As a mother and a trainer’s wife with limited “me” time, products in my makeup kit need to be long-lasting and color true to hold up against the hours of errands, meetings, horse shows and travel my life course often sees. Plus, when it’s time to just be a Mommy, I like natural ingredients and minerals that protect me from the sun, rejuvenate my skin and give me a natural look.

When I first came across Cowgirl Dirt, their fresh new products had all of this plus, they spoke to my character. And with cheeky product names (they seriously have a lipstick called “Hollywood Dun It”), I couldn’t resist.

For those who know me, I am particularly picky about my eye shadow. I need a product that will glide on smooth without a “cakey” or creased look and hold the style no matter what the day might throw at me.

Cowgirl Dirt’s new pressed powder comes in complementary dual tones, which makes their already fantastic product even better. On meeting days, I like to use the Arena Sand as a base, which creates a perfect foundation for an application of Barnwood on my eyelids. Then using a contoured brush, I like to sweep another light dusting of Barnwood into my creases in small circular motions. Both colors in this combo are demi-mattes.

On days when I’m after just a quick, simple and natural glow (you know, for the grocery store and running-into-town errands with my kids,) a smooth application of Arena Sand alone does the trick.

But for any of you ladies who ride regularly like I do, the real question is…

How do these eyeshadows hold up after a hot afternoon of riding around in arena dirt, atop a sweaty cow pony?

Well! I can happily attest that after the last couple of hot summer days I emerged from the arena looking exactly as I did walking in. You know, other than the big smile on my face! (A fast-paced, high-torque workout on the pro-cutter will do that to ya <grin>).

The colors didn’t fade away despite dust or sweat.


The other exciting aspect about Cowgirl Dirt is that all products have the following characteristics:

• Non-Allergenic and Gluten free: perfect for roseacea, acne-prone, and sensitive skin.
• Sun Resistant: contains ingredients with natural properties to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
• Anti-Inflammatory: contains ingredients that calm irritated and sensitive skin.
• Concentrated: only small amounts of products are needed for beautiful results.
• Natural: contains no toxic chemical, artificial preservative, dyes, nano particles, talc, or parabens.

And if you have sensitive skin, Cowgirl Dirt products are 100% natural and organic! You can review a full ingredient list by reading this.
