Beautiful Lips and Lashes with Mirabella Lighten Up Collection

//products provided for consideration//

Mirabella Beauty released one of the prettiest, oh-so-me collections I have seen, recently. The Lighten Up Collection for Spring is a handful of beautiful corals, pink and a hint of delicate golden bronze. Soft, washed and gently shimmery, this collection brightens up my face and lightens my mood.

I have several of the products from this collection but so many photographs and thoughts to share that I decided to break this up into a bit of a mini-series. This article will concentrate on luscious, pouty, soft lips and sweeping fans of lush, full lashes. Are you ready?


Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick in Balmy Nectar is packaged in a chic, two tone black and silver plastic tube that has a twist and click closure that keeps it from becoming a messy missile in my bag. I like that. This full coverage lipstick featuring Berry Flux Vita, a raspberry extract offers moisturization while Argan Oil and Litchi Chinensis Fruit Extracts provide beautiful glide, comfort and rejuvenate the lips. Sensitive beauties rejoice! Free of fragrance, parabens and gluten, this is one made for most lippie, indeed.


Balmy Nectar is a lovely, somewhat pink leaning coral. Wearable and, I believe flattering to a wide variety of skin tones. This photograph shows the bullet a bit deeper than it is in person, my camera pulled it very pink.

Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick in Balmy Nectar on my lips. The blue-red of my natural lip tone pulls this lipstick to a very pink-coral.

Application of this lipstick is a delight. Soft, silken smooth, the bullet glides across the lips with no drag or tugging. A few easy strokes gives full coverage and a glossy finish. Slippy and very hydrating, this lipstick is gorgeously comfortable to wear and it makes my lips look fresh and oh-so-pretty. Wear time, contrary to Mirabella's claim of up to ten hours of wear is not stellar. I have to refresh this on a regular basis. I don't mind, it's easy enough to smack on when needed. Those of you with those vertical lip lines we all enjoy so much (yeah, that was sarcasm) don't forget your clear barrier pencil. If I forget mine, this lipstick is perfectly happy to bolt it's confines and start crawling off into parts unknown.

Overall, I am desperately in love with Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick in Balmy Nectar and I'm wiling to bet that if you tried it, you would be, too.

Let us discuss mascara. Specifically, waterproof mascara. Now, I don't know about you but waterproof mascara annoys the living daylights out of me. While it does hold a curl better than it's non waterproof cousin, I always have trouble with it clumping and removal is a nightmare. A lot of remover or oil, a long time rubbing and tugging and a lot of lost lashes to get it all off. No. Just, no.

Until now. May I present to you Mirabella Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara? Holy cats, gentle reader! I mean... Holy cats! Yassss! Finally!


Mirabella calls this "The mascara that does it all. Waterproof formula volumizes, curls, builds and lengthens lashes while remaining soft and flexible." And you know what? They ain't lying. This is the only waterproof mascara that I have ever. EVER liked. Let me share with you why.


A slender, slightly tapered bristle wand picks up just the right amount of this deeply black, not too wet, not too goopy formula and deposits it smoothly and evenly. This mascara builds lovely volume and enhances length to create a fluttery fan of lashes easily and in little time, at all. I am not, as a rule a multiple coat mascara person. I don't know why. I like to apply one good coat and be done and this mascara goes right along with my plan.


Just look at that soft, full, clump free fan of lashes. With one generous coat! All day wear with no transferring, no smudging, not even the tiniest flake to be seen. And when it's time to take it off, grab some bi-phase micellar water or eye makeup remover and a couple of cotton pads. Hold a saturated but not dripping cotton pad to the eye for a few seconds then gently work the mascara away. While this formula doesn't remove as readily as non waterproof, it is astonishingly easy to get rid of without tugging, rubbing too hard or lash loss.

Like my eye shadow? Watch this space.

Mirabella Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara is the real deal. If you like waterproof mascara but you dislike battling with it, you need to try this one. It really is that good. I hope that Mirabella is still carrying this when I need another tube of waterproof, some day. I'd buy it, in a heartbeat.
