Mineral Fusion: Eye Shadow Trio, 3-in-1 Colour Stick, and Beauty Balm Review

I was introduced to Mineral Fusion a couple months ago while attending a beauty event hosted by London Drugs. I've been a fan ever since because most of their products are paraben anf fragrance free. You can read more about these "Minerals on Mission" and my review on their Lengthening Mascara  here

Today, I will be reviewing Mineral Fusion's Eye Shadow Trio, 3-in-1 Colour Stick and Beauty Balm!

Mineral Fusion's Eye Shadow Trio comes in eight different colour combinations, all of them are really nice Earthy/Natural tones, that beautifully blend shimmery and matte. I currently have the trio labelled "Espresso Gold," which consists of a matte beige, shimmery gold and rich brown.

Honestly, this little pallette is one of my favorite because it's perfect for either using individually or together (perfect for my smokey eye!). Espresso Gold has great, long lasting pigmentation that is crease resistant, I wore it all day for a wedding and didn't have to touch up! The colours glide on smoothly during application, so smooth it almost feels soft...hmm I don't know if I am making sense to you, but I swear that's what I feel ahaha. Can you tell I'm kinda new at reviewing makeup?

Anyways, besides the colour, I LOVE that Mineral Fusion's Eye Shadow Trio is hypo-allergenic, paraben free, artificial colour free, fragrance free, talc free, and gluten free. YES!!!! Oh, and did I mention that it has natural age defying components like pomegranate, white tea, red tea and sea kelp?
Now this little colour stick is awesome, you can use it on your eyes, cheeks and lips! It's super quick and easy to use; no brush needed and if you want to blend, just use your fingertips. The formula is light-weight and has the perfect tint of peach and shimmer.

I never know how much blush to apply when using a brush, so Mineral Fusion's Terra Cotta 3-in-1 Colour Stick is perfect because I just swipe once or twice and blend with my fingertips, leaving my cheeks glowing!

On my lips, the peachy tint was subtle, but the shimmer did show up nicely. I really liked how my lips looked when the sun/light hit.

On my eyes, I used it like a highlighter under my brow, which it was perfect for because of the shimmer and natural tone of colour.

The 3-in-1 Colour Stick comes in four different colours and is Paraben and Gluten Free.
Finally, I tried a BB Cream...I think they are half way through the alphabet with these creams right by now right? Hehehe...Anways, Mineral Fusion's Beauty Balm is an all in one: makeup, moisturizer, age defying treatment and sun protection!

I found that the Perfecting Beauty Balm was sheer, light and creamy. It moisturized my skin, leaving it feeling hydrated and smooth. It blends really well and is breathable. I really like that it is fragrance free, not only because that means that it doesn't smell, but most importantly, it doesn't have a ton of chemicals, which is what "fragrance" really means, seriously! Oh, it's also free of Gluten and Parabens.

Have you tried any Mineral Fusion products? Which one of these products would you be interested in trying??

Check out Mineral Fusion's website or at London Drugs and Whole Foods in Canada, and Whole Foods in the USA.

  1. Nice review! So the root lift product functions similarly to dry shampoo in that it refreshes your hair and makes it look less icky, or do you use dry shampoo specifically to get volume in your hair?
