Natures Brilliance By Sue Mineral Eye Colors: Review, Swatches and EOTDs

Today, I am reviewing three mineral eye colors from Nature's Brilliance By Sue. I have been testing on their blush and lip balms too, which I will be reviewing later.  As this is my first review on their products, let us check more about the brand before the product description. About the Brand: Sue is the Sole Proprietor of Nature's Brilliance By Sue. It is located on the East Coast in a small town in New Jersey. It was formed to help people locate products for their skin tone & skin type. Sue has dealt with multiple allergies for years and through persistence and exhaustive research has found a line of natural mineral make-up and organic skin and body care products suitable for all skin types, even those with multiple allergies. Nature's Brilliance By Sue will not sell any product that is not 100% Natural or Organic and has not been tested by the owner her self. Sue has a Diploma in both Holistic Beauty Therapy and Holistic Herbal Therapy; with Certificates in Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Bach Flower Remedies, Crystal Healing, and Business Development for the Alternative Health Therapist, from the Natural Health Institutes, based in Canada. 

There is no detailed product description given, but as per the site these mineral eye colors are made of Mica, Iron Oxide. Matte shades contain Serecite (uncolored mica). These are mineral eye colors, hence that becomes a huge plus for all nature lovers. Why should we always go for the chemical ones?

My Experience with these Eye colors
I got a full size pack (Ocean blue) and 2 samples from the brand for reviewing purposes. From my point of view, the packaging is sturdy, fit and travel friendly. Still you need to be careful while application as there may be some fall outs because of the thing that they are loose eye pigments. The eye colors come in a cute small transparent plastic tub with handwritten shade name on the base. Isn't that natural for a mineral eye color? There is an inner vacuum lid present with tiny holes to prevent spillage, overall I don't find anything bad about the packaging.

From my personal experience, I loved all the three shades I got, especially the ocean blue one. The Ocean Blue shade has white, sky blue and bright ink blue shimmers which are glittery. To say about the Mint Shimmer shade, it is a lovely milky pale green shade with white and light green shimmers and the Blue Topaz shade is more glittery while comparing to the other two shades. The Blue Topaz one has a very slight ink blue tint which would not be that visible on your eyelids. All these shades are rich and smooth to be easily applied over your eyelids. A very small amount is needed for your whole eyelid area to achieve a soft look, however you can make it pigmented for a party or festival look. The shades ocean blue and mint shimmer are moderately pigmented with tiny shimmers while the blue topaz one shows just a little blue tint with more shimmery glitters. One needs to be more careful while applying their more glittery shades to prevent here and there' spreading of glitters around the eye areas.
   Some shades from the range are moderate pigmented with tiny glitters while the others are very shimmery having a slight tint. Of course, there are some matte shades too. The staying power is approximately 5 to 6 hours which is pretty good for me. These mineral eye colors can be easily removed with your regular cleansing milk. Overall, the mineral eye colors from Nature's Brilliance By Sue are worth every penny to try. You would love to wear them for party and festival eye looks, of course, the less glittery shades can be worn for daily wear too. I am in love with these mineral eye colors mainly for the reasons that they are soft, glittery and available in several number of shades.

  1. Several shades with different textures available such as shimmer, sparkle and luster.
  2. It is a mineral makeup product. Hence, no need to fear for much chemicals.
  3. No side effects.
  4. Smooth and easy application.
  5. Glittery shades for party/festival wear.
  6. Easily removable with a regular cleansing milk.
  7. Staying power is  5-6 hours, which is decent.
  8. Cute, Sturdy and travel friendly packaging.
  9. Samples are available to try.
  10. Affordable for the worth and quantity they provide.
  11. The color doesn't tend to change. It fades eventually without looking artificial.

  1. I find nothing bad about these eye colors. You might not like it if you're a lover of deep pigmented matte shade lover. I am not sure though, check out their other shades.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Recommendation: I highly recommend these mineral eye colors to all eye makeup and eye color lovers. A wonderful collection to try!

Would I Repurchase?: Do you think I wont? Of course I will purchase more from their collection. I am currently eying out for the soft pink and coral shades.
