Mineralogie Mineral Makeup launched their Spring collection for 2014 in August, and I’ve been test driving these products since then.
The collection features two blush duos (Sunset & Riviera, and Harmony & Wallflower), Hustle pressed eyeshadow (a shimmery bronze), Orchid eyeshadow (velvet finish pale lavender), and an unusual lipstick colour for a Spring release- Purple Velvet. There’s a bit of unexpected Vivienne Westwood in this collection I think!
This is the first time I have tried the brand, and I’m pretty happy with the quality so far.
Hustle is a rich bronze with subtle shimmer. It has a soft, finely milled texture and excellent colour payoff. I have worn this as a single eyeshadow blended on the upper lid, as well as part of a night time bronzey smoky eye- it works well both ways and I feel it is quite a versatile product.
It reminds me of the bronzey side of NARS Surabaya Duo, but Hustle is lighter and warmer.
Orchid is one of those eyeshadows that looks very different on an arm swatch compared with what it looks like blended on the eyelids. On the arm, it looks like a super bright lilac pastel. On the eyes it is a more subdued grey lilac- sheer but buildable pigmentation. This makes it a lot more within my comfort zone!
A good shade for Radiant Orchid 2014 Pantone Colour of the Year.
Both Hustle and Orchid stay vivid the entire day on top of my usual Too Faced Shadow Insurance. There is some creasing with Hustle at the 4-5hr mark but otherwise I’m impressed with the longevity and performance of both shadows on my oily lids.
Stay tuned for my review of the Mineralogie Blush Duos and their Purple Velvet lipstick from this collection! Due to be posted 2 days from now.
