I don’t like applying beauty products that aren’t primarily made with natural ingredients. I have fairly sensitive skin, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve had issues—like skin allergies and pimples—from using certain makeup brands.
That’s why I was so happy when The Vitamin Shoppe Wellness Testers program sent me the Mineral Fusion Waterproof Mascara in Cocoa, Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick in Rosette, and Mineral Fusion Lipstick in Alluring.
I’m someone who enjoys wearing makeup, so finding brands that don’t cause me to break out or feel like I’m covered in chemicals has always been a challenge. I hadn’t used this particular brand before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. I was hoping it would go on easily, look pretty, and not cause skin irritation, and after using the product for about a week, I definitely noticed its benefits.
Mineral Fusion Lipstick
I tend to prefer subtle touches of color, especially for work, and Mineral Fusion’s Alluring lipstick was exactly what I wanted: a blush-like lip-color without nasties like aluminum. The texture is creamy and thin, which I very much prefer because it’s not cakey and doesn’t feel like I actually have lipstick on. Plus, it’s moisturizing.
Mineral Fusion Waterproof Mascara
The Mineral Fusion Waterproof Mascara was easy enough to apply, and it didn’t clump at all. It also separated my lashes in a way that looked natural and not overdone. I did have to apply a good few coats to achieve the curl and length I wanted, but I loved how the mascara didn’t cause my lashes to get brittle or spider-like.
Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick
I loved the Mineral Fusions 3-in-1 Color Stick in Rosette, as it was really flattering and soft looking. It was easy to smooth on and exceptionally creamy, which creates a dewy look.
I usually can’t use blush because I break out super-easily, but this product didn’t clog my pores at all or have any adverse reactions. The Rosette color worked really well for my skin tone, and didn’t look too kitschy or harsh, as many blushes often do.
I will definitely continue to use the lipstick and mascara, because I found the color and application easy and pleasant to use. Also, because the products are more natural and high-quality, I would recommend the brand to my friends. I believe it’s important to advocate for and use products that are good for us. Mineral Fusion will definitely be one of my go-tos from now on.
