana Minerals is their new packaging. It looks so sleek and stylish. The lady behind these illustrations is Soleil Ignacio, a top freelance fashion illustrator.

What is great about Ellana Minerals?
*High cosmetic grade
*free from unnecessary fillers, binders, and fragrance
*free from unhealthy nano particles 

** I must add this -- Ellana Minerals are very economical to use. A little goes a long way, one pot can last for more than a year (especially the HD Powder).
