Virginia Olsen Minerals 2014 Collection + FOTD

Just because I'm currently into mineral makeup (such a late bloomer, I know!), I'm excited to share with you some shades from Virginia Olsen Minerals 2014 Collection - in stores starting July 2014.


Shades:

Darling (matte)

Innocence (highlighter, for darker skin tone)

Soda Pop (matte)

Wine Matte (matte)

These mineral pigments have a very smooth and creamy texture, which makes is easily blendable and versatile.

Swatches:

Darling | Innocence | Soda Pop | Wine Matte

I know these are meant to be eyeshadows, while marveling at the pretty colors on my arm (with this swatch), I decided to get all creative and do a full face (and not just the eyes) makeup look using these 4 shades.


Innocence may be marketed as a highlighter (for darker skin tone), but it's pink and shimmery, so it also makes for a bright and girly eyeshadow. I used Wine Matte to define the eyes even more, by using it to line my upper lashline and also to fill in my brows.


My favorite thing about mineral makeup: you can create your own lip color! Soda Pop is bright purple with hints of pink, and it could pass for a radiant orchid shade. So I just mixed a lip gloss with the pigments to create this lip shade!


As for the cheeks, I decided to use matte Darling for that pretty, subtle, and most natural flush.


The best part is, no matter how much I play with mineral makeup, I don't get pimples or skin irritations. Virginia Olsen Minerals is 100% natural and free from parabens, bismuth, talc, and fragrances. The pure formulation makes it very ideal for sensitive skin, giving it a natural and flawless coverage. It also contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are natural sunscreen ingredients to further protect our skin from the sun's damaging rays.


Prices:
  • P165.00 for each eyeshadow (Darling, Soda Pop, Wine Matte)
  • P280.00 each for the highlighter (Innocence)

These products will be available in the Philippines this July 2014 in www.virginiaolsen.com, www.lazada.com.ph, and The Ramp Crossings Shangri-La Mall.

Love,
Helen
