MINERALISSIMA NEW TO MINERALS

October 11, 2020


This post contains gifted items!
I don’t know about you but I love reading about exciting new (to me) brands and if you’re the same you are going to love this post. 
The brand I want to talk to you today is Mineralissima and even though the brand is new to me it’s not new at all. I’ve always loved the sound of mineral makeup but have never really used it in the past so, I’m keen to try out Mineralissima and see how the brand works for me.

So firstly a bit of a back story.

Mineralissima was formed in 2007 by Kati in the Netherlands.

Kati was inspired by the make-up brand Bare Minerals, which she discovered on a trip to America and thought that the Netherlands should also get their own version of a completely natural, mineral makeup. 

When she returned from America she immersed herself into natural ingredients and products makeup with her aim being. 


“ Made with as little burden to the environment as possible.

Made without causing suffering to the animals.

Made for every skin type, and especially the sensitive skin that she herself has.

Made for every wallet, so that it is available to everyone.

Made to make you look gorgeous and radiant”. 


So it’s safe to say the brand has come a long way since 2007 and now Mineralissima has gone global helping thousands of women around the world to get the right makeup for their skin. 


So what is actually in Mineral makeup?

Mineralissima use only materials that have been extracted from Earth.

The main ingredients are minerals such as iron and zinc oxides, which are ground into tiny, shimmering particles for our skin’s use. 

These include Iron Oxide to match your skin type and colour.

Zinc Oxide as a natural sunscreen, antioxidant and anti inflammatory.

Mica Powders to create instant glow and shimmer.

Titanium Dioxide that is a natural pigment with a sunscreen.

This makes the product long lasting which means they have a longer shelf life and very versatile. 

The products contain no chemicals except to the mascara and eyeliner and provide coverage whilst feeling lightweight with no cakiness just natural looking skin. 

The minerals also reduces the appearance of fine lines which is something to consider if you worry about ageing. 

Where as I don’t have sensitive skin and am lucky enough to be able to use any product on my face, I am recently becoming more aware of what products contain chemicals and “skin nasties” that I don’t really want to be using anymore. This is what makes mineral products so amazing. 


So what are the products that I have been sent?

The brand kindly gifted me the “new to minerals” box. As the name suggests it’s a little trial box of some of the products that the brand produce. 

This is such a good idea and means you get to try out the products and shades before buying.

I have been trying all the products from the box over the last week or so and really wanted to share with you each product and what I thought of them. 

I will leave the link below for you to check out the samples available.

In my box I received. Two foundations, concealer, blusher, bronzer and an eye shade. 

In fact every base product you are going to need for a flawless base.

As well as a mini brush which I will talk about more towards the end as it’s my new favourite brush ever. 

The products are easy to use but there are instructions on the back of the box just in case. The samples are small enough to carry around with you and complete with the brush would fit into your handbag perfectly..

So let’s talk about the products!! 



BRONZER

So first the Bronzer which will give you bronzed skin any time of the year. The product contains natural pigments with a reddish undertone.

The product is so long lasting and even if you choose to wear it alone or over the top of your makeup to finish your look you are going to get long lasting wear however you wear it.

The shades can be mixed as well to find your perfect tone. This works perfectly as in the summer months my skin can be naturally darker.


BLUSHER

I really struggle with blushers. I tend to go for really pink shades that look super harsh and look so over the top. This one is different. With 12 shades to choose from there is definitely a shade that will compliment your skin.

All the shades are soft focus and long lasting and suitable for even the most sensitive of skins.


THE EYESHADOW 

I love a good eyeshadow but have always steered clear of loose powder ones as I worry about fall out. The shade I have received is called Beach and is so easy to wear and I would say would suit most skin tones. It’s really easy to blend and the colour payoff is really good. I found it worked really nicely when worn over the top of a cream eyeshadow. Sadly I couldn’t find a link on the website for this item at the time of writing this post. 


FOUNDATION 

Buying foundation can be a little tricky but Mineralissima have you covered. 

With 23 different shades in the range maybe a bit overwhelming but the brand are here to help you with their “Choose the right foundation for your skintone” page. This offers advice to pick the right shade for you and shades can be mixed which is such a great idea for Summer/ Winter skin tones. 

Whichever shade your choose the mineral foundation will give you a natural looking flawless finish with plenty of other benefits. Such as natural sun protection, natural ingredients, safe for all skin types including sensitive skins, vegan friendly and not tested on animals. The product offers great pigmentation and the coverage is buildable. 

A little really does go a long way but is never Cakey and looks super flawless and so easy to use. 

CONCEALER

If you are after a soft natural concealer the brand also have you covered. 

There are 7 shades to choose from and each one can be mixed for your chosen shade. 

The mini jar has enough product for you to use multiple times as a little goes a very long way and this worked really well for my under my eyes, which is where I need it the most. 

All the items above are available as full sized products and you can even buy refills for the full sized products. So not only great for your skin but for the environment as well. 

So now onto the full size products. 



THE FOXY LASH MASCARA £16

This mascara is a really game changer. Firstly the product is vegan and has been developed so the brush is flexible and super easy to apply

It’s perfect for even the most sensitive of eyes and doesn’t flake and is so natural looking. 


EMERALD GREEN EYELINER £10 

So I’m not going to lie I have never owned an eyeliner that isn’t in the shade black. So I loved the fact that this one is Emerald green.

It doesn’t smudge and is super soft to use. It blends really well and is so long lasting.


It’s not full of chemicals either so is suitable for sensitive eyes with it being hypoallergenic. The green shade really makes your eyes pop and even though it’s not a colour I would normally go for, I used it everyday since receiving it.  

The pencil is available in 3 different shades and love it so much I’m tempted to repurchase this in black.


And last but not least....

The set also comes with a Mini Kabuki brush. (I’m sorry the picture of the brush looks full of product!) This brush is available the purchase alone and is super soft and work hand in hand with the mineral powders. It’s just the right density for the powder and because the brush is mini it gives you total control over your makeup look. As well as this it’s the perfect size for on the go and fits perfectly into your handbag. 


All in all I really love this range. I love how whatever your skin type or tone the brand have just the right products. 

I love the fact that the mineral powders can be mixed so you could literally customise your very own shade and the brand do refills as well making the brand environmentally friendly and purse friendly as well.

The brand also offer pressed mineral powder compacts. This is especially good if you are not really a loose mineral powder person. 

Sorry for the weird selfie but I really wanted to show you the eyeliner ( which I have in my waterline!) and mascara. I am also wearing the Bliss blusher as well. 

I have tried to leave the links below for each item, but if this has got you wanting to know more I will leave you the link to the whole website below.
