Beauty Heroes‘ most recent makeup discovery, the Minimalist Collection by Gressa, is after my own beauty-loving heart. We all know that I love Gressa and as it’s expanded it’s product line, that love has just gone deeper and deeper. As I said on my Instagram, when I think of Gressa, I think of natural, sultry beauty that is versatile. Me, but prettier. Somehow the products they develop are made to work WITH the skin, not just on it, and you look so radiantly you, it’s ridiculous.
The Minimalist Collection offers over $114 dollars at just $45, here’s what you get:
Gressa Eye Tints in Obscur & Aureo (Full Size) – This velvet to cream formulation is super pigmented with gorgeous minerals. They layer on the eyelid so beautiful and resist creasing. I find that they are super versatile, from a light daytime layer to deep dramatic pigment, they smudge well with fingers during application and can be buffed with a makeup brush for a seamless look. I even use Obscur as an eyeliner and below the waterline. Obscur is a rich, chocolatey brown with both warm and cool purple undertones – truly gorgeous. Aureo is the a gorgeous, shimmering champagne gold that looks great all over the lid or as a strategic highlight.
Lumiére in Eva (Full Size) – This is a stunning pigmented serum for cheeks, eyes and lips with an emollient base that is pretty much like a treatment oil, so you’re beautifying as you wear. The shade is perfectly bronze, not too orange, not too cool but leaves your complexion looking healthy with the right amount of glow. If you’re familiar with Gressa’s permanent liquid bronzer, this one is a little easier to work with, and translates easier to an eye gloss and lip stain, too!
Gressa Eye Tint Brush – I can’t say I’ve ever found a brush so perfectly shaped or built for cream and liquid shadows, the angles cut the eye crease just-so. Not to mention its vegan and hand-crafted.

ABOUT BEAUTY HEROES
If you haven’t hopped on board with the Beauty Heroes subscription just yet, we need to have a serious talk. These boxes are an enhancement (or fantastic introduction) to your green beauty journey – I have pretty much loved every single discovery and trust me when I say that what’s to come is pure excitement and pleasure. At some point though, the subscription service will be capped to ensure the best experience for those involved. You don’t want to be left out on this exploration; it’s simply one of the best discovery systems.
As you may (or may not) know, this service was created with ingredient integrity in mind. It’s a monthly subscription box and for the price of $39 per month, you get at least one full-size product comprised of “HERO” ingredients. This makes it different than other subscriptions on the market, in that you aren’t getting deluxe samples, but you’re able to dive deeply into a product and get to know the brand on a singular basis. In the same shipment you usually get a smaller Sidekick product (or more) that is a miniature portion of a product from the same line that compliments the full-size version, another way to explore a brand and see how it works into your routine. Typical value of the box is $85 dollars and above. So you’re at least getting double what you’re paying, if not much more (and it’s usually well over $100). From time to time there’s also Beauty & Health Discoveries that can be bought as an addition.
Aside from the actual products, one thing we treasure about the box is that it’s educational. So often choosing clean alternative products can be overwhelming. Beauty Heroes always comes with a pocket guide that goes into detail about each product and also why it’s a HERO. There are also resources that explain the Villains, or the things we should avoid at all cost. It’s great to toss into your bag and pull out any time you’re shopping or researching products. With every box we learn more and more about the decisions to make and it becomes like second nature.
Oh, and box subscribers get 15% off of the Beauty Heroes Clean Beauty Shop, which has every Hero Product featured, so if you love it you can always replenish your stock at a discount!
