I'm almost ready to give up on makeup.
Someone please tell me if I understand the data gap on the cosmetic safety database correctly. I think a 95% data gap, for example, means that there is a huge amount of information that isn't known or is unavailable. So essentially, products with a 1 rating and a 95% data gap aren't necessarily safe. We just don't have enough information to know how safe/unsafe they really are.
So aside from that, it seems like most of the foundations with a 3 or lower rating on the website are mineral foundations. I've tried Everyday Minerals, Rejuva and something they sell at my local co-op (can't think of the brand right now). They made me look like I had on a really bad Halloween mask. Is there anyone else with this problem who found a mineral makeup that actually worked?
I will admit that I haven't looked at every single foundation on the website mainly because of my frustration with the data gap thing. But, it seems like almost all of the liquid foundations are tested on animals or have ingredients that are endocrine disruptors, which I'd really like to avoid.
I'm tempted to skip everyday makeup and use my current badly rated stuff for special occasions and client meetings (and wash it off as soon as I get home).
What do you do?
