Modern Minerals Review

So excited to share with you guys my Modern Mineral’s Review.  I wanted to review them for a while and thought what better time than summer!  I had the pleasure of sampling a wide array of their products from eyeshadows to lip gloss!  I had first heard about Modern Minerals from Beauty Heroes last year.  I was so impressed with the pigments and staying power.  I had so much fun creating some summer makeup looks with the line!

This luxe makeup line was founded by Diane Reade.  A designer at heart, she always loved makeup and the way it made her feel.  She wanted to infuse her background in aromatherapy with makeup, and create a truly unique cosmetic line.  After researching, he realized she also wanted to create a line that didn’t test on animals or contain animal products.  Well, she definitely created something beautiful.

Now I must also mention another green beauty brand involved in some of Modern Minerals products-Lotus Wei.  These two unique beauty brands have come together to create something truly wonderful.  Lotus Wei uses flower essences to create the most beautiful natural scents.  The flower essences and gemstones are meant to promote feelings of love, inner strength, compassion and living in the present moment.  A lip gloss that makes you feel good from the inside out?!  Sign me up!

I tried a handful of their products and I’m here to dish on them!

Moonstone Highlighter-

This cream highlighter I tried last year and I literally love it still after trying so many others.  It goes on so smooth and silky and leaves my skin with the perfect glow.  It’s a cream texture which I love.  I put this along the bridge of my nose, above my eyebrows in the middle of my forehead and along my upper cheek bone.  The perfect way to accentuate and highlight your face.  I even applied it underneath my brows and loved it too.  It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy-the consistency is exactly what you want in a highlighter. I have this highlighter on in every photo below.  Grab your highlighter here!

Lola and Toffee Eyeshadows-

These loose mineral eyeshadows are so pigmented and last forever!  I love the shimmer in them.  I get my eyeshadow brush wet and then swirl it in the product and tap the excess off.  Putting them on wet gives them such a pretty metallic look-I can’t get enough.  The colors blend so well too.  Lola is such a pretty rose shadow with bronze shimmer.  Toffee is perfect for adding some depth to your lid and defining it.  A perfect milk chocolate with warm undertones.  These two together are so pretty! I have these two on in the photo of myself to the far right.  Get your eyeshadows here!

Maya Eyeshadow-

This is part of the eyeshadow collection that’s infused with coconut and flower essences.  They truly are so luxe!  I sampled the rose color last year and loved it!  The pigment is amazing and it lasts all day.  I was so jazzed to try the color Maya, it’s a matte earth tone that literally can work with any color as the perfect base.  Say hello to your new favorite neutral. I have this on in the middle photo of myself below!  Snag your eyeshadow here!

Touch of Blush Invigorating Lip Gloss-

This color is perfect…seriously.  I’m convinced it will go with any skin tone, and pairs so well with any liner or lipstick.  It has a hint of shimmer in it and invigorates your lips with Ayurvedic Swertia Chirata Extract and Asian Dragon Fruit.  This combo gives your lips some serious fullness!  The gloss doesn’t feel tacky at all, instead it offers such a gorgeous overall shine to your lips.  In the second photo below of me I’m wearing Touch of Blush.  The lip gloss is made with some synthetic color.  I did ask the founder about the synthetic color and she said it is the smallest amount.  I typically avoid synthetic color, however I don’t wear glosses all the time and feel the pay off is better for me to have a great gloss than an average one when I do wear one.  But everyone is different, you make an informed decision for yourself.  Get your lip gloss here!

B of Love Lip Gloss-

This lip gloss color is so fun! It looks really bright in the tube but once you put it on it’s much more subtle.  It offers the perfect hint of pinkish tones and basically screams spring and summer.  I felt this instantly just woke my whole face up!  This is part of the Emotive lip gloss collection that is infused with Lotus Wei’s flower essences.  So not only is the lip gloss pretty but smells amazing!  This gloss was inspired by the gorgeous beauty blogger Britanie from the blog Beauty By Britanie.  I couldn’t love the color she inspired more!  In the first photo below I’m wearing B of Love!  The lip gloss is also made with some synthetic color.  I did ask the founder about the synthetic color and she said it is the smallest amount.  I typically avoid synthetic color, however I don’t wear glosses all the time and feel the pay off is better for me to have a great gloss than an average one when I do wear one.  But everyone is different, you make an informed decision for yourself.  Get your lip gloss here!

Eyeshadow Travel Mini Set in Starstruck-

These eyeshadow sets are such a brilliant idea!  You can try out three different eyeshadow colors without the crazy commitment.  They come in the cutest little pouch and are so great even for travel.  You literally have your whole eye look in three little jars.  The Starstruck set is perfect for creating a smokey eye with lots of shimmer.  It includes Reach For The Moon- a really pretty cream color. You also get Champagne- a gorgeous bronzey/brown color.  The last little guy you get is Rockstar- a dark blackish hue perfect for creating the smokey effect.  If you’re hesitant on which shadows to purchase I recommend starting with a mini set! In the first photo above I’m wearing the travel set in Starstruck.  I even lined my eyes with Rockstar!  Get your mini set here!

Lip Creme Tint in Joyful-

I was so excited to get a lip creme tint- the newest creation from Modern Minerals.  These come in their signature round jars and offer a hint of color for your lips.  I got the color joyful- a pretty red hue.  It looks bright red in the jar but once you apply it, the color is much more subtle and subdued.  Did I mention how moisturizing they are?!  So hydrating and they smell amazing too.  I can see wearing these all summer long!  I even applied it to my cheeks!  They offer two other colors, Blissful-a pinkish hue and Playful- a fuchsia hue.  I need them all!  These do contain some synthetic color.  I did ask the founder about the synthetic color and she said it is the smallest amount.  I typically avoid synthetic color, however I don’t wear glosses all the time and feel the pay off is better for me to have a great gloss than an average one when I do wear one.  But everyone is different, you make an informed decision for yourself.   Snag your Lip Creme Tint here!

That sums up my Modern Mineral’s Review.  See anything you want?!
