Mineral Fusion Mineral Makeup is Sweet
Step 1 - Mineral Fusion Liquid Mineral Foundation - $29.99
If there's one thing I can say about mineral makeup, it's GOOD FOR YOU! This foundation is gluten, cruelty, paraben, artificial color, fragrance, talc and phthalate free. It's also hypo-allergenic! There are 8 shades and I picked Olive 2 (which is second to last). So Mineral Fusion needs to work on offering more shade options for WOC. I REALLY like this foundation! I was a little worried when I poured it out (on my hand), that it would be too orange/yellow for my face, but as you can see it blended well. It's described as full coverage, however in my opinion it gives medium coverage (you can still see my freckles). I love how lightweight it is! It's not heavy, sticky, oily or greasy. It also blended effortlessly. You will still need a concealer (as you can see with my under-eye circles & such), unless you have really good skin. I'm more impressed with this foundation, than my Urban Decay One & Done! The coverage with this was more natural. It gave me a glow! My skin looked healthy! Plus, this foundation lasted all day! It definitely exceeded my expectations. The only thing I wish, is that it would come with a pump. Pouring gets messy. This is a nice everyday foundation. Bottom line: The formula is great, but Mineral Fusion needs to make a wider selection of shades available and rethink the bottled packaging (or offer a pump). I'm shown below, only with the liquid makeup on. No concealer. Click on pictures to make bigger.
Step 2 - Mineral Fusion SPF 30 Brush - On Sun Defense Powder - $24.99
A powder that protects you from the SUN? I had never heard of such a thing! Have you!?! I think it's ingenious. You guys know I can't go without sun protection! So how did this work? Really good! This is a transparent, mineral, sunscreen powder! One end holds the powder (unscrew the cap & shake the powder into the cap) and the other end is a brush, which to apply it (the brush is retractable). Very little goes a long way! You don't need much powder. This powder set my foundation really well. It took away any shine that I had (see above) and created a unified look. I ran errands and never experienced any adverse reaction to the sun. This will easily fit into your purse (make sure the cap is on good) or desk drawer at work. It makes reapplying very easy. The only negative I had is that some of the brush bristles fall out while applying. I think a shorter, fluffier brush would work better, but the quality of the product is excellent. Below, I'm wearing the liquid foundation above and this powder.
Step 3 (Final Result) - Mineral Fusion 3-In-1 Color Stick in Magnetic - $19.99
Cheeks. Eyes. Lips. This is a 3-in-1 color stick! This was the icing on the cake! I've had good cheek & lip tints. I've had bad ones. I'm happy to say this is a good one! They picked this color for me! Mineral Fusion how did you know I love purple? LOL This is called Magnetic and it looks like a raisin color. They describe it as a light bronze shimmer, but it has hints of purple. The color is soft & natural looking. It was moisturizing to my lips. I applied it to my cheeks & lips below. I didn't try my eyes. This really topped off my look. I loved how natural my entire face looked. This is offered in three other colors (Berry Glow, Rosette and Terra Cotta).
I am BEYOND impressed with Mineral Fusion! You guys have really made me change my thinking regarding mineral makeup. I once thought it was just not for me, but this has proven me wrong. Besides the little quirks above (packaging & offering more colors), the formula for their products are amazing. That's the only thing that kept them from getting a Supersweet rating. I will definitely purchase more of their products! They have foundations, concealers, bronzers, setting powders, primers, lip sticks, lip tints, lip gloss, cheek tints, eyeshadows, mascaras, hair care, nail care AND REALLY A FULL BEAUTY LINE! You can buy Mineral Fusion products on their website, Whole Foods, Amazon, Target, ULTA, dermstore and many other places. It gets my seal of approval! Thanks for letting me try your products. I definitely want to try more.
Excuse the plastering behind me. LOL Contractors will be painting this weekend.
