Review: Mineral Fusion Cosmetics #MineralFusion

A couple of years ago I reviewed a line of skincare called Mineral Fusion: (Ultimate Moisture Facial Cleanser, http://bit.ly/Qb8VhR) , (Skin Renewing Facial Scrub, http://bit.ly/1eJnbHc), (Age-Defying Treatment Serum, http://bit.ly/OVgBmY), (Balancing Facial Moisturizer and Intense Hydration Cream, http://bit.ly/1nWWZyN) and (Brush-On Sun Defense, http://bit.ly/1jqhgLg). This line had some of the best skincare I had ever tried. I adore the Ultimate Moisture Facial Cleanser. It is the best cleanser I have ever used. Below are my reviews for some of the Mineral Fusion Cosmetics. I was excited to try the line out. I had hopes that it would be as good as the skincare line. Was it? Let’s find out! I tried the following items: Curl Care Beauty Balm For Hair All-In-One, All-In-One BB Cream, Eye Shadow Trio, Eye Pencil, Volumizing Mascara, 3-in-1 Color Stick, Lipstick, Lipgloss and Nail Lacquer. These cosmetics are hypoallergenic and are never tested on animals.

Curl Care Beauty Balm For Hair All-In-One $12.99 5 fl.oz./147 mL
Mineral Fusion Curl Care Beauty Balm for Hair All-In-One
The Curl Care Beauty Balm For Hair All-In-One treatment is a leave in conditioner type treatment that helps to style hair, hydrates it and protects it in one step. It can be used on wet or dry hair. This treatment will tame flyaway hair and it conditions split ends, to help keep them in check. It defines curls, keeps frizz under control and leaves hair shiny, soft and in great condition.
I found this leave-in conditioner to be great for my wavy hair. I tried it in damp hair and dry hair. It works great either way. For damp hair, apply to towel dried hair. Work in all over and blow dry. For dry hair, work into ends so that it does not weigh hair down. Either way, hair ends up looking shiny, soft and beautiful!
 

 

 


Illuminating Mineral Beauty Balm  $24.99 2.0 fl.oz./60 mL
Mineral Fusion BB Cream
This beauty balm comes in three types: perfecting, untinted and illuminating. I tried the illuminating formula. It is slightly yellow, just a bit too much for my very light skin but I can see that it would work for someone who is just a bit darker than me.
The Mineral Beauty Balm instantly evens and perfects skin tone and minimizes pores and fine lines. It hydrates the skin, while soothing aloe and nourishing botanicals moisturize skin. Age-defying peptide blend and anti-oxidants help to promote cell renewal for younger looking skin. Titanium dioxide 7.4% (SPF 9) shields skin from the sun’s rays.

.Eye Shadow Trio $24.99 0.10 oz./3.0 g

Mineral Fusion Eye Shadow Trio _Imagine
These soft yet richly pigmented eye shadows come in 8 trios. The trios are color coordinated, crease-resistant and apply effortlessly. Age-defying ingredients such as pomegranate, white tea, red tea and sea kelp soothe skin and help defend against free radical damage. The shadows are free of gluten, parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc.
I tried the Imagine trio, which is a warm green, terracotta and maize. It was an interesting choice for them to put these three together. I found these to be very pigmented and the colors went on smoothly. There was also almost no fallout with these eye shadows. All in all, these eye shadows are great and I would recommend them.

 

 


Eye Pencils $14.99 0.04 oz./1.1 g
These mineral eye pencils have rich color that should glide on smoothly to define and enhance eyes. Formulated with chamomile, meadowfoam and Vitamin E to soothe the delicate skin around the eye. The pencils are free of gluten, Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil_Volcanicparabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc.
I tried Volcanic, a charcoal color. I do wish I could say that these pencils ‘glide’ on effortlessly but I found them to be a bit stiff. For me, these pencils are hard as a rock. I found the color to be quite beautiful but I had a lot of trouble lining my eyes with it.
 
 
Volumizing Mascara $18.99 0.57 fl. oz./17 mL
Mineral Fusion Volumizing Mascara
Volumizing mascara makes lashes luxurious and full with the full-bristle brush that effortlessly coast lashes. It makes them thicker and fuller with its mineral formula. Pure mineral color defines each lash to define and brighten eyes. The gentle, non-irritating formula applies easily without any clumping, flaking or smudging. This mascara is free of gluten, parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc.
What I like most about this mascara is that it gives great volume to the lashes without clumping. My lashes are invisible. Literally. I have fairly long, white lashes but I need oomph. This mascara gives them some oomph and it does it without making them look goopy.

 

3-in-1 Color Stick $19.99 0.18 oz./5.1 g
Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick_Magnetic
This product is a versatile product that is all you need to provide color to your eyes, cheeks and lips. It has a lightweight formula that adds subtle shimmer and a beautiful glow to the complexion. Apply and blend with fingertips. It blends easily and lasts throughout the whole day. This stick can be tucked into a purse and brought with you for touch ups. Comes in 4 shades. This product is free of gluten, parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc.
I love that this is so versatile. I used it on my cheeks for blush and it is not greasy at all but very creamy. The color I tried was Magnetic (plum). The best thing about the 3-in1 Color Stick is that it can be used for the eyes, cheeks and lips and that the color lasts all day long without fading.


Lipstick $14.99 0.137 oz./3.9 g
Mineral Fusion Lipstick_Molten
I am a lipstick junkie. I love a good lipstick. So I was really excited to try Mineral Fusion’s Mineral Lipstick. The luxurious formula goes on so smoothly, with rich color and long staying power. It comes in 8 shades. The formula resists smudging and feathering for a ‘perfectly enhanced pout’. This lipstick is enhanced with pomegranate, red tea, white tea, Vitamin C and Vitamin E to protect lips against free radical damage. Shea butter, jojoba seed oil hydrate, condition lips and keep them supple. This lipstick is free of gluten, parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc.
I find this lipstick to be so luxurious and smooth. It is a great formula. The color I tried, Molten, was a beautiful neutral YLBB brown with a hint of pink.
 
Lip Gloss $11.99 0.135 fl.oz./4 mL
Mineral Fusion Lip Gloss comes in 5 luxurious shades. The creamy lip gloss glides on lips with an ultra glossy finish. It hasMineral Fusion Lip Gloss_Serene (2) sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate lips and keeps lips lush. It is also infused with anti-oxidants white tea, red tea, pomegranate, Vitamin A and Vitamin C to protect against free radical damage. This lip gloss is free of gluten, parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and talc. It is also preservative free.
I tried Serene, a really pretty shimmery earthy red. Such a gorgeous color! The pigments in this red are different than any other I have seen. It gave the color a beautiful sheen that made the gloss look almost ethereal. It goes on fairly sheer though, not heavy and not sticky, which is nice. I wore this over the lipstick for a fun, light, shimmery look.
Nail Polish $7.99 0.33 fl.oz./10 mL
Mineral Fusion Nail Lacquers_ Rose Quartz and Rockfall (1) Mineral Fusion offers a healthier alternative to traditional nail polish. They have 61 gorgeous shades! Their long-lasting chip-resistant Mineral Nail Polish formula has a an extra thick brush. The formula is toluene free, formaldehyde, camphor and dibutyl pthalate free. Like all of their cosmetics, upholds their standards for purity.
I received Rose Quartz (rosy pink) and Rockfall (navy blue). Unfortunately, all of my nails have been breaking lately and I have not been able to use an nail polish lately. My nails are in very bad shape. But the colors are quite beautiful!
