Mirabella Beauty is a line of mineral-based cosmetics, created in 2002 by salon owner and makeup artist Christy Thurston. With its range of colourful shades and bright lip colours, Real Style was instantly intrigued by the beauty line and decided to give the professional-quality products a try. Here is what we thought of our Mirabella makeover, after testing both the Rose Velvet Lip Pencil and the brand’s Lash Essential mascara:
The Velvet Lip Pencil glides on easily- always a great first sign in a lip product. We loved the universally flattering vibrant pink (an enriched magenta which works for either night or day). While we weren’t expecting such long-lasting colour, one application brought us through the evening. If you are afraid to try a bold new shade, the Rose Lip Pencil is an excellent first step towards embracing bright colours with confidence. Also, we were impressed with the non-drying formula- our lips stayed nourished even after having the lip pencil on for several hours on a chilly November night.
Next, we tried the Lash Essential in Black in the hopes of thick and full lashes to set off our eyes! This mascara does the trick for beauty addicts looking for a natural yet nourished vibe, and fans of natural beauty will be impressed with the subtle formula. Lash Essential managed to stay on for an entire day, without clumping, drying our eyelashes, or creating a smudged mess. Also, it gave off that desired effect of darkened yet non-dramatic eyes.
With lush lashes and vibrant smiles predicted to be major trends yet again, we recommend the Lip Pencil and mascara for your holiday beauty kit. Real Style looks forward to embracing the Mirabella look this season!
