Premium-Grade Ingredients: Triple-Milled Mineral Makeup




“This is the best Pressed Base I've ever used. The coverage is phenomenal. You can use it for a light dusting or for heavier coverage by layering it on. Blends in well and gives your face a flawless look.” - Holly, online review


Reviews like this one from Holly truly mean the world to us because we believe everyone can feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.  Because of our commitment to using ultra-fine minerals and a triple-milled process, we can ensure that every application provides flawless, continuous coverage. But what exactly does triple-milled mean?


Triple milling is a process used to refine particles to the absolute optimal size so they lay better on the skin for superior coverage.


For example, think of how pebbles look in a glass jar compared to sand in a glass jar. The sand looks smoother and more refined than the pebbles. If you hold up a flashlight and try to shine it through each glass jar, you will see the light coming through the holes in the jar filled with pebbles while you are unlikely to see the light shining through the jar filled with sand. This is because light is able to penetrate through the gaps left by the pebbles (larger particles) and is not able to do so when the particles are smaller (sand).


This same principle holds true for makeup. Makeup that is triple-milled will lie more smoothly on the skin and will provide greater coverage than makeup with larger particles. At glo, we begin with the smallest particles available and then triple mill them to ensure that every time you put on our award-winning makeup, it provides even, continuous coverage that lasts!
