glōminerals is a company that believes that good-for-you beauty doesn’t have to be basic. Their website states that the products are, “uniquely formulated utilizing only the finest pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, triple-milled high-pigment minerals, and an advanced antioxidant complex of Vitamins A, C, and E and green tea extract, glōminerals provides broad-spectrum UV protection and helps to defend against free radical damage, to deliver a radiant, healthy complexion. In addition, glōmineralsformulas are talc-free, non-comedogenic and free of perfumes and chemical dyes, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin types, including those with acne and rosacea.”
These are lofty claims. Do the products live up to them? I say “yes”. I have tested their mineral powder base, liquid bronzer and lip plumper; and concur that the products are as luxurious as they are good-for-you.
gloPressed base ($39.00 USD) — available in 20 shades. This is a matte, not a sparkly, mineral base. You apply it by using a kabuki or powder brush in small circular motions to achieve perfect even coverage. Using the brush of choice apply gloPressed base to clean, moisturized skin, beginning with a small amount, and layering if needed. I found that I only needed a little of this base to achieve an even, flawless look. It stays on and looks fresh for most of the day.
gloSheer tint base bronzing gel ($30.00 USD)— This gel is creamy and easy to apply. When you first squeeze it out it seems really dark, but blends in and looks natural even on my pale skin! I think this would look lovely on all skin tones. I love that it isn’t shimmery at all, which is a nice break from all of the glittery bronzers on the market today. It just give the skin a subtle glow. I sometimes like a little shimmer with my bronzer for night, but this is a great for a day look. This sheer tint also repairs and protects skin from UV damage.
gloLip plumper ($16.00 USD) — This plumper is infused with spheres of Marine Collagen Atelocollgen, which work to plump lips by trapping water and swelling, thus providing volume to the skin’s structures. It is available in clear, perfect plum, very cherry, sheer berry, and copper shimmer. This plumper does swell the lips, but doesn’t sting, which makes it more comfortable to wear than some plumpers. You can use this under a gloss or lipstick, or use it on it’s own for a shimmery pout.
