Beginning with colourFLO mineral foundation, Susan has created a complete line of practical beauty—including multi-purpose face, lip, and eye products.

Why is mineral make-up better than traditional make up?
Mineral make-up, when in a loose form without fillers, is revolutionary. It contains no preservatives, emulsifiers-nothing that might aggravate the skin. It lets the skin breathe-thus it is the healthiest, most natural make-up one can put on her their skin. Susan chose to develop a mineral foundation, colourFLO, because there is NOTHING healthier or better for the skin. The better mineral products contain natural sun protection for the prevention of premature ageing and sun damage-colourFLO has one of the highest amounts of SPF on the market-SPF 26.
What makes Susan Posnick Cosmetics minerals different from other minerals on the market today?
Susan saw a need for a loose mineral foundation with a substantial SPF. She worked tirelessly to develop colourFLO, making sure the minerals in Susan Posnick Cosmetics are the most finely milled of all mineral products on the market. They are 100% all-natural and contain no fillers. Together with our luxurious self-dispensing, refillable brush, colourFLO provides the silkiest, most radiant finish possible. Because of Susan's background as a make up artist she wanted to make sure colourFLO is available in the most complete range of shades-there is a colour to match any skin tone!
What do each of the ingredients in colourFLO do?
9 NATURAL INGREDIENTS - THAT'S ALL
* Micronised titanium dioxide - A natural sunblock which reflects light so UVA rays cannot absorb into skin-the best covering and whitening pigment available to lighten and brighten the skin.
* Micronised zinc oxide - The best available sun protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
* Iron Oxides - Pure colour pigments derived from minerals, rocks and crystals-the base of most colour cosmetics.
* Boron Nitride - Acts as a natural emulsifier.
* Mica - Provides a natural glow to the skin - it is oil absorbing and derived from quartz and mineral crystals.
* Vitamin A - Is an Anti-oxidant with anti-ageing properties.
* Vitamin E - Prevents irritation from sun exposure, is a natural moisturiser, an anti-oxidant and assists in the prevention of sun damage.
* Bismuth Oxychloride - Contains oil-absorbing and anti-inflammatory properties.
* Superoxide Dismutase - A skin protector that fights the free radicals which break down the skin.
Is colourFLO good for all skin types?
colourFLO works on any and all ages and skin types-from babies with sensitive skin needing sun protection, to teenagers and working women on the go, to older women with ageing skin. Older women will find that colourFLO holds through hotflashes. Susan Posnick colourFLO contains no fillers or powders and will NOT settle into fine lines or wrinkles-unlike powder, it never looks dry. The minerals meld with the natural oils and the warmth of the skin to create a clean, natural finish-like a second skin. The best mineral make-up should make your skin look better, and you should not look like you're wearing makeup.
Can you use colourFLO after cosmetic surgery and dermatologic procedures?
We suggest you apply colourFLO immediately after all skin treatments to cover redness, provide sun protection, and nourish the skin with vitamins A and E. colourFLO will not clog pores or irritate sensitive skin.
colourFLO is a sunblock, not a sunscreen - what's the difference?
colourFLO contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide - the only two natural sunblocks available.
The difference between sunblock and sunscreen is quite simple. Sunblock is effective immediately. It is like pulling a shade down between you and the sun. colourFLO blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Sunscreen takes approximately 30 minutes to create a chemical interactive filter of the sun. It is like having a window screen between you and the sun-some harmful rays can still penetrate the skin.
How should I apply colourFLO for sun protection?
Think of your colourFLO as a foundation when you are applying to get maximum sun protection. Like any other physical sunblock, you need a substantial layer to block out the sun's harmful rays. Apply colourFLO in a circular motion and layer for stronger protection. For regular everyday protection, apply in the morning before going out in the sun and reapply as needed in the afternoon. A light dusting throughout the day can never hurt either!
How often should I reapply colourFLO after swimming or perspiring?
For constant sun exposure, like all sun protection, when at the beach or pool-reapply every 1 ½-2 hours for best protection. colourFLO is water-resistant and sweat-proof, but you should always reapply (using a circular motion) after swimming and/or strenuous outdoor activity. If colourFLO is rubbed with a towel, some will come off. If it is lightly patted with a towel, it will last.
What is the best way to dispense colourFLO?
To initially prep the brush-Click button at base of colourFLO 1-2 times before your first application to get the minerals flowing through the brush head. After the initial prep, there is no need to pump the brush again. For regular use, simply tap the brush across the meaty part of your palm 1-3 times until a small amount of minerals are visible in the brush.
When do you refill the brush and how do you know how much to refill? Is it possible to overfill the brush?
The colourFLO brush contains approximately 3 months worth of product based on everyday use (once or twice daily). You should only refill the colourFLO brush when it is empty, or near empty.
To refill, simply unscrew the base of the brush dispenser and pour powder from refill container into dispenser. Directions are found on the refill package.
Refill containers hold approximately the same amount of product as the original dispenser (though it may look like less due to settling).
colourFLO works on an air-flow system and should hold NO MORE than one refill in the barrel at a time. Too much mineral in the barrel can prevent the brush from working correctly.
Can colourFLO be used as a bronzer?
Susan Posnick offers a "bronzer," but depending on your skin tone, colourFLO in M8, M9, and M10 can also be used as bronzer to warm the skin.
How do you make your eye make-up last longer?
Apply a good coat of colourFLO to the eyelid as a base before applying liner and shadow.
After lining the eyes, top the liner with a light layer of shadow to "set" the liner.
How does the eye shadow in the colourEYEDEFINE pencil work?
The shadow is housed in the lid. To apply eye-shadow colour, twist off the cap to open and to pick up eye shadow colour. For more intense, twist cap over applicator repeatedly to pick up more colour, and reapply.
How do I keep a sharp angle on the colourEYEDEFINE pencil?
To sharpen angled liner:
Twist up 1/8", press on a clean tissue, and drag along a flat surface.
How do I keep my products and tools clean?
After using any Susan Posnick product, you can use a small amount of alcohol to sterilise. Just spray on a tissue and swipe the applicator or product across to disinfect.
