Pretty Naked Palette Launches 2006
Are you ready for a bit of beauty nostalgia slash mind blowing makeup fact? 100% PURE, along with Susie Wang, was the first to invent the Pretty Naked palette. We’ll wait while we let your mind explosion dust settle. It’s true. We were the first to the naked palette game, with our first launch of Pretty Naked Palette in 2006 – a whole four years before any other pretty naked palette came onto the beauty market. A makeup phenomenon was born right here in San Jose, CA and began to snowball across the world from there. We aren’t upset that this incredible trend caught on (and continues to be absolute fire), more like honored and humbled to be there at the inception of it all. Like our mothers always told us, copying is the most sincere form of flattery. Can you even imagine a beauty vanity without one of our many fruit pigmented makeup palettes?
After we launched the original Naked Palette, our product development team went back to work formulating our next big natural makeup palette launch. It might have seemed like an impossible feat, to top the original best-selling palette, but our talented team was up to the beauty challenge. Pretty Naked Palette II was dreamt up and officially launched on the 10th anniversary of the original makeup palette that started it all. Enter Pretty Naked Palette II. We flipped the palette world on its beautiful head with a bolder, day to night palette. Highlighting the classically flattering nudes and metallic tones that work on all skin tones, our latest makeup palette was a versatile must-have. Start with a soft metallic eye for the office and pump it up for after hours with highly pigmented, rich chocolate-y charcoal eyeshadows. Did we mention that we created our palettes with natural fruit pigments? Deep beautiful hues, directly from Mother Nature, the original beauty queen.
Now that we’ve covered the beginnings, let’s get down to the nitty gritty of each palette, with a full deep dive into the naked palette family. It’s grown to three, with our latest and greatest launch of Better Naked Palette. Fresh out of the wonderful brains of the 100% PURE product development team, we’re building out our cult-classic makeup palette collection. If you’re looking for makeup palette eye candy, then you’re in the right spot. Read more below about each makeup palette comparison with a deep dive into shade descriptions as well as swatches. Who says you can’t collect them all?

Makeup Palette Ingredient Comparison
We’re still in a beauty comparison mood, so we figured why not cover the actual ingredients in our natural makeup palettes versus what’s hiding in conventional makeup palettes. This part might be a little harder to swallow, certainly less eye candy, but nonetheless, one of the most important sections in this makeup palette breakdown. Have you ever flipped your makeup palette over to take a peek at the ingredient list on the back? Okay, maybe not, but does your makeup palette even list the full ingredients used to make that beauty wonder? If not, we’d pose the question…what are they hiding? We’re so proud of the healthy ingredients we use to formulate our makeup palettes we would never bury them out of sight; bright red strawberry powder, silky avocado butter, and flickering micas, just to name a few. Keep reading below to see what healthy ingredients we’ve swapped in for the common toxic ingredients in conventional makeup palettes.
Conventional Makeup: Talc
100% PURE Swap: Rice Powder
You might have been reading more and more about the dangers of talc in makeup, so why are conventional beauty brands still including this harmful powder? Talc is a powdered mineral that – depending on its source – can be laced with asbestos. Forgot all the guessing if the talc is “safe” or not and use a powder you know is harmless – like rice! We’ve taken this common dinner plate staple and finely ground it into a smooth, silky powder. Free of any toxic chemicals, rice powder is the perfect natural swap for any powdered beauty product, like our natural blushes and natural eyeshadows.
Conventional Makeup: Carmine
100% PURE Swap: Strawberries, Raspberries, Cranberries
All animals deserve protection, not just the adorable, tiny ones, so we’re shining a spotlight on the less than cute but just as deserving cochineal beetles. They might have the fuzzy factor going for them but it’s what’s inside their bodies that is most sought after. Conventional cosmetic companies are still formulating with this “natural” dye source, the bodies of crushed cochineal, also known as carmine. Described as the most perfect shade of highly pigmented red, we still can’t quite grasp how anyone can get over the pain and sadness it took to get it. Pain isn’t beauty, at least not in our books. Why not actually use natural source of gorgeous reds through our patented fruit pigmented technology using ripe strawberries, bright cranberries and a plethora of other fruits and veggies. Loaded with vitamins and healthy minerals, fruit pigments stand up to any makeup test of durability, opacity and wearability.
Conventional Makeup: Aluminium Powder, Tin Oxide
100% PURE Swap: Mica
Shine, sparkle, glimmer. We want it all! Flecks and specks, do you know what those little glimmer-y bits are made of? If it’s conventional makeup, most likely plastic, aluminum powder or tin oxide. Hmm…not as glamorous as you might have imagined. Luckily, 100% PURE sources their fine shimmery powder from natural mica rock.
Conventional Makeup: Polyurethane
100% PURE Swap: Avocado Butter
We’ve covered some of the ingredients that are in eyeshadows or blush but what’s actually holding the powders together? Magic? Gravity? Well, for 100% PURE powdered formulas, it’s rich, creamy avocado butter. This moisturizing agent is the perfect base to carry fruit pigments. Our silky, highly pigmented blushes and luminizers easily glide on your skin with the help of vitamin rich avo butter. Yum! Wouldn’t you rather have this natural ingredient instead of polyurethane? First off, it’s a copolymer, basically a everyday plastic that is also used in building insulation, car parts and composite wood panels…what!? Conventional makeup loves this synthetic, not to mention cheap, toxic ingredient because it holds their powders together and allows for smooth application.
