The mineral makeup craze started around 2005 and I was one of the first who joined the bandwagon. Want to know something? I never left. there’s something about mineral makeup that I really can’t let go. It’s pure pigment? The way you can use it in many ways? From eyeliner to eye shadow to lip color using one makeup alone. How you can mix it with balms, liquids, and powders. Monave, Lauress, Everyday Minerals. Do they ring a bell? 🙂
It’s the first time I tried mineral makeup from Virginia Olsen Cosmetics. I usually like Ellana for our local brand or Bare Minerals for their foundation. I’m thankful to have received samples from their latest collection so I’m presenting you their swatches, review, and FOTD ahead.
Virginia Olsen Swatches L-R: Gun Metal, Straight Up, Innocence, Champagne
I used Champagne as base, Straight up for the lid and mixed Gun Metal with water to use as a liner. It ended up nicely I didnt expect the blue shade of Straight up to blend well with Gun Metal giving it a semi-smokey look that’s wearable during daytime.
Innocence has a slight iridescent tone to it that it can be worn as blush, lip color, or eye shadow. That’s what’s great with mineral makeup. Your possibilities are limitless.

Compared to other mineral makeup brands I have tried, you need a bit of skill and a set of good brushes to work with Virginia Olsen. I am giving these 4 shades 3/5 stars.
