Mineral Make-Up Reviews


This week I wanted to introduce two mineral make-up brands to you; Fresh Minerals and Raw Minerals.

Mineral make-up is the most simple and natural product you can put on your skin. These ingredients are minerals & inorganic pigments that exist in nature, which are finely milled and purified, then treated or coated with other pigments to create different colours and effects.

The ingredients in mineral make-up allow the skin to breathe and doesn’t block or clog your skin's pores. Plus it offers protection from UVA light and protects the skin from environmental pollutants.

The products I received from Fresh Minerals included waterproof mascara, the Solar eye shadow and the Love Bites shade of lipstick. The lipstick worked and felt like a normal lipstick, but the color is horrendous, do not get the Love Bites shade. Looks like that crazy old woman shade of orange red.


The Fresh Minerals eye shadow didn't cover like I would like. Even after putting foundation on my eye lid and then applying the eye shadow, didn't work well. It was very light and rubbed off very quickly. The Solar shade is great though. I am really into greens on the eyes right now.

As for the waterproof mascara, great! No real clumping and didn't budge when I dunked my head in water. You wouldn't confuse my lashes for fakies, but they looked thick and lovely. It made my lashes pop in a natural way. An awesome task since mineral brands don't always do mascara very well.

From Raw Minerals I received the 7-piece discovery kit for skin perfection. I love it. Although pricey at $180 (at least to me) the brushes are fantastic, the SPF 18 veil awesome (I hate putting on sunscreen everyday this is so much easier and more fun) and don't get me started on the bronzer. I will never part with this bronzer. It blends into my skin so well and naturally, it looks like I am glowing from a refreshing run instead of looking like I applied make-up. My skin always looks amazing after a run, this is a great way to skip the workout part (… but then I'd get fat. Ah, the pros and cons of life).

Use the coupon code: DISCOVERY50 on the Raw Minerals website to receive 50% off and free ground shipping on orders over $50.00.

My product reviews are my honest and personal opinion. I never accept payment for product reviews although I am given the sample to keep. If I am sent something that is unimpressive or boring I don’t write about it.

Leave a note for Vanessa.
