Mineral Fusion Review, Photos & Swatches: Lips Edition!

May 1, 2013

I recently reviewed several Mineral Fusion eye products, which you can see here, now it's time for the lips! I must say, I wasn't too fond with the colours I received at first but they've all really grown on me!

I've left out photos of the outer packaging for this part of the review because they are so similar to the ones for the eye products. 
I'm going to repeat some of the things said in the previous post about the brand and packaging. 
"Mineral Fusion is based in Denver, Colorado and offer a plethora of products. Offering everything from makeup to skincare to hair and body care, Mineral Fusion is a leading natural cosmetics brand. According to their website, everything is made in the USA and many of it is still handmade, impressive! I think the prices are definitely reasonable and there are many ways to get your hands on their products, I will list some down below!
 The outside packaging on all the products is more or less the same. White, brown and blue. I don't mind it but I wish there was a bit more to design to differentiate the products when they are still in box form. Once out of the box, everything is brown and/or clear. It may sound boring but I actually don't mind that, not many brands use brown as their dominant colour. "
Now onto the review!
Lip Pencils:
By the looks of their website photos, I think they have changed the pencil type. 
From Left to Right: Elegant , Graceful
They look incredibly similar in the packaging and when first swatched. 
From Left to Right: Graceful, Elegant 
Almost a burnt orange colour. A rusty brown that I didn't I'd like but have grown to enjoy. Very pigmented and long lasting. 
Not sure why the swatch is shiny in this photo. Sort of a my lips but... rustier colour! I really love this one, a great neutral base.
Overall Thoughts - A-
Quite standard lip pencil if you ask me. Very pigmented and easy to apply. My problem is the shade selection, 3 are quite deep and brown toned with one being a rose-berry tone. Hopefully they come out with more shades soon. I also feel the price point is quite steep.

Lipstick:I've fallen in love with these!

From Left to Right: Burst, Alluring, Pure
From Left to Right: Burst, Alluring, Pure
They all aren't incredible pigmented but they are far from sheer. 
When I saw this lipstick in the tube I didn't think I would like it at all. I gave this one to my mom thinking that as well, boy was I wrong! I'll have to sneak borrow it. 
Lovely light rose gold colour!
A beautiful berry tone. Leans slightly to the brown side in the tube but much more red toned on the lips.Would be a fantastic fall colour! Love the slightly glossy finish it gives!
A lovely coppery red. Definitely leans on the orange side when it comes to red lipsticks. 
Overall Thoughts - A+
Great everyday, easy to wear lipstick choices. Pretty long lasting, about 5 hours without fading. Not flakey when wearing off either. Not overly pigmented but not sheer. I don't think there is anything wrong with these!

Lipgloss:
Not sticky in the slightest and averagely pigmented. 
From Left to Right: Dazzle, Captivate, Sheen
Doe-foot wand applicator
From Left to Right: Dazzle, Captivate, Sheen
Only slightly pigmented with no apparent shimmer. A my lips but better colour gloss that is quite sheer but applies nicely. 
Not a colour I'm particularly into. A rusty shade that was slightly hard to apply. It is quite thick in the tube and was hard to apply evenly. 
My personal favourite. The micro iridescent shimmers would add a little something to any lipcolour. The rose gold appearance in the tube does not transfer very much on the lips.
Overall Thoughts - A+
I don't see anything wrong with these. They aren't sticky, last an average amount of time, are semi-sheer, and more or less a typical lipgloss, with added natural benefits!

Squeeze tube packaging
Excuse the state of my lips and face, this was taken after a long day!
An incredibly liquid formula, very easily over done! A clear gloss to go on top of any lip products.
Overall Thoughts - A-
An incredibly liquid-y formula that comes out very fast from the tube. The whole on the tube is too big, in my opinion. Other than that, it's clear, not sticky at all and has a very slick wet feeling. Not my personal favourite. All that being said, the other colours available could be much different.

Amount of Product - 0.37 fl oz / 11ml
Price - $6.99
