It’s late summer and that means we’ve been lathering on sunscreen, face lotions, and multiple coats of makeup. It’s time to give your face a breather. Thankfully, MINERAL FUSION makeup is completely cruelty-free, preservative-free, and 100% vegan, which means it’s easy on the face. Most makeup and beauty products are chock full of hard-to-pronounce ingredients, which is why we love DIY beauty recipes. But when you need quick, easy-to-apply makeup when you have little time for getting ready, MINERAL FUSION comes to the rescue with its convenient Glow & Go 3-in-1 Color Stick, MINERAL FUSION Lipstick, and Liquid Lip Gloss.
Glow & Go 3-in-1 Color Stick
If you keep this color stick in your purse all day, you’ll always have a bronzer, blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow without having to carry multiple containers. We tried the color stick in Magnetic. This bronze shade was perfectly shimmery. When applied to the lips, this product had the thickness of lipstick, but with the glowing appearance of lipgloss. It’s lightweight consistency makes it easy to correctly apply to your cheeks and eyelids with easy blending. The Magnetic color is a rosy bronze, making it somewhat of a shortcut so you only have to apply one thing on your cheeks instead of using both a blush and bronzer. We loved pairing the Magnetic 3-in-1 stick as an eyeshadow, bronzer, and lipstick with the liquid lip gloss in Heat. The romantic combo of bronze with a sultry plum gloss will leave you with a golden, goddess-like glow.
The 3-in-1 color stick is similar to our DIY beauty products because it carries the same anti-aging benefits, and they are all rich in antioxidants. This stick in particular is made with pomegranate and white tea for a healthy dose of vitamins and antioxidants for skin regeneration, UV protection, anti-aging, and for nourishing and calming the skin. Licorice root extract and aloe leaf juice soothe the skin and reduce redness, while the mineral pigments provide a skin-friendly, natural color.
The Glow & Go 3-in-1 Color Stick is $19.99 and can be found at MINERAL FUSION or Whole Foods and other natural retailers nationwide.
The MINERAL FUSION lipsticks are long-lasting and smudge-free. The Ruby is the perfect coral-red color. The Heat liquid lip gloss goes smoothly over the Ruby lipstick for a bright, dewy pout. We fell in love with the Crush lipstick, which is a natural pink shade. Top that with a Reflect liquid lip gloss and Magnetic 3-in-1 color stick, and you’ll end up with a subtle, natural, and flawless look. The lipsticks come in more than fifteen shades and are 100% vegan and gluten-free. The lipsticks will provide you with a rich color that also protect your lips from free radical damage due to their antioxidant mineral based formula, pomegranate, red tea, white tea, and vitamin C and E ingredients. Shea butter and jojoba seed oil work together to hydrate lips to keep them soft and supple.
The MINERAL FUSION lipsticks are $14.99 at MINERAL FUSION, Whole Foods, and other health food stores.
Liquid Lip Gloss
Finally, MINERAL FUSION’s liquid lip glosses are the key to a sheer, shimmery pout. As we mentioned before, the Heat color goes great over the Ruby lipstick, and the Reflect shade goes perfectly with the 3-in-1 color stick. Ingredients include sunflower seed oil and vitamin E for nourishing and hydrating lips, while antioxidant-rich white tea, red tea, vitamin C and pomegranate protect delicate lips against radical free damage.
Find the MINERAL FUSION Liquid Lip Gloss at MINERAL FUSION or Whole Foods and other fine health food stores for $6.99.
