New: Mineraux Skin Perfecting Minerals

An exciting new addition to Philippine mmu brands: Mineraux Skin Perfecting Minerals

They had their grand product launch last May 23, which unfortunately I was unable to attend. Melissa of Mineraux was kind enough to ship over their products, here they are:




Full sizes of Warm Medium foundation, Apricot eyeshadow, and Mauve blush.

Swatched on my arm:


The foundation seems a tad light on my skin in this photo, but I can't really say much about it yet as I haven't been able to try it on my face. The Apricot eyeshadow is close to the shade of apricots in actual, although a bit lighter and with more pink to it. I used it to highlight my brow. The Mauve blush is my favorite though! If you're not into shimmery blushes you might not like this, since it's quite shimmery, but not overly sparkly or glittery, just right for a shimmery blush IMO. I'm into shimmery blushes, and I love this.

Lasting power of the e/s and blush are okay, I'd say after more than half a day you'd still be able to see the colors on my face. Good thing they didn't make me itch too! And I love black, so I like how the jars look. These are pretty much just initial reactions...here are blogs on Mineraux with photos of their other products: SwipeSomeGloss, Cosmetic Fixation, and Shen's Addiction.

You can get a faint idea of their products' colors from this chart (click to enlarge):



And here is their pricelist:



Affordable, right? :) I don't think their website is set up yet, so in the meantime, if you are interested or have any other questions, you can email info@mineraux.com.ph or Melissa at melissa.vergara@mineraux.com.ph, or contact them via mobile at +639178870760. She replies very promptly to emails :)

I want to try their other eyeshadows, blushes, and bronzers! What are you interested in getting?
