EMBRACING YOUR INNER BEAUTY — Minimalist Spring Makeup

*Bronzing Serum + Illuminating Serum provided for review by Gressa; Serum Foundation was purchased with my own money! All opinions and thoughts are 100% honest and entirely my own.



After sharing my review for Gressa Skin Serum Foundation, I knew the other Minimalist Glamour serums were in my future so when Gressa kindly offered to send me some small samples of these 2 gorgeous products, I was ecstatic!

I’d already purchased the Corrective Serum Foundation back in November and it’s been my go-to foundation for months and months, especially on days when I really can’t be bothered to get all done up. These products work so well and the formulas include beneficial skincare ingredients that work at healing acne, scarring, pigmentation, and fine lines while you wear it. The line of natural color cosmetics is one of the few that includes a base skincare formula with color pigment added in so they are all more or less treatment serums with pigments added to them.

Top to Bottom: Illuminating Serum, Corrective Serum Foundation ( you can see it completely blends in with my skin ), and the Contouring Serum Bronzer.

 The Illuminating Serum has no pigment, but it does have a highlighting effect to it.

It’s not in a glittery sort of way and once applied, the highlighting effect isn’t super obvious; your skin will simply look a bit brighter. It’s also worth noting that the formula includes some pearl mica for instant brightening as well as Gressa’s Healing Complex which includes a blend of potent plant oils meant to help brighten, heal, correct, and even out skin tone.

The Contouring Serum Bronzer has a shimmery brown pigment with red undertones included in the serum formula.

This serum also includes the Gressa Healing Complex of plant ingredients which works to heal, brighten, and correct skin issues during wear and over time. The mica pigments included in this lend a gorgeous sun-kissed glow and/or may also be used to contour skin, as a color on the eyes, etc. It can be used in a number of ways, but on my fair skin, this looks a bit weird as a bronzer. I prefer to use it with a very light hand to contour my face and bring out my cheek bones a bit more. For more tanned skin tones, you will probably get a lot more out of this one because it’s a beautiful color and will go well with more tanned skin tones.

I’ve talked a TON about this Corrective Serum Foundation because it’s definitely become one of my favorite foundations so check out my review on this one for more detailed information on ingredients, effects, and my tips on the best ways to wear and apply this one.

It’s a bit tricky to apply, but once you find the sweet spot, it’s such a beautiful one. The coverage is light, but you could build it up to medium if you wanted to. This serum feels so light and melts right into skin. My friends have told me they had no idea I was even wearing makeup. Couple that with a blend of plant ingredients which heal your skin while you wear it and I’m really sold on this one.

Products Used:


Minimalist Non-Toxic Glamour

I absolutely love the finish of this makeup on my skin. It melts into my skin so well that you cannot tell I’m wearing makeup at all. The only notable difference is a more even complexion with contour and glow.These are perfect for the warmer months of spring and summer and I’ll definitely be using them on workdays when I can’t be bothered to get all done up, but still want to look a little polished and pretty.
