My New Favorite Natural Foundation: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Healthy Foundation

by Suzana Rose

May 22, 2018

You know how much I love green beauty, but I also like foundations that offer great coverage. This is why I was very excited to try the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Healthy Foundation! It promises full coverage (the highest of all their foundations) as well as a matte finish.

Spread the word.

Before I start my review, let me preface it by saying that I've been wearing this foundation for over a month, and it's currently my go-to. I personally love it and gravitate towards it, but be sure to read my full review to see if it's the right foundation for you!

At A Glance

  • Brand: 100% Pure
  • Animal Testing Policy: Cruelty-Free, Leaping Bunny-certified
  • Parent Company: N/A
  • Product: Fruit Pigmented Healthy Foundation in Creme
  • Vegan: Yes
  • Price: $45
  • Weight: 1oz
  • Where To Buy: 100PercentPure.com
  • The Product

    100% Pure offer multiple foundations (including a tinted moisturizer and a BB cream if you need less coverage) in several finishes and with different degrees of coverage.

    The Fruit Pigmented Healthy Foundation claims to have a matte finish, which is accurate. The foundation looks completely matte on the skin, so if you're looking for something dewy, this one isn't for you.

    It also claims to be a full coverage foundation. I would describe this foundation as "medium to full". It covers redness and most imperfections, but you might need concealer if you have a lot of redness or blemishes. The coverage is nonetheless very good.

    This foundation also has physical sun protection of SPF 20. The formula also claims to be "enriched with antioxidants".

    100% Pure is a green beauty brand and their products are natural with some organic ingredients. This is a huge plus for me, especially for products like foundations, which are applied all over the face and sink into the skin!

    Shade Selection

    This foundation comes in 9 shades. I have the shade Creme, which isn't the fairest, but it's yellow-toned. It's a tad too dark if you're on the pale side, but it works. The lightest shade is lighter but pink-toned.

    Here's a chart to help you with the shade selection:

    Application & Wear

    The consistency is on the thicker side, and the foundation does come with a pump. I need 2 pumps to cover my whole face. With a beauty blender, this foundation applies flawlessly and doesn't emphasize texture or dryness.

    If you have normal to dry skin, this foundation will be long-wearing on you. However if you're oily, it might start breaking down throughout the day. I have combination skin and my nose is on the oily side, and this foundation doesn't stay put all day on my nose, even with powder. On me, it starts to fade around the 6-hour mark.

    Bottom Line: 4.5/5

    This foundation is a total win if you're looking for something non-toxic, high-coverage, and matte. I have to emphasize the "matte" aspect since it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's a truly great foundation if that's what you're looking for.

    It's the highest-coverage natural (as in non-toxic) foundation I've found, and also hands down the best one I've tried. It performs like a regular mainstream foundation, but it's not loaded with chemicals you can't pronounce!

    If you're looking for a matte, medium to full coverage foundation that's natural, cruelty-free, and vegan, this one might just be your holy grail.

    You can buy it here from 100% Pure.

      Hi there! I am a new blog reader and so happy I found you:-) I have recently started to really pay attention to natural, cruelty free brands. It’s important to be kind to my skin and body as well as my fur babies. I was using NARS Sheer Glow and loved it! I stopped using NARS because they are owned by Shisheido who does test (corrrect me if I am wrong). I also wanted to go more natural. I started using Omiana and I LOVE it! They are Talc, Mica and Titanoum Dioxide free. I have the foundation and eyeliner. The foundation goes on smoothly and doesn’t cling to my dry patches. NARS sometimes showed my dryer areas, usually as the day wore on. Omiana is a matte finish that covers my red blotches (I have mild Rosacea). The best part is that I e-mailed Omiana for help picking out a foundation shade. I told them the NARS foundation shade I was currently wearing and they matched me perfectly. I am fair skinned with red undertones and I wear Shell. You should check it out!

        Thanks so much for your kind words! A Canadian post is a great idea. Some cruelty-free brands that are available in Canada include Annabelle, Marcelle, essence and GOSH. I hope that helps!

    • It’s nice to see a green beauty foundation that’s both matte and that comes in deeper shades. I’m always on the hunt for new finishes.!

    • hi suzi! i’ve been hearing that smashbox doesn’t sell in china anymore, is that true? (hope so- i’ve had my eye on that lipstick lilly singh created for a while lol)

      • Suzi says:

        Yes, they pulled out of China a while ago and they also stopped testing on animals where required by law. Do it! 😀

    • Megan Hughes says:

      I look forward to trying this one. The best I have found for my less-than-cooperative skin has been Urban Decay’s Naked Skin foundation, which is cruelty-free/vegan but has a very long list of ingredients.

    • milena says:

      Another brand I wanted to try for absolute ages! Cruelty-free for the win 😀

    • Melodie says:

      This sounds like a great foundation, unfortunately i prefer a dewy finish but i’m gonna check out that brand that i didn’t know actually. Thanks for that review! xo

    • Rosie says:

      I bought this a couple of months ago and while I love the coverage it provides, it is really clinging to my dry patches. To the point I can’t wear it because it looks ridiculous. I’m trying to get my dry patches under control so I can wear it again.
