About Puzzle and Puzzle Makeup Products

 

How do I know what skin tone/color I have?

Skin's undertone is either warm, cool, or neutral. Here are some easy tips to discover your skin tone. Also if you will go to our foundation page you will find pictures and descriptions of people with different skin tones.

If you tan easily and do not burn:  

You are - warm undertone (most likely have a yellow-to-olive color)

If you burn or tan minimally or not at all:

You are - cooler undertone (pink, bluish-red, or ruddy)

If your skin tends to look somewhat ashen or gray, from the combination of the natural yellow undertone and the greenish shade

You have - Olive skin tone           

You may be somewhere in between neutral, cool to warm tones. Neutral skin tones are those with no obvious overtones of olive, yellow, or pink.

 

What if I have a condition like rosacea or acne?

Your skin’s undertone will be the same but you will have more red, pink and peach tones in some areas.

Our foundation is organic, it's still going to make your skin more even and have a nice cover even though it doesn't have heavy coverage. Most of the time people with rosacea or acne are looking for/using a foundation with really heavy coverage. That may cover some areas, but at the same time it's not allowing your skin underneath to breathe, which can cause more breakouts. If you want to have better skin—let it breathe.

 

What if I'm not comfortable sending my picture, can I still buy the custom-blended foundation?

Unfortunately, not at this time, but please feel free to look at our standard foundation and powder colors here.

 

What does talc and paraben free mean?

Parabens

Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetics. They are esters (a compound formed from acid and alcohol).

Companies use parabens to extend the shelf life of products and prevent growth of bacteria and fungi. But studies have shown that some parabens mimic hormones and have been found in some breast tumors.

Regardless of whether your makeup is mineral, organic, or has chemicals, the shelf life should not be more than two years unopened. And after you open your product—even if you didn't use it—you have 8 to 9 months to use it. After that, the bacteria and fungi will begin to grow in it.

We don’t believe in adding extra ingredients that might lead to harm when makeup should be used quickly anyway.

 

Talc

Cosmetics companies use talc as an absorbent, anti-caking agent and to improve the feel of the product, so they don't have to use more expensive ingredients.

Studies have shown that products that have talc in them can cause cancer.

Products without talc and paraben are safer, apply better, feel smoother, and stay longer on your skin.

If we can pay a little bit more to make sure that our product is safer for you to use, we say that you're worth it!

 

How long before Puzzle products expire? What is the shelf life?

The shelf life should not be more than two years unopened. After you open your product, even if you don't use it, you have 8 to 9 months to use it. After that, the bacteria and fungi will begin to grow in it.

 

How do I recycle my Puzzle products?

Our palettes have been created with recyclable paper that can be put in most recycle bins. Our palettes and products also use magnets to give you the ability to remove and replace individual products in the palette. We hope you can keep the palette boxes as long as possible and just swap out makeup to reduce plastic waste!
