I’ve partnered with Gia Minerals for the Beauty Revolution: Embrace Your Mantra. For the I AM FIERCE Collection ($111), I chose products in colors that are bold and statement making but that can still be worn in a variety of ways to enhance individual preferences. Think dramatic eyes, soft glowing cheeks, and cranberry lips.

Starting with the eyes, I chose the eyeshadow in the shade Dreams ($20). It’s a pearly champagne loose shadow with a very subtle shift of greens and reds. This is a nice neutral light base color that can easily mix with a variety of other colors. It’s gorgeous on the lids, but also makes a bright highlighter for the cheeks. If you’re looking for glam, this is it!
I also chose the shadow in the color Ash ($20), a matte, charcoal black. Another versatile shade, it can be worn as a powder eyeliner, a dark eyeshadow, or dampened for richer intensity and control like a liquid eyeliner. Using a brush, you can create your desired outcome whether that’s a skinny, tight line or a soft smokey eye. Both of the shadows contain calendula and white tea extracts which are known to boost collagen in the skin and protect from free radical damage. This aids in the reduction and prevention of wrinkles!
Last on the eyes is the Natural Lash Mascara ($28). I am a mascara junkie, through and through! This formula is very lengthening and buildable. It’s a traditional teddy bear brush and has a creamy dark formula, but is surprisingly lightweight meaning it won’t uncurl your lashes. I also find that this doesn’t clump, even with multiple coats! It has lash growth boosting ingredients like chamomile (which is the first ingredient!), lavender, and rosemary.
On the cheeks, I wanted a soft, flushed glow. The loose mineral blush in the shade Sunset Beach ($26) provides exactly that. It’s a vivid, peachy-pink with a strong gold shimmer; a little goes a long way with this product. The color intensity can be soft and sunkissed if you use a light hand, or bright and dramatic. Because it’s a loose powder, it’s easy to adjust the amount of product on your brush. The choice is yours! This blush, like the eyeshadows, also contains natural antioxidants from tea and calendula to stimulate collagen production!
For the lips, I’ve always been a sucker for reds. They scream confidence and aren’t afraid of being looked at. The shade Curious ($27) is a deep cranberry shade, and the formula is very hydrating and creamy. It’s made with a lot of natural butters and oils to protect and condition the lips. Because of how pigmented this lipstick is, you can layer it over a little lip balm to create a stain-like effect or straight out of the bullet for a vampy look. Worth noting: it stains really well. It’s also made from 98% organic ingredients!
Overall, I am so impressed with this line! It’s all highly pigmented and extremely long wearing, and everything boasts impressive skin-loving ingredients brimming with antioxidants and natural conditioners.
