Starting from the left "Trendsetter, Pagent princess, Bare & Au Natural" 
Trendsetter:  This would be one of my favourite shades..... is a nude-brown shade with a slight shimmer.   Trendsetter is a very versatile colour--you can wear it daily and for going out, as well. It looks just as good worn alone as over a lipstick.  its not highly pigmented when applied on the lips but does give your lips a nice pick me up :) 

Pagent Princess:   its is a very light, baby pink with blue undertones......Its really pretty on the lips this shade would suit those with fair skin types with cool undertones.  I love it tho :) this too has shimmer in it but not over powering 

Bare:  This shade looks darker in the tube than when applied its a very sheer nude give you the MLBB look to be honest :) this one has no shimmer which is perfect for everyday wear 

Au Natural:  This shade is a light beige colour with kind of goldy undertone...... I like this shade its shimmery and brightens up your lips also........i was expecting it to be more natural hense the name but its wearable :)

The mineral glosses swatched on my lips click on image for a closer look

 It's a clear tube with a matte black cap with a doe foot applicator which i love in a lipgloss as it leaves applying the gloss much easier. You get 6,5 grams of product.   In 2 of these glosses you have to dip the applicator a few times before you get enough to do your lips.....these glosses put me in remind of the super shine lip glosses from e.l.f texture wise , they are not overly thick but thick enough to last 2 to 3 hours on your lips....Also there is no scent or flavour off them which is good for people who hate sweet or cosmetic scented glosses........they leave your lips feeling moisturised and wear away perfectly not like some glosses you find you have cakey whitish lumpy lines after about an hour of wear (i hate that).

To be honest im happy with the 4 i have and it wouldnt be on my wishlist to get the rest straight away  Dont get me wrong i love these glosses and i thing they are great for the value and the fact that they are beneficial for your lips but for all of you out there the dont like sweet stickyish glosses ......e.l.f mineral glosses are the perfect gloss for you :)  

Thanks for dropping by to read my review i hope this was helpful to you all let me know what you think.  can i just add these glosses were bought out of my own pocket (As usual) and im simply giving you my own opinion after all everyone is different, But my aim is to try and shed a light on products show and write as much as possible about them so that you then can make your own mind up on either you like or dont like what you see, it saves time and money on your side :) :) 

anyways untils next time girls
lots of Irish kisses your way 
cay soon 
nina :)

The trendsetter shade looks gorgeous. I already have pageant Princess but it's too pale for me and I wanted to see/try a stronger pink. This one looks lovely. Great swatches, as always.
