Mirabella Beauty is a much loved brand here at Prime Beauty headquarters. They recently launched Lighten Up, a collection of modern formulas designed to keep skin looking youthful and radiant.

“We created a dreamy spring collection full of flattering warmth and glowing skin, colors that enhance your features and make them a topic of conversation.” says Amber Bowen, Mirabella Creative Director.

The six piece collection is full of brand new products and formulas and includes: three Visionary Long-wearing Eyeshadows, a coral highligher, a new shade of Colour Vinyl Lipstick and new Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara.

Let’s start at the top with the eyeshadows. The texture is like a mousse; light, fluffy and cushiony. They feel wet to the touch, yet dry down to a satin powder finish. The color can be sheered out or built up for more pigment. I like to apply either with my fingertip or with a good synthetic brush. Note: make sure to keep the plastic top that comes in the lid of these shadows–they will dry out without the plastic cover.

The new Visionary Long-Wearing Eyeshadows ($29) are formulated with a high elastomer gel network allowing them to moisturize while absorbing excess oils to keep eyes looking fresh all day. Don’t be put off by the sparkle in my swatches, the elastomer powders create an optical blurring effect so they don’t appear glittery–just slightly shimmery. As an added bonus for us over 40 gals, the blurring effect helps to mask wrinkles too!

  • Vivid is a bright coral great for blue eyes
  • Charmed is a dusty pink perfect for green eyes
  • Imagine is a beige taupe that is universally flattering

Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara ($26) has a flexible formula so lashes don’t feel stiff and crunchy like most waterproof mascaras. In fact, until I started this review, I didn’t even realize this mascara was waterproof! It contains panthenol which adds a protective lash barrier and provides moisture to condition lashes. Removing Lasting Lash is easy-peasy with my Garnier Micellar Water. I really wasn’t expecting much from this mascara and I am delightfully surprised.

Glowing Coral Brillant ($40) is a mineral-based highlighter with Prismatech technology that blurs imperfections and adds radiance to the skin.

“Prismatech is truly a color and texture revolution” says Bowen. “This technology combines the best features of baked, powder and cream products for true color and a smooth finish. Brilliant takes Prismatech benefits t the next level by offering dual-shade shimmer color combinations for a soft, flattering glow.”


It was really hard to get a good picture of this gorgeous highlighter. Glowing Coral Brilliant changes color and sheen as you move the pan; it combines icy champagne with light coral for a beautiful subtle peachy glow. Originally I thought it was a blush and wondered why I couldn’t get enough color. This highlighter impart a pretty warm glow to the face. Although it is intended as a highlighter, with a good dense brush like my IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Blush Brush #4, it can be worn as a lovely peach blush for pale girls.

Pictures cannot capture how luminous this highlighter is and it does not emphasize pores!

To complete the spring collection, there is a new shade of Colour Vinyl Liptick in Balmy Nectar. This glossy lipstick has a gel texture that glides on the lips. It provides full coverage with nice shine, rich color and a satin finish. The formula contains raspberry extract BerryFlux Vita to moisturize and Argan Oil with Lychee Extract to hydrate and provide antioxidants.


Balmy Nectar is a vivid medium pink that will flatter any skin tone and is perfect for spring and summer. I got decent wear, but I wouldn’t say it’s long lasting. My only complaint is how this lipstick wears; I was left with a bright pink ring around my lips.


In this picture I’m wearing the entire look: Vivid Visionary Long-Wearing Eyeshadow,  Lasting Lash Waterproof Mascara, Glowing Coral Brilliant Highlighter as a blush and Balmy Nectar Lipstick.


Bottom Line: the Mirabella Lighten Up Collection is perfect for spring and summer glowy looks!
