Virginia Olsen Mineral Makeup (FOTD, Swatch, Review)

Like it? Share it!

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.

A simple FOTD (Face of the Day)

 

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.

    The swatches look intimidating. I used to have mineral makeup few years ago but it was messy and they made me sneeze. However, i'd like to revisit but proly this time I'd try the compact ones.

    Random: Is Virginia related to the Olsen's sisters? lolz.

    I have virginia olsen eyeshadows too! I love the color midnight glam, perfect for attending party! 🙂 I love how pigmented the colors are but as youve said, you need a good set of brushes nga. 🙂 Will purchase champagne too, like ko yung color. Ang cute, natural! 🙂 Thanks for sharing Ms. Kat! Love your make up!! <3

    yes! haha. sana nga ibahin nila yung packaging nila. better if parang sa mga baby powder para control yung dami, and they should have free brushes too! haha.

    is it advisable for men?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 11, 2014 at 6:26 am

    I've never tried mineral eyeshadows for I am not a fan of eye make-ups. Monolid po kasi ako and I find it hard to apply eyeshadow in the right way. But I love the champagne color. Pwede sya pang-everyday make-up 🙂

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 11, 2014 at 6:27 am

    yes!

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 11, 2014 at 6:28 am

    I agree. Champagne color will suit monolids. But don't limit yourself sis on one shade, even monolids can use an array of eyeshadow styles. Black liner on your lashes look best

    I tried liqiud liners kaso mukha naman po akong panda dahil hindi kita pag thin layer lng. 🙁

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 17, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Nice colors and pigmentation. 😀

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 20, 2014 at 6:46 am

    Have you ever tried the foiling method with these eyeshadows?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 23, 2014 at 7:55 am

    I totally agree that you can use mineral make-up in many ways, I used to have Virginia Olsen's eyeshadow in Midnight Glam and whenever I use it, I don't need an eyeliner! Plus it is long wearing even though my skin is oily , 🙂 I like how yo did your FOTD in this post, very simple yet it made your eyes glow , perfect for this rainy season!
