Mirabella Faerie Collection

Mirabella has launched recently a small (but beautiful!) collection which contains 4 limited edition products : a long wear eyeshadow, a mineral highlighter and two lip glosses. These colors flatter almost any skin tones!

Visionary Long Wear Eyeshadow in Myth ($29 US for 9g)
Myth is a warm medium brown with a beautiful shimmery finish. It has a very weird spongy yet creamy texture, but it's very easy to blend and once it set it doesn't budge. It does fade a bit during the day, but it doesn't crease, flake off or smudge! I even tried to rub it with some water and a coton pad, it transfered lightly on the coton pad but the swatch on my arm was still perfect!

I love to wear it all over the lid and on the lower lash line with a light warm shade in the crease such as Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadows in Morocco or Caramel. This color looks amazing on green eyes!




Mineral Highlighter in Swirling Pearl Brilliant ($40 US for 7.5g)
This luminizer is a beauty! It's a light champagne color with a pink-gold duochrome effect, but it's not really noticeable on the skin. The texture and the finish is very similar to MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finish, it's a strong and almost metallic sheen.You can also apply it with a light hand and buff it into the skin if you prefer a more subtle sheen.

It's a very pigmented highlighter but it's also quite translucent which means that it looks great with a tan even if it's a light color, it doesn't look ashy or chalky. Compared to MAC Whisper of Gilt, it's less golden and a tad more pink, but not too pink either. It pretty much look great on anyone who has light to medium skin tones, no matter if you have cool or warm undertones!


Gossamer

Luminosity

Colour Luxe Lip Gloss in Gossamer and Luminosity ($26 US for 4g)
Gossamer is a light peachy pink with a slightly frosty finish, which remind me of MAC Prrr but not as frosty and less peachy. Luminosity is a sheer beige with a sligthly pink undertone and the finish is sparkly but not glittery. Both shades are beautiful, but Luminosity is my favorite!

These aren't very tacky, but they aren't the least sticky lipglosses I have tried. They are definitely less tacky than MAC LipGlass, the texture is similar to Gerard Cosmetics lipglosses but a tad less sticky. I like that they provides antioxidant protection and antiaging properties, but I'm not a huge fan of lipglosses in general and they are still a tad too sticky for me. Not a bad product, just not for me.

(I received these products in order to evaluate them and give my opinion, but rest assured that my comments are always honest and impartial.)
