Original Indian Earth
I had quit using makeup as I got into my 60's & 70's until I came across this product on your site. I remembered it from many years ago and thought I would try it again. So glad I did! I had forgotten that it works on any skin type or tone to add just the natural color that your skin seems to loose as you age. It does not cake or clog in the pores or lines on your skin and just gives you a natural glow.

I have been using Indian Earth for over 30 years. It gives my face a natural glow and I even use it for eye make-up. It is best to tip the bottle so that the powder coats the cork and work from the cork to get the right amount of Indian Earth powder onto your face. I highly recommend this product for anyone who does not want the look of heavy make up. It does work well as a blush over make up as well.

Not What I Remember
I was so excited when I saw you were selling this product. I had used it, happily, for many years and was sorry when they discontinued manufacture. However, what I received was a product that was much darker in color, coarser in texture and sold at three times the price of the former product for a third of the volume. Altogether unsatisfying. I will not reorder. In addition, you do not have the rest of the product line - the eye shadows and the cheek blushers.

Original Indian Earth is TERRIFIC
I used this product in the late 60's early 70's during my "hippie days" when I wanted a natural look. I am now in my mid 60s and still love this. I was excited to see this in your catalog and ordered it right away. I was not disappointed. This is perfect for summer and I love the way it gives a very natural look. Thank you for carrying these "old fashioned" products that outlast the times. Next I want to try the tangee lipstick!

Just will not go on smoothly...
I was so excited to see that I could find an old product that I thought would be good for contouring with a slight use for a blush. It is a very dark color and you sure don't use but a tiny amount...but it just won't go on smoothly. It seems to "grab" at the skin and won't give just the light touch of indian earth color that is in the bottle. I purchased another item at the same time (Tangee Lipstick) that I haven't seen since my childhood and I'm thrilled to have it! Everything it ever was!

Lots of makeup for the money!
The Papoose Collection by Indian Earth a simple way to apply makeup. It comes in it's own plastic box, with instructions and the powder puff and the small crock. It holds a larger amount of powder than I expected. A little of the ingredients can last for years! I'm very satisfied with it. I will recommend it to everyone! Thank you for stocking a very good product, at a reasonable price.

FOUND--a product from my teen years.
I grew up in a very conservative christian family/community. Make-up was very much frowned on. I am really unsure how I came to find the Indian Earth but it gave my very fair skin just a little bit of glow -- and nobody even suspected it was applied!! When I saw this product in your catalog I was delighted. Now in my 70's it gives just a nice healthy glow without looking like a mask. I love it. Thank you.

Wonderful & Versatile product from Mother Earth!
I've wanted to try this product for a long time, but felt intimidated about application and color...This stuff is great! I've read ladies had trouble controlling the amount..It's true, a little goes a long way. Use the bottom of the cork, dabbing it onto a cotton ball. Then take your cotton ball and dab it onto the big puff provided, then dab and swirl that gently on cheeks. eyelids, and even lips as a base for lipstick or alone. I will never be without this unique powder..Don't worry about the color. I have very fair skin, blends beautifully!
