Review: Mineral Fusion Cosmetics*

Hi Ladies,
Today I am going to share with you some products by Mineral Fusion Cosmetics. For those of you unfamiliar with Mineral Fusion, it is a company who is committed to protecting the enviornment, using natural ingredients, and giving back to the commuinity. Their products are products are environmentally friendly, cruelty free,  free of gluten, parabens, SLS, phthalates, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances. Their product's are made from mineral, such as magnesium, copper and zinc, which also provide antioxidant defense against damaging free radicals.  The products are said to help improve your complexion while nourishing your skin. All Mineral Fusion products are made in the USA and many are hand made. Their product packaging is made from recycled materials. Lastly, They are also partnered with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence to help raise awareness.

Sounds like an awesome company right?

On to the products:

 Blush in Smashing and Flashy $21.99 
Smashing is a rosy pink that I think has a hint of purple in it. Harmony is a coral pink. Both colors have great pigmentation. They are more on the matte side. I did notice a bit of fall out in the pan when picking up color with my brush but it has to do with the fact that they are so creamy. I really liked these blushes.

Eyeshadow Trios in Imagine and Diversity  $24.99 

I was very impressed when I swatched these trios. All the colors are creamy and very pigmented.

Imagine contains warm tones containing two matte shades and one shimmer. The first color is a shimmery peach/champagne, next is a matte cream shade, last is a matte jade green color. I really like that these trios have a mixture of matte and shimmer shades. I don't have any trios similar to this so that is cool. The colors don't show up quite as pigmented on the lid but are still pretty. The shadow is soft and creamy and blends very nicely.

Diversity contains cool tones including two shimmers and one matte. The first shade is a shimmery frosted pink, next is a matte cream, followed by a shimmery purple/brown. In the pan, the last shadow looks more brown but when you swatch it, it shows up more purple. These shadows were a bit more pigment than the Imagine palette.I think this is because they are shimmer and not matte. They lasted a little longer too.  Diversity j was just as soft and blendable.  I think this was my favorite trio of the two.

Lipstick in Charming and Tempting $14.99
Charming is a baby doll pink while Tempting is a pinkish red. Both are more on the glossy side but have nice pigmentation. Tempting is my favorite of the two. I put the lipstick on around 8:00 a.m. and it lasted all morning into the afternoon even with eating and drinking. It faded a little from eating but nothing a little lip balm couldn't fix. I would say wear time is around 4 hours. Charming had a wear time of about 3 hours including eating and drinking.

This is a dark raspberry/rum raisin color with a cream finish. It looks lighter in the picture than how it dries on the nail. I really like the color. It applies evenly and is very opaque. I only painted one coat on my nail and there were no light spots. I would still do two coats though. I have gel polish on my nails right now aside from the one finger I painted. I am terrible at painting my nails so I will spare you the close up picture. Below is a swatch of the nail polish on a piece of white plastic. The polish also dried fairly quickly.

In the below look I am wearing the Imagine Eyeshadow Trio, Tempting Lipstick, and Flashy Blush. 

In the look below I am wearing the Diversity Eyeshadow Trio, Charming Lipstick, and Smashing Blush.
Overall, I really enjoyed these products. My favorite products of the bunch are the Diversity Eyeshadow Trio, Temping Lipstick, and Flashy Blush. I love that these products are all natural and eco friendly. I also love the fact that they are gluten and cruelty free. Some people with Celiac Disease can't even wear certain cosmetics that contain glueten or they will have a reaction. This would be a great line for those people.

*I was sent these  products for review purposes. However, the thoughts and opinions in this post are my own. I am always 100% honest in my reviews for all products discussed on my blog.
