These are a few shades of Mirabella Beauty’s Brilliant Mineral Highlighters. In addition to the two finishes available, Bronzed and Brilliant, there is an additional extra dimensional finish available called, Pearl Brilliant. All of the highlighters are mineral based and according to the casing of the bronzers, they appeared baked as well. I know this because one arrived broken and it revealed the bottom. (BTW Mirabella was nice enough to replace the broken bronzer OVERNIGHT! Great customer service.)
Mirabella Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder – Latte Swirl
Latte Swirl is described as a highlighter with prismatech shimmer. It is a soft medium mauve with a muted pearl finish. The cake gives off very little pay off with a fluffy brush. The texture is smooth and it feels very light. This shade would be better used as a light blush on medium to deep skin tones. On lighter tones, it will produce a dusty rose glow.
Mirabella Bronzed Mineral Highlighting Powder – Burnt Copper
Burnt Copper is described as a mineral-based bronzer with a primatech shimmer. This shade is a soft milk chocolate with a pinkish undertone and a pearl finish. The texture is very smooth and firm but the pay off is not very good. It takes several swipes of the brush to get enough product to apply. The shimmer is very light in this product but it gives a warm glow to medium to dark tones.
Mirabella Bronzed Mineral Highlighting Powder – Baked Sand
Baked Sand is described as a highlighter with prismatech shimmer. It is a pearl sierra brown with a slightly taupe undertone. The cake gives off very little pay off with a fluffy brush. The texture is smooth and it feels very light. This shade gives off a slightly sun kissed tone to medium to dark skin tones. On lighter tones, it will be well used as a soft bronzer or a contour shade.
Mirabella Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder – Swirling Pearl
Swirling Pearl is described as a luxurious pearl with a soft texture. This shade is a multidimensional nude peach with a iridecent champagne shimmer. The pay off is very good with this product and yields a lot of product with little effort. This would be a great universal highlight for all skin tones depending on the amount applied and blended.

Product | These bronzers and shimmers are described as mineral-based highlighters with prismtech shimmers to add a subtle sheen to the skin. However, the only highlighter that I reviewed that had prismatic shimmer is the Swirling Pearl Powder. The setting of the cake makes it appears to have a prismatic reflection but on the skin it gives off a soft pearlecent finish.
Pigmentation | The pigmentation of this product is really good once you get loose from the cake. The setting of the bronzer is a beautiful design but it makes it very hard to get product onto the brush. Once on the skin the product has great coverage.
Application | The pay off of the cake in the compact is okay, but it could be better. As a bronzer a soft brush should be able to get enough product off the cake to apply. Unfortunately, it takes several swirls of the brush to get product. However, the product itself is very soft and smooth if a firmer brush is used or cake is scraped off onto a palette before application.
Texture | The texture is very smooth and soft. Feels very light when applied and does not cause a drying appears on the skin. The product does not streak when applied and feels very light when blended.
Longevity | The product did not fade after over 6 hours and gave of a subtle pearl finish to the skin.
Quality Of Ingredients | This product does not include any animal products.
Overall | Even though these products are not necessarily prismatic, they are still excellent bronzers. The available shades cover a vast amount of skin tones from fair to dark and have great coverage. They can used as bronzers, blushes or as a a contour. In addition to this, the Swirling Pearl is a great buy because of it’s universal, large size and unique luster. It is reminiscent of a discontinued extra dimensional MAC shadow. It is something I suggest anyone check out.
